The Fourth of July came and went. There is no smashed candy leftover on the parade route, no leftover cleanup in the park, no messes from the street dance. These are usually things that Armstrong residents see the days after the Fourth of July Celebration. This year was different.
Few people realize that Emmet County had over thirty post offices from 1857 to the present day. They were not all open at the same time, but in 1900 there were thirteen different post offices in out county. The first post office was established in 1857 and carried the name Emmet. George Granger was the postmaster.
With all school districts required to have their Return to Learn plan submitted to the state by July 1st, district patrons now have an idea of how things will look in August.
Diane Jorgensen has been reading books since she was four years old. The perfect job for someone who loves books would be a library director. Especially at an active library like Ringsted. Diane started working at the Ringsted library as Director on April 1st of 2020. However, this is not her first job as a library director.
The reopening of the Emmet County has been going well – or at least as well as can be expected during a pandemic. Emmet County Attorney Melanie Summers Bauler reported on the reopening to the Emmet County Board of Supervisors at their meeting Tuesday, June 30.
Over the past few months and COVID-19 on everyone’s minds, very few things have brought a smile to people’s faces. So I am hoping that Jackson Zittritsch’s excitement after collecting a few handfuls of candy during the Bancroft 4th of July parade reminds everyone that the little things can make anyone smile.
