Questions 63-66 refer to the following article
A Long-Lasting Love for BooksFebruary 29 ——-Both in and around Pine Hill. Alfred Carlson, who has been teaching Russian literature at Pine Hill State University for twenty years, is probably best known as the owner of The Treasure Box, the town’s oldest bookstore the store has two unique features: it specializes in rare books and is open for business on Saturdays only. Evidently, walk-in sales make up only a small percentage of Mr. Carlson’s business: the bulk of the store’s revenue is generated by orders placed over the telephone or online by universities, museums, and private collectors.
On Sunday The Treasure Box will be celebrating its sixtieth anniversary. “When my mother. Willisa, opened the bookstore all those years ago on Green Edge Road, two blocks from here, she probably had no idea it would still be serving the public six decades 1ater,’ Mr. Carlson said. The store still displays the original sign over the doorway. The interior retains the living-room atmosphere it always had, with its mismatched tables and chairs. One section of the store is filled with hooks about baseball, an abiding passion of the Carlson family. On Friday nights the store becomes an informal social club. Not surprisingly, members tend to enjoy conversation about rare hooks, literature, and baseball.
Later this month Mr. Carlson will mark another milestone: he will he retiring from his teaching position. His retirement does not mean, however, that The Treasure Box will see extended business hours; it will continue to be open once a week. “I am not retiring from one job just so that ¡ can spend more time on another.” Mr. Carlson said. “Rather, the fact that I no longer will have to prepare for classes or grade students’ papers means that L will be able to dedicate more time to my children and grandchildren.”

Dear Mr. Molawa

Due to circumstances beyond his control, my colleague, Thabo Kekana, is unable to give his presentation. I have now been asked to take over from hi. Looking at the most recent draft of the conference schedule, however, I noticed that the time slot assigned to Mr. Kekana conflicts with mine. Kindly assist me in resolving this dilemma. Thank You.

Comments: At the recent ACIC symposium I gave a presentation on the intricacies of buying automated machinery. Not only was my lecture well attended, during the subsequent question-and-answer session I was compelled to cover material that I had deliberately omitted from the presentation, fearing it would be too complicated. Clearly the audience was far more competent than I had anticipated. Additionally, in my capacity as a recruiter, I interviewed a dozen candidates for a critical position at my company. This initial experience with the ACIC symposium was utterly gratifying and I’m looking forward to the next edition

Questions 96-100 refer to the following article, newspaper editorial, and e-mail

CORDOVA (May 6) – Cordova city officials have begun preliminary discussions about what to do with Lowell Street Bridge, a historic city landmark that is in dire need of an upgrade. While costly restoration options are being considered, several factor make demolition a more likely outcome.

“It’s a tough decision and one we don’t intend to make hastily,” said city planner Colin Barnwell. “So far, it seems that replacing the bridge makes the most financial sense.”

Price isn’t the only consideration, however. According to structural engineer Steve Pachenco, traffic flow is another important factor. “Highway 49 will soon be broadened from two lanes to four. Then, Lowell Steet Bridge will no longer be able to accommodate the increase in vehicles,” he said. “The way I see it, a wider, more modern bridge is inevitable.”

For residents who want to share their opinions and ideas, the city council will be holding a public input session at Helman Square next Thursday at 11:00am.

Letters to the Editor

May 7 – I’m writing in response to yesterday’s article about Lowell Street Brdge. This bridge is an invaluable part of Cordova’s cultural indentity and it is in the city’s best interest to keep it intact. Considering the tremendous amount of income the cultural-heritage-tourism industry brings to the city annually, I would argue that the short-term costs of restoring this historic landmark would be economically worthwhile

Subject: Lowell Street Bridge Update

Dear CPS Members,

Congratulations! Thank to our strong community presence at the city council event, and after countless phone calls to city council members, it looks like Lowell Street Bridge will not be demolished after all! The Cordova Times published an article today stating that the city is now planning to relocate the bridge to the Eastside cultural district, where it will be used for foot traffic rather than motor vehicles.

This decision is surely due in part to the fact that each of you voiced your opinions last Thursday

Thanks again,

Leo Contreras, Cordova Preservation Society Community Organizer
