Hope everyone is adjusting to the changing season. I'm not ready for the cooler weather. The changing colors of the leaves are pretty, but it seems like summer went to fast this year.

Happy birthday to Faye Palmer, Mike Dale, Jeff Dale, Glenda Lung, Connie Burrow, Wendy Busnick, John Ring, Jo Marie Fry, Kathy Kruger, Doug Fliger, Kathy Kruger, John Brunner and Jane Teis.

Get well wishes go out to Grace Thomas.

Happy 67th birthday to my brother, Jim Thouvenin on Oct. 9 and a happy 52nd birthday to daughter-in-law, Michelle Trompower on Oct. 10.

Twenty years ago this week: Sarah Marie Bowe was welcomed into the stork club, and congratulations were extended to the new parents and grandparents. Sarah Marie is the new daughter of Lt. Martin and Regina Bowe and was born Sept. 21, 1996 in Bedford, Massachusetts. She weighed 8 pounds 8 ounces and was 20 ° inches long. Her proud grandparents are Robert and Mary Jean Bowe and Frank and Debbie Pfeffer. Her great-grandmothers are Marry Abbott and Sophia Norman. Congratulations, Marty and Gina. (This is the first grandchild on both sides of the family, so she will get a lot of lovin' and spoiling)

Slow down and move over for all road side workers. Ohio's move over law requires motorists to cautiously shift over one lane or slow down if changing lanes is not possible--when passing any vehicle with flashing lights on the side of a road. Its purpose is to protect everyone who works on our roads and everyone who travels on them.

Thought for the week: "Mondays are the potholes in the road of life." --Unknown

I am now a senior citizen, but back when I graduated, a college education was an added accomplishment that some were able to attain. Yet, others got a job prior to graduating and quit school. In today's world, a college degree is very important, but as in the past, there are many students who cannot afford to pay for college. For this reason, the Greater East Canton Community Development Association is working at getting donations to help those students and look ahead to a brighter future. To learn how you can help those East Canton High School grads, stop at the Foltz Community Center to pick up paperwork that will give you information on how you can Help.

Sunday Brunch at the Foltz Community Center will be served Oct. 9 and 23 from 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. The cost is $12 for adults and $6 for children ages 3-10. A Swiss steak dinner will be served Wednesday, Oct 19 from 4:30-7 p.m. The cost is $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 3-10.

Have you heard of T.O.P.S. (Take Off Pounds Sensibly)? The word sensibly is the most important word in the title. They don't claim you will lose 20 pounds in your first month or that you can eat whatever you want and still lose weight. Each week you learn how to deal with losing weight. Sensibly, visit on any Tuesday, at 5:45 p.m. at Mt. Tabor United Methodist Church at 108 E. Walnut St. in East Canton. Meetings last about one hour. Enter off Cedar Street. Stop in for a visit at no charge. Why not get a jump on that New Year's Resolution and start losing a few pounds right now? For more information, call 330-488-2622 or 330-455-9587.

Seniors may visit the Foltz Community Center every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to exercise led by the YMCA Silver Sneakers. Everyone works at their own ability. The cost is free. We seniors like that four letter word. Some of us have been teased about going out to eat after we exercise. An article in the paper, under the Doctors column, said "The best time to eat is after you exercise." It seems exercise starts those fat cells to start burning, and continue for quite some time after. So keep up the great work.

How do you stop a skunk from smelling? Hold it's nose.
