Weather Forecast


Wright-Cromwell News: Oct. 11 2017

It seems this year's fall leaves are mostly in the shades of yellow. I wonder if it's the amount of rain we have had that affect the colors of the leaves? I heard that hundreds of folks took a ride through Jay Cooke State Park this past week as the whole road was opened up after the devastating floods of 2012. There were over 80 washouts along that road and now they have all been repaired.

A very happy belated birthday to our own Helen Korpela as she turned 99 years old Oct. 8. What a lovely lady!
