Chemistry 0 O~ Raising the roof of the Mt. Pulaski Courthouse continued and concerns can be laid to rest; the color of the roofing is grey. Nothing generated more calls and e-mails than what was thought by some, to be a red roof going on the court- house. But if you think about it, would the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency had gone with a red roof?. Time Photo When a really purple 1951 Chevrolet Deluxe Fastback 2-Door Aerosedan is parked on the square, you get a call. "Lee & Karen Beal of Comland own this charmer. Lee said it's a daily driver and it's in town frequently, but even this classic car fan hadn't seen it. Bought from Gary Bryson, Lee's purple Deluxe was the color Gary chose for it. While not so sure about the purple color when he bought it, Lee said purp!e is its color for sure. Times Photo To the Average & Ordinary Citizens of Mt. Pulhski We have VIPs or idiots amon9 us, maybe both. On a trip to the sewer pond with tree waste recently, I could not believe my eyes. Right by the gate were bags of waste thrown over the fence. It appeared like it was left there because the gate was locked. After cooling my jets for a period of time I came to the rational decision that it was there because Matt had been called, the gate was locked, and Matt had said since you have just a few items, leave it by the gate and I will' haul it the rest of the way when I unlock in the morning. Ran into Matt a few days later and asked if my idea was correct. He very diplomatically without the (VIP or idiot) connotation explained that it happens all the time and without his blessing. Some times the backhoe needs to be dispatched to be able to get the gate opened. Citizens of Mt. Pulaski this action could very take away one of our great perks of living here. This not Matt's threat, or suggestion; this is my opinion when we let the VIPs or idiots continue the actions. You could have to deal with our neighbor to the north 15 miles who has open dump on Wednes- day and Saturday only. They also have a person by the gate monitoring everything being dumped. No chance to slide in extras as I wimess in Mt. Pulaski; construction materials, trash, cans, buckets, gar- bage, cardboard, Styrofoam packing, etc. - All kinds of things that do not grow on a tree, in a garden, or flower bed. Ordinary citizens watch for the abuse of our fine service we enjoy. Report those that do not follow the rules and save the service we areso lucky to have. VIPs please share your status so that we can understand why you deserve your special perk. Idiots get educated. PS: Just found out the same problem occurs at the recycle bin for paper. Last week a TV antenna, weed- eater, and couch were dropped off there. Just wondering- could it be the same VIPs or idiots. Don Maxheimer Anyone who is an abuser of the privilege we have, and would like to justify your action, please feel free to call me 217-519-0174. I'm ready to listen to why my opinion is wrong. This eye-catching sign at MPGS is elegant in its simplicity. It probably rises to folk art and the guys from "American Pickers" would offer at least $30 - $50 for it.
