To the Editor:

On September 30th, I witnessed a fabulous sight. Something I thought was gone with the changing of time. You know, all the hussle and bustle, not having enough time to enjoy one another as a family. But there it was, that sunny Saturday, families in the park for a picnic, mothers, fathers, kids, and grandparents - families together. I'm speaking of the 1st Annual Waynedale Picnic.

It brought back such fond memories of when my daughter was little. Sundays were our quality...

I wanted the citizens of Waynedale to know that kindness is still a way of life for many.

I recalled that a business by the name of Favory's was fairly close to my new home. I took a chance and dialed their number. After explaining my problem, I was told someone would...

He is so funny at times but other times he can be so obnoxious and revolting, the little dear. Anyway we have been on the go, let me tell you. We've been here and there and just everywhere sampling the good food that all the vendors turn out at the many festivals in the area.

We don't stray too far from home for them; we don't have to; they are...

The surprise ending is one of the most effective, but challenging, devices in story telling. It takes careful planning and talent. Often a movie will pull out a shocker without setting it up from the beginning, thinking that it will satisfy the audience.
