Area news digest MILBANK, SD-The Grant County Public Library announces the opening of Its fourth branch library, "Grant County Mini-Library IV," located on main street Strandburg. The organization and support for this satellite library was initiated by Dee Dee Enquist, the branch librarian at both the Stockholm and new Strandburg locations, Strandburg Mayor and Mrs. Leonard "Mike" Rufer and many dedicated citizens of the Strandburg community. Grant County Mini- Library IV will house between 2,000 and 3,000 books and videos for all ages and has access to the book collection at the main library, according to Grant County Library Director Robin Schrupp. Branch librarians regularly rotate their holdings and will take reserves upon request. The Mini-Library in Strandburg is the fourth such satellite library to be established in the county. The first was opened in May 1982 at Big Stone City, followed closely by a second branch at Revillo in November the same year. Mini-Library II was established in the town of Stockholm in 1991 and was of such benefit to the community that Strandburg also requested one. GLENWOOD-For Rainbow Rider, disaster has been least for the next three and a half months. Last week both Grant and Traverse Counties rescinded earlier motions to drop out of the Rainbow Rlder Transit System, but have agreed to stay on until June 1. Grant County commissioners were able to work out a compromise with MnDOT representative, Tom Gottfried. He has been working with the Rainbow Rider West Central Multi-County Joint Powers Transit Board, current Rainbow Rider administration and third-party contractor, Angen Transportation Inc., to resolve differences. Grant County commissioners feel there are four points which will have to be met to remain a member of the five-county transit program beyond June. These changes include: a guaranteed minimum bus access in the Grant County; a cap on the maximum local share for which a member can be held responsible; seniors to be allowed to self-dispatch when utilizing the volunteer driver component and that out of project area trips be allowed. Traverse County agreed to delay its attempt to leave Rainbow Rider in an effort to give MnDOT time to provide new proposals directed toward a new service design for new riders. cANBY-In some good news, the Yellow Medicine County Board of Commissioners learned recently that the Department of Natural Resources has issued a permit for the construction of the Lazarus Creek Dam, which would be located near Canby. The permit is good until Jan. 31, 2001, said chairperson, JoAnn Coover. The commissioners hope that the issuance of the permit will help the project gain additional funding from the State Legislature. Coover said that Rep. Marty Seifert has introduced legislation asking the state to provide $1.5 million for the structure. Sen. Charlie Berg is expected to introduce similar legislation in the Senate. APPLETON-The Appleton City Council set the removal of the Mill Pond Dam in motion as they approved bids to at a special meeting Wednesday, Feb. 17. The base bid accepted calls for the removal of the dam, rip rapping in the area, some landscaping near Appleton Farm Chemicals and under the Hering Street bridge. Landwehr Construction of St. Cloud had the lowest bid at $129,180. They will begin demolition within the next two weeks. The Council discussed the project as a whole. The State has granted Appleton $300,000 towards the removal of the dam. Questioned was the time line to utilize the funding. City Clerk Roman Fidler felt that there was at least one year to use the funding and that this will be accomplished.
