Muriel Loder, a long time resident of Reber and well known in Elizabethtown and Essex will be remembered in a memorial service at St. Johns Episcopal Church in Essex on January 27 at 3.00PM. A grand lady who will be missed. She was 93 in age, but 25 in spirit. Good by Muriel and be blest. Look for Wes Vanderhorsts latest operation on American Idol next week or maybe local cable or on his VCR. If you like adventure, drama, and suspense, then thats the show for you. If you cant get to it, the VNews might publish a cut by cut description. The two ardent Democrats in Essex are surprised at the primary results in Iowa. Of course they dont understand that in Iowa, the citizens there vote for the last voice heard. Too bad Mitt didnt know this before he spent bazillion dollars. I personally believe that the results show, once again, that the Democrats know how to snatch defeat from the Jaws of Victory. We admirers of Dennis Kucinichs wife feel sorry about his level of showing. Was it 17 votes? How would you like to be in the Clinton house now! Aliens are among us and are living in Essex! They could be a neighbor, the friendly helping hand shoveling your driveway, the concerned citizens making sure everyone respects what they feel is best. Yes friends, begin starring at Essex people. These aliens want our "bodes well and bods! They want our women folk! How do you identify these aliens? Look for large artificially bulgy looking lips, smooth looking skin on 95 year olds, or users of long words. Yes, Collagen and Botox users are in Essex and I know 3!
