As a thank you to all who have served our country, the Corry VFW is offering to any and all veterans a free dinner on Saturday from 4-7 p.m. You must sign up for this event at the VFW or by calling 664-7150. The cut off to sign up is on Thursday.
Belated weekend birthday wishes to Sara Sample, Jim Van Cise, Joyce Cirigliano, Josh Schrecengost, Mike Maedje, Robin Kerr and Diane Andriacchi. And to Lynda Williams, Sue Goss and Bill Zimmer.
Sorry to learn of the passing of Robert Duane Migliaccio, 76, in Sumter, S.C. He and his wife Kathie provided homes to so many young people. I recall getting our first dog, chocolate poodle Samantha, from one of the children.  
Also, sympathy to the family and friends of Harold Curtis.
It took Richard Skalos 37 days covering over 6,100 miles and 17 states from Corry to North Texas. He got stranded in Cheyenne in a snow storm on the way to Texas. “When I entered my house, my dog bit me,” he said. “Guess I deserve that for leaving him with strangers since April.”
Bill Beggs and the Bugle Boy Swing Band will perform at the Corry Senior Center on Friday from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m., honoring veterans with their music. It will be a mix of patriotic and the World War II big band era music.
It was a great turnout for the Deb Gates fundraiser Sunday at the VFW.
When Oil City plays Hollidaysburg in the PIAA football playoffs, the Golden Tigers will be coached by former Corry coach Homer DeLattre.
Get-well wishes to Chris Rhodes.
Happy birthday to CAHS assistant volleyball coach Mark Brenner and to Brenda Obert, wife of longtime Union City AD Darrell Obert. Today is Jackie VanCise’s special day.
Should the NFL be concerned about copy cats?
Kudos to all those workers who helped out at the Corry Kids Wrestling Raffle on Saturday night at St. Thomas.
As the Browns get ready to host the Bills, did you notice that Buffalo is only a game behind New England? The Browns starting tight end last Sunday was Stephen Carlson, a graduate of Jamestown (N.Y.) High School and Princeton University.
Thanks to Jacob (not sure of his last name) for cleaning the leaves out of our gutters. Hope he enjoyed the cookies.
Finally, nice to see that Judge Gregory Hammond has been retained another term in Warren County 2,474-299.
