On Thursday Nov. 11 three Warrensburg High School students - Marissa Hayes, Kerrigan Roth and Josana Stone - delivered 80 lbs. or approximately 100,000 pull tabs from beverage, pet food, soup cans etc. to Ronald McDonald House in Albany. The money raised from collecting such tabs goes to help pay for the operation of Ronald McDonald house. The Ronald McDonald house provides comfort and respite for families seeking local medical treatment for seriously ill children. The students are asking folks in the region to save their tabs and drop them off at the office of the Warrensburg High School.
Thank you to Warrensburg's 'guardian angels'
This past week an elderly woman was spotted wandering along Main St. after midnight. Four young adults - E.J Brown, Kade Hamelin, Jill Bailey and Cindy Viele - spotted her and brought her the the rectory of St. Cecilia's on Main St. Sister Linda Hogan talked to the lady and called the Warren County sheriff's office which responded and they determined this lady was Josie's 87-year-old mother. The teens get a hearty "Thanks" from Baker and the entire community for guiding the elderly woman to appropriate authorities. Baker would also like to thank Sheriff's Officer Michael Anuszewski. New locks have been installed on the doors of the woman's residence to deter this from happening again.
Political signs littering landscape
Dull November days lend a depressing cast to the landscape, but the leftover political signs around town creates a litter that deepens the feeling.
While the signs offer a pleasant reminder of our nation's principle of freedom of speech, they do represent visual clutter after the election is over -- it would demonstrate responsibility if candidates removed the signs promptly after the election.
