But right now we have to deal with the building of the site. For now it’s free so keep the faith and keep checking in on us. I’m sure in time it will get bigger and better. So to the stagehands and us rockers its time we build our world wide stage so hang in there readers, stars, and rock stars. Oh yea the Mrs. says Hello it should be updated every week hey hand me that saw.
Readers, Stars, and Rock
stars. We’ve got our stage set up now our stagehands
just got done with all of the wiring and spotlights
are ready to go. Let’s give our stagehands a monster
round of applause for setting us up in our new
Now that many of you stars haven’t found us yet in time we know you will. So log onto www.sweetsview.com in the address bar NOT the search engine box. That’s how you get to us.
Now it’s time to turn on our spotlights. No one deserves it more than our stagehands who have worked 24/7 getting us ready for the show we call “Sweetsview”. So turn them bad boys on (the spotlights) Awesome!
We checked with legal and yes we can now update you on our postcards. As we have to catch up as you know we got up to 492 postcards from around the world (no joke). The 493 postcard that we have in has a picture of a sandy beach that’s at Tawas Bay, Michigan. On the back it read “back in Michigan this weekend family reunion Saturday. Then east Tawas to visit my old est. found I am to be grandfather again. Heading south Monday.” Ray Brooks. Why congrats Ray who is one of just many of our good friends. Thanks Ray for our 493 postcard.
The 494 postcard we got in has an awesome picture of the skyline of Toronto, Canada. I didn’t know it was that big! This postcard read,” Hi Everyone, I’m in Toronto having a great time. Been meeting people from all over the world. There are 7 million people living in Toronto. Half of them were not born in Canada. Tell everyone I said “Hey”. Mike Green. Thank you Mike Green for our 494 postcard. Well everyone you can tell me and the Press-Dispatch has gone our own way. Due to our different view on things. And that’s fine but said in a way you all know me it was only a matter of time before we outgrew our stage. But like in life things change.
you can still send your postcards to sweetsview Winslow, IN 47598 and we will post them on sweetsview.com Rock on good people.
While I’m making my way across the parking lot towards our new arena I have several thoughts going through my mind, mainly the readers we left behind by leaving the paper and it does bother me! Plus a case of, would you believe this, a touch of nerves. I guess that’s to be expected when you start something new! Plus the whole world can now read your words.
So after taking a real deep breath it’s time we all get backstage and yes readers, stars, and rockstars we have got lots of room for all of you! Our stagehands are busy double checking things over making sure things are up and running. We got a little time here we are so shocked and glad that you all stopped by to check out sweetsview.
Things are ready to rock as our stagehands tell us, I know it’s time we make our way towards the stage but first we must flip on the spotlights. This week’s turn goes to all of you who check out sweetsview. We need your help! What with? Spreading the word about sweetsview. I’m wondering just how big we can make this thing with your help? So please throw on our spotlights. “Awesome Job!”
Now it’s time to take our new stage would please shine the spotlights on to the postcards. The 495 postcard that was sent our way has a picture of Toronto, Canada at nighttime with the city all lit up with buildings lit up and search light shining up in the sky. It is so cool looking. The card reads,” They light up the city of Toronto like this every night. I sit out on our roof top patio in the town house that we are staying in and look at this view every night. Went to Niagara falls yesterday it was awesome!” Mike Green What a view you must of enjoyed. I’m sure it’s something you won’t forget. Thank you for sharing it with us and for sending us our 495 postcard.
Our 496 postcard also comes from Toronto, Canada. This one has a picture of the city of Toronto from a bird’s eye view at daytime. Its wild how big Toronto is. On the back of this one reads,” Hi everyone, coming home tomorrow after 10 days in Toronto. Had lots of fun but it will be good to be back home in Indiana. Tell everyone HI.” Mike Green Mike, have a safe trip home and thank you for showing us Toronto and for sending us our 496 postcard.
The 497 postcard has a picture of the state fair gift shop which has big blue ribbons and pigs on the roof of the building with 2010 Indiana State Fair. Now that just funny! This postcard reads,” Sweets, Greeting’s from the Indiana State Fair. The year of the pigs 2010 is the theme this year. You can see the pigs on the roof in the picture of the Gift Ship. Our son Derek plays the piano at the Pioneer building so we spent a lot of time listening to his music.” Marvin and Sue Ellen Barton, Petersburg, IN. That must lf been so nice to see and hear your son Derek playing at the Indiana State Fair you had to be so proud. Thank you for sharing your postcard and the 497 one.
To send postcards to us the address is sweetsview Winslow, IN 47598 and we will share them with the world.
Fire up those spotlights on to Winslow, IN. Winslow is the place you want to be this Saturday September 18th for the Winslow Community Festival. It has a ton of stuff going on all day and even into the night. It starts with breakfast at the Riverside Park hosted by the Winslow Lions Club and that where the Poor Man’s Car Show will be. Then at 8:00am things start going on with the Flea Market on Main St. just to start. The Poor Man’s Car Show starts at 9:00am at the Riverside Park, there will be music uptown and we know you want to be in or watch the Light Up Winslow Parade, which starts around dark. We will be all over the place having fun and we want you to join in on the Winslow Community Festival.
Well readers, starts, and rockstars I have to go to help out with the festival. See you in Winslow, IN for it is our time to shine!
September 22 2010
I hope you enjoyed last week’s show and already it is time for the next little rock show we call sweetsview. Hope you all had a good week. If so, cool, if not, don’t worry, we got another shot at it hopefully again.
Now it’s time we trip to our backstage area and get a drink and a seat before we get rocking. With our stagehands busy with prepping our stage and making things already for us to rock out. “Yo stagehands! Kick on those fans, would you please?” Man that water tasted good. Alright, hope you are ready, for here comes our stagehands to take us towards the stage.
We get to kick on those spotlights and this week’s turn goes to the Winslow Lions Club and the rest of the groups who got the Winslow Community Festival and, of course, the world famous Light Up Winslow Parade, and man did that rock (the Parade). So the Winslow Lions Club and the rest of the groups would you please kick on our spotlight? “Awesome! Great Job!” After all of that would you please take our stage? Oh yes, that’s what I’m talking about.
Please put our spotlights to our postcards. Our 498 postcard has a picture of what looks like your somewhat normal view of mountains with trees. Just here and there, it’s cool looking. Here is some 411: “Craters of the moon is a National Monument located near the towns of Carey and Area on highway 93 (east of Twins Falls and Sun Valley, Idaho). Spring and the month of June are good times to visit this unique area.” The rest of the postcard read,” Hi Sweets, I am a beginning rock climber and I climb with people from Moscow, Russia who survived the breakup of the former Soviet Union.” Janie Tormohlen. Why a beginning rocker that’s cool, and thank you for our 498 postcard.
Ok, our 499 postcard we got in came to us from Hollywood Beach, Florida. On the front of this one has a picture of the beach with its white sand its blue oceans with its palm trees and with people enjoying all of it. So we flip the Hollywood postcard over and it read, “Hello from South Florida!” BUT here is the kicker no one put their name on the postcard. “Hey what's the matter are you shy?” So to whoever sent us our 499 postcard Thank You.
Now did we get to 500 postcards? I know but I’m not going to tell ya, it’s called a “tease”. So you will have to log on next week and find out. Got a post card you want to send? It will get to us by mailing it to sweetsview Winslow, in 47598.
Now if you missed the Winslow Community Festival what a shame for it was a blast. It had everything from breakfast at Riverside Park which was great too! A woman chain sawed who cut a beaver out of a tree, it was fun to watch. To a small yard sale to the Pike County Casting Contest, Kiddie train ride and fun for all. Center Street was busy with the inflatables to game and good for all, it was kind of crazy all day, and of course, everybody was everywhere.
Then it was time for the Light up Winslow Parade. I got to do both, watch it and be in it. In case you didn’t know way back when I thought up this parade, who know it would now last 5 years and keep growing. I can say I have seen some cool things in it and this one didn’t disappoint us either. It had the Winslow Lions Club Kiddies Train glowing and the engineer was also a glow. It was so cute! It had bike of all types from 20inch to motorcycles all of them a glow. And it even had a 3 tier birthday cake with 800 to 1,000 lights on it, Muren Church of God was letting everyone know they are about to celebrate their 100 years of being a church. You had to see it for words, I just don’t have them to describe. It was so good it took First place.
Who won the Poor Man’s Car Show? That would be Mindy Adcock with her 1953 Pontiac Fire Chief. It was cool and if she hits her horn you will know it. Yes, I didn’t have anything in it for like the first time ever!
So our current State Rep. Mark Messmer asked me to help him out, you know I will for he has always been there for us and Winslow for all of the years in Winslow I have never seen any other State Rep work that hard for Winslow and I know him on more than just a political thing. So now that I can do what I want to do I can say it would be most wise to vote for the man for we don’t want to lose contact in the statehouse. It just makes good good sense.
It was way awesome what the Outfitters Station put in the Parade, it was Chris Ashby and his buddy who plays the bass. They went rocking out bid time and yes rockers it was “loud and proud rock.” Thank you guys it was too cool.
I got a question have you helped? What with? That would be spreading the word about www.sweetsview.com If not; we could sure use your help. If so, you rock and it will keep getting better and we keep updating things. So rock on and we will rock with you next week so “Rock On.”

September 30 2010
What a change with the weather. For now, its okay, but we all know what’s coming! So how about we go to our backstage area and get ready to rock this thing. While I’ve got all of you here, how about spreading the word about sweetsview.com? We could use the help; we will tank you in advance! What do you think about our website and our worldwide stage? Here is a thought, if you have a computer, print a copy of sweetsview and pass it out for the ones who don’t have a computer.
“What? Are we ready?” ask our stagehands. Why sure we are! Let’s do this and rock it out! As we make our way to the spotlight the one who gets to turn them on this week is…All of you who hit the web and found sweetsview.com. We’re glad you found us and don’t be shy go ahead and take the stage first, we don’t mind. Sometimes I just forget that we are on a bigger stage now and I have to now say, “Put those spotlights on to Winslow! That would be Winslow, Indiana not Arizona. Just to clear things up, see what happens when you’re stuck in one way of thinking? Where was I? Oh, yeah, would you please put those spotlights on to our postcard stars and see who sent us a postcard.
Big Time Drum Roll as we hit our 500th postcard. That is right rockers the formerly Sweetscolumn and sweetsview has hit 500 postcards! Taa-daa! That’s just way to cool. On the front of our 500th postcard has a picture from out of the past like from the 40’s era. It has a waitress holding some hot food with the front reading, “Hominy Grill” “Grits are good for you!” “Breakfast, lunch, and dinner.” The back of our 500th postcard reads,” Howdy ya’ll! I’m here in the low country, Charleston, South Carolina and just in from Savannah. The shrimp and grits at this place are too (2) spiritual encounter. Take care! Your loyal reader, Allen.”
What’s up Allen and thank you for sending us our 500th postcard and to all of the other 499 postcards you all rock!
The 501st postcard that was sent our way came to us from Philadelphia, “The city of brotherly love” on the front of our 501st postcard shows us the Philadelphia skyline along with a water fountain with the word love that was famous from back in the day. The back of our 501st postcard read, “Hi, Sweets! Sending some brotherly love to Norm. Have not seen him in the paper recently hope he is not sick.” Nelson and Wormey.
Hey Nelson and Wormey, I’m doing okay for now. Anyway no bugs like the most things in life a little change blew in across the stage and that’s okay for change is good, we think, plus now I’m free to write like I want to without the paper cutting most things I write. So, I or should I say we hit the worldwide stage and we’re hoping to rock this all big time and everything. Sending some brotherly love right back to you, Nelson and Wormey, and thank you for our 501st postcard.
You can send us postcards by snail mail to sweetsview Winslow, IN 47598. And we’ll share them with our peeps. Could you shine those spotlights onto Winslow, IN and not AZ? See even I have to somewhat change my way of thinking to expand our stage. I know it will take time but I’m sure our readers, stars, and rockstars will grow to even bigger numbers than we were dealing with. Who knows how big it could get?!
Summer 2010 has come and gone and what a hot summer it was. You know it’s kind of strange to making change, but I feel and know it’s for the best at least for now. And the Mrs. Is doing a good job of rocking the paper. I guess I got too wild or should I say I do have a mind.
Speaking of rocking my daughter is doing a great job at that as she is doing all of the typing for me. Now to say, way to rock Laura H.. And our secret computer tech, with his mad computer skills also rocks for he put the changes to the web site. That’s just way too cool!
Have you ever went running with the Indians? Last Friday I got to do just that at the 28th Annual Native American days that was held at Angel Mounds Indiana State Museum. If you have never checked it out I can say its well worth the time and worth the road trip. They had everything there at this past event from storytelling to a dancing circle and arrowhead making to Indian games they played in the past to test their skills. All in all it was cool. So some day if you can make the time it is worth checking out Angel Mounds.
You know I’ve learned something that’s kind of strange that is to me anyway, our local libraries won’t let you log onto facebook. As they say it is a chat room. But yet all of the other libraries in all of the counties around Pike County, you can log onto facebook. Here is the even bigger kicker. The Pike County libraries are building a million dollar library in Petersburg. This brings up a point here in Pike County, IN they will build a million dollar library but yet won’t step into the 21st century by allowing you to log onto facebook. Plus how will this affect the smaller libraries in Pike County? Does anyone see the writing on the wall or is it just me?
Now to the Mrs. For the birthdays and anniversaries. Hello all and here are the birthdays in the week of September 29th to October 9th. Angie Schwengel September 29.
