If it was your duty to deliver the Des Moines Register, the Ames Tribune, and the South Hamilton Record News during the wet days of 1993, what could you do?   Instead of delaying what folks expected at their door, you could just deliver by canoe!   Sara and Wayne are pictured doing that in this photo.

This shows someone coming out of the Ellsworth Library.
If you don't need to check out a book, can you check out a canoe?

When Sara Spohnheimer was ready to complete her senior year at South Hamilton High School, she had her senior art show in the Ellsworth Library.  She displayed much of her art work there, including this canoe, because she had painted an image on one side.  Because dad's canoe was named Colorado Scorpion, she had painted a scorpion near the front on one side.
