Twenty signs were posted on county highways. Stearns County decided to post the signs in light of the fact the county is the sixth highest in the state when it comes to the number of alcohol-related fatal and serious crashes. 20 years ago Jeff Schlangen of Watkins took home the Championship Trophy at Saturday night's Meeker County Fair Demo Derby. The Demolition Derby at the Meeker County Fair brought out over 700 spectators. Lyle Burgstaler of Kimball took home the first-place trophy in the Stock Division with Chris Schultz of Watkins taking second place. 30 years ago Lori Sworski, a senior at Kimball Area High School and Kelly Leither, a junior at Kimball, Minnesota, were two of 2,800 teens to attend the Future Homemakers of American Annual National Leadership Meeting in Orlando, Florida. They have come back with many new ideas and hope to help their chapter grow from their experiences. 40 years ago Governor Wendell R. Anderson announced that the City of Kimball has been awarded a grant of $39,900 from the Upper Great Lakes Regional Commission to be used to construct sewer and water lines to an industrial park. The governor said that the Upper Great Lakes Regional Commission will supplement a grant of $140,100 from the Farmers Home Administration and $157,760 will come from the city for a total project investment of $337,760.
