​​This is a photo of Kerry Kennedy's calling, in the location of loggerhead sea turtle tracks, a few weeks ago. Turned out to be Nest #5 with 133 eggs which will hatch in a couple of weeks. We now have 27 nests with teams still riding a Gator each dawn to, hopefully, locate more.

Tuesday June 2nd 1959 (56 years ago) you graduated from Harbor Creek High School! Things sure have change since then..My neighbor's daughter will be graduating next week and today is her last day at school. But she has been celebrating all last week. Class skip day, ( What, is a legal day off?), well, Irene Edwards would not think so, but off to Darien Lake in NY, two days later Cedar Point in OH. Then the Cleveland Zoo, Prom at the Avalon Hotel. (Penn State gym not good enough anymore), history class trip to DC. Commencement will be held at the Warner Theater..( school gym not big enough). Not only all of that, the school bus picks her up every day at her front door. None of that walking up to East Lake Road in the winter to catch the school bus! All in all this young lady is a very lucky young lady.. Adopted when she was 18 months from China..and number two in her class! How much better can it get?! Enjoy your day and try to love one another as our time on this planet is getting shorter and shorter everyday!​

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​DH 8/14/17 We are sorry to report sad news ……Charles L. Nier, Jr. has passed away Friday, August 4, 2017. Here is his obituary:

Charles L. Nier, Jr.

​​​​​​​​​​​​Diane 1/18/17  I would like too share some information about Karen Seelar Wein.  She has moved from Erie to a assisted living felicity in Pittsburgh Pa. Her dementia continues to progress and she is losing her cognitive skills. But her daughter tells me she is very happy.


​​​​​​Bonita Graham Howey has passed.

​                             Obituary for Bonita​


6/24 SH  Our Angel Sidney needs our prayers again. She is getting a stent due to blockage in her liver. While they are doing that they will biopsy her liver. The first stent lasted 8 years, let's pray this stent lasts as long. This is not an easy procedure and can be dangerous. Please send prayers for Sidney. Gwen and Rich Woznicki's granddaughter. Contact them, I know they would love hearing from you.


​​​​​​​​7/1 More sad news, Ronnie Shepard has passed away on May 15, 2016. He passed two weeks after being diagnosed with cancer.


6/20 SH Please pray for Bonita Graham Howey. She has been diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer. She went to doctor at Duke U. She will be having surgery Tuesday on one of the two areas of brain cancers. After surgery she will be starting chemo. This is not the only place she has the cancer. Her son Wayne, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren from Philadelphia are with her this week. Please pray for Bonita, her family and the doctors treating her.

6/20 SH Prayers for Bev Williams Lupo. She has two more rounds of chemo treatment for her cancer.

6/20  SH Please drop in to see Robert Hines who is under the weather. She's no longer driving and no longer emailing. We believe she had a stroke.

6/14 SH  Jim Campbell  Memorial weekend  ended up in hospital and had to have open heart surgery - double bypass. He is now recovering at home, with nurse visits and therapy. He says he has great nursing care....his wife Gloria has been a nurse for over 40 years !

 6/3 SH   Do you remember Sidney, "our little angel"? She is in need of our prayers again. A while back she had a blood clot in her liver and the doctors were unable to dissolve it. So now her body is rejecting her liver (that lasted 9 years!!) and they are going to biopsy it. Sidney may be in need of another transplant.

6/3  SH Rich Woznickis had a heart attack and went into the hospital for two stents he's fine and home.   So we need to send some prayers to Gwen and Rich Woznicki.

6/3 SH Lucille Pierce Rovnak has a broken leg and is in rehab. So send Lucille some prayers
