Our sympathy to the family of Trudy Holm, who died July 3, 2010, in Moose Lake. Her funeral was conducted by Pastor Janeva Stromberg on Friday, July 9, at Bethany Lutheran Church in Cromwell. So, to her husband, George, daughters Carmen and Mike Martin and Candy Holm-Anderson, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, sisters and family, we offer our sincere sympathy.
Lawrence Berg received a call from St. Luke’s Hospice that his sister Lucille died on June 10, 2010. She was 87 and is survived by her brother Lawrence and sister Agnes. They thank all for their prayers and good thoughts during her illness. A private family interment is in the planning stage.
The Primary Election will be held Aug. 10 in Minnesota. Some area residents have already received their ballots in the mail and they need to be filled out and returned before that date or brought to the courthouse on or before Aug. 10. Since this is a primary, you will have to vote Republican, Democratic or Independent to make your vote valid. There is also the question about the school authorization to issue general obligation school building bonds in the amount not to exceed $495,000. We have passed this vote several times in the past so this is no different. We want to keep our tax money in the district.

Here’s the latest on the upcoming Lake Country Power election about rate regulation: Its expected ballots on the MPUC rate regulation vote will be in member mailboxes late this month. The ballot will ask members to vote on whether or not Lake Country Power will be subject to additional government review and jurisdiction by the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission.
I had a fantastic weekend enjoying time with my family at the John and Jennie Tveit family reunion. It all started out with the wedding of Becky Bolstad, daughter of Dave and Ann Bolstad, to Matthew Jonas at the original John Tveit family homestead in Halden Township. Then on Sunday, the Dahlmans and Bolstads got together for a meal, program, visiting, story telling, singing and joking around. Later the Dahlmans met at the Matalamaki homestead for more of the same.
