MIRROR OF BYGONE DAYS FIFTEEN YEARS AGO November 1 I, 1998 Old Man Winter reared it's ugly head, dumping varying amounts of snow throughout the tri-state area Tuesday morning. The storm, in addi: tion to closing most area schools, made travel very dif- ficult and impossible in some areas. Interstate 90 was closed from Jackson to Sioux Falls, SD. Trailing the Patriots with 28 seconds left, Luke Schneider completed a pass to Luke Doubler in the end zone, for the go-ahead touch- down. The touchdown put the WWG Chargers in their first State Nineman Playoff. THIRTY YEARS AGO November 10, 1983 Several hunters from the Walnut Grove area combined their talents for deer hunt- ing the 3 days of hunting last weekend and came out of the brush with 9 deer. Hunting were Steve West, Jeff Otto, Kevin Maas, Dave Kirsh, Dave Hoffman, Paul DeSmith, Rob Stadick, Kevin I~akrndas, Ran Baumann, Randy Tietz, Jim DeSmith, and Dan Olson. Walnut Grove Loggeretts recently received the trophy for Runner-up in the District 10 competition. Walnut Grove also won the District Sportsmanship Award, and Paula Douglass was named District 10 Volleyball coach of the Year. Students at Walnut Grove School had the day off last Friday so their parents could attend conferences with instructors. The American Legion Auxiliary was on hand again to serve coffee and bars in the elementary library. FORTY FIVE YEARS AGO November 14, 1968 About two inches of snow fell here Saturday, making roads very slippery in the morning and the State Highway plows made their first run of the season. Some farmers have been able to start harvesting, but others haven't combined any beans or picked any cam Two Loggers, Terry Dibley and David Morris, were named to the Seven Star All- Conference team last Monday at the annual jamboree held at Springfield. Four other Loggers received Honorable Mention: JeffBertschi, Dave Baumann, Richard Espenshade and A1 Leiferman. DNR QUESTION OF THE WEEK Q: What does the DNR do with animals that are taken illegally (poached)? A: For those animals that are taken illegally, the DNR tries to ensure that the animal poached is not wasted. Meat from illegally harvested wild game such as deer is often donated to food shelves and other groups that serve those less fortunate. However, sometimes meat must be thrown away or destroyed. This has been especially true for fish. The DNR has an agreement with the Minnesota Department of Health to dispose of meat, such as pro-packaged fish fil- lets, because it is often hard to tell whether or not the packaging was done proper- ly. In some cases, the animal or bird, or parts of the ani- mal, such as deer antlers, are turned over to schools and other educational institutions for study. - Maj.

Prior to 2007, hunters could donate deer to food shelves but had to pay pro- cessing costs. "The venison donation program has multiple ben- efits," said Leslie Mclnenly, big game program leader for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). "In portions of the state, hunt- ers are encouraged to harvest multiple deer, the program provides hunters an avenue to donate the extra deer they harvest without having to pay processing costs. Demand for food assistance also has been increasing in recent years across Minnesota, and this is a great opportunity to provide locally-sourced meat to fami- lies in need." More details on the veni- son donation program, as well as a list of participating meat processors, are avail- able online at www.umdnr. gov/hunting/deer/donation. Processors who accept deer are paid $70 to process each animal for food shelf distri- bution. Funding for the program comes from surcharges placed on antlerless permits and non-resident hunting licenses. To donate a deer, hunters will need to adhere to the fol- lowing guidelines: *Only whole carcasses with the hide on can be donat- ed because processors will not accept cut and wrapped meat or portions of carcasses. *Information such as per- mit area of harvest and the DNR number will be col- lected for tracking purposes. *Processors can only accept carcasses for donation that are free from signs of illness, free of visible decom- position or contamination and properly identified with a Minnesota DNR registration tag. *Processors will reject deer for the donation program that appear to have been mis- handled in any way. Hunters are strongly advised to contact the pro- cessor prior to donating the deer. A list of processors who accept deer for the program is available online at http:// By Paul Stachour, Bloomington Some places you might hear the complaint: "I'm bored." "There is nothing to do in this town." "This town is an arts wasteland." With the destabilizing effect of radio, TV, and now the Internet, many Minnesota small towns have lost their local activi- ties. While once nearly every town had an "opera house" (where the touring music and theater groups came) and its "dance hall" (where commu- nity dances were held sev- eral nights per week), most of those are now gone. But that's not true every- where. Here and there one can still find such venues, hidden away on the 2nd floor of some office building, or even sitting on a prominent street in the town. In most cases, they are shuttered, dusty remnants of a past era. However, in a few towns, they are still open and still in use. One such town is Lamberton, located on US14 in SW Minnesota about 2 1/2 hours from the Twin Cities. Here we find a community dance-hall, built in 1939, with a nice clean, original, wood dance-floor 40 by 55 feet. There is a stage for a band. In the basement, there is also a brand-new laminate 30 by 60 foot dance-floor. And on the top floor, there is a nice 15 by 25 foot floor for practicing swing or rumba or ballet. This is the home for Anita' s Conservatory of Dance." Anita's Conservatory of Dance now offers ballet, tap, jazz, tum- bling, and Pointe. This year's enrollment is over 200 stu- dents. Like many such dance studios, the main focus of the studio is teaching children to dance. There is no place near for adults to learn any of the partner dances. And so, the majestic old dance hall does not get used to its full potential. Because I travel all across Minnesota as part of the walking clubs that I belong to, I have had the opportunity to discover a number, of such potential dance venue oppor- tunities outside of the Twin Cities. There is a tremen- dous potential for outreach to venues such as this one in Lamberton. So, on Thursday, November 14, at 7:15 p.m I will provided a 1-hour "intro- duction to Partner Dancing" lesson (Foxtrot & Waltz) at that dance studio, located at 110 Second Avenue W. in Lamberton. This will be followed by a variety dance (featuring Foxtrot and Waltz, but including other dances) until 9:30 p.m. BUY, SELL, OR RENT in the Classified ads Sentinel Tribune Ph. 274-6136 or 1-800-410-1859 Hear the (.;all Wolves aren't alone in needing a balanced ecosystem.
