The return on every dollar spent at a Morris business is significant. Most studies show that for every $1 spent locally the return is $3 to $8, said Bruce Nustad of the Minnesota Retailers Association. The $1 turns into wages paid to employees and income to business owners who in turn, by goods and services in the local community and those businesses turn the dollar over yet again.
Santa Claus stopped in Morris Dec. 2 to visit with kids at the Morris Eagles Club. The visit was sponsored by the Morris Eagles Auxiliary. A bunch of kids waited for their turn to visit the famous holiday hero.
Kennlee Koehler, 5, knew exactly why she was at the Eagles Club in Morris on Friday, Dec. 2. "To see Santa," she said. Koehler was sitting at a table eating a basket of chicken strips while she waited for the jolly old elf to arrive. Koehler said Santa Claus also likes chicken as in chicken nuggets. She knows more about Santa Claus. On Christmas Eve, "he goes around Morris," as he bring presents to kids. He uses his sleigh pulled by "two reindeer." This Christmas he may deliver books to Koehler. Or maybe "American Girl doll clothes," she said.

The news of the attack on Pearl Harbor had just been announced and Leslie Nelson's dad sent him to share the news with road workers who were about two miles away from the family's farm. "I walked the two miles up and told them what had taken place," Nelson said. "I talked to the boys hauling the gravel. One of the men looked at me and he had tears in his eyes." "'You'll be the one of the first ones called (to war),'" the worker said to Nelson. "He shook his head. It was a creepy feeling." The worker was right.
