In this issue of The New Falcon Herald, columnist Kathy Hare takes us back to the 1950s and 60s when the threat of nuclear war permeated America. The “Wild Hare” column is based on Kathy’s perspective as a 7-year-old.Tom Preble brings us back to modern day with his “Prairie Tales” about the kids he encounters as a school bus driver. As usual, Tom is funny and endearing.And our new columnist, Scott Carmack, brings us back to reality as he discusses the pros of life insurance policies. Rosemary Bakes-Martin also provides a dose of reality as she provides us with information from the health department regarding diseases related to animals.Besides our great columns, Kathleen Wallace has written an interesting and rather disturbing piece on the Falcon Vista development – you know, it’s the manufactured-home cluster near Highway 24 and Meridian Road. A year or so ago, we received a few calls from people requesting contact information for the rental properties. It was a good idea gone bad – as to why, you be the judge. Was it greed and fraud on the part of the developer or a county too eager to approve a development, or both?We’ve also continued our series profiling Falcon volunteer firefighters. Alicia Littlejohn visited with one rookie from the Falcon Firefighters Academy, who is about to graduate to a full-fledged firefighter.Speaking of profiles, Frank Patton of Frankie’s Too was the first and the sole advertiser in the inaugural issue of The New Falcon Herald. He hadn’t opened his Falcon store when the NFH debuted, but Frankie’s Too opened that summer as the only watering hole in Falcon. He celebrated a three-year anniversary this summer. We talked to Frank about the restaurant business and the challenges he faces as competition creeps into Falcon.This issue is short on D 49 sports. It’s time for a full-time sports reporter. We’re looking!Finally, Angie Morlan and family are off to Hawaii. Alicia and her husband are off to New England to get a glimpse of the fall colors, and the rest of the team is holding down the fort in Falcon.One special note: The team would like to wish Vince McConnell, Michelle’s father, a fast recovery from the surgery he had a couple of weeks ago. Good health and good cheer to Vince – and all of you. We’ll see you Oct. 6.-Michelle, Marylou and the team
