JULY 1, 2000
SCHOOL IS OUT!!!
annual last day of school picnic was hosted by the best
weather so far this year. There was plenty of food and
merriment for all the students.
All participants joined in the many
organized activities. A camera was generouly loaned by a
well respected Beartown resident. It is hoped the
pictures will be developed soon and that the camera is
not beyond repair.
As the day grew warmer, the playfulness
of the young ones increased and ALL the food disappeared.
Several new games were invented; some to the dismay of
the now tired chaperones. These youngsters would
certainly receive notoriety of some type during there
lives. The picnic was more like a circus.
Eventually the adults let go of the
traditional institutional rules and joined in the now
wild celebration. The principal got the idea of using a
hose to create some new games. By the time the busses
arrived everyoue was soaked. It is doubtful that this
LAST DAY celebration can ever be improved upon!
the elected Justice was just an ordinary citizen who was
unlucky enough to receive the most write in votes for the
office. One such official used to consult what appeared
to be a law book, but it was really a mail-order
somebody say Beartown?
BEARTOWN SUIT SETTLED
The lawsuit brought by the resident that
allegedly stepped in a hole in front of the General Store
and broke his leg has finally been settled. Damages had
been set at $100,000 but the town had appealed to the
Supreme Court. The judgement was reduced to $50,000.
Them's pa's pa and ma, grampa n' gramma Caldwell. Jist look at her feet! All her folks toes in - even pa, some, but he denies it. Grampa's got a turribul temper. Onct he was up in a tree a-sawin' out limbs and a little branch scratched him onto his head and he turned round quick's a wink, a-snarlin', and bit it right smack off. Fact!
The month when children slam the doors they left open all winter.
When you ride bumper to bumper to get to the beach where you sit the same way.
The kind of weather where everything that is supposed to stick together comes apart,and everything that is supposed to stay apart sticks together.
Horace Downing was 80 years old and had sold all his
milkers he spent several years of his retirement as the
Beartown representative to Montpelier. Within the first
few days of the session Horace was invited to a banquet
honoring a US Senator.
