_//, By JDK Some thoughts we'd like to express as we near the end of the cur- rent century: More and more we feel our nation is losing its moral stan- dards, and there's more greed for the almighty dollar (which we remember our late father often said would be the ruin of America). It all seems to get worse as time goes on. A crying shame it was that the past year found millions of tax dollars being spent to defend a President who first lied and then admitted to the lie, and he con- tinues today in office to shame the Presidency because he wasn't man enough to resign, and because Congress, almost to a man, didn't have the guts to oust him "because our country is running so smoothly" and nobody wanted to upset the apple-cart, so to speak. His friends are all gutless, too, for had enough of them been manly enough, they would have asked him to resign. The sickest part of it all is, if the polls are right, the people of our great nation, think what he does matters not, because times are so rosy. Hardest to stomach is a report we read in the Minneapolis Tribune last week saying "leading feminists in our nation say that President Clinton should be remem- bered for producing unprecedented gains for women, not for his sexual conduct." Are there no morals any- where?! Really, we wonder if the polls are right, or where they were conducted! And as for greed for the dollar, you best kiss goodbye right now the Vikings team of 1998. There are so many free agents who care only for the dollar bill that most of them will leave for another team ... caring little about their fans or fellow teammates to try again for a trip to the Super Bowl in the year 2000! And a final note on President Clinton. Have you noticed that each time he has faced the nation on tele- vision regarding his Lewinsky affair, even when offering his final apology after being acquitted on impeachment last week, he has never spent more than a fleeting second looking the viewer squarely in the eye! Can you trust such a man? We still think he should be held accountable to some extent for his actions ..;. tebest idea, as we've said before, being to strip him of all his Presidential benefits after leaving office, including pay ... let him return to the streets as a com- mon man ! i Our sincere apologies to several readers who we may have inadvertently offended with details of a story in last week's issue about the "not guilty pleading" to criminal sexual conduct. We know our reporter did not mean to harm anyone's feelings! We wish readers throughout the nation would be equally as sensitive to the shameful choice of words used in the recent Clinton-Lewinsky investigations!! Of course, two wrongs don't make a right: Another Gopher cage season is upon us ... and we say it again, the officiating is as lousy as ever. It's been terrible for the past half-century. Will it ever improve!? We wonder. One of the worst cases was during last Saturday's Gopher-Michigan State game. Clearly, the game was given to MS from the free-throw line! A real shame! The Gopher loss at Iowa a few days earlier was not much better! Pete Christensen, Odessa native now in Maple Grove, sends renewal and writes "now that we both have granddaughters, Jim, it's time to quit going over the water-ski jumps. Keep up the good work on the hometown news, it means so much to all of us who live away from the Ortonville area." A small worlder from Lorrayne Karn, wintering as usual with hus- band Rich in the southland, "Our daughter Jayne Stecker works at the Good Shepherd Villa as Manager Consultant and one of the residents asked were she was from, she said a small town in Minnesota named Ortonville. He asked her if she knew Lem Kaercber and of course told him es. He said I did the Landscaping for him at his house back in 1941. His name is Russ Zacharison and did own a landscaping business at Hopkins. She was so surprised!" Bud Knippen, Chairman of the Salvation Army in this area, is happy to report that TCI Cable has presented a check to the Salvation Army from their Christmas Promotion. Harsh winter weather taking toll on blood supply Severe winter storms following the busy holiday season have dramatical- ly affected blood supply levels nation- wide, according to officials of the American Red Cross. Major metropolitan areas like Chicago and Detroit virtually shut down for days, forcing blood donors to stay at home while snow emer- gency crews worked to clear city streets and highways. In the North Central Blood Services region -- which includes parts of Minnesota, western Wisconsin, northern Iowa, and eastern South Dakota -- the call for blood donors is being stepped up to assure that local blood supplies remain ade- quate and to help other Red Cross blood centers that have issued emer- gency appeals for blood. Blood collections in this region were short by several hundred units immediately following the New Year holiday weekend. In Mason City, Iowa, for example, scheduled blood- mobiles were operational but collec- tions were 30 percent less than antici- pated due to 13 inches of snow blan- keting the city and surrounding com- munities. North Central Blood Services has taken action to ensure that the blood supply remains stable enough to serve thousands of hospital patients in the region needing life-sustaining transfu- sions on a day-to-day basis. The Red Cross Donor Center in St. Paul held a special Saturday drive on January 2 to help compensate for anticipated col- lection shortfalls. Additionally, all volunteer community bloodmobile coordinators holding drives over the next few days and weeks are being urged to recruit as many first-time and repeat donors as possible. "We are all very fortunate that res- idents of the Upper Midwest have a strong tradition of chipping-in to help their friends and neighbors during tough times," said Dr. Robert Bowman, chief executive officer of North Central Blood Services. "Even in the worst possible weather condi- tions, the need for blood never changes and we encourage all eligible donors to make an extra special effort to schedule and keep appointments to give." To help bolster collections, the Red Cross has scheduled the following bloodmobile for your area; Marietta Senior Citizens Center, March 2, 1-6 p.m., walk-ins are wel- come. Call: Arlene 605-678-2479, Betty, 320-668-2535. Anyone who is at least 17 years of age, weighs at least 110 pounds, and is considered to be in good health may be eligible to donate blood. There is no upper age limit. For more informa- tion, contact the American Red Cross at 651-291-4607 or 1-800-GIVE- LIFE. Peterson announces $932,000 grant for city of Clinton The City of Clinton will receive a $932,000 state grant to assist its com- prehensive citywide improvement program, Rep. Doug Peterson announced today. "I congratulate everyone in Clinton who has had a hand in this important and forward-looking pro- ject, and I'm pleased the State of Minnesota is able to help," Peterson, of rural Madison, said. "This program will help the city modernize its infra- structure and housing stock, making Clinton a better place to live and a more attractive place to do business.

The money will help pay for improvements to the city's waste- water treatment plant and sanitary sewer lines and for a program to reha- bilitate 30 owner-occupied homes. The city is also scheduled to receive funding from the Minnesota Public Facilities Authority for the project. "This program addresses two of the most critical needs in our smallest rural communities, housing and infra- structure," Peterson said. "To attract new jobs and development to rural areas, we need quality, affordable housing to workers and good public services." The grant comes from the Small Cities Development Program under the Minnesota Department of Trade & Economic Development. The funds were provided by a 1997 appropria- tion from the Minnesota Legislature. "This is a competitive grant pro- gram, which means approval is not automatic," Peterson said. "There were 78 applications submitted to the program, and Clinton's proposal was one of the 33 that received funding. Everyone involved with the program can be proud of a job well done."
