Monday, August 4, 2008 begins Advertising Program

At the suggestion of many of our loyal readers, has begun to accept advertising for local businesses as a way to offset costs of our editorial and publishing operation.

Our first advertiser is Virgil "VA" Goodlick of Wapella. Virgil does General Tractor and Automobile Repairing, Welding and Machine Work in his Wapella garage. His prices are reasonable and he is very knowledgeable about his profession.

Please patronize this and every other Wapella Business!

Art was around LeRoy, I think? He and daughter Robin? Nice folks.

Trivia: Art once *did* mistakenly claim that I threatened to "clean his plow" out at party out at John and Denise Torbert's. I may have been yelling at the tapper, but certainly not at Art, and am wondering if the threat "clean your plow" has been heard in Wapella or Clinton since?

I think you're right, IRBW, it was Bob. My bad.

Bob and Robin were good folks, regardless.

I think the Goodlick family from Wapella are related to the ones around LeRoy/Bellflower.
