2 r The Journal, Thursday, Deeember 11, 1975 - S by Gone Orchard A few months ago a young artist took top honors with a song he wrote called "Back Home Again." Each time I hear the song it seems to tell the story of the life of my wonderful husband and me, because we have had to say so long for a while to the little town of Ripley and our little farm that we love so very dearly. As most of you know in May of this year my husband received orders to Port Hueneme, Calif., where he was in charge of the disaster recovery de- partment and although we have never cared for California, we thought as per usual we would adjust. But with each day we hated being there. Know- ing each time our daughter left for school that a number of things could happen to her even in broad daylight. This and many more things made Ripley and home look even better than it ever had before. So my husband asked for orders out of California. And since there aren't many Seabee units, the nearest assignment he could get was near Chicago, Ill., where he is over the Seabee reserve training unit. It's near enough to home for him to drive home over long weekends and holi- days. I and our daughter remained here in Ripley so 1 can look after our farm and hopefully have every- thing in order when my husband retires in 26 more months. And our daughter is in seventh Heaven to be back in Ripley School. So, for all of us, it's great to be "Back Home Agafn," to stay. --Winter is Here?-- One could never tell that this is really winter time except for the falling leaves. The beautiful weather we are having has given several people spring fever in November and Decem- ber. The Ripley Cafe has a new paint job of red, white, and blue. Also getting a new paint job are the buildings where the wes- tern dances are held and the building that houses Bill's Grocery. The F.H.A. boys went all over town picking up and cleaning up. Several are getting their trees trimmed and cleaning their yards and getting their gardens plowed under. The Roseires, Jr. are working on getting their / "/5 SUZUKI I SALE 10% Above ealer's Cost rn house remodeled. The Bob Hammacks spent last week paneling and putting down carpet in the children's bedroom. The Bob Davises are painting the kitchen. The Keith Teitz are coming along nicely on their remodeling of their farm house. The Phillyss got some" work done on the inside of the laundry room and repairs on the carport. - The Herb Shoups.have a pipeline going all along the. highway and their way. If everyone is this busy now, boy we better standby for spring. --School Aetiviti~-- On Nov. 26 the Annual Alumni Banquet was held at the Ripley School. There were 96 present. Ripley is hosting the basketball tournament this week. The annual senior slave sale will be coming up in the near future --Street8 In N~l-- I know the county trucks are very busy. but I m hoping in the near future that Mr. Cruzan can work our streets in for a few repairs, as there are several deep, dangerous holes on the bus route, especially on Asp Street. And the rest of the streets are full of holes, as well, but I feel sure they will be fixed soon. --Fire Call-- || aln So don't forget the fire meeting Dec. 8 at 7 p.m. in the fire house. --Tid Bits-- A Happy Anniversary to Frances and Danny Kin- kade. Also, Betty and Ronnie Roe. A Happy Birthday to a handsome young man, Chuck Hammack, who became four years old Dec, 3 and I got a big kiss when I presented his gift of a Spalding Baseball which he says is like the "Weel", ball players have. Oh yes, fellows and gals, I have a couple of names for you to check off your want list. First is the pretty young lady who's left hand is all ready for christmas with a beautiful engagement ring.
