"Sorry" I've been a shut-in for a few days and sorry I missed some good programs -- the reading of Lincoln's Farewell Address, Donna Koehler's students' presentation of The Tombstone Trail, and Chris Vallillo music from the Lincoln's years. I know I would have enjoyed all these performances. I did get a bite of Mrs. Lincoln's delicious cake. I do plan to attend some of the other 175th events coming up this year. By the way, the article about Casimir Pulaski was sent to the paper by my nephew, Wade Schott. I am proud of Fl him. He is my brother's son and gradu- orence's ated from Mt. Pulaski High School. On the Lighter Side - While visiting a Gr sick friend at the hospital one evening, ner I heard groan of pain from the room next door. Little yelps of distress were followed by long moans as if all hope was gone. I had visions of patients with massive injuries; limbs in traction and on my way out I couldn't resist a peek. I had forgotten what evening it was. There were no patients in the room. The two off-duty orderlies stood in front of the television set. They were watching "Monday Night Football" with the sound turned off. Food for Thought- Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Do not be terrified, do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

Today's (March 5) issue reminded me of years ago. We had a lot bigger snows when I was young and we did not need to make a snow hill 69 years ago. We had Holmes Hill. A lot of happy days and nights were spent there. The city used to block off side streets so we were safe. 60 years ago life was a lot different than today. We had less restrictions, more discipline, more respect for people and prop- erty. We were rowdy but not destructive. We were also home by no later than 10. I am so happy I lived and have fond memories of the 40s 50s and 60s. Frank Sinatra said it best. THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES.
