Our sympathy is extended to the family of Dorothy Storto.

Mamie Streightiff and Jennie Ramsey recently attended a bridal shower for Breann Fore, fiance of Jason Hall.

Micah Ramsey, son of Brian and Emily Ramsey, spent the weekend visiting with grandparents Roger and Pat Ramsey.

Mamie Streightiff would like to wish her “old” friend, Roger Hoover, a happy retirement.

We hear Gary Greenland was feeling a little under the weather. The folks in Maddensville wish him better days ahead.

Trudy Fix, Thane Fix and Chelsey Hockenberry had dinner with Roger, Pat and Micah Ramsey on Saturday evening.

George Harper took a spill on the ice but is on the mend. We wish him speedy healing.

Others of us are glad we are still in one piece after learning how to ice skate everywhere we tried to walk for several weeks. (Who says we don’t get much exercise in the winter?) We are so thankful for the sunshine and even the rain that took the snow and ice away.

Ken and Jean Brown are up to their ankles in mud and would much rather have snow making everything so much prettier and cleaner! With the high winds we have been having, even the mud won’t be here long.

On Sunday afternoon, Mamie Streightiff attended a baby shower for Nichole Weko in Huntingdon.

Visiting recently with the Steve and Karen Grissinger family were Travis and Angela Madden, Donna Locke, Tom and Mamie Streightiff, Rick Anderson, Dusty and Sandy Hilbert, Fred Horne, Gary Mitchell and Brent Carlson.

Tom Streightiff visited with Gene, Nancy and Travis Cornelius on Monday afternoon. Travis was busy chatting on his cellphone.

Steve and Karen Grissinger visited with Mike, Patty, Chris and Kevin Pintozzi, and Steve, Sue, Ben and Robyn Haines on Saturday evening.

Tammy and Terri Grissinger and Mark and Destinie Ramsey enjoyed an afternoon of bingo that benefited the Josh Wilt Scholarship Fund on Sunday at Hustontown Firehall.

On Sunday afternoon, Tom and Mamie Streightiff visited with Stanley and Sue Hall.
