Capri Theatre shows free holiday movies In celebration of the holidays the Capri Theatre in Lake City feels that ‘family’ is the key ingredient, therefore the Capri is offering free admission to all shows starting Friday, Dec. 6 through Dec. 29. Movies shown at the Capri in the month of December are some of the past traditional top box office hits. There is something unique about watching a movie such as “Polar Express” from the Dolby sound and in 2D. Janelle Nesbitt, Capri Board member who orders movies says, “It is so sad for the past 5 or 6 years there have been no Christmas family movies being released by ‘Hollywood’.” So, the Capri wanted to put family movies for the holidays back up on the screen. Shows are: “Polar Express” Dec. 6-8; “Alvin and the Chipmunks”

Dec. 13-15; “All I Want for Christmas” Dec. 20-22; and “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas” Dec. 27-29 with show times at 7:30 p.m. Friday, and Saturday with a matinee at 2 p.m. on Sunday.

Rockwell City has tour of homes

be available for purchase at each home on the day of the tour. All proceeds from this event will be used to advance the Gardens on 4th Park project. The first three phases of the project have been completed through the support of private donations, fundraisers, contributions from the Rockwell City Revitalization Committee and grant money from the Calhoun County Community Foundation. Additional funds are needed to start the fourth phase next year and work toward completion of the project. As always, private donations are welcome and very much appreciated.

Digging out and filling in

Final work on the lot, that began with demolition of a vacant building at the southwest corner of Court and Fourth St. in Rockwell City and then expanded when a neighboring business was damaged, neared completion last week. City Clerk Kelly Smidt said there has been interest expressed in developing the lot but no business plan has been submitted yet. (Graphic-Advocate photo by Ken Ross)

Full-time attorney gets full-time designation By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate Editor Tina Meth-Farrington says she hears chuckles whenever she tells people she is a part-time county attorney. There is a full caseload for the Calhoun County attorney and all of those who work with her regard the position as full-time. The same situation was true for her predecessor, Cindy Voorde, who worked full time in the position but never attempted to get the official designation changed for the job. It is an elected position regardless of whether it’s defined as full-time or part-time The only practical impact of the different classification is that a part-time county attorney has the option of having a private practice. However, neither Voorde nor MethFarrington has wanted a private practice. At the Nov. 26 Calhoun County Board of Supervisors meeting, Meth-Farrington requested that the position be reclassified as full-time. “I would like to have the position classified as a full-time position. I’m not asking for any additional pay, additional staff or anything like that,” she said. She noted that she is particularly busy at this time. There are 21 indictable cases pending in her office, including eight felonies. There is also a civil commitment case pending of commitment to the Civil Commitment Unit for Sexual

Offenders. Her assistant, Erik Howe, is leaving his position in June. He handles magistrate cases and most of the legal research. He also steps in for Meth-Farrington when needed. “I’m there every day, open or closed, my phone is never off. I’m on call 24 hours a day,” she said. By consensus, the supervisors directed Meth-Farrington to draft a resolution for their approval

reclassifying the county attorney position to full-time. *** The supervisors approved payment of health insurance fees for all county employees covered under the county’s health insurance plan, a reversal of a previous decision that the employees would need to pay the unexpected and unbudgeted fees. The fee resulting from the Affordable Care Act. There is a fee of

$14.25 per month per person covered under the plan, including dependents of employees. As originally decided that would mean a payment of $57 per month by the employee for a family of four but since the new decision by the supervisors, this fee will be covered by the county.

Vaccination article generates response By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate Editor Calhoun County Public Health officials assert that there were factual errors made in the Nov. 27 Graphic-Advocate article, “School vaccination error repeated.” Tami Mohr, public health coordinator, said that the reference to two flu vaccination permission forms being sent to one South Central Calhoun family was inaccurate. The article referred to a situation this fall in which two students with identical names in different grades from different families each received a flu shot although only one family had given permission. “A blank vaccine administration form is sent home with every student, so when it said both forms were sent home with one student, that’s not really right,” Mohr said, “One mother got on line and printed off a second form. So she filled out the form her daughter brought home and then when she said to her kids, ‘you’re going to get your flu shots in school,’ the one little girl said, ‘well I didn’t take in a form’ and the mother said, ‘you did, I filled it out,’ and the girl said, ‘I didn’t take it in’ so the mother said, ‘so, I got on line and printed off another one and filled out a second one’ so we didn’t send two specific forms to anyone. Every student got a form and parents can access those online.” Jane Condon, public health administrator, said that the

health department did over 3,000 immunizations in a year and 548 of them were school-based flu shots. Regarding the school-based program, Condon explained that there are schools in Calhoun County in five districts (actually four school systems, but the SCC school system is still two districts for purposes of filing paperwork until Southern Cal and Rockwell City/Lytton formally merge on July 1). Other districts with a school building in Calhoun County

include Manson Northwest Webster, Prairie Valley and Pocahontas Area. “We’ve been doing this for 30 years. We’re not new at it. It’s based on sound scientific principles,” Condon said. She said that she still believes school-based immunization is a good idea but public health is not going to object if SCC no longer has this program in its schools and will not stop providing the service to other school systems in the county.

(See letter to the editor from Condon in this edition for further explanation of the school-based program and further response to recent criticism.) Mohr said that last year, after a similar incident, Supt. Jeff Kruse posed a question to other school administrators in the area at a meeting hosted by Prairie Valley and attended by Mohr.

Crisis Center assists those most in need

By Ken Ross Graphic-Advocate Editor Stacey is a new director at the Family Crisis Center that serves victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in Calhoun and Carroll Counties. She has a complication to her objective of making the public aware of the services offered. Confidentiality is an essential part of the center’s operation. Not only do many of the clients feel humiliated by the situation they are in, seeking help could increase the danger for people still in a situation of domestic violence. Stacey personally keeps a low profile in public and requested that her last name not be included in the article. She will talk to anybody who approaches her but she will not initiate the contact with a client in public. Anyone who is a recent victim, or a victim of an ongoing situation, or is struggling with the trauma of a

past assault or abuse, can seek help at 1-800-382-5603, anytime. The Family Crisis Center provides the following: Hotline – a 24-hour service providing support, crisis intervention, general information and referrals to various agencies. Crisis Counseling – assistance to individuals in identifying safety, resources and options with advocacy regarding legal, medical and personal matters. Emergency Shelter – brief safehaven for victims of sexual assault and domestic violence and their dependents. Food and personal items are provided for shelter guests. Emergency & Transitional – housing for victims and their children who need a safe place to live for an extended period of time. Western Iowa Survivors of Homicide (WISH Unit) and Other Violent Crimes – A victim service specialist helps families through a difficult time. Services are available

24/7 – 712-899-6382. This article was motivated by Jennifer Vaughn who went to Lake City High School with the class of 1998 but leaving early because of her situation. She now lives in California. She contacted the newspaper after reading an article in the Nov. 13 Graphic-Advocate - “Keeping track of sex offenders.” She wrote that she was sexually assaulted when she was in high school and intimidated by threats to keep silent. She has subsequently learned that at least one other person had a similar experience in Lake City during this time period. She requested that anyone else having this experience in that time frame in that area contact her. She promises to keep all inquiries and information confidential.

Empty Nest By Curt Swarm

Cover Crops

Letter to the Editor: at a school-based immunization clinic, consent forms are distributed to parents, either through the school website or sent home with kids from school. Parents complete the form, then return the completed form to the school where they are compiled by teacher and grade. When the public health nurse arrives on the day of the clinic, school staff identifies the child and presents child and matching consent form to the public health nurse who also verifies student name and administers the shot. Due to the many steps and people involved, this is not, or ever will be, a perfect system. The expectation to be error-free every time in every step of this process is unrealistic. Public Health has never and will never tell anyone that an error will never be made. For that to happen, all three responsible groups have to be perfect - 100% of the time. Mistakes are rare but understandably distressing for families and all staff involved. As stated by the Center for Disease Control, risk is minimized by the fact that flu vaccines have a very good safety track record, and provide benefits that far outweigh the risks, such as disease prevention, unnecessary medical costs and absences from work and school. This season, 548 flu shots were given to students in four local schools, an

Roger Harrington shows off a field of soybean stubble that has been sown with a cover crop of rye grass. soybeans. Thirdly, the cover crop is scavenging unused nutrients in the soil that might otherwise runoff into the groundwater. Crops of corn or soybeans are much better prepared to survive a drought if a cover crop is used. Also, and this is a big plus, less fertilizer is required in the spring. Some of the cover-crop plants are legumes, which fix nitrogen into the soil, therefore requiring less purchased nitrogen for fertilizer. Also, some cover-crop plants have allelopathic qualities that inhibit germination and growth of weed seeds.

Cost? Aerial application runs about $13 an acre, and cover-crop seed about $18 an acre. Compared to the cost of tilling, cover-crop technology is less expensive. Throw in the benefits to the environment, and it’s a win-win situation—for the farmer and the future. As Roger points out, “Sometimes, it’s just about doing the right thing.” Have a good story?

To the editor In response to the recent news article from the Nov 18 SCC School Board meeting printed on Nov 27, 2013, in the Graphic-Advocate: Calhoun County Public Health started providing local schoolbased immunizations in response to a state-wide measles, mumps and rubella outbreak in 1977. Since then, public health has worked to prevent or minimize the impact of vaccinepreventable diseases in our county. Vaccines offered in schools have been influenza, Tetanus diphtheria cellular pertussis (Tdap), and meningitis for students; Hepatitis B for school staff. 13 – 15-Year-Old Coverage of Individual Vaccines and Selected Vaccination Series (IDPH 2012) are: • Tdap – Calhoun County 71% Iowa 62% • Meningitis – Calhoun County 55% - Iowa 53% The SSC School Board meetings have focused on flu immunizations; the process is described below. School-based clinics require 3 important partners: public health, school staff, and parents. All must do their part to have a successful outcome. Fact Sheets and Consent forms are provide by public health. Parents are reminded they may see their local medical provider for flu vaccination. When parents choose to have children vaccinated

Have you noticed a that few fields of corn and soybean stubble are turning green, like in the spring? Have you also seen crop-dusting airplanes busy working like bees on non-harvested fields around the first of September? What the heck is going on? While buying squirrel corn from my farmer friend, Roger Harrington, of Ollie, Iowa, I noticed these large, dark, plastic containers stacked neatly beside his driveway. When I asked Roger what they were, he gave me a quizzical look. “Cover crop seed,” he said, like I should know. When I asked him what a cover crop was, he sighed, pushed his cap back on his forehead, leaned back against a stack of the containers, and proceeded to educate this one-timefarm-boy-turned-city-slicker about cover crops. Roger farms about 1,200 acres of corn, soybeans, and alfalfa on the rolling farm ground of Keokuk County. He has a degree in agronomy and ag ed from Iowa State University, taught Voc Ag for a couple of years, and is one of the most progressive farmers I know. For example, he has been practicing no-till farming since the 1980s—that means no plowing, no disking, and no ripping. In addition to crop farming, he is also a dealer in wildbird seed, corn and soybean seed, and now, cover-crop seed. On his home place is a beautiful pond full of ducks and geese. The pond has an island where geese nest. A herd of white goats dot the landscape, and beef cattle graze nearby. If there’s one thing Roger despises, it’s soil erosion. A second thing is fertilizer runoff. For the last five years, Roger has been aerial sowing cover-crop seed onto standing corn and soybean fields. He uses rye grass, cereal rye, crimson clover, Austrian winter peas, hairy vetch, sunn hemp, tillage radishes, turnip, and rape seed—sometimes by themselves, sometimes in mixtures (cocktails). Roger often acts as a consultant or adviser to farmers interested in cover crops. About 10% of farmers are now using cover crops, and interest is growing rapidly. Farm magazines are full of information. After sowing, the cover crop begins to grow almost immediately, and continues to grow while the corn or soybeans are harvested, and on through the winter and spring. The cover crop can actually be used for grazing. Most importantly, what the cover crop is doing is preventing soil erosion through the cold, windy, winter months, and rainy spring weather. Secondly, it is establishing a root base into what would otherwise be dead soil. This root base helps break up hard-packed soil, reestablishes a culture where earthworms and other organisms thrive, and provides decomposing matter that will feed the upcoming crop of corn or

CENTRAL SCHOOL REMEMBERS December, 1978 35 Years Ago Operation Sky Scan, the nation’s first state-wide infrared thermo gram program, will resume in Iowa again as soon as nighttime temperatures regularly drop below 30 degrees Fahrenheit. The purpose of the program is to identify those homes and other buildings which give the appearance of being poorly insulated so that their owners can take steps to add insulation and eliminate energy waste. The Chancel Choir of the Lake City Union Church, under the direction of Audrey Williams will present the Christmas musical drama “Amahl and the Night Visitors” by GianCarlo Mennotti. The cast includes Missy Huffman as Amahl, Maurine Rich as his mother, King Kaspan, Ted Janssen; King Melchior, John Thiezen; King Balthazan, Randy Larson; the Page, Steve O’Connor; The Dancer, Donita Smith.

New license plates began appearing on Iowa motor vehicles December 1 and the change in the appearance from the old plates is markedly different. With the new plates, the familiar numbers designating the counties in Iowa have disappeared. The county’s name is now recorded on the bottom of the plate. The new plates are white lettering raised on a green background, purportedly enhancing visibility. Mrs. Pauline Friedel returned home last Monday from a two week trip to Florida, she was accompanied

SUPERVISORS continued from page 1

The change of plan resulted from information give by Ron Haden, county engineer, to the supervisors, that the representative of the Communications Workers of America, which represents the county’s secondary roads department workers, is asserting that the new fee would violate the conditions of the collective bargaining agreement. The bargaining agreement as written sets the amount that the employee will pay for health insurance as a set dollar amount rather than what the employer would pay or what each would pay as a percentage of the total. There was still some disagreement by supervisors of whether the new fee could be considered an insurance premium as discussed in the collective bargaining agreement. However, there was no desire expressed to go through a grievance process. Haden said that the cost over the six months remaining in the current contract is estimated at $23,000 for all of the employees of the county, with about $8,000 for secondary roads workers, the only county workers represented by a labor organization and covered under a collective bargaining agreement. July 1 is the start of the fiscal year, when the new and as yet unknown insurance rate goes into effect and when the new collective bargaining agreement begins. Supervisors have traditionally based benefits

She said, “Jeff Kruse said, ‘What do you guys think? We’re thinking about stopping doing flu clinics in the schools,’ and the other schools said, “We don’t want to quit doing that.’ Southeast Webster, which happened to be at that meeting also, said, We have such a high population of students in poverty who will never get shots and everybody will get sick.’ None of the administrators at that meeting were thinking of stopping school shots.” Regarding the potential for not having the program in the future, Mohr said, “If we don’t do shots in schools, I feel it sets up barriers for those most in need, but I won’t push

They stopped at Plains, Georgia on their return trip. Kiwanians met Monday for their weekly meeting and toured Lynn Dobson’s new plant which houses his organ building operation. He recently completed renovation of the former Snyder implement building on the northeast corner of the city square and moved his unique business to that location. City residents have the opportunity to select the color, or colors, for the new water tower to be constructed in 1979. The city council decided at their December 18 meeting on this approach. They will accept recommendations until February 1, 1979. A special blank appears in this issue of the Graphic for this purpose. Guests Saturday evening in the home of Mrs. Walter Kraft for a potluck supper were Mr. and Mrs. Delbert Kraft and son Ronnie of Manson, Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Kraft and Mr. and Mrs. Lyle Kraft of Fort Dodge, Mr. and Mrs. J.

December, 1953 60 Years Ago Large numbers of interested citizens in Calhoun, Jackson and Lake Creek townships have attended the school reorganizational meetings which have been held in Lake City for non-contract workers on what the contract workers get. Insurance payments are made a month before the coverage period so payment for January through June insurance would be paid December through May. Judy Howrey, county auditor, pointed out that about $30,000 in other unbudgeted expense due in the present fiscal year already creates the need for a budget amendment session. Haden said he has contacted other counties about the situation asking how fees will be paid. In eight, it would all be paid by the employer, in two the cost would be split in accordance with the contract and three counties are undecided. The supervisors all indicated that they don’t want to treat the noncontract workers differently than the contract workers. “We definitely don’t want a separation. We don’t want to treat different employees differently,” Supervisor Dean Hoag said. Regarding a request by the CWA that negotiations for the next contract begin in December, Steve Goins, secondary roads supervisor, said, “We’re not going to be able to negotiate in December and get anything done. It’ll be February before we know anything about our insurance rates.” Supervisor Scott Jacobs said, “Since, I’ve been here, secondary roads workers have been reasonable about contract negotiations. There haven’t been any outlandish demands.” to stay in that school. I don’t feel wanted there.” Mohr strongly objected to a statement by school board member Ron Maulsby about a mother of the erroneously vaccinated child accusing the public health department and the school of treating her ‘horribly.’ “This woman came to my office and told me she was very sorry, none of that was true. Neither she nor her husband stated she was treated horribly by our staff,” Mohr said. Another objection Mohr had with the article was that there was no mention in the article of the fact that no one from public health was present at the meeting being covered to respond to allegations.

The Calhoun County Office of Veteran Affairs has issued a fraud alert: Veterans should be aware of a marketing scam targeting callers trying to reach the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) National Call Center or GI Bill Call Center. A marketing company has established two fraudulent numbers that differ from the two official VA call center numbers by one digit. If the fraudulent number is dialed by mistake, the answering party will offer a gift card and try to obtain personal and financial information, including credit card information, from the caller. The answering party may even transfer the caller to the VA after the caller’s information is obtained. Note that VA will never ask you for a credit card number or banking information over the phone. Before giving personal sensitive information over the phone make sure you know who you are taking to. The numbers to be avoided are: 800-872-1000 (the VA National Call Center number is 800-8271000) 888-442-4511 (the VA GI Bill Call Center number is 888-442-4551)

ADAZA

Adaza Thursday Club’s December meeting will be a Christmas dinner on the 5th at noon in the meeting room of the Lohrville Library. Moni Moran and Jane Beschorner are hosting. Members attending are asked to bring a plate of cookies or sweets. Instead of a gift exchange, donations of money or non-perishable goods will be given to local food pantries. Following the meeting the club will be setting up their entry for the Festival of Trees sponsored by the Lohrville Friends of the Library. The public is invited to visit the colorful displays beginning on Friday the 6th of December from 9 am to 6 pm. It

will be open Saturday and Sunday from 9 am to 5 pm. The next week you’re welcome to see the lights during regular Library hours: 9:30 am to 6 pm, except on Thursday when it closes at 1 pm. Annette Rossmanith’s birthday was on the 3rd of December – wonderful wishes to her! Kelly Schmitt of Englewood, CO, was a supper and overnight guest at Paul and Pat Schmitt’s on Nov. 24th. Belated Happy Thanksgiving wishes from all of us around Adaza! Anyone having an item for Adaza news may contact Pat Schmitt at 515-389-3737.

SUNNY KNOLL

We hope that everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! We had fun decorating turkey cookies for a cookie social and we also filled our “turkey cups.” Earlier in the month we had painted cups and then glued feathers and faces on them. So we filled them with popcorn and candies to go by everyone’s setting for Thanksgiving. We also had a game of Turkey Bingo! Between the food and the games we were full and tired. It is hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner. We have been getting ready for our annual Christmas party. We will be hosting our residents Christmas party on December 16, 2013 at 5:30 p.m. We

are looking forward to singing some carols with Bill and Linda Haeder. The kitchen will also be serving a supper for everyone to enjoy. I am so excited for the Christmas party. Myself along with the help of my fellow department heads have been working on fundraising the last few months so that we can buy each resident a gift to open the night of the party. So if you cannot join us for the party, just want to remind you that we have men’s coffee every Friday morning at 9:30. We also have tunes and treats every Tuesday at 2 p.m. and an ice cream social every Friday at 2 p.m. Stop in and see us! Jennifer Roberts~Activity Director

SUNNYVIEW

Thanksgiving was a good day to count our blessings. One of the blessings might be food! Do you like turkey with dressing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes with gravy, green bean casserole and pumpkin pie? Residents and guests enjoyed that delicious meal here at Sunnyview. Thank you to our kitchen staff! While we’re at it, let’s thank more people. Thank you to our Fire Department and Emergency Medical people. Thank you to our Rockwell City Police Department and Calhoun County Law Enforcement people. Thank you to our state troopers, who keep track of road conditions so we know whether we should go out - and then they help us when we go out anyway and manage to get ourselves into a bind. Where would we be without all of them? So, after your Thanksgiving meal, did you spend the rest of the day watching football on television? Maybe you were decking the halls or taking a nap in preparation for the midnight shopping on “black Friday.” Some stores may have started black Friday shopping during Thursday afternoon. Although it is a lot of work, there is an added benefit of baking your own turkey – leftovers! After a few days of that, you may be ready for a change – how about baked fish, like they fix here at Sunnyview. It always looks delicious. (By the way, do you know what the most expensive fish is? “Gold fish.”) The Sunnyview kitchen is busy during the holidays

- many Sunnyview residents invite their guests to join them here to eat. Do you remember where you were on December 7, 1941, the “day that will live in infamy?” What were you doing when you heard the radio broadcast that the United States had been attacked? We remember Pearl Harbor Day on Saturday. Also, we may reflect on the recent 50 year commemoration of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Many of us remember where we were when we heard the news. On a lighter note, those of us who are fans of the science fiction television series “Dr. Who” may remember that Nov. 23, 1963 was the airing of the first episode. A traveler reported that the corn harvest is still going on in parts of eastern Iowa. We have heard of instances when certain fields were not harvested until the following spring. What is the latest harvest that you remember? Since Christmas is coming, that brings to mind the giving of gifts. Here is a gift-related story that we came across. An older and a younger man were the only survivors after a ship was lost during a terrible storm. The younger man bemoaned their fate on the tiny island, but the older man said, “It’s okay. We are certain to be found.” “How can you know that?” the younger man asked. The older man replied, “I give a lot of money every year to my alma mater and I pay a lot of taxes. Don’t worry. They’ll find me.”

Meals served Dec. 9 through Dec. 13 at the Rockwell City Community Center (712)-297-7401. Monday – Spaghetti w/Meat Sauce. Broccoli, French Bread. Parmesan Cheese, Apricot Halves Tuesday – Roast Pork w/ Hamburger Bun, Baked beans, Rice Raisin Pudding, Raspberry

Lemonade Wednesday – Ham Loaf, Sweet Potatoes, Calico Corn, Strawberries Thursday – Chili w/Beans, Tangy Coleslaw, Corn Bread, Oranges & Pineapple Friday – Baked Chicken, Baked Potatoes, Green Peas, Raisin Applesauce, Tomato Juice

SENIOR MENUS

New signage adorns Shady Oaks neighborhoods

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

As you enter each of the Shady Oaks’ neighborhoods, it is now very clear which one you are entering. The new signage, crafted by Artistic Sign and Design out of Omaha, better represents the World Class look and feel that we strive for. The old signs were very small and dark, which made them hard to read, especially for the failing eyes that many older people have.

At inception, each neighborhood was named after a U.S. President. We continued this theme but made a minor change so that our Memory Support Household had a formal name; it is now called Madison Neighborhood. We are excited about this update and invite you to take a peek next time you are at Shady Oaks.

Answers from: 11/27/13

This week’s sponsor:

My thought for the day is: I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older. Then it dawned on me. They were cramming for their finals. This is from at Maunu’s computer. The Trivia Question is: In 1836 when Michigan became a state Iowa became a part of what newly created territory! I spent Thanksgiving in the home of my son Bob and Deb Knapp in Urbandale, a lot of my family was there from Manson, Prairie City; the Jeff Lane family was there as well. It was a lovely day and there was a lot of food. I am a Great Grandmother again; my granddaughter who lives in Albuquerque had a baby girl Clair Christine Bryant on November 27th! Happy Anniversary to Gary and Nila Spencer. Congratulation Spencer’s! Dorothy Siemann hosted her family for a Thanksgiving dinner; they came from Lake City, Des Moines, and Auburn. Phyllis Calwell went to Clinton to daughter Sara’s and then to Cedar Rapids to her sister’s for

Thanksgiving. The Advent Study for the United Methodist Church will start on December 4th at the Parsonage. Everyone is invited. Hope you all attended the Lohrville Fire Dept. omelet breakfast on December 1st. We depend on them so much and your donation is much appreciated. The Kick off to Christmas is Friday the 6th of December with Chili and Hot Dogs being served Events are the Christmas Tree Lighting at the Gazebo, Santa arriving at the Library to get children’s requests. The Festival of Trees will be at the Community Building. The Lohrville Annual Cookie Walk will be on that date also. Come and see the beautiful trees. The Story Hour for Audrie’s Angels is meeting at the JJ Hands Library on Mondays and Thursdays. The answer to the Trivia question is: Wisconsin Territory. Have a good week. Anyone having an item for Lohrville news may contact Bette Knapp at 712-465-3295.
