Town Talk II
by Ron Carr

They call it a dusting. That’s all we had for snow Monday morning. Didn’t add up to any moisture but caused some slick roads around the county. Several accidents Monday morning of the “sliding into the ditch” variety. A couple of accidents Monday afternoon west of town near Cargill had nothing to do with the snow, which was gone by then. No moisture in the forecast for the next several days.

We send thanks to Mitch Terry and his automotive class from last year for building the many lighted stars that are shining on Main St. If you haven’t been down Main St. after dark take a ride and enjoy. The stars are very nice and present a consistent image along the street. Uncle John White would be proud. Thanks Mitch and students.
