Glenville American Legion

In honor of Rodger and Judy Luksik

Thank you friends and family for all your concern, visits, and kind deeds for Floyd during his illness. Mary also appreciated the support and concern of friends for herself too. It was nice to see so many people brave the cold for Floyd’s visitation and funeral service. Thank you to the Northbridge Jammers for jamming at the visitation. Many nice comments were made. Thanks also to Clarence and Barb Heavner, Sharon Wakefield, and Don Osheim for their music at the funeral service. The support and services of Crossroads Hospice, and pastor Spandy in Floyd’s care and services were very much appreciated. He couldn’t have been at home as long as he was without you. To Paula and the staff of Bonnerup Funeral Home, thank you for your support and services and serving the lunch. Everything was very much appreciated and made for a beautiful memory.

President Obama and the House of Representatives are proposing to drastically change the Community Services Block Grant. This action would be detrimental and would severely impair Semcac’s delivery system. Semcac, a private, non-profit agency, serves the Southeast Minnesota counties of Dodge, Fillmore, Freeborn, Houston, Mower Steele and Winona. In this area more than 24,200 people are struggling to get by on incomes of less than about $10,000 for an individual or $22,000 for a family of four. This number includes more than 6,780 children. Our area has seen a 56 percent increase in the number of people battling tough economic circumstances since 2000 and a 22 percent since just 2007. The Community Services Block Grant is a prime example of a federal program that is highly effective and efficient, and it is the only federal program focused on comprehensive services to help struggling families. This grant enables Semcac to deliver quality programs to the area. The revenue has directly supported Head Start, senior services’ programs, homeless prevention and assistance programs, household budgeting and financial literacy education, and programs that offer crisis financial assistance. It also funds the agency’s network of offices in each county. These Contact Centers are a link in rural communities between our programs, partner agencies and people in need. At these local sites, working families, senior citizens and others are provided assistance and the tools to reach or sustain stability. For 45 years, Semcac has had the trust and confidence of our local communities and elected officials by being wise stewards of the resources with which we have been entrusted. In the agency’s most recent fiscal year, only 2.7 percent of expenditures were for administration or fundraising, while 97.3 percent of expenditures were for program services. The loss of federal funding from the Community Services Block Grant would greatly reduce Semcac’s ability to provide economic opportunities for people in need. Data continues to show a growing number of people in our communities who lack economic security. Reduction of this vital funding will only continue to drive these sobering statistics higher.

ROADSHOW STARTS TODAY IN ALBERT LEA! By Jason Delong

STAFF WRITER Roll up your sleeves and get ready to start your spring cleaning early this year. The Treasure Hunters Roadshow opens today in Albert Lea and is looking for anything old. Remember those matchbox cars you played with as a kid? You know, the ones that have been stored away in the attic for the past 30 years. Well it’s time to dig ‘em out, along with any other forgotten treasures. You might be sitting on a small fortune and no even know it. Roadshow representative, Archie Davis, explains what the event is all about. “It’s a chance to sell just about anything that’s old, and get a fair price. We host over 1,000 shows every year throughout the U.S. and Canada. Toys, dolls, trains, pocket watches, old advertising signs, gold jewelry, coins and just about anything can be sold at the Roadshow. This event is popular because it puts money in people’s pockets. At a typical show, we will see hundreds of people during the five day event. We will see a few unusual items, but mostly we will see a lot of old coins, gold jewelry, and a wide variety of antiques and collectibles. Last week at a show in Missouri, a retired dentist walked in with over 5 lbs. of dental gold fillings. “I would say that is pretty unusual,

“IT’S UNBELIEVABLE, I BROUGHT IN SOME OLD COINS THAT HAD BEEN IN A LITTLE CIGAR BOX FOR YEARS AND SOME OLD HERRINGBONE NECKLACES—IN LESS THAN FIFTEEN MINUTES I LEFT WITH A CHECK FOR $700.” wouldn’t you say?” commented Davis. The gentleman received over $31,243 for his gold fillings. He told Davis that over the years he would keep the extracted teeth when the owners didn’t want them. He would throw them in a jar and over the years it added up to over 5 lbs. of gold. Now, not everyone has a jar of gold teeth lying around, but according to Davis, more than you might think have some sort of gold

Davis says, “The Roadshow receives a fair amount of gold each day of the 5 day event.” Broken jewelry, gold coins and dental gold are all valuable items with today’s high gold prices. Archie Davis commented, “Other top categories at the Roadshow would have to be silver dollars and other coins, pocket watches and my personal favorite, old toys.” Davis told me a story about a visitor at a recent Roadshow in Iowa. “This elderly gentleman walked into the show and asked if we were interested in old toys. The fellow must have been in his late seventies or early eighties. He explained that he had kept all of the toys from his childhood and that they were outside in his pickup. I walked outside, and to my surprise his pickup was full of the coolest old toys I had ever seen: big old metals trucks, pedal cars, train sets, cast iron toys, he had it all. We spent the next 3 hours going through his childhood. It was fun to listen to the stories he told about growing up. He said one time he decided to play farmer in the garden and ended up digging

It’s a modern day goldrush as precious metal prices soar due to the unstable economy—it’s a seller’s market”, says Archie Davis, Roadshow Representative. up and ruining a fair number of vegetable plants. His folks were really mad and he said it was the longest summer of his life—working off the damage he had done. Back then, the garden was a staple to every family. His mom would can, jar and pickle the harvest to eat all winter. The vegetable plants were replaced and all ended well. I even think I saw him wipe a tear toward the end of that story. At the end of that day, he ended up walking away with over $7,000 for his old toys. His last comment to me was, ‘Well, I guess it’s time to let ‘em go.’” Whether you have 5 lbs. of gold or a single gold tooth, a pickup full of old toys or a single Barbie doll, you should visit the Roadshow this week. It’s free, it’s fun and it could put some money in your pocket, maybe a lot of money!

ROADSHOW STARTS TODAY IN ALBERT LEA! By Jason Delong

STAFF WRITER Roll up your sleeves and get ready to start your spring cleaning early this year. The Treasure Hunters Roadshow opens today in Albert Lea and is looking for anything old. Remember those matchbox cars you played with as a kid? You know, the ones that have been stored away in the attic for the past 30 years. Well it’s time to dig ‘em out, along with any other forgotten treasures. You might be sitting on a small fortune and no even know it. Roadshow representative, Archie Davis, explains what the event is all about. “It’s a chance to sell just about anything that’s old, and get a fair price. We host over 1,000 shows every year throughout the U.S. and Canada. Toys, dolls, trains, pocket watches, old advertising signs, gold jewelry, coins and just about anything can be sold at the Roadshow. This event is popular because it puts money in people’s pockets. At a typical show, we will see hundreds of people during the five day event. We will see a few unusual items, but mostly we will see a lot of old coins, gold jewelry, and a wide variety of antiques and collectibles. Last week at a show in Missouri, a retired dentist walked in with over 5 lbs. of dental gold fillings. “I would say that is pretty unusual,

“IT’S UNBELIEVABLE, I BROUGHT IN SOME OLD COINS THAT HAD BEEN IN A LITTLE CIGAR BOX FOR YEARS AND SOME OLD HERRINGBONE NECKLACES—IN LESS THAN FIFTEEN MINUTES I LEFT WITH A CHECK FOR $700.” wouldn’t you say?” commented Davis. The gentleman received over $31,243 for his gold fillings. He told Davis that over the years he would keep the extracted teeth when the owners didn’t want them. He would throw them in a jar and over the years it added up to over 5 lbs. of gold. Now, not everyone has a jar of gold teeth lying around, but according to Davis, more than you might think have some sort of gold

Davis says, “The Roadshow receives a fair amount of gold each day of the 5 day event.” Broken jewelry, gold coins and dental gold are all valuable items with today’s high gold prices. Archie Davis commented, “Other top categories at the Roadshow would have to be silver dollars and other coins, pocket watches and my personal favorite, old toys.” Davis told me a story about a visitor at a recent Roadshow in Iowa. “This elderly gentleman walked into the show and asked if we were interested in old toys. The fellow must have been in his late seventies or early eighties. He explained that he had kept all of the toys from his childhood and that they were outside in his pickup. I walked outside, and to my surprise his pickup was full of the coolest old toys I had ever seen: big old metals trucks, pedal cars, train sets, cast iron toys, he had it all. We spent the next 3 hours going through his childhood. It was fun to listen to the stories he told about growing up. He said one time he decided to play farmer in the garden and ended up digging

It’s a modern day goldrush as precious metal prices soar due to the unstable economy—it’s a seller’s market”, says Archie Davis, Roadshow Representative. up and ruining a fair number of vegetable plants. His folks were really mad and he said it was the longest summer of his life—working off the damage he had done. Back then, the garden was a staple to every family. His mom would can, jar and pickle the harvest to eat all winter. The vegetable plants were replaced and all ended well. I even think I saw him wipe a tear toward the end of that story. At the end of that day, he ended up walking away with over $7,000 for his old toys. His last comment to me was, ‘Well, I guess it’s time to let ‘em go.’” Whether you have 5 lbs. of gold or a single gold tooth, a pickup full of old toys or a single Barbie doll, you should visit the Roadshow this week. It’s free, it’s fun and it could put some money in your pocket, maybe a lot of money!

President Obama and the House of Representatives are proposing to drastically change the Community Services Block Grant. This action would be detrimental and would severely impair Semcac’s delivery system. Semcac, a private, non-profit agency, serves the Southeast Minnesota counties of Dodge, Fillmore, Freeborn, Houston, Mower Steele and Winona. In this area more than 24,200 people are struggling to get by on incomes of less than about $10,000 for an individual or $22,000 for a family of four. This number includes more than 6,780 children. Our area has seen a 56 percent increase in the number of people battling tough economic circumstances since 2000 and a 22 percent since just 2007. The Community Services Block Grant is a prime example of a federal program that is highly effective and efficient, and it is the only federal program focused on comprehensive services to help struggling families. This grant enables Semcac to deliver quality programs to the area. The revenue has directly supported Head Start, senior services’ programs, homeless prevention and assistance programs, household budgeting and financial literacy education, and programs that offer crisis financial assistance. It also funds the agency’s network of offices in each county. These Contact Centers are a link in rural communities between our programs, partner agencies and people in need. At these local sites, working families, senior citizens and others are provided assistance and the tools to reach or sustain stability. For 45 years, Semcac has had the trust and confidence of our local communities and elected officials by being wise stewards of the resources with which we have been entrusted. In the agency’s most recent fiscal year, only 2.7 percent of expenditures were for administration or fundraising, while 97.3 percent of expenditures were for program services. The loss of federal funding from the Community Services Block Grant would greatly reduce Semcac’s ability to provide economic opportunities for people in need. Data continues to show a growing number of people in our communities who lack economic security. Reduction of this vital funding will only continue to drive these sobering statistics higher.

In honor of Rodger and Judy Luksik

Thank you friends and family for all your concern, visits, and kind deeds for Floyd during his illness. Mary also appreciated the support and concern of friends for herself too. It was nice to see so many people brave the cold for Floyd’s visitation and funeral service. Thank you to the Northbridge Jammers for jamming at the visitation. Many nice comments were made. Thanks also to Clarence and Barb Heavner, Sharon Wakefield, and Don Osheim for their music at the funeral service. The support and services of Crossroads Hospice, and pastor Spandy in Floyd’s care and services were very much appreciated. He couldn’t have been at home as long as he was without you. To Paula and the staff of Bonnerup Funeral Home, thank you for your support and services and serving the lunch. Everything was very much appreciated and made for a beautiful memory.
