Letter to the Editor: November 27, 2013

 

To the Editor:
A "thank you" to the Wright County Commissioners is in order for their approving the drafting of a resolution (which, in turn, needs another Board vote to be enacted) that allows Corinna Township to assume full authority for shoreland planning and zoning in the township.
Corinna Township has clearly met all state requirements, has the backing of township citizens, and has handled their current planning and zoning responsibilities with integrity, fairness, and professionalism.
I am confident that they will carry out the additional shoreland planning and zoning responsibilities in a likewise manner.

Minnesotan in training

 

Thanksgiving is almost here and you know what that means: most people are already getting ready for Christmas.
Somehow, this time of year always sneaks up on me. Preparing to marry my beautiful wife Sarah seemed to accelerate that process.
It’s hard to believe it’s already been more than a month since we said, “I do.” 
In that month, I started growing my Movember moustache. Truth be told, it’s driving us both crazy, so we’re looking forward to Dec. 1, when I’ll be a baby face again.
Speaking of December, the Messenger has a new contest. We’re asking readers to send in photos like the one above. I look forward to seeing the submissions.
And I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!

Brute's Bleat: November 27, 2013

After doing a little research on whether to hunt South or North Dakota, our group of three (Mike Muller, Daryl Hennen and myself) figured North Dakota might be the better option this year. So we headed out that way a week ago Saturday for the oil patch country and arrived in White Earth the following morning after driving through the night. We stayed with Mike’s son, Kenneth, who is an electrical contractor, and Jody Paumen an electrician. It was cozy, five people and three dogs in his mobile home, but great accommodations for the five days we were out there.  As electricians, both of our hosts have done enough rural work to become acquainted with local farmers and where there might be pheasants which was a big asset for us.  Our hunts usually include a contest and this year wasn’t any different. $1.00 on the first bird each day and a $1.00 each on the longest tails and biggest spur for the trip.
