[Note: This is an extensive column for only one week. Since next week's issue (Sept. 28) is missing, perhaps some of this is actually from next week's issue. I cannot guarantee that all of this came out of the September 21 issue. There were some duplicate lines about the young people who went off to college, worded just slightly differently, and that is another reason I think this column may be the combination of two weeks of news instead of one./Angela Cassidy]
