Thumbs up, thumbs down

January 9, 2015
Estherville News
Thumbs up to Dickinson-Emmet Farm Service Agency Director Larry Lago for a very informative program on the 2014 Farm Bill Tuesday at Iowa Lakes Community College. Larry always does a good job of explaining the intricate details of the program in an understandable manner. The election process started Nov. 17 and ends March 31. Thumbs up to fire departments from Estherville, Gruver and Wallingford for their response to the fire Wednesday morning. The important thing is that there was no loss of life which would have been tragic. Clothing donations are being taken at the Estherville Lincoln Central central office for children in one family. Call the central district office at 362-2692 for details. Thumbs up to Lori Westfall on being named the new manager at Firestone in Estherville. Lori is a friendly and familiar face to just about everyone in town and she’s already been the ‘go-to’ person for customers for many years. Congratulations, Lori! Thumbs up to Jared Colegrove on his plans to move his State Farm office to the former Romantic Treasures building further east on Central Avenue. He plans on relocating his offices there by April 1. The larger building will give the office more space plus offer storage rental opportunities. Call him at 362-3843 if you’re interesting in renting a space. Thumbs up to Estherville Lincoln Central Superintendent Tara Paul on a thorough and informative presentation at Thursday’s Rotary meeting on plans for the Demoney Elementary addition. Tara did a great job of explaining the project to Rotarians. Probably the biggest thumbs up has to go to the district for doing the project without any additional property taxes. The addition will be paid with the School Infrastructure Local Option (SILO) tax. Thumbs down to the vandals who threw picnic tables off the bridge into the east fork of the Des Moines River at Okamanpedan State Park and damaged four doors on the shelter house. It was childish, foolish and stupid and the persons who did it need to spend some time in jail so they they can think long and hard about it. If anybody has any information about these crimes or any other criminal activity in Emmet County, they are asked to contact the Emmet County Sheriff’s Office at 712-362-2639.
