Quilts of Valor drop off spot
The mission of the QOV
Foundation (www.qovf.org)
is to cover ALL wounded
service members whether
physical or psychological
with wartime quilts called
Quilts of Valor (QOV).
News reports on the war
never mention the number
of wounded. Current official
Department of Defense
numbers indicate that over
61,000 Americans have been
wounded since the beginning of Operation Enduring
Freedom in Afghanistan in
2001 and March 2003 for
Operation Iraqi Freedom in
Iraq. As of the end of early
August, 11,458 QOVs have
been distributed.
The Minnesota QOV organization has requested
that Tiger Textiles become
a drop off spot for quilt
tops and completed QOVs.
Northern Lights Quilting
Studio of Swatara has volunteered to long arm quilt
many of the tops for QOV.
Quilts of Valor currently
has a request from the Fargo
Veterans Hospital for 521
quilts and they expect ad-
ditional requests from the
other area VA hospitals over
the next few months. Tiger
Textiles agreed to help in
this effort.
Here are some ways for
you to get involved in the
QOV process:
• QOV’s should be a minimum size of 50” x 60” and
quilted, either by hand or
machine. Any quality cotton fabric may be used in a
design of your choice. It is
helpful if your quilt includes
a pillowcase and a label with
the name of the piecer, the
quilter and a line and date
for the recipient’s name. It is
also nice to include a hand
written or typed message
to the soldier. They really
appreciate the thanks and
encouragement. For more
detailed info visit the website at www.qovf.org.
• Donate funds or fabric
to the local QOV non-profit
foundation. Or, purchase a
raffle ticket on the two raffle
quilts.
When your donation is
ready, drop it off at Tiger
Textiles, 211 NW 1st Ave.,
Grand Rapids, complete a
quilt submission form and
they will make sure your
donation gets to our QOV
contact. For every completed QOV, the piecer and
quilter will each receive a
chance at winning one of
two raffle quilts (Rose of
Sharon & Winding Ways).
More information and photos of the two quilts visit
www.qovf.org or contact

During WWII, the whole
country was behind the

Planting! We truly have our best success with fall planting because newly planted trees, shrubs and perennials have several months of ideal growing conditions with cool,
moist weather and soil temperatures still warm enough for root growth. Getting plants into the ground in the fall allows the soil to be settled over the winter better than
even the earliest spring planting, ensuring your plants will be more likely to endure the stress of heat and possible droughty conditions next summer. While some stock is

The old school, Ball Bluff
By Philip Neese
Ivan Anderson, a student
in 1941, tells us a little
about the location, “That
school was located right by
Ball Bluff which is about
three miles south of Jacobson. The bluff was about 60
ft. high and shaped like a
dome. There were no trees
on the bluff. It was bald and
thus the name, Ball Bluff.
We skied on the south and
east side of the bluff and
we would go all the way
to Carl Norberg’s pasture.
Unfortunately, most of this
bluff was removed when
highway 65 was upgraded.
The school building has
been gone for some time.”
Ruth Stenrud Anderson
got the job of teaching at
Ball Bluff right after she
graduated from Duluth
Teachers College in 1941.
Ruth had been a city girl
and living and teaching in
the country was a new ex-
perience for her. She loved
to take the kids for nature
walks and especially to
climb the bluff.
“We had many picnics up
on that bluff. I am sorry that
it is gone now. I learned a
lot about trees and flowers
from my students. I had a
lot to learn but so did they. I
guess you might say that we
were in the same boat.”
The school board made
it very clear that there was
very little money available
for books and supplies.
“These books were good
enough for us and they
should serve you well!”
Ruth explained, “They
had a bench for recitation.
Each class was to get up
from their seats and go to
the front of the room and
sit on this bench for oral
recitation. The kids would
take advantage and it would
take several minutes to get
the kids to settle down.

There was a disturbance every time one of these eight
classes was called. One day,
I called a class and one boy
refused to come up front.
I had to do something, so
I grabbed the boy’s hair
behind his ear and pulled.
The boy’s neck stretched
out a little but he did not
move. I pulled again and
his neck became longer!
Soon I was laughing and he
was laughing. Soon every
one was laughing. I knew
there had to be a change. I
arranged the student’s seats
by grade. Then when it
was time for recitation, the
children would stay seated
and I would move to that
part of the room. Things
were better after that. We
put the bench in the back
of the room for storage as
the school board would
not permit anything to be
thrown out.
“Some years later I got a
letter from the reluctant student in which he said, ‘I bet
you never thought I would
graduate from high school.
I fooled you. Thanks for
being my teacher.’
“Wally Newstrom was
superintendent of schools
for Aitkin County and he
sent out a notice that the
schools were to help out in
every way possible with the
war effort. We had a scrap
iron drive. Agner Carlson
provided his truck and we
filled it to the top. I think
we had the best record in
the area.”
Ivan Anderson recalls,
“One of the projects we had
was a Victory Garden. That
was really hard work. My
dad had a breaking plow
and he let us boys use our
team of horses. One would
drive the team and the other
would try to keep that plow
in the ground. I was 12 and
that was some of the hardest work ever.”
Ivan Continues. “The first
time I saw Ruth was the
first day of school in 1941.
We peaked in the window
and saw this small girl. We
thought she was a student.
She turned out to be one
of the nicest teachers I ever
had.”
Ruth explains, “We were
doing all right in the normal
school studies but I wanted
to teach some practical lessons. We formed a club in
which we chose projects.
For instance we chose to
make some cupboards. We
We are members of the
Greater Lakes Association
of Realtors Multiple Listing
Service & the Minneapolis
Multiple Listing Service.
Ball Bluff School
then drew out plans and
began our construction.
Next we thought curtains
would go nice and this
was a project for the girls.
We built shelves and with
books, which had been
stored in boxes, we made
a library. We made a wood
box so that the wood would
not have to lie on the floor
and we made a table. Some
of the children who worked
on these projects were; Lois,
Jackie and Jean Hiatt, Anna
and Jean Lofgren, Johnny
Anderson, Ivan Anderson,
Elmer Eason and Gilbert
Lofgren.
“One thing I lacked was
music, but Lois Hiatt and
Ailie Relander would sit
on the porch railing during
recess and sing and Yodel
like birds! Everyone else
just stood and listened,
awestruck, hoping to learn
how they did it! “We brought items from
home and had an auction
sale. The parents were
invited. We raised $24.64,
which we gave to the Red
Cross. We made presents
and wreaths for the Christmas program. My first year
of teaching was fun and
enjoyable. Oh! And did I
mention I also found a husband right across the road
from the school!”
1942, students with a load of
scrap iron collected for the
war effort.

Too much TV, too little attention
BY KIM TROBEE
How much TV do your little

new study, if it nears an average of 2 hours a day,
he or she may be at risk
for attention problems
later in life.
The study, which
began in 1972 at the
University of Otago in
New Zealand, shows a
40 percent increase in
attention deficit disorder among adolescents
who began watching television by age five. The effect
was observed in both boys
and girls and many were not
diagnosed with ADD prior
to the study. Jay Senter with
Common Sense Media is impressed by the research.
“Anytime that you do a
longitudinal study and you continue the habit.

provides a great deal of cred- with many habits, they’re

unless you are very actively working to change
those habits, they can

age.”
She says it’s another
warning to parents to
limit their child’s viewing time.
“The obvious takeaway
from this is that parents

Pioneer Game Warden 3
BY PHILIP NEESE
Carlos Avery Wildlife Management Area was designed
for wildlife protection and
propagation. This 23,000-acre
sanctuary located in Wyoming
Township was started in 1933,
with a goal of providing protection for wildlife and at the
same time improving hunting
conditions for the increasing
number of Minnesota hunters.
It should be noted that the
property acquired was taxforfeited land.
A game farm and nursery
were included. The game farm
provided a facility for producing pheasants, quail, partridge,
ducks and geese. The nursery
produced a variety of ground
forage and seedlings that were
planted on potential state
hunting land. The farm also
grew crops of corn and black
amber cane for the protection
of birds during the winter.
Much of Carlos Avery is bog
or marshland. Prior to being
established as a refuge, carpet
companies drained the area
with ditches to the point that
horses wearing bog shoes
could harvest the wiregrass,
which would be used to make
a fine carpet. These bog shoes
were 10 by 12 inch wooden
platforms onto which the
horse’s hooves fit. It would
seem that handling a team of
horses with these bog shoes
would be a very difficult task.
The refuge was beset by
many problems including
lack of predator control. Good
management was needed and
it was at this time that Marion
Cooper was hired as Refuge
Supervisor at a salary of $150
per month (rent or lodging to
be deducted). It is interesting
that, in 1932, Marion received
a letter from the State of Minnesota, informing him that he
and all other Conservation
Department employees would
be required to take a two week
vacation without pay.
Two years after Marion’s
appointment, predators were
under control, wild life had
increased to the point that
public hunting grounds were
opened for the first time. Stray
cats, bobcats, weasels, mink,
foxes, wolves, hawks, owls
and eagles all loved the small
chicks. Marion was very good
at taking care of this problem
and he was a good instructor.
During the depression, young
men earned money by trapping gophers. The clerk of
Wyoming Township would lay
the feet of these little animals
on his table and count them
out. Pocket gophers were
worth 5 cents; two legs of each
gopher were to be presented.
Stripped gophers were worth
3 cents and four legs were to
be presented.
He never asked more out of
his men than he would do,
nor would he accept less. The
refuge and farm soon became
a model for the state.
The zoo in Stillwater donated
a tame deer to the refuge.
This deer soon became a pet,
named Gus. Somehow, Gus
became hooked on tobacco.
If someone wanted Gus to
do tricks they would give him
a pinch of snuff or a wad of
tobacco. He chased kids into
Little Coon Lake and he would
take clothes off the cloth line
with his fine horns. Marion was
always having to come to the
rescue and he was getting a
little tired of it. One warm day

rifle.

Ford pickup.

when a car window had been
left partially open, Gus got his
head inside the car looking
for snuff and couldn’t get his
head back out. Needless to say
the car was a disaster and Gus
ended up in the meat locker!
Marion participated in the
project of planting thousands
of pine seedlings. When these
pines were of the right size,
they were planted along Highway 169 from Zimmerman to
north of Milaca. You may see
these mature Norway Pines
now, especially between Princeton and Zimmerman.
Beware of trespassing during hunting season
The Minnesota Department
of Natural Resources reminds
hunters to always ask landowners for permission to hunt
on their property.
It is also important for hunters
to remember that they should
always respect the rights and

property of their host.
Any entry onto the private
property of another without
permission is considered trespass. Landowners may be able
to pursue court action against
trespassers whether the property is posted or not. People
who are caught trespassing
may be issued a citation and
assessed a fine under civil
penalties, and repeat violators can lose their license or
registration.
If convicted of violating trespass laws, they may lose their
hunting privileges for up to
two years, lose hunting equipment, and be subject to fines
and possibly a jail sentence.
All DNR conservation officers and licensed peace offers
enforce trespass laws and may
issue a citation to a person
who trespasses in violation of
the law or who removes a sign
without authorization.
A brochure about hunting
private land is available by
contacting the DNR Information Center at [email protected]

Following the Marine’s
motto where no one gets
left behind, Aitkin Maryhill
Manor’s Community Room
filled with onlookers on Sun.,
Sept. 30, to witness a presentation of WWII medallions
to more than a dozen residents. Additional medallions
originally made for the June
9th dedication of the state’s
$1.3 million dollar WWII memorial were specially ordered
for area veterans/widowed
spouses not able to attend
last June.
“These additional medallions were made possible
financially through VFW Post
1727, American Legion Post
86, and the Kenneth Kellar
Foundation,” said Carroll
Janzen, Co-chair of the Aitkin
Area Persian Gulf Support
Group. “On behalf of the
State of Minnesota, through
the American Legion and the
Veterans of Foreign Wars
we present WWII medallions
on behalf of their dedicated
service as a WWII veteran,
or as a widow representing
that WWII veteran.”
Also participating at Maryhill were Joy Janzen, Co-chair
of the Aitkin Area Persian
Support Group; Aitkin American Legion Commander,
Judd Anderson; Commander, Larry Robberstad of the
Aitkin VFW; American Legion
Axiliary President, Agnes
Weimer; and Aitkin County

Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs
If every American home
replaced just one light bulb
with an ENERGY STAR qualified bulb, we would save
enough energy to light more
than 3 million homes for a
year, more than $600 million
in annual energy costs, and
prevent greenhouse gases
equivalent to the emissions
of more than 800,000 cars.
ENERGY STAR qualified
CFLs:
• ENERGY STAR qualified
bulbs use about 75 percent
less energy than standard
incandescent bulbs and last
up to 10 times longer.
• Save about $30 or more
in electricity costs over each
bulb’s lifetime.
• Produce about 75 percent
less heat, so they’re safer to
operate and can cut energy
costs associated with home
cooling.
• Are available in different
sizes and shapes to fit in almost any fixture, for indoors
and outdoors.

ENERGY STAR qualified
CFLs provide the greatest
savings in fixtures that are
on for a substantial amount
of time each day. At a minimum, ENERGY STAR recommends installing qualified
CFLs in fixtures that are used
at least 15 minutes at a time
or several hours per day. The
best fixtures to use qualified
CFLs in are usually found in
the following areas of your
home:
• family and living rooms
• kitchen
• dining room
• bedrooms
• outdoors
How to Choose the Right
Light:
Matching the right CFL
to the right kind of fixture
helps ensure that it will
perform properly and last a
long time.
For example:
• CFLs perform best in
open fixtures that allow
airflow, such as table and
floor lamps, wall sconces,
pendants, and outdoor fix-
tures.
• For recessed fixtures, it is
better to use a reflector CFL
than a spiral CFL since the
design of the reflector evenly
distributes the light down to
your task area.
• If a light fixture is connected to a dimmer or threeway switch, you’ll need to
use a special ENERGY STAR
qualified CFL designed to
work in these applications.
Make sure to look for CFLs
that specify use with dimmers or three-way fixtures.
• Choose a qualified CFL
that offers a shade of white
light that works best for you.
For example, while most
CFLs provide warm or soft
white light for your home,
you could choose a cooler
color for task lighting.
• To choose the ENERGY
STAR qualified CFL with
the right amount of light,
find a qualified CFL that is
labeled as equivalent to the
incandescent bulb you are
replacing. Light bulb manufacturers include this infor-
mation right on the product
packaging to make it easy
for consumers to choose the
equivalent bulb. Common
terms include “Soft White 60”
or “60 Watt Replacement.”
You should also check
the lumen rating to find the
right CFL. The higher the
lumen rating, the greater
the light output. Consult the
chart above to determine
what CFL wattage is best to
replace your incandescent
light bulb.

The Big Picture
If one room in every US household were brightened by Energy
Star® qualified lighting:
· The change would save Americans over $3 billion annually in
electricity costs
· The annual energy savings would be equivalent to removing
more than 8 million cars from the road for one year.
What is E85?
More than five million
American cars are already
capable of running on E85
ethanol, a gasoline alternative made up of 85 percent
ethanol and 15 percent
regular gasoline.
Ethanol is made from
a variety of crops grown
here in America. Right now,
most ethanol in America is
produced from corn. In the
future, increasingly, a wider
array of crops will produce
ethanol.
There are a number of
reasons why E85 ethanol is
better than gasoline:
• It is cheaper. With gas
prices at their current levels,
ethanol typically sells at 60
or 70 cents less per gallon
of fuel.
• Lots of cars can use it.
Already 5 million American
cars on the road can run on
E85. It is relatively easy and
inexpensive for car-makers
to tweak existing models to
run on E85. (Source: CBS
News, 60 Minutes, May 7,
2006.)
• E85 is clean. E85 is
much cleaner than gasoline,
and emits a smaller amount
of smog precursors and
greenhouse gases for every
gallon of fuel consumed.
• E85 is renewable. Getting more homegrown ethanol is simply a matter of
Valero, and ConocoPhillips
to double the number of
E85 pumps in the next year
and provide E85 at half of
all gas stations within a
decade.
Learn more about E85 or

vehicles from the National
Ethanol Vehicle Coalition

planting new crops. The
United States has the capacity to produce an enormous
amount of ethanol.
• E85 is American. Instead of supporting foreign
regimes that can hold our
foreign policy hostage, E85
promises to help liberate
us from foreign energy
dependence. At the same
time, E85 can help create
jobs in the US for farmers
and refiners.
To be clear: E85 is just part
of a broader solution. But,
E85 is an important part -and it is one of the easiest
steps to take right away.

Burke to serve on National Association of Counties steering committee
CONNIE PETTERSEN
H&HS Board highlights
9-25-07
Tom Burke, Director of
Health and Human Services
(H&HS) has been nominated
to serve on the NACo (National Association of Counties) steering committee “Human Services and Education.”
Burke sought approval from
the H&HS Board since NACo
meetings take place out of
state, including in Washington DC.
Burke explained that participation in these programs
is very important. “The State
of Minnesota is not in the
discussion if you don’t have a
representative there,” he said.
“You just get left out.”
“I’d rather see a rural county spokesman at the table
than a Hennepin County or
Anoka representative,” said
Commissioner Dale Lueck,
pointing out that large metros
have enough people at these
meetings, whereas rural parts
of the country are left out.
“If you are not at the table,
you know what will happen
to your dinner!”, said Lueck. Consensus was that the
nomination for membership
on a NACo steering committee would not only benefit
Aitkin County, but all rural
Minnesota.
“If you give up an opportunity to say something,
then you better not complain in the future,” added
Tom Burke, “and you don’t
know when you will make
an impact.”
The Board commended
Burke on his NACo committee nomination and authorized reimbursement for
travel costs. Board chair,
Brian Napstad asked Burke
to keep track of costs and
benefits to Aitkin County and
to see if benefits out weigh
expenses. Burke will inform
NACo meeting organizers
that a larger dent is made in
a smaller county’s budget to
furnish a rural representative
and he will try to seek travel
reimbursement from federal
sources.
Freedom to Breathe Act
Cindi Korpela, Public Health
Supervisor handed out a
packet of literature to the
H&HS Board regarding the
upcoming October 1st start
date of the public smoking
ban as determined in the
Freedom to Breathe Act.
Last spring, Minnesota
Legislature and Governor
Pawlenty passed into law
the Freedom to Breathe Act,
expanding the Minnesota
Clean Indoor Air Act. The act
extends second hand smoke
protections to customers and
employees in indoor workplaces including restaurants,
bars, and private clubs.
Board chair Brian Napstad
said he did not think there
was enough time for all
businesses involved to get
required variances/building
permits if they build outside
smoking areas.
“The intent was to protect
the health of people, especially employees,” Korpela
said, “It would be interesting
to see if adding on a room
where people could go outside and smoke would actually bring in more business or
not.” She said statistics show
that typically three months
after towns, organizations,
etc., went smoke free, there
was a three-month lull in
business before it picked up
again, which happened in
19 states.
“Most of those states don’t
get to 40 below!” quipped
Napstad.
Minnesota is the 26th state
to adopt the Freedom to
Breathe Act. Korpela said
H&HS will be sending out
education packets to businesses in Aitkin County.
Other business
• Sue Tange, Social Services Supervisor updated the
H&HS Board about the Children and Community Services Act. In order to receive
funding appropriated by the
Act, counties are mandated
to submit a biennial service
agreement to the Department
of Human Services.
• The Board was informed
of a letter sent by Mike
Rohde and Adam DeShaw
of McDonalds’ restaurant in
Aitkin to Virginia, MN office
of AEOA and NE MN Office
of Job Training. The letter
complimented Aitkin Work-
force Center staff for “terrific
work” regarding their job applications so managers could
do final interviews and orient
new workers. The letter said
Aitkin area is fortunate to
have such capable and dedicated employees.
Committee Reports
• H&HS Advisory Committee received updates from
Cindi Korpela on Children’s
Health Services planning
process and Freedom to
Breathe Act and discussed
County Based Purchasing
and possible training for
County Board and advisory
committee members.
• Children’s Mental Health
– discussed employment
for ages 14 to 21 who face
mental challenges and cannot attend colleges and what
their needs are.
• McGregor Housing Group
- survey results is back that
went to 1300 people. About
540 responses came in and
data indicates a need for
some sort of transitional
housing — not nursing home
or a single-family dwellings.
• Central Minnesota Community Corrections – Commissioner Napstad said Director Mike Kafka was queried
at an Aitkin County Board
meeting recently whether or
not he thought a re-evaluation of his job, title, responsibility, wages was in order
after closing the juvenile
center, but Kafka had said it
was not. “That has not been
the undercurrent of the Joint
Powers Board over the last
couple of meetings, nor the
Executive Committee,” said
Napstad, stating that Crow
Wing County offered to utilize a consultant presently
in house working for them
and have that consultant
evaluate the new situation.
Napstad said the decision
was unanimous to engage
that consultant.
Regular County Board
Jessica Seibert, representing Aitkin County Homeless
Coalition updated the Commissioners on the 2nd annual Operation Community
Connect to be held Thurs.,
Oct. 11 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
at First Lutheran Church in
Aitkin. The goal of the event
is to connect low-income individuals and/or in homeless
situations with multi service
agencies conveniently in one
location to try to get help for
their situation.
“It’s more than an information fair where people get
pamphlets,” Seibert said.
“There are actual applications available to apply for
and receive services.” Coats
for Kids will also be going
on and it is a food shelf day
at the church, so eligible persons could receive groceries,
grocery cards, or certificates.
Transportation can be provided. Seibert said they are
looking for volunteers to act
as tour guides. Seibert can
be reached at Aitkin County
Homeless Coalition, 218-9272151 for more information.
Other Business:
• The Commissioners approved the final plat of Letigre Resort 2nd addition.
• County Administrator Patrick Wussow and the Board
reviewed the status of their
2007 priority items. Wussow will work with Human
Resources manager Cindi
Hills doing research regarding random drug testing of
employees.
• The Board invited more
department heads to attend
County Board meetings to
keep communication open.

Crosby City Council approves zero percent increase on levy
BY KATHY C. BRYAN
The Crosby City Council
met Sept. 24 in the Crosby
City Hall. Mayor Dale Sova
was present as were Council Members, Deb Shankle,
David “Butch” Ferrari, Ed
Vukelich, City Attorney,
James Gamello, and City
Clerk, Cindy Nelson. Council Member Neprud was
absent.
Mayor Sova announced
no one from the public was
present on the preliminary
levy hearing held recently
and the Council voted on
a zero percent increase on
the levy.
Denny Palmer appeared
before the Council with an
enlarged map of the Cuyuna
Lakes Bike Trail and offered
an update on the route of
trail. Palmer requested input
on the new changes from
the Council. Mayor Sova
requested the City Engineer
receive a copy of the enlarged map and consult with
City Attorney as the project
progresses. Palmer stated the
trail will be open next year
and that Federal and State
funds have been allocated
for it. The Council authorized
preliminary work on Alternative B for the bike trail. Mayor
Sova asked Mike Rude, City
Engineer, to oversee trail
progress ensuring there are
no problems with City water
and sewer demarcations.
Peggy from the Crosby
Library appeared before the
Council to discuss a new hire
position, stating a letter was
sent to the Mayor’s Office
on Aug. 17 concerning this
issue. The letter was never
included in the Council packets or placed on their agenda.
The librarian explained this
isn’t a new position and her
department is under budget
for staff needs. The Council
approved the Library staff
position.There will be an
open house/barbeque at the
Library on Oct. 14.
John Mehrkens from Presbyterian Homes appeared
before the Council with an
update on the Crosby Senior Services project. Mayor
Sova asked for discussion or
questions from the Council
on this project. The Council
agreed that the City Clerk
and the Mayor can sign off
to approve the final plat for
Cuyuna Range Development for the Senior Housing
Project.
Under New Business, Mayor
Sova opened the meeting for
an open forum on the Business Subsidy Plan with the
City of Crosby. Hearing no
discussion, the open forum
was closed. The Council approved a motion to adopt
the resolution on the policies
and criteria for the Business
Subsidy Plan.
Mayor Sova called for a
motion on the Development
Agreement for the TIF#2 – 2
Iron Range Plaza. The motion passed to execute the
Development Agreement for
the project.
The Council approved the
resignation from the Public
Works Supervisor effective
Sept. 24, 2007. The Supervisor will be paid through Sept.
28. Mayor Sova asked Police
Chief Coughlin to follow
up with obtaining keys and
other belongings of the City
from the Public Works Supervisor. There was discussion
concerning the restructuring
of the Public Works Department. A job description for
the Public Works Supervisor
will be posted at the City
garage and the library. Until
someone is hired for this
position, Steve Perpich, the
Working Foreman, will cover
the supervisory duties in the
interim. Mayor Sova request-
ed that the job description
for the Working Foreman be
presented to him for review.
He will work with Council
Member Vukelich on the restructuring of this department
and together they will make
a list of what needs to be
done for the Working Foreman. Working Foreman will
report to the Council until a
Supervisor is hired.
The Crosby Fire Chief reported there was one run
since the last meeting and
gave a brief update on the
Cuyuna Range Fire Service
Mutual Aid Agreement. The
Council agreed to adopt the
agreement.
Mayor Sova asked the City
Attorney if he’d received
information concerning the
Hallett Center Zamboni
Agreement with Heartland
Hockey Camp. Gamello stated he hasn’t heard from them
yet but will follow up.
City Clerk Nelson, Deb
Shankle and the Mayor will
attend the Regional League
of Minnesota Cities meeting
on Oct. 3.
Council Member Vukelich
inquired about contractor
digging permits in the City
of Crosby. Vukelich wants
to know why the City is
charging $25.00 for the permits when the City of Deerwood and the City of Ironton
do not. More specifically,
Vukelich asked why contractors are being charged for
permits, if they are licensed
and bonded. The City Clerk
retrieved the file on digging
permits for clarification. After
a brief discussion, Council
Member Vukelich asked for
further clarification on this issue and the matter was tabled
until more research can be
done and presented at the
next Council meeting.
Police Chief Kim Coughlin
appeared before the Council
and presented recent photos
taken of an unkempt property. Mayor Sova commented
the Ordinance is pretty clear
about upkeep of properties
in Crosby. Coughlin reminded the Council that if a property owner needs a reminder,
the Police Department sends
out a letter with a copy of
the Ordinance to clean up
the property. Recently, ten
residents have received tickets for failure to abide by the
ordinance after a warning
was sent. Mayor Sova asked
Coughlin to remain gently
diligent about the property
in question and encourage
the resident to continue with
the clean-up.
Coughlin also reminded
the Council winter parking
notices will be placed on
vehicles next month concerning parking on City streets
during the winter months.
Captain Rick Koop of the
Crosby Police Department
appeared before the Council
to discuss damage done to
the roof antennae on City
Hall. A strong wind broke
the cable and the pipe is bent
and needs to be replaced.
Estimates will be obtained to
repair the damage. Koop also
reminded the Council one
squad car needs to be purchased before the end of the
year. Mayor Sova suggested
the vehicle be purchased
outright and not leased,
thereby saving taxpayer dollars. The Council approved
the purchase a police vehicle
for 2007-2008.
There was a discussion
about Project Play. Chief
Coughlin suggested a certificate or plaque be awarded to
those who were instrumental
in initiating this program.
The Council agreed. Council

CHILD CARE ASSISTANCE
The Aitkin County Health & Human Services has child care funding for children age 12 and under (or 14 if disabled), on a sliding-fee scale basis. People
looking for work, going to school or training programs, or working could get
this funding.
Proof of income, schooling, job search, or that you are working is needed to
decide if you can get this funding. To be able to get this funding, your income
must be below State guidelines.
A part of the child care costs may be claimed as a credit while doing your
income taxes. People can find out more about this from their IRS office.
To find our more about this funding and/or to apply, contact Bobbi Rosecrans at the Aitkin County Health & Human Services or call 218-927-7200.
Parents looking for child care, call Arrowhead Child Care Resource and Referral, toll free 1-800-450-0450.
