  • A young woman who was born and grew up in Mora is now serving in the Peace Corps in Mozambique, Africa.

    Andrea Martinez, 24, has been assigned to the Catholic mission in Dombe. She is working as a librarian and teacher.

    Martinez will be serving there for two years. She had brushed up on her French, thinking that she would be assigned to a French-speaking country.

  • I’ve discovered a few of my readers think my sweet brother Bill is a figment of my imagination. And some of my friends want to see a picture of Bill. My editor, Mercy, asked me a while ago if I had any photographs to go along with a story. Well, the indoor jobs when it is so cold caused me to dig out an old box of pictures, and there it was! A Kodak moment with sweet brother Bill, no less.
