June 9% There was a birthday party at Monty Joe and Vicki Rob- erts' to help her celebrate. She arrived leaning on Smitty's arm and being supported by a cane, though everyone laughed that Ina Kay Labrier out did her by com- ing with her walker. Guess it just depends on where you are on the age scale! Mostly family members attended, but Janice Smith and Nora Like did come by for the hamburgers and cake! Happy Birthday Diane!

Comments We have in Kenton few people; there are 24 residents in the town itself and even when you include the ones that think of Kenton as home because it is the nearest JUNE 1 3, 2001 town it is still not many. People the same tone of voice again that raise families here see them grow up and move off because of lack of real employment. Each year we dwindle a bit more. We lose more and more of the young and the old. I can hear the groans now; "oh no he is on about this again." It is time to act on this or to fade into another place like Wheeless, Moses, Seneca, Guy and so many others. Kenton is unique; it has potential that is be- ing wasted. It has opportunities right now that may not be avail- able in the future. I have seen this community pull together as a com- munity despite differences in state lines, politics and religion. For the good of all and for a continuation of Kenton's existence we need to do so again. Change, as I have so often said, is coming. Whether it is from outside or a fading out to nothing from continued loss of population, we need to address this now while we can control our own fate.

He got here by making the wrong turn out of Boise City I suppose. He was a young man in his late 20's to early 30's He pulled up in front of the merc in his sports car, stepped out and looked around. He didn't look happy. One of the lo- cals was sitting on the steps out- side enjoying the weather and the greenness of the scenery. The lost man asked the local in a demand- ing tone of voice "Where am I?" "Kenton" was the reply. The lost man looked around again and in THE BOISE CITY NEWS PAGE 5 asked, "Just how far away from anything civilized am I?" The lo- cal man looked at him then at the sports car, then back to the man again. "Oh about 30 years I reckon." CONGRESSMAN FRANK D. LUCAS Sixth Congressional District, Oklahoma Lucas statement on McVeigh Washington, D.C.- U.S. Sixth District Congressman Frank Lucas made this statement Mon- day following the execution of Timothy McVeigh: "'My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families on this day, with the hope that they can continue the healing process from their loss, knowing that the man that mur- dered their loved ones has been brought to justice. It is my hope that now those who were wronged can begin a new chapter in the healing pro- cess, secure in the knowledge that Timothy McVeigh will never kill again. I have no doubt that a just sentence has been carried out to- day, and that the person respon- sible for this terrible crime against the citizens of Oklahoma has been brought to justice. I have supported capital pun- ishment in both the Oklahoma state house and as a member of Congress. There is no better ex- ample of the need for a death pen- alty than Timothy McVeigh." Facts: The Murrah Building was in Lucas district, as is the bombing memorial. Lucas' Oklahoma City district office was only a few blocks from the Murrah, and was damaged in the blast. Lucas sponsored the legisla- tion to get a c!osed circuit cam- era for victims families to watch the Oklahoma City bombing trial in Denver. Lucas was instrumental in get- ting the funding-authorization for the downtown.revitalization, as well as the funding for the bombing memorial The cooling capacity of an air conditioner is measured in BTUs or British Thermal Units.

And your interest. Newspapers don't read them- selves, you know. I! tares two, a newspaper and you. That's why newspaper is such a powerful advertising medium. It requires your full attention.and complete concentration. The radio can be playing to nobody in particular, and the TV can be on in an empty room. But when people turn to their paper, they turn there with interest. Which means that's where your advertising message needs to be. With all the choices available, it's difficult deciding how best to advertise your business. But everything becomes a little simpler when you remember one rule. | EO. Box 278 105 W.
