DENTIST - HOME COUNTRY

Details

Those of us who call this little valley home have a unique blessing in the form of Perry, our dentist. Yes, when we go to get the fangs fixed up at O'Dontall Dental, down in the old brick building near the office of the Valley Weekly Miracle, the grinding and scraping and numbing and lip shaking is accompanied by...well...acting.

You see Perry worked his way through dental school by treading the boards...acting on stage, that is. When all was said and done and he received his final mouth...

PLAN AHEAD FOR YOUR OWN FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE DAY

Details Shawn Wall, Edward Jones

This issue, we celebrate Independence Day with fireworks, sparklers, picnics and parades. Amidst the hoopla, though, it's always important to reflect on the many freedoms we enjoy in this country.

June is National Adopt a Shelter Cat Month, so it is only fitting that I share this cat quilt conundrum with you.

SHERLOCK HOLMES - HOME COUNTRY

Details

I heard the rumor down at the feed store, later in the afternoon. We had a real live Sherlock Holmes in our community, and he was our local barber, Curtis Naismith.

"What do you mean?" I asked Julie, the stout girl hired to carry 100-pound sacks of grain out to waiting trucks.
