The setting sun's last fading light,
Was hidden by a lowering cloud.
The sky was black, as was the night,
The pelting rain was beating loud.


"Ah, wintertime can be so bleak,"

But when the sun again arose,
There, gleaming, was a snow-clad tree.
A scene no artist could compose,
Was suddenly revealed to me.


The trees were blazingly aflame,
And sparkled with a brilliant hue.

Dear Readers,


I will share a FIRST hand account of the quintuplets born Oct 28th at Norton's Suburban Hospital in Louisville:

An air of expectation, concern and excitement hung in the air every day after Stephanie Powell was admitted to the hospital on Labor Day. She is a Nurse Practitioner and well known to the nurses who work the level 3 nursery. Now, if Stephanie had been about 5' 6" or so, it might not have caused such concern, but little Stephanie only stands 5 foot tall. Stephanie...

No, Dr. Tom Hayhurst is the guy on the left!  That’s ICY from the Komets in the middle. Tom’s grandson, Christopher and his daughter, Anne.

I thought it would be great for our readers to learn about our councilman, Dr. Tom Hayhurst. We have his column in The Waynedale News and are kept well informed about our city government and in particular, the items that affect our area. He really means it when he invites people to call him with their thoughts, concerns, and suggestions.
