O So, finally the election is over and we can get on with all the other things that need to be done. I don't know about you, but in spite of not throwing all of the rascals out, I think we, the voters, put a scare in them, and maybe those who are in Washington will keep in mind for the next two years that they are in Washington to represent US, you and I, and not their own self Interest. I was particularly happy with the outcome of the Senatorial contest. I really didn't have much hope of beating Boschwitz and his well-heeled machine, but Wellstone did a great job and in spite of his Inexperience (or maybe because of it) I think he will do a heck of a job in Washington. It's just too bad we couldn't have replaced the other half of our senatorial representation. If Durenburger had any decency or shame, he should have resigned when he was castigated by his fellow senators. I did vote for Perpich, but I was not too concerned when he lost. Rudy has done an excellent job for the state of Minnesota. Under his guiding hand, Minnesota has become a by word in the field of education for the entire country. In Arizona last winter Minnesota was singled out as a model of what they hoped to accomplish In that state. He has worked long and hard to stop the flow of businesses to other states. The quality of life in Minnesota continues to rate high among the states. I don't know who coined the phrase "Governor Goofy" in referring to Perpich, but whoever he was, he couldn't have been more wrong, or "Goofier". One reason I don't feel so bad about Rudy losing is because I think he lost to a great guy, Arne Carlson. If it had been Grunseth, I would have been worried, but everything that I have ever heard about Carlson since he has been active in state politics has been on the plus side and I think he Is going to do a good job as governor. One thing I am really proud of is the fact that Minnesota was fourth, behind Maine, Montana and North Dakota in the percentage of eligible voters who went to the polls last Tuesday, I believe it was 54%. How would you like tO live in Louisiana where only 14% of the eligible voters took the time to vote. Whatever those people get from their government, they deserve. I think I can stop there on politics, I got it all off my chest, so to speak. --film-- A reminder to Westbrook theatre buffs, The Charger Theatre of Westbrook Walnut Grove will present "You're A Good Man Charlle Brown" at the High School Auditorium in Westbrook at 1:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. this Thursday, Nov. 15.

Moving the use of the property? lights and set and getting used to a new stage, acoustics, etc. isn't an easy job for anyone involved; however, now all of the students will get the chance to attend without having to have a parent drive them in -- plus they are given a reduced rate. When a director decides to produce a musical, he must claim how many performances will be given. The rOyalties are based on that number. Royalties for any musical are extraordinarily high -- approximately $400; however, this year they are even higher. Add to this the cost of set building, renting One way you can become involved is by purchasing a share in the Agricultural Society. An.yone can become part of the society by purchasing a $10 share.

A board of directors consisting on nine members is elected to plan and conduct a county fair.

The price for the student matinee this year was set at $1.50. What is $1.50 worth these days? It might buy three cans of pop, a "budget-night" rental video, a pack of cigarettes, or a gallon of gas. It doesn't buy much, but for $1.50 your child can see more than one hour of live, wholesome, musical entertainment. What's the difference between paying the same amount to see a football playoff game and a musical? One difference is that your child is guaranteed to sit for this event and watch it in its entirely.
