11 Topper Ladies: Out & About... On a beautiful Fall day, Tuesday, September 15, our group met for luncheofl at a very favorite dining spot in Spring- field: The Chesapeake. They feature a bountiful buffet at 11am each weekday, and t the food is simply delicious and hard to beat! A pleasant meal and scintillating conversation, surrounded by a peaceful environment, adds greatly to a serene dining experience. Wait staff is thoroughly efficient and courteous, never allowing an empty coffee cup to remain that way for long! Co-hostesses were Robin Benson and Joyce Maxheimer. They gifted each lady with a generous bag of candy and assorted goodies. The door prize, won by Bey Cyrulik, was handmade by Robin. What a talented lady she isI She had made two beautifully crafted, ornate, crystal tree ornaments shaped like icicles. They were simply magnificent in their presentation.., a real treasure and keepsake for years to come. Needless to say, Bey was quite delighted. Also...betcha didn't know, but that enormous Magno- lia tree, just off the Chesapeake driveway is over 250 years ol old. Not only that, but it is thought that it was planted there by area Indians of that period of Springfield history. At press time, luncheon information for the October meet- ing was not available. Watch for this information in the next edition of the Times. Submitted by - Pat Straumann ANTIQUES... available at Salt Creek Attic Bingo!

Thomps6n has released Part Three: Plea for lustice (the third book in her Buried Truth Trilogy). In Plea for Justice Thompson corre- sponds with Michael Drab- ing, then goes to Menard Cor- rectional Center to question and encourage him to submit to brain fingerprinting. Upon leaving the prison, she and a friend have an alarming encounter, which does not appear coincidental. An upstate Illinois detec- tive reveals that his depart- ment has purchased her book and reopened their investiga- tion into the disappearance of Michael Mansfield, one of the unsolved murders. Through the years Thomp- son introduced supporting evidence that accomplices more than likely aided and abetted Drabing and Smrekar. She says that authorities con- sider these cases closed and has made some interesting discoveries over the years. Thompson writes she real- ized she must expose her investigation in the hope that public interest and media attention will force official reinvestigation of the mur- ders.
