Catherine Kurimski Injured

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

Catherine fell and broke her hip last week. Surgery was done and she will spend some weeks in recovery and physical therapy in an Albia care center. We wish her a speedy recovery.

Ballalatak and Chamberlain on Way to Recovery

Katherine Ballalatak after a respiratory illness and recovery in an Albia care center is back home.  We are happy she is back in Lovilia.

Mary Chamberlain who became sick at Christmas and has been in Albia in a care center is expected to come home in a few days.  We look forward to seeing you,  Mary.

Tim and Sandy Welsh move to Knoxville

Tim and Sandy have sold their rural home northwest of Lovilia to a family from State Center , Iowa.  The new owner works at a Pella factory and his wife is a national renowned rescue dog trainer.  We welcome them to the area.

Tim and Sandy have purchased and moved into a Knoxville home  which they are very excited about.

Gas N Go Closes Doors

The station had closed the store but now it has also closed down the self service gas pumps.  We will miss the local business which had been here many years.

Drug Ring

Law enforcement recently interrogated some Monroe County persons, jailed some, and apparently continues to try to close in on drug makers and sellers.  It appears little information is available at this time as they continue to investigate.
