1974 Freeman Miller's Mule

74 0130 01
January 30, 1974
Freeman Miller had no concern for fuel prices, as the mule he used to plow gardens also provided his transportation. When Police Chief A. J. Posey wrote a ticket for parking on the wrong side of the street, Freeman explained that it was the mule's idea. Miller, Posey, and all standing out of camera range had a good laugh. Alas, in 2009, there's hardly any mules in town. Will the recession give us another thought about mule-power?

Others that week: Junior 4-H, 3rd grade mural and bulletin board, Defender Rehabilitation program by Coueys and Kight, a new house, Mrs. Edge's class visit the printing plant, 6-7 grade Social Science Fair, and many basketball photos.
