Ilodge-Podge by Phyllis Greely Hoefl The weekend brought us an early taste of smnmer. Most area people are glad, I suppose, that we will not have as warm weather as we had Saturday continuously. Someone said it was reported to be 86 degrees. I just looked (Sunday afternoon) to see if any snow remained after all that heat on Power Ridge. I could see there is still some remaining. Some of us were not out to enjoy Saturday's warmth tmtfl late in the afternoon. There were 32 people from the Kimball Church of Christ congregation Who attended the State Convention held at the ooRegisun tryn- t Hotel in Minneapolis from Friday aftern Saturday afternoon. Total attendance was between 600 and 700. Those numbers included the teens and children also. There were special sessions for both groups. Many of those present have attended previous COnventions of the church. There were others of us for whom it was a first time experience. One woman in an early get-acquainted session remarked that those who have once attended will want to attend in following years. That is no doubt true. There were numerous workshops from which one could choose at various times and three periods of time when all adults were assembled together for special services. The main speaker was Tim Coop who is minister of a church in Corona, California. That congregation has grown to about 1,000 people in naVerage attendance during the three services they ow have each Sunday. There are probably readers of .this column who will remember Tim as a fun-filled boy who attended Pine Haven camp. His father was minister in Crookston at that time. I would guess he must be somewhere between about 45 and 50 years old. He gave some inspiring talks that should be beneficiaTnot only to those who heard them, but to the churches they attend. Lois Rinkel just told me this morning that her aunt, Joyce Longwell Parker who had lived in Odessa, Texas for many years, passed away Friday mornin{L tbably we will have the obituary for next WeeK. kUite a number of you readers will remember her. S!a.e taught in the area many years ago. Herparents perhaps be remembered by more-Blake and Mac tongwell. Frank and Edith Longwell were Lois's .prents. All lived many years on farms north of Kimball. I never became well acquainted with Joyce and her sister, Helen Miner, who lived at Gibbon, although they both called on me on a few occasions when they Were in town. They were long-time subscribers to this t.t,per. Perhaps that is why Joyce felt well acquainted m me. A number of years ago she wrote inviting me ome visit Odessa, oirfering to buy me airline ets. She was lonesome. I shouldhave gone. It was a .missed opportunity. "Yesterday is gone". That _._s me to a selection I came across recently enUtled "One Day at a Time". The author is Unknown. 0m lqmernm There are two days in every week about which we ul_d not worry; two days which should be kept free fear and apprehension. One of these days is YESTERDAY, with its aistakes and cares, it faults and blunders, its aches conand" PainsAllWol Yesterday is passed forever beyond our the money in the world cannot bring back Yesterday. We cannot undo a single act we Erfsormed; we cannot erase a single word said. STERDAY ISGONE! ToThe other day. we should not worry about is MORROW vth its possible burdens, its large rymise and poor performance. Tomorrow is also ond our immediate control: Tomorrow's sun will ]se, either in spenaor or ,behind a mask of clouds .... but it will rise. Until it does, we have nOfNews--Thursday, Apri111, 1991 stake in tomorrow, for it is yet unborn. This leaves only one day .... TODAY! Any man can fight the battle of just one day. It is only when you and I have the burdens in those two awful eternities - YESTERDAY and TOMORROW - that we break down. It is not the experience of TODAY that drives men mad. It is the remorse or bitterness for something which happened yesterday and the dread of what tomorrow may bring. Let us therefore live but one day at a time - TODAY. Notice Pvbk NetHketbn of F,,HA's Flnd of 00s00mam [nvkome, nd Imet The Farmers Home Administration (FmHA) has received a request for the construction of a new well, raw water pipelines, an iron and manganese removal treatment plant, and water main extensions within the City of Kimball to improve potable water supplies to recommend standards. FmHA has assessed the potential environmental impacts of this propmed action and has determined that it will not significanUy affect the quality of the human environment. The proposed project will traverse a small wetland area approximately 120' in length. The mitigation measures recommended by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are as follows: 1. Work in winter ff possible. The prhnary benefit of this is tbe control of spread of purple loosestrffe. 2. Restore the area by turning the peat and organic material back in over the pipe. 3. Remove excess peat and fill material to an upland location in order to restore the original elevations. We have determined in accordance with FmHA Instruction 1940-G Exhibit C 3 a (2) that the locational impact is minor to the extent the wetland's natural values and functions will not be affected. Upon completion of the project the wetland area will be functionally, physically and naturaliy the same as before. No tap in restrictions are necessary because tbe area is remote, does not have access, the community has no significant growth nor does it foresee significant development.  line is in this location in order to provide for looping of City water mains. The distance traversed is small such that ff development were to occur it would occur on either side of the wetland area. Therefore, FmHA will not prepare an environmental impact statement for this proposed action. Any written comments regarding this determination should be provided within 15 (fifteen) days of this publication to William M. Slininger, District Director, 110 S. SECOND ST., SUITE 120, WAITE PARK, MN 56387. FmHA will make no  regarding proposed action during this fifteeny period. Requests to review the FmHA environmental assessment upon which this determination is based or to receive a copy of it should be directed to the above address.
