The Dollar General Store is in the beginning stages of being built just east of the school bus garage in Cromwell. The CACC'S Gazebo next to Northview Bank is also in the process of being built, too. Then, a huge warehouse building is being built just north of Cromwell on Highway 73.
The Farmer's Cooperative Co. purchased D. C. Behren's Store building, organized and opened it for business June 3, 1919. Shares were $10 each and it was incorporated with $10,000 and annual sales of $60,000. Shares are still only $10, and you must have a share to be a voting member of the co-op.

Cromwell-Wright's Cheyenne Smith was even highlighted on the KBJR 6 news, stating: "I think that my favorite part about it was just being able to come here and see everyone else's bridges, and what they did, and different designs they had." Great engineering was done by all students,
I was able to pull a couple of April Fool's Day pranks on our grandson, but no one even tried to pull one on me. I told Matthew to come and see the deer tracks on his patio in Cloquet. Then, as he was taking out the garbage, I told him the bag was leaking all over the floor, which were both April Fool's tricks. So, nothing big this year.
