donnelly news

Next edition: Oct 15th-21st Welcome to another version of the Donnelly news. I am still busy moving and getting things set up in my new house and catching up on some other jobs so have not had a lot of spare time to devote to this job. Weather news; there have been a few days with some rain showers during the past week but for the most part it has been sunny and warm. Farmers are busy picking corn; given the forecast I suspect most will be done in about a week or so. I understand that the corn is very dry when I talked to my neighbor on Sat he said they were hauling corn to town at 14%. I do understand that the bean harvest was only fair. .Correction: Mary Schultz has been hired to replace Peggy Wilke as Postmaster replacement not as postmaster STJ/KONG PARISH News: the confirmation servant event of collecting clothes for churches united in Morehead will continue until Oct 29th. They are accepting clothing, towels sheets and blankets (do not need to be new) as well as new personal care items.
