Ooooooh I just have to tell you, my little old tubby hubby Wayne and I have just come back from a local restaurant and I'm so disappointed that I'm not even going to tell you the name of it.

One time when my dad was a kid, he was out riding his father's new French racing bicycle. Little did he know, his neighbor's horse was on the loose.

What a wonderful surprise to read the article about Mrs. Davis, the longtime Waynedale kindergarten teacher. Mrs. Davis' picture looked just as I remembered her almost 40 years ago.

I was in Mrs. Davis' kindergarten class of 1966-67 at the old Waynedale School on Elzey Street. I remember her as a caring and compassionate teacher whose valuable lessons will live with me forever. As I remember, she was a stickler for manners and taught us to care for others who were less fortunate than us. I...

It was rumored that at Fort Wayne International Airport this week, an individual later discovered to be a public school teacher, was arrested trying to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a setsquare, a slide rule and a calculator.
