Corry’s Liam Cragg

The secret is out. CAHS senior Liam Cragg tells me the decision wasn’t easy, but he’ll attend Edinboro University to be on the track and field team. “Walker Gray is now a thrower there,” he said of his former football and track teammate. “My uncle (Mike Cragg) told me I still have an invitation to play football at Hobart.” That’s where his brother, Matt, goes to school.

Milton Dahl, longtime custodian at Concord School, turned 91 years young on Thursday. Happy birthday from Carl Dahl.

Rachel Tasker, who worked here at The Journal as an intern last summer, has started a new internship with Rossbacher Insurance. J.T. and Brad better be on their toes. 

There’s a new event at the Corry Public Library. Marcia Stiller tells me its called Coloring Therapy.

“Drop in for some adult coloring therapy,” she says. “Coloring sheets and colored pencils are provided.” It’s today from 10 a.m. to noon.

Jack Cummings is a year older tomorrow. Celebrating on Monday are Tom Hansen, Nick Krasa and Greg Robinson. Kristin Ross will be out partying on Tuesday for her birthday.

Deutsch will outline the regiment’s harrowing story, from Antietam to Fredericksburg and beyond. Registration is required by noon Tuesday. Seating is limited. Contact the Hi-Ed at 664-9405. 

Will it snow this weekend?

Sympathy to the family and friends of Elaine LeSuer who passed at age 90. Her husband, Carl, is 92. She was “Uncle Buck’s” mother-in-law.

Kudos to the Corry trap team after a big turn out for Thursday’s taco bar. Several folks there found out that Patty Foreman is now running the kitchen at the VFW. They are trying lunches again on Wednesdays and Fridays.

There’s a “ladies day out” Sunday at Cobblestone Inn from 1-5 p.m. with many vendors.

Finally, do you think Donald Trump will release his tax returns? Don’t bet any money on it.
