Flu season is here, and the biggest concern now is who might get it.

Dr. Melanie Miller, a pediatrician, said this week: "We have

education rather than treatment.


The past week has been a sad one for this community, for the Grim Reaper has visited us and taken a very heavy toll.

Last week we chronicled the death of Mrs. Margaret A. Cleveland, and in this issued is recorded the passing of Wendell P. Ripley, aged 21; Albert C. Lambert, 36; Gerald A. Pease, 34; Frank A. Howard, 35; the deaths of all resulting from fatal illnesses preceded by influenza.
