In 1996 the Somervell County Heritage Center (now known as The Paluxy Valley Archives and Genealogy Society) building observed its 100th anniversary. As part of the celebration, Glen Rose's seventh grade Language Arts and Texas History class undertook a project in which they interviewed the county's "old timers" about life in the pre-nuclear-power-plant era. Kara Ann Flanary interviews Lillian and Earl Flanary about their lives in Somervell County, including their elopement in Oklahoma. Lillian served as the Rainbow postmaster for 34 years, operating out of an office in her garage, a tour of which is included in the inyerview. They also discuss the changes in technology, from cars and telephones to televisions, as well as the differences in civic and social life.
