Seems things got pretty mixed up last week when the Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast was changed from April 21 to April 28. Unfortunately nobody notified the Sentinel Tribune of the change so we ran the ad for the 21st. Noticing In the paper that the Kiwanis breakfast was scheduled on the 21st, the Dovray Senior Center decided to change an event they had scheduled for the 21st, to the 28th. ---ITlm-- In case you didn't get to the Hospital Auxiliary "Supper and Miscellaneous Sale" at the Community Center last Saturday night, I can tell you that you were about the only one who didn't. There was a full house for the meal and they all stayed around to bid on the many miscellaneous Items from eggs that sold for over $10 per dozen to doilies that brought close to $50 in some cases. I understand the profit for the evening was around $2600.00, and thereby hangs a tale, that Westbrook can be proud of. At the present time, hospitals in larger area towns around us are having trouble keeping their hospitals going. Slayton ended the year with a loss of over $100,000. Mountain Lake's hospital has been told by the city council that they have to operate without a deficit or be closed, and the board says that is impossible. Windom has had its share of problems in recent years also. Which brings us to Westbrook's Schmidt Memorial Hospital, which is small, but takes good care of the area residents. And, it even showed a profit of $40,000 lasryear. In talking with hospital administrator Judy Lichty, she credits a lot of the success at the local hospital to the help they receive from the Hospital Auxiliary. When they need some new piece of expensive equipment such as an Xray machine at the hospital, they don't go to the bank and borrow the money to purchase it, they go to the Hospital Auxiliary and it is donated. When it became necessary to redecorate and update the rooms at the hospital, several local persons and organizations took the responsibility of maintaining certain rooms at the hospital on a yearly basis. All of these efforts show the true spirit of the community. Recently, two couples from Westbrook made a trip to Fargo to try to persuade Dr Rat to return here when he finishes his schooling. He will be making his decision the end of this month. The last weekend in June the Hospital Auxiliary will again be holding the annual Hospital Days. This event is the basic fund raiser so when the time comes, join in the festivities knowing that you are helping to keep a hospital in our small community. --mm--- A reminder to the ladies in the area. The Rolling Hills Golf Club Ladies are holding their annual Women's Stagette on Tuesday, April 30. Social Hour at 5:30 and dinner at 6:30. And, another reminder, the Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast at the elementary school lunchroom Sunday, April 28.

Your short yr. lifespan can impact heavily on the soil resources which can take 70 - 100 years to build back what we can erode away in one year. This is God's world. We have been allowed short term use of it. We are expected to leave it as good or better. Are we doing that when we remove acre on acre of trees without planting back? Are we leaving it better when we remove established conservation practices because they are not as convenient to farm around? Axe we when we convert established field windbreaks to cropland to help pay the taxes and mortgage? Maybe we should not let the dollar and cents override what we know and have seen to benefit the land. Let's put some moral values back into our land use decisions. God knows how we take care of his world. Celebrate Soil and Water Stewardship week by planting a tree rather than removing one. Gary D.
