Area news digest I MORRIS-Burglars did some after-hours shopping at Morris' Pamida store early last Wednesday, getting away with thousands in cash, checks and merchandise. According to Morris Police Chief Jim Beauregard, the break-in was discovered when employees arrived to open the store Wednesday morning. Entry had been gained through the roof of the building and telephone lines o which transmit the alarm signal - had been cut. Taken were more than $1,000 in cash and checks, along with three 32" televisions, Sony Playstations, video games, compact discs and DVDs. Beauregard said that a two by three foot safe was removed from the building and several paintball guns and masks were also among the stolen items. "Pamida is doing a complete inventory at this time to be accurate on just what was taken," he said. HERMAN-Fire gutted an outbuilding on the Arnold Ennen farm just north of Herman last Thursday. A number of vehicles inside the building were destroyed and a nearby rug workshop operated by Janice Ennen suffered fire and water damage. She lost all her rugs. The Herman fire department was called to the scene about 1:30 p.m. and shortly thereafter requested mutual aid from the Elbow Lake, Wendell and Donnelly fire departments. Electricity was out in Herman at the time and firefighters feared they would not be able to replenish their water trucks from the city's system. WHFATON-A 1927 graduate of Wheaton High School didn't forget about her hometown. When Ruby (Elfstrom) Browne passed away on Dec. 2, 2001, her will stipulated that sizable donations be given to the Wheaton Community Library, the Senior Citizens Association, the Traverse County Historical Society and Bethlehem Covenant Church. The library received a check for $50,000 earlier this month accompanied by a letter from James V. McCabe of Seattle, Wash., the executor of her will. HANCOCK-Linda Lysen, a special education teacher at Hancock Public School, was selected to receive the Crystal Apple Award sponsored by KSAX-TV and Alexandria Technical College. She was nominated by Steve and Dori Gades and their sons Tyler and Andy Moe. CLASSIFIED ADS BRING QUICK RESULTS Court report (Week of Sept. 16, 2003) ORTONVII,LE POI,ICE DEPT.
