Aug. 6 storm causes patchy damage By Jean Doran Matua, editor The radar showed what looked like small patches of intense color Tuesday evening, Aug. 6. They slowly made their way to our part of the state. Rain, hail, high winds, sun- shine and rainbows, more rain, more hail, some combination of the above hit us all Hail damage to homes, vehicles and crops was the result. At right, this previously thriv- ing cornfield northeast of Kimball was shredded by hail. There were several complaints about a low- flying airplane in the days follow- ing the storm; it was a crop-duster spraying corn fields to prevent a fungus that develops after hail damage. New car seat recycling program The Household Hazardous Waste Facility will begin accepting child car seats as part of its recy- cling program. Beginning Aug. 19, Stearns, Benton and Sherburne County residents can drop off their used car seats at the House- hold Hazardous Waste Facility at 3601 5th Street South in Waite Park. The program is a partnership between Stearns County, McLeod County and Tri-County Solid Waste. McLeod County will be doing the recycling of the seats, disassem- bling them and recycling individual components. Currently, there is no permanent recycling program in place for car seats in this area. Therefore, resi- dents were often left with no oPtion but to throw them in the garbage or they would be passed on to friends and family. Car seats don't have a long life span. They are unsafe and should not be used if they have been Sweet corn is coming By Deb Botzek-Linn U arM Extension It is sweet corn season in Minne- sota- enjoy fresh corn on the cob, a summer tradition! Sweet corn is an excellent vegetable to store frozen. It is easy to freeze and produces a tasty, quality product when prop- erly frozen. When harvesting, do so early in the morning before the heat of the day. Plan to freeze the corn as soon as possible after harvest. Once husked, the ears are blanched in boiling water for four minutes followed by a com- plete cooling in ice water for about eight minutes. Drain and cut the ker- nels from the cob. An electric knife is a handy tool for cutting off the kemels. Package the cam in freezer containers, leaving one-half inch headspace. Seal and freeze at 0F or below to maintain quality frozen corn for up to one year. Blanching, followed by chilling in ice water, are critical processes for producing quality frozen corn. The enzymes in corn need to be inacti- vated by blanching in boiling water for the recommended time prior to freezing to prevent loss of color, nutrients, flavor, and texture. The ice cold chilling process prevents the involved in a vehicle crash or if they are more than six years old. The Household Hazardous Waste Facility is located three blocks south of the Steams County Service Center, at 3601 5th Street South in Waite Park. Hours for drop- ping off items are Monday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., Tuesday through Friday 9 a.m. - 4 p.m., and the third Saturday of each month from 8 a.m. - 12 noon. For more information, call (320) 255-6140, or (800) 450-6140. corn from becoming mushy because of overcooking the starch.

Salzl Welding celebrates 50 years By Mike Nistler When Leander Salzl opened up his welding and fabricating shop in Watkins 50 years ago, he had no idea he'd still be in business today. But the good Lord willing, Salzl may have many years ahead of him. At age 77, he doesn't see retirement in his future. "I've done this all my life," said Salzl, who purchased Ben Krippner's Blacksmith Shop when he was just 2Z Business in those early years was "really good," Salzl said, and he worked alone for the first five years until he hired his first two employees. Today, he's down to one employee/his son, David. Salzl Welding does all types of welding and fabricating jobs for other small businesses, including many local farmers. But the absence of small farms has hurt Salzl in one respect - his ability to find good employees. "It's really hard to get good people," he said. "When I first started, you could take a kid offthe farm and train them. They just are not out there anymore. Kids go to school so long that they don't have the practical experience that you need in this job. You need a lot of common sense. Salzl isn't sure if his son will some day take over the business, so "until the Lord says I gotta quit," he'll keep on working. Stay or the FUN!
