Red Hatters

The weather report is looking good for Oct. 31—64° and mostly sunny—a great day for Red Hatters to take a little trip to Tecumseh.

The Morenci Millinery Mavens of the Red Hat Society will view the free outdoor sculpture exhibit, “Art Trail Tecumseh,” and have lunch at the British Pantry on Friday, Halloween.

For this event, prizes will be awarded to the best Halloween-themed red hat.

A car pool will leave the library Friday, Oct. 31, at 10 a.m. Sign up at the library or call 458-6510.

Trash or Treasure

Somewhere in your house there must be some old thing that you’ve wondered about. Is that worth anything?

Plan to find out at 7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 6, when Stair Public Library brings in Larry and Theresa Nelson of Tecumseh’s Hitching Post Antiques Mall.

The program will be conducted in an open format for an “Antique Roadshow”-like program. There won’t be private consultations; Larry will comment on individual objects that audience members bring in.

Each person may bring three objects small enough for one person to carry. There won’t be room for furniture and there may not be time to evaluate all items.

Used Book Sale

It’ll be here before we know it, so start getting ready—for the Friends of Stair Public Library Used Book Sale.

The sale is scheduled Nov. 12 to 14, Wednesday through Friday, during the library’s regular hours: Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Thursday and Friday 1 to 5 p.m.

Volunteers are needed to help during two hour shifts; sign up at the library or call 458-6510.

Donations of books will be accepted at the library only during regular hours.

Potluck and Author Chat

Observant readers noticed last week that no date was given for the Italian Potluck before the “Very Valentine” speakerphone chat with author Adriana Trigiani.

Both events are scheduled Monday, Nov. 17. The potluck begins at 6 p.m., the chat starts at 7.

Everyone in the community is invited to attend the chat, but reservations are requested for the potluck to help with planning.

Participants are encouraged to try a new recipe from Trigiani’s cookbook, “Cooking with My Sisters,” but old favorites can also be used.

Call the library to reserve a copy of “Very Valentine.”

  • Front.tug
    MORENCI pep rallies generally end with a tug of war. The senior class entry, shown above, did not advance to the finals. Griffin Grieder, Alaina Webster, Kyle Long and Jazmin Smith are shown at the front of the rope, giving it their best effort.
  • Accident
    FAYETTE resident Patricia Stambaugh, 64, was declared dead on the scene of a single-vehicle accident Friday morning south of Morenci. Rescue units were called around 9 a.m., but as of Tuesday, law enforcement officers had not yet determined the time of the accident. According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, Stambaugh was driving west on U.S. 20 when her Chevrolet Malibu traveled off the north side of the road and down a steep embankment, coming to rest in Bean Creek (Tiffin River).
  • Athletic Fields
    SPORTS COMPLEX—Fayette’s outdoor athletic facilities will include three ball fields for summer recreation leagues at the southwest corner of the school. The baseball and softball fields, along with the running track, will be constructed on the east side of the school. Outdoor athletic fields were not part of the new school project from 2007, but voters approved a $1.4 million levy for a school addition and the sports fields last August. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by July 20.

  • Station.2
    STRANGE STUFF—Morenci Elementary School students learn that blue isn’t really blue when seen through the right color of lens. Volunteer April Pike presents the lesson to students at one of the many stations brought to the school by the COSI science center. The theme of this year’s visit was the solar system.
  • Front.poles
    MOVING EAST—Utility workers continue their slow progress east along U.S. 20 south of Morenci. New electrical poles are put in place before wiring is moved into place.
