     Hello, Stephensburg hope everyone is doing well. Once again I would love to thank everyone for the phone calls and Facebook feedback I have got. Early in the week, I spoke with Helen Love and she was just so excited Stephensburg has a column. Helen as always was very kind and I enjoyed talking with her. My sisters and I always talked with her when she worked outside the home, Helen told me now she can keep with us (my sisters and I), now that we have this column.

    I am still waiting for those cooler temperatures to get here and stay. I have missed my boots and sweaters.
       I have noticed all the ghosts and goblins in many yards around the county. Halloween is a little more than two weeks away. This will be the first year that I do not have any kids to take trick or treating. Although I am a bit sad about it, I am looking forward to seeing the costumes that the neighborhood kids will wear.
