We've all been enjoying the good meals here at the Doak during the past week, and we appreciate all that the cooks have done for us. We also have state inspectors in visiting the Doak this week.
Joke of the week
An old man was heckling the mayor at a town meeting. Finally, the mayor told the heckler, "Sir, please stand up and tell the audience what you have ever done for the good of the city."
"Well Mr. Mayor," the man said loudly, "I voted against you in the last election."
