Friday night I took one of the residents, where I work, to the Martina McBride
Joys of Christmas concert. It was great, she had Don Mattingly and Dean Martin
as guests, yes, and I said Dean Martin. You had to be there to believe it. If
I was you, I would definitely put her show as one of the things to see next
year. It is really worth the time and money.

Astrology for JoEllen Seil on December 7th; your flexibility will
come in very handy today, when different opportunities arrive.
Before your loved ones file a missing persons report, let them know you're
still here -- you just need some time to yourself. Now is the moment to tackle
a few weighty matters before they get even bigger.
Astrology for Bill Jones on December 8th; if you are traveling
today, you will be pleasantly surprised at how easy it is.
One or two needier types may willfully ignore your 'Do Not Disturb' sign and
keep pestering you for some attention. Tell them firmly that now is not the
time for their shenanigans. You have business to take care of.
Astrology for Brandon Seigert on December 9th; Good luck is
cyclical. Your luck will be changing today.
Your current situation is stellar, thanks to your efforts and those of your
lucky stars. Work is on the upswing, your pockets are full and your
relationship is blooming (or a prospect is heating up). Bask in the glow.
good luck is holding out, but don't try to profit too much from it. If you're
not just enjoying the ride, but trying to game it too, you'll find weird
consequences start to pile up.
Sheer crazy luck is going to help you figure out what to do about your current
situation, so keep your eyes open for serendipity. Things will get much better
if you follow up on your impulses.
More than most signs, yours understand that all that glorious mess, chaos and
diversity are precisely what makes love and life so great. Someone else is
right on your same wavelength today. Enjoy your understanding

$40.00.Max did us proud, he used to money towards getting the yellow cat that

I got the surprise of my life Saturday morning when I saw one of Santa’s
reindeer in downtown Grayville. I ‘m not sure which one but it was sure in a
hurry to get out of town. I was leaving the Dollar store and getting into my car
when a deer came from the direction of the bank, tried to cut thru by the
theatre and then turned and darted across North Street ,jumped across the back
of a passing truck, boy was the driver surprised, and ran down the road pass the
Navigator office. I sure hope he finds his way home in time for Christmas Eve; I
sure wouldn’t want Santa to be late because of one lost reindeer.
Betty Coe is convalescing at the New Harmony Health Care Center. On
top of all her other problems she recently sustained a fractured arm and a
fractured disc in her back. I talked to her nephew, David Burrows, on Sunday and

I was at the library last week and Molly Jo told

information on who stole the computers .It takes a really low kind of person to

has invaded their area. Despite attempts to catch the crafty fellow, he is still
at large. Better find better bait, Tim. Maybe some Moose chowder would work.

Things have been out of sorts with my grandsons
this last week. J.J. had a sinus infection and decided he would come to G’ma’s
house to convalesce, then his brother Joey had a reaction to some medicine they
gave him for migraines and had to go the emergency room. Shana said the two boys
have been in one room at the E.R. so much this last year in Mt.Carmel Hospital
that they ought to name it the Luecke Room. Haley Joe was here again on Saturday
morning; she was feeling a lot better this week. I was saddened to hear of the
passing of Berry Bertram. He and Joyce were neighbors of my Grandmother and
myself for a lot of years. I know he will be sorely missed by his family. What I
want to know is why there was only one Grayville firefighter shown meeting the
President. Did the others not count or what?
Hope everyone had a good weekend, I’m sure the rain on Sunday was welcome. If
only to cool things down a little.

Weekly Forecast for September 26, 2005
Keep your head down as the week begins. You'll face of flurry of distractions
and demands on Monday, and you'll need some help from your friends to see you
through. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, others will look to you to take the
lead, so don't be bashful about making plans and pointing the way. (And don't
sweat the details.) On Friday and Saturday, get out and get gregarious.
Socializing will leave you feeling energized -- and you just might be able to
help others out with your sensitive, diplomatic touch. This Sunday, all eyes are
on you. Flirt up a storm.
Daily Extended Forecast for September 29, 2005 for Sharon Broster Walden
Forget what others think. It's not easy, but it's necessary. Be proud of whom
you are and what you've accomplished, and don't measure yourself by any
standards that don't fit. The main question is, are you happy? Do you get a
sense of satisfaction out of your life? Then that's what really matters. If you
can answer in the affirmative to both those questions, you're way ahead of the
game and better off than most.
Daily Extended Forecast for September 30, 2005 for Gary Bisch
Go your own way. There comes a time when you have to decide what it is you
believe and separate that from what you think you should believe or what others
tell you to think. Having a set of personal morals and standards is an
invaluable tool for this life, so work on developing yours. It may not be
terribly easy at first -- after all, going along with the crowd can be ever so
much more comfortable -- but it'll be so worth it in the long run.
Congratulations to Roger Odom on the birth of his new
granddaughter born on Saturday, will give you all the details next week.
Nedra Way spent the weekend with her son, Scott and his
family, wife, Debbie, sons, Matt, Elijah, and Nolan at their home in Carmel,
Dallas and Ruth Ann White left on Tuesday of last week
for Kentucky to get ready for their son, Curtis’ wedding on Saturday. They
returned home on Sunday.
Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. C.K. Rahmoeller on
their wedding Saturday at the Methodist church, with a reception following at
the banquet hall at the American legion.
Haley Joe was visiting again on Saturday, but she
wasn’t feeling to well, got a cold.
A couple of months ago I lost my Siamese cat that I had
had for about eight years, but my friends have been looking for another one. On
Friday, my best friend, Richard Schmittler, located one for me. Sugar Plum was
delivered to my house by Julie duke Cowling. The cat is almost eight years old
and a beautiful cat but she weighs 16 ½ pounds. Her former owner said she had
never seen food she, Sugar Plum, didn’t like. I believe it. She is finally
settling in and getting use to my other cats. Norm says, she definitely will be
going on a diet.
A few Grayville residents spent the weekend down at the
Garden of the Gods horseback riding. Angie and Danny Kuykendall, Frankie Gill
and Dustin Grimm are just the few I know about. It was really a beautiful
weekend to go riding.
Danny Allen was called back early from New Orleans due
to the illness of his wife Melba, My source said she is on the road to recovery
The rest of the Grayville bunch who went got back
Saturday morning just in time to go on a fire run. What a homecoming! To all of

The Sun moves into Libra on the 22nd.the key words for
a Libra is sometimes” what’s in it for me”? Do you know any Libras like that?
It's all about compromise as the week begins, so be
careful and cautious in your one-on-one relationships on Monday. Whatever you
bring to the table (positive or negative) will be multiplied and returned. On
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning, your natural diplomacy will shine.
Others will look to you to give advice and settle disputes -- and don't be
surprised if they're impressed (and even attracted to you) in the process. From
Thursday afternoon through Saturday, expect to be filled with earnest and
expansive intellectual energy -- you'll be eager to talk about new things with
new people. This Sunday, stick to the program and stay patient.

Weekly Forecast for September 12, 2005
Provided by Astrology.com
hard work and creativity are paying off as the week begins! Follow-through is
its own reward of course, but on Monday and Tuesday you'll get more tangible
results from your efforts. (And don't be surprised if others find that ambitious
energy of yours attractive.) On Wednesday and Thursday, consider some
experimentation to complement your already extraordinary organizational skills
-- you might just might find an even better way of doing things. On Friday and
Saturday, don't count on getting things done (or on getting people to move as
quickly as you might like). Be flexible and take this as an opportunity to take
it easy. On Sunday, search for your true sense of purpose -- and expect to find

Relationship conflicts are messy. You aren't the only one who's right -- or
Politely decline the free tickets to someone else's drama, no matter how they
try and entice you to participate. It's never any use to try and stamp your
opinions on someone else or their relationship, so resolve to let sleeping dogs
Astrology for Ida Van Fleet
on September 16th
Find a way to reorganize your stuff -- you'll immediately see what's missing.
It's important to you to control the tasks that you take on, but being a touch
more flexible will help you out a lot more now. Learn to bend and follow the
surprises the universe throws in your path.
Everyone have a great week
and tell me your news.

I did. I didn’t have time to get a lot of news, so please give me a call or
e-mail me with all your visitors and I’ll get it in next week.
Tim and Sue Dutko had an all weekend pajama party, that is to say they kept the
weekend very casual for their guests from the Chicago suburbs. They were the
Dutko’s son, Chris Norlin, Tim’s brother Tom and wife, Beth, their daughter,
Jennifer, and son, Tom and Tom’s friend, Julie.
My granddaughter, Haley Joe and I made a trip up town on Saturday morning. She
had her eyes on everything. Sure wore me out. She got tired of the stroller and
she can sure move them little legs. And of course J.J. spent the weekend with
Norm and me.
My other grandson, Joey came down on Saturday night to go out to supper with me,
but I ended up having to work at Rick’s Place so we’ll have to make it another
night. It seems he saw this commercial on TV about a grandma setting the table
for herself and a grandson, but the grandson was too busy getting high on drugs
to spend time with her. It really affected Joey deeply, and he told his mom he
wanted to spend time with me. He is really a good kid not in to a lot of things
some of today’s teenagers are. He does have a girlfriend, tho and she takes up a
lot of his time.
Mona Willitt Riley was here spending time with friends and family, Jay and
Just a few of the people I saw over the weekend were Tom Horste, Ronnie and
Donnie Lingafelter and their younger brother, Bobby Taylor, Doug Duvall and his
family, Eddie Paris, Mr. and Mrs. Bill Belew, David McGarvey and his daughter,

Tony Treadway, Oswego, Illinois, spent the weekend with his father, Conrad.
Shawn and Kenny Hawkins, Chicago surburbs, were here spending time with their
parents, Keith and Judy Hawkins.
Tim and Becki Alcorn had their annual Labor day Party, I’m sure it was a huge
success. Sorry I missed it.

Astrology for Mary Helen Rahmoeller on September 7th;
Making a major purchase with someone else could cause some waves. Take it slow.
If someone insists on being snippy, soldier on and do what you know needs to be
done in spite of their unhelpful attitude. If their assistance is absolutely
required, let them know that they're just hindering things with their snarkiness
Astrology for Barbara Munsey on September 11th;
Family obligations are opportunities to pay back the love you've been given.
Who's laughing now? Well, you are actually! While some other signs are deep in
the doldrums, you're awash in feelings of goodwill. Look for some like-minded
types to hang with -- cheering someone up right now might take too much

The Midranger band will be playing at Rick’s Place on Labor Day weekend.
This is a great band, try to stop and listen to them
My granddaughter Haley Joe made her first trip to the library on Saturday, I
hope it won’t be her last. She really looked the place over, from the toys
furnished for toddlers to the books. She has added new words to her growing
vocabulary. She now says thank you. Mommy and Daddy are teaching her right.
J.J. was here again this weekend. He can hardly wait till next weekend. Hope he
saves some money for Grayville Days.
Mark and Donna Campbell had their grand opening at their newly purchase business
on Saturday. I was down for a while and it was packed. They gave away drink

the business is called Chappy’s.

I heard that the Legion is going to start having suppers again on Saturday

are greatly missed. I really enjoyed listening to them talk about the “good ole

Weekly astrology for
As the week begins, satisfy your urge to socialize by finding a likeminded group
to hang out with (especially one with a strong female influence). On both Monday
and Tuesday, you'll feel energized and organized by companionship and teamwork.
On Wednesday and Thursday (and the early part of Friday, too), try to stay
flexible. Overbearing people could threaten to overwhelm you with conflicting
plans and unreasonable demands, and the best thing you can do is take a patient,
helpful attitude. On Friday afternoon and evening and on into the weekend, you
might feel like putting on a cape and striking an inspiring pose. Your
superpowers -- chiefly, the ability to identify what needs to be done and get to
it -- are clearly evident for everyone to see.
Astrology for Angie Kuykendall on September 2,
There's a lot going on, but you're keeping your cool and everyone's
You're determined to do something to help people, especially
when it comes to the environment. Whether you're planning ways to raise
awareness, donating money or buying a hybrid car, you're sure to set an example
Astrology for Julie McFarland on September6th;
Deep discussions about values cause
you to re-think things. Expect indecision.
They may not be what you expected, but your companion du jour opens the
possibilities for what you thought of as enjoyable experiences. Who knew mowing
the lawn and playing in the sprinkler could be such fun?
Everyone have a safe and enjoyable
Labor Day weekend and get out and partake of all Grayville has to offer for our
Grayville Days celebration.

feeling better now and I hope she will soon be out and among friends doing the
good work again.

passport up to date? You’re about to go exploring to find the answers you seek.
Don’t bother packing—you’ve already got everything you need.
Astrology for Carl Brown on August 26th; you’re
a whiz at logic right now. If there is a puzzle, you can solve it.
It takes time to take care of all the nooks and
crannies, but the peace of mind will bring you is well worth the effort. So make
out that to-do list, and definitely check it twice—heck, even thrice.
Astrology for Jeff Compton on August 31st; you
softie, always rooting for the underdog. Now you can give them a hand.
Sometimes the stars work for you—sometimes they
make you work for yourself. Your potential today lies in your hands. Survey the
situation around you carefully before you decide to proceed.
Everyone have a great week and SMILE.

Delores Compton on August10th; You’ve got a friend. In fact you have several.
You are one lucky lion. Someone’s got your back. So keep moving ahead and don’t
worry about catching all the tiny little details. Just make sure you say thank
you after it’s all over and let them know you’ll return the favor.
Maynette Alcorn on the 14th; if you’ve got it flaunt it—and you’ve got it in
spades. Get your ya-yas out. Something is so sinfully delicious that you can’t

Remember; moderation is the key, especially when it comes to indulgence.
Katie Buckels on the 16th; Put the reins on your ego. Why ruin all your natural
charms with arrogance. You’re a hotshot, there’s no doubt about that—but lighten

about the subtle, yet lasting effects of humility.

Astrology for Karen Rahmoeller on August 4th;
the stars put you just where you love—center stage. Soak up the warmth of that
spotlight and get ready to dazzle the audience with your best display. Don’t
worry if you don’t have anything prepared—frankly you’re at your best when you
can improvise. It’s not as if you would ever be at a loss to entertain the
crowd, especially with that double dose of charisma and glamour you’re packing
Astrology for Dana Schroeder on august8th;
every so often, others accused you of making everything all about you, but those
finger pointers certainly couldn’t find fault with your current behavior. Right
now it’s far more gratifying to spend your time and considerable energy to
helping someone out whom desperately needs a hand. It might be tempting to ask
yourself exactly what you’re getting out of the deal, but that’s the old you
talking. Let your heroic self shine through.
I heard Steve Hartsock is a little under

One of my residents went to St. Louis on
Sunday to see the Cubs Cardinal game. to their surprise, when they got there
they found out the game had been delayed to 7P.M.Their tickets said 1:15P.M..The
game was delayed because ESPN couldn’t get there till that night. Needless to
say, they came back home but he did get to watch the game on TV. I wonder how
many people had tickets and showed up at 1 o’clock and if they can get their
money back for tickets not used.
A special birthday wish to Vertis Spencer
on July29th.I hope he is feeling better and will enjoy his special day. Just how
old are you anyway, Vertis?
If you want to hear some good music but don’t
want to get out in the heat, go to Rick’s Place and hear the Midranger Band. I
guarantee you will enjoy it.
My daughter, Shana and grandson, Joey was here this
weekend visiting family and friends and practicing up their pool playing skills
at the Youth Center. They both enjoy this mother-son time together. Maybe you
should spend a little quality time with your son or daughter there.
How about this heat this last week? I hope
everyone stayed in as much as they could and if they had to be out they took
care to drink enough liquids and wear sunscreen. As for me I came down with
sinus problems and have had a severe headache for days. Hope the cooler weather
comes soon or at least the humidity goes down.

response to the astrology items, they will continue to be in my column.
Astrology for Ginny Bohach on
July28th; Home is probably where the heart is tonight, as money and business
concerns preoccupy you and a relationship is confusing.
Astrology for Billy Terrell on July
30th; you’re a social butterfly once again, having fun, enjoying a relationship
tonight. The excitement might get out of hand later on, though.
As I stated before Mercury is retrograde,
so look for problems in communications, errors in the newspapers. and such as
This past week I received an e-mail that
disturbed me just a little but I considered the source and decided it wasn’t
worth the effort to get mad about it. The e-mail read as follows;” Very few
people, if any, believe in any kind of astrology. It would be better if you
didn’t put these stupid predictions in your news.” I won’t say who sent it
suffice to say he sends a lot of letters to the editor. He also stated he had
studied astrology and it was bogus.
I do not put the astrology in to tell people
how to live their lives. If someone gets a little chuckle out of it then good
for them. If no one believes in it, then there are an awful lot of people who
must just buy magazines for the fun of it. I know of one president who had his
own personal astrologer. So there are people who believe.
I will leave it up to my readers, if you want
the astrology taken out of my news, call me or e-mail me or call the Navigator
office and tell them. I’m sorry I had to bring this up but as you are the
readers it should be your choice. If I don’t hear any thing negative it will
stay in. Thanks for your time.

work, and he had a good time. Got to see Billy ray Cyrus, Alan Jackson, Travis
Tritt and others. If you are a country music fan, try to go sometime. It is well
worth the money it cost.
