Hello All,

I have the darnedest luck, I could not get on my laptop, wouldn’t open so I could use it until this Saturday afternoon. Weird. Too modern for elderly folks I guess. (Me.) I write this column for my readers. Sometimes not much happening in Knox.

I read that our editor Sarah Reynolds will be doing other things now. Thanks for putting up with me.


My sympathy to my friend Siobhan Harwood on the recent loss April 18 of her dad, Julian Harwood, 89 years old. You may remember him from the Cape and once Maine. He was the FEMA guy around town from Pocasset, Mass. He is missed.

Moved away

Shawna N.M. Barnes and Justin Barnes are in Wisconsin since April 2. Shawna writes a blog about her disease, myasthenia gravis. She is settling in and has a new care team in place. She has been to the VA there as well. She says it was way less stressful than it could have been. I hope she does well there.

Lori is back from Florida

Lori’s Cafe is open now, Thursday-Saturday, 8 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sunday, 8 a.m.-2 p.m. She has been baking up a storm, too. Also all kinds of specials, eat in or take out. Right in Liberty. Grab an ice cream at John’s while there in the area.
