Our sympathy is extended to the family and relatives of George Mellott, who passed away.

Our sympathy is extended to the family and relatives of Howard Sipes, who passed away last week.

Shawn and Jackie Berkstresser and Ryan of Slippery Rock were visiting in the area on Sunday.

Household hint: Re-use old pantyhose. They can be rolled in a ball and put in the bottom of flower pots to hold moisture. Also are good to tie up plants because of soft texture.
