Toboggans stolen from day care

The day care centre here in Devlin is hoping the eight toboggans that were stolen from there will be returned.
If you have any information about this matter, call 486-1264.

Or if you have the toboggans, and enjoyed them over the holidays, perhaps you can find it in your heart to return them so the young people who attend the day care can use them for the rest of the winter.

The Emo Legion recently hosted the annual Betty Kellar Memorial 500 and cribbage tournament, which was enjoyed by all players.
The high score in 500 went to Mary Gavin and Agnes Waldeck, with Yvonne Kellar and Lois Shine taking the low (or, as Cindy Kellar told me, the “skunk award”).
In cribbage, Ron and Jack Kellar took the high while Jackie Hunsperger and Gary McIntosh were “skunked.”

I’m hoping everyone had a great Christmas holiday.
Some of you hopefully noticed that I didn’t have a news column for the past two weeks. I was fortunate to have my son, Travis, his wife, Sara, and their three children home.
Our home often was filled with 10+ people, along with two dogs, and we proved there is fun in dysfunctional.
I’d like to wish everyone all the best for 2012. May good health, good people, and good Devlin news fill your year.

Robin’s 2¢:
A Devlin wife had taken the car on a trip to the grocery store.
She called home a half-hour later and the husband gruffly answered the phone.
“Honey,” she said. “I have some good news and some bad news.”
“Well, tell me the good news first,” said the husband.
“The airbags work,” his wife replied.
