Here are the identities of the Mystery Warriors: #1 – Margo MacDonald, #2 – Marilyn Busselle and #3 – Mike Hines. Mickey Emmons was the only one to properly identify #1 - Margo. Mouse was the only one to ID #2 - Marilyn, and Margo was the only on who knew Mike was #3.
         

Hopefully, we can do better with the buildings.

Sandra Dodson thought it would be fun to see how many of these old buildings the class could ID. This is not a contest. The last time Sandra submitted a pic, we held our inaugural “Who Dat Warrior” contest, which she won. Click for pic

A comment left on Fallen Warrior Ann Mayton’s bio page on the Central Web site.

 

Thank you for printing this. I am one of Ann's younger brothers. She loved her years at Central and all the people. We really miss her. She adopted my family with full force. We had five daughters and two granddaughters for her to pamper and spoil. Often I think we had the household of girls just for her. She was the best sister to me also. I shall always be grateful. She lived with a lot of energy and love. I hope to keep that legacy alive.

HELPFUL HINTS    From Smoke Signals’ HOMES editor - Mike Blackwell

Newspaper weeds away

Start putting in your plants, work the nutrients in your soil. Wet newspapers put layers around the plants overlapping as you go cover with mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening plastic they will not get through wet newspapers.

HENRY’S CORNER

Speaking of The Fortune Cookie, We were, weren’t we? The 1966 Billy Wilder hit comedy was the inaugural appearance of one of the greatest comedy pairings since Martin and Lewis, Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. The plot revolvesaround a CBS cameraman, Lemmon, who receives a minor injury while shooting a pro football game. His shyster attorney, brother in law, Matthau conspires with him to sue the network, claiming total paralysis of his legs.Lemmon turned down Jackie

Gleason and Frank Sinatra who had been proposed to him, choosing instead the stoic, talented Matthau. During the filming, Matthau suffered a heart attackand subsequently lost 30 pounds. After a week’s shutdown, filming resumed with Matthau wearing a bulky coat to conceal the weight loss.

 

Memphis, with the headquarters of shipping giant FedEx Corp., is the world’s busiest airport for cargo.

 

Money isn't made out of paper; it's made out of cotton.

 

In addition to the Great Wall of China, the Pyramids, airports and other massive structures are visible from the moon. Also, reportedly the 2200-acre Fresh Kills solid waste landfill, America’s largest landfill, in Staten Island, N.Y. can also be seen.
