And other places I've hung out over the years By Arlo Janssen Jim, a college freshman, was con- sistently late for his 9 o'clock English class. "It's just too early in the morn- ing," he said. I warned him that one more 'tardy' would count as an absence, a serious matter at the community college. The next morning, would you believe, he arrived early - before I had dismissed my 8 o'clock class. Through the window in the door, Jim saw the room full of students and the class in progress. Thinking he was late, he quickly burst into the room. I couldn't resist kidding with him. "Late again, Jim!" I said as seriously as I could. He looked around at the unfamiliar class,--then said to me with a puzzled look, "I hate to tell you this, Professor Janssen, but I think we're both in the wrong room."

When visiting with Carl and Lisa Funderburk, the most frequently asked ques- tioned they are asked is "Why the move from Memphis, TN? Carl states that crime has increased tremen- dously in Memphis and with the opportunity to start up a ministry at the Milbank, SD Baptist Church, their prayers were answered. Carl and his wife Lisa and daughter Emily, moved to Ortonville in May. He began his min- istry at the Milbank Baptist Church in September. Carl and his wife Lisa are also employed full-time at Hardware Hank in Ortonville. Their daughter Emily is a Sales Associate with Hanson Furniture and Carpet in Milbank. "Things are so peaceful here," said Carl. "We have met some wonderful people and we truly enjoy the surroundings in Ortonville. We wanted to move to a smaller community and this is where we were led. We couldn't be hap- pier." Both Carl and Lisa were raised in Mississippi, where they met, and have been married for 28 years. They have two other daughters; Faith, who resides in Memphis and Charity who lives in Illinois. They also have one granddaughter. Carl and his family are still settling in, but found time to plant a garden this summer so they could raise some of the foods from back in Memphis. They are also fond of their neighbors in Ortonville who have helped them out tremen- dously. "We are blessed with some fine neighbors who have made us feel right at home," said Carl. "Right now we spend a lot of time at home and on the job, but hope to start taking in some of the things this area has to offer." We welcome Carl, Lisa and Emily Funderburk to the Big Stone Lake Area and hope they have a long stay. Series sponsored by Minnwest Bank q J M!
