With trendy residents and our many boutiques, Hendricks continues a proud legacy of shaping regional and national fashion trends. Local males are once again inspiring the imaginations of leading fashion designers. We look to the streets of Hendricks to see what innovative designs will eventually be seen on the red carpets of Los Angeles and the catwalks of New York City.
Thanks to Harvey Engesmoe, attire that could only be found on sand takes on new life. Beachwear has now gone upscale, and this “muscle beach” look has become the summer’s trendiest fad…

There’s no time like fair time, especially for Johnny Vlieger, who lives on a farm straight east of Hendricks. He couldn’t be more excited about his first-time fair experience.
Johnny has a Holstein heifer, June, named after June Carter Cash. (Johnny just happens to be a Johnny Cash fan). Last week at the Lincoln County Fair in Tyler, he exhibited his Holstein calf. “We have a lot of calves,” Johnny said. “I picked June because she was the tamest and friendliest. She looked the best.”

Volunteerism makes the world go ‘round, or so it would appear. According to the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), also known as Americorps and Seniorcorps, 35.4% of Minnesota residents volunteered in 2015, making Minnesota second-ranked in the nation for volunteerism. According to A.C.E. Coordinator Rosanne Lasnetski, each year the Lincoln County Active Generations (formerly the Lincoln County Council on Aging) meets and nominates county residents “who have done outstanding things in the county.” This year’s Outstanding Senior Citizens are Dale Artz of Hendricks and Beverly Wilson of Ivanhoe.

The Lincoln County Board of Commissioners met Tuesday, Aug. 6 for their regular meeting. All members were present at the beginning of the meeting, but Commis­sioner Rick Hamer had to leave early for an ap­pointment.
Risk Management Con­sultant Don Daraskev­ich of MCIT spoke to the board about managing county risk, especially in the area of Work­man’s Comp. According to Daraskevich, MCIT is a risk management service and was established for the purpose of providing property, liability, auto and worker’s comp ser­vices to government and public entities. They were established in 1979 and Lincoln County is a mem­ber of MCIT. Because the county is a member, they will receive a dividend from MCIT.

Paulette Ford operates a pet retirement home out of her home on Divi­sion Street in Hendricks. Animals placed in a pet retirement home are not adopted out but remain at the home for the dura­tion of their lives. Paulette takes in elderly dogs and cats, allowing their retire­ment to be happy with lots of love and affection until their death. She takes in pets belonging to people she knows, including a wolfhound breeder, the Marshall Pet Rescue where she is a board member, and pets that have come through the Hendricks Vet Clinic, where she used to work following her retire­ment from the medical field. Her limit is only two dogs and up to five cats.

Plant Patrol keeps Hendricks beautiful

The Hendricks Plant Patrol does an amazing job taking care of the hanging plants on Main Street and flowerpots all over town. Barb Nelson, a new member of the Plant Patrol, is pictured taking her turn watering last week. The weekly rotation of workers water at their own discretion. If it is a dry, hot week, daily watering is needed. If rainy and cool, not as often. A big thank you to all who help with the beautiful plants.
