The new pastor and his wife, Holly, have two children; a son Brian 4; and a daughter Abbygayle, 14 months. The family comes from North Platte, NE. Pastor Carlson played the piano along with Darrell Larson on the concertina at the farewell get-together at English Lutheran Church last Sunday. TWENTY YEARS AGO August 12, 1992 Not a great number of peo- pie attended the school infor- mation meeting held on Thursday, August 6, when administration and board members explained the prog- ress on cooperating with other schools. It has been an unusual summer to say the least ..... last Thursday night was no exception as mother nature dumped 4 to 4-1/2 inches of rain in the area. The down- pour left a lot of ponds of water in many fields. Jim Sykora attended the advanced Forkhorn Camp at Deep Portage Conservation Reserve near Hackensack. While at camp students stud- ied environmental concepts in relationship to the whitetail deer. THIRTY YEARS AGO August 12, 1982 The area is working gradu- ally toward fall temperatures with the early part of the week showing night time temperatures in the fifties and high forties. Small grain har- vest is moving right along, although there is much wait- ing each day until the humid- ity drops and fields are dry enough to swath or combine. Country Roads earned first place in Womens' Softball League. Team members are Cindy Davis, Shelley Nelson, Vickie Van Gelderen, Rennae Krentz, Mary Mickelson, Julie Thielges, Berta Bakken, Sara Sykora, Faith Maguire, Janice Doubler, and Thea Mathiason.

I was wrong. Two different Community Services offices and even the child abuse organizations, both state and federal, say that there is nothing that can be done in Minnesota ifone county should choose to abuse their God-like powers in child custody decisions. After all, absolute power corrupts absolutely. This can happen to almost any one at any time and if you wait until it happens to you it will be to late. Please help me to change the law. www.saveourchildrsnm a/ ate Jt WALNUT GROVE SENIOR NUTRITION SERVICES Aug. 20-24, 2012 Senior Dining serving at Country View Senior Living Community at 11:30 a.m., Monday thru Friday.

They have met each year since 1971. Lucille Swenson Peterson, a daughter of the late Neal and Lillian Swenson, hosted the gathering at the Civic and Senior Center in Storden, Minnesota. The delicious potluck meal was made extra special with Norwegian Rommegrot made by Lucy Swenson (Lyle) and served to the 56 guests. Letters from Home, a 500- page book written by Lucille's husband, Kenneth, was made available to the guests after a video introduc- ing the book was shown. The book, written in the vein of an historical novel, begins with the lives of Nels and Fifth generation Anna Marie Engebretson and Syver and Ingeborg Swenson who were some of the first homesteaders in Westbrook and Highwater Townships and follows the lives of the children of Ole and Inga Caroline until 1930. It con- tains 51 very interesting let- ters written between 1923 and 1927. The book is dedicated to the great grandchildren of Ole Swenson and Inga Caroline Engebretson Swenson, children of the four immigrants. The great- grandchildren present at this reunion were Jon Swenson, Kim Swenson Zukula, Laurie Swenson Thorstad, Kathryn Peterson Wehofer, Thomas Peterson, Mark Peterson, Karin Peterson Wright, Cory Swenson, Scott Swenson, Susan Swenson Quade, Michael Swenson and Stephanie Swenson Wilde. Fourteen of Ole and Inga Caroline's great-great-grand- children were also in attend- ance. The youngest guests were Carly, Morgan, and Katie Quade, the great grandchil- dren of Robert and Sonja Swenson. They are the great- great-great-grandchildren of Ole and Inga Caroline Swenson. Following the reunion, Cory Swenson hosted a tour of the farm homesteaded by Nels Engebretson in 1869. They visited the area where the dugout used from 1869 until 1875 was located and also where the log house built in 1875 was located. They toured the home of Bob and Sonja Swenson that Nels built in 1889.
