Writer recounts elk adventure
I had an experience on Monday evening that still makes me shudder. I was walking my dogs out on the back side of our property and looked up to see and hear a huge bull elk coming toward me on the roadway. The dogs had somehow spooked him and he turned to run the other way—toward me.

Rosburg mainstay will celebrate 80th birthday
Here’s hoping the weather man is right with his predictions for some warm and sunny weather this week. I see Nancy George is out rototilling her garden spot, so that’s a good sign. I’m hoping to get the lawn mowed, or I may need some goats to come and graze it for me.

Anniversary 75 coming soon
I’m finishing up this article as I sit in yet another hospital room with my husband. We ended up back in the emergency room on Saturday night and after many more tests, up and down blood pressure, and a few other issues, I think we are headed uphill once again. Hopefully he will be back home again in a day or two. Thanks everyone for your good thoughts, prayers, support and friendship. We will overcome.
