10-Algona la.) Upper D«s Moin«* Tuesday, March 5, 1968 Sexton Has Era Of Expansion & Progress SEXTON - February has been a month of great progress for Sexton with the addition of two new businesses and a new family adding to the population. Ed Eischen's station is becoming the center of a lot of activity with the addition of a new line of products, celebrated with an open house on Monday evening. Now the local farmers have the perfect excuse; they'll be telling the little woman they have to run down to the station to order their insecticide for the coming yearl Of course, it isn't all business at the corner as Ed's place was the scene for what is becoming an annual turtle feed in this area. When the farmers get stocked up on insecticide they have one last excuse - they can come down to Charlie's to get their saws sharpened and if they bring just one at a time they should be able to get in a trip to Sexton every week until spring work starts. Welcome to Mr. and Mrs. Joe Penning and four children who have bought the former Roger Arndorfer home at the south end of town. Now they are really going to have to get used to city living after being a half mile out in the country for so long. - o - The Sexton Friendly Club, at last notice, will meet this Thursday afternoon at the home of Mrs. John Jennings. Mr. and Mrs. Jennings are settled at home in time for club after spending the last month taking care of the Leo Sabins* farm while Mr. and Mrs. Sabin vacationed in Florida. John Jennings looks to be in such good shape you'd think he was the one on the southern vacation, but it may all be heredity. When the Jennings attended the golden wedding celebration of the Wm. Speichers' in Titonka it made a total of four such occasions in John's family. Do you suppose John is in good enough condition to stay for the club meeting ? If only we were all fortunate enough to have Nell Opheim's kind of company this time of year. Mrs. Alfred Opheim, Doug and Jeff came from Fairmont for a few days' visit and are making a good start on spring housecleaning for Nell. If we just get enough snow to hold down the local farms this spring she is going to have a real head start on the rest of us. Sharon Hix has had some mighty interesting weekends this month! She was a delegate from her Irvington 4-H Club to a weekend camp at Madrid where all the kids all go to learn for the coming 4-H year and have a good time while they are at it. But this past weekend must have been even more interesting as she accompanied her parents to Minneapolis where they parted company. Mr. and Mrs. Art Hix, JoAnn and Janet visited with Mrs. Hix»s brother and family, Mr. and Mrs. Dewey Smith, but Sharon caught up on whafs going on in the big city by visiting former Sexton resident, Kathy Pruisman. Now we should hear all the latest on what kind of fellas are available in the city and has Kathy found one of her own yet? She is sure going to be hard-put to make as beautiful a bride as her elder sister, Frances, was this past month, At last report all Sexton resi- dents are well and active although there was proof that the home is still a mighty dangerous place as Mrs. Don PeCoy has a badly cut hand in a losing battle with a fruit jar. Frank Stratton stopped to call on his father, John Stratton, on Sunday. He was on his way back to the farm at Alexandria, Minn, with another load of farm junk left at the former home at Thorington. John said he would go along for a visit the next time when it's a little warmer in Minnesota. If any local folks were out around on Friday evening and saw two local boys, it must have been quite a shock. It isn't often you see George Hix and Mike Huff made up in coonskin coats and 1920 gangster outfits but the boys were all ready for a Roaring Twenties party at junior high and if that's the way the guys really dressed, then if s no mystery where the name for that era came from. There is still one great mystery around here though. Why do young couples from out of town, pick Sexton as the ideal place to park? If this winter is any indication, by spring there won't be any secluded spots left for our own young people 1 SENECA Mrs. Alfred Petersen attended a birthday party Wednesday afternoon at the Norval Gochanour home at Armstrong honoring Gwen on her birthday anniversary.
