COTTONWOOD Bräts & Brew Fest plans are taking shape. The sauerkraut is in the crock and board members are gathering items for the auctions. As a side event this year, we are looking for anyone who would like to donate a bottle of wine. We will accept any kind. We will sell corks that are numbered and you will get the corresponding bottle. We are looking for anyone who makes sausage or beer to sign up and compete for the $50 prize in each category. The categories are beer or cider, sausage, side dish, bread and dessert. German dishes are preferred, but anything is acceptable. The date for this event is Oct. 25. Last date to donate items is Oct. 17. Contact the library for entry forms.
Our condolences go out to Father Paul Wander, whose brother, Jerry, passed away last week. Pray for his family during this difficult time.
Noted author, Trevor Loudon of New Zealand, spoke at the Kooskia City Park Sunday, Sept. 14. What he had to say was very interesting. He has a good, honest view of the state of the world, and what can be done to change it for the better. His newly released book, “The Enemy Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress,” is like no other book written on American politics. He is interested in what is happening here in the U.S.A. because if our country falls to socialism, so will New Zealand. He stressed that the answer is to elect conservative people to office this fall. Don’t say it doesn’t make any difference if you vote or not. Empathy is our worst enemy. Many elections are decided by just a few votes.
