Pulaski Resident Thank you to every- one who worked so hard to make the 175 t such a success. There had to be many hours of planning and hard work for many people. Barb Theobald, Sharon Stone-Cook, Roger Capps, Candy Capps Cullen, Will Capps, Start Manes, and H. E. "Bud" Manes. During the Presidential Museum Kick-off, these folks gathered for a group photo as descendants of the Turley and Capps founding families. Roger Capps provided the photo and included one of those "17l be darn" events. Candy Capps Cullen and Will Capps are sister and brother, descendants of Jabez and his second wife, Elizabeth. Candy and Will are the same genera- tion as Roger. Candy and Will grew up in Portland, Oregon, and lived less than a mile from where Roger's family was living, but had never met. They finally did meet, here in Mt. Pulaski during the 175 t Celebration. The 175th committee asked me to do a horse- shoe tournament and I told them that I would be glad to do that. People who came said that they really enjoyed learning about the game and participating in the tournament. Everyone won at least one game. The two ladies Seem to Did Pitch Shoes really enjoy it; they came two days in a row. There was no real winners or losers, we just played for fun and had a good time. Partt'pants were - Lor- ene Stoll, Christy Luster, Ron Hohimer, Gene Cowger, Ed WilLiams, Randy Reeter, Marty Clementz, Ben Gaston, Ron Bailey, Terry John- son, Gary Knauer and myself. I would like to thank all of you who came and played the little game I love. I hope I was able to teach you a little more about the game that you didn't already know. The two" ladies had never pitched horseshoes before and they both did really well. Thanks again. Steven B aile STEVE HAHN hap- pened on a bit of work at the Zion Lutheran Church.

Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there:* CALL FOR A QUOTE 24/7 00StateFarm Jus' Thinkin' There are times when someone says things very well and it bears sharing. Here is a quote; I guess you would call it, from William J.H. Boetcker. It says a lot in a few words. You cannot bring about prosperity by dis- couraging thrift. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character and courage by taking away man's initiative and indepen- dence. You cannot help small men by tearing down big men. You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer. You cannot keep out of trouble by spend- ing more than your income. You cannot establish security on borrowed money. You cannot hel p men permanently by doing for them what they will not do for themselves. These phrases cover a lot of wisdom. Some might call it common sense. When life feels complicated, simple but profound truth can be forgotten. It is something on which to be thinkin'... Editor's Notebook By Mike Lakin City Treasurer Jim Sutton said the State of Illinois gave out $100,000,000 in grants for roadwork. Mr. Pulaski's share was... $7,387. Don Maxheimer's warning sign was fully obeyed during the celebration. "Your wheels will come off" is not a threat.., it's a fact. Wally Kautz manned the Courthouse during the 4  of July Celebra- tion. He reports about 500 people visited the local historic site. Fred Lipp dropped a note and wrote, "I would like to say how much we enjoyed the fireworks on Monday night. Everyone at my house, approxi- mately 11 people, agreed that this year's fireworks were the best ever." 73 golfers participated in the Vinegar Hill Golf Outing July 1. It was OK in the morning, heat- wise, and all had a good time. U ' '" l,II,,,]l  ,]IIIlI ,]i,,IiIIIl [Ili[ll))I!iIIiUIIII, fliMIhdlIm,ll,IIItI,IIlIIiII]!II, iill',, "'  :
