By Judy Riley UMM News Service Those of us who now check the "40 and over" bracket on insurance forms may recall seeing the classic "Road to..." films, starring Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour. This summer 12 University of Minnesota, Morris students took one of those roads "...to Morocco." They will not be quite the same for their experience. "I walked into Morocco knowing little about what I was getting myself into, knowing little about the country," said Kate Borman, of Crystal.
Morris City Council member Sheldon Giese is seeking reelection, of sorts. Giese, who is wrapping up his fourth year on the council, on Tuesday filed to run for mayor. Tuesday was the first day for potential City Council and mayoral candidates to file. The filing deadline is Sept. 12. Mayor Carol Wilcox's term expires this year, and she has said she will not seek another term. "With Carol leaving, there needs to be somebody in that position who has gotten their feet wet, so to speak," Giese said.
Submitted by Bernice Erdahl and Suzanne Smith, Co-Chairs The Stevens County Extension Homemakers were definitely a part of the mix in 2006 at the Stevens County Fair this year. Our total number of exhibits was 1207, up from previous years. The judges again commented on the fine quality of our exhibits and the variety of talents our exhibitors possess. Each of the 13 clubs had 100 percent participation this year, meaning all members of our clubs had at least one exhibit. Several exhibits were chosen by our judges to earn a Best of Show Award.
Cyrus On August 27 services were held at the beautiful white country church in Framnas Township. Pastor Smith was able to be back with us and welcome all to come together for worship. There were many former members, many from the Cyrus church, and some from the other Scandia church which was torn down. Once again we heard the beautiful voice of Joel Hanse as he sang songs we all remembered and we were asked to join in on some. After the services all went to join in a potluck dinner under the shade of the trees and well kept lawn. It was a perfect day for a picnic.

Volunteers recovering and rearranging grave markers at Calvary Cemetery in Morris said they are perplexed by several dozen very old stones found buried in the grass, some as many as five inches deep. One of the volunteers, Ted Storck, said most of the markers are about two inches by eight inches by 24 inches, but added that he found some just more than six inches wide and 26 inches long.
