How many of you will be attending the SIEC meeting today? If it will get me $15 off my electric bill, I will be there. Who knows, maybe I will even win a prize. That would be awesome. I know they have some that are $50 off your bill. I can only dream.

Happy birthday wishes are sent to Lawrence Ragsdale, Danny Ginger, Judy Castleman, Lori Jones and to my special granddaughter, Jordyn Elizabeth VanMeter, who will be 15. Time is just flying by so fast, and as I get older, it flies that much faster. I do hope everyone had a great day.

Happy anniversary wishes are sent to Louise and Gig Blanchard.

I heard if you are interested in ham radios, a class will be held on Aug. 14 and 15 at the Metropolis Fire Station, located on the corner of Seventh and Pearl streets from 4-8 p.m.

For more information, contact Charley Richey at 618-309-6911.

Our folks here in the area have lost several friends lately. It is so hard to let them go. My heart breaks for each one of their family members and friends: LaNell Meyer, John Neill and Howard Windhorst. They will be missed.

I hope you have a wonderful week, folks. Take time to appreciate and love all that surrounds you, even those squirrels and raccoons that are forever emptying my feeders.
