We sort of got a sample of 'Ole Man Winter with chilly breezes

over the weekend. Maybe it will be a bit warmer this week.

We extend sympathy to the family and relatives of Nathan Henry, who passed away on Saturday.

We are sorry to hear Lester Swope has not been so well. We send get well wishes to him.

We send get well wishes to Ann Hawkins and Alice Sipes, who have not been feeling so well.

Hustontown Fire Co. will sponsor an open stage on Saturday, January 24. The kitchen opens at 5:00 p.m. Music starts at 6:00 p.m. Come in out of the cold and join them for the evening.

Hustontown Fir Co. will sponsor a quarter beef shoot on Saturday, January 31. Twelve-, 16- and 20-gauge shells will be furnished. Various meat prizes will be awarded for normal shoot. The last round will be for a quarter of beef. Shooters must shoot all 11 rounds to qualify for the beef round. Guns with less than a 640 choke or sleeved guns will not be permitted. If in doubt, guns may be checked day of shoot.
