Critter Corner: We have many critters and they're so cute. We also keep an eye on Mama Hawk, as she is very busy these days. She must have more little ones than we thought, she is out there hunting all the time. We haven't seen Papa Hawk, and guess he is taking time off or working elsewhere. We're just enjoying all the critters we have and are blessed to be able to see them in action.

How to dispose of your old flags respectfully: There are receptacles in front of the VFW Hall at 140 S. Thompson. You may take old American flags and they will be disposed of in the proper and respectful manor with appropriate ceremonies. Being an Army brat, I feel our flags all need to be respected, and not just dumped in the trash.
