Hope Springs
by Sheila Vosen-Shorten
We know it’s spring when the
robins return. We knew it was a
miracle when Robby came home, as
a herald for the wonder and passion
for life in God’s creation.
For years now the robins have
feasted on the dry cat kibble that
we set out on our back porch, for
the outdoor cats. Last summer,
my mother pointed out a flurry
of feathers near the porch stoop.
Evidently, a cat had gotten a robin by
the tail.
A few days later, I noticed a
tail-less robin hopping around in
the yard. He took cover under the The robin Perry named “Robby”

one day in late October, most of the robins left our yard.
During the next week, we looked for Robby amongst
the stragglers, and I wistfully resigned his fate to the
migration call. The deepest meaning within him drove

Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter!
Anyone who has ever saw a Freddie Prez show at the Northeast
Montana Fairwill remember that catchy little tune. The month of
May was Ford Peanut Butter Month, and Hi-Line Ford’s Peanut
Butter Drive was a success thanks to a generous community.
Over 300 pounds were delivered to the Valley County Food Bank
last week. Peanut butter is a highly desirable staple for food
banks, a rich source of protein, kid-friendly and delicious! So
it is especially desirable in the summer months when school
is out and many children lose access to school nutrition
programs. Pictured are Laurie Koessl, Pat Hallett, Hi-Line
Ford’s Josh Sillerud, Marilyn Smith and Kathy Ramsbacher.
