The City Council
Budget Ways and Means Committee met Monday
evening in a regular session. The committee
approved a motion to recommend to Council the
appropriation of $16,250 for the purpose of
redesigning a pump system for excess water at the
intersection of Grand and Centennial.
Tom Short and Public Works Committee Chairman Dan
Rife explained to the Committee that the current
pump located at the intersection has broken, and
has been estimated to cost $10,000 for its
repair. Sprenkle and Associates, with whom the
City contracts for engineering, has proposed the
redesigning of the pump system, to allow for two
smaller pumps to replace the larger single pump
that is currently in that location.
The dual pump
system, according to Rife, would be designed on a
cascading system, wherein one pump would be
utilized at a certain water level, and both pumps
when the water level is increased.
Bids for the
purchase and installation of this new system were
submitted for by the Public Works Department, but
not all of the bids have been received. The
committee is scheduled to award the bid when all
of the bids are received, by the next Public
Works Committee meeting, to be held October 21.
The committee approved a motion to appropriate
the necessary funding prior to the bid being
awarded, so that the new pumps may be purchased
as quickly as possible. The specific amount of
appropriation will be finalized when the bid is
The one good thing bout holidays like
Columbus Day is that they remind us that the
world does not revolve around our own schedule.
Its a humbling experience to prepare for
the daily routine of makin it to the bank,
a stop by the Courthouse, and waitin on the
mail, just to finally realize that on that
particular day, none a that is gonna happen.
Even after I pulled on the bank
door and walked up the steps to the Courthouse, I
still checked and worried that somethin had
happened to the mail carrier. It was neigh on to
2 oclock fore I finally accepted the
fact that there would be no mail delivery.
There was a quick glimpse of
hope that somehow Columbus Day could be used as a
"catch up" day. That idea was soon left
in the pile of outgoin mail that would
still be a day late to its destination.
This is some fact, but mostly,

like me and wear glasses and get your hair
colored, try this wonderful tip. My hairdresser
keeps a container full of glove fingers in her
drawer. She cuts the fingers off the plastic
gloves after the pair of gloves gets worn. I slip
one over each stem of my glasses, and they are
protected while the color is on my hair. I can
put them on without worrying about the chemicals
messing with the plastic, and I just slip them
off when my hair is ready to be rinsed." --

"I line my cookie
sheets with aluminum foil. A lot of people do.
But as soon as I have made a batch of cookies, I
wipe it clean with a damp paper towel. Then I can
set it aside to cool while another batch is
cooking. I can do many batches with one lining of
foil, and this saves me money." -- V.K. in

filters to clean windows and mirrors. They are

"My husband is hard
on buttons. So, I sew the waist buttons on his
pants with dental floss. A touch of shoe polish
helps the white to blend in, and its as

floss." -- U.S. in Michigan

chalk drawings, and when they have finished a
