In 1925, they formed a company called Travel Air Manufac- turing. This company became one of the nation's leading airplane manufactur- ers. Two years later, Clyde Cessna set out on his own, to build a high-perfor- mance, single-wing plane that could outperform the biplanes of the time. His monoplane model would be able to reach speeds of 145 miles per hour and fly more than seven hours in length, a remarkable achievement for the time. However, the Great Depression hit and the company put the business on hold. Clyde Cessna went back to the farm, but his nephew, Dwayne Wallace, was still working in aviation. Dwayne encouraged Clyde to restart the busi- ness and together, they did so. Clyde retired in 1936 but his nephew would continue to build the company. The company grew and changed through the years. For example, the 1956 Cessna Skyhawk would outsell every other light airplane in the world. Today, the Cessna Aircraft Company is considered one of the world' s largest makers of small aircraft. The world' s most popular airplanes. That was one description of the planes built by the Cessna Aircraft Company. And there' s more. Before revitaliz- ing Cessna, Dwayne Wallace had been working for none other than Clyde's former partner, Walter Beech, who founded his own airplane company.

Working with a roofer that is regis- tered is a bare minimum to help vent problems. The attorney general's. office also recommends the following tips in dealing with any transient con- tractors, including rooters: Get recom- mendations and references. Get at least three written estimates from different contractors. Check contractor com- plaint records with the Better Business Bureau• Understand your payment options and right to cancel Any Kansans who have problems with roofing contractors or other com- panies that follow storms may file a request for the attorney general' s Con- sumer Protection Division to investi- gate at www.InYourCornerKansas.org. The attorney general requests that Kan- sans promptly report any unregistered person or company attempting to sell roofing services by calling his office or using the online reporting form. Recent storm damage could attract illegal building contractors Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt reminded Kansas homeowners in areas damaged by re- cent severe weather to use caution dur- ing the cleanup and rebuilding to avoid scams by transient contractors. "The recent hail and wind damage in several areas of the state means many homeowners will be seeking con- tractors for roof repairs," Schmidt said. "When considering roofing work on a home or business, it is important that consumers make sure their roofing con- tractor is properly registered before signing any contract or having any work done. Consumers should request a copy of their roofer's registration certificate and then should check our consumer protection website to con- firm that the registration remains ac- tive." The requirement to register with the attorney general' s office is in addi- tion to any other local requirements that may be imposed by cities or coun- ties. An online directory is available at www.InYourCornerKansas.org. The Kansas Roofing Contractor Registration Act was passed during the 2013 legislative session and took effect July 1, 2013.

The Franco-Mexican War was fought be- cause Mexico had defaulted on loans received from France, England. and Spain. England and Spain settled through negotiations, but not France. France, hoping to create a depen- dent empire, attacked Mexico. The French Army was well equipped and well-funded. Early in the six year long war (1861 to 1867) the beleaguered Mexican Army defeated a seemingly stronger French force at Puebla de Los Angeles in north central Mexico. The victory was not particularly significant militarily. However it be- came a rallying point and was signifi- cant because of the moral boost it gave the Mexican Army and the Mexican people. Though not a national holiday in Mexico, it is celebrated in the State of Puebla and the city of Puebla de Los Angeles. In the United States it is ob- served to recognize and honor Mexi- can culture and tradition. See Us For OFFiCP $1JPPI.IP$ 111 E.
