On behalf of the New Castle Cub Scouts Pack 221 we would like to thank all the community that came out and had a great day. It was by far and away the best derby that I can remember.

I think that our pack rocked at our first attempt of hosting the Mr. T’s Fishing Derby. It was a great team effort, with most of the regular volunteers being present.

We couldn’t have done it without the help from the parents like Jim and Carolyn Suehring, Tim and Shannon Smith, and their wonderful daughter Shalynn Smith, Dustin and Heather Allison, Debbie Wilson, Terry Tharp, and Joni Harcourt.

An additional thanks goes out to Brian Grey from the Division of Wildlife, Kevin Hurley – fly fishing guide and local Realtor, all the gang from Mr. T’s, Russell Talbot, Liz, Deb, Bob and Dave, just to mention a few, and Larry McDonald, Hanna, and the staff at our New Castle Recreation Department. How about those scout helpers, Jeremy Suehring, Brandon Smith, River Harcourt, Kyle Thompson and Bradley Wilson. Kelley Cox was there shooting up a storm of photos for the Post Independent. Thanks, Kelley, for all you do. You are an amazing photojournalist.

A special thanks goes out to the donors, Mr. T’s, Mike Marcucci at Pepsi, The New Castle McDonald’s, Kevin Stuart at the Rifle Walmart, and Ed and Shirley Smith. You made it special. New scouts signed up along with new scout leaders, like John Acha for the Tiger Cubs. Way to go Heather Allison.

It was fun, as it’s all about the kids. Best wishes to you all, and thanks again to all of those that made this day special for about 80 kids.

Our Nurses Inc. is a reliable and dependable mainstay in a home health care field where agencies frequently come and go. Since its inception, Our Nurses has grown from a field staff of six, to an office staff of four and a field staff of 30. Among them are registered licensed, licensed practical nurses, certified nursing assistants, home health care aides and companions.

The growth of Our Nurses is directly related to the attitudes of our clients. After our clients experience the benefits of having our nursing staff in their homes, they often view us as an extension of their own family.

We have adopted the phrase “Home Health Care That Feels Like Family” as our philosophy, and dedicate ourselves to provide care and privacy in their own homes. Whether our clients need assistance for several hours a day, or need 24-hour care seven days a week, we can provide the ideal solution, which is home health care at an affordable rate.

We would like to thank all of our staff at Our Nurses for all the hard work and dedication to our clients and the community. Not only is it Nurse’s Appreciation week but also a time to thank our mothers, so this is a heartfelt appreciation of Mother’s Day from Our Nurses.

Hellen Doane RN, L.N.C, director of Nursing
