Dear Savvy Senior,
What's the best way to go about making a living will? I recently retired and would like to start getting my affairs in order, just in case.
People are talking. Talking to each other..in a relaxed setting. Stories about family members are shared, along with helpful hints about what's happening at home and how each one deals with unforeseen events.
No, it's not a family reunion. It's usually referred to as a support group, but don't let any preconceived ideas about what that might be or should be prevent you from reading on.
On Egg Day weekend there are usually a few class reunions and this year was no exception. The classes of 1960 - 1964 met together at the home of David Mickelsen in Toledo. This class had a lot of reminiscing to do since they are a close-knit group of friends and love to have fun!
The Winlock Miller Elementary School's second grade field trip "Day in the Park" is in its 4th or 5th year. Last year, before the field trip, I (Sgt. Randy Pennington) was at the school interacting with students and teacher, Ms. Linnie Farbo.
Winlock Egg Day started off with the Coronation of the Egg Day Queen Elora Smith on Friday night. Elora has the honor of representing Winlock in festivals throughout the year. Congratulations Elora!
Raymond Police received an anonymous tip on Tuesday, June 5 that led to the arrest of two juveniles in connection with the burglary at the Menlo store and attempted burglary at Riverdale Grocery.
According to Raymond Police Chief Chuck Spoor the department received an anonymous tip that led them to a residence where the two were staying. A joint-operation between Raymond PD and the Pacific County Sheriff's Office landed both suspects in custody. "Deputy Jesse Eastham set up surveillance of the home," Chief Spoor stated. "He was able to notice the stolen items through a window and immediately called for backup. While waiting for me to arrive one of the suspects came outside and he was able to arrest him."
The first of two June PUD Commissioners meetings kicked off without a hitch on June 5. PUD Manager Jason Dunsmoor addressed the commissioners with his monthly report. In attendance were Commissioners Dianna Thompson, Mike Swanson and Dick Anderson along with several PUD employees who regularly attended the meetings.
Dunsmoor informed the commissioners that PUD had completed its audit of the Bay Center Water System and found several discrepancies in the billing system. Several accounts were learned to have been being billed for the wrong hook up size for years.
During the May 30, 2018 South Bend City Council Meeting the council and those in attendance learned the city's budget is in the negative. The City of South Bend is now reportedly looking to raise the Utility Rate Excise Tax by 5% because the city is currently operating in the red and it's against the law to do so.
South Bend City Treasurer Dee Roberts informed the council and members of the audience that the best and only solution at the moment is to impose a Utility Rate Excise Tax to get the city out of the red. "What can I really say about it," Roberts told the Herald. "We have taken and taken from our reserves and nothing has been put back. At this moment this is the best option and quite honestly only option."
