County Board keeps levy hike under 8 percent
Members of the public attending last week’s county taxation information meeting mostly had issues with their individual land valuation circumstances;  and none were opposed to the fact that county spending is increasing by almost eight percent in 2019.  Final action by the Board last week adopted a levy increase for 2019 of 7.88 percent (minus the $24,000 levy increase for the Chisago Lakes Lake Improvement District which stands alone. Those properties will see a 7.9 percent increase.)

Center City encounters hurdle at old jail; levy unchanged
The old county jail in Center City is being put into a deep sleep until it can be marketed and sold; and that necessitates that water service be shut-off for winter.  Without heat in the building pipes could freeze and burst and because everybody has moved to the new jail, damage could go un-noticed.

Nothing like a live nativity to get you in Christmas spirit; we need your socks
This Saturday you, your family and your friends are invited to the live Nativity at First United Methodist Church, Lindstrom.  The shows are 100 percent outdoors, so please dress accordingly.  You will get to see the December 25 scene in Bethlehem that changed the world.  I always have trouble describing the show other than it will move you.  I love it.  Please take my word, it is worth getting bundled up and sitting outside for a bit.

It's the season for cookies
 It is the season of winter……..Br-r-r-r. Special  parties, shopping, baking, homemade gifts and whatever else you have on your list of things to get done in the days ahead before the celebration of Christmas. My list isn’t very long as each of our 5 children takes  a holiday and entertains the rest of the family at their home. All of our grandchildren are young adults and they appreciate given gift cards which lead them to choosing something they would like to have. Our one great-grandson is in to the “Peppa Pig” craze so that’s easy to do. Yea for the pigs!

Tree lightings were a blast, still time to see Santa, Christmas meal needs your help
Wow, what a weekend we had for tree lighting ceremonies.  Lindstrom had the luck of a beautiful snowfall during theirs. Chisago City and Lindstrom both had tons of people come out to kick off the Christmas season.  The kids who attended got to see Santa and Mrs. Claus and from the looks of it, they couldn't be more excited.  Thanks to both of the cities for doing such a wonderful job, it was great.

Warm you up, good for you too!
Millions of Americans, as well as in other countries, eat soup often. This staple has come a long way since the cavemen made the first-known broth-based meals dating back to 6000 B. C. Common ingredients at that time included the hippopotamus and other animal bones. Although they didn’t have modern cooking supplies, an animal carcass supplied the leak-proof pouch needed for cooking the soup. Don’t ask why the carcass didn’t catch fire while the soup was cooking! I’ll stick with a huge kettle or Dutch oven.  It is said the word “soup” most likely came from the Old English word “sop” meaning to soak up liquid or broth with a piece of bread. This reminds me of the traditional Swedish Christmas dinner called, “dop-eh-greeta” phonetically pronounced by Alice! Sorry about that my Swedish friends.

Neighborhood donates safety alarms to Family Pathways
As the president of Neighborhood Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Electrical for over 20 years, William Sherk knows the dangers of carbon monoxide not only as a professional, but also with the loss of a loved one. “Carbon monoxide is odorless, colorless, and can be deadly. I want to remind everyone how important it is to have at least one working carbon monoxide alarm in your home. With regular check-ups of your heating systems as well as battery replacement every six months and alarm replacement every five to seven years, you’ll be well-prepared to prevent tragedy.” Sherk stated.

Rain couldn't keep the throngs from Lighting Festival; lots more this weekend
We went to the Taylors Falls Lighting Festival lastFriday.  You may recall the weather was anything but favorable.  It was a steady cold rain that basically never stopped until late Friday night.  We discussed how many people we thought would be at the parade and festival due to the inclement weather.  I assumed there would be a fraction of what is considered a normal crowd. Guess what? I was wrong.  It was absolutely packed.  People were everywhere, getting wet and not caring a bit about it.  It was awesome.  The parade was great, longer than I can rermember, and the lighting of the streets was so impressive.  Thanks so much to the committee members who work so hard just so the thousands of people who come over the weekend can enjoy it.  It is such a great event and it seems to only get better with time.
