On Thursday, Aug. 20, the Booster Club made a donation of $250 to the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) in Mark Schoenrock's name. 
Schoenrock was the presenter chosen to speak at the Booster Bash this year.
Kirk Weichel, President of the Booster Club, explained that the organization was able to make this donation because Schoenrock refused to accept money for speaking at the Bash.
“Every year they get a speaker, like a motivational-type speaker, to give an address at the Booster Bash,” said Weichel. “In Mark's case this year, he just laughed at us and said 'I don't do this for money.' So, I don't remember which board member it was who suggested that we should donate some money in his name to the VFW.”
Weichel explained Schoenrock wanted to have the chance to give back to those people who are defending this country and said how grateful he is to have people like Schoenrock in the community.

As I Sit Here Thinking...

Cynthia Scheer
Staff Writer
My brain is always going at a hundred miles an hour, which is probably why I have a terrible time remembering much of anything from one moment to the next. It’s also why I talk so fast: If my mouth doesn’t keep up with my brain I forget what I’m talking about. 
I’ve noticed, though, that I can’t talk and do something else at the same time. If Michael and I are picking up toys off the living room floor and I start to tell a story, I have to stop what I’m doing and stand there and talk. I can’t focus on both talking and putting the toys where they go. 
Here are some of the things my hundred-mile-an-hour brain has been thinking about lately:

It Took 25 Years But I Finally Did What My Dad Told Me

My Dad and I had a great relationship. I don’t think it was possible for a father and son to be closer than me and my Dad were. Even though he has been gone for nearly 20 years hardly a day goes by that I don’t think about him at some point or another.
Dad was always the one I went to for advice. “Ask Dad, he’ll know,” usually went through my head when I had a question or problem. And whatever my Dad told me to do that’s exactly what I would do.
When I bought the Journal-News nearly a quarter of a century ago one of the first things my Dad told me was to always wear a tie to work. “Businessmen should always wear ties,” he said. “If you look like a professional people will take you more seriously.”
Okay.
