  • Much fellowship shared at 2017 Lawson Reunion

    By Patti Lawson

        The rain held off Sunday, July 2, thankfully, for the Lawson Family Reunion. I think the threat of rain may have kept some away. We still had almost 80 to come out to — yes, it will always be Camp Howard in Pine Orchard. It was a fun day with way too much good food to try — but I did a pretty good job. I got my coconut pie, so all is well!

    The letter

        My brother Jim joined the Air Force in 1955 with two of his high school friends. Jim was called upon to study and complete a course in Serbo-Croatian language at the University of Indiana in Bloomington, Ind. As he could not explain what his mission was to be, we had no idea what he was doing or the danger that it entailed.

    Will the titanium last?

        In order to ease some of the constant pain, I had to endure several Cortisone injections directly into the joints. They never lasted long enough, but it was “protocol” for this type of surgery. Then there came a time during these few months that I was referred to an ENT specialist for an evaluation. After the initial exam, he asked, “How long have you been missing the left eardrum?”
        I said, “huh?”

  • Coalfield

        On July 22, an Old Timey Gospel Singing was held at the Roane Community Seventh Day Adventist Church on Patton Lane in Harriman. We enjoyed many special vocals and band renditions of gospel singing over the past months and thoroughly enjoyed them. Approximately 75 people attended on this date. We are anxiously awaiting the next segment in these events.
        Joan Wormsley came home this week and is doing very well.
    Judy Adcock is doing better and is out of the nursing home, staying with friends.
