50 Years Ago

June 15, 1972

On June 2, 1972, at approximately 3 p.m., Deputy Douglas G. Skon, Bertha, made an illegal u-turn in front of the Eagle Bowling Lanes. Upon realizing his error, Deputy Skon issued himself a ticket. He appeared in Justice of the Peace Court of Mrs. Liz Westergren on June 10, where he plead guilty and was fined $10 and court costs.


The Eagle Bend Volunteer Fire Department answered two calls on Monday, June 12. The first call, at approximately 1 p.m., was to the Jim Gabler farm to extinguish a fire in their pickup truck. Mrs. Gabler had attempted to start the truck when it apparently backfired and began to smoke. The second call at approximately 7 p.m. was the Mervin Johnson residence. This was also a vehicle fire that burned the wiring of the auto before being extinguished.
