1911: Four-horse grader purchased


Sunday visitors at the Clendenings were Mike and Perianne from Woonsocket.

Jonathan Bornitz, a son of Travis and Michelle Bornitz and a kindergarten student at Iroquois Elementary School, was chosen as one of the Little Chiefs at the boys basketball game on Jan. 8 held in Iroquois. Richard and Nancy Bornitz attended the Iroquois-SBA basketball game to see their grandson as the Little Chief.

It has been a mild winter so far.

History Note

1911 – A.N. Barber of Esmond represented Kingsbury County at the legislative session in Pierre. A four-horse road grader was taken on trial, and if proved satisfactory, one would be bought. After inspecting it at work, it was decided to buy it at a cost of $150.00. The next month, four bids were received for the four-horse grader and five bids for road plows. Bids were tabled until next year, because the township board was upset over the $3.77 freight they had to pay on the first road grader that they had purchased.
