He was selected as the local chapter winner according to Jack Lambert, local chapter chairman, Scott Will Ions Tom Klocek Jr. and his grandparents, Dale and Virginia niff, admire the tree planted when Klocek was in grade school. A sixth-grader/s twig has grown into collegian's tall, sturdy tree "See the tree, how big it's grown, but friend it hasn't been too long it wasn't big. I laughed at her and she got mad the first day that she planted it, it was just a twig...." By KAREN MEIS Staff Writer Although Bobby Goldsboro didn't have Arbor Day in mind when singing of trees and lost loves in the late 1960s, the lyrics may very well apply to a young Salinan's experience with a tree planted in his grandparents' yard six years ago. As sixth grade students at Franklin Elementary School in 1979, Tom Klocek Jr. and his classmates were given the opportunity to select their own trees in observance of Arbor Day. Klocek took advantage of the offer, which was part of a citywide effort to encourage the planting of trees for the beautification of Salina. Klocek found himself the owner of a honey locust tree but had no place to plant it. His mother was recently divorced and rented property, so Klocek had no permanent place to call home. And thus no per- manent yard in which to plant a tree. It was then that Dale and Virginia lUff came to their grandson's rescue. The tree was planted in the front yard of their home at 817 Sheridan. "They did it to make me happy, and it did," Klocek said. "It made me happy to have a place to put it." The tree, which Klocek said was "no higher than a poinsettia" when it was planted, now is taller than his grandparents' house. Both he and his grandparents are surprised at the quick growth of the tree, not to mention that it is still alive. "We gave it plenty of care — and lots and lots of water. We never gave up on that tree," Diff said. However, "Tom's tree" (as it is referred to by Mrs. Hiff) has suffered a few minor casualties. Its top was once blown off by wind, and Hiff once cut off a limb that his wife said "broke her heart" because it was "perfect for shade." Klocek, now an 18-year-old freshman at Barton County Community College in Great Bend, said, "It is kind of special how something that small grew into something so big. It is like life. Our prospects can broaden as we go through life, just as the tree branches out in various directions. I only hope I can be as successful as that tree has been." Salina.
