SYMPATHY. Heartfelt sympathy to the family of Junior Goodman. He is survived by his wife, Yvonne, and children Pat, Jeff, Peggy, Teresa, Glenda and Karen, and many grandchildren. Junior was born and raised in Howevalley. He also read my column each week.

BACK IN THE DAY. Pat Goodman. With the passing of his dad on my mind it brought me back to the days when Pat would stay at our house a lot. He and my big brother, Brod, would hang out together. Pat liked to drive so he played the role of chuaffuer. Once, when I couldn’t walk due to blisters on my feet, Pat would carry me around the house. He was like a big brother.

LAUGH LINE. What’s the best dance to do on Thanksgiving? The turkey trot.

NEWS ITEMS. Call in your news and leave on voice mail at 234-3298 or e-mail to mholbert31@yahoo.com. The deadline is Sunday evening. Happy turkey day.
