Winslow Patoka River is still low but with not much rain, it will proba- bly stay low, unless they release some water from Patoka Lake. I've heard that it's high. The air conditioners are still on with the temps in the high 80s to low 90s, but the humidity is in the muggy range. I mentioned we had rain showers last Tuesday that lasted about one hour. We had wind along with the rain but in Illinois along Route 15, they had bad storms that brought up warn- ings and watches. To start off August events, there was the Oakland City Sweet Corn Festival and the Zoar Mosquito Fest. Norm and I were asked if we would like to go get some ice cream from Dee and, of course, I said, "yes." So, we drove to the Sweet Corn Fest, where the Winslow Masons were set up and their flavors were strawberry on a cone but mine was strawberry and mint chip in a cup. We saw Jerry, Rosella and some of the Masons whose names I can't re- member, then we saw Terry McGre- gor, who was seated with the stars run- ning for office. There we met Michael McGregor, who was running for office. Melvin was there and we saw Steve and Amy, and some Winslow stars, Oakland City Lion Mr. Lefler and listened to some fine music. Kayna and Laura stopped by for about an hour or so. Kyana has already start- ed school on August 1 and meeting some new friends. That flower that popped up and it has three pink blooms on a stem with no leaves, I have seen more around the town, but I have no idea what it is called. The Winslow Community Cen- ter has one blooming also. Our Winslow Community Festival meetings are going well, so if your group, organization, or if you would like to join in on all the fun that will be happening, then come to our meetings. Vendors who want to set up your 10x10 spaces for $10 can purchase one form any Winslow Beautification Commit- tee member. The Frozen T-Shirt con- test will be back this year. Your plac- es to have that family fun are at Riv- erside Park, Center Street and Main Street. There will be shuttles from both places. My mother, Mildred, will be here for about one month, going from one fam- ily reunion to another family reunion. Terri Ann will also be here some of those days. More information is com- ing on the Poehlein 78th Reunion next week. So, as the lights begin to dim on this week, keep an eye on family and friends, slow down and see what your area has in store for your eyes, stop for school buses and the children get- ting on and off. Then, always smile, wave and say hi to everyone you see this week. Vectren: Don't forget to call 811 before you dig August 11 served as a reminder to al- ways call 811 before digging. One free call to 811 can prevent injuries, proper- ty damage and service disruption "On this day and throughout the year, we continue to remind homeown- ers and professional contractors alike to call 811 before digging to eliminate the risk of striking an underground utility line," Ashley Babcock, direc- tor of Damage Prevention and Pub- lic Awareness for Vectren, a Center- Point Energy company. "The cause of many underground utility damages is not digging properly. The only physi- cal way to know what's below is to call and have the buried utilities in your ar- ea of excavation marked. Not only is it a free call and service, it is also the law." By calling 811, a homeowner con- nects to a One Call Center, which then notifies the appropriate utility compa- nies of the homeowner's intent to dig. Professional locators are sent to the re- quested digging site to mark the ap- proximate locations of underground lines with flags and spray paint, en- abling the homeowner to dig safely. The depth of utility lines varies and there may be multiple utility lines in a common area. Whether it is a small proj- ect like planting a tree, or a larger one such as hiring a professional to install a lawn irrigation system, smart digging means calling 811 before each job.
