I would like to send a big apology for the mistake I made in last week’s column. I really apologize to Harriette Hudson for this, as I am truly sorry. I mentioned a farewell to her and I made a big mistake on the name. It is Gloria Ventour that is mentioning leaving in the near future, so I truly apologize. It is NOT Harriette, and she will continue doing and running her business as usual. Sorry Harriette.

Sympathy goes out to Ray and Rene Blackmore on the loss of his mother (Marian Myrtle Blackmore), who passed away peacefully on April 10, at the age of 75. Our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families at this time.
Are we ever going to get spring? This week and weekend have been chilly, windy and miserable, so hopefully Old Man Winter will give up soon and just go away for a long time, instead of this undetermined weather pattern we have been having lately. We can always keep our fingers crossed. Have a great week everyone.
