Schools bricks laying new foundations

first_imgBATTLE GROUND — Cheryl Beers loaded part of her past into her car trunk Saturday afternoon and drove it home.Beers was among the gleaners who stopped by the former site of Battle Ground’s old Central School for the final day of the district’s brick giveaway.“My first-grade classroom was right here,” Beers said, nodding toward a nearby corner of the brick-carpeted site. “I was able to get some of those.”Beers, who was known as Cheryl Beeson in her school-girl days, is trying to decide how to use the bricks: “Maybe a walkway or a little wall.”There was a limit of five bricks on the first two giveaway days a month ago, and the focus was on people who had been students in the building or who had worked or taught there.But there was no limits Saturday: A lot of people showed up thinking about patios, not paperweights.“Now people are asking about pickup loads,” Kevin Jolma, director of facilities and operations, said before the start of Saturday’s giveaway.“One fellow is planning on building a fireplace like the one at Edgefield,” a historic McMenamins’ property in Troutdale, Ore., Jolma said.Others were planning projects such as garden walkways.John Timm said he has a shaded back yard.“No grass can grow there,” Timm said, so he’s planning to pave some of it with the old bricks to keep his beagles out of the mud.last_img read more
