Monday Memories: What could be better than a midday nap in the great outdoors?

Oh “to sleep, perchance to dream,” during a midsummer day’s nap. Shakespeare not withstanding, a sun-drenched and comfy camper stretches out on a picnic table bench at Independence Dam State Park near Defiance. In this 1970 Blade archive photo, he peeks from under his fedora to spy who’s interrupting his slumber. July is prime camping season in northwest Ohio, provided you can elude the rain.

Kitchen remodeling should include check up of various systems

Q. My family and I live in a 1960s era home in an older neighborhood. My wife and I have contracted to have our kitchen remodel completed here this fall. The layout of the kitchen remains the same, so the appliances stay in the same location and the sink and dishwasher remain in the same spot. We are going to get new appliances and fixtures along with removing a wall between the kitchen and dining room for the new island. Should we consider replacing the electrical and plumbing that is behind the walls while doing the renovation? — Clark in Angola.

I inherited the great idea of putting flamingos in yards from my predecessor, Cari Martinez. Thanks, Cari, for the excellent foundation before I began at Angola United Methodist Church. So, we used the flamingos as a fundraising opportunity. People bought insurance to avoid the flamingos in their yard. While still, other people made donations to have those they loved receive flamingos in their yard.
