Longtime resident Louise Edelman turned 103 years young on Aug. 11 with cake, candles and friends abounding at Scheuer House. “Louise is a good person, she keeps up with the local news by reading your paper every week (of course it’s the best read in town) and without any glasses,” said fellow member and community activist Judd Fishler. “She’s very active, knows what’s going on and visits the center every day for a game of BINGO, lunch and dinner.” When Standing O asked the birthday girl what her secret to a long life was, she just shrugged her shoulders and said, “I don’t know, I live, I just live.”

Standing O wishes Louise another 100 years, we need all the fans we can get.
