Our sympathy is extended to the family and relatives of Charles Sipes, who was killed in an auto accident last Tuesday morning while on his mail route.

Peter and Judy Rusack plan on leaving for their new home in Kansas the first of April. We are going to miss these folks, but we wish them the best of luck in their new location.

Hustontown Fire Co. banquet for members and guests will be held on Saturday, April 2, at 6 p.m.

Household Hint: Water plants. An easy way to water hanging plants without drippy mess. Put a few ice cubes around the edge of the pot, not touching the plant. They will provide a slow watering the soil can absorb. Saves drippy mess if you have hanging plants.
