He then went to Kohls Weelborg Ford in Redwood Falls for two years, and then he took a job at an independent shop in Marshall for two years. After that he returned to Westbrook to become a partner at Westbrook Ag Power where he worked in the parts department. Four years later Wahl got back into the automotive service working for Klasse Sales and Service. Last week Wahl opened his shop called Wahlys' Wheels Inc., Automotive Repair on First Avenue. He has experience working all the major manufacturers -- Ford, GM, Chrysler, Toyota, Nissan and more. He has experience working on autos, medium duty trucks, motorized RV's, and camper electrical sys- tems. Wahl's shop has two hoists with the larger one capable of lifting vehicles up to 15,000 pounds. He has a new tire machine and computerized balancing system; evacuative recharge system for servicing air condition- ing systems; an up to date diagnostic scan- ning system that can be used on all vehicles through 20 l 1 for both foreign and domestic vehicles.

Oil and filters, antifreeze, car detailing supplies, brake pads, rotors, batteries, belts, spark plugs and more. Wahl said, "we will have same day delivery on most parts." Wahl said, "I have been in and around the automotive business since I was in high school." The business is locally owned and operated. "I have lived here most of my life, and I know the people here, and I look for- ward to having their support. I will provide friendly, fast, reliable, and affordable ser- vice." .Crime ---- From page 1 He enjoys writing mystery novels that include problem solving of a crime or mur- der. "It's about investigation-- it allows me a lot of flexibility in writing -- I can do what I want to do," he said. Hart talked about the two kinds of nov- els -- thriller and mystery. She said "you can write a story about a building being blown up. You can make it a thriller by writ- ing the story before the event takes place, or after the fact." She gets her ideas from news, radio, television, and newspapers. Brookins said his ideas come from some- thing as an overheard phrase. Kent Krueger gets some of his ideas from wrongly convicted people. He noted when you walk into a strange place like the "Loose Moose," where we ate lunch, people tend to look at strangers. That can be a point , in a crime where a stranger was seen just prior to a crime being committed. Brookins said once he creates a character he takes many notes about the character so he can keep the character accurate through- out he story. Part likes to title her story and have a crin in mind. She then builds her charac- ters lround the crime. She then starts detail- ing he story in the first few chapters. She said "I like not knowing exactly what direaion the story will take." Iwueger uses a different approach to his stories, he takes many notes and prepares an outline which allows him to know how the story ends. "I like to fill in between the beginning and end of the story," he said. "You have to be careful when noting the details of your characters, because if you forget, the readers will let you know." All three of the authors talked about how they got started in writing novels. All of them said they had several rejections before being published. Brookins said "self publishing has the same problem as tradi- tional publishing, there are a lot of writers competing for the book market. However for the casual writer self publishing gives an affordable way of getting published." Learning Gun S<00fety Last week newly assigned area Game Warden, Fulda native, Jason Beckmann, talked to Doug Lee's Gun Safety class about gun safety and hunting and Fishing laws.

The most interesting performance of the evening came from Melanie Stringer a first- person Laura Ingalls Wilder interpreter. At the close of the 19th century, Wilder compares her experiences with a woman's opportunities in the days of her Ingalls and Quiner grandmothers. Stringer, who was properly attired as a woman of the late 19th century and in full character of Wilder posed many questions of the day to the audience. In some cases peo- Nancy Koupla a new Wilder book Pioneer Girl. Shirley Knakmuhs and William Anderson listened to Melanie Stringer pie in the audience were confused about a woman asking questions that they knew the answers of the present. But most of the audi- ence answered her period questions, as if they were part of that era. She was very articulate and brought forth many issues of the time including women voting, and owning property. She explained how she held property and operated business to answer the question: did you ever own property? She talked about some of the things she had seen as a young lady, and her experience as a teacher.
