'Musings' from Historical Society

Do you remember Trukken Leather Shop? Stuhr's Drug Store? How about Fiscus Funeral Home? These and the names of 24 other Storm Lake businesses appear on the advertising board that originally hung in the Turner Brothers Barber and Beauty Shop. Through the generosity of Mark Redenbaugh the board is now housed at the Buena Vista County Historical Museum. Old timers will remember Turner's as being located below Dumbaugh's (now Anderson Books and More) with entrance down the stairs.

SL Kiwanis Fishing Day to be held

Get your gear ready for a fun Kiwanis Fishing Day on Storm Lake Saturday May 17. The tournament runs from 7 a..m. to 3 p.m.

Prizes will be similar to previous successful Fishing Days, including: Longest walleye - $300, second $120, third $80. Heaviest catfish - $70, second $50, third $30.

Adult entry fee is $10, kids $5, and families for $15. Kiwanis Beavers and individual winners will split registration money over $1,250. Once the weather decides it's spring and with the water levels rising, the Beavers are expecting a good turnout this year. Some reports of shad dying under the ice may increase the walleye bite. Catfish angling will continue to be excellent.

Headquarters on the East Side of Storm Lake at Lakeside Marina.
