The Shelbina City Council reviewed the City Improvement project during its regular meeting held last Tuesday, Nov. 22 at the Shelbina City Hall.
   City Improvement
   Shelbina City Clerk Tim Lacy reported that the meter replacement project is about 80 percent of the way done, with the exception of the big gas meters that need to be replaced and a couple two inch meters and a one inch meter that has to be replaced. Shelbina City Superintendent Dennis Klusmeyer said they actually had finished the gas meter replacement that day.
   They actually went through town and did a first reading, to work out the kinks.
   Lacy said the street light crew is about three-fourths of the way done. Lacy explained that the count for street lights was 51 short for what they thought was public lighting. He said if the City wanted to purchase those additional 51 lights, it would be at a cost of approximately $35,000. He said there never was a very accurate count on the street lights. Klusmeyer suggested that the City have them change out anything from the quadrant they are working on that isn’t on the street. “If it’s back in a driveway, just don’t change it. We can probably get by with finishing the rest of the street lights with what they have in stock. We (the City) can slide out there and do the lake and golf course out of our lights,” he explained.

Making a Difference for Others

Dee Ide was running an air stapler for the first time this year. She does something new each year.

Making a positive difference for others is always a good thing, and for two Shelbina ladies, they have been doing just that for quite a while.
   Margaret Gilbert and Dee Ide went on a mission trip for a week in October with the Christian Missourians United for Missions organization. They were two of 28 people from Missouri to participate in this trip.
   They traveled to a place in Oklahoma that used to be a Baptist camp that had enough beds for 400 kids. An individual purchased it and took it over. It now has Cherokee families living on the land. It’s located in the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma.
   Margaret spent her time sewing while Dee did a variety of things.
   Margaret loves sewing and does it a lot. This is something that she does very well and she knows it’s something she can do to help make a difference in other people’s lives.
   For the full story, see this week’s issue of the Shelbina Weekly.

Margaret Gilbert said one of her favorite parts of going on the Mission Trips to Oklahoma is that everyone so nice. At 90-years of age, she still makes the trip and does a lot of sewing for those in need.  8516
