It is being built beside her old house where Amber and Ed Stahlbaum live. This is where the burned down house was. I went to Gail’s house, it’s not quite finished yet. Gail says it’s going to be a while. The floor isn’t put in yet. She has a room for her and a spare room. There is a little crawl space – it’s only 2 feet deep. The first half of her house is the living room. She has a nice little bathroom and a kitchen/dining room. There is a small little room for her washing machine and dryer and that’s about it! Here is an interview with Gail:
Reporter: What does it feel like having a new house?
Gail: I really don’t know yet – I won’t know until I get into it. Exciting.
Reporter: When do you think it’s going to be done?
Gail: Hopefully April, I’m supposed to be able to move in April 1st.

Be the first to send us a picture of a sign of spring in Wolverton. Must be taken this spring!  All pictures will go online – the first will be in the print edition! Examples: Robin and/or bulbs coming up.

Wolverton Bigfoot

There was a lot of votes for Wolverton Bigfoot’s name, but there was a tie between Wolverton Wooly and Mr. E (because he’s a mystery). So I decided to break the tie. I’m
proud to announce that our Wolverton Bigfoot’s name is:
Wolverton Wooly!

The Stewarts Have No Water

Can you imagine having no water?

Hunter Plumbing is on the job

It’s probably going to be a while before the Stewarts have any water. There is no water coming into their whole house. Here is an interview with Anna Stewart:
Intrepid Reporter: What have you been drinking?
Anna: Mostly bottled water and some juice and milk that we had in the fridge already.
Intrepid Reporter: How long has your water not been working?
Anna: Since Family day
Intrepid Reporter: How are you keeping clean?
Anna: We’ve been going to our neighbours and having showers there, the Stones, they were kind enough to let us shower.
Intrepid Reporter: What’s the worst thing about not having water?
Anna: Not being able to flush the toilet.
Intrepid Reporter: What’s the best thing about not having water?
Anna: Making us get out of the house and talk to our neighbours.

Joke of the day

Why did the banana go to the doctor?
Because he wasn’t peeling well.

Sammy’s Thoughts

(Straight from the mouth of a 5 year old)

Bulldozers are machines that bulldoze stuff away and also sometimes it can rescue people from a tree because its shovel thing can be way up high in a tree with people in it. And then the people can jump in the big giant shovel. And then he lifts it down. And the people can
run out.

Cool History

Enos Wolverton was the founder of our little village.

He had dreams of founding a big town. He got a town, but not a big one. He built a Mill, it burned down two times. After the second time they were done rebuilding. After that, a lot of people moved out because the Mill was where nearly everyone worked. So that is why Enos Wolverton did not have such a big town. He died after taking sulphuric acid instead of cough medicine by accident. He was 83 when died on November 14, 1893.


We are celebrating special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries. If you have a birthday, anniversary, new job, graduation or anything else coming up soon, or if someone you know does, please contact us (contact information at bottom).
