We are both saddened and elated by the news of late that Larry and Elaine Cartwright have sold their business, Cartwright Drug to long- time employees Mike and Pat Carlson. We will truly miss the friendship and leadership of the Cartwrights, who have been such very dear friends for so many years...and which friendship we trust will continue. At the same time, we are extremely happy for Mike and Pat and wish them the very, very best in their new venture as owners. We know Mike and Pat will continue the operation with the same integrity and faithfulness to service as did Larry and Elaine! Best wishes to all con- cerned! Our Support is with you all! True, we all have our per- sonal problems; whatever they may be or whatever the cause. But one good cure for them, if you think the world is crashing down on you, is to &apos; just take a walk through any hospital or nursing home. Upon departure, you'll find yourself, as we did on Monday of this week, just thanking God for your health. How true it is, health and peace of mind are the greatest blessings on earth. Our deepest prayers go out to all in the world, especially in our local community, who are suffering to any degree. God bless you all! We received this e-mail last week from Troy Kramer. It was sent to him by Bruce Wellendoff of Ortonvil]e," "Hello everyone, I was listening to KDIO radio today here in Ortonville and they were talking about a new reality television show which is going to be on ABC this evening. It is called "The Bachelor" and appar- ently it will be on each Monday night for the next six weeks. Anyway, they said that one of the women 9n the show is going to be an Ortonville native by the name of Kimberly Karels. She is the daughter of Pete Karels, so of course that would make her Missy Karels sister. I did a quick internet search and found a website for the show with information on the contestants. Here is a link to the page on K/m: < time/specials/bachelor/bios/Kimberly .html>" Friend Larry Roggenbuck has just returned from a couple months vacation, doing some travel in the southland. He remarked to us that at every stop of the trip....a total of five...visiting relatives and friends, "the Independent was there!" Nice to hear...thanks Larry! What a shame it is that our society is becoming one with so much over- emphasis on the fact that "money talks!" We cite the news today that U of M Gopher Women's basketball coach Brenda Oldfield will be leav- ing the U of M after only a year here to take a smaller job at Maryland...primarily because of money. It seems contracts mean noth- ing today, nor does pride in having coached her team to one of the best records in history for women cagers at the U! A couple e-mail congrats to our Trojan cagers today. Nathan Streed writes: Its not often that Ortonville gets press in the Willmar West Central Tribune Sports sec- tion, but this past Saturday and Monday there were two pictures of Tanner Rademacher. Once again CONGRATULATIONS! !!!" Curt Wendland of Byron and a member of the Bellingham '74 class says: "Congratulations to the Trojans and their fans on a great season and awesome state tourney run.
