Total floor space when the new addition is complete, which will be by early fall, will give the store a total of about 12,000 square feet, or about 4,000 more than at present. Expansion of every department and modernization of the present facilities and equipment is also included in the plan. - TO INCLUDE BAKERY Wm. J. Hood, who opened his first store in Algona in 1938, said that the new addition will also house a bakery. The addition will extend west from the present store, and will be also adding from 20 to 25 more parking spaces between the addition and the sidewalk on Minnesota Street. There will be an entry into the expanded store from both east and west parking lots. After completion, the new addition will about double the present grocery shelving and with all new shelving, and there will be considerable expansion in the frozen foods department, and in non-food items as well. The meat department will remain in its present location in the store, but with improvements. - PLAN INTERIOR CHANGES The present west wall of the building will be almost entirely removed, so that the store will be open via throughout. Complete redecorating is planned, there will be a new floor throughout old and new sections, and a slanting-type canopy will extend from the roof front along State Street. A complete sprinkling system is to be installed for the entire store. Cowan Corporation is the general contractor. Hood's Super Valu has been in its present location since 1955. John Hood joined his father in operation of the business in 1962. - TO EXPAND EMPLOYMENT- The store is entirely locally- owned, with a Super Valu buying franchise, super Valu is the largest independent retail supplier in the world in food merchandising; supplying some 1800 to 2000 stores in the middle west. Hood's has been averaging 18 employees and with completion of the new addition and modernization will add probably six more, Bill Hood said. Mrs. (Arlene) Hood has ably assisted her husband through the BURT - (Special) - Several railroad boxcars filled with grain derailed and overturned one mile south of here last Monday night. There were no personal injuries reported. v Chicago and North Western ^Railroad'personnel removed the grain to trucks and repaired the tracks.

The derailed cars were at the rear of the train, according to Vic Johnson, Burt depot agent. years in the store management £8W®^^ City & County Start Down Aisle In legal' Marriage Figuratively speaking, the Algona City Council and the Kossuth County Board of Supervisors have started down the aisle toward a pending marriage of law enforcement facilities . . . and just in time. A joint application for a matching funds grant from the Iowa Crime Commission was to be submitted before June 1,1971. So last Monday, the Board of Supervisors passed the following resolution: "RESOLVED, that the Kossuth County Board of Supervisors go on record as favoring further development of a plan for a joint Kossuth County-City of Algona facility for a communications and law enforcement center in accordance with preliminary proposals made by the architect employed by the City of Algona. "Be it further resolved, that the chairman of the Kossuth County Board of Supervisors be authorized and directed to join with the Mayor of the City of Algona, Iowa, in submitting an application to the Iowa Crime Commission for a matching funds grant for said facility for a communications and law enforcement center, and that said joint application be submitted prior to June 1, 1971." - COST ESTIMATE It's too early to affix a cost to the "said facility," since the two government groups will have to agree on one of the architect's blueprints (he has three now). At present, it is planned that the county will pay for the new or additional law enforcement installations and the city will pay for the remodeling of the City Hall which will also house the communications and detention center. The architect has estimated the remodeling cost at about $50,000. Back From Peace Corps Mr. and Mrs. KodI Bakken spent two years in the Peace Corps helping people.
