There are some disadvan- tages, but there are far more advantages of small town life. One advantage that sticks out in my mind of living in a small community, is good neighbors. I know that I have wonderful neighbors. Not everyone is as lucky as I am, to have such nice next-door company. Anyone can be a neighbor, but it takes someone caring to be a good neighbor. Like those snowy winters when a friendly neighbor plows you out ofy ur driveway, expecting nothing in return. And those nice talks through the fence, when passing by a neighbors yard. Or, the tlme you were Ill, and a neighbor brought you a meal to help you out. Sharing garden vegetables at a picnic next door, is also a good neighbor trend. It's little deeds like these that touch your heart, and let you know that your neighbors care about you. : So next time you leave your home and see your neighbor, say "hello" Or talkwlth them if you have the time. Show them a little kindness, and I guarantee you will get some in return. You may even find a friendship that you never knew was there. There are many advantages of a small community, and good neighbors are Just one of them. The ruffed grouse beats its wings at such a speed as to create s sonic boom.

Joe Baron, representing the Sundance Kiwanis Club, told the council the group wants to apply for a Teal grant from the Wyoming Transportation Dept. for funds to improve the walking path along Sundance Creek. He said the Kiwanis Club would like to pave the path as it currently exists and also has long-term plans to extend the path. Baron said the paving project would probably cost $40,000-$50,000 and would not be done until late summer or early fall in 1997. Baron said grant funds would cover 80 percent of the cost but local funds would be needed for the balance of the cost. He asked the city to be the primary sponsor for the project. As sponsor, the city would need to provide in cash 20 percent of the cosL The mayor told Baron that the city has its own application in for grant funds for its downtown proJecL The council agreed to be the pri- mary sponsor for the Kiwanis project but went ahead and gave first priority to its downtown curb, gutter and lighting project.

Pleaser some people, but the Forest Service does mitigate exploration and extraction. For instance, only 2 or 3 would be perm/tted open at one time and when the work is done, must be rehabil/tated.
