COVID-19 sure has had an bad effect on news in the area. From what I hear, most of the people in the Rader area are doing fine. Betty Stokes continues to heal from her surgery, and Barb Medlock is still at Webco. Midge Lewellyn still has a sore leg, but she is getting around better.

We had another week of ice and snow, which gave the Conway School kids a two-day break. But I hear there may be more rain and snow on the way — just so it doesn’t snow twenty-four inches, like it did one month in February. Don’t know the year that happened.

Another busy year is nearly gone at this writing. Christmas was interesting in the Rader area. Many were suffering from head and chest congestion with lots of coughing. I was miserable for three days, but was doing well by Christmas day. Lewis and Peggy Rader are both still very sick, and Wa…
