Memories Gone By

News from Browerville's Past

25 Years Ago

April 10, 1997

Heavier than usual spring flooding has reminded many Todd County residents of the big floods of 1974 when homes were damaged, businesses closed and parts of Highway 71 were under water. Township officers were out in force last week checking rural roads and flagging dangerous areas. Numerous culverts have washed out, closing some roads altogether and some gravel roads are partially underwater. Travelers should be extremely cautious when traveling off of main routes as some washouts occur after an area has been inspected and may not all be flagged. The road into Rooster Ridge was completely washed out on Friday, April 4.


Recently township fire wardens attended annual training sessions in Todd County. During the training sessions, fire wardens were instructed in what can be burned and how to write burning permits, as well as discussing local permit issues. In addition to permit training, Richard and Hattie Irsfeld from Hartford Township announced their retirement as township fire wardens. The Irsfeld’s were presented with a framed picture of their 25 years of providing volunteer service to their township.
