10 Years Ago August 1, 1996 Tribune Anyone driving down Fifth Street toward Atlantic Avenue will notice a new business has moved into the two-story yellow house behind the library. "Keepers", an antique and gift shop owned by Mary Jo and Tom Hoffman of Hoffman Realty, opened to the public May 8. The store's opening is a culmination of many years of working with antiques, said the Hoffmans. Stevens County has an Arts Council at last.
A successful season for the Morris Eagles baseball team came to a disappointing end Saturday when Dumont took the second win of a three-game series, 6-4. Dumont took a 6-0 lead after just two innings. The Saints put three infield hits together in the bottom of the second. A hit batter, a walk, and a strikeout then followed to set the stage for the at bat that changed the game. Eric Deal unloaded a bases clearing two-out double that gave the Saints all the points they would need.

Tennis players in Morris are enjoying a new court at Green River Park. The tennis court itself has been around for years, but the surface is brand new. An interlocking grid system made of a polyurethane composite was installed this summer. The old asphalt surface was in bad shape and desperately needed repair. The city could have torn everything out and resurfaced the court, but decided to put in the grid system. McBroom Construction of New London installed the court at a cost of $44,000. Jim Dittbenner, city maintenance director, said it should pay for itself in the long run.
"Grandma, please help me tie my shoe," little Suzie asked. How could Grandma refuse such an earnest face looking up at her? "The laces get all knotted when I do it." How precious a little child is! "It's a baby girl!" the nurse announces as she sets the tiny infant in her mother's arms. All that labor pain fades as Mommy gazes at the red, crinkly face of her newborn. How precious a little child is! "Daddy, can you play catch?" What happiness fills this son just to spend some time with Dad. How precious a little child is! Who would argue with that?
