Mystery Lady Calls Sexton Her Old Home SEXTON - Sexton now has a picture of a mystery lady to be identified .. Mrs. Harry Thilges of Irvington, received a clipping from her sister, Mrs. Walter Ohm of Palm Springs, California with the following information printed under the picture. "Radio-dispatcher hard at work is Michelle Ailor, shown here at work with the Palm Springs Police Department. An employee since 1957, Michelle is a native of Sexton, Iowa, and now resides in Palm Springs. She has "two children\Linda Merrill/ &• and Ladd Summerfelt, 20, both married." Questioning of present long time Sexton residents dredged up memories of former families as far back as 40 years ago, but after considering everyone from the bootlegger to the banker no Michelles were remembered. So much curiosity has been aroused we plan to write to the lady asking if she would tell us who she was when she lived here and why she still claims Sexton as her home town. Pert and pretty as Mother's. Bretons, bonnets & half hats, in strawcloth & laces, White w, pastel trim. - 0 - The heavy snows brought troubles to this area, but they are going to be nothing compared to the rising waters at Sexton. A number of basements have flooded and a greater number of small boys have arrived home with boots full of water. Lake Corrine has now taken over much oftheGabrielsonfarm and offers a good place to stock for summer fishing. Jack Weder- quist wouldn't mind a handy fishing spot across the road, but finding a Coot swimming in his garage makes a fellow think about evacuating. A large wild goose also made it's home around the Wederquist house for a couple of weeks, so Jack could take on a part time game warden job. The last snow storm also made people realize how important it is to be on good terms with your neighbors. There were a few who couldn't get out of the house until someone came to shove out the doorway. Francis Esser didn't take any chances on no one remembering him as he escaped out a window of his little house before help arrived, but he had good reason, his stock of fuel had run out and it was getting cold. Don't think one of our local girls has taken up the magazine selling racket when you see her at the door with a folder and a smile. Kathy Pruisman has taken the job of canvassing Sexton for information for a new directory. After Mrs. George Hix had been doing so well there was unexpected bad news when her latest checkup showed a possible need for more transfusions. She is due for a return checkup at Rochester in the near future. This past month of storms and no school has made it hard enough to remember what day of the week it is, but when our Tuesday paper comes on Monday and the Thursday paper on Wednesday, it sure doesn't help keep the week straightened out. Mildred Baylor of Wesley was a caller at the Art Klein home this week. It's really news when the quietest fellow around town gets his picture on the front page of the paper. Art Klein ended up right in the front of the group pictured attending the Corn clinic held at the VFW hall. He's the one in the plaid shirt and glasses. Glennda Gabrielson spent a week here at home on vacation between quarters at college at Cedar Falls. The Steve McCalls waited until the weekend for moving and ended up with the first rainy day of the spring. Mr. and Mrs. Clair Hovey got a real "Sexton Welcome" when they moved into the home vacated by the McCalls. In fact, after moving day the Hovey's may be wondering if they want to settle here or not. The electric light pole with the transformer across the road in front of Mrs. Nell Opheims burned almost through before Mr. Hovey discovered it. The Britt headquarters sent out men to replace the pole, but electric service was out for the afternoon at some places including the new Hovey residence. Melvin Ward spent Sunday with Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Phillips while Mrs. Ward visited at Norway with Mr. Ward and looked over their future home tow Burl" FIC.S.
