Now that school is open, I wish to remind all drivers to be aware of kids going to and from school and to watch for school buses. It’s the law that you must stop when school buses have their flashing lights on.

It is also the law that you must stop and let people cross when they are trying to cross the street in a crosswalk. Not only is it the law, it is good common sense and it may save a life.

 Well, Rustic Lore is over for this year and the weather was as best as it could have been. The parade was just great with eight bands participating. Rustic Lore dates back to 1976 when the city’s community event was moved to the summer from the winter Snowmobile Derby. I send my thank you to all those people that work so hard to make it a success.

Speaking of people working hard, we salute those in Boyceville who are putting together the centennial of the High School this week. A complete schedule of events can be found in this issue of the Tribune Press Reporter. There are tours of the two schools, tailgating before the football game and the game between the Bulldogs and Rosholt at 1:30 Saturday afternoon has free admission.

I wish to express my appreciation to those from this area that stopped by at the Minnesota Newspaper Museum at the State Fair. Our best day was Labor Day when almost 2,000 people coming into our newspaper office to watch the equipment working to print our newspaper the way it was done back in the 1930s.
