"Serving, Farmers & Land Owners in Logan & Menard Counties." Local farmer commented that this was quite a year. He put his crop in, in the mud and took the crop out of the mud. Other than that, a good crop. Along 121, there was a stand of corn after New Year's Day. The day of the predicted 4 - 6 inch snow, the City of Mt. Pulaski was clearing snow off the square to lessen the expected load that was warned to greet the city that night. The weather forecast, unfortu- nately, was correct. Postmaster Brenda Bacon received the comment about the approaching snow with the reply, "Up to six inches? Every- body who comes in, ups the prediction." Brenda added, "I think I'll just stick a sign on the counter that says 'I don't want to hear about the snow'". Gerald Milner, retired long haul trucker, explained 'lake effect snow' He said it is a dif- ferent type of snow. It comes down so heavy that it 'whites out' everything. You can't see in front of you and you can't see the edge of the road. Glen added that Snow Shoe, Penn- sylvania has the right name. When snow comes down in the Snow Shoe area, it really comes down. It was a below zero morning and the only other person walk- ing the square at that point in time was Sonny Aylesworth. It was a brief greeting and talk as we continued our respec- tive treks. Looks like Bob Metz's dog was right about it being a cold winter. Dang. Bob's buddy had grown a noticeably thick coat of fur this fall. Is the year two thousand ten or is it twenty-ten? Wanda Dumire voted for two thousand ten. When asked, Wanda said she'd not given it any thought, but twenty-ten sounded old- fashioned. Cindy Babbs dropped a line with her subscription payment. Cindy wrote "I haven't lived in Mt. Pulaski for over 30-years, but continue to renew my Mt. Pulaski Times subscription because I enjoy reading the paper from the front page to the last page. Keep on print- ing the Times." Many, many years ago, a friend commented that I (your editor) seemed to have way too much fun pub- lishing the paper.., and that just wasn't right. But I'm still having fun and still publish- ing. Local homeowner discovered what was used for insulation a century ago. While remodeling a room. he was taking down the ceiling when a lot of sand came down. He said it was like rain. He will now. cautiously, take the walls down to the studs.
