A laboring man of this city is quoted
as having said that he would oppose the library
proposition next Tuesday because the library would be
open only in the day time and would not therefore benefit
men who work ten hours per day as this man does.
His position is a mistaken one,
however. In conversation with Mayor Chaffee today a
reporter was assured that he and his associates who have
the appointing of the board of control will see that men
are put in charge who will keep the library open each
evening till at least 9 or 9:30 oclock.
The man who was proposing his
opposition as related above is taxed on an assessed
valuation of $90. His library tax would therefore be 9
cents per year.

Dear Al & Kelly:
I thought our home needed to be
painted and had started looking for painting
contractors. I was lucky enough to talk to a nice
contractor who suggested that we try a power
washer first. We rented a rig and did the work
ourselves and saved a bundle. It turned out that
our home was just really dirty and didnt
need to be repainted after all. Ive saved
this gentlemans number and plan to use him
when it is time for a new paint job. Its
nice to know there are still some honest and
helpful people around. - S.T.
I do a lot of painting in my
spare time. I really enjoy it and have developed
quite a flair. I like to use stencils and even do
murals occasionally. Before I use a brush, I
clean it really well with a brush cleaner and let
it dry. Than I brush it back and forth to get rid
of any loose bristles. I promise the extra time
is worth it. - C. O.
Taking something apart to fix

getting all the pieces back together, and in the
right order. A muffin pan can make the reassembly
As you take the object apart,
put each piece into a separate muffin cup. Number
the cups if you need to. If you dont have a
spare muffin pan or are afraid of ruining a good
one, you can buy inexpensive, disposable muffin
pans at a grocery store.
Better organization wont
necessarily help you get the item running again,
but at least youll be able to keep track of
your parts, and thats one less thing to
