Wheatland school celebrated

ELLINWOOD - Remember the good ol' days of the 1950s and 60s? In retrospect, those days may not have all been "good", but nonetheless, can all be looked at as part of early life for persons in their 50s and 60s. The price of gas was 30 cents; eggs and a gallon of milk were 54 and 49 cents respectively; stamps, four cents; and the cost of a new home was $18,000. Wouldn't people give anything for that now?

Beware of counterfeiters’ who hand off fake NFL goods

During the playoff season fans' enthusiasm often manifests itself in the form of purchases of a favorite team's merchandise. The lead up to the Super Bowl gets emotions high – and prices can seem high as well. So many go searching for bargains. Unfortunately, some of those "bargains" that can be so alluring are cheaper for a reason: they are fakes. That means the workmanship and the materials used in their manufacture will be of inferior quality, making that "great deal" quickly turn into a rip-off.
