The staff and patrons of Kyle Community Library wish her well in her new position. Norma became the story- teller at the Kyle Community Library on September 11, 2006. Before coming to the The Kyle Fire Depart- ment came to the library on Splash Day to give children fire safety tips and stayed to cool the kids down with a water hose.

Norma fondly goes the extra mile to help remembers how Bill Mears, people and is famous for her former library director, told mischievous sense of humor. her to plan for 20 children to Even when the line at the attend that first story time, circulation desk is long and Continued from pg. 1C have you guessed the "ungla- brous" plant that some folks prepare like pokeweed? "Dandelions" came in as a good guess. But, I'm talking unglabrous-to-the-max. Manuel, a magnificent painter, called to my atten- tion a young plant in my lawn for which he could only say, "If baby touch it, baby cry." Stinging nettle! And, sure as hell, when I went to gather tidbits about a seem- ingly ubiquitous element of "nature in the yard," I picked a bushel. Two weeks in a row, a plant with edible parts has called itself to my attention. Some prefer stinging nettle to spinach. It's rich in vita- mins and protein. Pick very young leaves (with gloves, long sleeves and pants.) Rinse. Boil. Then do it again. And, again, lust like pokeweed. And, dande- lions. Another nettle recipe calls for sautding in olive oil with some garlic. Still yet, nettle pests. Stinging nettle online sells at $54 for two pounds. Stinging nettle (think "needles") burning can last for hours. Hairs cover the underside of leaves. When brushed, the tip of each hair breaks, forming a sharp needle that injects toxins into the skin. Remedies include baking soda, mud, saliva, and pea. As for me and my house- hold, we use Benadryl spray for household stings and itches. Not only is nettle delicious (to some), it's "dioecious."

Norma's last day of work at the Kyle Community Library will be Thursday, July 22-- wrap-up day for the summer reading program. So come to the big party for the prize drawings, pizza, snow cones, moonwalk, facepainting and train rides, but don't forget to say goodbye to Norma. Goodbye, Norma!
