June 27th

Jean Fee

Jean Ellen Fee, 61, of Center Point, died Saturday, June 18, 2011, at her home. Celebration of Jean’s life was held June 24 at Teahen Funeral Home, Cedar Rapids, by the Rev. Brenda S. Ehret of Unity Center, Cedar Rapids. Per Jean’s wishes her body was cremated.

Food For Thought

A few weeks ago, I received a phone call that proved to be another underhanded attempt to sell me something, even though I have long been on the Do Not Call List. I have written about this problem several times during the past few years, and about a month ago, the Savvy Senior column in this paper described some of the sly methods telephone marketers use to get our attention.

Walkin'

It’s summer time and the living is so easy that I’m tackling a job long neglected: cleaning the garage.
Actually the chore isn’t so much cleaning as it is sorting through and letting go of parts of my life long past and not to be relived. The softball equipment had to go, for example, as we are in our upper 50s and must come to grips that we’ll never play the sport again.

The fifth annual Liberty Centre Blues & BBQ festival that was cancelled May 29 due to heavy thunderstorms and damaging winds has been rescheduled for Saturday, July 23, from 12. to 10 p.m. at Liberty Centre in North Liberty.
