Law enforcement officials learned a Donnelly man was driving under the influence when he drove two different cars he mistakenly thought he owned, a complaint filed in Stevens County District Court alleges. John Robert Bristle 72, of Donnelly, drove another owner's 2007 Chevrolet away from DeToy's Restaurant in Morris Nov. 4 while intoxicated, the complaint alleges. Bristle drove that car to the Morris Liquor Store where he left in a 2008 Chevrolet Impala that he wrongly thought was his, the complaint alleges.

Keep it, sell it or sell part of it. Stevens County Coordinator Becky Young said the Stevens County Board of Commissioners has those three options for the Forty Acre Pit south of Morris. Young initiated the pit discussion because the farming lease ends in March and because the county recently had to start accepting concrete at the landfill. The gravel pit has no more gravel to mine. It hasn't been used for many years until the county highway department recently used it for spoils from construction.
Pat and Lonnie Anderson don't appear creepy as they pass out hot cider on Halloween. Pat Anderson even drops to one knee to place a lighted plastic glow necklace around a toddler's neck. They are friendly and smiley, but there lawn sure was creepy. The Andersons decorate their lawns, front side and back at the corner of East Second Street and Circle Pines for Halloween each year. "This is our 15th year. We love it," Pat Anderson said. "It's just so much fun."

A project hasn't even been approved but Stevens County Commissioners already know it would cost more than the available budget. The county board sponsored an information meeting Nov. 1 on possible repairs or improvements to Stevens County Ditch 18. The board serves as the trustees for the ditch and its drainage district. It has received three petitions for repairs from landowners in the ditch system but the estimated cost of those repairs is higher than the $116,000 the county can spend by law on any repairs.
It was a beautiful night for ghosts and goblins in Morris on Halloween. The sidewalks were filled with Super Heros, spooks and other creatures that night. A few spooky folks got into the action earlier in the week with a haunted hayride Oct. 27 organized by the Morris Area High School FFA, BPA and student council. The hayride traveled through part of Pomme de Terre park.
