SEXTON - Just a* It seemed, Sexton was about to become AX* tinch sptlng brought a population .and a building boom. If the past month Is any Indication the town will soon be bade to if s little city class again. Newest families to take a chance on really living are Mr. and Mrs. Leo Thomsen who moved into Mrs. Nick Krleps lovely home, the Thomsons have two college-age daughters which should also add a little class to the area, Mr. Thomsen is manager of the elevator and can now give up those cold lunches at noon since he Is just down the block from home. Mr, and Mrs. Al Wlttmus and four children have moved into the Schraut home on the blacktop, These youngsters are Just the right age to Join the rest of the little ones in town in pointing out the need for extreme caution on the part of drivers now that school is out, Mr, and Mrs. Clair Hovey have completed the move to the Sexton store but are still a long way from completing the remodeling of the building, - o- Sairi Miller is still doing the best job of "getting things done" for besides farming his new home west of Sexton is going up In a hurry, To be added to the fast building group are the Art Kleins east of town who managed to put up a nice new -garage beside their home and get a coat of paint on it before anyone noticed what they were up to. But a couple of fellows looking the town over last week were the biggest surprise when with completely sober faces they announced they were here for a motel chain and were considering Sexton as the sight of their newest addition I Haven't decided what they were planning on for entertainment for their guests in this fair city as there aren't many tourist attractions. Although with the advent of the first warm weather the Sexton sunbathers club reopened but Sexton residents were hoping the club would die out before any new members joined. If s pretty hard to believe big city folks would go for what passes for local entertainment, like the big crowd that turned out to watch Art Hix plow up his sweet corn catch. Our best bet for a new industry still seems to be the well drilling at the Don PeCoy's house. At last report they had struck gold but the vein; wasn't rich enough to be profitable, now the only hope is having oil come In and it shouldn't be much deeper than they are by now. After the number of serious ailments of the past month, Sexton residents are beginning to eye their neighbor and wonder which • one next, The latest visitor at the hospital was Mrs. New Extension Assistant lovely, what's your secret?
