Amy and Rory Youngpeter

You grew up in CG, right? Or technically, you were a "country kid". Did you always live on the family farm where your parents live now?

Technically, I am from just outside of Rimer. My parents live on the family farm that has been passed down for generations since the 1870~Ac^a'not^a"cs. For a short time we moved to ~Ac^a'notA"town~Ac^a'not^A

Bluffton card decks...going...going...


If you've not yet purchased a Bluffton Area Chamber of Commerce playing card desk, act now or forever hold your peace.

The popular holiday item at only $5 a deck may disappear quicker than you can say 2010. The deck was the brainchild of Melinda Bowden of PromoHits! The Main Street company sold 52 businesses their own "card." Then, when the decks were printed, PromoHits! donated over 300 sets to the chamber as a fund raiser.

Too much Julie and Julia

Reprinted from http://steinermp.wordpress.com/

It's funny how books can influence my activities. Not funny ha ha, but funny strange....but that's a whole other blog topic. Anyway, Anne gave me Julie and Julia for Christmas, so I'm determined to finish the book before I watch the movie. Besides, Lindsay says the book is much better than the movie, so I figure I'll enjoy the best first.


2010 village general fund "only" $2.1 million

Gone are those large village projects:

  • the $1 million Main Street waterline
  • the Main Street streetscape project
  • the $2.5 million town hall renovation
  • the multi-million water tower projects
  • the Ottawa waterline project

It appears 2010 is a "breather" year for the Village of Blfufton budget. Bluffton council okayed its 2010 budget on Dec. 28. The general fund total is $2,138,316. That's lower than the 2009 general fund budget of $2,331,215.
