|Johnny & Miriam Keim Open Store|
When Johnny and Miriam Keim visited a sur-plus store in Wooster, Ohio, they were impressed with the low prices on the merchan-dise. They felt they could provide their own town with the same shopping option so they opened JD Sur-plus in Ashland, Ohio on May 5th. The “J” stands for John and “D” for David, the names of their two young sons.
The goal for the merchandise is to price each item, as much as possible, at half retail price. They receive new shipments every month or two.
JD Surplus has house-hold items, small kitchen appliances, pots and pans, dishware, tools,lawn mowers, exercise equipment, furniture, and many other miscel-laneous items.
They accept cash or credit cards. There is a 14 day return on any item that doesn't work, as long as the original receipt is presented.
JD Surplus is located at 500 Virginia Ave (Rear), Ashland, Ohio 44805.

|Meet With An Attorney|
Do you have questions about Wills, Power of Attorneys or Living Wills? On Saturday, July 16th, at 8 AM at Arlen & Dee Yoder’s house, you can meet with an attorney and learn all you need to know to make legal decisions for yourself and your family. No cost to get info and ask questions!
Wills are necessary for families and those who want to direct their belongings and personal property to others in the event of death. POA’s for Medical decisions will tell medical personnel the name of the person you trust to make medical decisions for you if you aren’t able to do so yourself. Living Wills let medical personnel know what kind of medical procedure you would like to receive at the end of your life.
Come and learn more about legal issues!
|Barbara Burkholder Wants Your Story!|
“I am working on several book projects!! One of them could include you!
I am writing a book titled Quilt of Many Stories; a book that will have between 30 - 50 short stories depending on the responses I receive and the length of the stories. I believe everyone has a story whether you are born and raised Amish or not; however, since Amish is where I was born and raised that is what I am familiar with and the vision for this book is unique to those who were born and raised Amish, particularly those who have chosen for what-ever reason to leave their culture/religion and move into what we used to call the world or the English world.
The vision is to be able to reach a world mostly ignorant to the truth of the world we come from and to allow many of you who have a powerful testimony a chance to share. It will also be a book that will provide hope and encouragement to those who are maybe just beginning or thinking about beginning this journey!! There are many myths and romanticized views of what it is to be Amish and my goal is to share real life experiences with the world and those experiences are as varied in number as there are Amish communities out there maybe even more so!
So I invite you to share your story and share this questionnaire with anyone else you know who may be interested in sharing their story!”

|Mini Manners Manual|
Have you ever been at a party or event and you just weren't sure what to do, how to act in the situation, or even which fork to use? I know I have. We can all use a brush up of our manners from time to time.
In the next few issues, this back page of Dee’s News is going to be used as a Manners Mini Manual. I stumbled across a website that was filled with great manners advice and the writer was funny, too! Here’s the link if you’d like to go to it and read for yourself:
In this issue, we’ll tackle some basic manners. Here we go!
