DIXON — Happy autumn everybody. Some things I like about fall are the colored leaves, re-energized flowers (my spring primroses are back), vegetable harvest (a bumper crop of volunteer squash), no more mosquitoes, and the days are usually cooler.

RONAN — Where has the year gone? When it flies by so fast, does that mean that we are too busy and should slow down? Well, that won’t happen this time of year with Christmas looming in the not to distant future. We will be starting BINGO up again on Friday, Oct. 5 following the noon meal. This...
