a budget of $2,359,896.39 arid a

The County will levy the

ETA N SHRDLU
By SLEY RAMSEY
I was talking to Roy Gibson the other day
and he was telling me about a column,
"Musings" written by Wallace Findley in the
Blountstown "County Record" last week in
which he reminisced about what happened and
what was in Blountstown many years ago.
Of course, this gave me an idea for a part of
this column, since I was still drawing a blank
about what to put in it this week last Thursday
when I was talking to Roy. Usually, by
Thursday, I have about half of it down on the
back of an envelope, a scrap of paper, written in
ball point on the back of my hand or committed
to what has, proved to be .ia ery .i- iaiI
memory. I think of enough subject for two',.r
three columns about what happens during the
week, but unless I write down a word or two
about what happened, by the time I sit down to
the typesetter to bang it out on Saturday
morning, the ideas have flitted away, leaving
nothing but blank space.
This recalling subject which Wallace used is
a good idea. I haven't been here too long. Our
family moved here in 1940, so we are compara-
tive newcomers when you go to talking history.
Even so, I have lived here long enough to
remember when the street in front of The Star
building was not paved. I've even been here long
enough to remember when there wasn't a street
in front of The Star. One would have to drive up
