Area news digest HOFFMAN-A Barrett woman was honored last week for saving the life of a drowning child. Connie Amundson received a Citizens' Medal of Honor from the Rochester Fire Department for her quick action last month at a Rochester hotel. Amundson was a guest at the Hawthorne Inn March 1. She and a friend were at the hotel pool when eight-year-old Angie Muue was pulled unconscious from the pool. Amundson and her friend, both registered nurses, performed CPR on the girl. The victim regained consciousness by the time emergency workers arrived a.nd made a full recovery. WHEATON-Jerry's Electric repaired the antique clock attached to the corner of the Broadway Office Building (formerly First National Bank) in Wheaton on Thursday. "People noticed right away," said building owner Dawn Julson. "They said, 'There's even a light in it now.'" The clock was broken for months. The face looking to the west kept the time, but the face looking east didn't work. Electrician Jerome Deal used the internet to locate the remaining three motors available in the United States that would work in the clock. Julson bought two of the motors, just so she'd have the extra on hand in case one gave out. Deal said the company which made the motors went out of business a few years ago. They could find motors that were similar, but the accuracy just would not be as good. MADISON-According to Madison Fire Department Chief Kenny Fernholz, a call for assistance with a fire was received at 4: I I p.m. on Thursday, April 18. An older style barn on the Dan and Michelle Jibben farm located four miles west of Madison on Hwy. 40 was totally engulfed in flames by the time the fire department arrived. The building was a total loss along with several pieces of equipment Which were stored in the structure. The Marietta Fire Department and the Madison Ambulance were also at the scene. BFNSON-Syngenta, the company proposing to plant genetically engineered corn in Swift County, has withdrawn its request. "Syngenta decided today to withdraw the Swift County location from the release request," the Minnesota Department of Agriculture's Mary Hanks informed the county board April 8. She further states, in her email letter to the county, that the request was withdrawn in response to county requests for more information and protection of local crops from cross pollination with the biotech crop. Among the county board's requests prior to the planting of the biotech corn was that all farmers within two miles of the .land where the corn was going to be planted be notified. "We didn't at any point say we wanted to keep this out of our county," Swift County Board chairman John Thompson stated, "We just wanted more information for the people."

World War H Memories (Editor's note: This is one in a series of articles, many from The Independent, found in a cherished scrapbook compiled by Ortonville's Helga (Mrs. Sam) Ban'.) Ortonville Boys Meet in Manila Edmund Inderieden and Bob Hasslen Meet on Street There From Manila, Edmund Inderieden, writes The Independent under date of July 25, as follows: "'Just a few lines to let you know that I get your paper regularly and that I really enjoy reading it away out here. I happened to go to Manila yes- terday and guess who I saw? Bob Hasslen! Boy was I surprised to see him. He's the first fellow I have met from home in the 23 months I have been overseas. I didn't recognize him at first but it didn't take long. "We had a long talk about the good city of Ortonville and how good it will be to get back there He is sta- tioned pretty close to where I am, so we will be seeing a lot of each other. We had a lot of fun the first day we met. Both were so surprised we hard- ly knew what to say. We had a real time riding through the City of Manila in one of those horse-drawn carts. We went through the ruins of the old Spanish Walled City which is a part of Manila. It is almost levelled from shelling and bombs. From the looks of things and from what we have read and heard, Manila was once a very beautiful city. 'q still can hardly believe that I finally met someone from home in this big army of ours. The world isn't so big after all, is it? "Say hello to the gang back home for the both of u. We hope we can get back soon." Ill[ CLa.SSSED]i Extension report John Cunningham County Extension Educator 839-2518 or 1-800-279-2518 MORE MOLD, INSECTS LIKELY IN STORED GRAIN DUE TO WARM WINTER WEATHER Bill Wilcke, Extension Ag Engineer with the University of Minnesota Extension Service, St. Paul, prepared this weeks material. The relatively warm weather of the past winter was a plus for homeowners paying heating bills. However, it was bad news for stored grain. Grain molds grow faster at warm temperatures. So do stored grain insects. Last winter's mild weather will no doubt lead to an increase in stgre# _groin mold and insect problems this spring and summer. Wilcke encourages farmers and elevator managers to check stored grain as soon as 15ossible for signs of mold and insects. During the grain inspection, measure grain temperature and moisture at several locations in the bin. If you find warm or wet grain, musty or sour odors or evidence of mold or insect problems, take action soon -- well before summer weather arrives." Depending on the kind and severity of grain storage problems you find, Wilcke suggests one or more of the following actions: If mold and insects are causing the grain to heat, run aeration fans during the coolest weather available to lower the grain temperature. Consider running fans just at night when air is cooler. Try to keep the temperature of grain you plan to hold into summer at less than 50 degrees E If grain moisture content is too high, consider drying to a safe moisture level. The moisture level for safe summer storage should not be higher than 14 percent for corn, 13 percent for small grains and 12 percent for soybeans. If grain storage problems are confined to an isolated area in the bin, try to remove just the problem grain without disturbing the good quality grain surrounding the problem area. If the bin contains a lot of broken grain and foreign material (fines), and/or the grain is infested with insects, consider running the grain through a grain Cleattef:'This "ea'n remove the finei atxd.pelkaps a few=0f the insects. If it's feasible, use the grain as soon as possible. For any grain that developed mold and insect problems during the winter, the problems are only going to get worse during warm weather. If you are experiencing grain storage problems this year, try to determine how they could have been prevented. Then make plans to upgrade your drying and storage facilities or change management strategies to reduce future problems.

It isn't totally accurate or fair, but nonetheless it helps make sense out of some occurrences. After getting haircuts one day, Aaron said, "I think he said seven something." Sensing we were baf- fled (the price seemed much too low), the barber put up three fin- gers, pointed at me, then four and pointed at Aaron. Our haircuts cost 7 kuai (pronounced "quy") or 84 cents That evening we heard a pianist at the grand opening of the second location of.a Swedish restaurant. The pianist had been ill all day, but the owner (the wife of a brain sur- geon) said he doesn't ever miss a chance to perform. When he arrived, we were introduced to the personable artist. Talented on the keyboard and vocally, he played with Eh'is Presley and is the voice of Donald Duck in Sweden. He illustrated that much Chinese music uses the same fives notes as American spirituals. He performed a spiritual he wrote, sang "A Love Song for *" in Swedish and played "Amazing Grace" on a traditional Chinese flute. Afterwards he graciously demonstrated his Donald Duck voice to Alyssa. Only in China, said our friend Ray, could we get close to a celebrity without fighting a crowd. Only in China, we thought, would it be so incongru- ous to hear a clear but non-threat- ening presentation of the Good News by a musician traveling around the province as a visiting artist. That evening we saw Bill Withers, director of the rehabilita- tion program for Project Grace in Cross-Ca Advent South Family in A n Jot by Lyle D. 0 ti g a ; :ha it , A Only in China: A  aui h a Jc Yunnan  An, received my  aen,. ful prosthesis I , AI International ( mrc another L!
