Severe Weather Awareness Week

MINNESOTA—Are you prepared for severe weather? At the April 2 City Council Meeting in Tamarack, a report was given by Tamarack Area Emergency Planning (TAEP). This Committee was appointed almost two years ago and has been busy following their Mission Statement: “To offer education and support to the residents of Tamarack and surrounding areas in emergency situations.”

In Minnesota, the week of April 21 – April 25 is Severe Weather Awareness Week. There will be statewide tornado drills on Thursday, April 24 at 1:45 p.m. and 6:55 p.m. Local county sirens and all NOAA Weather Radios in Minnesota will sound with a simulated tornado warning for both afternoon and evening drills. This is a great opportunity for residents to review emergency plans and procedures, and conduct emergency drills at work and at home.

This year’s focus for Severe Weather Awareness Week is a simple, but important, concept: “What if …?” This question can apply to almost any emergency situation but thinking through the answer now could be a life saver later. Nearly every county in Minnesota experiences some type of severe weather threat every season. Being informed about...

Zeithaml, et. al.). The Cromwell Municipal Liquor Store is one of those area businesses.

The Cromwell Municipal Liquor Store was founded in 1946, and has been in its present location since 1959. The Minnesota State Auditor’s office released a report (available online) earlier this year that analyzed municipal liquor store operations for the year 2012. The Cromwell Muni showed good results in comparison to its peers.

Per the State Auditor’s report: in 2012, 207 municipal liquor operations rang up $329.6 million dollars in sales, a four percent increase over 2011, with $27.2...

Cromwell Area Historical Club

If you are, or have been, a resident in the Cromwell area, the Cromwell Area Historical Club (CAHC) would like to hear from you. This club is building a historical resource of the history of this area and members do not have a lot of information about the last 50 years.

Head of the club, Judy Koivisto, said that all information would be welcome, including documents and photographs. “People don’t even have to leave their things with us,” she explained. “They can bring them in and we will copy them and give them right back.”

The organization idea was planted in 1999 when Judy was asked to gather historical information for a booth at Harvest Fest. “This sparked my interest to see how Cromwell came into existence, including the early schools and how people built their towns,” Judy...
