SENTINEL TRIBUNE Wednesday, August 21, 2013 Page 7 1,, COUNTRY VIEW WEEKLY By Kim Rolling Exec. Director/Nurse Manager What a beautiful week! We are certainly getting spoiled with the great weather! This week the tenants have participated in Hand & Foot Canasta, blood pressure checks, PoKeNo, J-I-N-G-O, BINGO, SkipBo, Bone Builders, Stretching with Ashlee, Kings Corners, Sequence, Yahtzee, Bible Study and on Friday it was "pajama day" with root beer floats in the afternoon. On the week- end there will be BINGO and a movie. Next week brings the 500 card tournament on Monday, The Kelley Boys on Tuesday, the bus to Marshall on Wednesday and "green day" and the Sahlstroms on Friday. The regular calendar of events will also take place each morning. We excitedly watched this week as Craig Carter and his crew installed a walking path on the east and south sides of the building. The concrete is now about done setting so that we can begin to use it. This has been some- thing that the tenants have been looking for- ward to very much. It was with the generous donation from the Walnut Grove Lions that we are now finally going to be able to enjoy walking outdoors on a nice, smooth path! We are so grateful that we have such strong community support! That's the news from the country. Have a terrific week! MIRROR OF BYGONE DAYS FIFTEEN YEARS AGO August 19, 1998 An open house was held at the Walnut Grove Post Office on Saturday. The purpose was to promote the commemorative Breast Cancer stamps. Post Master Pat Hansen had coffee, juice and cookies she served to the public. The 32-cent stamps sold for 40 cents. The 8 cents was given to cancer research. AI and Marilyn Farber are carrying on the Farber fam- ily tradition at their resi- dence on the Farber farm two miles west of Walnut Grove on Old #7. The fam- ily has owned the farm con- tinuously for 100 ears. The MN State Fair and MN Farm Bureau are recogniz- ing the Farber farm as one of the Century Farms. THIRTY YEARS AGO August 18, 1983 Friday night was the grand opening of Freddy's ( the former Mr. D's) Bowling Alley, bar and dining room in Revere. Freddy, better known as Steven Kay, is the new owner. Early Monday morning it looked as though we would get some much-needed rain. Skies were black and there was a good amount of thun- der and lightning, but all we received in town were a few drops of rain on the win- dow. By late morning, the sun was shining and the temperatures were climb- ing, with the humidity very high. It was difficult to see the horses and even some of the riders as they plunged into the water last Sunday after- noon at the Suicide Race held in Highwater Township, north of Storden. The event drew about 2,000 spectators, was won by Guy Marts of Colome, SD. The winning time for the $2000 first-place prize was 2 min- utes and 17 seconds for the mile course. FORTY FIVE YEARS AGO August 22, 1968 Several county officials and Walnut Grove residents plan to go to St. Paul next Wednesday to discuss the proposed Plum Creek Recreation area with the state conservation depart- ment. Mrs. Berniece Thorsness of Mpls., has received word from her son, Leo Thorsness, who is a prisoner of war in Viet Nam. The letter, dated July 18, states that he is well. This is the second let- ter received since he was taken prisoner more than a year ago. Bert Dibley, Scoutmaster of Troop 21, sponsored by the American Legion Post 267 in Walnut Grove, has just returned from partici- pating in a Farm-City Conference at Philmont Scout Training Center, Cimarron, NM, for which he received a scholarship from the National Council, Boy Scouts of America.

Redwood Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and Farm Service Agency (FSA) are inviting the citizens of Redwood County to attend a public meeting to provide input and hear information about the protection and restoration of our natural resources. A stakeholders meet- ing will be held Thursday, August 29, 2013 at 9:30 a.m. in the Redwood Falls Public Library Building (509 S. Lincoln Street) in Redwood Falls. There will be information presented on Environmental Quality Incentive Program (EQIP), Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program (WHIP), Wetland Reserve/Reinvest In Minnesota Program (WRP/ RIM), RIM Bufferstrip Program and Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CRP). The Conservation Team is committed to provide quality assistance to preserve natu- ral resources. This listen- ing session gives everyone the opportunity to inform the SWCD and NRCS on what type of projects and the loca- tion within the county where conservation dollars should be directed. As conservation dollars become fewer, it is important that we target these dollars to the locations where the need is the greatest.
