SPRING VALLEY--Most of Kyle Glenn's working career has been at two area supermarkets under common ownership. Glenn has been employed by Brian and Tammy Ormson at both of their stores, in Glenwood City and Spring Valley. "I've worked for them off and on for nine years," he said Thursday. Last month, Glenn joined management in the Ormsons' corporation as co-owner of Spring Valley Supervalu. He's since been trained in bookkeeping and office procedures, overseeing ordering, decision-making on advertising and more, Mrs. Ormson said.
EL PASO -- No doubt Margaret Golden and Anna Janisch are qualified to be El Paso Days parade grand marshals during the community's sesquicentennial year. Janisch has spent her married life as a resident of the East Central Pierce County town and Golden has lived there her entire life. Both are veterans of local farms. Neither could tell Tuesday exactly why they were chosen for the parade honor, though modesty may have contributed to that.
Back from Farm Technology Days in Dodge County last month, members of the organizing committee for next summer's event in Pierce County liked what they saw. "The Dodge County show was one of the strongest in the last 10 years," Greg Andrews of Pierce's committee said Friday, citing strong attendance, organization and planning, and vendor and exhibitor satisfaction. Consequently, the show near Waterloo was "one of the best catapults" the Pierce group could hope for, Andrews said.
Generations of east end residents have been served by the East Ellsworth Community Post Office, the management of which was passed down from one generation to another earlier this year. Actually, the passage skipped a generation during that most recent transfer. But later this month, the operation will come to a complete stop. Present Postmaster Angela Becker confirmed last week the office will close on Friday, Aug. 21.
It wasn't until almost a year after he left the military that Devin Feuerhelm joined the American Legion. Once Feuerhelm became a member, his involvement escalated rather quickly.
An outstanding local student and athlete was recognized by the Ellsworth Chamber of Commerce Thursday. Chamber President Tami Langer introduced Hayden Hauschildt, the son of Jim and Diane Hauschildt of Ellsworth.
MAIDEN ROCK--Maiden Rock around the time when it got its name from the story of an Indian maiden's adventures is the locale for a new book by author Janet Elaine Smith. "Maiden Rock Mistress," published by Star Publish and sold by Amazon.com, takes readers back to the lives of early settlers there and in Lake City, Minn.
For the third school year, breakfast and lunch fees in local schools will stay the same. The Ellsworth School Board Monday approved fees of $2 for elementary lunch, $2.10 for secondary lunch (grades five-to-12) and $1.50 for breakfast. Reminding the board the food service fund is the only one in the district's budget which can have a carryover, Superintendent Barry Cain said the fees will be monitored during the coming term and may have to be increased eventually.
