Oh my darlin', oh, my darlin', oh my darlin', Clementine!

Oooooohhh I just have to tell you, Wayne and I have found just the nicest restaurant and the name is of course, you guessed it; Clementine's. And it's not in Waynedale or even Fort Wayne; it's in Columbia City just northwest of here on Route 30. It's only about a half-hour drive, if you don't stop to fool around, and the food is soooo good you'll want to go back again and again. We were antique/garage sale hunting and we happen to...

Sunny and her mom enjoying time together.

To Cindy Cornwell of The Waynedale News from Cindy Nieman,
I'm going to write a few notes about the Cystic Fibrosis Benefit for "Sunny" Madisun Madalinski that was held at the South West Conservation Club on June 28th 2003.

We had 28 days to prepare and no money to get started. Without the promotion from The Waynedale News and help from the other sponsors, we couldn't have raised money to pay for the benefit or help the Madalinski family with all the added expenses. Our menu was roast pork...

It's Contagious!


Thoughts About the Great Flood of 2003

Rev. Chris Madison

Pastor of Calvary United Methodist Church


Do you remember the past several summers when the temperature in July was 95 degrees, plus? It doesn't seem too long ago that we were complaining that our lawns were brown and dead! We wondered where the water went. Now we know! Nature was saving it up for July of 2003!

The whole Midwest has been battered by thunderstorms and flooded by rain like many of us haven't...

Ode to the Summer Movie

A Review by Kasey Butcher


It's July let's give a cheer.
And summer movies all are here.
So load the friends up in the car
To check out some sequels that are up to par.
A second movie's hard to do
But Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle and Red, White, and Blonde really pull through.

The former stars some real cool chicks
The Angel's love to get (and give) their power kicks.
Cameron Diaz plays Natalie
She's sweet, she's brilliant, and kind of silly.
Alex is played by Lucy Lui...

Oooooohhh I just have to tell you, we just got back off vacation and almost everywhere I went the food was delicious and I tried all kinds of different things. I'm so stuffed I could just pop a girdle stave. In fact I had to get one in a bigger size. You know you can't hardly find a decent girdle anywhere anymore. The best places to go are to those little shops where you get medical stuff like wheelchairs and walkers.

Wayne said that he saw them use a girdle like mine on that animal rescue...

Dear Mr. Barleycorn, 

As per Doctor B's opinion on outside issues, in the last Here's To Your Health article, it seems Doctor B is making complicated stuff of something simple! When a sponsor works Step 4, (made a searching and fearless truth inventory of ourselves), and Step 5: (admitted to God and another human being the exact nature of our wrongs), it almost always fixes their other phobia's, disorders, symptoms and alcoholism and addictions. So long as they continue through the rest...
