I am having a hard time getting photographs identified lately. I’m afraid they have been too recent. I dug around and found some a little older that hopefully will get your memory flowing.
This conga line (AA-03-56) appears to have been taken in the 1950s. I know some of these children must look familiar. Call if you recognize any of them. As a matter of fact, we have an 11-by-14 on display at the museum. If you need to see the larger version, just stop by.
The young boy (AA-03-57) is from an older generation, definitely prel940s. If you know anything about this guy, please call.
Our appreciated group (AA-03-55) we think were helpers from the Tye Preston library. Among the group are possibly Betty Richter, Louise Jernigan, Doyle Patton, Sonia Patton, Dan Gilliam
and Stormy Gilliam Trout. Thank you Stormy Gilliam Trout and Helgard Suhr-Hol-lis for calling.
I’m still trying to figure out what 1920s gangsters (AA-03-54) are doing in 1990. If
you have last week’s paper, look again to see if you know someone in that picture.
As always, keep reading, keep remembering and keep calling. Call 629-1900 with identifications or information.
students get a taste Risk of wildfire comes too close for comfort

SPRING BRANCH — Limura Shota thought there was something wrong with his slice of pizza when he sat down to an all-American dinner last Friday.
Turned out, it was the soft drink served with the pizza that was hard for the Japanese visitor to swallow.
“He asked me to try it [pizza], and it tasted regular to me,” Michael Daigle, a percussionist with Spring Branch Middle School, said.
Michael’s parents hosted Limura and three other children from Haniyama Junior High School in Nagoya, Japan. The Daigles are one of 20 families that hosted the orchestra of 56 children. The visit included a concert in San Antonio, a rehearsal with SBMS band and a trip today to Schlitter-baun.
Michael said many of the Japanese children didn’t like the pizza and soda dinner that welcomed them to town.
Kelly and Bob Daigle, Michael’s parents, tried to make things as American as possible for the four kids they

hosted, feeding them bear claws for breakfast and hamburgers and hotdogs for dinner Friday night.
The students speak little English, so most of the communication was done through gestures. When Michael asked Limura if he liked soda, Limura drummed his fingers on his throat, laughing.
Their diets might be different, but their dedication to their music isnt. Michael and Limura play percussion. Michael has been playing a year; limura three years.
“It’s pretty common for Americans to practice five minutes a week,’’ Michael said, adding that he puts in about two hours of work a week.
Limura practices 3 hours a day and puts in full days on the weekends. Michael said he could tell the difference.
“He’s very good,” Michael said, having heard Limura and the orchestra rehearse.
Michael’s mom, Kelly, hopes some of that work ethic rubs off on students in the SBMS band program.
“They just have a real love and dedication for their music,” she said of the Japanese students.
DEAR ABBY: I am the wife of a fireman. I have a personal stake in letting your readers know they can help protect the lives of wildland firefighters as we experience yet another terrible new fire season.
We have already seen those frightening orange flames leaping across our television screens as they are beaten back by firefighters. Brave men and women risk their fives to save communities, while families like ours watch the news and hold our breath.
Twenty-three firefighters lost their lives in wildland fires last year, and more than 6 million acres were reduced to ashes. This year promises to be even more costly.
Millions of Americans live iii what is called “wildland/ urban interface.” These are
areas of wild nature into which homes — and even cities (18,(XX) communities) — have been built. Last year, the residents of Denver were shocked to learn that their metropolis is a wildland/ urban interface as firestorms swept down from the mountains. When houses are threatened or engulfed, firefighters are at risk.
However, homeowners can protect their dwellings and possessions — and the lives of firefighters — before the fires race toward them.
Here’s what to do: Go to your computer and type in
Firewise.org is a free service of the U.S. Forest Service, the Red Cross, the National Fire Protection Association and dozens of other government and private entities. This Web site teaches visitors how to “fire-wise" their homes, imparting precautions homeowners can take to prepare their homes to ride out a wildland fire. You cannot fireproof a home, but you can firewise it, and by doing so, you might save another firefighter’s family unending grief. Sign me ... PRECAUTION IN PLACERVILLE, CAUF.
I hope millions of homeowners will take advantage of your helpful suggestion. This nation has opened its heart to firefighters and their families, especially during the last two years.
The selfless courage of those dedicated men and women who put their safety on the line as they move into burning buildings or burning wildlands is an inspiration. We owe them, among other considerations, a visit to Firewise.org, which puts preventive measures literally at our fingertips.
