How about Harold Peary, bet-ter known as "The Great Gilder-sleeve", the pompous next-door neighbor who ran a girdle factory then later moved to Summerfield and became the Water Commis-sioner. And then there was "The Old-Timer" played by Bill Thomp-son; a hard-of-hearing senior citi-zen with a penchant for distorting jokes, prefacing each one by saying "That ain't the way I heared it!"; al-ways referring to Fibber as "John-ny" and Molly as "Daughter". My personal favorite was Gale Gor-don who played both Mayor La-Trivia and Foggy Williams, a local weatherman and next-door neigh-bor. Did you know that he also played "Flash Gordon" on the ra-dio?

Radon is an odorless, color-less, radioactive gas that results from the natural decay of urani-um. Uranium is found in rock, soil, and water. Radon typically moves up through the ground into your home through the foundation. Radon gas decays into radioactive particles that get trapped in the lungs. They can lead to lung cancer over the course of a lifetime. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Nearly 46% of all homes in Colorado may have elevated levels. The only way to know is to test and takes only a few minutes of your time to set up. The Weld County Depart-ment of Public Health and En-vironment, 1555 N. 17th Ave. Greeley, has free short-term radon kits available, one per household, while supplies last Monday-Friday, 8-5pm.
