15 Years Ago July 30, 1991 Sun The first of four "Welcome to Morris" signs were installed at the Stevens County Fairgrounds on South Highway 59 Friday. A second sign was installed by Berger Chevrolet on East Hwy. 28, and two more will come later on West Hwy. 28 and South Hwy. 9. The 8 feet by 16 feet signs were designed and constructed by Al Mathison of Morris.

Fifteen cars were in the line-up for the enduro race on opening night of the Stevens County Fair Wednesday. Fires and other mishaps eliminated quite a few racers from the competition. In the end only eight crossed the finish line under the checkered flag. The enduro race was timed for one hour and 15 minutes. The object was to make the most laps around the track within the time limit. Racers came from as far away as Akely to race on the dirt track at the fair. The winner was from nearby Kensington. Joey Nessman took first place with a total of 112 laps.

Can six packs of Pop Rocks and six cans of soda make your stomach explode? Is it possible to get stuck on an airplane toilet?

The year started off with a bang. As our trees broke bud this spring, we had some cool damp weather that lingered for a couple of weeks. As a result the Anthracnose disease was out in full force and attacked many plants. The first calls coming into the office were from homeowners seeing leaves dropping from their ash trees. Ash is very susceptible to this disease and will abort severely infected leaves. Fortunately, ash trees have been through this problem before and they begin the process of producing new leaves.
This week, I thought I'd do some real Minnesota recipes, along with some fact and fantasy. I promise I won't do any lutefisk, though! Paul Bunyan's Split Pea Soup Paul Bunyan sent one of his cooks to a nearby town to get a wagonful of split peas. On the the journey home, the wagon broke and spilled the full load of peas into a lake. To make the best of the situation, Paul threw 300 hams into the lake and then built a big fire around it. Dozens of cooks paddled around in rowboats to keep things from scorching. After a few hours, it was ready--a lake full of split pea soup!
