  • Ben Thomas opened the door and pulled out a rifle.

    “Are you familiar with the Henry?” he asked in a stern southern accent.  “They’ve been makin’ them since 1890.”

    The rifle was pointed upward and was stuffed with a bright orange cord, an indication that it was safe for the handling, according to Thomas.

    He made a series of rehearsed movements, illustrating the safest way to place a weapon of this sort into the hands of another.

  •  The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 383, Old Town, is having an Easter Dinner – ham and all fixings – on Sunday, April 4, from 12:30  p.m. to 3:30 p.m.  A nominal donation of $5.00 is asked. 

      This dinner is for American Legion,  Sons of the American Legion and Auxiliary  members, their families and guests.  Not everyone has someone – so don’t be alone – come spend the afternoon with us and have a good meal was well!

  • Anyone can enjoy the treats of summer with careful planning and shopping. TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) recommends these substitutions to lighten up a traditional cookout.

    Substitute non-fat plain yogurt or non-fat mayonnaise in popular picnic salads.

    Choose lean cuts of meat for grilling. Try ground turkey for burgers or marinated flank steak.

    Pack plenty of fresh vegetables and low fat dips for crunching, air popped popcorn for munching, and a variety of interesting diet drinks for sipping.
