We still can not figure out why the NATO forces, and our United Nations don't make a more simple task of getting rid of the Yugoslav Monster Milosevic, other than by the bombings that on many occasions are killing innocent people. Why don't we just send in a powerful United Nations task force ... whether it be by land or by air ... and march on the headquarters of Milosevic, demand his surrender and then try him for the hundreds of thousands of ethnic mur- ders of which he has ordered! In other words, let's get at the root of the evil over there! As stubborn as the dictator is, the bombings could go on for months, for years! and he would still be alive and his murders would continue! We've learned that there's an Ortonville tie to the great ride of Paul Revere ... back in the Revolutionary days of our nation. Do you know who owned the horse that Paul rode on that momentous day in history? It was John Larkin, the great, great, grandfather of Ortonville's Mike Larkin of Ortonville's Dairy Queen. Indeed, quite an honor on which to lay claim! Yet another small worlder! While eating at Jade Fountain, Chinese restaurant, in Wayzata recently, we struck up a conversation with one of the friendliest men we've ever met ... Dr. Norm Berlingcr. He lives in Plymouth and practices out of North Memorial Hospital, He is a surgeon in the field of eye-nose-throat. When he learned we were from Ortonville, he remarked that about 13 years ago, he would fly here frequently with another doctor, to see patients at the OrtonviUe Hospital. He is a native of Detroit, Michigan, and once worked as a professor at the U of M Hospitals. He knows Dr. John Najarian quite well, having worked Jack & Shirley Weber of Winona, operators of Western Express Bantam Electric Railroad write: "Just another Railroad Nut who has to have one of your Hobo Soup T-shirts. Not only do you have an excellent soup, but you have one of the nicest labels around. I have used a couple of them on my railroad layout. I first found your soup in New Hampshire while riding on the Conway Scenic Railroad and since then have been able to buy it from the Cashwise Market in St. Cloud. They no longer carry it but, I had quite a reserve of labels and passed them out to some of my rail- road buddies, l'm sure if you watch the railroad pubIlca. tlons you will flnd your label popping up all over the place. Thanks for the good time and the great product." MONDAY, 4 - 6 P.M. At a July Fourth barbecue last year, Marvin T. Runyon, Postmaster General of the United States, talked about a new breast cancer stamp. "He was very proud of it," recalls hospice volunteer Susan Simons, a board member of Alive Hospice in Nashville. However, Simons sensed a chance to suggest something she had been thinking about for a long time. "I told Marvin there needed to be a hospice stamp," she says. Runyon listened to his neighbor and friend. This fall, against the backdrop of NHO's 19th Annual Symposium and Exposition, postal officials announced plans for the nation's first hospice stamp. TI IESDAY, 4 - 6 P.M. Snowbirds Mickey and Shirley (nee Oswood) Heffernan inform us they should be back home around the first of May. "On April 3rd, we returned from 2-1/2 months in the Rio Grands Valley of Texas. Rented a trader in Pharr, right next to McAllen. Weather was hot, dry and windy, temps into the 90's. The last two days there we had our first rain. Spent some time with the Henry Kottwitz children ... Vern Kottwitz of Wyoming, Kay (Kottwltz) Strandvold of Miibank, Darlene (Kottwitz) Ceaser of Ortouville. Also saw the Bob Hineses and Joyce (Bagaus) Steffen. Do hope, Jim, you took care of the hometmhu while we were gone!" Paint thinner solvents can contaminate drinking water The following article is the second in a series of 3 articles in preparation for the Big Stone County Household Hazardous Waste Collection to be held on Saturday, May 15th from lOam - 2pm at the Big Stone County Highway Garage in Ortonville: Dumping a little leftover paint thinner in the trash may seem harm- less. But throwing away paint thinner and other solvents can contaminate drinking water and pollute lakes and streams, according to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA). Paint thinner and other household solvents contain chemicals which can be toxic to humans, pets and live- stock. At least half of Minnesota's landfills are polluting ground water with several toxic chemicals. Household chemicals including paint thinners and solvents can contribute to this landfill contamination prob- lem. Toxic chemicals may reach water supplies when solvents are dumped on the ground or poured down drains or storm sewers. Many storm sewers lead directly to lakes and streams. Paint thinners, degreasers, spot removers, furniture refinishers and turpentine are all potentially polluting solvents. The best way to get rid of leftover solvents is to use them up. If you can't use up your solvents, give them to someone who can. Friends, neighbors and community organizations may need unwanted solvents. To avoid having leftover or unwanted solvents, make sure you need a solvent before you buy one. If you decide you need a chemical sol- vent, purchase no more than you can use. Unfortunately, few disposal options are available for household solvents other than using them up. Homeowners should store solvents in a safe area away from children and pets. Solvents can be brought to the HHW Collection on Saturday, May 15th from 10am - 2pm at the Big Stone County Highway Garage in Ortonville. For more information and a fact sheet on solvents or other household hazardous wastes, contact the Big Stone County Environmental Services at (320)839-3136.

A feeder that would be attractive to birds and humans alike. Easy to use, hard to destroy, and as frustrating as possible to four-legged marauders. The result was the world's first tubular feeder, affection- ately called the A-6.
