The town board has enjoyed Gary's attendance of- ten at our monthly meetings, and his attention is always ap- preciated. In conversation with Gary, I have learned that the complex- ity of county issues today sim- ply requires a sizable period of "learning the ropes". If we con- tinually rotate a commissioner every four years, then all the groundwork accomplished dur- ing the first term is gone. Gary has nearly completed his first term, and is now ready to con- tinue on with invaluable expe- rience, possibly accomplishing far greater tasks then his first term. Remember to get out and vote August 10 in the primary. I am in full support of both incumbent commissioners making re-election and keep- ing the momentum already in place. My direct involvement with the Lincoln County Eco- nomic Development Corpora- tion has shown me what poten- tial this county has for eco- nomic diversification. In other words, I'm excited to imagine the new jobs and businesses that are possible in our future while preserving our rural agricultural heritage. Rest assured that on August 10 1 will be marking my ballot to re-elect Gary Beedy for commissioner.

I feel like I should be baling the grass in my yard instead of mow- ing it. But believe me I'm not complaining about the rain. Looks like we are going to be able to start the work on the Rail- road Park earlier than we planned. Green Horizons of Flagler will start getting rid of the grass and weeds this week. Then install an underground sprinkler system, and replant thegrass. Even though it isn't going to be very attractive for awhile; once it is all done it will look better than it ever has. Don't forget about the free swim night Friday, luly 30 from 5:50 to 8:30 p.m. for teenagers in graduating classes of 2003 thru 2009.

Big news, the fair dance sponsored by the Hugo Volunteer Fire Department will have Kern Ann with Brush Fire performing Saturday night from 9 p.m. until 1 a.m. in the fair building. This should be a great time for all. Proceeds benefit the Hugo Vol- unteer Fire Department. The swimming pool will close for the season on Friday, August 13, as many of our staff need to start back to school. Genoa-Hugo School starts on August 18. The Hugo Volunteer Fire De- partment will hold their annual auction on August 28 in the area behind the Railroad Park. This auc- tion is a major fund-raisers for our volunteer fire department. Items for the auction may be donation or on consignment. Let's all support the great work our volunteers do. Okay a little soap box ttme ...... we have got to work to- gether and support our local busi- nesses. They are the ones everyone turns to for donations for all the various activities m our town. If you don't support them, they can not support the local activities. For ev- ery dollar you spend in Hugo, two cents of the sales tax goes to the town of Hugo. It all adds up, and support forour town goes both ways. u on ! onCes$ A=S==# 13 & 16 Sponsored by FIRST NATIONAL OF HUGO-LIMON Rules 1.
