MIRROR OF BYGONE DAYS FIFTEEN YEARS AGO April 7, 1999 Seventy two children attended the Easter Egg Hunt held by the Micawber Club in the City Park on Saturday, April 3. It only took ten min- utes for the hunt to be com- pleted. Walnut Grove Girl Scouts visited the Grove Apartments Monday, March 29. They gave each resident an Easter basket and an apple for good health. The fifth grade social stud- ies class, under the instruc- tion of Lairdie Kells, studied the western movement in the United States during the past few months. They studied the Oregon Trail and Sante Fe Trail and other western activ- ities. They researched and wrote about the trails. They built wagons out of cereal boxes and formed a circle of the wagons with fire exam- ples in the circle. THIRTY YEARS AGO April 5, 1984 Redwood County Beef Producers treated customers to a delicious steak supper at the Community Club on Saturday night, March 21. More than 500 people were served from 5-7 pm. Spring is moving like a snail this year. As late as Tuesday, March 27, we had snow and slippery roads in the morning with a misty rainy night. Temperatures finally reached above fifty on Sunday and Monday. Western movie stuntman Joe Dakota, will present a program about movies, stunt- men, weapons of the old west and the men who used them: with a message on firearms safety of benefit to all will be at the Walnut Grove Public School on Tuesday, April 10. FORTY FIVE YEARS AGO April 10, 1969 It has been announced that beginning this Friday, Walnut Grove stores will be open on Friday evenings until 9 pm. The Redwood County Board of Commissioners last week voted to authorize an option to buy the Green estate property of 65 acres to be added to the Plum Creek rec- reational area. If the option is exercised, this would bring the county park size to 200 acres. The west branch of Plum Creek spilled over its banks last Friday and rolled across the Joe Boerboom farm 2 miles north of town. Area residents have been unable to recall any previous time when the river was this high.

R\\;'IN( 11 \\;\tI%It,R()()K ARII: Out for a spring morning stroll After a very hard winter, Monday morning offered near perfect weather for these ladies who were strolling down Main Street in Walnut Grove. While there is still some chance of rain the middle of the week the forecast continues to be much more spring like. COUNTRY VIEW WEEKLY By Kim Rolling Exec. Director/Nurse Manager Winter has not fully given up quite yet, but I think that spring will win sooner than later! This week the tenants have participated in J-I-N-G-O, PoKeNo, SkipBo, BINGO, stretching with Ashlee, Bone Builders, Bible Study with Pastor Gene, Kings Comer, Catholic Mass with Father Mraz, weight checks and on Friday it was "cowboy day" with an ice cream social in  the afternoon. Looking forward to next week, the tenants will have the opportunity to participate in Dominoes, RummyCube, Golf, Ecumenical Church on Thursday morning and on Friday it's "red day" with the Sahlstrom family providing special musical entertainment in the afternoon. In April we will celebrate birthdays with Elaine Knott and Grace Anderson, both on the 30th. Please extend best wishes to those ladies when you see them. That's the news from the country, have a terrific week! DNR encourages homeowners to complete open burning .The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources encour- ages homeowners to com- plete necessary open burning now, as restrictions will take effect shortly after snowmelt OCCURS. "Warm temperatures will continue to erode the snow- pack in the next few weeks," said Larry Himanga, DNR fire prevention coordinator. "This will expose last year's leaves and other yard waste. The safest way to dispose of this vegetation is to recycle or compost it." Homeowners who choose to burn should do so under the safest conditions, when snow is still on the ground. A DNR burning permit is not required when there are at least 3 inches of continuous snow cover. The cover drasti- cally reduces the chance a fire will escape and burn unin- tended areas. Check local city and municipal regulations; many are more stringent. Spring fire restrictions will soon take effect and will severely limit open bum- ing until summer green up occurs. Traditionally, most wildfires occur in April and May. More than 95 percent of these fires are caused by human error. Due to the high fire incidence during this period, the DNR initiates burning restrictions to coin- cide with this annual "fire season." The restrictions are weather dependent, but normally last from four to six weeks until there is sufficient green veg- etative growth. Historically, spring fire restrictions dra- matically decrease the num- ber and size of accidental fires. By burning prior to snow- melt, homeowners can reduce the potential for an escaped fire, which could endanger homes and property. And, if the DNR or a fire depart- ment has to respond to an escaped fire, the homeowner is responsible for the cost. CAff AUDITIONS Laura Ingalls Wilder Pageant ALL AUDITIONS WILL BE HELD AT Walnut Grove Catholic Church April 1 lth--4:00 pm - 9:00 pm April 12th--8:00 am- 1:00 pm Looking for volunteers interested in acting, set crew, concessions, hair, makeup and costumes Children under 16 years of age require a parental permission slip Long winter prompts temporary beaver season extension Due to prolonged ice cover, the beaver trapping season in the northern third of Minnesota will be extended through Thursday, May 15. The season was sched- uled to close statewide on Wednesday, April 30, but a second consecutive winter of persistently frozen lakes and rivers in the north prompted the Department of Natural Resources to temporarily extend the 2013-14 season. Beaver trapping will close as scheduled in the southern two-thirds of the state. Trappers who participate in the season extension will be required to take the follow- ing modifications to prevent incidental otter catch: *Foothold traps must be set in at least 8 inches of water. *Body-gripping traps must be completely submerged. Those with a jaw opening greater than 7 inches must be set with thetrigger wires moved all the way to one side of the trap. The wires must point straight down. *Snares must be set with stops affixed to the cable to ensure that the portion of the snare that makes up the noose loop may not be less than 4 inches in diameter when fully closed. The season will be extend- ed north of state Highway 200, east of state Highways73 and north of the Pine-Carlton county line. A map of the open area (the north mink] muskrat/beaver/otter zone) can be found on page 48 of the 2013 Minnesota Hunting and Trapping Regulations Handbook, which is avail- able online www.mndr.gov/ regulations/hunting.
