A g+a,- limes+l+O August 6, 2011 "It's old news, but there's nothing else wrong with it." Mark Twain 8MALLTo 217 WN PAP 8,00T4 r', .,R8 INo "cLI-ON IA,,, 't2/31/11 - Steve Did It Again Back-to-Back Class Cluunpi00 Steve won his class again this year with a record of 14 wins and I loss By Mike Lakin Steve Bailey of Mt. Pulaski is well known in horseshoe pitching circles- although horseshoes are pitched in a straight line and it has nothing to do with circles. Since Steve and Phyllis could not get enough of the heat and humidity they drove deeper into heat and humidity territory. They drove to West Monroe, Louisiana. But there was a reason for this trip. Steve competed in the 2011 World Horseshoe Tournament. Steve said that over 800 horseshoe pitchers entered in the tournament. The technical side was the participants were put into classes according to ringer percentages. Ringer percentages range from as low as 5% to as high as 90%. Steve is in about the 20% bracket. He moved up a bracket from last year. There are 14 to 16 pitchers in each class. Steve was in J1 class of 16 pitchers. Steve won his class again this year with a record of 14 wins and 1 loss. He said he had a really great time and was very happy to be Class Champion again. The classes are so evenly matched .that anyone can win their own class, so you have to really be on your game. He said he had three games where he didn't pitch very well, one he lost and was lucky to win the other two. In one other game he only won by two points, but he did pitch.really well and so did his opponent. Making new friends every year is something he always looks forward to. Next year the tournament will be in Knoxville Tennessee. Times Photo Carylyn's Style Rite Now Serving 3 Generation Customers By Mike Lakin When Brad Aylesworth dropped off at the paper a 1969 book of chances for a TV drawing - spon- sored by the Mt. Pulaski Jaycees - one of the businesses that caught my eye was Carylyn's Style Rite. My first thought was, Carylyn's been in business 42-years? Well, Carylyn Pippenger has been in business 42-years plus. To be exact, it has been 47-years. After three years in Lincoln (at Cheryl's Clip & Curl), Carylyn opened for business in Mt. Pulaski in November 1967. When she opened her shop, there were nine style shops in Mt. Pulaski. To put things in perspective, Cary- lyn pointed to her original on the wall.., issued by the office of Illi- nois Governor Otto Kerner. To Page 14... " State Fair Tram Time It's that time of year again! The Illi- nois State Fair is quickly approaching (August 12 - 21) and with that comes the opportunity for all of us to sup- port our local school booster clubs and community organizations. Volunteers have run the State Fair Trams from our communities for over 25 years and it Continues to be one of the .largest fundraisers for many of these organizations. It is important to remember that the booster clubs and organizations benefiting from this fundraiser are all volunteer organi- zatious and are not recipients of tax money. The members of these organiza- tions are you, your families, and your friends and neighbors that all have thesame goal of making our com- munities and schools better. Some of the organizations that benefit from this project are PASE, Mt. Pulaski Education Association, Mt. Pulaski Topper Boosters (boys basketball, boys baseball, boys golf, girls basketball, girls volleyball, cheerleading, soccer, track, student council, drama club, FFA, etc.), Mt. Pulaski Bruin Boosters (boys basket- ball, boys baseball, girls basketball, girls volleyball, cheerleading, track, etc.), Post Prom, Rotary Club, Zion Lutheran-Mt. Pulaski and Sons of the American Legion. We know it is a busy time of year with vacations, camps, and other activities involving the fairs. How- ever, if every person would give their time for one 7-hour shift per their organization or per their student's activity, tiffs project would be very easy to accomplish. When working a shift you are given free admission into the fair- grounds and are free to enjoy the rest of the day, either before or after your shift, at the fair. We are in need of volunteers at all levels but especially tram drivers and riders. If you would be willing to help out, please go by the office of Downing, Przykopanski, Clements and May Insurance at 118 S. Washington St. and sign up for a shift or call 217- 792-5251. Remember this is an opportunity to support your local booster clubs and organizations and raise monies for them that come from outside of our communities and school district. Mt.

Pulaski retired from Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital after more than 31 years work- ing in the Memorial Health System. Gloria served most recently as nurse man- ager in Family Maternity Suites. She began her career at age 16 and worked as a nurse's aide for four years. She spent 23 years as labor nurse at Memorial Medical Center before coming to ALMH. "When I went back to nursing school, my dream had always been to return to ALMH someday as a nurse," she said. "It has been a delight to return here and be a part of building the new hospital." "We spend more work- hag time with our workers than we do most of our relatives, and they become our extended families," Gloria said. "I will always cherish the relationships I have formed here and the opportunity I had to return to ALMH." Newspaper Deadline Tues Aug. 16 for Sat. Aug. 20 issue. Advertising Deadline Fri. Aug. 12.
