Posted on September 2, 2014 at 1:16 pm

Tomorrow is a special day of sorts for many of us in the newspaper business — and a lot of people in other professions, also — all of whom delivered papers.

    Did you know that newspapers help ripen tomatoes? Wrap a tomato in newspaper and keep in on the counter. It will ripen faster than normal. Salsa, anyone? This week’s column is helper friendly. We have a lot of people around this town who like to help! Trash trucks are hard to follow. The trucks lights are flashing, they are moving slowly and there is a guy hanging on to the

    I hope the weather is cool as you are reading this. Someone in this town is not living right for us to have such hot temperatures. Admit it and straighten up because these temperatures are crazy and you will be punished! Our sports editor, Don Kruse, mentioned how tough our football players were for playing so hard in their opening football game in the heat. Some of the younger bearcats

    Did you know that if you need to dry out shoes or boots a crumpled up newspaper works perfectly? Stuff the newspaper sheets down tight enough and it will help keep the shoe’s shape as it dries. Back-to-school haircut time. Please do not use a bowl as a haircut pattern! We have great hairstylists here in Hermann.

    Bad week in Hermann if you were a rib. The VFW had great success with their BBQ fundraiser for Honor Flight. Lots of ribs and burgers were gobbled up. I actually bought a slab, took them home and my husband said, “Why don’t you get more since they are so good?” And I did! I spied several new American flags flying around Hermann this weekend. They looked really good. Keep
