Over the Backyard Fence in Sherman 07/26/12

Hi folks, I think probably most of you get tired of hearing all the bad news that is found on television and in newspapers just as I do.

It seems there are always crime stories, etc., and few good things and good deeds published daily. Recently Ina Griswald told me she got a phone call from John Hamilton saying he had found her son Jay's wallet in the middle of the Bailey Hill Road. Jay had not even realized he had lost it. Apparently it happened when he was taking a load of manure to the field. Isn't it great to hear there are still honest people in today's world?

It would be nice if less bad stuff would be published. Of course there is a lot of bad and sad things taking place now days, but it seems those things are usually described in detail while the good things are often only briefly mentioned. I think perhaps many people just neglect letting newspapers know about good experiences which have taken place in their life or someone else's. It's time people should send more good stories for publication.

I again remind you that Sherman Day is near. It takes place Wednesday, Aug. 4. Also if former Sherman Central School graduates have not reserved a reservation for the school Alumni banquet to be held starting with the meeting at and the banquet at, send it now to Becky VanValkenburg, 123 Kendrick St., Sherman, N.Y. 14781.

The Sherman Town Board meets tonight at 7:30 p.m., in the town office on Mill Street.
