Pa00e 16 -- -00aC&apos;ommuni" Thursday, October 14, 2010 Tri-County News * Kimball, MN CAN KILL. The Kimball Cubs lost to the Eden Valley-Watkins Eagles Friday night, Oct. 8. The Eagles handily scored 42 points in the first half. The Cubs scored 6 points, and only at the very end of the game. The halftime presen- tation of the 2010 KAHS Hall of Fame inductees was a highlight of the evening, as was the balmy temperature on an October night. (A year ago at this time, we were enjoying our first snow!) Above, the Cubs tried hard to take down Eagle runners. Below, senior wide receiver Ty Filzen. Staff photos by Marguerite Laabs.

Taxpayers who own property classified as agricultural have until Nov. 15, to pay the second half with- out penalty. The second half mobile home taxes are also due by Nov. 15. To make paying taxes more con- venient, Stearns County has the option for citizens to pay over the internet. Stearns County's auto- mated electronic payment sys- tem allows citizens to pay 2010 real estate property taxes online using E-Checks or credit cards. Visit the County's website at <www.>, and click on the "Property Taxes" button in the left blue margin. Residents can also do ACH monthly or quarterly payment plans. This spreads the payments out over either a quarterly or 10-month period. These payments are automatically deducted from a checking or savings account. This saves time and there's no check to write.
