15 Years Ago August 6, 1991 Sun There was a homecoming in Morris last week when two members of a Vietnamese family returned to visit the community that had meant so much to them. Three churches in Morris (Faith Lutheran, First Lutheran and Federated Church) worked together in 1975 to sponsor a Vietnamese family and brought 16 members of the Quan Ly family here from a refugee camp in Fort Chaffee, Ark.

There are some things you can count on happening about the same time each year. The invasion of strawberry root weevils into our homes in late summer is one of those events. Sure enough last week I had several samples on my desk waiting to be identified. August and some years early September are the prime time to see these pests in the home. Strawberry root weevils are common home invaders that we call nuisance insects as they cause no harm to humans, pets or household furnishings.
By Sue Dieter Sun Tribune Enrollment is up and the building is nearly ready for the new school year at the Cyrus Math, Science and Technology School, Superintendent Tom Knoll told the Cyrus School Board on Monday. When school ended in May, enrollment was at 76 for kindergarten through sixth grade. The projected enrollment for the start of the new school year is 86.
The Vikings played their first preseason game last Monday. There was some hype for this game even though it was a preseason game. This was the first Monday night game broadcast on ESPN, who now owns the rights to broadcast the Monday night games. The Vikings lost the game, 16-13. Thankfully, coach Childress did not go for the tie with a field goal attempt. Who wants to see overtime in preseason? The game started poorly for the Vikes, with Troy Williamson fumbling the opening kickoff. He was not even hit that hard. He was pulled on the next kickoff.
