Dunbar grad publishes second book; losing a grad’s story

<em><strong>GEVFD brick projects slated</strong></em>

We are happy to be the first to report that small team of retired gents and ladies of our local Glen Ellen Village Fire Department have banded together to resurrect the old brick works in Robertson Road Circle. Their brick kilns should be fired up and running soon.

They plan to use most of the newly manufactured bricks to re-construct the O’Donnell Lane bridge. The honey yellow color of the original bricks will be reproduced exactly, “The shade is a blend of the pale yellow of wild oats in August and the amber of a favorite pale ale we firefighters sell at the Glen Ellen Village Fair, a homebrew,” offered one of the brick yard workers*.

Once the old bridge is reconstructed, the team hopes to use the remaining bricks to pave Railroad Avenue “from stem to stern,” offered another brick building firefighter. “Henceforth Railroad Avenue will be known as the Yellow Brick Road,” smiled the chief.

One volunteer firefighter suggested that all of the firemen work at making enough bricks to reconstruct every wooden structure in town using bricks. “Then we wouldn’t need firefighters anymore,” moaned one of the team, while another offered, “We could become the earthquake readiness team.”
