16 City Finances By Mike LaMa City Treasurer Jim Sutton reported at the Jan. Committee meeting that the city had total deposits since his last report of $40,594.55. Money owed by the state is slowly catching up. Total state funds owed and paid to the city totaled $12,692.94. State payments are still running "months behind". The city's Motor Fuel tax fund now stands at $36,933.59. Mt. Pulaski Times By Mike Lakin It was brought up at the Jan. City Council Committee Meeting that the city formerly plowed public sidewalks in town. Question was, could the city do this now? February 5, 2011 Plow Sidewalks? The service was provided years ago, but complaints on how the sidewalks were plowed became a problem. Also, the city lacks the per- sonnel to do the work now. Mayor Jim Fuhrer pointed out that the three city employees have a lot of regular work and adding this to their work schedule is not going to happen. Tax time is a good time to look at IRAs It's not too late to open a new IRA or contribute to the one you have BEFORE you file your taxes. See a COUNTRY Financial representative to find out more.

American engineers heard about the gun and were eager to test it on windshields of new high-speed trains. Arrangements were made, and a gun was sent to the American engineers• When the gun was fired, the engineers stood shocked as the chicken hurled out of the barrel, crashed into the shatterproof shield, smashed it to smithereens, blasted through the control con- sole, snapped th engineer's back- rest in two and embedded itself in the back wall of the cabin like an arrow shot from a bow. The horrified Yanks sent Rolls Royce the disastrous resuJts of the experiment, along with the designs of the windshield and begged the British scientists for suggestions. Rolls Royce responded with a one-line memo: "Defrost chicken." www sblincoln com
