Rock wars on 850 East

Yesterday afternoon, I was shocked as another rock similar in size to this one went speeding down our road on a front loader. The two rocks were dug up by the county road crew as they worked on the road about 3 years ago. Many neighbors lusted after these rocks, but no one had the equipment to move them. Ownership of the rocks was in question because they were on the right of way. They are adjacent to our neighbor to the north's property, and his daughter claimed they were hers. After three years, the rocks were still there, so another neighbor who had coveted the rocks mentioned it to a friend who had acquired a front loader, and he took it upon himself to liberate one of the rocks and deliver it to her. It wasn't long before the neighbor who claimed the rock discovered it was gone. An investigation was launched. The location of the rock was revealed. Angry shouts. This is a long story. The rock is to be returned to its former place. This sign appeared by the remaining rock this morning. The front loader has a hydraulic leak, so the rock still sits where it was delivered yesterday. More neighborhood drama to follow.

Unique Memorial

Tim was the manager of Liberty Hall for many years. When I had my hot dot cart downtown, he was a "regular." It was a privilege to have known him, and his loss will be felt by many for a long time to come. This unique memorial is in front of Liberty Hall as a tribute to him, and it is a sweet reminder of his legendary good humor and his firm but fair management. He was a good friend who always had a genuine smile and time for a "hello."
