Where are they now?

Rodney Paul

Born June 19, 1958, and raised in Belsano, Rod Paul (no relation to the Belsano pioneer family of Pauls) is a 1976 graduate of Blacklick Valley High School. Married to the former Gwen Gallagher since June 24, 1978, Rod and Gwen are the parents of two boys, Nicholas and Shawn. Except for a two-year residence in Yorksprings, Rod and Gwen have stayed in our local area to build a life for themselves and their two boys.

These days, Rod does double employment duty, as a truck driver for William G. Slatterlee & Sons, Inc.,,a fuel distribution company, and he has recently opened his own auction center on Ford's Corner Road in Jackson Township. Rod has been auctioneering since 1996, either as an apprentice or a licensed auctioneer.

When remembering his days growing up in Belsano, Rod fondly remembers his hunting and fishing trips with his grandfather, Clinton Paul, who passed away in February 2000 at the age of 91, and the many days he and his pals worked on cars and did some drag racing. These days, drag racing is a fond memory and Rod's hobbies now are collecting old coins and donating time when possible to the Jackson Township Volunteer Fire Company. The Paul family are active members of St. John Vianny Catholic Church in Mundy's Corner.

Anyone wishing to send greetings can find Rod at RTPaulAuctions@Hotmail.com.

Tomorrow: At the auction, a special feature. Jon Kennedy's postcards are scheduled to resume on Wednesday.

Notes to God

A parochial school teacher asked her class to write notes to God. Here are some of the notes the children handed in:

Dear God: I want to be just like my Daddy when I get big, but not with so much hair all over.

Dear God: You don't have to worry about me; I always look both ways.

—Sent by Sallie Covolo

Thought for today

We must both, I'm afraid, recognize that, as we grow older, we become like old cars—more and more repairs and replacements are necessary. We must just look forward to the tine new machines (latest Resurrection model) that are waiting for us, we hope, in the Divine garage!

—C. S. Lewis
