Pauline's Corner: Homemade gifts are from the heart

As the weather slowly turns, some of you are thinking ahead. Yes, Christmas is on the horizon, and homemade gifts are so from the heart.

I found a magazine at the Rebecca lodge in Fisher that was written by Violet Rutherford in 1988. In it are the easiest jams, jellies and preserves.

I would like to thank all the special people who helped me while I was crossing guard at the Liquor Locker at the corner of Chanute Street and Route 136, the Rantoul police and ground workers salting my area, plowing when needed.
A special thanks to Danny Russell for all the concerns, help, keeping in touch with all his crossing guards.

The student being referred to was not just in his underpants. (He had on a Speedo swimsuit and cape).  
It was super hero theme night at the football game, and the student was dressed as Captain Underpants. This is a beloved children’s character with many books in publication.

There are so many retired people here, and I have lived among them.
I am a military mom; my son put in 22 years.

Art = Life: The prepared mind sees opportunity

Only the prepared mind can see and grab the rare chance or good opportunity.
