Streets – Drivers & Children! (handwritten)
Soon, it appears, we will have good streets. But does this mean that Turtle Street and West
Shore Drive, and others will again become the “race track” they were before the holes and ruts
were made and developed? I have heard it said, from 4 or 5 families, with small children, mine
included, that they are in danger every time that the fire siren goes off, not to mention other cars
who use the streets. Sure, you say, the firemen have to rush when the fire alarm is sounded, but
do some have to slid (sic) their wheels and fling gravel, and take off in a wreckless manner?
After all, the property of monatary (sic) value can, in some measure, be replaced. Children are
human beings, and even if you have a dozen, they are irreplacable (sic). We, the citizens of
Shorewood, hope that as soon as the streets are fixed, or even before, that some kind of strict
speed laws are made and enforced. We are a village and some of our children are not able, or old
enough to take care of themselves, if they were, what need would they have of us parents? Did
you ever approach a group of children, playing by the side of the street, and in nearly every case,
one or two of the (sic) will run to the other side, just as you near them. Even on some streets
there are paths through the woods that everyone seems to use, and when cars are approaching at
some of the speeds they do, these children cannot be seen, sometimes until it is too late. To my
knowledge, no child has been killed, as yet, darting from these paths, but some have been badly
hurt, mine included. After all we have a police force, and they should be able to do more than
enforce stop sign violators and noisy mufflers. So, if you love children, and most people do,
TAKE IT EASY!!!

Vol. 3 No. 3 (illegible)
In response to last week’s Editorial, we heard from both sides of the fence. One of the ideas that
seemed to come out more in the conversation than any other was, “Why aren’t the park facilities
on West Shore Drive put to use?” The answer, “Where will the money come from to equip such
a playground?” Another resident came up with a good and plausible solution. She says, “There
are plenty of people around who have unwanted scrap metal lying around. Why not get the
village board’s permission and have drive (to start) for scrap metal, to be piled in the vacant lot
near the fire station. Then with the help of some of the fathers and the village truck, load it up
and sell it to a junk yard and the money derived from it, start a “playground fund”. Other such
drives could be done, such as a bakery, rummage, or what-have-you. There could be raffles,
dances, bingo and bunco games, also. It would be a lot of work, but our community would have
a playground. Another one said, “Sure that’s fine for West Shorewood”. OKAY, include a foot
bridge over the river at the end of Summer Street. Then all of Shorewood would be united in a
common cause, “Shorewood’s Child Safety Program”. The park property has been here since the
founding of Shorewood Beach, and there has never been as much as a swing erected on the lots.
The upkeep of the grounds could be met by the opening of a refreshment stand. This would
defray the expense of paint, maintenance, and repair of the property, and also keep the small ones
from wandering towards the highways for ice cream, candy, gum or pop. Of course, a park to be
safe at all, on that curve, a fence should be the prime concern, if only at first a snow fence were
erected with money forthcoming, to put up a high chain link fence that would be permanent.

SHOREWOOD’S CHILD SAFETY CRUSADE
This week another “playground” of the village children was “taken” away from them. As most
residents on the west side of the village no doubt saw yesterday, a home was moved to Picnic
Street on the lots that many children used for a baseball (or football) field. Where do they play
now? In the streets? The lots designated as park area has been “off limits” for ball playing for
some time now. Whenever a good game gets underway, someone breaks it up, due to the
possibility of a broken window in the area. If these lots were fenced off to protect the homes
about it and also to protect the children from the speeding motorists, they would be able to make
use of the park area, as intended. The big obstacle in this campaign is co-operation of all the
villagers. We need co-operation to get our park area, and the footbridge in operating order. Call
or write to one or more of the village trustees or even the mayor, or even go to see them, they
don’t bit, yet! Write or call us at 725-2973 and express your views in this paper. Our address is
215 Turtle Street.

thank all the people who have purchased the paper over this period. We have had fun doing and
it has also given the boys some of their spending money, the reason the paper (sic) in the first
place. Also on the thank you list and without them we would not have a paper, the Grace
Baptist Church. We have also three of our original advertisers with us. (Sic) the fellow who was
the first to say yes, Hank Fatland and second was Crombie’s Dairy Mart and the last original, the
Cities Service Station. It was Joe Padden then, but it is now Mr. Kelley who keeps up the
station. We want to thank these businesses for their faith in us too. We have had some who
came and wcnt for some reason or another and some who needed only one insertion for their ad,
we thank them too. Now for our anniversary special. In today’s paper (sixteen of them) we have
put in a coupon good for a free pint of ice cream at Crombie’s Dairy Mart. All you have to do is
take the coupon, found on page two, to them and receive your free ice cream. This is our way of
thanking or (sic) readers for their loyality (sic). We hope to continue for another year. Things are
slow for the summer months and there is not much news, but we shall keep trying to do our best.
If you happen to have one of our first copies, take it out and compare it to today’s. It seems
unlikely that looking at that one that anyone would be willing to buy it. But even with the first
edition we did sell nearly 60 papers. Only once did we sell over the 100 mark. That was the
week of November 12-18. Of course, we need you to call in your news. Without you, we are
nothing. Thank you again, one and all and keep your news coming. We have also been fortunate
to receive some extra typing jobs from our readers, which help us too. Thanks to these folks too.

EDITORIAL IN THE FIRST EDITION
IN TIMES LIKE THESE! By Rev. Jay
World news today is filled with reports of
tension and unrest among nations. Each
day brings fresh tidings of fighting and
warfare somewhere on our globe. Some
feel that a third World War is inevitable.
In times like these, America needs to be
strong…..not only in weapons and material
things, but spiritually and morally. We
need to repent our sins and turn back to
God through Jesus Christ. Otherwise we
may someday be ruled by the forces of
Godless COMMUNISM. (Blessed is the
nation whose GOD is the LORD.)
