Around the town


and happy belated birthday to Sharon Croak, of Farrandsville

Quote of the day

“I don’t believe that if you do good, good things will happen. Everything is completely accidental and random. Sometimes bad things happen to very good people and sometimes good things happen to bad people. But at least if you try to do good things, then you’re spending your time doing something worthwhile.”

— Helen Mirren

Word of the day
