By Dee Ryan – Love is in the air! The news comes from Jake’s Way—that iconic lounge at the corner of Sims and Wayne Rd. Manager, Kyna Carlson, and Dave Jakeway became husband and wife on June16th. The wedding was in Las Vegas at the KISS Wedding Chapel. At a KISS ceremony, guitar picks are thrown instead of rose petals, and concert tickets are issued, taking the place of invitations. The bride, Kyna, wore a lovely mid-calf white gown with a lace back. Dave met his bride halfway down the aisle, and they walked together the rest of the way. That is their image of the future they’ll share—always meeting each other half way.
They could only be in Vegas for a short time—they have a business to run, but they hope to go back every 10 years to renew their vows.
I know you’ll all join me in wishing the newly married couple a long and happy life.

You can also have lunch at the 19th hole. There’ll be hot dogs, chips, pop, and candy.
So put on your best golf duds, bring your friends or family, and come play golf; a fun fundraiser that will help support our beautiful Wayne Public Library.
Alas! The Ice Cream Social, which is always an event in Wayne, won’t take place this year. We who enjoy the yummy treats see only the results of much hard work. This year time ran out before the preparations could be finalized. The Wayne Historical Society, who puts on the Ice Cream Social, hope that you won’t be too disappointed, and will enjoy the sweet event next year.
One of our newest neighbors on Washington St has done a beautiful job with his yard. He has Petunias, Begonias and Impatience, in hanging baskets and pots. All are in eye-popping colors.
Each time you pass, you say “wow.” Thanks to Tim Chambers, his wife, Tina, and children, Chase and Autumn—you’ve really dressed up and improved the look of our neighborhood.
Actually the ‘hood’ looks especially nice this year. Fran Calderon has many baskets of purple and white Petunias. Wild Bill has been bringing home pots of flowers, and the Rushlow’s yard is always attractive. The new neighbors that moved into Janet Sanderson’s house have done some very pretty planting, as have the folks who live at the corner of Washington and Clinton.
Thanks to Brian Smith and Mike Wicker of Wayne’s DPW. They did a great job of tree trimming on our street last month.
See you at the Michigan Avenue Cruise. It’s on Saturday, July 12th—look for us in a pale yellow Olds.
