A few of the city's thousands of street signs get a fresh coat of paint in the Municipal Garage with (left to right) Jack Hurula, Harold Garrett and Nick Schneider doing the work. While the second coat of white is wet, the crew spreads small glass beads on the surface to reflect motorists' headlights at night. Each of the city's street signs is repainted once every four years. The signs, made of California redwood, are manufactured in Ann Arbor by the Michigan Woodcraft Co.

These Dog Days of Spring: When citizens complained that dogs were decorating Ann Arbor parks with leftovers, city staff discussed the problem and decided to try to 'educate' pet owners. But when dogs over-ran the Community High School soccer field, the school called out its team and went on the offensive. Art students prepared international signs, conveying the message without words. Soccer players (from left) Geoff Wilson, Heidi Buchele and Shael Polakow-Suransky display the signs.

The Orange Lantern bar, on the corner of Old Rawsonville Road and US-12, will close today. It was opened in 1933, and at one time was the only bar along the highway between Detroit and Chicago.
