Our sympathy is extended to the family and relatives of Anna Maye Lucas, who passed away last week.

It was good to have a nice attendance at Knobsville United Methodist Church as we are in the Lenten season. Hope everyone can get out to the services at different churches.

Our sympathy is extended to the family and relatives of Ted Gregg of Lancaster, formerly of Hustontown, who passed away on Sunday.

Household hint: Saving on freezer containers. Freeze leftover soups, stews and casseroles in containers that you will be cooking food in later. But to avoid having pan and casserole dishes tied up in the freezer, remove food when frozen by dipping the pan in hot water for a few minutes, then place food in labeled freezer box. When ready to cook, the food fits right back into the pan.
