Our sympathy is extended to Bradley Miller and family of Maddensville on the recent loss of his father, Jimmy Miller.

Amanda Yocum recently had bone construction and hip replacement surgery in Hershey. A fund, "Amanda's Miracle Fund," has been established for her medical expenses at the Community State Bank. >Amanda is scheduled to begin her physical therapy this week. Her Grandma Morgan may soon follow as she had "an issue" with the vacuum last week and broke her ankle, shortly thereafter having "an issue" with a wheelchair and badly spraining the other ankle. Grandpa Albert has taken over the roll of nurse-maid for these two ladies. Please keep him in your prayers.

A ham potpie dinner to benefit Amanda Yocum will be held on June 13 from 4 to 7 p.m. at Orbisonia United Methodist Church Outreach Center. The cost is $9 for all you can eat and $6.50 for take outs. There will also be bake sale items available during the dinner.

If you haven't been to Maddensville lately, we are proud to say we now have a traffic light. Bridge construction near the Methodist cemetery and Madden farm will be starting soon. Perhaps the funniest part of the traffic signal is the one that stops traffic leaving the picnic island. This time of year, it is probably the busiest place in our town.

Enjoying a fantastic meal on Saturday evening at the Hickory Bridge Farm near Ortanna were J.R. and Kim Watkin, Steve and Karen Grissinger, and Tom and Mamie Streightiff. If you like a nostalgic trip down memory lane located in a beautiful farm set- ting, this place will make you smile.

Gell well wishes to Clay Cantrell who had the stomach flu for the past week. Also wishes for his pap, Boyd Varner, who is battling gout.
