Because of the heavy snow cover and slippery conditions of the streets, Dick has been using his snowmobile for transportation to and from work. He had apparently come from behind the coal bins south of the lumber yard and was headed east when he was struck by a car going south and driven by Ron Lahr of Storm Lake, a representative of Grinnel Mutual Insurance Co. Because .the ambulance was out of town on another call, he was loaded into Bill Madsen's station wagon and taken to Mercy Hospital in Mason City where the compound fracture was set. He hopes to return home by .the end of the week to recuperate. RAMBLIN'. Kim Krominga Loses Arm In Meat Grinder Kim Krominga, 17, son of Mr. and Mrs. Russell Krominga, owners of the Titonka Locker, lost his right arm almost to the elbow Thursday morning when his hand and arm got pulled into a large meat grinder. Kim, a junior at Titonka High School, had stayed holme from school for ,the day to assist in the plant while his father was ill. His mother and Mrs. Helen Krominga were working in the same room at the time of the accident, and the switch on the grinder had to be thrown Have you heard the good news? Shirley and I became the grandparents of our second grandson in just a little over three months, last Wednesday! The little fellow arrived about five weeks before we had planned, but everything is great. Phil and Ruth could have picked any day except Wednesday for the big event, but. we did manage to get a short notice in the paper regardless of the day. Naturally we are both anxious to see the newest addition to our family, and if everything goes as planned, we will make a fast trip to meet him about the middle of next month. His maternal grandparents, Chuck and Jean Beed, have already left for Paradise and will be the first to meet the new baby. What better place could you possibly find to start a new life than i n Paradise? The name of this town will always fascinate me! Congratulations to the new parents, who have waited seven years for their first child, and Fire Destroys Garage On Louis Bartlett Farm The Ti tonka Volunteer Fire Department received a call about 10:50 a.m., Saturday to the Louis Bartlett farm, south west of Titonka, where a garage and workshop were destroyed by fire. Mr. Bartlett's grandson, Steve BarWett, son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Bartlett, who live just south of the Louis Bartletts, was working on his snowmobile with a welder at the time of the mishap. According .to Steve, sparks shot over his head and apparently ignited some gas that had bee n spilled, and before he could do anything the building was ablaze. Lost in the fire were a snowmobile, freezer,, tools and other items, in addition to the building. The loss was covered by insurance.

Another snowfall Tuesday forced the closing of school early again, but with the ditches full, it won't take tod much wind to really plug things up. The couple of days of light thawing that we have had didn't do too much good, but the temperature has been rather mild and really appreciated. We should be on the home stretch as far as winter goes, and most residents are looking forward to better weather. From reports I have heard, the big snowmobile run sponsored by the Red Dog last Saturday attracted over 120 enthusiasts. They went from Titonka to Woden, on to Wesley, to Sexton, the River Road Golf Club, Burt and back to Tyke, atoout 55 miles! It was a poker ride, with the participants picking up a card at each stop. 5 DAYS Without A Fire tact 300 people for $100 each is a much bigger job than I realized. With the deadline of March 1 rapidly approaching, I seriously doubt if I am going to be able ,to make enough calls in the Titonka area without knowing who is Interested in donating to this tremendous project. If you are interested, or have some questions you would like answered, please give me a call and I-will be more .than happy to talk to you. Also, if there is anyone 'Interested in helping with the fund drive, let me know. Your help will be appreciated. I know there are many in the area who want to donate to the project, but if I don't know who you are I may not call On you, and we don't want this project to be delayed because of the lack of initial finances. Let's get started this year! A quota has been assigned to the Titonka area, based on population and proximity to the recreation area, and I hope the residents of the area will help J us achieve it. j That's it for another week.

And Junior High Teams Are Kept Busy The Titonka Junior Varsity and Junior High basketball teams have been busy lately. On January 17, the Junior High boys and girls hosted the Woden-Crystal Lake Teams. The determined effort of the girls wtas no,t to be denied as they picked up a 29-20 victory with Gayle Moore leading the scoring with guard coxint, Follman, did an outstanding job in posting the victory. The young Indians did not do as well as they fell 44-22. todd Loeschen led the local scorers witih 12 points. The following Friday, the teams traveled to Burt. Trailing by only 4 points at the half, the girls were defeated 44-27 as Deb Folkerts led the scoring with 13 points. The boys had trouble finding .the bucket and managed only 15 points- while the Bears dropped 36 for the victory. The low scoring fails to show the improved effort of the young Indians.

Afternoon bingo winners were Pete, Maude, Sylvia, Roy, Myra, Audra, Bertha S. and Annie I. Following bingo we teams traveled to'Rake to play on January 31. The 7th grade ;oam put forth a fine effort for Ihe-ir first ball game of the season, but were defeated 25-13 as Al Anderson and Mark Gaul led the offense with 4 points apiece. The 8th grade team played an outstanding game but suffered a 29-28 double- overtime loss. Mark Ricklefs led the scorers with 15 points In the losing effort. The Junior High teams are looking forward lo this Friday Basketball fans were treated to a pair of good games in the Titonka gym Friday night as the Tyke teams took on Woden- Crystal Lake in a pair of State Line Conference battels. In the opener, the Squaws used control basketball to hold the high-scoring Tigers to just 52 points while the local girls dropped in 43 i n their losing effort. Looking back to their recent trouncing by the Tigers, Titonka used a very controled offense, and with a few less errors could have come up with a big victory as they had the visitors rattled with their tactics. W.-C.L. managed a 10-point advantage at the end of the opening period, 17-7, and the Squaws battled with them for the rest of the game, losing by only 9 poiriits. With a good 17 point effort in bhe second period, the Squaws cut the margi n to 9 points at the half, 33-24. The game slowed to even a slower pace in the third period as neither team wenjt to the free throw line and the Squaws fell behind 43-32. Seven of seven from the charity line in the final stanza kept the local girls in the game, but they were unable to pick up enough ground as they fell 52-43. FT FG TP V. Follman . B.
