Dubach looks back to build big future

An 1883 dog trot house which sits adjacent to the Scott Hamilton Warehouse is in need of new windows, steps, a bathroom and heating and air.

“I’m just thrilled that (the house) made the move, and work has begun on the restoration,” Dubach Mayor Margaret Rogers said. “We will have a lot of volunteers, men and women, to help locate period pieces of furniture, do landscaping and install a fence.”

As a result, I usually have a hard time telling people no, especially if they have just wasted precious moments of their — and my — time on a finely crafted spiel designed to make me believe my life would not be complete without the Quick Peeler or numerous other devices.
