I have ''er seen or heard the program but suppose I will make a effort to find it sometime.

She does have a bit of difficulty walking. Some will remember when her husband, "Mr. Meyerton" as she always speaks of him, owned the Kimball Creamery. Who remembers the date - at least the year - that the creamery burned down? Annette Liedman and I were talking about it a few days ago and neither of us could venture a guess. The creamery had been a big business in Kimball and was quite a loss to the community. Downtown sections of communites everywhere are losing businesses and there are many empty buildings on main streets. I had heard that Litchfield has had a great many of these losses and as we drove through town Sunday I was still surprised to see so many of them. Everyone seems to want to locate their businesses on the outskirts of towns and cities. I was delighted to hear that our Kimball Chiropractic Clinic is going to move from the location on Highway 55 downtown to the building formerly occupied by the dental clinic.
