The decision to open the business, located three miles south of the Highways 34 and 71 intersection, was buoyed by customer request, Kruchowski said. "A lot of customers wanted me to stay in the area," he said. The Northland Technical College, Thief River Falls graduate brings eight years' experience to the task.
Nevis mayor Dave McCurnin bid farewell to council members and the electorate this week, but not before issuing a "proclamation." For a five-buck fee, the lame duck will grant a suitable-for-framing pardon or amnesty, depending on the "crime," and issue a certificate and a button, declaring the reprieve. The egregious offenses covered by the edict include violations related to tollbooths, parking meters, stoplights and railroad crossings; jaywalking and failure to yield at the roundabout. McCurnin pointed out he's following a precedent established by U.S.
For years, LuAnne White saw Fred only through windows, the feral feline aloof and independent. The "Lothario of the neighborhood" was known to all on Chippewa Loop. Considering himself to be "God's gift to the human population - and female cats," Fred accepted gifts of food, at a stately distance. But over the span of a decade, a relationship between White and Fred formed.
Hundreds arrived for holiday merriment at the eighth annual Jingle Bells drawing Thursday evening, but there were no shouts of jubilation as the numbers for the winning tickets were drawn. And Friday morning no one had yet stepped up to claim the $10,000 in cash prizes.

The first ticket drawn for the $5,000 prize was (unofficial) 7341452 and the five $1,000 prize (unofficial) numbers were one - 7258437, two - 7118075, three - 7246216, four - 7221313 and five - 7359983.

The Akeley Council, as has become standard in recent years, kept the property tax levy amount in check, the $202,343 levy for 2011 down slightly from this year's. The levy, by fund, includes $35,664 in the general fund, $750 for the cemetery, $21,600 for fire protection by the Eastern Hubbard County Fire District, $4,700 for the fire pumper payment, $81,695 for maintenance, $33,434 for police, $13,000 for special projects, including Highway 34 improvements and the water tower, and $11,500 for the city hall's building payment. In a work session in November, the council agreed to raise polic
Wear a lot. Wash often. Pass on. That's the credo greeting clientele at Wears Like New, the consignment store opening on Highway 34 just east of the Fish Hook River Bridge. Eighteen totes of clothing stored in a pole barn and a newly arrived assistant/consultant were the impetus behind Amanda Fletcher's decision to open the "gently used" consignment store.
