Suit Against Sam
Miss Edith Kerr Charges
that his Delivery Teams Trespass on her Lots.
Suit was filed in police
court yesterday against Sam Richardson charging him with
trespass. The complaining witness is Miss Edith Kerr, who
alleges that the defendant allows his delivery horses to
stand without being hitched and that they often strayed
across the street and grazed on her lot and also that the
team was often driven across part of her lot in turning
around. The trial of the case was to have come up this
morning but it was postponed until tomorrow morning.

Bid for Repair.
The Public Services Committee
approved a bid for the repair of the Central Park
Fountain by Concrete Services Corporation of
Tulsa in the amount of $50,765.50.
The committee discussed
concerns about the bid being higher than the
approximate $45,000 budgeted for the repairs.
Parks Director Alan Bull told the committee that
Jason Ekhart of Sprenkle and Associates was
working with Concrete Services to see if there
were any costs that could be cut. Additionally
the committee discussed the possibility of
seeking private funding to span the difference.
City Administrator Tom Short recommended looking
to the Council contingency fund for supplemental
resources. The motion will be brought before
Council at the next meeting and will have an
emergency request added to get the work started
by July 15 if possible.
Vehicle Still Missing.
Police Department is still searching for the
white 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass with red interior
and license plate number 815-YAL. The car is
sought in connection with the double homicide of
Marvin and Peggy Steverson. Police Dept:
I got ta wonderin why old songs on the
radio didnt sound quite the same as I
remembered. Seemed there was just more goin
on than there used ta be.
unhooked all speakers cept the one on the
dash. Tuned in to the local AM station and there
it was. Real old time music.
The fact is the music was
always there, ya just couldnt hear it on a
mono radio with a single speaker.
Now, I dont suppose
anyone would make an honest attempt to argue that
hearin music in that limited manner is
"better" than with full acoustic
surround sound technology, but to me, it is more
pleasurable for certain types of music.
Course, I was weaned
hearin scratchy 78s of Sousa marches
played with a worn out needle. No wonder Im
always a little out of step.
This is some fact, but mostly,

Here's A Tip
By JoAnn Derson
"When applying sunscreen on
the kids, I use a heavy-duty paper towel to help
me out. I put a generous amount on a paper towel
(the good, solid kind, like Bounty or Viva) and
spread it around good. Then I just wipe the kids
everywhere. It helps to use the towel, because it
seems to go on more evenly. For some reason, this
does not work with a washcloth." D.D.
Freshen clothing that
would normally need to be dry-cleaned by hanging
it over a bathtub filled halfway with hot water,
to which you have added 2 cups of plain vinegar.
As a bonus, it will also freshen your bathroom.
an item, rather than wringing it out, place it
between two towels and just run a rolling pin
over the top." A.D. in New York
Never add flour or
cornstarch directly to a soup or broth for gravy.
Dissolve it in a few tablespoons of water first
and add gradually. You wont get the lumps.
One Sweet Tip from Mrs.
E.M. in Pennsylvania: To "shuck"
strawberries, use a nonflexible drinking straw.
Place one end of the straw on the bottom of a
strawberry. Push up gently from the bottom,
through the strawberry, and the stem and top will
come off with no problem.
