Pulaski, issued a proclamation proclainng the week of August 20-26, Harry J. Wible week honoring Mr. Wible's 75th birtb, day, .his 35 years of publishing the Times News and devotion to the com- munity. It was at this time that the honorary title-of "Mr. Mt. Pulaski" was bestowed upon him. I remember well because the Mt. Pulaski Kitchen Band was part of the talent show that night and I was their director. Lily Tomlin was in Springfield this past week: and that made me also remember when Emer- son Horn made a huge chair ibr Grace Harem. She played the little girl, (Edith Ann) that used to an.rose Lily's audiehces. She was part of the talent too. (God rest of all their souls.) It was a fun night and Mr. Wible deserved all of the praise he got. On the Lighter Side - A wife went to the Bureau of Missing Persons to report the mysteri- ous disappearance of her hus- band. "He's short, thin, bald and has no.teeth. As a matter of fact, most of him was missing before he was." Food for Thought - Ephesians 4:32 Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another as Christ has forgave you. P.S.
