Dorotha Stiles, who lives at the Village was taken by ambulance Monday morning to a local hospital. According to an unconfirmed report she has a broken hip and an injured shoulder. Dorotha and her family were long-time Byng residents and both their sons were graduates of Byng High School. Dorotha has been a very active resident, and most agree that she’s one of, if not the best, cook in the Village.
Another Byng resident is now calling the Village his home. Richard Kirby, one of my former students for at least six of his 12 years of school, moved in last month. He went directly into the Navy after high school and served 20 years. He received medical disability as the result of a stroke. He appears to be in good physical condition and promises he’ll teach some of us to play Mexican dominoes.
