A short break and then it’s running again

August 2, 2013

The last time we talked, Skyler was winning the Egg Festival and Brant was playing at Coveleski Stadium for a charity event.
Since then Skyler and the Wolf Pack have won the Boys’ of Summer League and the end of the year tournament.
Brant and the Chargers won the BPA State tournament, which brought our break from baseball to an entire week over the July Fourth holiday.
We spent that week with friends and family. We enjoyed a great evening with friends and neighbors during a cookout and fireworks show.
We also enjoyed a day at the Warren Dunes with friends.

NAPPANEE — Since 1980, fans of Dolly Parton have strolled to and from work with her “Ode to the Grind” emanating from their lips.

Adapted from the film and featuring a brand-new score by seven-time Grammy Award winner Dolly Parton, “9 to 5: The Musical” opened on Broadway in 2008.
It received 15 Drama Desk Award nominations – the most received by a production in a single year – as well as four Tony Award nominations.

Fireworks ordinance passes first reading

July 27, 2013

NAPPANEE — Fireworks have been causing Police Chief Julie Dijkstra and her department some headaches lately.
Dijkstra told the Nappanee town council during its July 15 meeting that her office handled an abundance of calls about fireworks being set off in residential areas.
“The complaints are from a lot of people who don’t know that we don’t have an ordinance on this,” the police chief said.
“Some who think 11 p.m. is too late for these, and others who think setting them off six weeks before the Fourth (of July) is too soon.”

In the Dailyness of Life ... Special moments that bring peace to the soul

July 27, 2013

In addition to my profession as counselor, I enjoy visiting a local nursing home when my schedule allows it – not only to visit my dear mother who is a resident there, but to bring some smiles to the faces of others as well.
As a young child, my mother often played the piano.
She had many years of experience and her various renditions came from her heart.
Sometimes she played songs that were tricky in timing.
Other times, she played slow and with depth from her spirit.
