Remember Paul Goodman, who worked with the Corry police department? He and his wife Debra now live in Colorado where he used to work with the sheriff's office, the Colorado attorney general and 29 years as a homicide investigator before he retired. He was a 1968 Corry High School grad and worked for Corry's police force from 1972-78. Deb's brother Dave Grinder went out for a visit last weekend and they kept him busy.

I've learned that walkers will be allowed at the high school starting Tuesday, Nov. 30, running weeknights from 6-8 p.m. You must enter near the nurse's office, door No. 29. You must sign in and wear a mask at all times. With no drinking fountains, there will be refillable water stations.

Jim Troyer was at the football banquet Wednesday and told me that it was 30 years ago that his team had its banquet in the cafeteria. His coaches were John Wilson, Joe Lukac, Bill Ross and Dan Clark. And Dan was there at the front table on Wednesday three decades later.

Got any extra winter coats? Tough times during the pandemic have caused a bigger concern, and Cambridge Corry is helping out. The senior care facility is seeking winter coats, hats, gloves mittens, scarfs and warm socks. They should be new or gently used and can be dropped off at a contact-less spot outside the building at 771 E. Columbus Ave. The drive runs through Dec. 1.

That was quite a story on Spartansburg's Bill Reese who died Oct. 27 at the age of 80. His son Marc Reese remembered some favorite phrases including "You should see what we saw." Kind-hearted Bill helped put Spartansburg on the statewide and national map.

Stephanie Lynn-Carson Chase is writing a book that takes place in Corry from the late 1970s to present day. She is in search for rights to publish and use a photo of the old Connie’s Supermarket. Contact if you can help. Oh, for those Connie's pastries when I lived on Spring Street.
