On the Go Topper Red Hatters and Spring- field's longtime favorite restaurant, Maldaner's, enjoyed a copacetic encounter, Tuesday Sept. 21, for their monthly luncheon-meeting. Several Red Hatters were able to make the luncheon. As usual for this particular res- taurant, wait staff did an excellent job, and the food is always fantas- tic! Their varied menu offers so many tasty and elegant lunches. Having survived several years with- out a good steak.., beef it's said is unhealthy for older folks... I suc- cumbed to the temptation of a 6 oz. filet mignon! It was excellent, by the way. Served with mashed potatoes with a t~ght wine sauce, and crispy cooked baby green beans, and their delicious coffee, t'was like manna from Heaven. (I would like to men- tion that the steak was almost, I said "almost", as good as the perfect prime rib that Marilyn and Rich Edwards served each holiday season at their annual dinner for employees and spouses.., but that's another story.) Individual meals for other Red Hatters were well received and each person seemed to enjoy her selec- tion. The desserts were... (Believe it or not, I'm almost speechless recall- ing those fresh, just-out-of-the-oven goodies they offered to top off a meal!![!!) No wonder, Maldaner's remains a favorite dining spot in this area[ Bey Cyrulik brought as a guest her sister-in-law Freda Gibbs. It was lovely to have her and she, too, enjoyed the luncheon time. Lovely potted fall flowers and nut- cups graced each table setting which were provided by the co-hostesses that day, Beverly Cyrulik and Cathy Voile. Nevertheless, it was well worth the trip. With hunger well-satisfied by this time, we headed home from another great fellowship time with the Topper Red Hatters. What do you want to bet?.., several ended up with naptime upon arrival home. Be prepared for a lovely day for our October luncheon-meeting! We're going (hooray) to Morn- ingstar Mercantile and Care in Salisbury. It's such a beautiful drive west in the Fall... colorful leaves, a nip in the air, warm days.., and plenty of good company. Oae of the .potted.-flov~erpots.~,,:We h~av reservations there at was delivered by a fellow member_ Noon Tuesday, Oct. 19. Leaving to/Vlargie Borgerson, a Red Hatter herself, who is temporarily at Vomerlieth Living Center, recover- ing and awaiting the opportunity to resune her monthly luncheon Mps withus. We miss you, Margie dear, and hope you may rejoin us very SOOI1 only detriment to Maldaner's is downtown parking situation and the fact that road repairs were being carried on (what else is new in Spmgfield in the summertime?) and most of us had to park a few blocks away: from the American legion park- ing lot at ll:00a SHARP, we pray there's to be no rain that particular day. Be sure to call somebody for a ride if you need one. Reservations must be called in to Madonna Boyle, 674- 3209 or Phyllis Hawk, 792-5225. They are co-hostesses for the trip and need to confirm reservations with the Mercantile Cafe. Guests are welcome anytime. Come join us for a beautiful drive and a fun luncheon. Just call either co-hostess to confirm a place for you. Submitted by Pat Straumann By Mike Lakin The Mt. Pulaski City Council tabled the question of golf carts running on city streets. Mt. Pulaski Police Chief Lynn Freer checked into the matter. Operation of golf carts on city streets is illegal unless the city specifically passes an ordi- nance allowing them. However, what are called slow speed vehicles are legal. But... The city can also pass an ordinance banning such vehicles. Slow speed vehicles are specifically manufactured as slow speed vehicles and are not golf carts. As for ATVs, these can only be used on county - township roads for farm husbandry operation going to and from producing farm ground. ATVs are not permitted on city streets. It was noted, the elevator has a special permit to operate a golf cart between the elevators in town. The recent report of the golf cart being on the square will be looked into Golf Cart Question Tabled and the elevator cautioned that this was outside its area of permitted operation. In Other Business - ),The Council voted to spend $2,500 on the backstop project at the ball diamonds and to haul rock for the project. An additional $1,000 will be spent later in the fiscal year. Traffic problems on Greene between Vine and Garden Streets will ae checked into. The Council voted to hire an additional part-time police officer and to send the officer to the part- time Police Academy for training. IbThe new sewer line west of the CN railroad tracks will commence when landowner permits are com- pleted. Work on the new Elkhart Road lift station will start mid to late November. Tarring bf street cracks will be done after the fall leaf vac work is done. City Treasurer Jim Sutton reported the state has pad the city $38,600 in back taxes. This brings the General Fund up to $94,507. The Council received National Flood Insurance Program informa- tion for review. Being part of the program will help the city with grant applications. Halloween Trick or Treat Hours were set from 5 pm to 8 pro, Oct. 31. Trick or Treaters can call at homes with porch lights on. The city was informed it is behind on its TIF District reports. Of the 1100 TIF Districts in the state, 500 are behind on reports. The company that set up the district (Economic Development Resources) was hired to bring the reports up to date.
