I IIII IIIIII I II III Ell IIIIIIIII I J .11 [ _ ] " ! -=- Bourbon / Leasburg Cuba Free Press - August 21, - Page, ?B A Message from the Mayo ,'s Desk Would whoever 'borrowed' one of the benches from in front of the Christian Thrift Shop, please return it? I'm sure you didn't mean to steal from a bunch of Christian ladies who volunteer their time and donate their resources to the poor of our community. (When it was suggested that the benches be fastened down, we said, "Oh, not in Bourbon." So, I'm sure it is just borrowed.) But, if you see a new bench in your neighbor's yard, that might be it, (the 'donated by Bourbon Boosters' sign will be a dead give-away), suggest to them that the Thrift Shop would like it back. We have a message from the trash company-- they are moving the Tuesday pick-up to a later time of day. We will not be their first stop on Tuesdays, only. So, if you over-sleep on Tuesdays, it's going to be OK, but don't over- sleep on Fridays. Two of our neighbors, Bob Hellrung and Cheryl Leeds, have actually visited Bourbon, Indiana, population appoximately 1,600, and brought back pictures and newspaper articles. You could subsitute 'MO' for 'IN' and you would think they were talking about us, their post office is even identical. They had their sesquicentennial celebration last week at their annual 'Summer Fest' during which they had a parade, sold history books, t- shirts, etc., had an auction, (they auctioned off their anniversary quilt, we're keeping ours), had an 'old-person' contest and other familiar sound- ing activities. They are pretty much a mirror image of us. It's going to be fun getting to know them. / Our local tree expert tells us some of the pear trees apparently are suffering from root damage from storms. Plus the 'King Crimson' tree at Sites Park is dead, probably due to too much water. I guess in trying to get the flowers to thrive, we killed the tree. We'll have to pick a variety that is more compatible with a garden. We are in the process of deciding what kind of trees to replace the dead ones with. It is more difficult than one would imagine, you have to worry about sight distances for cars, electric wires, roots for sidewalks, water needs, etc., etc. If anyone has an opinion, please let us know. The cub scouts had a great time at their soap- box derby last Saturday. They closed off a sec- tion of Pine Street for a couple of hours. (Contrary to what you hear from some of our neighbors who don't pay city taxes but seem to have a visceral need to mess in our business, our officers spend the majority of their time doing community police work.) We recently cut the time spent on our traffic safety program on 1-44 by 50 percent and, trag- ically, the accident rate out there more than tripled. During one period, our officers respond- ed to six accidents within a 36 hour period. For some reason, we live on an extremly dangerous section of highway. That's why the highway patrol encourages us to help patrol it. We do what we can with the resources we have. The community choir is forming. Practice is Thursday evenings at the high school music room. Sign up at City Hall, or at the high school with Doyle Hobson, high school music teacher. Didja Know ! By Alice Bremer Didja Know a young couple, Jeffrey and Sandra (Hoover) Roseberry from Ohio were in Bourbon Monday? They were looking for anyone who remem- bered her parents, Rev. J. W Hoover and Carol Ann. She said he was pastor of the SeventhA}ay Adventist Church when she was young and he was ,killed in an auto accident on Highway 66. We put her in touch with several we thought might remember them. Didja Know two of our dear friends have been in the hospi- tal, but have now returned home? Thelma Baldwin was in Sullivan and Ruth Pack was in Missouri Baptist in St. Louis. We are glad they have improved, and pray they will gain strength each day. Didja Know a long-ago resi- dent of Bourbon passed away early this spring? Doris (Maschoff) Reinke who lived here with her family, attended Concordia Lutheran Church. She actually had a sister named Concordia, and two oth- ers, Ruth and Gertrude and a brother, Paul. We wonder if any "old-timers" remember her. Didja Know Carolyn and Lester Isgriggs just returned from a "second honeymoon" in the Bahamas? They enjoyed the week, had beautiful weath- er and saw many sights. Didja Know we were happy to have a brief visit with Pat Baxter last week? Pat, who with her husband, Gordon, owned and operated the Meramec Valley Nursery, has sold the nursery since Gordon's passing. She said she will be moving back to St. Peters to be near her children. Bourbon will miss the Baxter family, as they were always community mind- ed and helped with many proj- ects here. Didja Know Ruthene Harrison and granddaughter, Jeanette Rabjohns and daugh- ter, Eamli enjoyed a,,weekend in St. Charles? They toured the shops and historical places in the old city. They especially enjoyed seeing the replicas of the Lewis and Clark boats that have been made for the com- memorative journey. St. Charles also has a home and tavern, recently built, to show the building style of that his- toric time. Didja Know there will be a card party at the senior center on August 26, and they will have a 10:30 brunch on August 27 with bingo at 11:30? They will also be giving a door prize on August 28. Seniors, you don't want to miss any of these late August events. Didja Know the American Legion and Auxiliary Unit of Bourbon will be having instal- lation of officers on August 26? Also, special guests for the evening will be the girls and boys who attended Girls State and Boys State this summer and their families. Dinner will be served at 6:30 at the Bourbon Community Center.
