couple of weeks ago LDN found this young group out in the heat
giving away cold drinks. The First United Methodist Church Kids
Club was also trying to do something good for one of their
teachers. While the drinks were free, the class was taking freewill donations that would later be given to
their teacher Katie Pezold, who was moving to Rhode Island with her
husband to start a new church. It's always good to
see our youngest generation getting involved in selfless acts
and reaching out to help others.

This May 20, 2006, file photo
shows author John Updike speaking during a panel discussion at BookExpo America 2006 in Washington. Updike's childhood home in
Pennsylvania has been purchased by a group that plans to restore
it and turn it into a museum. The John Updike Society bought the
home in Shillington, about 50 miles northwest of Philadelphia,
for $180,000 on Monday. The Pulitzer Prize-winning author lived
there until he was 13.
The society hopes the 1900 house can be
preserved and re-created as it would have looked in Updike's
youth. Best known for his novels chronicling the life of
Harry "Rabbit" Angstrom, Updike won Pulitzers for two of those
stories, "Rabbit Is Rich" and "Rabbit at Rest." He died in 2009
at age 76.

Molina had to leave the game.
