The event at- tracted up to 70 customers per weekly session, accord- ing to a tally kept by Nichol- Is, who said she was pleased with how well things went and plans to coordinate the event again next year. Nicholls, who has put on arts and craft shows in Houston in the past, used newspaper advertis- ing, beautiful hand-painted signs and word of mouth to attract both sellers and buy- ers to the weekly market, which was held in Consti- tution Park on Friday after- noons. She also used weekly drawings to not only attract customers, but also to keep track of how many custom- ers attended. Baekyard farmers and others sold everything from fresh veggies to baked goods, locally-grown honey, jams, jellies, noodles, sal- sa, herbs, fresh eggs, soups, Mexican food and even some PATTI CARPENTER Dorothy Nelson (left) and Sharron Nicholls (right) volunteered their efforts to make the Lovell Farmer's Market a success this suntmer. sewn and crocheted items. Nicholls said the park is the perfect venue since it has a covered area to protect buyers, sellers and their goods from the ele- ments. It also has numer- ous picnic tables that were used as handy displays by vendors. With the help of several generous donors and volun- teers, Nicholls also raised more than $300 that was donated to the American Red Cross in Boone, Iowa. "I have asked that the donation go to disaster re- lief, which helps people af- fected by disasters big and small," said Nicholls, add- ing that she and her hus- band Duane enjoyed put- ting on the market and look forward to doing it again next summer.

Kevin Schilthuis ex- pressed frustration at being unable to obtain financing from local banks for his op- eration. He said local busi- nesses need bank support to expand operations and he felt local bankers unfair- ly excluded him from that fi- nancial support. Reetz, who was instru- mental in economic devel- opment for the communi- ty of Powell, said he found successful local businesses were a great resource for ex- panding goods and services offered in the town. Mayor Montanez con- cluded the meeting with the simple statement, "This is good, we need to do this more often." Reetz agreed, stating that the meeting was a good "jumping off point" for fu- ture discussions, adding that the meeting was pri- marily intended to open di- alogue and he felt it accom- plished that goal. was very cooperative with officers, allegedly providing incriminating statements to the officers.

In a bizarre twist of events, during the inter- view, the suspect grabbed a knife from the kitchen and placed it against his ribcage, threatening to stab himself. Blackburn said officers tried to talk him out of harming himself and to isolate him from any other weapons. Af- ter a brief standoff, the sus- pect drove the knife into his chest, at which time he was immediately tased by the officers.

Blackburn commended Lovell police officer Brandon Jolley and sheriffs deputies Roger Haney and JeffAngell for their quick reaction and for remaining calm under such adverse circumstances. "Their actions certainly prevented a worse outcome all of the families involved in this. Violence of any sort is very difficult to deal with and very hard on all family members." Blackburn warned that the "culture of our communi- ty is changing." He said peo- ple need to be more cautious and aware of their surround- ings and lock their doors.
