News from Clarissa's Past
25 Years Ago
December 13, 1995
Residents and their families enjoyed a special Christmas buffet supper at the Clarissa Care Center on Saturday night. The cold weather cut down on the crowd of shoppers at the CTCCC Craft Sale. Cindy Wagner, Shelia Morrow, and Marion Fragodt enjoyed the time visiting, working on crafts, and reading in between customers.
The majority of Todd County residents have to pay for a long-distance call to call the sheriff in a non-emergency situation. Only Long Prairie and Browerville residents can presently call toll free. That may change. Sheriff David Kircher asked the commissioners at their December 7 meeting for permission to check with the long-distance telephone carriers for their best rate on an 800 number. Kircher said the charge is roughly 15 to 20 cents per minute. The commissioners were very supportive of his suggestion.
