The trick with courage is realizing that it isn't so much about overcoming fear, as it is about not settling for less. And then, it comes as effortlessly as a midsummer's night breeze. Whhhoooooosh, feel it.

Riddle: Land of the Liars - You are lost in a land of the honest and dishonest. The honest people can only tell the truth, and the dishonest people can only lie. You need to ask for directions, so you approach a group of three people and ask if they are honest. The first man says, "Two of us are honest," and the second man says, "Actually only one of us is honest." The third man says, "That last man who spoke is honest." How many are honest and which ones? Answer below.

The Rochester Recreation Committee presents its annual summer concert series on the park in Rochester village on Sunday evenings at 6:30 pm. On July 10 the South Royalton Town Band will return to the bandstand under the direction of Dick Ellis, who has led this band for 63 years. Dick used to direct the Rochester Town band back in the 1950's. Rochester trumpet player Louis Donnet is a longtime member of the band. The Rochester Recreation Committee encourages you to bring your dancing shoes, a lawn chair or blanket, and a picnic basket packed with your favorites.

The Federated Church of Rochester and the Women's Alliance had a terrific day at their Spring Sale with $944 in sales. The ladies are now looking for some able-bodied persons who have the time and interest to help sort the gently worn clothing. Please call Janice McCann at 767-3667 or Estelle Holmquist at 767-4045. The church and community would like to thank Estelle Holmquist and Nance Parrish for providing beautiful and caring receptions following funeral services. Estelle and Nance are retiring from this invaluable service and much appreciation is extended. Becky Donnet is now the new contact for the Women's Alliance funeral receptions. If your family or if you know of a family in need of a funeral reception, please contact Becky at 767-3098 or the church office at 767-3012. You can also contact Reverend Gregory Holman at 767-3332.

The Green Mountain Club has released its first Killington Area Hiking Trail Map. These maps are part of a waterproof series that highlights major areas of interest around the state. These maps are available through the club of at select local businesses. For more information contact the club at 802-244-7037. The Green Mountain Club also produces maps of the entire Long Trail and Day Hiker's Guides.

Riddle solution: None are honest. For the third man to be honest would mean the second and third are honest, which contradicts what the second man said. Therefore they are both lying. If both are lying, there cannot be two that are honest, meaning that the first man is also lying.
