WORTHINGTON — Isn’t it crazy how some little thing will get you thinking about a topic? I am referring to a fun conversation with a staff person at Crossroads Care Center where I live. Somehow I mentioned to one of the aides about how long ago, we used to clean up the water under the ice box. If the drip pan was too full, it would overflow.
WORTHINGTON — Nearly every city has a summer or fall festival. My home town had a “Corn Festival, mainly because there was the Big Stone Canning Company, which was between Ortonville and Big Stone, S.D. The very first canned corn came out of this factory in 1929. The “Corn Festival” was not celebrated from 1936 to 1945 due to World War II and the outbreak of polio.
