Tyler Tribute - Page 2 Our Town Wednesday, March 27, 2013 Host student through exchange program World Heritage Student Exchange Program is now looking for American fam- ilies to host high school students from Eurasia. All these exceptional students have received scholarships through the U.S. State Department-sponsored Future Leaders Exchange Program (FLEX) and will spend an academic year in the U.S. This historic program seeks to foster democracy and values in- herent in a free market economy. Your support of these students and this program reinforces the United States' commit- ment to education and op- portunity throughout the world. World Heritage is cur- rently seeking host fami- lies for these well-qual- ified, bright, motivated and well-screened stu- dents coming from Russia, Ukraine, Moldova, Arme- nia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. By living with local host families and attending local high schools, FLEX scholarship students acquire an un- derstanding of American values and build on leader- ship skills. From the begin- ning of this program, FLEX scholarship students work together after returning home to share what they have learned while in America and are making a significant difference in their home countries! To become a host fam- ily or find out more about World Heritage and the prestigious FLEX Program, please contact local Area Representative Courtney Wade, at (866)-939-4111, or 1-800-888-9040 (toll free), via email at Court- or visit World Heritage looks for- ward to welcoming you to the ranks of host families nationwide contributing to world peace and under- standing through student exchange programs.

Family Council Supper enjoyed on Thursday Friday morning we did our daily exercises and in the afternoon we were disappointed because our music entertainment didn't show up.

Have a great week from our home to yours! Think spring! Busy and COLD in Tyler Well, it's been a while since my last article in the Tyler Tribute. I took sever- al weeks' vacation in Feb- ruary and have had plenty of work since I returned to the COLD, the snow, the ice, the wind and the COLD. Did I just write "the COLD" twice? I suppose I'm still missing Maul As weird as it sounds to say, Tidy-Up Tyler Days is just around the corner. It still seems way too COLD to be talking about April-- but nevertheless, I'm told that April will arrive soon. As part of Tidy-Up Tyler City Corner By Bruce Williams, city administrator Days, the City will once again pick up bulky items curbside for free. We will be running an ad in the Tyler Tribute announcing the day and reminding residents of what can and cannot be placed curbside. Last year's event resulted in large-scale participa- tion and I'm hoping that residents will once again take advantage of this free cleanup opportunity. The City is currently looking for lifeguards to supp, ement Sprcj00l Arid color for $ZO! For only $20 extra any size ad Will run in full color.

I know it sounds way, way too early and way, way too COLD to be thinking about a summer job. But again, I'm told that despite the current COLD, summer will arrive. There will be a new slide at the pool this year but we will need lifeguards to make it all happen. Please call or stop by the City Office to obtain an employment ap- plication if getting paid to hang out at a swimming pool sounds like a plan to you. While spring is starting out COLD, it will be a busy season for Tyler this year. New weather warning si- rens will be installed, com- prehensive upgrades will be performed at the City's electrical substation and it appears at this point that the potential new Family Dollar Store on US Hwy. 14 will be breaking ground (assuming the COLD re- treats and ground can be broken). So, let's get going and prepare for "spring." While I understand it's arrived, I personally haven't seen it in town yet. COLD be gone!
