Were growing our tree to commemorate our grand opening, she said. Were going to hang it in the childrens section. Local families came to the library in droves Saturday to celebrate the opening of a long-awaited expansion featuring a new childrens wing and community room. Library staff and volunteers served hot dogs, cotton candy, ice cream and baked goods as the community marveled at the expanded library. Its so wonderful, Ms. Joyce said. Im seeing a lot of familiar faces and a lot of new faces too. Clara Rome of Exeter enjoyed the new childrens wing with her 2-year-old great-granddaughter, Gia Rose Martineau, who spent her afternoon working on wooden puzzles. She loves it, Ms. Rome said. Theres a lot to do. Ms. Rome had come to the library in the past but said she was very impressed with the expanded facilities. Im overwhelmed; its very beautiful, she said. I will take (Gia) back here. Melissa Werner, a former director of the Pittston Memorial Library, recalled when talk of the expansion and the Cosgrove Project started. It started with the (Joe) Cosgrove collection arriving and trying to find a place for it, she said.

The Various Breads, Cakes, Candy, Cookies And Other Open-class Baked Goods Entries Were Sold Off To The First Taker.

3. The various breads, cakes, candy, cookies and other open-class baked goods entries were sold off to the first taker. (Jenni Grubbs/Times) Entering cookies and candy in this year’s Morgan County Fair was something different for Eunice Wahlert. The Brush resident regularly enters her prize-winning flowers at the fair, which she did again this year and scored the judge’s choice prize for her purple phlox. But the now-semi-retired Wahlert also decided to volunteer as a fair superintendent, and she was assigned to help with the Bake Sale, where all the baked goods entries get sold off after judging. Since she was going to be at the fair on Monday for that, she decided she might as well bake something and enter it, too. Little did she know, that choice would pay off in the form of at least one more big prize. Baked Goods judge Marlene Mason chose Wahlert’s chocolate chip cookies as the one of the best among six entries. This was a category that had more entries than most, with between one and three entries being more typical. “I about passed out when she put the (red) ribbon on my chocolate chip cookies,” Wahlert said. But she was quite pleased with the result. “That sense of competition never goes away,” she said. Mason seemed to have a difficult time with making decisions on the other chocolate chip cookies. She pointed out that the size of the cookies was one of the judging criteria. “Since I have to be picky,” she said, she factored size in heavily when choosing between two plates of cookies that she deemed relatively equal in taste, appearance and composition.

She Attends 10 To 20 Sky Sox Games A Season.

… They’re going to help lead us in a little ‘Take Me Out to the Ball Game.’ All right, folks! 1-2-3 …” Suddenly, we’re an a capella group of 8,364. I contribute with some peculiar sound of scratchy soprano. A few fans twist white towels in the air, and when it comes time to count the strikes, many fans hold up one, then two, then three fingers. Baseball is a game of tradition, and fans can pay homage to that any way they choose even by wearing old-fashioned pants and socks. “It’s OK to be a kid sometimes. Even adults can be kids,” said Sky Sox fan Sharon Starkey, 52. ” ‘Take Me Out to the Ball Game’ just makes you want to get up, get into the game and get into the crowd. It makes everything ‘baseball.’ ” Starkey is seated to the left of her 15-year-old son, Christopher. She attends 10 to 20 Sky Sox games a season. She has a thin, long tube connected to her nose. “It’s oxygen,” she said. “I got COPD from chronic bronchitis, so now I have to really watch my breathing, so I carry around oxygen when I go places.” I wonder whether the breathing affects her singing. “Nothing’s gonna make me not sing!” she said. * * * * * So, when was the first seventh-inning stretch? From left, Rob Baumgarten, Sam Baumgarten and Pied Rodriguez enjoy the seventh-inning stretch. (AAron Ontiveroz, The Denver Post) No one seems to know.

In Its Early Days, Palm Beach Was Served By Just One Or Two Banks.

Welcoming culture Many people dont come into a branch anymore, Vasilopoulos said, but for those who do we want there to be a welcoming culture that embraces them because were fortunate to have the clients we have. Florida locations catering more to millennials such as South Beach in Miami-Dade County will see brick-and-mortar institutions shrink, said Alex Sanchez, president and CEO of the Florida Bankers Association . But in other places people want the physical location. We need to serve both communities. Also having a physical location has a billboard effect. They tell people hey, were here, were safe, and were not some theoretical company headquartered in Nebraska. See us, touch us, feel us. Wealth management is the name of the game in Palm Beach, and the banking study predicts that it will become a baseline service for retail banking. Banks without a strong wealth offering will lose share, as customers take increasing responsibility for their lifelong financial well-being Wealth management has become big business throughout Florida, Sanchez said. Its been happening for decades, and its largely because of the type of population we have. Sabadell entered the Palm Beach market in 2011 and bank leaders recognized that specialized services were required. We wanted to provide wealth management and trust services to clients, and that was really the driver, said Vasilopoulos. Weve continued to expand in that arena, not only here but with offices in Miami, North Palm and on the West Coast of Florida. Also, bankers in Palm Beach have learned that its important to become involved in philanthropic efforts, an island trademark. Vasilopoulos, for example, was past chair of the Palm Beach United Way campaign. That was something very near and dear to my heart, and I really enjoyed being part of that. I was also involved with Johns Hopkins Womens Journey I sat as the co-chair of that event. Its a wonderful organization that puts on health symposiums for women. We do a lot of internal seminars with people who are interested in learning more about financial services and issues with children, since theyre being brought up in a wealthy environment. We try to touch on a lot of different topics that are valued by our clients and by people in the community. Few markets are as competitive as Palm Beach when it comes to financial services. Whos Who of banking You drive down Royal Palm Way and its a Whos Who of banking industry wealth management, Sanchez said. In its early days, Palm Beach was served by just one or two banks. Now, there are 11 institutions on the island that offer everything from traditional services to private banking and trust services. The result is that careful planning is required to make a company stand out. Bessemer Trust, which has been at 222 Royal Palm Way since 1988, is undergoing a major renovation this summer a complete face-lift, according to Philip Kalafatis, regional director of the Palm Beach office. We recognized that we needed to do some technological upgrades cabling, enhanced wires and lines, Kalafatis said. We also wanted to modernize bathrooms, kitchens and private offices with fresh paint and wallpaper, with new desks and chairs as needed. Some employees have been rotated into West Palm Beach office space during the project, which began June 1 and is expected to wrap up Sept. 30. Bessemer, a private wealth-management company, wanted to offer its high-end clients a fresher look, Kalafatis said, without being ostentatious. We recognize that we need to have a very fine looking office space. Customers returning for the season will also find faster computers and higher quality phone connections, he added.

Alta Jafari, Friend Of The Owner, Said Latham Has Wanted Make Her Dream Of Opening A Candy Shop A Reality For Quite Some Time.

Downtown San Marcos is about to get a whole lot sweeter. Candy, Sweets and Treats, a new shop opening, complete with a ribbon cutting, will be held on North LBJ Drive at the stores downtown location August 1 at 11 a.m. The store will provide San Martians with a variety of unique confections. Leanne Latham, owner of the store, said visiting candy shops was her favorite thing to do as a child. It was always something I thought I could expand on, Latham said. Latham said she could not think of a better town to start her own business in. I really love San Marcos, Latham said. Anything that I want to do as far as going into business for myself would be here. Andrew Caldwell, San Marcos resident, said most members of the community want to see businesses like Lathams thrive. I personally think the more businesses that pop up down here, the better, Caldwell said. And I think itll end up becoming a popular place because of the candy. Latham said having a shop in close proximity to Texas State was something she always hoped to do. She said much of the merchandise in the store will be catered towards adults. I love the college and the college kids being in San Marcos, Latham said. It keeps the town young and evolving. Alta Jafari, friend of the owner, said Latham has wanted make her dream of opening a candy shop a reality for quite some time. She said Latham decided to open the store in San Marcos after noticing a lack of candy shops around town. I am very excited for her to open up the store, Latham said. She is 100 percent committed to this and has had a blast with it. Latham said bringing the store to life was a big undertaking. I actually had been working on this since February, Latham said. I found my lease in March and I have been renovating since then. Caldwell said the shop will be valuable to members of the San Marcos community who have limited options when it comes to satisfying their sweet tooth. I dont want candy, I need candy, Caldwell said. I am a gummy fan and if I want to see anything in the shop it is gummy sharks. Latham said her inventory will be made up of more than just candy. She plans to sell pies from Texas Pie Company in Kyle, novelty ice creams and bottled soda. The store will also carry old-school lunchboxes and toys such as bouncy balls, silly straws and funny gags, Latham said.
