Verna Kirchhoff Editor: Thank you for your kind article in The Express on Bob's popcorn nights Bob was paralyzed, everything on his right side. because of a birth injury. Bob had a sweet personality and later lived many happy',years in the nursing home there. Our father worked as a foreman at tim cement plant for more than 30 years. I also have many wonderful memo- ries of Saturday nights on Main Street in the late 1030s. My father would go down early and park the family autombile in front of the stores. Then my mother and we children would later walk down. My mother'would sit in the car and friends would come by to sit and visit during the evening. All of the stores were brightly lit and we loved to look at the jewelry in Hested's" Dime Store and the beautiful dresses in the back of Penney's. Then we would walk up and down the street with fl'iends, stopping at a drug store on one side of the street for strawberry or grape sodas 'Wild Babies" and "Purple Cows") Across the street was Knothe' s drug store with mugs of root beer 2 for a nickel?? Surely not!) Superior was a wonderful place for a child to grow up in. In the years since.

Norma (Oglevie) Harrington Editor: Dear Comrades and Citizens of Ne- braska, As many of you know Nebraska has lost four more of its sons in Afghani- stan in the past few weeks.

I hope you find it in your heart to give to this missmn. Thank you in advance. Michael Dunn District 13 Cmdr V.F.W. Nebraska Editor: I am enclosing a small donation for the renovation of the Superior Audito- rium. Will you see that it is delivered? It's a goodidea to get the audito- rium back into usable condition. There is much history and many memories in that old building. I remember the "Big Band" dances, Donkey Basketball, prize fights and many more activities. Also my high school graduation was held there in 1947. Elaine Towne Editor: I came home more than an hour ago from a Superior City Council meeting held in a room much too small for all those who wanted to attend and hear the discussion on the Superior City Audito- rium. If it had been held in the audito- rium, with the members of the council facing the audience those who wanted to see and hear could been better able to respond to comments made, Even as the room filled to overflowing and a fan was brought to keep the heat down, an old friend pushed her way in and said. "What are you doin' here Ivalee?" i i I imagine several who know me wondered what I was doing there. I belong in Nelson trying to help save our little town which I have done for years. But after hearing what I could in Supe- rior, I want to speak up. But I wasn't prepared and was afraid I would forget much of what I wanted tO say. At one time didn't the people of Superior think it was a good plan to store emergency supplies in the audito- rium? Something like happened to Joplin and Greensburg may happen here. Why act like Las Vegas? Tear down something good just to replace it with something a bit more showy. The audi- tormm is a beautiful building put there when Franklin Roosevelt saw a need to create jobs. Our present President sees the need but keeps holding back for more time before he will reveal his plan. Time is precious when families and children are hungry and bills need to be paid. I attended a celebration for an old friend not long ago and he remarked to me, "How did your uncle make a liv- ing?" I was only 10 when we moved to Superior but I thought about that ques- tion. In the days before electricity, we had no utility bills to pay every month The WPA built an outside toilet which was prett) nice on our farm. My morn had a garden and sold vegetables to Dick Stephenson. In those years crops didn't grow on the dryland like they do now and the grasshoppers covered the wood posts from top to bottom. We learned to save. not to "'print more money" like I heard suggested on a recent television program I got a telephone call from the NRA wanting $175. The guy was pretty shook up when he said. the UN is wanting to mvolve itself in helping our govern- ment control guns and ammunition and Hillary Clinton is in agreement. Whoa! I wouldn't shoot a" gun but plenty more are ready and willing. I'd hate to see our people give tip that right and end Vestey Senior Meals Program Aug. 29 through Sept. : Monday: Goulash, lettuce green beans, Jell-O parfait, bread, melon.
