"That was the push," Lesmeister said.

Nearly 100 people crowded the club house Monday night for a special meeting. Stockholders turned down the proposal by a vote of 65 to 17. Thanks to the efforts of the Knights of Columbus, the Park Board, and area businesses, Pomme de Terre Park has a new shelter, complete with electricity and a fire pit.
A malfunctioning grill was the cause of a fire at the Todd Hottovy home in Morris last week, according to Morris Fire Chief Doug Storck. The fire started when Hottovy was attempting to light a grill at the rear of the house in the early evening June 20.

Because of the intensity of the flames, Hottovy was unable to extinguish the fire or move the grill, and the flames reached the home's sidewall.

My husband and I are both from small, rural communities in Minnesota.
