    So the Elk’s Club is now having bad movie nights. Naturally, when it was first announced, the paper wanted someone to cover the event. I read a brief description of the film and promptly hid under my desk until poor Minette was elected. I felt a little bad about that but I would have felt much worse if I had to actually watch that movie.

    Face the Facts: 
    South Korea currently has a thriving plastic-surgery business. Inexpensive face-lifts, nose-jobs and other bodily alterations make it a premier destination for those looking for a little surgically-enhanced self esteem throughout Asia and other parts of the world. Recently three Chinese women journeyed to “The Land of Morning Calm,” as South Korea is sometimes known, to go under the knife. As far as I know, the procedures went off without a hitch. Problems arose when the trio tried to return home. Their heads were wrapped from chin to scalp in bandages and their faces were so swollen that they looked nothing like their passport photos. Unable to confirm their identities, airport security refused to allow the women to board their plane. As I write these words, I have no idea if these poor women ever got home, or if they remain trapped at the airport, living a real life version of “The Terminal.”

    I’m disappointed.
    I’m disappointed in the citizens of this community. There is a $5 million bond out there for a new pool and the new pool is taking shape with a final design close at hand. No one has come to the meetings, which we have posted, to voice an opinion for or against amenities associated with the pool.
