Chief Beavertail now at second stage of his plotting can be found taking time at Hotel Salon in the cushy (well cushioned) lobby.

But last November when he alone started considering such and its possibilities after learning of Rusty’s knowledge of "Carnival Beau’s" past with an unintended overhearing Chief was fancy to Dam’e’s libations in lieu of Hotel’s trusty warmed cider.

See, it isn’t so much about being sinister or coniving but more just practical to problem solving - clever like.

See, Borough of Jeffersonville is the type of town that when it heard the railroad could come through within a mile or could be routed to a route a within a day’s ride was to a unanimous voting to lobby for the latter.

Their town and its courthouse remained the county seat for such and the town has kept its original character and better so.

Some things in Borough haven’t changed much in quite a while - at least since the regular Federalism Papers discussions and effectations.

I will get to the architecture of the courthouse later.  If you see a building with five people in a frieze at a table and CC * BC underneath you will have just started to see the courthouse.  It is much easier to find in the daytime.

Many families have visited and stayed since railroad was built and so "agreeing" situation superior than if otherwise routed.  

Borough has had an odd way of attracting architects and engineers and I would say how many "multiples" so than carpenters but that there is another oddity of Borough.

You can really see how lively and spry Jeffersonville is as soon as the last spring thaw mud has been declared here and items routine and habitual find their scheduled start date as now calender has yet let allow properly respectful of nature.

Oh, do you know where to find the church?  Or better put:  do you know when to find the church?

See?   It isn’t about being sinister that Chief Beavertail is a plotting but quite practical in clever.   Jeffersonville needs carpenters but as yet cannot get any to move and stay and hopes creations of some new legends with duping of Beau Carville might overwrite the word out to most in carpentry around five states that Jeffersonville is not a borough made for carpenters to call home. 

When the courthouse, the CC * BC did get built the town had to import carpenters and at much higher rates than customary, and not just because of its dual use design. 

If you are looking for the church in daytime look for the only building in center of town that seems to be built out of limestone blocks.   The church nor the court is build of limestone block though both do appear so to be such designed and constructed.

But in November most are tucked in nightly to thoughts of springs arrival when with the heralding of the thaws are over by scientific measuring to current frost depth and with reminders to be ready for the first Thursday after spring declared here in Borough.  The town pops alive suddenly with colors made even more spendid by the habits of locals having worn through the muds their oldest most beaten wares as children don their newer more colorful garments.

Can Chief Beavertail work up a fictional integrated marketing concept to get Beau Carville to unwilling help town attract carpenters and at regular wages?  He thinks he can.

Official spring when it arrives the first Thursday after the thaw declared past and with a heralding "spring is here" brings with it the newest "processions properly passing postured prudently prideful presenting manners & mannerisms maneuvers mainly measured maturingly…" of the newest classes in little women’s manners by Jenna Holley, and yes on occassion with books carried hands free and flat in processions as proceeding at parts from school house to Potter’s Topiary and back to school house.

The school house is much more basic an in german shiplapped clapboards, that is than the church or court.

It hasn’t been since the dual use concept was conceived at Federalist Papers discussions towards town memorializing with some effectation that a carpenter has been seen around for any more than a couple months before journeying on again.  They go west, they go south, they go north and some that went west pass through as well while heading east - but they just don’t stay.

See yet?  Chief Beavertail thinks the courthouse needs some repairs and such building that appears to be limestone is really a wooden building made to look so with five times the standard effort having been needed for a building of such size and importance, maybe even 7 times the effort.  It is the county seat and Judge Moose Becket presides from 10am to 4:30 pm Mondays and Tuesdays and Thursdays and Fridays, and then the dual use features conceived in desire for local effectations of Federalism Papers and American Independence are manuevered so that all other hours of the day and week the same CC * BC presents as the town’s Christ Church.  (the "BC" is for Borough Courthouse).

It is an architectural wonder with inspirations from Washington and Jefferson and said to be a clearer "separation of church and state" than any other courthouse on the continent.

Location, location.   By day four days a week it is the court house with alter table the judge’s bench after a well considered and designed moveable platform placed beneath to adjust to raise sitting proportions proper for such proceedings, and with the church’s nave and religiousity separated with mechanics and french door, albeit large and solid french doors, hinging inspired by Jefferson where such here engineered such that one person can manuever from one side of nave both doors that swing out the religiousity and close out for county/state peer review in jurisprudence.  They do just remove the kneelers from the front row of pews at the rail design with gates more fitting for a court but quite in the spirit of "church" when kneelers present.  Seems they would have removed kneelers from all pews for "court" not "church" attendings but a traveler presented a consideration that many in court benches tend to want to kneel and cry so a dual use separate from just kneeling and praying might to be considered.

So much "local" in properly representing this hamlet of a developed town, this Borough of Jeffersonville.  It may still be the only of a church that is also a court on the continent.  And, maybe atleast the only one so considered that is still sound in its presentation proper in its federalism to a well defined separation of church and state - especially since the judge doesn’t keep chambers in the church, in CC * BC.

Since last November Chief Beavertail has become more concerned that the town is growing large, and too large for a court open so few hours or days.  He is now leading the discussions overtly and covertly to try to find an affordable way especially since the Borough of Jeffersonville has shown an natural repelent to carpenters but not architects nor engineers.

Yes, by November children are settled off to sleep to think to spring days when the spring thaw declared past and that special Thursday can be announced.

Finding framers for projects has yet to be a problem, and so such that only some homes look as if beavers might have built them, but, the finish carpenters and those of sash and trim specialties and skill, well that is just a side of this community. 

Yes, the courthouse does not have stained glass windows, and, yes, the preacher wants stained glass windows.  The town does have a struggling chap skilled at stained glass creations, but hardly a fine carpenter when needed.
