SENTINEL TRIBUNE Wednesday, June 16, 2010 Page 7 MIRROR OF BYGONE DAYS TEN YEARS AGO June 14, 2000 The Walnut Grove Ministries invites the public to their annual "Summer in the Park" services. The over- all theme for this year will be "Bread for the Journey". These six services meet on Thursday evenings at 7 p.m. in the city park. Pastor Loren Espeland of Redwood Falls, served Johnsonville Trinity Lutheran Church as interim pastor in 1986. November 1987 he was called and installed as the pastor. Pastor Espeland was the guest of honor on Sunday, June 4, as a catered dinner following services. TWENTY YEARS AGO June 13, 1990 After a final study of the wording and changes of the cooperative agreement between Walnut Grove and Westbrook schools, the Walnut Grove board Monday night voted to approve the document and instructed the chairman and secretary to sign the agreement. Saturday afternoon Mr. and Mrs. Leslie Nelsen were among the guests at the Bob Nelsen home to help Bob observe his 50th birthday. THIRTY YEARS AGO June 13, 1980 To prevent confusion on weather warning sirens, the city council at the regular meeting Monday, acted to discontinue the 10 p.m. cur- few, at least for the summer storm season. A preview will be held on the fall if city resi- dent request it. Typical June weather has prevailed during the past week. Cooler temperatures are receded, but we have experienced unpleasant winds and squalls. Winners in the Rolle Belle tourney last Sunday were George Cooreman, Louis Van De Wynkel, and Rolf Nackerud. Winners in the second tournament were Allen Viaene, Emil Matthys, and Mark Boerboom. e The money the Daisy Girl Scouts raised from cookie sales went back into the community by planting flowers for every- one to enjoy. This is the Troops way of saying "thank you" for supporting them. The Walnut Grove Daisy Girl Scouts are Kayla Freeburg, Kelsey DeSmith, Elizabeth Wiggins, and Isabelle Locke. Lee Steffen donated flowers for one of the flower boxes.

How does the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) determine when to intervene in these situ- ations? A: An uptick in the number of bears seen in urban areas is a like- ly consequence of a healthy, expanding bear population and contin- ued urban sprawl. These sitUafiOns are often high-profile events with the media and the pub- lic, especially when they are outside of the traditional bear range. Bears that wander into urban areas are given every opportunity to escape, provided they do not pose an imme- diate threat to public safety and they have a reasonable chance of finding more suitable habitat. Bears that pose an immediate public safety threat, as deter- mined by local public safety officials, may be killed. Relocating bears out of urban areas is generally impractical. Trapping is especially difficult in urban areas with abundant non-nat- ural food sources, and traps may pose a danger to people in the area. Similarly, chemical immobilization requires specialized equipment, highly controlled drugs and training that most DNR staff does not have. Even when if this expertise was wide- ly available~ drugged bears can pose a serious public safety issue. A partially drugged bear could cause an accident or injury if it leaves the scene before it is fully immobilized.

Director/Nurse Manager Greetings to all from the tenants and staff at Country View Senior Living Community. We were thankful for the birthday cake that Edith Swenson chose to share with all tenants on Monday, her 80th birthday. Activities this week have also included the bus ride downtown Walnut Grove, BINGO, J-I-N-G-O, Bone Builders, PoKeNo, Wii, Ecumenical Church Services, Bible Study, Hand & Foot canasta, "500" and SkipBo. Some of this week's win- ners have included Agnes Seykora, June Boerboom, Buddy Gullickson, Audrey Schroeder and Eileen Elias. We are currently working on a bit of a revision to the activities that we provide by adding in a few extra games and special entertainment. Hopefully, the tenants will enjoy the variety. The new garage is under construction. It will certainly be a nice addition to our facil- ity. The garden is already showing signs of growth. Clair Baker is diligent in his efforts to ensure another great garden crop. That's the news from the country. Enjoy your week!
