A little boy was waiting for his mother to come out of the grocery store. As he waited, he was approached by a man who asked, "Son, can you tell me where the Post Office is?"
The little boy replied, "Sure! Just go straight down this street a couple of blocks and turn to your right."
The man thanked the boy kindly and said, "Im the new pastor in town. Id like for you to come to church on Sunday. Ill show you how to get to Heaven."
The little boy replied with a chuckle. "Awww, come on. You dont even know the way to the Post Office."
Is your dog or your husband your best friend? To find out, put them in the trunk of your car and drive around for a while. Stop. Open the trunk and see which one is the happiest to see you.
Where a Thoroughfare is to be Made of a Mere Path.
Fifth street from Grant to Lyon is to be made into a thoroughfare, something it has not been these many years. Work was begun on the improvement yesterday, under the supervision of street commissioner Landrum.
A new stone culvert is now being built diagonally across Fifth street at the corner of Main street. This will throw the water to the south side of the street, and the stone culvert covering along the Luke property will come up. A surface gutter will go down instead. The city will build the stone walls of a culvert along the south side of Fifth from Main to Lyon street and Judge Kerr will cover it over with slab stones as a sidewalk along his property. The culvert will also be extended across Fifth at Lyon, thus obviating a dangerous ditch there. Later the stone culvert will be extended east form main to Grant street on the south side of Fifth.
