The town of Ruthton has been getting a bit of a shout-out recently with the release of a new hardcover book, “Ruthton Recollections” by native son James W. Park. The book is a collection of remembrances of Park’s youth in Ruthton.
“My dad was a rural mail carrier out of Ruthton for 40 years and retired in 1963,” Polk said. “I graduated from Ruthton Public School in 1954 and went on to the University of Minnesota.”
