Hello, we greet you with news of Upper Adams by hopefully taking a step in the right direction to keep you up to date. Can you believe the ups and downs of weather, health-wise, weather-wise and otherwise? What the world needs now is peace. Please pray for all, and better days ahead (we hope). Some of us still believe the devil is working overtime. Do you believe it, too?”

Now it is almost “back to school” time — I hope you are ready. Just do your very best. In the meantime, check out the carnivals, bingos, special events, sports — no time for fishing — too hot and too much to do. Please take time for family and friends, and attend church. Fall is closer than you think, so enjoy what you can, when you can, as often as you can. See the animals and lovely birds or butterflies go by as fall harvest is coming quickly. Drive with care — please do not text, use caution with fires as conditions are very dry — until we get some rain. Continue to pray for peace, troops, families and keep in touch with this friendly, weekly column in Friday’s Gettysburg Times until we meet again — God be with you all!

“Around Upper Adams” with Ruth Bretzman is published in the Gettysburg Times every Friday.
