    Updated Aug 10, 2021

  • Kicking It with Phyllis Diller

    Updated Jul 29, 2021

    Elizabeth Youngman Westphal Special to the Village News With each passing decade I am more and more inclined to disregard the “Hints from Heloise” columns. As the years fade, I often recall my dogged dedication to her columns. I read “Hints from Heloise” because like me, she was an Air Force officer’s wife. Who better to emulate than a successful military wife? Or so I thought when I was a young naïve bride. It is only now that I see the error of my ways. If I could, I would change the whole course of my life. Had I not foll...
