Commissioners discuss graders

Just when they thought they had all the problems solved, a new problem with a new grader came along.

The Haakon County Commissioners took possession of two new graders just a couple of months back, and one has been taken back to Butler Machine for the second time. Alex Kuleza, Butler’s representative, reported to the commissioners at their August 10 meeting. He said the first time the grader was in was for a failed seal in the transmission. They thought it had come partially out during assembly at the factory. The replaced seal has now done what the first one did.


Pastor Al's bridge is work of salvation

People who know Pastor Al Brucklacher know that he is a talented carpenter who likes to have a project or two underway.

What they may not know is that one of his recent projects was a big one. Brucklacher has built a bridge across the Bad River at his place west of Philip. We’re not talking about a footbridge, either. It is seventy feet long and sturdy enough to drive a vehicle across, although he hasn’t driven his tractor across it yet.
