SENTINEL TRIBUNE 00rc,a focus Wednesday, February 11, 2004F i I ,i :IEPAIRABLE MIRROR OF BYGONE DAYS TEN YEARS AGO February 9, 1994 At a ceremony February 4, local fox hunters distributed funds they had accumulated for nearly 20 years. Donations were presented to the Fire Department, Walnut Grove Ambulance Squad, and the Community Club Flag Replacement Fund. It was a week of ups and downs. Temperatures for the week went from a low of minus 17 degrees, to two days of temperatures in the high teens above zero. Add winds to the cold tempera- tures, and it was really tough to be out of doors. TWENTY YEARS AGO February 9, 1984 A fierce storm blew into the area over the weekend. Many people were stranded in local restaurants, at friends homes, or unfortu- nately, in their vehicles. There were no fatalities in our immediate area, but there were some injuries from the cold. Chris Lanoue was crowned Lyon county Pork Queen in Marshall Monday night. Chris is a senior in the Milroy High School. Five area women, Thea Mathiason, Vicki Van Gelderan, Pat Wahl, Shelley Nelson, and Tina Anderson, spent January 28 and 29 north of Brainerd assisting blind skiers with the sport on a one-to-one basis at the Annual "Ski for Light". THIRTY YEARS AGO February 7, 1974 Mrs. Salkers' 3-4 graders demonstrated many activi- ties that can be done with a parachute at half time of the Friday night game. It was part of their physical educa- tion class. Visibility has been good in the area despite the accumu- lation of 6-8 inches of snow in the past week. Dale Boerboom is one of 49 members of the MN National Guard who left Tuesday for training in Norway for two weeks. IKreatlve I0000rner By Pam Steffen I have great news for read- ers!! Friday morning, February 6 1 had an opportu- nity to talk to one of the most popular designers from the television show Trading Spaces. After waiting nerv- ously on hold on WCCO radio, I asked Frank what he thought the big trend for decorating in 2004 would be. His answer: "The hottest trend in decorating for 2004 - there is no trend!" He went on to explain that people are being creative and searching for unique and one of a kind decorating items. Home owners are adding colors, mixing styles and textures, using things from the attic, garage and unique finds to create a home with personal- ity. Many editors from deco- rating magazines are singing a similar song. Articles have pointed out that mixing styles, adding color and textures and whimsical touches will give your home individual flare. In my columns I have often stressed my philosophy that there are no rules for deco- rating. Decorating is all about being a little creative and making your home a reflection of your :family's personality past and pres- ent. I guess I had a pretty good idea what Frank's answer to my question was going to be, but I'm no expert so it was great to hear it from someone who has been doing interior design for 30 plus years! I hope you're all taking advantage of these cold snowy days to do some proj- ects at home. Here are a few tips to help you with winter projects: Make a list of projects. (here is where that clip board that I recommended last year comes in handy) List the supplies needed for all the projects. There is nothing worse than being motivated suddenly to work on a project and then not have what you need to do it! Prioritize your list. Plan an event in your home as motivation Get a group of friends together and help each other with the projects. Not only will it be more fun, your friends might have some great ideas! Do one project at a time! Spring is just around the corner so get busy!
