Pulaski lic. #058-12-1898 1792-55931 After the ceremonial turning of the earth (see front page) the work started on the construction of the additions to the Mt. Pulaski Zion Lutheran church. The residential structures east and across the alley at the church are being demolished as part of the project. It was a take what you want offer that was accepted by folks to recycle what they wanted from the residential property.

Times Photos Words of Caution When you see a pickup truck with the license plate "free roof" in town, you have to wonder. The following words of caution are from the Illinois Attorney General's office. Watching for fraudulent roof- ing contractors to avoid getting scammed: Be wary of contractors who solicit door-to-door. Work with established contractors who have a solid reputation. Work only with licensed, bonded and insured contrac- tors and have them provide you with documentation. Require references and check them out. Don't feel pressured into signing a contract, and never sign a contract with blanks. A contract should include the contractor's name, busi- ness name, phone number and address. Avoid payment-in-full up front. Some contractors may require a partial up front pay- ment, but the amount should not exceed approximately 20% of the total estimate amount. Never let work begin until the contract is finalized. Don't pay a contractor in full or sign a completion certif- icate until the job is completed and you are satisfied with the work. Never let anyone persuade you to seek reimbursement for nonexistent or exagger- ated losses or damages. This is insurance fraud, which is a felony. Mt.

She is now the Wedding Planner at Disney World, Florida and her groom is employed at the park also. The wedding took place at 5 EM Monday, October 3rd at the Chapel at the Wed- ding Pavilion near the Grand Floridian Resort. There were six bridesmaids attired in lime green dresses carrying orange and yellow flowers. My granddaughter, Angie Mizeur, was one of them. During the wedding recep- tion, the bride had ALL of the Star Wars characters come to the event as a surprise to her groom, (as he is a big fan of the Star Wars). The buffet reception was at the Board Walk Resort; Atlan- tic Dance Hall with music by a D.J. Mickey Mouse and Pluto joined the group after the wed- ding. The menu selections were from various venues at Disney World. Besides the Disney char- acter mingling with the wed- ding guests, everyone had the opportunity to have photos and post card pictures taken with the various characters. A cartoonist was also available to draw character sketches of anyone who wanted one.
