Pro Football Official To Speak At Banquet The guest speaker at the Kossuth County Pork Producers Banquet at Garrigan Wednesday, Jan. 13, has been a soldier, a salesman, a businessman, a foundation administrator and most recently a professional football official in the National Football League. You may have noticed his name, Art Hoist, as it was credited on the television screen last Sunday when he worked the chilly Minnesota Vikings vs. San Francisco 49ers game in Bloomington. Assuming he will be thawed out by Jan. 13, he will probably be talking about that game and other pro football officiating experiences. - TICKETS FROM BOARD Dick Kuecker, a member of the Pork Producers' board of directors, said there will be Windsor pork loins "sitting on the table ...
