Free is good, but fee is not. We all love free stuff despite if we need them as long as theyíre free. I think this is just a human nature way of thinking.

The Forester Herald Forester, The Simple Times
Though we have no way of knowing where all the people went when the town "moved away", we never stop trying to stay in touch with as many as possible, and hoping they will return to the reunion every year where we are forever saying "Oh look who's here" and "so glad to see you", with laughter and hugs all around.

The Forester Herald Forester, The Simple Times
The longer I live and watch how he world changes, (called progress), the more I look back on our simple, but wonderful, life at Forester. We were moving, but taking our time, just glad to get up and start each new day. Our school had eight grades and we did not want to miss a day of learning and playing games together. The classroom were not crowded so the teachers had no problem with th basics and the students worked to see who could get the best grades.
