Barefoot And Wagons
Volume 49, Issue 2

By Sandy Drawers

What a difference a week makes! From cold storms to hot, hazy days we’ve had them all since last issue. Memorial Day was a hit here in town, despite a mixed forcast of possible evening showers. Finally people understand that the weathe is often different here than in the city or in suburbia. Summer seems to be here!

Heard Loud and Clear
The Senior Citizen’s cart is heating up again. Outside the police department shouts and nasty exchanges are not uncommon. Seems the greatest generation is not always so.
The town is working on BayBerry walk up from the fire department all last week. How about some cement to raise Bay View Walk, particularly in front of Love and Housers? The at times 1/2-foot puddle only cleared up after several days of heat and sun. It was an obstacle course for those off the ferry heading east. Yuck!

In the first dart match of the season Albatross defeated Flynns at 7-2. Way to go tross!

Congratulations to Maguires’s co-owners Jim and Marnie Betz on their second son, Logan, born last week. Wasn’t Marnie incredible biking around town until the moment of labor? Wow—beautiful and in shape!
