LOCAL RESIDENT loaded her birdfeeder without the usual gathering of birds to her yard. After an hour she looked out and till not one bird could be seen. Then she saw the reason for her empty yard. A hawk was sitting on her neighbor's garage as if it was using her birdfeeder as bait. By afternoon the birds were back, the hawk was gone - having given up. LILLIE MAE JACKSON DUNCAN of Phoenix, Arizona wrote to the paper... "I enjoyed by Dec. 16 Times, as I knew some of the people mentioned! - ie - Boots & Keith Wilham's anniversary and others. I graduated Mr. Pulaski (Township) High School in 1941 and went to Chicago to work for a Chicago mail order company. When Pear Harbor was attacked I went to work for Bendix Aviation (war effort). I came to Mt. Pulaski often on the Green Diamond and got to know the conductor very well. He would come in the car and talk about Vinegar Hill and when we approached Mt. Pulaski he would call out "Vinegar Hill"... very nice man! I lived in Chicago until the war was over then back to Vine- gar Hill - Mt. Pulaski. I married in November 1945 to Howard Duncan of Latham. I was 90 this past June - and doing well. Thanks[or the memo- ries in your paper. Wisconsin is starting a program to use cheese brine to de-ice their roads. RUTH HENRICHS is passing along her thanks to the staff of Vonderlieth Living Center and the Mt. Pulaski Fire Depart- ment. At 4:05am recently the carbon monoxide alarm went off in her apartment and would not shut- off. A staff member of Vonder- lieth first checked the device and then called the fire depart- ment. Five fire department vol- unteers responded. Ruth says the "alarm went nuts I guess you'd say" and nothing was found that would have caused it to alert. Ruth added that every- one was great and responded quickly.
