    tomgseymour@gmail.com 338-9746 Last Thursday’s snow seemed terribly out of place, given the warm temperatures that preceded it. Certainly, though, that was winter’s last hurrah. Now it’s springtime going forward from here. And with spring, we will soon see plant sales, yard sales and also the Frankfort Congregational Church’s monthly takeout turkey suppers.

    338-9746 tomgseymour@gmail.com I’m writing this column April 19, Patriot’s Day. We hear little, if anything, today about this important date in our country’s history, even though April 19 marks the date of the opening hostilities of the American Revolution. The battles of Lexington and Concord took place April 19, 1775. Ralph Waldo Emerson immortalized the date when he wrote “The Concord Hymn” in 1837. Much has …

    tomgseymour@gmail.com 338-9746 The only news I have to report is that it was very cold this past week. Coincidentally, the price of home heating oil rose 10 cents. This betokens hard times for working folks.
