Ken Slone, who purchased the former Dee Mitchell home on Bedal Street has opened an auto repair, small engine repair, and general repairs at the home. Steve Pulsipher, who has moved into the home owned by Steve Ourada on Main Street, has a "Sonar Stalker" business. He will eliminate bats from your home humanely if you have a need for that servme. The third enterpreneur is Dick Dressen, who is a general contractor and specializes in roof repairs. Ken and his wife, Susan, have one son, Stephen, age 10, and a daughter, Hannah, almost three. Susan's sister, Chrisine Dinolo came with the family from Rhode Island, also. She has a cleaning business in Marshall. The family came to Minnesota in May of this year and have been in Walnut Grove for the past two months. Steve Pulsipher and his wife, Carol, have been in Walnut Grove for several months also, and moved here from Fairmont, MN. Steve keeps busy with his business of bat proofing buildings in the area.
