Our Noble Grand's New Home Part 2

I'm sure no one finds this interesting but me. I have became very anxious for our Noble Grand to get his house moved and ready to move into. I just know that he will have more time on his hands to help out at the lodge, now that he won't be living so far out of town. Here is the preceding article:

RAISING THE ROOF, then setting it back down on wheels, was the task of workers with L and R Industries of Cabool and Keller House Moving of Willow Springs, who removed the third floor of this house at 417 Broadway about noon Friday. It was braced by steel I-beams, two running the same direction and one running across them and attached to two cranes with steel chains and cable. Once the cranes started lifting the roof, the job took about 15 minutes and attracted about 50 onlookers, some with video cameras. The building is owned by John Cochran and is being moved to Eighth Street, piece by piece, with the second floor being removed next. The property it sits on is owned by West Plains Savings and Loan, and a bank will be built there once the lot is empty. (Quill/K. Martin)
