Seventeen years ago a teaching job brought Doug and Jane Curfew to Morgan. Since then, they have had the opportunity to serve many Morgan children. Doug, a fifth grade teacher at Morgan Elementary, plays a very influential role in the lives of these young children as they begin to make the transition from elementary to middle school. He really enjoys the students he teaches and they in turn enjoy him. The students especially enjoy Doug’s love of ‘80s music as they get to partake of it in the classroom.

A clear glass lies atop the counter.  A young child fills the glass to the half-point mark with water.  Is the glass half full or is it half empty?  The answer could very well depend on the respondent’s attitude.

What are the memories that you have of the fair?  How about the smell of burgers or cotton candy?  How about the many animals and watching the kids show their 4-H projects?  What about all the exhibits in the exhibit hall?  What a showcase of talent! For many years, people of the county have entered their treasures into the county fair.

There are several things that I remember about visiting my Grandma Frances when I was young; Grandma was petite, standing only about 4’6” short and living alone in her spacious farmhouse.  She was small but very active and just a bit feisty if one chose to disagree with her or tease her about something.
