MI Town: Patty Taylor Dutcher

Does anybody know what time it is? Hopefully, by now we've all sprung ahead and even the pesky digital clocks in our vehicles have been changed over to daylight saving time.

For those of us in the midst of spring cleaning and looking to find space on our bookshelves, here's a great deal. The Monmouth Library is in need of good, used books for the ongoing book sale, and the friendly staff members will be happy to accept your donations. Especially needed are children's books.

If you haven't checked out the ongoing book sale shelves, all kinds of bargains are available to readers of all ages. The Friends of the Monmouth Library have scheduled another nearly new book sale for May 16-17.

After meeting MI Town residents Bob and Deby Davis, we were very pleased when they welcomed Kody, one of Golden Bond Rescue's foster dogs, into their home and their hearts.

Kody has had more than his share of medical challenges - including cancer and treatment with chemotherapy, but because of Bob and Deby's love and excellent care from both local and OSU veterinarians, he is able to share a happy and contented life in their home.

Last week's I-O editorial regarding health care for low income Oregonians reminds us that some who are working hard to provide for themselves and family members may need help with ever-increasing medical needs. Our legislators should take action on behalf of our citizens needing medical care.
