Since the dawn of the horror movie, one monster has outlived all the rest. One creature has terrified more people that Godzilla, The Creature, and Frankenstein combined. His name is Dracula, and just one man can kill him—Van Helsing.

Van Helsing tells the story of its title character, played by Hugh Jackman (X-Men), a man who cannot remember his past and has been hired by a secret society within the church to slay evil creatures such as Mr. Hyde and the Wolfman. Van Helsing is sent to...

Posing for the Food Drive Collection, from the Gabriel Station Post Office is one of Waynedale’s finest Postal Carriers, Bob Tudor.

Dear Editor:

 

On Saturday, May 8th, rural and city carriers of the U. S. Postal Service and their volunteers collected 359,000 pounds of food during its national food drive. Food was collected in all 50 states with the above collection from Allen, DeKalb, Steuben, Wells, and Whitley counties.

Dear Mae Julian, 

Dear Mae,

I loved your dandelion story in the last issue of The Waynedale News.‑‑Many people believe, people like us who love dandelions are odd ducks, but they're the blind ones.‑ God created a symphony of color for us by creating all the different colored plants and living things.‑ Monet would never have chosen to paint a modern "all green," yard because it would be so lacking in color and it would be boring.‑ Photon's reflected from each plant combine in‑unique...
