  • Fly the flag proudly on June 14

    Hello Readers: A reminder ee another week passes with very little rain ee and the heat rises. For the safety of your health, drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration. Also, stating the obvious, never leave a pet or child in a hot, parked car.

    Saturday, June 14 is Flag Day. A short historyee In 1885, Mr. Cigrand, a schoolteacher in Wisconsin, arranged for his pupils to observe June 14, as “Flag Birthday” or “Flag Day” which was the 108th anniversary of the adoption of “The Stars and Stripes.”

  • Congratulations to Landing's lady golfers

    Word has gotten out that Gladys Beatty, Nancy Rife and Kay Shoaf all received “chip in pins” during the recent Palm Tees Golf League awards luncheon, when Nancy and Kay also earned their “birdie pins.” Kay was honored with a very special award; an abacus for having carded the highest number of strokes for a single hole.

    These ladies join members from other Corridor communities playing the 9-hole course at Oak Run ee where, Nancy tells me, they count all of their putts.

  • Special speaker at Democratic Club meeting

    Did you ever hear about the practice called “pay it forward?” This is more or less how it works.

    Look for an opportunity to help someone. Then suggest that the person pay you back by doing a good deed for someone else. That person can then do likewise.

    This doesn’t necessarily have to involve money. There are other ways such as offering to extend a helping hand.

    When someone has done something nice for you, pay it forward. It will leave you with a good feeling. Kindness to others can keep radiating outward.

  • Fourth of July celebration tickets on sale

    There are very few of us who bother to rearrange or discard furnishings and knickknacks in our home. I just came across information that suggests doing so can actually inspire changes in our lives.

    For personal reasons, I’ve had to move my furniture to different rooms. Since doing so, it’s given me the impetus to move and sometimes discard knickknacks that have stayed in the same place since moving to my villa.

    Hello readers: My grateful thanks to Harry Chambers for his kind words of introduction. Thank you to Cora Frontin as well for her timeless dedication in writing this column. Theirs is some act to follow and I am humbled at the prospect.

  • Spreading Landing sunshine for 21 years

    The Marion Landing Sunshine Committee beginnings may go back to prehistoric times – but we do know it was kept alive during 1987 by then-resident Nan Fisher. Nan was aided and abetted by Gerry Lane and Doris Gorsky, who is still among us. These women kept active by sending get well and sympathy cards to Marion Landing neighbors.

  • Bahamas cruise raffle to benefit Hospice

    I hope you all enjoyed your Mothers Day last Sunday. When we speak of mothers, we should really think of mothering women.

    Sometimes an aunt, grandmother or mother of an adopted child has given the mothering. A biological mother is just one of many women who take on this role.
