Having a

Senior

Moment

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

The director of an upcoming production

from the Evans Center’s

Showstoppers Acting Group is issuing a

disclaimer to the public regarding its content.

“What happens at this senior center is

not what happens at this senior center,”

said Tom Cash with a big laugh.

And yet, he assures those wishing for a

behind-the-scenes look at the happenings

at the E.L. Evans Center will find enough

familiarity at the fictional Young at

Heart Center.

“This is just a fun, light-hearted story

that I think everyone will be able to

relate to on some level,” Cash said.

The spring production, which is titled

“Senior Moments,” takes the audience

through a day-in-the-life at the popular

activities center for those aged 55 and

beyond. It takes us through a gossip-filled

card game, it introduces us to a silver-fox

who is always on the prowl, and it warns

us of the hazards of cafeteria food.

“When I tried to cut into a pork chop,”

laments one character, who likened the

meat to a wooden roof shingle, “I broke

the darn little plastic knife and fork.”

The production also tells us that it is

OK to laugh at the silly little things we

do, and forget to do.

“I’m lost in the curtain,” proclaims the

announcer (played by Jim Hamby), as he

battles the thick cloth before the introduction

of the opening scene at the Young

at Heart Center.

The production is another comedic

offering from the widely recognized

Showstoppers Acting Group but there is

something different about this one, said

Jean Dandrea.

“We always want to put on a good

show, but we really want to put on a good

show for “Senior Moments,” said the

actress who is playing a self-described

‘flirty old lady.’

The reasoning behind that extra

Cyndi Slussar, the activities leader at the E.L. Evans Senior Center, gamely fills in for

an absent member of the Showstoppers Acting Group with director Tom Cash during

a rehearsal of the upcoming comedy, “Senior Moments.” The original play, which was

written by Grove City resident John Schall, will be performed at the center on June 6

and 7.

‘oomph’ is because the play is an original

work and it was written by one of the center’s

members and one of their friends

“It makes it all the more special,” said

Dandrea.

The idea for “Senior Moments” took root

in the head of John Schall more than five

years ago when he started to experience

‘senior moments.’

“Lapses in memory, forgetting words,

things like that,” said the Grove City resident.

With his wife’s encouragement, he started

to put those experiences to paper but as

an exaggeration and with more characters.

He said he never once thought of making

his play a drama, or even a ‘dramedy.’

Signs of Suicide

By Dedra Cordle

Staff Writer

For years, June Brown stood on one side

of an imaginary doorway, unaware of the

signs of depression and suicide that can

exist in the young mind. Then one day, she

was hurtled through the opening when her

then 10-year-old son tried to take his life.

She likened the aftermath of being in a

vortex filled with anger, grief, disbelief and

immense guilt.

“How could I not know he was going

through this?” said Brown, a Grove City

resident whose name was been changed to

protect the identity of her child.

She began to think back to moments of

their daily lives for clues. Did he say anything

was wrong? Did he lose interest in

his activities? Was he being bullied? Did I

not pay enough attention? Are there signs

I missed?

She went to his school and requested to

speak with his teachers. She asked if he

gave any indication that he was struggling

in the classroom.

“They told me he gave them no indication

that he was struggling,” said Brown.

“He maintained his ‘A’ and ‘B’ grades

throughout; a near model student.”

She asked the clinical professionals at

Nationwide Children’s Hospital where her

son was being treated for advice. Upon

their recommendations, she started learning

anything and everything about the

signs of suicide. She began to share her

knowledge with friends who also have children.

“It is so vitally important that every parent

know what changes to look out for,” she

said.

Brown said it was equally important to

talk to them about it, even at a very young

age.

and alcohol and sex, but rarely do we talk

to them about anxiety, depression and suicide.”

As a part of her continuing mission to

not only learn more about the topic, but to

give support to parents going through the

same situation, she attended a Signs of

Suicide Forum on May 16 at Grove City

High School. There, Brown was one of

approximately 40 adults in attendance to

hear from a representative with

Nationwide Children’s Hospital offering

advice and tips about behavioral changes

in their children.

Melanie Fluellen, a clinical counselor

who works at the Center for Suicide

Prevention and Research, said one thing to

know about depression and suicide in children

is that it can manifest itself differently

in each child.

“There are typical signs of depression

and suicide but what one warning sign

might be in one child could be different

from another,” she explained.

She said that is why it is so important

that parents take note of their children,

their activities and their behaviors and

compare changes they have noticed

throughout the days, weeks, months and

years.

“You know your child better than anyone

else,” she said. “If something seems different

to you about them, then it probably

is different.”

She said she often hears from parents

who ask about the moodiness of pre-teens

and teens.

“They ask, ‘Well, isn’t that just them

being teenagers?’” she said. “Well, some of

it is, but is it a change from their typical

behavior?”

She recommended that parents communicate

with their children, ask questions

and share aspects of their lives with their

children as well.

“Be open with them,” said Fluellen.

As for common signs of depression,

Fluellen said they are feeling sad or irritable

more often than not; sleeping or eating

less than usual; lack of interest in things

that once brought pleasure; withdrawing

from others; participating in reckless

behavior; engaging in self-injurious behavior;

performing poorly in school; physical

symptoms such as headaches or stomachaches;

and increasing use of alcohol or

drugs.

“I don’t like writing dramas, only comedies,”

Schall said. “People need to laugh.”

He said he did not write the play, which

has recently been published, specifically

for the Showstoppers to perform, but was

happy when he learned that Cash selected

it to be their first production of the year.

“It meant a lot to me.”

Schall said he hopes that the public will

be able to come out, enjoy the play, relate

to the dialogue, and laugh, and laugh, and

laugh.

“I’m excited for them to see it,” he said.

www.columbusmessenger.com

As for some warning signs of suicide,

Fluellen said they are talking to others or

posting on social media about wanting to

die or feeling like a burden; gathering medication,

sharp objects or firearms; expressing

unbearable emotional pain; giving

away prized possessions; suddenly becoming

calm or cheerful after a long period of

depression.

Fluellen said if any child presents these

behaviors, it is time to seek medical help.

“Suicide is preventable,” she said.

“Intervention is the key.”

The Signs of Suicide Forum for parents

was presented through a collaborative program

from Nationwide Children’s Hospital

and the South-Western City Schools

District.

Earlier this year, a pilot program was

initiated at four schools in the district —

Norton and Jackson Middle Schools and

Central Crossing and Franklin Heights

High Schools — where professionals at

Nationwide Children’s provide instruction

to staff and students so they are capable of

recognizing the signs of suicide and depression

in themselves and others. They do this

by teaching the ACT message where they

acknowledge there is a serious concern,

show the person they care and tell a trusted

adult.

April Weese, one of the district’s curriculum

coordinators, said during the forum

that they plan to have the Signs of Suicide

program at two additional schools next

year and possibly more throughout the

upcoming years.

As for Brown, she said that she feels

that this program is and will be instrumental

but knows that there are “a ways to go”

with educating staff, students and parents

about depression and suicide.

“It’s a start, but we cannot move quickly

enough.”

High-flying air show needed in central Ohio

I’ve now spent over 40 years of my adult

life living in central Ohio, most of it right

here in Grove City. My list of memories has

grown each year. The bad ones have been

rare and remain far outweighed by the

good ones. I recently recalled one of my better

ones while outside and observing a big

FedEx cargo jet slowly making its

approaching descent to the runway at

Rickenbacker.

The memory was from 2007. The event

was an airshow held at Rickenbacker,

September 27-30. It was billed as, ‘The

Gathering of Mustangs & Legends.’ The

show’s organizer was a P-51 Mustang flight

group known as Stallion 51, located in

Kissimmee, Fla, near Orlando. With time

marching on, they felt it was an ebbing

chance to gather a significant dwindling

part of WWII history together again.

Nearly 80 Mustangs made their way across

the skies to Rickenbacker, along with many

of the remaining pilots, crew, designers,

and builders. I read where this was probably

half of the Mustangs remaining in the

world.

The Air Force saw the significance of the

event and designated it an official 60th

anniversary event. That opened the door

for a full-fledged airshow that turned out to

arguably be one of the most significant aviation

events in the US in 2007. The result

was a magnificent airshow, put together in

chronological order, displaying our early

aviation days to our present air superiority

days. It was to be a full day of entertainment

I’d never forget. The only regret I had

was my father wasn’t here to enjoy it with

me.

My anticipation for the show increased

during the week leading up to it. I’d be out

walking my four-legged best friend and

hear noises in the sky. It didn’t take much

effort for my eyes to zero in on P-51

Mustangs, with their distinct noisy sounding

Rolls-Royce Merlin engines, circling the

skies above the Grove City area and heading

toward Rickenbacker, undoubtedly

practicing for the upcoming event. It made

me think what it must have sounded like in

WWII when waves of them left England on

runs and filled the skies over France and

Germany. More unusual air noises were

noted as the weekend closed in. The Air

Force contingent of jets, bombers and cargo

planes were arriving.

The weather is always a concern for airshows.

Thursday got off to a rocky start

with rain and that curtailed some of the

flight activities and attendance. But the

disturbance moved out for the next three

days and great weather followed. With

clear skies and afternoon temperatures in

the mid-70s, I read the show finished on

Sunday with more than 150,000 spectators.

I arrived as the gates opened with a

crowd already forming. I made my way up

to the flight line where numerous jets,

bombers, cargo planes, helicopters, past

and present, were staged and available for

close viewing, many for inside touring. I

spent quite some time at the huge B-52 on

display, talking with a crew member and

reminiscing about my old days at Grand

Forks AFB, at that time a SAC (Strategic

Air Command) base with a large contingent

of B-52 bombers and KC135 tankers. I

told him how I still remember how the base

shook in the middle of the night every time

they scrambled for training drills.

After casually walking by the many displays

of vendor souvenirs, flight related

organizations and clubs set up along the

flight line, I moved into a big field, unfolded

my lawn chair, sat down, and readied

myself for the big show. The field had a

perfect view of the runway. Before long, the

skies were filled with one display after

another.

It was a day of air history on display, the

evolution of our air supremacy right before

our eyes. The show first saw the older

planes take to the skies. By afternoon, the

skies were filled with the modern-day F-15,

F-16, and the incredible F-22 Raptor.

Watching the F-22 streak toward us barely

above the runway then abruptly climb

straight up, up, and up tested my neck

muscles. My ears throbbed in unison most

of the afternoon.

Then the Air Force Thunderbirds put on

their renowned demonstration. The field

provided a perfect view of their guarded F-

16 jets sitting on the tarmac awaiting the

crew arrival. It was intriguing to view all

the pomp and circumstance as military

vehicles brought them to their planes. They

got out and smartly marched about, checking

each plane out. Finally, they were positioned

in the cockpit of their respective

plane and they all began to taxi for takeoff.

They’d streak by, then disappear and

leave us searching the skies for them.

Suddenly they’d appear out of nowhere. I

almost tipped over in my chair and spilled

my drink as they came out of nowhere and

went right over us. All the fans were laughing

and in awe of the surprise.

The real highlight for me was the day

after the show. I was doing my dog walking

deal, heading down the road. I heard a

noise and looked directly up. There was the

B-2 bomber flying at very low altitude

heading west, presumably just left

Rickenbacker and heading home to

Whiteman AFB in Missouri. What a sight

that bomber was, and I got a once in a lifetime

perfect view of it.

So here we are, years later. We haven’t

Possible trouble for chocolate lovers

If you love chocolate as much as I do, we

may be in trouble.

I read a report that scientists at the

National Oceanic and Atmospheric

Administration have predicted that cacao

plants may go extinct as early as 2050.

Cacao plants thrive in West Africa’s

rainforests, which is why most of the

world’s chocolate comes from that region.

However, scientists predict that fungi,

viruses and rising temperatures will push

cacao farms further into the mountains,

and much of that land they say is unsuitable

for cultivation.

I take global warming and sustainability

issues as our world population continues

to grow seriously, but for one minute, I’m

going to take the issue of losing chocolate

Life Moments - By Christine Bryant

probably a little more extreme than I

should.

Can you imagine a world without chocolate?

No oversized hearts filled with an

assortment of chocolates on Valentine’s

Day. No gooey goodness oozing from

Easter’s Cadbury eggs. No chocolate-covered

anything that makes whatever inside

taste exponentially better.

There is some good news, however, in

this dire prediction. Mars, the company

that makes my favorite candy bar, Twix, is

partnering with the University of

California to develop a gene-editing tool

that would help prevent tree farms from

being wiped out. The cacao seeds, as one

example, would be more resistant to

drought.

That’s good, considering the NOAA has

warned that nearly 90 percent of land

being used for cacao won’t be suitable by

the middle of this century. Even better,

this project could help other crops suffering

from bacteria or infections, like rice and

wheat, according to one of the study’s scientists.

There’s always the hope that we never

will have to worry about this possibility,

along with the much more serious implications

that come along with the way our

world is changing. In the meantime, the

next time I take a bite of chocolate, I’ll be

sure to savor every last ounce of it.

had an airshow here

since that huge 2007

show. Dayton has an

annual show in

June, Cleveland one

in September. This

year they both have

the Navy’s Blue

Angels scheduled.

Some neighboring states also have annual

airshows. I’m asking myself why central

Ohio can’t at least support an annual airshow

in reduced scope akin to those other

shows? It would seem like we have the perfect

setup - the extensive ex-AFB

Rickenbacker facility, road accesses, population,

motels, potential local sponsors, etc.

I wrote to the organizers of the last show

and asked if they might consider another

show. The response I received indicated

they were really pleased and proud with

the results of the 2007 show and would love

to put on a similar future event. It was only

the monetary funding aspects holding

them back. It takes a large initial investment

to get things rolling.

I find it perplexing. The first show was a

resounding success. You have a group

that’s willing to take on the responsibility

and efforts of organizing and running a

similar event. We have the local interest

and perfect setup to host and support the

event. The other major missing piece is

some financial constraints. Surely there

were key financial learnings from the first

show that can help realize better cost efficiencies

in a new show. It’s hard to believe

there’s not enough vision within the leaders

of our local communities and businesses

to not see the many far-ranging direct

and indirect benefits this type of event

could bring to central Ohio.

The City Beat

Council adopts new rules for more transparency

By Andrea Cordle

Southwest Editor

New rules of council will make public

participation a bit easier.

The council rules were amended and

adopted at the May 21 Grove City Council

meeting.

“We are trying to improve transparency

and add structure,” said councilman Jeff

Davis.

Residents who attend council meetings

will notice the changes.

According to Davis, the order of business

has been changed to accommodate speakers

and guests. Up to this point, council has

organized the agenda to cover finance

items first, then safety, followed by service

and lands. Davis said the majority of

speakers sign up to address land usage, so

that subject will now be first in order.

Wine and Arts Festival

Grove City Town Center Inc. will host

its annual Wine and Arts Festival from 5 to

10 p.m. June 15 and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

June 16 in the Grove City Town Center.

More than 20 wineries will be present.

Admission is free, but those interested

The new council rules also eliminates

the rule that says three opponents and

three proponents are permitted to speak on

each item.

“We want to be as courteous as we can

be and make sure everyone feels welcome,”

said Davis.

Typically, if there is an issue that draws

debate among residents, council would

waive the rules to allow more than three

speakers for each side. The new rules

would save time because council would no

longer have to vote on waiving the rules.

The time allotment to address council on

an issue remains at three minutes per

speaker.

The city has made other efforts to make

government access easier to residents.

Residents can watch the local council meetings

and special meetings live on the city’s

website. Residents may also watch the

must purchase tickets to sample the wine.

For more information, visit www.grovecitytowncenter.org.

Call for artists

The Grove City Chamber of Commerce

will host the 39th annual Arts in the Alley

around the southwest

taped council meetings on the website.

Davis also mentioned the city’s new

open checkbook that is also on the city’s

website and allows residents to see exactly

how the city is spending funds.

Council did have some discussion about

whether to vote on the changes at the meeting

or postpone the vote until all the council

members were present. Councilman

Roby Schottke was absent at the meeting.

However, the majority of the remaining

council members decided to move forward

with the vote.

“We have been talking about this for

months,” said Davis. “Let’s get this done

and move forward with its implementation.”

In other news, council voted to waive the

city’s no alcohol on public streets policy for

the annual Homecoming Celebration,

which will be held on July 27 in the Town

Center.

The Grove City Kids Association has

asked council to waive the rules so the

organization can sell beer at the event

between 6 and 11:30 p.m.

Grove City Mayor Richard “Ike” Stage

said he has never been in favor of public

consumption of alcohol and the first few

years or the Homecoming event, the city

did not allow alcohol. However, Stage said

many people brought their own alcoholic

beverages to the festivities.

“It was a big problem,” said Stage.

The mayor said now the city allows it so

it can be controlled and sold safely.

Council also waived the provision for the

annual Alumni Softball Tournament,

which will be held July 29-30 at Fryer

Park.

At this event, the Grove City Rotary

Club will sell beer.

Festival Sept. 15-16. The Fine Arts

Competition will once again be held in City

Hall, 4035 Broadway. Artists who wish to

enter are encouraged to save the date.

Applicants may enter in either the professional

or amateur division. Cash awards in

each division are given for painting, drawing,

mixed media and three-dimensional

Making a splash

Messenger photos by Dedra Cordle

Though dark skies cast a shadow, not even the threat of rain and thunderstorms

could alter the charge of excitement in the air as families in the Grove City area

came out to Fryer Park on May 19 to experience the grand opening of the muchanticipated

Splash Pad. Through a collaborative effort with the city’s parks and

recreation department and the Grove City YMCA, the Splash Pad offers a water

park experience with slides, spray shooters and surprise spouts for all to enjoy

during the summer season. While admission is free, the Splash Pad is open for the

public to use from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. through Labor Day on school days not in session.

Here, Representatives with the city of Grove City, the Splash Pad committee

‘Solo’ undeserving of solo film

June 3, 2018 -SOUTHWEST MESSENGER - PAGE 9

The Reel Deal

Dedra Cordle

The behind-thescenes

production of

“Solo: A Star Wars

Story” was troubled,

to say the least.

When filming began

early last year, Phil

Lord

and

Christopher Miller were at the helm but

they were abruptly fired several months

later due to ‘creative differences.’ In

Hollywood speak, that means the studios

were unhappy with what they had seen on

the dailies, started to panic, and then let go

of the people they felt were ultimately

responsible. This action sparked a frantic

search for an experienced director capable

of righting a sinking ship. They found one

in Ron Howard.

Shortly after Howard was hired, the

production began extensive reshoots and,

all told, the studio spent upwards of $300

million to bring a stand-alone film that

there was little demand for to life.

Typically, it does not bode well for

movies when the behind-the-scenes production

are immensely troubled, as this

one was: There is always this monster in

Frankenstein effect where you can tell

where the pieces were shoddily parsed

together. Remarkably, “Solo: A Star Wars

Story” does not come across as a monster

mish-mash movie but it’s not great either.

At least it’s cohesive from beginning to end,

and that is a true credit to its director.

Now that those kudos are out of the

way, it’s time to talk about some of the lingering

issues with Solo. This film, for all of

Writing

recognition

Local author Susan Kay

Box Brunner displays her

awards at the Janis

Martin Center from three

of her books. Brunner

received Best In Show for

her book “My Thoughts

On The Lord’s Prayer,”

Outstanding award for

“Her Kind Of

Businessman,” and an

honorable mention award

for her book, “Diary of

Disbelief.” For more information

its good intentions, was not a necessary one

and it never sheds that stench of being a

blatant cash grab by Lucasfilm. To put it

simply, Han Solo did not require an origin

story — some characters are best left with a

little mystery — and it was set up for failure

from the start when the studios thought

any young actor today could be as magnetic

of a presence as Harrison Ford. While

Alden Ehrenreich tries his best, his portrayal

still falls short of being truly good,

just like the rest of the movie.

In Solo, it recounts the early life of the

loveable scoundrel with Han (Ehrenreich)

liberating a vial of hyperfuel from a group

of criminals. The intention is to use that

precious resource to buy his and childhood

sweetheart Qi’ra’s (Emilia Clarke) freedom

so they can purchase a ship and travel

across the galaxy.

As Han’s plans are apt to do, they go a

bit not as planned and he is separated from

Qi’ra. He vows to do whatever it takes to

come back for her.

Years later, Han is kicked out of the

Imperial Navy and demoted to an infantryman.

While fighting for the Empire, he

comes across a group of thieves led by

Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson) and

makes his pitch. Naturally, Beckett hates

him on sight and orders that he be killed

for desertion. While in the fighting pits, he

meets a Wookie named Chewbacca (Joonas

Suotamo) and his most lasting friendship is

formed.

Had the movie just been about their

adventures, perhaps it would be a better,

more engaging movie; After all, Han and

Chewie together is the best. But it instead

shifts to this band of thieves and their mission

to steal a shipment of coaxium for a

major crime syndicate. It does, however,

end with the fabled Kessel Run.

As an origin story, Solo does not truly

work because, as stated before, it’s not a

necessary one. As a heist film, however, it

does work and the action that takes place

during the coaxium grab on the planet

Kessel is some of the best action sequences

in the Star Wars cinematic universe. It’s

humorous, tightly shot and lots of fun to

watch. Unfortunately, those descriptors

cannot be said for the entirety of Solo. It

starts slow, chugs along and then finally

picks up steam near the end when you’re

less invested, and I never thought I could

say that about a film starring the character

of Han Solo. Grade: C

Project inspired by late township trustee

By Sandi Latimer

Staff Writer

Pleasant Township now has a fire pit

where American flags can properly be disposed

of, thanks to the efforts of a 14-yearold

Boy Scout working toward the Eagle

Scout level.

About 100 people braved the 90-degree

plus heat Memorial Day to see the work

Gunnar Schmidt of Troop 412 performed

at Oak Grove Cemetery over the past eight

months.

The project began when trustees, who

had seen a fire ring at another cemetery,

thought it would be nice to have one in

Pleasant Township. Word got around and

an announcement was made at a meeting

of Troop 412.

“I decided that’s what I wanted for my

Eagle Scout project,” Gunnar said.

He was also remembering the nearly

daily chats he’d had with his family’s longtime

friend and neighbor Keith Goldhardt,

a former Pleasant Township trustee.

“Keith is the one who told him he could

be an Eagle Scout,” said Gunnar’s mother

Jane.

“We just hung out,” Gunnar said of his

nearly daily visits with the former trustee.

When Goldhardt died in September

2010 at the age of 63, he was buried in Oak

Grove Cemetery.

“The project came together with the

help of family, friends, scouts and the constant

encouragement from the Pleasant

Township trustees,” Gunnar wrote in a

flyer handed out at the ceremony.

Not only did he do the research of how

to design and build the fire pit and an

adjoining base for a flag pole, but he did

the building and was responsible for the

raising of funds.

“I appreciate and thank everyone for all

your support throughout this project, he

wrote.

Trustee Ed Sheets, speaking for the

trustees, also thanked the sponsors, and

praised Gunnar for his hard work and all

the labor and planning that went into the

project.

“He has done an excellent job and we

wish him good luck in the future,” Sheets

A moving memorial

Messenger file photo by Pat Donahue

Flags of Honor will once again pay tribute to the fallen

in Grove City. This year’s event will take place

June 15-17 with more than 400 full-sized American

flags in the grassy area located on the southeast corner

of Park Street and Arbutus Avenue. This moving

display, a labor of love organized by the parents of a

fallen marine, honors soldiers from Ohio who gave

their lives for our country around the world, including

over 200 in the last decade. Volunteers are needed

to assist with flag installation Friday morning and

removal Sunday afternoon. For more information,

call 614-277-3060 or visit the www.grovecityohio.gov.

Gunnar Schmidt and his parents Jane and Mark, retire the first flag in the fire ring that

he designed and built at Oak Grove Cemetery. He had built the disposal pit and base

for the flagpole as his Eagle Scout project. It was dedicated Memorial Day in memory

of Schmidt’s friend and neighbor the late Keith Goldhardt, a former Pleasant Township

trustee who he said played a big part in his life.

said.

Bob Schmitz of the Veterans of Foreign

Wars Post 3441 called Memorial Day a

time for remembrance and that this work

was also a time for remembrance. A 21-gun

salute and Taps played by West Jefferson

trumpeters Calista Wallace and Madalyn

Charles preceded the flag retirement ceremony.

After the raising of the American

flag and the Oak Grove Cemetery flag,

Gunnar invited the audience to join the

scouts in burning the worn, torn and faded

flags that had been donated.

Inside the square fire ring was what

looked like the lid and rack from a square

barbecue grill. On top of the rack were

easy-starting fire logs. Scouts then built

the base for a small bonfire.

As the fire blazed orange flames,

Gunnar and his parents, Jane and Mark,

walked to the pit, unfolded an old flag and

carefully dropped it, blue star-studded

field last, into the pit. Scouts stood at the

edge of the pit at attention doing the scout

salute. When the flag was fully consumed

by the flames, a scout proclaimed “Flag

burned” and the scouts dropped their

arms.

Gunnar performed similar tasks with

other members of his family and with

Goldhardt’s widow Patty.

Township residents had donated their

old flags for the initial burning to the township

fire department. Chief Brian Taylor

says the department will continue to collect

flags. Burning is the proper way to dispose

of a worn, torn, tattered or faded

American flag.

The National Trade Association

we belong to has

purchased the following

classifieds. Determining

the value of their service

or product is advised by

this publication. In order

to avoid misunderstandings,

some advertisers do

not offer “employment”

but rather supply the

readers with manuals, directories

designed to help

their clients establish mail

order selling and other

businesses at home. Under

NO circumstance

should you send any

money in advance or give

the client your checking,

ads that claim to guarantee

loans regardless of

credit and note that if a

credit repair company

does business only over

the phone it’s illegal to request

any money before

delivering its service. All
