• Microphones are there to use

• Conservative as Counterculture

• Pay back?


I attended the Cave Creek council meeting on Monday, April 6 and it was joy to have a majority of four individuals as new council members rather than a slate. Linda Bentley covered what happened so I have only a comment: Use that microphone!

They remained popular into the twentieth century, even becoming popular advertising giveaways, but like gloves and hats and other article of civility, they were cast aside during the maelstrom of social change in the late 60’s and early 70s.
