Check forgers work in area Several area persons have been victimized Tom Merchant Sentinel Tribune WESTBROOK -- Police Chief Alan Wahl reported there has been several reports of check forgery in the area. He said that checks have been stolen, mostly from automobiles. It appears the thieves look for unlocked vehicles with purses or check books lay- ing on the seats. They then grab the checks and move to another town where they try to pass .them at local businesses. He said the thefts have been occurring for about the past five weeks. He is investigating along with the County Sheriffs department He reminded people to lock their cars and not to leave anything of value where thieves can see it. Wahl said about ninety nine percent of the people are good honest folks, but that other small percent- age are not. If you have any infor- mation about the cases please report it to the Westbrook police Department or the Cottonwood County Sheriffs Department. t Buy, Sell, or Rent in the 'Classified l t ads I Sentinel .t Tribune i Ph. 274-6136 I i 1-800-410-1859 I I I PEOPLE WHO READ NEWSPAPERS ARE BETTER BOARD MEMBERS It all staffs  Newspapers III III I i ii Blowing dust Last Monday morning just east of Walnut Grove some drivers had their lights on as they drove through dust created by very high winds, on Highway 14.

In an effort to provide adequate, affordable, senior housing for area residents, the need to expand the exist- ing Peterson Estates (PE) facility was researched.

Since that time, dili- gent effort has produced a beautiful facility addition that is connected directly to the original Peterson Estates apartments and the Westbrook Health Center. One or two bedroom apart- ments are available in the Peterson Estates addition. The new addition also features a new. spacious hair salon, making on-site servic- es for residents available. A chapel is located at the west end of the new building, as well as a large activity room. Residents' family members will enjoy the convenience and comfort of the new 'fam- ily-hotel' room. Available for visiting famib this conven- ient and low cost visitors' room comes complete with TV/VCR and kitchenette.
