Notes on notes More notes on notes. As I've mentioned many times betbre I make notes of possible story ideas and when I get enough of them. That is ifI can make sense of them. I write another column.

A guy's got to be careful. So I smoke a pipe. Actually I smoke matches as a pipe is always go- ing out. I figure for every pound of tobacco I smoke I go through two pounds of matches and so far there haven't been any warnings about matches being harm- ful to my well being. fiom their products along with some cash.

If you act now we will even send you a matching T-shirt and jogging shorts with our company's logo prominently displayed. You will be the envy and center of attraction of other sports and health minded people as you purchase an- other carton or two of our product. I'd write more. But I just discovered that I just ran out of matches. I wonder if this catalog has a deal on matches and how many match books would I have to send in? Have a good one!

March Manure Madness Every Saturday through- out the month of March, the Kiwanis will give away ma- nure, supplied by the Pahr- ump Dairy. Valley Rock has donated the use of 5 trucks and driv- ers for those who do not wish to haul their manure themselves. Donations are appreci- ated but not required. Proceeds from this and other Kiwanis fund raisers go to help the community. The diary has even offered to match whatever funds the Kiwanis bring in, ac- cording to member Jean Buckingham,. it is a good possibility that they will match the full 10,000 dob lars. According to 31 year member Robert Bell, the Kiwanas are involved in just about anything that goes on. They are involved in "No to Abuse," a non-profit or- ganization aimed to prevent domestic violence. They support the High School Glee Club. Also they will help fund a "young man's" trip to Europe, where he will be an ambassador to Europe.
