It seems as though Mother Nature has really turned on the heat. Predictions are that it will be a few degrees cooler later this week. Some folks got a slight shower but we weren’t so lucky.

Congratulations on the U.S. beating Japan to win the women’s softball championship Monday evening.

Harold Berkstresser spent Monday evening with Kate Berkstresser.

Randy, Trudy, Dylan and Tristan Gelvin returned home last week from a vacation at Fenwick Island, Del., after Tristan competed in a baseball tournament at Sports At The Beach, Rehoboth, a few days earlier. This past weekend Tristan’s team, Newville Premiere, along with local teammates Kyle Schoen and Dalton Garlock, travelled to Palymyra and finished third in a tourn-ament.

Mrs. Jean Norris, a volunteer from Mission Central, was guest speaker at Knobsville and Fairview churches on Sunday.

Thank you to all who helped make the spaghetti supper a success at Knobs-

United Methodist Church on Saturday evening.

It is hard to believe school will be starting in about three weeks. What a short summer!

Congratulations to the bus service of the Helman family who have transported the children for a lot of years, starting with Ralph’s father, Sam, as the service will be taken over by another company this yer.

Martha Berkstresser and daughter Katherin spent a couple weeks with Martha’s mother in Florida. Upon return, Katherin has gone to Pittsburgh for nursing school.

Household Hint: Feed the birds. Save your old net onion bags. They made good hanging baskets for suet. The holes in the bags allow the birds easy access to the suet. Save all your seeds from squash and other vegetables by spreading thinly on a plate to dry.
