H-Algeno, (lo.) Upper Dei MelniM Thursday, D«c. 8, 1966 Sexton Has Light Problems Just Like City Sexton has been having its difficulties trying to become a modern city. The new street lights have not all been on at once all summer. The light company had Just replaced the shot-out lights on main street when a car leaving the station made a wide sweep of the road and took out a pole guy wire before heading out of town, leaving the north end of town in darkness, Sexton residents are still wondering what happened to the six toys Involved in shooting out the street lights here. They were apprehended through the alert action of a local citizen, but there has been no news on the case since. - o - The water situation Is much better as the station and Art Mix's have both completed their hookup to the Don PeCoy well. The well drillers have returned for a much shorter stay this time to put in a new well at the Sexton Store. You wouldn't think everyone would be leaving, since the place is becoming modern, but thoughts of last year's three-day snow storm may have something to do with it. Mr. and Mrs. Martin Mlmbach are leaving next week to spend the winter out west, with Christmas in Arizona with the L. Taylors and then going to California with Mrs. Mlm- bach's son for a visit. There are a number of other plans for a winter trip. That short trip to Dallas, Texas was only to get Mary McMahon in the mood for travel if the rumors are right. Seems if reservations are ever available, she is making plans for a winter cruise. And there are still rumors that Mrs. Nell Opheim will actually make that long dreamed-of trip to California to visit her son, Paul. For a place where everyone knows everybody elses business, like all small towns, It's surprising how well a secret can be kept. For it was indeed a surprise when 25 neighbors arrived at the Art Olsen home last Thursday night to bid them farewell. The Olsen family was one of the early settlers of this area and Art is the last to leave Sexton. They were to move to their new home in Algona on South Dodge street Saturday. The secret may have teen kept so well as the right fellows were picked to keep the Art Olsens at home when Elmer and Albert Tech called on them early in the evening. For once more Elmer has made a trip to Mason City, had surgery at the hospital and returned home before anyone knew about It. Just l>ecause It's a small town doesn't mean folks aren't busy as they found out at the last Friendly Club meeting at Mrs. August Kirschbaums.
