The cleanup after the storm “Irene” is still in effect and will be for several days ahead, the ones that had flooding are going to take a lot of work to get back to a more normal way of life. Well I have now experienced another first in my life; on Wed. of this past week, Dr. Volk replaced my old knee with a new artificial knee joint. Things are going quite well and I have been able to return home the following Saturday to do rehab at home. Wonders never cease in what they can now do in medicine and I am most grateful.
It has been hard to believe that it was ten years ago that the United States was attacked on Sept. 11, much has changed in our country as a result and we now have to learn to live with these changes. The celebration to honor this anniversary in New York City was very impressive; thanks to television the whole country could attend the event. We had a big celebration here in Willsboro on the first day of the school opening. A Reprehensive from the Education Dept. in Washington, John White came to hold a roundtable discussion with the local school staff and some community members on the needs of rural schools. He complemented the staff and students on receiving the CFES (College For Every Student) awarded to Willsboro School for the past academic year by Rick Dalton. As a community we have much to be proud of in our school system.
