For a growing number of others, though, interest in tapping into our state's abundant buffet of resources is reaching new levels. How to harvest wise- ly? Developed by the University of Minnesota Extension, the newly released "Minnesota Harvester Handbook" has answers. Contributions come from a broad base of experts in this l l8-page guide covering a wide array, including mush- rooms, maple syrup and ber- ries, as well as non-edibles such as wood for crafting. "This guide isn't just for people who own woods. It's for those who have an interest in learning how to connect with nature through harvesting non-timber natu- ral resources and doing so responsibly," said Mike Reichenbach, Extension nat- ural resources educator. Resources are divided by the season of their harvest; its chapters delve into details such as where resources grow and how-to tips on harvesting. Photos through- out the guide help readers correctly identify items. In addition, the handbook offers exhaustive information on resources and their cultural importance, marketing, regu- lations regarding public and private land and more. "Each chapter puts an emphasis on environmental benefits, sustainability and regrowth," said Gary Wyatt, also an Extension natural resources educator. The guide sells for $24.95. To learn more or order, visit http://z.umn.edu/rnd. Orders will be received in seven to ten days or less. It will be a text for later introductory non-timber for- est products classes offered by Extension.

Director/Nurse Manager Warm holiday blessings to all, from the staff and tenants at Country View Senior Living Community. We would like to wish a happy birthday to Mary Danielson on the 25th. This week the tenants have participated in BINGO, SkipBo, PoKeNo, J-I-N-G-O, Bible Study, Stretching with Ashlee, Bone Builders, Nail Painting, Dominoes and Fun Day. We were also lucky enough to have the WWG 6th grade band come to play holi- day music for the tenants on Thursday. On Tuesday, we had a Christmas party with the tenants. It was a wonder- ful time of socializing and the tenants opened their gifts from "Santa." Friday, we had a big screen Christmas movie with popcom in the after- noon. Carolers from the Springdale Climbers 4H club came on Sunday evening. We had to postpone the bus to Marshall this week, but will hopefully get there early next week. The roads got a bit to icy to go on Monday. Next week brings the WWG 5th grade band play- ing music at 1:30 p.m. along with the regular calendar of activities. It will be a busy week of outings for many of the tenants along with many guests coming in to visit. There will be no senior dining on December 25 or January 1 due to the holiday. That's the news from the country. Enjoy your holi- days! MIRROR OF BYGONE DAYS FIFTEEN YEARS AGO December 22, 1999 John Jr. and Dennis Zwach, Walnut Grove, were recently honored by the Farmer Magazine and the Minnesota Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts as Outstanding Conservationists from a 14-county area.

All will receive Walnut Grove dollars. THIRTY YEARS AGO December 26, 1984 News on the Red Rock Rural Water System that is scheduled to service this area was encouraging this past week. Bids were opened and the contracts will be let in the very near future, according to Board member Clair Baker. Construction work will begin as soon as the frost is out of the ground and is expected to be finished by November 15, 1985. Three villages will benefit from the water ser- vice, Delft, Dovray, and Garvin. Santa had a busy weekend, stopping at Walnut Grove, Westbrook, and Dovray, arriving in Westbrook and Dovray by fire truck due to the lack of snow. He didn't reveal how he arrived in Walnut Grove. Santa handed out bags of candy to all youngsters. FORTY FIVE YEARS AGO December 25, 1969 The Holly United Methodist Church will hold its last services on Sunday, December 28, 1969. The congregation voted December 14 to disband the church after sixty-two years. The mem- bers will transfer to various other churches. Present membership is 36.
