Yesterday afternoon Karen Blaylock broke her pencil while writing her family’s grocery list, according to a source close to the situation.  It is not known if she sharpened the broken pencil or discarded it for a pencil in her pencil cup.  Due to the mishap, Mrs. Blaylock arrived late at the Stop & Shop Deli, so she was unable to taste the various free sampling of cheeses that were on display.

The pay phone located at the commuter lot located on Todd Street has been removed to make way for the Route 72 extension.  Area resident Al Tunis is distressed, “I loved that telephone.  I recall making many a call from that phone.  This is sad.”

Due to the popularity of cell phones (156 million American’s own a cell phone) the need for public pay phones has diminished.  The phone company has not decided if a telephone will be placed at another location within the village.

My sources tell me that a memo is currently being drafted by the Forestville Toursim Association (FTA), and is under consideration to be mailed to all Forestville business establishments.  The letter advises them to instruct their employees to not be depressed about the death of singer Michael Jackson.  A portion of the missive drafted by FTA President Heather Ross and an unknown underling reads, “The death of Mr. Jackson is unfortunate but it should have no effect on the business community in Forestville.  Please remind your employees that people don’t come to Forestville to be depressed.  They come here for goods and services.”   

Ms. Ross could not be reached for comment.
