Quick service, low prices and high quality. Stop by and take a look! il i 70 Main Street South Kimball (320) 398-5000 Luvern Hinz recognized by MPCA Five years of volunteer service Luvern Hinz was recently rec- ognized by the Minnesota Pollu- tion Control Agency (MPCA) for completing 5 years of volunteer service to the agency's Citizen Stream Monitoring Program. As part of the program, Hinz vis- its Willow Creek in Stearns County each week during the summer and conducts a simple test to measure the clarity of the stream. Water clar- ity is an important indicator that helps scientists understand the hea!th of a water body. In much the same way that blood pressure can alert a doctor to changes in a patient's health, a robust record of water clarity data can help scientists track the health of a stream or lake," said Laurie Sovell, a volunteer coordinator at the MPCA. Hinz is among 1,700 volunteers statewide who partici- pate in the Citizen Lake and Citi- zen Stream Monitoring Programs. The MPCA needs more volun- teers like Hinz to monitor water quality on Minnesota's abun- dant lakes and streams during the summer months. Volunteers com- mit to visiting their lake or stream weekly from spring through fall. The monitoring itself takes very little time and is easy to do. The MPCA provides volunteers with the needed equipment and train- ing on how to use it. Lake men- itors must have access to a boat or canoe, but stream monitor- ing is conducted from a bridge or along the stream's banks. The data is most useful if a volunteer can commit to participating in the program over several consec- utive years. This continuous data record helps scientists determine whether water quality is changing over time. To learn more about becoming a volunteer, call Laurie Sovell (for the streams program) or Johanna Schussler (for the lakes program) at the MPCA at (651) 296-6300 or toll-free at (800) 657-3864.

Veterans Service Office moving Move will close office for few days Stearns County s Veterans Ser- vice Office in St. Cloud will be mov- ing to the Stearns County Service -Center this week. The office was closed at noon Monday, June 27, to accommodate the move and was opened at 8 a.m. on Thursday, June 30, in their new location at the Ser- vice Center, which is located near Mill's Fleet Farm. The Veterans Service Office will keep the same phone number, (320) 656-6176. Their new mailing address will be:, Veterans Service Office, Stearns County Service Cen- ter, 3301 County Road 138, Waite Park, MN 56387. The new location will provide better accessibility and more con- venient parking for clients. The Vet- erans Service Office currently rents space at 116 - lOth Avenue North in downtown St. Cloud, a block away from the County campus. Space at this current location is no lon- ger adequate. The building is not completely handicap accessible. Parking is very limited. The smaller office lacks privacy for clients. Plus, veterans prefer not to drive down- town. Moving to the County's Ser- vice Center would alleviate these issues. Additionally, the County would save money in rent and maintenance costs. The Veterans Service Office in Melrose will not be affected by the move. Compiled by the Kimball Area HiStorical Society  Past fourth-of-July celebrations Plans of mammoth celebration off Fourth of July Taken from The St Cloud Daily .Metes, June 19,1922. For the first time in 12 years, Kimball will stage a Fourth of July celebration. Plans have been com- pleted for one of the largest cel- ebrations in central Minnesota by the Kimball Community Club, which allotted $350 for celebration purposes. A large industrial and agricul- tural parade, in which every Kim- ball merchant and a large number of farmers will enter floats, will be the feature of the celebration. Valu- able prizes have been offered to the persons entering the best floats in the parade. Magnus Johnson, state sena- tor and candidate for governor, will be the speaker of the day. Sen- ator Johnson will deliver a patriotic address. The feature of the afternoon pro- gram will be a ball game between Kimball and the Milaca Indians. The Indians have a strong nine, and it is believed that a close game will result. A horse shoe pitch- ing contest between Litchfield and Maple Lake will be a second after- noon attraction. There will be dancing in the afternoon and eve- ning wlth Hands Orchestra of St. Cloud furnishing the music. A crowd of several thousand people is expected in Kimball on July 4. Huge fireworks display in Kimball Saturday nite From the Tri-CountyNews, June 29,1951. For the fourth consecutive year the Kimball businessmen are spon- soring a display of fireworks at the ball park. Saturday night, June 30, is the date of the Pre-Fourth display. The free movie in the village hall will start at 7:45 instead of at 8:15 p.m. as in previous weeks. The picture will be "Detour to Danger" which will be shown in color. The fireworks will begin as soon as those attending the movie are able to get to a good location to view the display. It is reported that the fireworks will be an even bigger and prettier display than those in years past. Kimball has always been host to a very large crowd in the night of its Pre-Fourth celebration, and it is anticipated that just as many or more will take advantage of the opportunity to spend a pleasant evening in Kimball again. There will be dancing on two floors following the fireworks. The American Legion is sponsoring a dance at the pavilion, and there will also be dancing at the Kimball Play- land Ballroom. Spend Saturday evening, June 30, [1951] in Kimball! These two (above) accounts of Kimball Fourth of July celebrations are reprinted from the Tri-County News Thursday, July 26 2001. Kimball's See Line Railroad history 1886 was brought to life by historian Alton Chermak June 28 as he shared his life-long expertise that was also his career. Another spe- cial event attended by many leaves memories none of us urill soon for- get. Let us know how you liked it.
