Peaches are 49 cents per LB at Sunflower. I got them last year for 39cents per lb & canned a ton, but I assume that with prices going up on everything, this is the lowest you are going to see per lb this year. Don't forget you can price match at WalMart. But if you are going to can I would go to Sunflower they usually have good quality produce.

Preschool Opening

Hi, my name is Amber Kunz. I live in Continental Ranch and run Little Busy Bodies Preschool from my home. I currently have an opening in my four year old class and was looking to see if anyone out there might be interested in enrolling their child in preschool at this late date. I currently have 4 boys and 1 girl (any girls out there?). Class is Monday/Wednesday 9:30-12:00 noon and tuition is $85/month. If you are interested, email me at amber_kunz24@yahoo.com. Thanks!

Does anyone else in Gladden Farms NOT have cable/satellite TV. We do not have either one of those and got the converter box for the "Big Switch", but now we only get telemundo-with or without an antenna. Does anyone have any suggestions? Renee

Crib & Mattress Free

We have a crib someone gave us that we have never used & don't need. It's in good condition(probably needs a paint job & then would look really cute) and comes with a mattress. Free for the taking. Let me know if anyone wants it or else Dare is going to trash it for taking up precious space in his garage.
