Geez, Louise, another week and weekend with rain, cold and wind. Sure hope Memorial Day weekend will be good for parades, picnics and outdoor plans. We can only wait and see what Mother Nature has in store for us. I think we’ve had enough rain to last for quite some time and we need sun and warm weather. Folks really want to work in their gardens and get their hanging baskets out, but with the rain and wind, that’s kinda hard to do. Then, we have the bear that likes to take down bird feeders and walk through the gardens; also the deer like to eat the nice leaves that are growing on a newly planted apple tree. Oh, don’t forget, there are woodchucks and chipmunks that like to ruin things too. Sometimes you can’t win for trying, but we keep trying.
KIDS……if you’d like to march in the Memorial Day parade on the 28th, meet at the Post Office at 9:45 a.m. Sam Burke will be in charge. Service will be held in the Park at 10 a.m., with Clinton Higley, Jr. being our guest speaker.
Congratulations to TJ and Allison Lowden, Marlton, NJ, on the birth of their first baby. Jase Thaddeus was born on May 14th, weighing in at 9 lbs. 6 oz. All are doing well. Happy grandparents are Ted and Mary Lowden, Maple Terrace.

HINT: “With tick season being quite bad this year, get a lint roller with adhesive layers. Roll on your clothes every so often to remove ticks. Essential oils are also good for keeping ticks from climbing on you. You can spray it on clothing and rub it into your skin. Best kinds are lavender, pennyroyal, lemongrass, lemon and eucalyptus.” (Hope this helps.)
Sympathy from the community to the Woodruff family on the passing of “Woody”. Great person and was as asset to Dushore and surrounding areas. He will be missed.
Sympathy from the community on the passing of Mrs. Joan Heath. Very friendly and will miss seeing her riding in the truck around town to pick up the trash. Always had a smile and a wave.
Bridge work is coming along, slowly. With the bad weather they couldn’t work for a few days and then there was a tornado warning that didn’t help.
Check out the Lopez website for pictures of the progress. Pretty interesting. One of the guys who worked for Wagman on the bridge going toward Mildred, is also working on the bridge in town. Small world.
Before we know it, the month of May will be over. Hardly seems possible that time has moved that fast. I know there are probably things going on in the County, so keep an eye on the Sully for that information.
Happy Birthday wishes to Jake Gardner who will be 90 on the 26th. If you see him around, wish him a happy day. Michele Craig has a birthday the same day. Nick DeSanto has a birthday on the 29th and Bruno Day celebrates on the 31st. Have a good day.
B’s gang sends wishes to Sandy Pardoe as she celebrates her special day on the 31st. Hope it’s great.
Happy Anniversary to Tony and Patti Sneidar, 26th; Joe and Diane Fanning, 28th; and Joyce and Jack Walsh, 29th. Congrats and many more.
Guess that’s the news for now. Enjoy your week and hope for NICE, warm, sunny weather. Have news, call me at 570-928-9238; mail me; see me; or e-mail me at email@example.com. I’ll get it in for you. Thanks for reading and I’ll be here next time.
THIS IS JERRY, THE GUY THAT ALSO WORKED ON THE NEW BRIDGE ON 487 GOING TO MILDRED. JERRY OPERATES THE PILE DRIVER. HE WILL BE BACK TO DRIVE MORE PILES ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE BRIDGE.
