A Chronological Record of Events as they have
Transpired in the City and County since our last Issue.
Mrs. Heston Dead.
Mrs. Lola Heston died yesterday morning
at 10 oclock at her home in this city after a
lingering illness. She was a daughter of Kane Drake and
20 years of age. Her death was caused by consumption, the
same disease that caused the death of her little child a
few months ago. The funeral will occur today.
Mrs. Hutchinson Elopes.
Mrs. Dell Hutchinson, a Sunday school
teacher and a leader in society circles at Belleville,
eloped with a young man named John Burtrue on Tuesday.
She left her husband in the morning to go to their old

and eloped with him. She left two children.

Psychiatric Therapy Program Offered.
Senior Life Solutions at
McCune-Brooks Regional Hospital will offer an
intensive, comprehensive, multi-disciplinary
outpatient treatment program for persons 60 and
older. The program will focus on depression and
mental health disorders- problems that affect a
large segment of the community. In doing so the
hospital will be closing the current in-patient
Senior Life Solutions will
provide an alternative for patients not requiring
24 hour inpatient hospitalizations. This program
offers an option for patients who need more
intensive outpatient therapy and will support
inpatient area facilities by acting as a bridge
or step-down unit to those programs. Senior Life
Solutions will also satisfy the need for after
care options and possibly shorten psychiatric
hospital stays as well.
Bob Copeland, CEO said,
"We are very excited to offer Senior Life
Solutions as the first outpatient intensive
psychiatric facility in our area. We are
committed to providing the best service to our
patients; this program fits our patient-centered
care philosophy and will strengthen our
commitment to the psychiatric needs of our
community and the surrounding area."
Saw onea those shows
bout animals the other evenin. I
dont member what they were, but
these two little critters were facin
opposite directions diggin their
respective holes in the ground. Both of
em goin a mile a minute. The fact
that they were throwin all the dirt
outa their hole into the hole bein
scraped out by the other didnt seem ta
bother em any. They just kept their
nose down and kept movin the dirt back
and forth between em.
I suppose as obviously
futile a situation those two critters were
in, its sometimes a good idea to stick
your head up and take a look around. Could be
that by shiftin just a little, the work
might get done a little better, or at least
not hinder those makin progress.
This is some fact, but

THIS IS A HAMMER
By Samantha Mazzotta
Q: I saw a readers tip
last year where they took their area rugs out and
laid them on the snow to clean them. My question
is, can I do the same for installed carpet? --
Fred G., Rockingham, Vt.
A: While the snow-cleaning
method may or may not work for your installed
(wall-to-wall) carpet -- I havent tried the
original tip myself, by the way -- just getting
the carpet up and outside would be incredibly
difficult and time-consuming. So I do not
recommend trying this.
Instead, vacuum your carpet
very thoroughly and then rent a steam cleaner
from the home-improvement store (some larger
supermarkets also rent them) and steam clean the
If the carpet is so down-deep
dirty that it merely laughs at the efforts of a
steam cleaner, consider installing new carpet.
Very dirty carpet or carpet thats been
exposed to flooding or large liquid spills that
werent dried properly has a shorter life
span and can harbor molds and bacteria that a
steam cleaner may not get to. This creates an
unhealthy living environment.
Now, you might say at this
point, "Replacing the carpet will be
incredibly difficult and time-consuming, too.
Whats the difference?" Well, ask
yourself, is the amount of time and effort spent
pulling up the carpet, hauling it outside in the
snow and then reinstalling it a better investment
-- personally and financially -- than if what you
haul back inside is a new carpet (which will
increase the value of your home)?
Taking up a really old or dirty
carpet allows you to inspect the subfloor for
damage, make repairs and clean out accumulated
dirt that filtered down through the carpet.
Youll put fresh padding under the new
carpet, so it may feel like a completely
different floor when youre done.
