CAKE DECORATING: A select few Fayette area residents will soon learn cake decorating techniques from a professional.

The next public class sponsored by Normal Memorial Library will be taught by local cake decorator Kristy Clouse. The class is limited to the first 10 people who register.

Students will need to bring six to 12 cupcakes to the class. Anyone with decorator tip and bags can bring them along, too. Clouse will supply the frosting and various decorations.

The class is scheduled at 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 16, at the library. The cost is $10. To register, call the library or stop in at the circulation desk.

    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.
