Buys an Interest - Retail Department to be Closed Out.
S. B. Griswold is to retire from the
retail grocery business. A deal was closed last night,
whereby Mr. James J. Abell of Nevada purchased a half

A farmer I used ta work for
while I was in high school always told me that if
ya see turtles on the road it means its
gonna rain. Said they could sense the comin
weather and headed for higher ground. I never was
convinced completely, but I always try to
remember when I see the creatures ploddin
on the roadways.
I always look in the rearview
mirror when I pass over turtles with the car.
Some pull their head in and just wait, other just
keep wigglin along like nothin
happened. I cant imagine what a turtle must
be thinkin when vehicle whizzes over
em. Maybe they figure it was one a those
quick thunder storms movin through, or a
giant crash of thunder. Youd think the hot
pavement would stick to their little feet as long
as they take ta get on the other side. Maybe
theyre just hopin for rain.
This is some fact, but mostly,

Consumers often turn to
no-calorie diet products because of their desire
to be healthy especially in regard to obesity and
weight management. The aspartame industry
promises consumers a reduction in calories
without having to make a drastic change in diet.
With this I see two very
important points to consider:
1. There is no special potion,
pill, or drink that will cause you to lose weight
and be healthy. We must have a lifestyle of
healthy eating, exercise, and other areas of
balance for health to be obtained.
2. Aspartame, commonly known as
NutraSweet, is one of the most toxic substances
on the market and is so often harmful to human
This chemical is made up, in
part, of methanol which is quickly and easily
absorbed through the membranes in the mouth and
easily crosses the blood-brain barrier. The
methanol in aspartame breaks down to formic acid
and formaldehyde in the body, both of which are
toxic. The most well-known problems with methanol
poisoning are those affecting vision.
Other common symptoms include,
memory loss, seizures, sleep problems, muscle
weakness, joint pain, hives, brain tumors,
depression, and headaches.
Aspartame is commonly found in
diet soft drinks, breath mints, chewing gum,
childrens pain relievers, and yogurt.
