  • Horn was a tremendous asset to community, will be missed

    To the editor:

    My mother and I own the Rainbow Thrift Shop on the corner of Pike and Walnut Street. Anyone who has an emergency or fire, etc. we never turn them away for help with clothes, furniture or anything that is necessary. If it wasn’t for Clarence Horn, John Hodge and the Salvation Army, along with local churches’ participation, a lot of it couldn’t be done because we do it out of our own finances and we are both on a fixed income.

  • Hope for ‘Good (and not-so Good) Daughters’

    When my sister was little, she wiped spaghetti sauce from her mouth with a piece of bread.

    This is a significant event in our family’s history because, as the Good Daughter, it is probably the one and only time Peggy ever got in trouble.

    In a nanosecond, Peggy did the bread-wipe and Dad reached over and whacked her hand, which stunned us all. Not that Dad whacked one of us, but that it was Peggy — the Good Daughter!
