'Harvey' debuts at Mielke this month

<p>Our spring production, "Harvey," written by Mary Chase and directed by Mary-Beth Kuester, is opening March 22 at the Mielke Arts Center. If you remember, Harvey is an invisible 6 1/2-foot rabbit that Elwood sees, but no one else does. As you can imagine, people think Elwood is a little strange ... especially when he is talking with Harvey! His sister, Veta, tries to have him committed, but somehow they commit her instead!

Careful what you wish for

<p>Well, I got a snowstorm, so you would think I would be happy. A couple of weeks back, I wrote that I enjoy a good snowstorm and love to watch the snow blow past. Well, the storm may have happened; however, it wasn't the kind that I like.</p><p>If I was in the age of making snowmen, I would love this, as it is good packing snow. It would be easy to have a great snowball fight, and also make wonderful snow forts.</p><p>I did make an effort to walk out to the end of the driveway this morning, simply to put the garbage at the roadside.

A love of books

<p>As for me, looking forward to reading a good book is right up there to looking forward to a bowl of ice cream. (Yes, that good!) I allow myself to sit down with my ice cream and my book after supper, and would rather read than watch TV. Television programming has become alarming.

It's a fun, family play, and we hope you will all come.

"There are a lot of caregivers out there who are dealing with stressful things," said Vicki Johnson, a senior outreach specialist for Kindred Hearts who facilitates the group. "It's a very informal group."

Many things can happen when dealing with dementia and the support group can show people they go through some of the same things, Johnson said.
