SHORELINE BYLINE: Wilson author included in "Chicken Soup" book

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Good morning dear readers: How’s everyone this week? I had the most refreshing vacation. Tommy Boy the JRT and I spent some time in the middle of the Chattahoochee National Forest in the southern portion of the Appalachian Mountains. We watched grandchildren and great-grandchildren ride horses; we swam, had campfires, saw the beautiful star-lit skies at night and filled up our lungs with fresh clean mountain air. No TV, no phone service, no Internet, no emails or Facebook. Life was good. Hope you mothers out there had a very pleasant day yesterday.

Monica Pomeroy from the WNY chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association wants you to know that a Wilson resident wrote a chapter for a new “Chicken Soup for the Soul — Living with Alzheimer’s and Other Dementias” book that centers on Alzheimer’s caregivers. Maria Montagna Bohlman’s piece, “Black Eyebrows” is included in in the 101 stories/essays in the book, with royalties going to the Alzheimer’s Association. It’s a great book for family members who have someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia. “My mother has dementia and that is why I wrote my story ‘Black Eyebrows.’ I was thrilled they published it. The book has helped me a lot by reading what others go through and how they handle their situation,” Montagna Bohlman said.

The Wilson Central School community is holding the Rademacher family close in its thoughts and prayers this week. Retired middle school principal Peter Rademacher, who died last month, guided students through their trials and triumphs for 17 years, and was an inspiration to many. All who knew him are grateful for the sacrifices he made over the years, in order to better serve our students and our school.
