This week's cover - Chalk time

Cecilia and Inez Nixon took advantage of a warm spring day last month to break out the chalk and create several pictures on the sidewalk in front of their home. With recent rains, the palette surely is clean and ready for them to get back into their creative mode. According to the weather forecast at press time, they will be free from April showers for the next week or so. (Jim Slonoff photo)
