I have been closely fol- lowing the town debate on allowing golf carts on the streets. For over two years now, I have contacted the police and wntten to you with concerns of town chil- dren driving lawn mowers on our streets. Some of them fly across streets without watching traffic. It's scary and irritating when locals would like to have windows open 'in nice weather. Funny, you don't see these kids anywhere near where they live! Maybe their fami- lies don't like the noise. Well, here's a news flash people.., neither do we! Keep them in your yard. I have requested police patrols to watch for these kids and give them tickets. If I remember correctly the driving age is still 16, right? Sleepless in Mr. Pulaski If 8-year-old kids can ride bikes, .razn stop. signs, and ride on the wrong side of the street, why can't responsible adults drive golf carts? Ready-to-Roll This summez a kid on a skateboard was lying flat on ~t and roUed down South Lafayette Street right in front of me. If I weren't a careful driver, I'd have hit him. Instead of worrying over golf carts, ban skateboards on streets. Fed Up As soon as an alderman buys a golf cart you'll see them passing the ordi- nance to permit them to run on city streets. Just Thinkin' Thank you Roger Bates and Phil Bertoni,Cor bring- ing up respect to the flag. People will jump up to grab candy during the parade, but won't budge from their lawn chair when the flag comes buy.

Stoll President, Mt. Pulaski District Library Board October 5, 2010 Mt. Pulaski Times - 6 Mt. Pulaski 175th Anniversary Historical Sketches #10 in a Series By Phil Bertoni Carl Sandburg writes that Lincoln's interest in logic certainly must have led him to learn and enjoy the game of. chess. On one occasion, when Lin- coln had been called to the dinner table several times by Mary, one of his boys was sent to finally summon his father and instructed to get his father's attention from a serious game with Judge Treat; "the third time, the boy lined up where he could get foot action and kicked the chessboard, kings, queens, pawns, and all, into the air. The father acted as if chessboards were made to be kicked into the air, took the boy's hand, smiled to Judge Treat, 'I reckon we'll have to finish this game some other time', went to dinner and left Judge Treat pultin/t at the gills, with 'mussed-up digr nity." [Sandburg, Vol. II. pp. 280-281] As Lincoln progressed with his learning over the years, so did his appear- ance. He had worn deerskin moccasins as a youth, then wore rawhide boots and now as a trav- eling respectable lawyer, wore calf leather boots. On his head, he had once worn coonskin caps, then a more pronounced rac- coon tail headpiece, then he graduated into black felt hats and finally into what the world would always remember him, "a tall, stiff, silk hat known as a 'stovepipe', also called a 'plug hat'". In this stovepipe - "nearly a foot tall", he carried let- ters, newspaper clippings, deeds, mortgages, checks, and receipts. His physical features are well known from all the photos, paintings, illustrations and writings that have been produced over the years. Neverthe- less, it is noteworthy and interesting to reflect on what one acquaintance once remarked, "Lincoln was the strongest man I ever knew. In the grocery, I often saw him pick up a forty-four gallon barrel of whisky, place it on the counter, and then lower it on the other side." "Lincoln had no library, clerk, no index return, no diary. When he wanted to preserve a memorandum, he noted it down on a card and stuck it in a drawer or in his vest pocket or in his hat. While outside of his mind all was anarchy and confusion, inside all was symmetry and method. His mind was his work- shop; he needed no office, no pen, ink and paper; he could perform his chief labor by self-introspection. For his important business matters, he had an enve- lope marked, 'when you can't fred it anywhere else, look in this'." "In the speeches he was now ready to make, with the American nation for an audience, there would be reason and passion rising so overwhelmingly out of them that some men and women would know that they came from other regions than those of personal ambition. He was in the toils of some- thing else than personal ambition." Speed was a young merchant who befriended Lincoln after his return from the state legislature in 1837, almost friendless and penniless - allowing him to stay with him in his room above his business. "Excepting Speed, James H. Matheny was the most intimate unmarried friend of Lincoln in Springfield at that time, and was his best man, finally, when Lincoln married." [Most of the above quotes were out of Sandburg's works.] More than 20,000 men were killed, wounded, or missing in action in the battle of Antietam, September 17, 1862. This was the bloodiest one-day fight during the Civil War. VdLD HARE CAFE At Horsefeathers in Elkhart Delicious Home Cooking at its Best!
