Reporter's Instinct

REPORTER’S INSTINCT was evident with Mrs. Grefrath’s Akron Central School Kindergarten class Tuesday morning. The class, on their way to visit the Newstead Public Library saw something new at 67 Main Street and stopped in to check it out. The class was the first group to visit the new home of the AKRON BUGLE. Publishers Ken and Marilyn Kasperek took a few minutes to show students how a newspaper is put together and to answer a few questions, and the class treated the Kaspereks to a great “Thank You Song.” The Grand Opening of the new office is planned for early July, but if you see the lights on you are welcome to stop in. The AKRON BUGLE drop off box continues to be at the Akron Pharmacy, also on Main Street, and news can be sent to PO Box 464, Akron, NY, or to editor@akronbugle.com.

Stroke Screenings

My best friend who just turned 60 had a stroke recently and is now living out the rest of his days in a wheel chair and can hardly speak. What happened to him scares me more than anything. I can't think of anything worse than a disabling stroke. Is there any new health test out there that can help predict or prevent a stroke? I've seen first hand what a stroke can do, and I don't want it to happen to me.
