February 29, 1968: Down go the trees in an orchard where the county school district plans to build a new high school near Windmaster corner. The Cat driven by Dave Princehouse of Dee Flat is pushing trees into huge piles for burning. Glen Adams, contractor, expects to have the trees down by the end of the week. Two blocks are being saved in areas where they can be used for school purposes. School boardmen authorized the removal before spraying becomes necessary. The board pondered, then discarded, the idea of preserving the orchard through harvest season, with FFA boys managing the acreage.
