BOX JUST A LINE MORE (From Page 1) Burton Coate, who owned the house 18 years before we bought it, said he was not aware of a skeleton, so it was evidently disposed of after Finley left home. Does anyone recall when the house was built? We've heard it was built by the person who owned the town's lumber yard. There have been a lot of people work on our house since the day in early spring we stood outside in a heavy coat with a painter, the last snow of winter was falling, and found out that it was going to cost more than we had anticipated to do what we wanted to do. Steen and Riden did the outside painting, Mike Thompson of Ripley put on the nearly 50 squares of shingles plus the tar and gravel on the flat roof. Howard Rollins and his wife did the painting, papering and ceiling work inside. Tryon Lumber Co. was low bidder on the storm windows for the 44 windows in the house. Claude Gazaway installed them. Paint, wallpaper and other odds and ends came from Olson Hardware and Perkins Paint Supply. Pogue Plumb- ing worked over the under- side and valves. Perkins Plumbing installed the hot water tank and disposal. Melvin Sager rewired the house; Shorts Carpet and Tile did the tile work; the carpet was bought and installed by Himes-Mathe- son Carpet; Bert Dodson did the paneling and interior finish work, etc., and Johnny Payne's crew lowered some ceilings. The draperies were done by Margaret Fresh and son Roger Graham. The light fixtures came from Harrison Lighthouse, numerous panes of glass and mirrors from the Lee Co. And so it goes. There have been many weekends of the family working scraping windows, unpacking boxes, hanging pictures, mowing the yard, trimming shrubbery, clean- ing the garage (3 different times), etc. But we're finally finding an evening or two and even a Sunday afternoon where we can sit down for more than 15 minutes at a time. If you've never tried to re-do an old house, you ought to do it once. If you've done it once -- that's enough! XXXX Many of you who voted in our Telephone Poll feature in The Journal this week no doubt found the "Yes" telephone number with a busy signal. A reader called to tell us about it Sunday. The telephone company fixed it Monday morning and promises it won't happen again. We're sorry for the inconvenience and please vote again. This was a mechanical thing that shouldn't happen often.
