The Browerville Tigers captured their sixth straight Section Championship with a 28-13 victory over the Brandon-Evansville Chargers last Friday at the Fargo Dome. The Tigers will host Clearbrook-Gonvick in the first round of the State Tournament at 7:30 p.m. on Friday.
I spent a very interesting lunch hour a few weeks back with four of the most talkative people in Browerville: Kelly Spandl, Bevin Smieja, Jacob Boone and Michael Jones. The four, sixth graders were chosen for me by the elementary school principal Mr. Oven. I don’t think they were chosen because they were the shyest in the school. It has been said that the best way to take the measure of a community is by talking with its youth. The one question I couldn’t get an answer to was, “What don’t you like about Browerville?” They were thoughtful, but couldn’t give me an answer. We got back to talking about football playoffs and easier questions to answer.
Northern Waste Management’s application for a license to haul garbage in Todd County was denied at the Todd County Commissioner’s board meeting on October 31. Board Chairman Ken Sorenson abstained from the roll call vote. Commissioner Stan Sumey told the board that he did not want to issue a license to such a big company. “My position has always been in favor of the owner-operator,” Sumey said. Northern Waste Systems of Fargo purchased Staples Sanitary Systems in August but failed to apply for a county garbage hauling license.
