The January 17th death of Ernest W. "Bill" Stricker, 93, of Clinton is noted in this morning's Observer-Dispatch. Arrangements by Owens-Pavlot & Rogers Funeral Service, Inc., Clinton.

Mr. Stricker, a long-time resident of Barker Road, grew up in Hanover and was the younger brother of "Hedy" Eisenhut, who passed away in December.



Clean, white snow covered the area on Tuesday morning but by mid-afternoon, with temperatures in the high thirties and rain falling, the general conditions in the village and surrounding countryside were, simply, "Yuck!"

Everything was muddy and grungy. Rain made a shallow pond on top of the ice that covered the small pond at the foot of Grant Hill.


Conditions had been much nicer, over the weekend, when Jody Hildreth took these pictures at Rainbow Falls .................

............ and these, at Tinker Falls near the Labrador Ski Area.

He has a new super-fast lens that appeared to have "frozen" water in mid-fall ....

............ and super-sharp eyes, that spotted little frost-covered fungi on a log!

(Thank you, Jody!)
