This week's Take a Guess looks easy — they're pencils, right? Yes, that's true... but what KIND of pencils? They have a special purpose that sets them apart from your regular "No. 2" lead pencil. Want to take a guess? If you think you know the answer, give us a call at 573-756-8927 or email Editor Kevin Jenkins at email@example.com. As far as last week's Take a Guess, the boots have bear tracks on the soles to make people think there are wild animals in the neighborhood. They can also be used in hunting wild game under the radar. A variety of tracks are available. Guessing the correct answer were John Thorne, Jim Dugal and Mary Bullis. Congratulations!
