Did you guess last week's photo? Nearly 1,000 students, staff, and parents at Garfield Elementary School dipped their hands in paint to make the school's mural of a wildcat.

    Actually it was the first mini mart in Southern California because they sold gas and grocery goods. Giles E. and Evelyn Ratkowski purchased the house on northeast corner of Fremont and Valley Bl., in Aug. 1926 the store was across the street
    the picture was from Fame Rybicki, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ratkowski she is also the little girl seen in the picture. she is still doing well at the age of 94 very interesting person to talk too.
