New Farmers Market is wonderful

Lois Cunningham writes:
I didn't get to the market soon enough for strawberries, but I did make it in time for the lemon bread and for those of you that haven't had her (Caitlyn Bunnell Helm's) lemon bread it is is well worth the trip to the market even if that is all you come away with. Our new farmers market is wonderful, and will be growing every Saturday through the summer. Please come out and support our vendors... there is something for everyone.. --Lois Cunningham

Remembering Loeta Myers: A beautiful and loving lady

Carol Salato Myers writes:
I was deeply saddened to read about Loeta's passing. Earl, Loeta, Mary Ellen, and Joe were our neighbors for many years. I have many fond memories growing up next to such a wonderful family. I visited with Loeta not too long ago and her memory was phenomenal. Every time I was in her house, she always had her Bible nearby, thus a testament to her Christian lifestyle. I will miss her terribly, but always remember her as a beautiful and loving lady. - Carol Salato Myers
