Spring St. - Mt. Pulaski 217-414-2271 e-mail - Topper Red Halters: On the Go... On a blustery cold Tuesday evening, Janu- ary 17th, eight hale and hearty Topper Red Hat- ters descended upon Pizza Man for their first dinner meeting of the New Year. Pizza Man's large array of pizzas, pastas, and sandwiches pleased everybody and the food was quickly and courteously served to the Red Hatter diners. I can't comprehend anything that grows an appetite faster than an evening's outing on a chilly calorie-buming winter's evening. Patsy Garlits was host- ess and presented each person a small hinged trinket box fried with small candies. Boots Wilham enjoy- edherself as a special guest of Pat Strau- mann's. After a brief meeting and pleasant conver- sation, we adjourned early to dash home to a cozy lap robe, hot chocolate, and perhaps that nice peaceful feeling that comes with a warm, glowing fireplace. Our February meet- ing will be held at the Garden restaurant, near Millikin University, in Decatur, on Tuesday, February 21 at Noon. If you need a ride, call a Red Hat member. Guests are welcome if they call either co-host- ess a couple days prior to the 21st to confirm reservations. Co-hostesses are Phyl- lis Hawk, 792-5225, or Madonna Boyle, 674- 3709. They need a call from each Red Hat member too. Come join us for a couple hours of friendly conversation, a delicious meal, and a break from the usual activities of a regular day. You'll be glad you did. Submitted by - Pat Straumann 14 Notice Are you registered to Vote? Have you moved or changed your address? Have you recently been married and changed your name?

POlice Report By Mike Lakin Someone has issues and is handling it very poorly. Officer Kyle Veech was called to a Mt. Pulaski resident. A boyfriend was wanted out, but he wanted the "IV. The parties were parted. The "IV remained where it was. The boyfriend went to Springfield. Officer Veech was recalled to the residence. The boyfriend was continuously texting and wanted that TV. Officer Veech called the boyfriend and told him to halt his texting and calling. The problem ratcheted up when he told Officer Veech he was in a different county now and there wasn't anything Mt.
