Glimses From The Past

From the Glenwood Herald May 20, 1915

A bunch of ball tossers known as the High School Left Overs went to Lowry Friday and came home with with the scalp of the Lowry high school team buckled to their belt. From results which were 26 to 3, it seems as though the Left Overs ought to start in on something a little tougher.

The Park Board asks the Herald to state that driving or permitting stock on the park will not be tolerated under any circumstances. A large part of the park has recently been seeded to grass and if people will keep off there will soon be a fine lawn. The Park Board also wishes to have it perfectly understood that booze parties must stay away from the park. Or they will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. In a nut shell the Park Board wants the people of the city to co-operate with it in making the park a beauty spot and a joy to everybody.

Do not forget the Grand Opening Ball at the Lakeside Pavilion to-morrow evening. Good music, good floor management and a genuine good time is assured.

Dr. Alexander is moving into his new quarters in the rear of the First National Bank. The room has been remodeled and now has a private office and waiting room.

Happiness reigned supreme yesterday noon among the school children of the six lower grades when announcement was made that these grades would be closed for the rest of the year. This action was taken by the Board of Education in order to help check the spread of scarlet fever of which there are about half a dozen cases in the city. In order that this action may become effective parents should keep their children at home as much as possible and prevent them from gathering in bunches.

A transient on train No. 112 was robbed of a purse containing sixty dollars while on the train about half a mile out of Brooten yesterday. Three men are supposed to have committed the robbery. They jumped off from the train immediately after they had committed the robbery and are said to have returned to Brooten where they bought tickets for Glenwood. It is reported that three men who answer the very meager description which had been obtained at the time this was written came to Glenwood on train No. 111 and left the train at the east end of the Soo yards. Marshall Bogie was informed immediately and he began work on the case.

The three men who are suspected of having robbed a transient on train No. 112 out of Brooten yesterday afternoon were arrested at Morris last evening and held there for the local authorities upon request by special officer P. J. Burns. The three men held at Morris are said to have relieved a Morris resident of ten dollars. It is also thought that the same men visited some of the Glenwood stores yesterday afternoon about four o’clock. No article of any considerable value was however missing.

Corn planting is very late this year on account of of last week’s cold and rain.

Notes From The Capital

From Paul Anderson - State House Representive 12B
Monday, April 27, 2015

paul anderson 150Action has switched from daily committee meeting to long floor sessions in the Minnesota House as we debate and pass the major omnibus spending bills that will provide the funding to operate state budgets for the next two years beginning July 1.  In all, there are ten spending bills that need approval, and we worked through half of them in the past week.  The others, including House Republicans’ nearly $2 billion tax cut bill, will be up for debate this week.

One of the spending bills passed last week was the transportation bill, which will now go to a conference committee with the Senate.  Included in House plan is a $25 million appropriation for cities under 5,000 population that will assist them with their local transportation needs.  In total, it raises $7 billion over the next ten years without any additional gas taxes.  Currently, both the Senate and Gov. Dayton have a different plan in that they are proposing a sales tax increase on fuel, which would go up or down annually, based on the wholesale price of gas. Sixteen cents per gallon would be the minimum increase under their plan, with additional hikes as the price of fuel goes up.

Friendly Garden Club Looking For Donations

Friendly Garden Club looking for donations for flowers at Starbuck beach

Friendly Garden ClubOver the years the Starbuck Beautification Committee and the Friendly Garden Club have beautified and enlivened Starbuck with hanging flower baskets, flower planters and flower beds in the downtown area, the park and the beach.
Last year with the help of the city, the VFW Men’s Auxiliary and members of the Friendly Garden Club created the flower beds by the beach house (which was renovated and the snack shack open) were expanded and a tiered flower/rock garden was built and planted at the south end of the beach by the boat landing. They received many compliments and saw a much increased use of the beach during the summer. The necessary funds were raised from local businesses and organizations to cover the increased flower planting, watering and fertilizing.

Notes From The Capital

http://gk-renda.ru/reshenie-uravneniy-metodom-kramera.html решение уравнений методом крамера Property taxes and who pays them

paul anderson 150The subject of property taxes and who pays them is a topic that always seems to create discussion.  We have heard the explanation of how local property taxes are made up of a three-legged stool, with the three legs of revenue being agricultural land, residential homes, and commercial/industrial property.  In recent years, because of the rapid escalation in farmland values, there has been a shift to more of the total property tax bill falling onto that category.

With the farm economy humming along with high commodity prices and profit margins comfortably in the “black,” at least for crop farming, there wasn’t much sympathy as taxes on ag land increased by large amounts.  That scenario has completely changed in the past year as commodity prices have plummeted to less than one-half their peak values, and profit margins have disappeared.  And even as land prices stabilize and begin to drop somewhat in value, it will take several years for that to show up in lower property taxes.  As a result, farmers are looking at their tax statements and realizing that this is now a significant input cost, one that is adding to their negative cash flows for the upcoming year.
