the circuit court today against the Frisco railway for a
total of $3,512.79 in damages. He makes claims on eight
counts, basing his claims on the alleged damages
resulting to car load shipments of strawberries sent out
y him this spring.
Six of the cars went to Duluth, Min.,
one to Denver, Col., and one to Sioux Falls, S. D. The
defendant company is charged with delay in forwarding and
with careless handling of the shipment, resulting in the
deterioration of the fruit before delivery at its
destination and causing it to be sold at a discount.

The City Council Public Safety
Committee met Monday evening and heard from
citizen participant Sheila Crockford concerning
the speed limit in Chapel Estates on Reata Ave.
Crockford requested that the speed limit be
lowered due to the number of children in the
neighborhood. Police Chief Greg Dagnan told the
committee that he could have the Department
monitor the area and bring a recommendation to
the next committee meeting.
Fire Chief John Cooper
discussed bids for uniforms with the committee.
Bid requests were submitted to 5 different
companies, but only 2 bids were received, from
Sports World and from Varsity Designs and
Embroidery. Five items were included on each bid,
and the prices for each item were different on
each bid. Cooper recommended splitting the bids
and using the lowest bidder for each item. The
committee agreed and will forward to City Council
the recommendation to purchase 2 uniform items
from Sports World and 3 uniform items from
Varsity Designs and Embroidery. Cooper also noted
that due to high costs he would not be
recommending the purchase of a storage building
for hazardous materials.
Spent last weekend around a lot
a people, most of em I didnt know.
Lotta things goin on at a fairly fast pace
with little time for thinkin bout
what was goin on. Its strange how
interactin with people is so much different
than just watchin an even as a spectator or
watchin the tv.
The thing that is most
different is the day after. Bits and pieces of
the day before keep floatin to the top of
the mind. It seems when ya actually participate
in some activity, the brain pays more attention
and it makes a more lastin impression. I
suppose those who worry bout kids
playin so much with electronic games are
concerned with the lack of real life interaction
bein somehow shallow or lackin. After
all, nothin compares with a good game a
checkers with grandpa.
This is some fact, but mostly,

"Heres a wonderful
way to decorate a big, empty wall. I got a city
map of my husbands hometown and cut it into
equal pieces. I framed each piece in large frames
and reassembled them on the wall of his study. I
get compliments all the time, and he uses the map
as a prop when telling our sons stories of when
he was growing up." -- S.S. in Colorado
Have you ever broken a light
bulb while trying to remove it? Heres an
easy way to remove the end of the bulb without
cutting yourself. Grab a regular white potato and
cut it in half. Wipe any excess moisture and jam
it into the broken glass of the remnants. Then
twist. It really works!
A fun end-of-the-summer tip:
"My kids love to play outdoors in the water.
We fill a small plastic pool and splash about,
but we upped the fun a few weeks ago by accident.
I had two empty, clean honey bear containers
(plastic jars shaped like bears, with a pointy
spout screw-on cap) in the recycling, and the
kids found them, filled them with water, and
squirted away. They are fairly easy for even the
young one to unscrew and refill, so they had lots
of fun squirting each other, the house,
etc." -- I.D. in Maine
Turn two sheets into a comfy
duvet cover by stitching on three sides, then
adding hook-and-loop tape or buttons to the
fourth side. Stuff with a comforter and enjoy.
