Library's Talk @ Two continues 9.24

Written by David Green.

Discussion topics continue to flow from those who attend the Talk @ Two group on Thursdays at Stair Public Library—including possible subjects for discussion at tomorrow’s meeting.

What improvements would you like to see in Morenci? What is your favorite thing about Morenci? In what ways are you influenced by the media?

Some of those who attended last week are also planning to write up—in a few sentences to a page—their life philosophy, what they believe spiritually, their outlook on life, the “core values that guide their daily lives” as thisibelieve.org puts it. It’s not necessary to write an essay like the “This I Believe” ones that air on National Public Radio—it’s not necessary to write anything at all.

The discussion will continue to be flexible and spontaneous—maybe the topics above won’t get off the ground and the group will continue to talk about the proper way to peel a carrot.

The discussion will last about an hour and then participants can socialize or try out Wii sports games afterward.

All area adults are welcome to join the group where the emphasis is discussing ideas in a friendly atmosphere.

For more information, call the library at 458-6510 or stop in during regular hours.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
