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.

    THE MAYOR—Cecil Schoonover poses with a collection of garden gnomes that mysteriously arrive and disappear from his property. Along with the gnomes, someone created the sign stating that he is the Mayor of Gnomesville. He hasn’t yet tracked down the people involved in the prank, but he’s having a good time with the mystery.

    TAKE A BREAK—Last Wednesday’s session of Stair District Library’s Summer Reading Program ended with a quiet period in a class presented by yoga instructor Melany Gladieux of Toledo. Children learned a variety of yoga poses in the main room at the library, then finished off the session relaxing. Additional photos are on page 7. Area children are invited to visit the library today when the Michigan Science Center presents a flight program at 11 a.m. and roller coasters at 1 p.m.
