For a brief, shining moment, they were proud to be pulmbers. Drove up to Johnson True Value Hard- ware. Parked next to one of Bassett's Mechanicals vans. And was asked by one of the Bassett employ- ees, "Did you notice our van?" They recently had the van lettered. Notice that one of the services offered by Bassett's Mechanicals is... "Pulmbing". I know - from personal experience - just how the guy must feel. It's happened to me more times than I'd like to remember. This photo is the only public record of that bright day of pride. The spelling has since been corrected. Times Photo "We Love Our Kids" Day "We Love Our Kids" Day was held at Zion Lutheran School Mt. Pulaski Thursday, February 11.

The coins were found in loca- tions as far afield as Texas, Venezuela and Maine. One stash was found buried in a mound in Round Rock, Texas. The mound is dated to approximately 800 A.D. In the town of Heav- ener, Okla., a bronze tetradrachm bearing the profile of Emperor Nero was found in 1976. The coin was originally struck in Antioch, Syria, in 63 A.D. crafts, face painting, tattoos, games and pizza for lunch. Thanks to the many parents and grandparents who helped make this a special day for the kids. A great time was had by all! The hill that became the site of the town of Mount Pulaski was discovered by a traveling medical practitioner, Dr. Alex- ander Shields, who passed on this information to Jabez Capps of Springfield in early, 1836. Capps, Dr. Barton Robinson of 175 th Mount Pulaski Anniversary Corner Hepquartocentennial or Hepquartennial Springfield along with George W. Turley of tim Lake Fork area soon afterwards proceeded to this mound and agreed that this would be the place for their new settlement- located 20 miles NE of Springfield (3 miles NE of Lake Fork and 2/ miles south of Salt Creek) in a vast raised region or plateau..." vast extent of the prairies or natural mead- ows." It was rich prairie land ideal for farming and raising cattle - with its "black mucky soil pen- etrating below yellow clay at a depth of 16 or 18 feet." Rising above this plateau would be the hill town of Mount Pulaski, "a city set upon a hill, whose light cannot be hid." Lawrence B. Stringer: Histor of Logan County Illinois, Pio- neer Publ.
