From the Editor-news and notes
The July 4th Parades and Fireworks
were fantastic this year. The parade routes were filled and the parks were packed whilewatching the night sky light up in fabulous colors.
The 56th Annual Lakewood Mardi Gras
was great no matter what how hot the weather was, 110 degree’s in the shade. Fridaynight was the Old Timers baseball game. The kids turned out to ride the rides and have their favorite Mardi Gras treats. Saturday wasthe start of the annul 2 day baseball tournament between the Lakewood and Townsend ball fields. And Sunday, was the annualMardi Gras Parade. Attendance was low throughout the weekend due to the extreme heat but everyone did have fun.I would like to thank Yana Holdener for taking the photo’s of the Mardi Gras weekend events. She did a great job. Watch for moreof her work to appear on future pages.
What Did We Ever Do Without It ?
Google recently announced a new social media link called Google +. How many of you jumped from your daily postings on Facebook to Google +. Did you get your invite or are you still waiting for more of them to openup? I got in and find it is a bit tricky to get around but I hope to figure it out as time permits.

The weather– It’s SUMMER and don’t we all know it.
We’ve had some high and low temps mixed with high humidity. What thatmeans, it’s been hot and steamy. Our family and friends in the Chicagoland area, about one million of them, went without power forover 12 hours on July 11th. A storm blew through knocking down high lines and trees for many miles and it only took a short whilefor all of it to happen. No, there wasn’t a tornado but I’m sure some might have thought so. Just very high winds.
August Birthday Wishes to all of our friends and neighbors;
to my kid sister Laura who turns 50. I wish I could be there to cele-brate with her. My niece Melissa Goodenough,
