Good news is right here

By WALTER REDDEN,

The TV and newspapers bring us a lot of news, but, for the most part, it is devastating – shootings, murder, fire in apartments, explosions on the highway and all kinds of drug problems – just to name a few. However, seldom do they report good news. I do wish that some day the TV might have a two minute pause for good news three times a week.

Her movement, as she walks, is comparable to a much younger person. No one would ever guess that she was approaching the century mark. All guesses might place her in her mid-70s.
