Email today from Pink and Barb Toner of Tucson, AZ. Just finished reading this week's paper. Enjoyable as always, BUT?!?! You were a little premature writing off the U of M basketball season. THE WOMEN ARE STILL PLAYING AND PLAY- ING WELL. The women have sur- passed their expectations this year and are still going strong. They played a great game against the high- er seeded Stanford. You could have wished them well in the Sweet Sixteen this weekend. Stay on your toes Jim!?! Keep up the good work. "Hi" from your good friend Bill Toner and he agrees with me???? Hey guys, we apologize, we were a bit premature - the gals are doing great and the guys are looking good in the .... NIT? ***** One of the big questions often heard about the "Iraqi Freedom" war is who is going to pay for the high cost of the war...expected to run over $70 billion. The answer should be simple. Let the Iraqi nation, when freed of its evil Saddam, pay for the war with profits from their oil fields! Simple as that! Yet another small worlder! Recently, we were waiting in a metro office, and talking to one of the receptionists about Hobo Soup. No sooner did we turn around, and a lady sitting in the same waiting area said "are you Jim Kaercher? I thought so!" She did look familiar. We sat down and had a nice chat with Joan (nee Peterson) Carlson, a sister to Dee Strege of Ortonville. Joan was one of 10 children born to the late Ruben Petersons. She graduated from OHS in 1957. She and husband Steve live in Fridley, and she works as a legal secretary for the large Dorsey-Whitney law firm in Mpls. & brief note from Carol, (nee Conrad) Reiland and her mother Rose Conrad, in Northfield, as they renew: "Dear guys...Mom and I really enjoy your news and keeping abreast of things. Regards to all." More news from readers renew- ing. Jim and Phyllis (nee Parker) Whiteside from California say they "plan to visit here when the warm weather arrives. Phyllis enjoys keep- ing in contact with 'good old' Ortonville through your paper every week." And from Orange Park, Florida, Bob and Jeanette Nelson say: "I am celebrating my birthday today, but hope to be able to read your paper for a few years more. I especially enjoy your column, Jim, along with other news from my hometown, occasionally. Jeanette and I came here to Orange Park, Florida the latter part of January to be with our oldest daughter, as her son left about then for Kuwait with the Marines, so we wanted to be with her for awhile, at least. Hope to see you later this spring. Best wishes." ***** Reader and summer-time resident Morrie Hoffman of Knoxville, TN., sends us a clipping from a paper in Knoxville with a headline reading "Military Jet's fly-by scares town; pilot did it for grandma." Morrie says the story "reminds me of a time in 1943 in Bellingham, when Capt. Robert Yonker buzzed the town in his B-25 bomber. His father owned the local meat market. I was at the Farmers Elevator at the time. He made two low pass- es over town. People were concerned! It was later learned it was the hometown boy!" Good friend Harlen (J.R.) Parker writes today: Just a note to say, the letters to you from Jim Foster and Mrs. Weeding were two of the best letters to the editor that the Independent has ever printed. They really hit the nail square on the head? Now with the prospect of a dialysis machine at the hospital in the offer- ing, and an assisted living facility projected, Ortonville is really on the move (in the right direction! ?), I hope some of you folks will write to your governor beseeching him to leave funds in his budget to support "Monarch Heights", it would be a great boon to the folks living there, and to the whole community. ***** Big Stone Cooperative merges with Cenex Harvest States Effective September 1, 2003, Big Stone Cooperative will become part of Cenex Harvest States, as a result of the merger passed on Thursday. In a 2/3 majority vote, the Big Stone Cooperative patrons voted in favor of a merger between Big Stone Co-op and CHS. In September, Big Stone Cooperative will become part of the regional cooperative. CHS is currently the supplier for Big Stone Cooperative, and the new cooperative will be part of a larger group. Originally, the merger was set to be a three-part merger, including Big Stone Co-op, Farmers Cooperative of Wilmot, SD, and State Line Elevator in Madison. , Big Stone Co-op and Farmers Co-op in Wilmot voted in favor of the merger. State Line Elevator was taken out of the merger agreement. According to Big Stone Cooperative's General Manager Mel Domine, there were two main reasons for the merger. It will secure equity for the future for patrons and improve Big Stone Cooperative's competitive position in the market, which will bring a benefit to current producers. As a result of the merger, Big Stone Cooperative will save in insur- ance costs, and there will be better terms for money borrowed. By merg- ing, they will become part of a larger insurance group that will reduce insurance costs by 40%. Interest on moneY borrowed will be cut by 1.3% and the Co-op will have a $2 million line of credit. The current board will appoint three members from the Big Stone Cooperative board to serve on the new board. This new board will name the new cooperative, establish the home/legal office, and designate the new Cooperative's districts. Five office sites, at Clinton, Ortonville, Milbank, Madison and Wilmot will remain in place, however the new cooperative will have one general manager and one accounting system. Domine does not expect many changes to local operations, and says the purpose of the merger is to maxi- mize purchasing power, not to cut the jobs of local employees.
