Just joking! Squire front page all good fun


Thanks to everyone who took the time to comment on last week’s April Fool issue, featuring a fake front page.

There are no wind turbines at the tannery, no State Police trooper cars in potholes, under trees or damaged by rockslides.

Thanks to our new State Police Post Commander Chris McIntire (see story above) who brought in his remote control vehicle for our photos of the spring driving hazards.

It was fun driving around with the toy car thinking of things to do to it. It almost experienced a flood, but I wondered if water would damage the toy and didn’t want to make the post commander mad at me this soon after our first meeting.

As always, our graphic designer, Melanie Ragsdale, did the “high tech” entertainment on her computer. Cliff Hill took the original tannery picture from in a tree.
