The city park is really taking shape. A big shout out goes to Bobby Naylor for his assistance overseeing the disposal of excess debris and trash from where the new lot was cleared.
The playground purchased for the park is in Bolivar and will be installed soon. Mayor Beshires and town aldermen are in the process of planning Christmas decorating for the park. A new wreath arch has been purchased to go over the Holly Beshires Memorial sign.
Many of you may have noticed a bright orange gleam in the sky on Oct. 13. Oct. 13 was the peek viewing for Mars as the earth moved between Mars and the Sun, allowing for the closest viewing proximity to earth since 2018. This sort of view will not occur again until 2035. If you missed the peek, do not despair because Mars will remain bright for the next few weeks. Ever heard the phrase, “Once in a blue moon?” This year also brings a chance to see an actual blue moon on Halloween night. A blue moon simply means that there is a second full moon within the same month. The last time a full moon was visible in the United States was 1944.
