GLANCES IN THE PAST TEN YEARS AGO November 6, 2002 Leroy and Diane Scotting of Lake Wilson gave the City Council a proposal for gar- bage pickup in Westbrook. Mayor Harold Schmidt said Westbrook wanted the gar- bage to go to Cottonwood County Landfill. Scotting said if they got the bid, they would use a separate truck to haul Westbrook's garbage and would take it to the Cottonwood County Landfill. Area farmers have had a real struggle trying to harvest the crops. Reports have gen- erally been good, but some problems with ears dropping. Most beans have been har- vested, but there are some areas with beans left to har- vest. A wet snow Tuesday put a halt to the harvest again. TWENTY YEARS AGO November 4, 1992 The Westbrook City Council took action at their regular meeting Monday night to name Orlen Grams to the City Light and Power Commission, effective January 1, 1993. Grams will be replacing Mike Knudson who will be retiring at the end of the year. The past several weeks workers from Tower Systems of Watertown, SD, have been erecting a 450 ft. communi- cation tower. The tower is located 4 miles NE of Dovray.

THIRTY YEARS AGO November 4, 1982 On October 27, 1982, five members of the Westbrook FFA Chapter were honored for their participation in the 1982 Oats Improvement Program.

Members in the program were Advisor Larry Sanford, Paul Vosberg, Bruce Pederson, Wayne Kelm, and Greg Bunting, and Ron Horkey. At their regular meeting Monday night, the City Council okayed a club license for the VFW for next year. Licensing time has always been a sore spot for the VFW, who would like to purchase a club license and still use the open-door policy. A1 Elting of Farmers Agency of Avoca has opened up a new branch office in the former H.G. Boeck building on the north side of the Boeck's main building.

Nothing will prepare you for the dirty little secret Cass discovers in her hus- band's sweater drawer. It is so shocking that our hero- ine has no choice but to flee to the honeymoon capital of the world in a frantic search for the life she thinks she missed out on. It's a wild ride over Niagara Falls in a barrel of laughs as Cass embarks on a journey of self-discovery that has her crossing paths with a blithe- ly suicidal alcoholic, a lonely tour-boat captain, a pair of bickering private detectives and a strange caper involving a gargantu- an jar of peanut butter, all of which pushes her peril- ously close to the water's edge. Tickets are available at the door. There is a charge for tickets, with a discount for students with a valid student ID.

Burning permits will once again be available as determined by local condi- tions. Residents should be aware that conditions can change daily and some counties may still limit burning as conditions war- rant. Until snow covers the ground, fine fuels (such as grasses) can be wet one day and bum the next. The DNR advises resi- dents and homeowners to use caution if they conduct open burning. Although much of Minnesota received precipitation sufficient to lower the chances of fires starting and spreading, soil moisture is still well below normal. Should a fire start, there is still a chance peat soils could ignite. Any piled material should be located well away from peat soils. Fall weekends bring many people outdoors to recreate, including hunters, campers, and hikers, accord- ing to the DNR. Everyone is urged to use extreme caution with camp- fires, keeping them to no larger than three feet high by three feet wide. Do not leave fires unattended, keep water available, and make sure fires are completely out before leaving. People are responsible for costs to extinguish a fire if it gets away. Fire conditions change quickly. More information, maps, and fire conditions are on the DNR website at ry/fire/firerating_restric- tions.html.
