One of the highlights of my summer experience was the 50th reunion of my graduating class from St. Brigid's elementary school on Long Island. Back in 1963, 60 children sat in a small classroom hoping for big things in the future. We had spent eight years together, but now high school beckoned, and all our lives would change dramatically.
DEAR DR. ROACH: Please help me! I'm being shunned by family and friends because I have poison ivy, and they are afraid they will "catch" it. I've tried to educate them, but they insist I'm contagious. Will you please let people know once and for all (or at least for this season, since some will never believe it) that one has to come into contact with the oil -- whether from the plants, garden tools, pets, clothing, etc. -- in order to get the rash? I'm miserable enough without being told to stay away until the rash is gone. Thanks for your help. -- M.C.

The heat took a toll on the 2013 Corn Palace Festival with fewer carnival goers Saturday and some food vendors not doing as well "Things went smoothly," said Mark Schilling, director of the Corn Palace. "The one thing we can't control is the heat." According to Schilling, Wednesday had good sales but Saturday was lower compared to last year because of the hot weather, with many festival participants looking mostly for water. Hot food vendors suffer from the warm weather, he added.
FREEMAN -- The Rev. Al Peratt, of Sioux Falls, will speak at at 10:30 a.m. Sunday at Fellowship Harvest Community Church.

Some of you may remember the picture book "No Roses for Harry." Harry (a dog) receives a sweater from Grandmother. Poor Harry. The sweater is green and covered with yellow roses. "Little Owl's Orange Scarf," by Tatyana Feeney, has a similar premise. Little Owl's happy life of eating ice cream and riding his scooter is disrupted when his mommy makes him a scarf. It's itchy. It's long. It's orange. Very orange. "It will keep you nice and warm," says his mommy. And she insists that he wear it on his class visit to the zoo.
