Concord News

State Representative and Croydon resident Tom Howard expressed his relief that House Bill 224, which would require swimmers who go outside marked swim lines or more than 150 feet from shore to wear brightly colored caps, is off the consent calendar. He was also concerned over the House passing the gay marriage bill.

Howard went on to say he has no regret by voting for the $65,000.00 cut in the Croydon School Budget stating that each year the budget grows and that the $65,000.00 is a small amount of the total school budget. If corners were cut and spending watched he sees no reason for cutting programs.

Betty's Diary

Well now, I'll begin my real diary. New Year's Day and Paul beat me. He opened my door before day light, just as the clock was striking four and shouts Happy New Year and that woke Aunt Lucy and made her mad, but she got right up and made us get up too. She said it was wasting kerosene and she'd teach us to wake the whole family up at that time of day.

I wasn't to blame but she always punishes us both for what the other one does, but than two is company. So we had to go down in the cold and freeze while she built the fire. I had to work on my patchwork, how I hate it, and poor Paul had to split kindling out in the cold wood shed by lantern light. It seemed as if breakfast would never be ready cause we had to wait for the normal time.
