What a tremendous ALC series which ended Sunday with our gallant Twins losing 4 games to I to the Anaheim Angels. We thank the team and all connected for one of the greatest Twins seasons ever...even though it ,was sad they didn't do bet- ter in the final series. Their bats were as cold as they've been all season, but that may have been due, to a large degree, to the Angel pitching. We know it's easy to criticize, but in the final ALCS game Sunday, when the Twins came from behind to go ahead 5-3 in the top of the seventh and had the "right" pitcher come in for the bottom of the "terrible" sev- enth, the Twins might have at least extended the series for another game in Mpls. We still wonder why pitcher Kyle Lohse, who had been so great during the regular season, was never used once in the final series except when "all over"?! was a great season, and if the club doesn't lose a ton of players looking for more money, next year should be even better yet! Hey...the Vikings won a game...barely edging out hapless Detroit Sunday, and maybe thus allowing Coach Mike Tice to keep his job for a while longer! Who knows, wouldn't it be nice to see them start a winning streak now!? Yet another small worlder, Recently, we entered the Wayzata Tire and Auto business in Wayzata, to have some work done on daughter Collette's car. The receptionist announced my name, and a pretty young lady waiting in the lobby remarked..."why I know you, Jim Kaercher." Turned out to be one of our subscribers, Jean (nee Karels)Mersch, formerly of Rosen and now of Plymouth. She's the sec- ond youngest of 10 children born to the late Val and Loin Karels, who for many.y.carsoperated the Rosen Store. Lola now lives in Plymouth also. Jean is a 1980 graduate of Bellingham High School. For the past 13 years, she has worked in the Accounting-Financd dept. for the Mpls. Star-Tribune newspaper. She and husband, Rick (from Iowa) have two girls, ages 3 l/2and 1 1/2, which keep her busy and result in her work- ing only about three days a week. "Pull over, stop and wait for funeral procession!" Such is the heading of a piece found by Ortonville's Pam Jacobsen in the Watertown (SD) Public Opinion: Q: Most people would like to show proper respect when meeting a funeral procession or coming upon a hearse entering a cemetery close to the roads. Are there proper rules of etiquette that should be followed on state, county and township roads? Oj. A: One of the local funeral directors in Watertown gave us some advice on the proper etiquette when coming across a funeral procession. When you meet a funeral proces- sion, drivers should always pull over to the edge of the road and then stop and wait until the procession has com- pletely passed before pro- ceeding. In town, many times, there is usually a police escort and residents should know to pull over when they see the escort. This etiquette should be fol- lowed on all roads, with the exception of interstate high- ways.
