Lake County is first at show
Helen Westholm carried off the honor of having the first prize lamb at the St. Paul Junior Livestock Show Tuesday and came within a close margin of the grand championship. Her lamb would have taken the grand championship except that it was a little too heavy, according to County Agent Torstein Grinager, who accompanied the Lake County 4-H Club exhibitors to the show. Miss Westholm, altogether, won $90 for the care of her lamb which auctioned at 65 cents, per pound, and brought her $80 at the sale. She won a prize of $8 from the livestock show and $6 from the Shropshire Breeders Association.
“Object” sparks lake hunt
A U.S. Coast Guard boat and an Air Force helicopter were out on a close check of Lake Superior in the Two Harbors area Sunday morning to learn the identity of a “mysterious cigar shaped” object spotted floating over a mile from land by shore residents. Lake County sheriff Roland Falk first learned of the object late Saturday afternoon shortly after Mrs. Erwin Riley, a summer resident of Two Harbors, made the sighting. Falk was scanning the lake surface with powerful binoculars and was able to spot something floating about a mile and a half out, but is was getting too dark to identify it. Similarly, Jack Ray, a shore resident saw the article through binoculars. The strange-appearing, bobbing object turned out to be a four- foot drifting log according to Sundays search crew.
Louisiana Pacific happy to be in Two Harbors
Last week we were able to arrange a tour of Louisiana-Pacific’s waferboard siding plant with new plant manager, Pete Wainer. The plant can produce approximately 90 million feet of waferboard siding. It employs around 64 people, with 15-16 employees on a shift.
“When under full production, we will staff with roughly 100 employees” said Wainer. In a normal production shift of eight hours, the plant uses 100 cords or 1500 cords per week. Wood is supplied by local loggers on a contract basis. Wainer, an employee of Louisiana Pacific for six years said, “We are glad to be in Two Harbors and know we can help the economy”.
