Randall By Fawna Barrett BarbaraRamsey was released from the hospital Monday. Last week Carolyn and Robert Thurston. Vermont. were in the Randall area for a few days Panorama By Fawna Barrett One of the most odorious reatures in God's kingdom is the skunk and when two come to call,at the front door. no less, yuck!! Aggravated by two dogs, one skunk was clawing at the front door, while spraying his pro- tective stream in all directions, near the front door, on the dogs, on the side- walk and other points. After the critters were killed, they were thrown far off in the brush. Later. the pup drug one back near the house. This writer was carrying the dead body off, only to have the pup grab the hanging tail and take off with it. After a couple more attempts, the game ended in defeat for me. After gallons of bleach, hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and products from the Extension office, the scent was diluted, but lingering still. It didn' t help that the dogs bore some of the stink and left a trail wherever they went. Clothes were laundered, aired and other attempts were made to de- stroy the odor. After two days, life returned to almost normal and the new baby could come home to a pleasant home. The mind grows by what it feeds on. Life is a disease, and the only dif- ference between one man and another is the stage of the disease at which he lives.

The new building is to be 50 x 80 feet. It will contain a conference room, kitchen, rest room facilities, and alarge community room that will have a seat- ing capacity of around 100. Older buildings on the east side of Lebanon's Main Street were torn down last year, and this new building will take their place just south of the post office building. There will be a parking lot on the east side of the new building. According to Cindy Stones, plan- ning committee member, "The pro- cess has been a long one, but we were certainly glad when it was approved.
