PA"E 2 : Corrections: Last week, we wrote that Stearns County Commissioner invited the public to a tour of Landwehr Farm on July 7; this event is actually a private one, and is already full. Landwehr farm loves to give tours, so if you or your group would like to see their robotic dairy operation in- person, please call them at (320) 764-9971 to set something up; or call AgVenture Feed & Seed about this or other ag tours at (320) 764-9910. In the June 16 issue of the Tri-County News and PLUS, we stated that the Starlite Drive-in Theater was open again for the season under new ownership, and that many of the former employees were kept on (which is what we had been told was the intention). We have since heard from a former employee that many of the former employees had been let go and were suing the new owner. While we're clearing things up, I also wrote in the June 16 issue about the proposed corporate hog farm northeast of Kimball. Just to set the record straight, I do indeed know the difference between a grain bin and a silo. What is on the proposed site are huge grain bins (not silos).

St. Mary Help of Christians parish festival A quilt auction is the highlight of many parish festivals. This was the case Sunday afternoon, June 26, at St. Mary Help of Christians' parish festival in St. Augusta. It was a beautiful day for all the games and activities of the day, as crowds of people made their way around the church grounds taking in all there was to offer. Staffphoto by Jean Doran Matua.
