   This past week workers were caught sprucing up the city.

Down at the county courthouse and library entrances  the sidewalks were painted a vibrant cobalt blue. This official color marks the on- and off-ramps for the handicapped.

   Further up the street the federal post office building got a much needed touch-up. A fresh coat of paint refreshed this 53-year-old building.

   Traveling uptown to the stoplight corner on Main Street, the 1909 Lang & Son Mercantile building, one of Baker’s original buildings  now commonly referred to as the old Russell Store, is getting a face-lift. This transformation will be complete at the end of this week.

   Congratulations to owner Louise Varner for her investment into the beautification of Baker while preserving one of our oldest historic landmarks.
