CHRISTINE’S CORNER by Christine Pace


This is Christine Pace reporting that the only thing I know happening around Linda Young’s house this week is what’s not happening: Her computer bit the dust. Tuesday evening, after we both attended the monthly auxiliary meeting at the Cedar Mountain Fire Department. She called me, late, and asked me to send in what I had sent her earlier, plus a note about the blood drive and the community center meeting. What I don’t have is news that was sent directly to Linda herself, or to the Cedar Mountain News email. I think Linda is burning her computer keys! If your news isn’t in this week’s column we apologize. Please re-send your news again to Linda for publication next week.

Thank you for reading the Cedar Mountain News and for your submissions. Enjoy our beautiful community!

Jean Dunlap has a birthday on the 9th, and Lauren Taylor Wilkie too on the 10th. Cooper Harris turns 8 on April 10th! Angie Skerrett Beeker gains a year on the 11th, and Cathy Greene does as well on the 13th.

Charlene’s mom Gail Smith grows another year older on April 19th. If you see Patty Stahl running hither & thither on the 21st stop her and say "Happy Birthday".

AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young

Last night my computer ceased to function just as I was finishing up the news at about 9 pm. Christine came to the rescue (I got her out of bed) and she sent the news in late Tuesday night. I was able to get the computer fixed by 7:30 am this morning, thanks to Joe at Computer Tech Squad, (he is an early riser), and decided to try to combine the two versions of the news. I apologize for any inconsistencies.

The computer malfunction was due to my sweet cat, Nozee, walking on the F keys when I wasn’t at the computer. I never touch them myself not knowing what they do. Nozee knows?

Thanks, Christine, for coming to bat at such a late hour.

Thank you for reading the Cedar Mountain News. Your contributions and comments are encouraged and welcome. We’d like to hear what’s going on if you would like to share. Photos are welcome as well. Please email news and photos to Linda at by Monday evening if possible.
