Sickness and distress: Dee Schaul is doing well enough to enjoy a trip to Florida with friends recently.
Karen Haub is around and about by now, doing much better. Jim Schultz is receiving cancer treatments and tolerating the well at this point. However, son-in-law, Randy Burkemper has had a relapse of his cancer. Diana Hackman (Winfield Secretary) has passed. The visitation is Friday, at Carter Rick Funeral Home in Winfield.
