Downtown bank plans move, redevelopment BY KIRSTEN FAURIE EDITOR@MORAMINN.COM
Neighborhood National Bank of Mora is deep in plans to move from its location at the corner of Union Street and East Maple Avenue, and build new at the corner of South Union Street and Highway 65/23 where the Mora Auto
Service building currently sits. Neighborhood National Bank President Doyle Jelsing said their current building has become more difficult and expensive to renovate in ways that conform to modern bank design, particularly in areas of handicap accessibility. Jelsing said he hopes the move will not only help accessibility, but
aid traffic flow and improve a highly visible corner of the city. Moving to the new corner will take considerable re-development. Much of the “how” and “when” of the build is still undetermined. The bank has acquired the Mora Auto Service property and negotiated with the Mora Masonic
Lodge to build a shared parking space, but ownership of other nearby parcels and how they will impact the corner’s development are still being negotiated. Dean Randt of the Mora Masonic Lodge said working with Jesling and the bank has been very friendly and open. Randt said that the lodge is looking
forward to redevelopment of the corner and to having the bank as neighbors. It is also unknown what will happen with the bank’s current location downtown and whether another business would choose to move in as the bank moves out. More will be reported as details become available.

Food pantry preserves client dignity
DFL candidate forum in Braham CONTRIBUTED
BY KIRSTEN FAURIE EDITOR@MORAMINN.COM
The Mora Food Pantry is under new leadership as Kelli Maag took the position of director in February. With fresh eyes and fresh ambition, Maag has an appetite for helping the hungry. “I like helping people that need it,” she said. Maag has not volunteered for a food pantry before becoming director, but had volunteered for several years teaching art to inmates at the Kanabec County Jail. “There I learned that any time you can boost someone’s self-esteem, you can help them be a better community member.” This personal boost has
inspired Maag to help preserve dignity for clients that utilize the food shelf. She said she hopes to make the pantry feel as much like a grocery store as possible. The pantry currently acts as an emergency food shelf that provides families in the Kanabec County with enough food for 2-3 days depending on family size. Visitors are not required to show proof of income or identification. Food is distributed as “client’s choice” which means they may select the items they wish to take, rather than being given a standard package of goods. Maag said this helps reduce waste as clients only take what they will use based on NEWS 320-679-2661 email@example.com

Families may use the food shelf once a calendar month. Over time, Maag said she wants to increase this limit to two visits per month, but the food shelf budget does not allow for it. Maag is hop-

ing that will change. DONATING FOOD Does the food pantry prefer donations of money or food? Well, Maag said both have their pros and cons. With monetary donations, Maag said the food pantry can purchase more food per dollar through Second Harvest than a person could buy at the grocery store. However, Second Harvest has a limited selection. With donations of food products, Maag said they receive a larger variety of items or name brand items. Donations of fresh produce is always welcome, particularly in the summer when... SEE PANTRY, PAGE 6

Is your understanding of speed limits limited?
uestion: When the speed limit is changing on a road, does the new speed limit start at the sign, or does it start when you can see the sign? Answer: The speed limit zone area becomes effective at the point you reach the sign. So if the speed limit sign/ zone changes to Ask A a slower speed, slow down before Trooper the sign and not Neil Dickenson after. If the speed limit changes to a higher speed, wait until you get to the increased speed limit sign before increasing your speed. Each year, illegal or unsafe speed is a leading contributing factor in Minnesota fatal crashes. To continue educating the public on the
dangers of speed, law enforcement across Minnesota will conduct extra speed patrols July 6 – 22. On average, speed contributes to: • 82 deaths and 2,249 serious injuries each year (20122016). • 21 percent of all fatal crashes. Speed-related crashes contributed to 106 deaths in the last five years (2013-2017) during Minnesota 100 most deadliest days on the road (Memorial Day Weekend– Labor Day). Speeding can lead to: • Greater potential for loss of vehicle control. • Increased stopping distance. • Decreased response time for crash avoidance. The most common speed limits are: • 10 mph in alleys • 30 mph on streets in urban districts • 55 mph on other roads
• 65 mph on expressways • 65 mph on urban interstate highways • 70 mph on rural interstate highways Troopers actively enforce speed limits throughout Minnesota in an effort to reduce crashes and save lives. Please remember, the posted speed limit is not a suggestion, it is posted to keep motorists safe. Please pay attention at all times while driving and obey all traffic laws. SERGEANT NEIL DICKENSON is Minnesota State Patrol public information officer for the state’s northeast region. A portion of state statutes were used with permission from the Office of the Revisor of Statutes. If you have any questions concerning traffic related laws or issues in Minnesota, send your questions to Sgt. Neil Dickenson – Minnesota State Patrol at 1131 Mesaba Ave, Duluth, MN 55811.

Limit 1, please
rail mix. Water. Bananas. Paper plates. I was picking up groceries for a weekend camping trip. As I headed for the brats, I passed by those fresh, pre-made beef kabobs at the meat counter. As I stared through tempered glass at seafood and marinated meats illuminated under a cold fluorescent light, I thought about where I was in my life. I have a steady, fair paying job and my share of bills including a mortgage and some student loan debt, but overall I’m doing Editor OK. I reflected on when not so Kirsten Faurie many years ago, I was living in splurge-for-Oscar-Mayer-weiner kind of days. Staring into that meat case, I decided I was now living in a kabob kind of day. With my prize wrapped up in butcher’s paper, I headed to the checkout. Ahead of me in line was a group of teenagers getting ready for a Friday night party. They were huddled together, very evenly splitting the costs among them: He gets the pizza; she pays for the chips; you’ll take the drinks. Watching them as I waited my turn, I fondly remembered those days: Friday nights of seven kids crammed on a couch and a movie rented from Steve’s World. In another lane, a shopper had divided her groceries into what she would pay for in cash, and which she would pay for with food assistance. For those having rib-eye days, it can be easy to forget that some are experiencing cold-SpaghettiOs-straight-from-the-can days. Just this week I visited the Mora Food Pantry and was humbled when I witnessed a line of people having pleaselimit-to-one-can-of-soup kind of days. Next time you are waiting in line at the grocery store, I hope you can reflect on where you are in your life. If you find yourself having favorable days, consider sharing what you can with those in less-favorable positions, whether it be with education, money, food or your time. The Mora Food Pantry is currently seeking members for their board to help organize fundraising, education, advocacy and support their mission. Contact Kelli Maag for more information at 320-679-5513.

Avoid disappointment, keep it real BY THE AMERICAN COUNSELING ASSOCIATION
All of us, in our younger days, had dreams and hopes about the things that would bring success and happiness to our lives. But for many of us the dreams and goals that we once had just never came to be. This doesn’t mean we’re unhappy in our lives today, but at some level we may still feel slightly frustrated or disappointed about what we haven’t achieved. While there’s no magic way to make all your dreams come true, you can take action to get closer to your life’s goals and lessen any feelings of frustration. Start by putting the past behind you. Unresolved anger and resentment over things that didn’t work out uses up energy but accomplishes nothing. Instead, you need to begin managing your daily life so that it reflects who you are and
what you value today. Then evaluate your old dreams and goals. There is, for example, no “ideal” romantic relationship or “perfect” mate. But there can be someone who can accept and care about the real you, and who is able to get things right more often than not. Similarly, there’s no perfect job but there are work situations that can challenge you and provide a real sense of accomplishment. Knowing yourself is vital to feeling more fulfilled. Identify your personal strengths and interests, and then put time and energy into nourishing them. Don’t try to be someone you’re not. Whatever you do well, do it frequently and proudly and you’ll find that rewards will follow. To achieve specific goals, it’s vital to take action toward them, rather than simply dreaming about them and waiting for something to happen. Small steps in the right direction make a difference
-- maybe a first phone call, rewriting your resume, or taking a class. Reaching the desired result will happen only if we take that first step. You also want balance in your life. Saying “no” to excessive demands on your time, talents or goodwill will allow you time for the things you really want to do, without the resentment and anger that comes from agreeing to things you don’t want to do. Reaching your life’s goals means you stop letting old beliefs and others’ ideas define who you are and what you have to do. Instead, accept that you, and only you, can take action to reach the dreams and goals that matter to you. “COUNSELING CORNER” is provided by the American Counseling Association.

Great is the telegraph! Staff reaches the foundry 15 minutes ahead of telegram message
125 YEARS AGO (1893) Dr. Cowan spent last Sunday in Mora. School meeting next Saturday. Fred Hofert took a grist to the Cambridge mills Wednesday. Miss Myrtle and Mabel Conger went to Hinckley Tuesday. Rev. Knudson, went to visit his parents at St. Paul on Tuesday. C. W. Plummer is at work with a force of men putting down News from sidewalks. Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Yesteryear of Pine City are guests of Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Matt Anderson Plummer. E. G. Olson, and O. P Hoglund, H l d off Grass G P. Lake, were callers on Monday. The social at the home of Mr. Long’s last Friday evening was well attended. Rev. Knudson entertained a few of his young friends at the residence of Mr. Long’s last Thursday evening. Crops look better in Kanabec county than they do anywhere between Princeton and St. Paul. Mr. Matthews, of Princeton, the gentleman who contemplates erecting a flouring mill here, was in Mora again last week. The Stage route from Grass Lake to Pine city has been discontinued. And instead is a daily stage from Mora to Grass Lake. Several Germans from Chicago were in Mora the past week looking over the country with a view to settling. Mrs. Geo. Jenks returned from St. Paul yesterday, where she has been for several weeks past taking a course of medical treatment. Mrs. I. Serverance, and Miss Sanborn went to Newport, Minn., on Tuesday, where Mrs. Severance will receive medical treatment. Our news columns are neglected this week on account of a large job of county printing that we are working at to get out in season. The late rains have saved the grain and potato crops in this section and we may now look for a good harvest. The hay crop was too far gone to be recuperated. Next Saturday night July 15th, will be the annual school meeting. The question of free text books will be acted upon and other matters of importance. Every parent should be at the meeting. Great is the telegraph! We went to St. Paul Tuesday and before departing we indited a telegram to the type founders informing them of our coming that day. We reached the foundry fifteen minutes ahead of the telegram. The agent here said he did all in his power to get the message through in season but the operator on the end could not be reached. We hope others will take the benefit of our experience and file their messages several hours ahead. 100 YEARS AGO (1918)

Randall, speaker, and L. W. Martin, organizer, all of the Nonpartisan league, in the county jail, unless the State supreme court orders a stay of commitment. This announcement was made by County Attorney Thomas Mohn here today. Randall and Martin’s extension of time from the execution of the court’s sentence, following their conviction on charges of disloyalty, was in court today. Gilbert has until Wednesday.

It is estimated that 2500 people were on the grounds. 1405 adults tickets were sold; 201 childrens tickets and tags were sold for 190 automobiles and 25 carriages. No admission being charged for children under 12 years of age. The gate receipts will go to the Kanabec County Fair Association. The fair association is one of the best organizations in the county, but it is not a money-making proposition and had it not been for the untiring work of Secretary Chas. F. Serline, it would today have been a failure, but it now is known as one of the best Fair Societies in the state. H. L. Freeman, President of the Fair Association had charge of the program at the grandstand and introduced W. W. Hodson of the State Board of Control of St. Paul, who delivered one of the best patriotic addresses ever given in Mora. The ball game between Mora and Brunswick resulted in a defeat of the Brunswick team. The lucky numbers entitling the holder to prizes for automobiles entering the grounds were: 200, 153 and 120. In the horse races, Almond Johnstone’s horse was awarded first prize, Voldi Nelson’s, second and Fred Klapmeier’s third. The motorcycle race had three contestants; Henry Moe, of Comfort, took first; Albert Moline of Stanchfield second; and C. T. Myre, Quamba, 3rd.

50 YEARS AGO (1968) “Barn on Dare Holmes Farm Burns:” The barn on the Dare Holmes farm near Brunswick was destroyed by fire last Saturday night. Both the Braham and Mora fire departments were called. The barn was a mass of flames when the departments reached the scene. Holmes had just completed putting 456 bales of hay into the barn. The bale loader was pulled away from the barn but one tire was burned. The Braham department concentrated on keeping the fire from spreading to the house and the Mora department protected the silo and a new metal building nearby. “Wilkinsons Are New Owners of Freddie’s Drive-In:” Mr. and Mrs. Richard Wilkinson of Minneapolis are the new owners of Freddie’s Drive-In.

Following the death of his wife, he sold the business to his brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. Don Holland, who have continued to operate the drive-in until July 1. They are now
assisting the Wilkinsons and plan to help them until they become better acquainted with the operation of the drive-in. The Hollands had just built a new dining room onto the drive-in.

Mille Lacs Health System seeks patient advisory members BY MARY RAINS MILLE LACS HEALTH SYSTEM
Mille Lacs Health System’s Patient and Family Advisory Council is looking for more patient/ family members to join the new council. The PFAC is part of a broader system of hospitals – not only across Minnesota, but all over the U.S.– who have embraced the idea of giving patients and families a voice when it comes to their healthcare. Minnesota Hospital Association strongly encourages its members to create PFACs, and those that have find the initiative very successful. The PFAC gives valuable input about care, the physical plant, and many other aspects of the clinic and hospital, as viewed through the patient and/or family member’s experience. Hospitals and other health care organizations are embarking on a wide range of quality improvement efforts that enhance the care and services provided, improve outcomes, and lead to real organizational change. A key strategy adopted by hospitals to achieve better care is to form these patient and family advisory councils, in order to engage consumers in identifying what has gone well and what can be improved in the healthcare facilities they frequent. PFACs support a culture of healthcare grounded in the principle of a partnership with patient and family. Kathy Smude, who works as a quality specialist at MLHS and chairs the PFAC, said that though the group is new, they have already suggested changes and ideas that have been implemented. “We really do care what patients and families have to say,” Smude said. “We want to understand what they genuinely care about and what their needs truly are, and the only way to do that is to engage them in some good listening opportunities, which the PFAC provides. These are meetings that result in real progress, and we’ve seen that already.” If you receive your healthcare at Mille Lacs Health System and are interested in joining the MLHS Patient and Family Advisory Council, please call Kathy Smude in the MLHS Quality Department, at 320-532-2653 for more information.

PANTRY: New director focuses on fundraising, client experience FROM PAGE 1
local gardens overflow with tomatoes, cucumbers, beans and other fresh and nutritious fruits and vegetables. The pantry collects “food rescue” from Coborn’s and New Generation Bakery where they collect food that is still good for consumption, but not considered sellable. These items are most often bread or produce which can expire quickly. This July, the Mora Food Pantry is participating in the 2018 Food Shelf Challenge from Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless. At the end of the challenge, Open Your Heart will proportionally match donations made to the Mora Food Pantry. Family Pathways donates the use of the building and utilities to the food pantry. DONATING TIME Rather than donating money or food to support the food pantry, Maag said she also needs people to donate their time. Interested persons may help by volunteering or by serving on the board of directors. Maag’s overall goals for the board and volunteers are to encourage consistency and broaden their fundraising, promotion and
education efforts. An experienced volunteer, Maag was impressed by the food pantry’s current volunteers. “I’ve been volunteering for a decade and these are the best volunteers I’ve ever seen,” she said. Volunteers at the food shelf can help by stocking shelves, completing paperwork, answering client questions, helping clients shop, bagging items or helping to carry out. Maag also said the food pantry is in need of new board members. The board currently meets at 8 a.m. at the Mora Food Pantry every second Tuesday of the month. Maag said this time may change if new board members desire a different schedule. LOCATION AND HOURS The Mora Food Pantry is open every Tuesday and Friday from 9:30 a.m. to Noon and the first Tuesday of the month from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. The food shelf is located at 214 NW Railroad Ave Mora, MN 55051. Donations are also accepted during our open hours or can be mailed to Mora Food Pantry, PO Box 434, Mora, MN 55051. Contact Kelli Maag at morafoodpantry@ gmail.com 320-679-5513 for more information.

Student funding lower than expected Mora school board approves 2018-19 budget, re-authorization of 2014 levy BY SCOTT MCKINNEY NEWS@MORAMINN.COM
The Mora School Board approved the finalized budget for the 2018-19 school year, reflecting lower student funding than had been expected from the State Legislature. Additional funds will be available through re-authorization of a referendum the Legislature approved in 2014. At its Thursday, June 28 meeting the Board considered the finalized school district budget for the upcoming school year. Superintendent Craig Schultz said that the preliminary budget approved in March had been revised, to reflect more current numbers available after the recent state legislative session. “Additional per-pupil funding was anticipated, but did not happen,” Schultz said. “The pension and bonding bills were passed during the session, but do not generate additional funds to the district’s bottom line.” The finalized budget, which must be submitted to the Minnesota Department of Education prior to June 30, called for expenditures of $21,120,063 with expected revenues of $20,939,778. “The bottom line is slightly more negative than approved on the preliminary budget,” said Schultz. The Board voted unanimously to approve and submit the budget.
SCHOOL BOARD SNIPPETS
At its Thursday, June 28 meeting the Mora School Board performed the following actions: The Board re-authorized a previous referendum of $300 per student. The referendum had been authorized by the State Legislature in 2014 and is eligible to be renewed for an additional ﬁve years, to begin with taxes payable in 2019. “There is signiﬁcant state aid available with this levy,” Schultz said. “And there is no additional tax impact, because the levy is already in place.” The Board also approved ﬁling dates for the upcoming School Board election. Affidavits of candidacy will be accepted from Tuesday, July 31 to Tuesday, Aug. 14 at the School District ofﬁce. Three School Board members will be elected on Tuesday, Nov. 6 for terms of four years each. Jake Ellingson, president of the Mustang Booster Club, made a presentation about the club’s activities. “The purpose of the Booster Club is to foster excellence and pride in Mora Mustang athletics,” Ellingson said. He discussed the procedure for funding requests by athletic teams, and outlined the approaches taken when soliciting support from local businesses. Jen Strande, coordinator of the district’s Quality Compensation program, presented the Mora program’s second-year report. Q-Comp, established in 2005 by the State Legislature, allows local districts and teachers’ representatives to design and collectively bargain a compensation plan. Elementary Principal Brenda Spartz presented the 2018-19 Local Literacy Plan, which was unanimously approved. The Board approved renewing continued membership in the Minnesota State High School League for the upcoming school year.
The next school board meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m., Thursday, July 26 at Mora High School.
FirstLight awards renewable scholarships CONTRIBUTED FIRSTLIGHT HEALTH SYSTEM
Four local high school students, pursuing a higher education in the health field were awarded scholarships from FirstLight Health System. The criteria used to evaluate the recipient’s application included their GPA, a letter of recommendation from a school official, and an essay written by the student explaining their education goals as they relate to their future health care occupation of choice. “We are privileged to support our area students as they further their knowledge, proving to be productive members in the medical field,” comments Randy Ulseth, CEO. “Investing in our students’ education will aid in developing the next generation rural medical providers.” Recipients of the most recent scholarships include: • Cal Wright, a graduate from Mora High School, who is planning on attending University of Concordia this fall.

the University of MN Rochester to pursue a degree in nursing. • Jordin Klar, an Ogilvie High School graduate, who is planning to attend the University of MN-Twin Cities in the fall.

Too hot to turn on the air conditioning THE GUY FROM JUST DOWN THE ROAD My neighbor Crandall stops by. “How are you doing?” I ask. “Everything is nearly copacetic. I gave Pop a computer, but he gave it back. He doesn’t want a computer until one can be taught how to catch a walleye. Ma doesn’t mind when Pop forgets Al’s World to zip up his fly. At least that means Al Batt he remembered to wear pants. My i Cl cousin Clancy was supposed to be here in March. He didn’t show up until June. Daylight saving time messes him up. I was going to turn on the air conditioning, but it was too hot to do even that. On a terrible hot day, I remember the words to an old song that goes something like this, ‘It ain’t no sin to take off your skin and dance around in your bones.’ Clancy is like my neighbor Still Bill, he couldn’t get out of his own way. Still Bill isn’t lazy; he just doesn’t want to do everything and then end up with nothing to do when he retires. Q-AND-A “Is there a bird named after Minnesota?” No, but there should be. Something like the Minnesota minnow heron, Minnesota timber hawk or Minnesota casino crow. There are a number of birds that
carry a state as their first names. California (condor, gnatcatcher, gull, quail, scrub-jay, thrasher and towhee), Connecticut warbler, Florida scrub-jay, Kentucky warbler, Louisiana waterthrush, Mississippi kite, Tennessee warbler and Virginia rail. There are also two with Carolina as a first name -- Chickadee and wren. There is a Virginia’s warbler, but it carries the woman’s name that discovered the bird. NATURALLY I’d been out the door at 4 in the morning. I’d awakened without an alarm clock, as I tend to do when I look forward to something. The morning’s fog exceeded the fog in my brain, but there were birds that needed counting. They were counting on me. I did a Breeding Bird Survey in June. I’ve been doing the same route for many years and it was good being back in the counting saddle after missing the BBS last year when I was on the disabled list. I counted birds for three minutes each at 50 regular stops. At one stop, I watched a fox squirrel walk down a farm drive and right up to my car. It gave me a baleful look while sitting up on its rear legs. Apparently satisfied that I was a harmless man who had been fairly warned, the squirrel ambled back up the drive from whence it had come. It was obviously a watch squirrel.

I watched five wild turkeys walk bean rows. I’d done the same thing when I was a young turkey. Several sandhill cranes flew over. They had nested there for some years. I was pleased to see them. The day was filled with newly minted robins. Butterfly weed, a much more vivid orange color than a monarch butterfly, demanded my attention. Orange isn’t an exceedingly common color in nature this time of the year. Daisy flea bane presented more rays per flower head than I could count. Days earlier, I’d stood transfixed as a red-winged blackbird male flew down from a tree and landed on the back of a Canada goose gander. The gander was in the company of his missus and a few goslings. Ganders are particularly aggressive in that case, but this gander put his head down and rushed to the water of a pond as the blackbird rode along as if he were in a saddle, pecking and prodding the gander on his way. The goslings and the missus waddled behind. Once in the water, the gander was freed of his tormentor. I hoped the goslings would one day be able to look again at their father as if he were all-powerful.

Freedom comes with responsibility
ollowing the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, the colonies of the new world, later becoming the United States of America, have enjoyed more than two centuries of free nationhood. The scripture words on the Liberty Bell need to be emphasized today: “Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof” 25:10 KJV). Focus on (Leviticus. Freedom can be lost when the citizens beFaith come careless, unthinking and selfish. We give Marlin Harris away what our forefathers won when we think only of freedom from something and not freedom for something – freedom for participating in democracy. Freedom is endangered when people fail to exercise the responsibility that always goes with it. One who enjoys freedom must never forget that others have
freedom, too. Dr. John H. Knowles, former president of the Rockefeller Foundation, has well said, “The cost of sloth, gluttony, alcoholic overuse, reckless driving, sexual intemperance…is now regarded by many as a national, not an individual responsibility. These abuses are justified on the ground of individual freedom, but what happens then is that one man’s freedom in health abuse is another’s shackle in taxes and insurance premiums.” Freedom is a sacred trust. It has its roots in our freedom before God, our Creator and Redeemer. Christ has freed us from sin, setting us free to serve him. He declares, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:31-32). Let’s pray that God may bless our land and all nations of the world with true freedom and with the wisdom to use it rightly.

Classic Living Things to consider before downsizing your home
The decision to downsize a home is often bittersweet. Many who downsize their homes do so after raising a family or as they get to an age when taking care of a large home and yard is no longer feasible or cost efficient. A home might be filled with memories, but downsizing a home helps save more money, and that financial flexibility often allows men and women to more fully enjoy their retirement. The following are a handful of factors homeowners should consider before downsizing to a smaller home.
get the most for your home, or will you have to settle for less than you prefer? How fast are similar homes in your area selling? When studying the real estate market, it’s also a good idea to study the market for smaller homes. Furniture. When downsizing to a smaller home, many couples realize all their current furniture is unlikely to fit into a smaller home. That means couples will have to sell or donate the items that will not fit. Before deciding to downsize, consider your attachment to certain items that you may or may not be able to take with you to your new home and the emotional toll that selling such items might take if you’re left with no other options.
Real estate market. The real estate market can be a seller’s friend or foe. Many sellers have a sale price in mind when they decide to sell their home, but the real estate market can be fickle, so homeowners should do Proximity to family. Before their research before putting their downsizing, consider if you’re home up for sale. Will the current willing to move further away from market make it easier for you to

Medical care. Many older men and women must also consider the effect that moving may have on their medical care. Downsizing to a home in the country may make it harder to maintain contact with your current physician, and rural areas typically have less medical practitioners than more densely populated towns and cities. In addition, if you have been visiting the same physician for years, you may not want to move and have to start all over again with a physician who is unfamiliar with your medical history. Consider how much maintaining your existing relationship with your physician means to you, and if your next home will provide the kind of access to medical care you’re likely to need.

Crystal Bar and Grill under new ownership BY SCOTT MCKINNEY NEWS@MORAMINN.COM
A well-known landmark restaurant in downtown Mora has new owners, with plans to continue its traditions of delicious food, friendly service and welcoming surroundings. On Monday, July 2, Amy and Karl Gotfredson became owners of the Crystal Bar and Grill, the well-known eatery located at 39 South Union Street. â€œIâ€™ve been in business before, and have always had a yearning to get back into owning my own business,â€? said Karl. â€œAmy has a very keen sense for business and a special knack for dealing with people. So it seemed like a natural fit.â€? â€œAnd I love customer service. Itâ€™s always been my passion,â€? added Amy, who has worked at the Crystal for several years. â€œI like being part of a community: working here, seeing and talking with people. Weâ€™ll give our guests a positive experience.â€? Karl, a lifelong Mora native, and Amy, who grew up in the Grand
R id area, have h b Rapids been active in the community for many years. Both served on the Mora Area Youth Athletic Association board, and participated in other activities when their children were younger. The Gotredfsons take over the Crystal from long-time owners Mike and Deb Hallin. â€œWe approached them. I donâ€™t think they were really saying that it was time to move on,â€? Amy said. â€œOur youngest just graduated, and I really need to be on the go. An empty nest was a scary thought.â€? â€œWe were both looking for something to occupy our time, rather than just sitting at home,â€? said Karl. â€œMike and Deb created something really
i h hi h amazing here, which makes it easier for us to step in. We hate to mess with something thatâ€™s gone so well. Customers will see us taking a very active role.â€? The Hallins owned the Crystal for seven years, acquiring it from Mikeâ€™s brother Jim and his wife Beth who owned it for eight. â€œMike and Deb host numerous benefits and events here,â€? Amy said. â€œFundraisers, class reunions, grooms dinners and family gatherings: theyâ€™ve done many great things for the community. They established a very successful business, and we just want to put our own spin on that.â€? â€œWeâ€™re still searching for history to find the whole story of the Crys-
tal. We havenâ€™t found it all yet,â€? Karl said. â€œIt has an atmosphere like TVâ€™s â€˜Cheersâ€™: where everybody knows your name. If youâ€™re a local person, you hold memories from this place. A lot of downtown Mora has changed, but one thing thatâ€™s always been constant has been the Crystal.â€? The Gotfredsons arenâ€™t planning a lot of sudden changes to the Crystal. â€œIn time our menu will offer steaks, salmon and barbecued ribs Wednesdays through Saturdays. You canâ€™t really get those within 30 miles of here,â€? said Karl. â€œWeâ€™re not going to offer that immediately, but wait until weâ€™re sure we can execute it.â€? â€œOur entire staff is staying on,â€? Amy added. â€œTheyâ€™re excited about the new plans. And thereâ€™ll be some dĂŠcor changes that people will just have to come and see.â€? The Crystal will host a grand re-opening celebration on Saturday, Aug. 11, to coincide with the Mora Area Chamber of Commerceâ€™s second annual Car Show, Activities and Street Dance.

Mora defeats rival Hinckley BY JAYSON PAUTZKE NEWS@MORAMINN.COM

Ogilvie Raceway celebrates fourth with races, ﬁreworks On July 7, 2018, The Ogilvie Raceway celebrated the Fourth of July with races and a Fireworks Spectacular Event. See the full race results on page 13.
As the Eastern Minny season comes to the home stretch the Mora Blue Devils continue to lead the pack remaining undefeated through 10 league games. Mora defeated North Branch on Sunday, July 8 and Hinckley on Monday, July 9 to improve to 12-4 overall, 10-0 in league play. On Sunday, Mora hosted North Branch. Even though the game was in Mora, North Branch was the home team for this match up. Mora struggled early against a good Nighthawk pitcher early and trailed 1-0 going into the sixth inning. Mora would find some timely hitting in the sixth inning with four straight hits with two outs scoring three runs. Troy Jones had an RBI single scoring Erik Raivo to tie the game. Derek Graves immediately gave Mora the lead with a big RBI triple scoring Jones. Dylan Graves followed with a single scoring his brother to make it 3-1. After North Branch cut the deficit to 3-2, Mora answered right back in the seventh inning. Troy Jones picked up his second RBI bringing in Erik Raivo to give the Blue Devils a two-run lead again. Two insurance runs in the ninth for Mora gave them the final 6-2 margin. Troy Jones continued his big day with a two RBI single scoring Raivo and Logan Graves. Derek Graves did the job on the hill for the Devils. Graves went all nine innings striking out 12 while just walking one and allowing two hits. Both runs allowed were unearned. Offensive leaders: • Troy Jones 2 for 5 4RBIs • Erik Raivo 1 for 2 3 runs scored • Dylan Graves 1 for 3 RBI • Logan Graves 1 for 4 • Michael Humphrey 1 for 4 • Derek Graves 1 for 5 triple, RBI
• Darin Erickson 1 for 4 On Monday evening Mora traveled to Brennan Field to take on rival Hinckley. The game turned into a walk fest with an incredibly high number of runners stranded. Hinckley pitcher allowed 19 walks and hit five Blue Devil batters. Mora had trouble taking full advantage of the free passes stranding 21 runners in the game. Mora broke through in the third to take a 2-0 lead. Both Greg Chmiel and Erik Raivo drew bases loaded walks to plate the runs. After leaving the bases loaded for four straight innings, Mora finally took some advantage of free passes scoring six runs in the sixth inning. Three walks and three hit batters helped lead to the big inning. Aaron Nelson had a big RBI single in the inning. Mora would tack on single runs in the seventh and eighth innings to make the score 10-0. However, Hinckley did avoid the 10-run rule by scoring its only run in the bottom of the eighth inning. Starter Asa Patterson was rock solid once again for the Blue Devils. Patterson threw seven shut out innings allowing five hits, three walks, and striking out seven. Reliever Chase Oslin pitched the last two innings. Oslin struck out five and walked four during his stint allowing the only Knight run of the game. Offensive leaders: • Aaron Nelson 2 for 4 2 RBIs • Erik Raivo 1 for 2 3 BBs • Greg Chmiel 2 for 5 RBI • Ryan VanSomeren 1 for 2 • Dylan Graves 1 for 6 RBI Mora will continue a busy stretch. After playing at Chisago Lakes on Wednesday, July 11 Mora will be hosting Nowthen on Saturday, July 14 in a doubleheader starting at 2:00. Sunday, July 15 Mora will host a very good Princeton team at 2 p.m..

The h ffollowing ll Minnesota Department off Naturall Resources conservation officer weekly reports explain the activities performed by Division of Enforcement personnel in protecting Minnesota’s natural resources through effective law enforcement and education. Provided by the MN DNR on July 10, 2018. Mora: Conservation Officer Mike Krauel spent the week checking anglers and working boat and water safety. He also assisted at the Conservation Officer Academy. Enforcement action was taken for no personal ﬂotation devices, no angling license and possession of drug paraphernalia. Cambridge: Conservation Officer Angela Londgren worked boat and water patrol over the busy holiday week. Londgren also checked anglers and conducted commercial inspections. Complaints were handled on nuisance animals, public water violations, and harassment of wildlife. Enforcement action was taken for angling without a license, watercraft registration violations, watercraft operating after hours without lights, PFD violations, and jet ski operation after hours. Hinckley: Conservation Officer Grundmeier spent a majority of the week patrolling area lakes during the Fourth of July. Quite a few boaters were found without enough life jackets and a few anglers were found ﬁshing without licenses. While patrolling past one group of anglers ﬁshing from a pontoon, an adult was seen dropping her ﬁshing rod and hustling to the opposite side of the pontoon in hopes of not getting caught ﬁshing without a license. Grundmeier also continued to work with farmers who had calves killed by wolves. Pine City: Conservation Officer Eugene Wynn spent the week working boating and angling enforcement around Pine City. He took calls about nuisance animals, questions about nowake zones, and concerns about people shooting ﬁreworks. Wynn assisted the Pine County Sheriff’s Office with a search and rescue operation and spent time monitoring ATV complaint areas. Bear and deer sightings are frequent now. Motorists are encouraged to be extra careful on the roads as the bugs are driving animals out of the wooded areas.

MHS German Club embarks on international adventure CONTRIBUTED MORA HIGH SCHOOL GERMAN CLUB
The Mora High School German Club returned home from their 17-day adventure late on June 27. After spending five nights with host families in southern Germany (in their exchange city Ludwigsburg), they went on to visit three other German-speaking countries: Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Austria. Mora High School German teacher Amanda Stenberg described some obstacles they took on. “We climbed mountains, faced Dachau concentration camp, zip-lined over Rhine waterfalls, reenacted ‘The Sound of Music,’ entered famous castles, connected with host families, swam in alpine lakes, climbed in medieval ruins, spoke German, hiked, hiked, hiked, and consumed copious amounts of Wienerschnitzel and ice cream. Each of us is stronger for having gone through this experience. Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible,” she said. MHS German Club plans to continue their tradition of traveling with the Pine City and Hinckley German Clubs again in June of 2020.
