Water ruined books in CURRENT library


The Mascot made an error by saying old books were ruined in the Old Store library after the last rain.

They WERE ruined in the basement of the CURRENT library on Hwy. 68.

The books had to be thrown out.

There was NO water in the Old Store basement.

The Mascot apologizes for the error! — Publisher Byron Higgin.

Heavy rain fell across much of the Minneota area — in fact, nine inches or so on Sept. 23.
That left large areas of corn and soybean fields submerged.
Flood waters covered perhaps 100,000 acres for several hours as rain water moved from fields into creeks and rivers across south-central and southwest Minnesota.
Problems exist on Hwy. 68 construction

Work on Highway 68 in Minneota came to a screeching halt this week.
"The compaction estimates were not what they should be," said Minneota Mayor Tony Esping at a special city council meeting on Wednesday.
As a result, Northdale Construction and the city came to an impasse and no work was done Monday through Wednesday during extremely nice weather.
"There are unusual circumstances — all the rain," said the mayor. "And the soil is just not compacting," he said.
