Twenty years ago this week: It was reported that Curtis Schleappi celebrated his first birthday with a party at Foxboro Skating Rink which was attended by all his cousins, along with his sister, Shawnee, and brother, Josh. They all enjoyed skating, eating pizza and cake. This year, he celebrated his 21st birthday in Columbus with his brother, Josh, which would have been even better had Ohio State won their football game.
Continuation of the Move Over Law: "How serious is the problem?" Across the nation, hundreds of people are killed or injured every year when they're struck by a vehicle after pulling over to the side of the road or highway. On average, these "struck-by" crashes kill one tow-truck driver every six days; 23 highway workers and one law-enforcement officer every month; and five firefighters every year. Tragically, stranded motorists are also struck and killed.
Thought for the week: "Some people don't hesitate to speak their mind because they have nothing to lose."

Hello Readers: Changes are made constantly in this world. If that didn't happen we would still be watching black and white television, cranking our cars to start or climbing steps instead of riding in an elevator. Well, you get the idea. Changes make the world go around. For years the residents have enjoyed reading the Foltz Community Center's newsletter. No, no, it is still here, but it has received beautiful make-over. Thank you Megan.
