Gracie Goose - Jamie Cummings of Decatur had a problem. Her husband, Mike Hallan, was allergic to pets, but they wanted a pet badly. Their solution is unique, but has been a joyous learning experi- ence. They obtained a goose egg and hatched it in an incubator. Gracie was hatched on July 11, 2009. When Jamie's grandfather entered Vonderlieth LivingCenter, Jamie requested permission to bring her pet to visit. Gracie made her debut in February with a pink necklace for Valen- tine's Day and a white diaper. Gentle and social, Gracie has become a welcome guest at the nursing home. Jamie says Gracie has been wonderful company at home and surprisingly entertaining. "She has a variety of vocalizations. Sometimes it seems like she is actually talking to yOU."

Hearing gunshots, a resident found out it was a neighbor's backfiring car. Being automo- tive, no call was made to author- ities. A mysterious odox filled a resident' car. A squirrel under the hood caused the stench. The squirrel was of a demised nature. Sighting of unusual lights on the eastside of town turned out to be lights on a patr'ol car. Resident's 3 year mid daugh- ter ate jar of mayomnaise. All at once. No side effects. Looks like she's good to go, to handle school lunches when the time comes. Resident started his Spring outside cleanup. While check- ing gutters, he became entan- gled in yet to be removed Christmas lights. Lights are down. Ladder is down. Resi- dent is down, not injured.
