Welcome another edition of the Donnelly news.

Weather news: winter has officially arrived with about a foot of snow on Mon. so the order of the day on Tuesday was to dig out. Special thanks to the Good Samaritan who blew out my sidewalk this week.  I think most farmers had most of their crops harvested and fall fieldwork done b/4 the snow came although I saw a un-harvested corn field by Starbuck on Sun

Parents of the couple are Chuck Meixel and Deb Powell and Steve and Cathy Backman. Grandparents of the bride are Chuck and Sherry Meixel and George and Shirley Libbon. Grandparents of the groom are Elizabeth Ascheman, the late John Backman Jr., and the late Leonard and Violet Wulf. The couple is currently residing near Morris.
Further evidence that every vote counts: after a recount in Stevens county commissioner district 5 there was a tie between Phil Gausman and Laurie Vara, Phil won the tie breaker and will continue to serve as county commissioner.
Past week I attended the meatball supper at Faith Lutheran-Morris and visitation for Cora Stone at the Starbuck funeral home (I sold my wind charger on the farm to her son Arne)
