Wolverton Whimsy – feb 13 – pdf copy of this issue- click to view
On groundhog day all the kids got to stay home from school because buses were cancelled because of a big snowstorm. Daryll did a great job plowing the roads, and told us that Wolverton Wally says that spring is coming soon this year. (For a close-up of Daryll – see the breaking news story from last week)
Bald Eagle Sighting
I was surprised to see a bald eagle from my backyard. It was flying towards the west end of the village. I was surprised because the only place I’ve ever seen a bald eagle before this was at the zoo. A couple days later, while we were at the ice-rink, we saw it again. There used to be lots of bald eagles, one nest per mile along the water, then European settlers cut down the trees and they became endangered. Now bald eagles are protected and there are now many more.
Wolverton used to have it’s own newspaper and it was called: THE BAZOO
Ann Hoard gave us some copies of this newspaper. Thank you Ann! Every two editions we are going to include excerpts from it. Ann Hoard’s mother is the birth announcement below! Wolverton used to have it’s very own store too!
Excerpts from April 1, 1931
Gail S. is having a nice sunny time in Florida while we are cold – lucky!
My parents had a Play in the Snow party. It was fun.
The Aikens have the best toboggan hill in town.
If you are using the ice-rink on the irrigation pond the owner wants to make sure you know you are doing it at your own risk. Signs have been put up to tell you this, there is also a sign saying where not to go. Do not leave any garbage at the pond.

Yes – we are deciding what to call the Wolverton bigfoot! You can help name it too. We are not restricting votes because everyone in the family will want to vote! But please only vote once!
Meet a Family
Meet the Stones: Julie, Jackson and Leela. Soon they will have a new addition to the family. They’ve lived in Wolverton for 2 and a half years. They moved here from Thunder Bay. They have two dogs: Maxwell and Aspen. Julie makes bread (Stone Harvest Breads) and is a vet tech. Jackson works with computers at Google.
Joke of the day
Why did the cookie go to the doctor?
Because he was feeling crummy!

(Straight from the mouth of a 5 year old)
T-rex’s face is so big and dinosaur bones turn into rocks. Even one dinosaur’s neck is so big it’s bigger than a T-rex. And fossils, when they are rocks, sometimes they break. And scientists learn about them. And say shapes of fossils are on them. And the footprints are so big, bigger than your foot.
