Staunton High School will open as
planned despite a fire that destroyed
the school cafeteria Sunday, August
7. According to Staunton School Superintendent Vic Buehler, the major
problem will be how to feed the students until a new cafeteria, now under
construction, is completed by early
December or as early as November.
In addition to the cafeteria being destroyed, one other classroom in the
building that housed the cafeteria was
damaged by water and smoke in the
blaze that was discovered at about 5
a.m. Sunday.
The Staunton Fire Department responded, along with the departments
from 12 surrounding communities, to
fight the blaze. Preliminary investigations by the state fire marshal’s office
have found that an electrical malfunction, possibly in a fluorescent fixture,
was responsible for starting the fire.

A committee of about 20 local veterans is making preliminary plans in
hopes of constructing a new memorial
which would honor Macoupin County
veterans who have participated in any
war. The proposed memorial would
be built on the southwest corner of the
Macoupin County Courthouse lawn.
Plans drawn up for the site include the
monument itself, along with a patio
and Historical Memorial Walk. The
monument, to be constructed of black
and white granite, will be composed
of three parts, with a total measurement of 35 feet wide by 7 feet high.
The center stone will contain the insignias of the Army, Navy, Marine
Corps and Air Force, and on the top
an eagle will be perched.
“Even though there are other memorials in different areas surrounding
Carlinville, I think that we’ve seen
enough interest to start a county memorial,” said Marty Rogers, a World
War II Marine veteran. “For instance,
there is a memorial for the soldiers
participating in the American Revolution on the other side of the Courthouse, but I think it is important to
remember soldiers in Vietnam, Korea
and other wars, too.”
Harold and Grace Huyear of Carlinville recently purchased a new
1995 Olds 98. The car is the 50th new
Oldsmobile purchased by the couple
from Bates Motor Company in Carlinville. The Huyears purchased their
first new Olds from Webb Bates in
1950 for $2,300. Harold Huyear said
he wished he could buy them for that
same price today. Rick Geninatti,
grandson of Webb Bates and owner
of Bates Motor Company and Oldsmobile, thanked the couple for their
many years of business. As Geninatti
held the door for Grace Huyear, he
told Harold he hoped he could buy 50
more. Huyear replied, “Oh, no!”
