I read with much interest about the large old elm tree cut down in Yarmouth last month. What caught my eye and curiosity is this: the year 1816 — the one with no summer. I heard a little about it years ago from some old-timers from Weld, but nothing very clear. It would be nice if someone could come up with more information to clear it up. Where did the volcanic activity happen, etc.

I think that would be a better story (and good history) than those Barbie dolls in bikinis on snowmobiles (Sun Journal, Feb. 1).

Someone should teach those young women cooking and other womanly things, rather than them running around half-naked for the men to lust after and nearly forget they have a wife and children at home.
