The warmer temperatures this week prove there is light at the end of the tunnel. I never thought of 33 degrees feeling good, but after 6 degrees in the mornings, I could really tell a difference. But on a positive note, I just heard on the news that the ticks shouldn’t be as bad this year. We shall see.

The Westfield Ruritan Club will sponsor a Cash Bingo and Benefit for Kathy Jo Monday, on Saturday, January 13, at the Westfield Community Building.
