Th e Pug in the Wheelchair
Our family would like to thank the
community of Florence and the
many people who knew Hot-Rod,
who would stop and pet the little guy,
ask questions about his story, even
where to stay and eat. Th ank you for
showing Hot-Rod so much love. You
made his life perfect with Peggy-Sue.
He has gone on but his spirit is still walking Old Town and the Port
of Siuslaw with all his friends (he had many).

HAVE A QUESTION WE SHOULD ASK?
E MAIL : E DITOR @T HE S IUSLAW N EWS . COM
What do you think about putting a woman on the $10 bill?
“I think that’s a wonderful
idea. It’s time — women spend a
lot of money! Maybe to start
with, we should pick Betsy
Ross.”
—J ULIE R OLLIN , 63
WITH GRANDSON J ACK
S WISSHOME
“I think when women use the
new $10 bill they should either
get a bonus or a discount.”
—A LEXIS S CHEER , 17
F LORENCE
“I think there are a lot of great
women who could be chosen. I
think it should be someone who
has done good for all humanity.”
—M ASON M ITCHELL , 72
S EATTLE
“A woman needs to be on the
$10 bill. It’s time for that.
There’s enough men on the
money.”

L INCOLN , C ALIF .
Wynette, Ernest Tubb, Conway
Twitty and several others. The
memorable music of these
country music greats is bound
to set your feet a-tappin’ and
your heart a-soarin’.
Marty Adams will once
again tickle the ivories as both
the musical director and
arranger, and Mike Jacobson
will once again direct the show.
“Who’s Gonna Fill Their
Shoes?” features the vocal tal-
ents of Nancy Pearson, who
many will remember from her
portrayal of Patsy Cline in
“Always, Patsy” from a few
summers ago; Denise Dee,
who many would swear was
Tammy Wynette reincarnated
when she does “Stand By Your
Man”; Jacobson, who wrote
and directed last season’s “If I
Didn’t Care” as well as this
year’s offering; and newcomer
Doug
Bushwar,
whose
guitar artistry and vocal talents
are
deservedly
respec-
ted.
The show also features the
formidable keyboard artistry
and vocal excellence of Marty
Adams, Florence’s favorite
musician.
“Who’s Gonna Fill Their
Shoes?” runs for two week-
ends, kicking off what promis-
es to be one of the Florence
Playhouses most exciting sea-
sons.
Show times are today and
June 27, and July 3 and 4 at 7
p.m., with 2 p.m. Sunday mati-
nees on June 28 and July 5. For
