PSSA and Keystone exams canceled

How is everyone doing? Staying socially distant? I don’t know about you, but I am ready for this chaos to be over.

I moved my college senior out of his apartment March 21 and it was so depressing to think that a time that should be fun and exciting is now mundane and boring as he finishes his classes online. His graduation is postponed, hopefully to be rescheduled later this spring or summer. I haven’t given up hope for that.

‘With love in every stitch’

If you have the privilege of meeting the nicest and friendliest group of women who call themselves The Devonshire Knitters, consider yourself lucky.

They are all residents of the Devonshire Park Apartments in Salisbury Township and meet 2 to 4 p.m. every Tuesday to knit or crochet together. The group varies from week to week, but when a reporter from The Press recently met with them, the group around the card tables – Gini Kroll, Sandy Sewell, Jane Brankner, Lovey Sincavage, Sherry Erb and Judy Balliet continued to knit during the interview, their fingers never stopping.
