Children enjoy the events
at the Renville County Fair

The Children’s Coin Hunt is a popular event during the annual Renville County Fair. This event is sponsored by SRT Communications, and who doesn’t like finding money, even if you have to dig through some straw or dust? Another event that the children get involved in is the Kids’ Tractor Pull, which is also sponsored by SRT Communications. Both events were held on Tuesday, July 8th.

The Mohall Public Library has been holding their summer Reading Program at the Library on Wednesdays from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The Reading Program started on Wednesday, June 11th and will continue through Wednesday, August 13th.

Any children in the community are welcome to participate. Sarah Jensen, Librarian, says Sarah Porcello has been helping out again with the Reading Program this year. Each week she reads books to the children and then they participate in a craft which ties in with the story. The children also have time to look through books on their own and can even check books out when they leave.

It is important that children continue to read during the summer and work on their reading skills. The Library is open every Monday through Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. This past week, Sarah Jensen reported that the Library received 80 new children’s fiction and non-fiction books through the assistance of a grant from the Libri Foundation, as well as outside donations. A total of $1,400 was used to purchase the hardbound books. $1,050 of that money was received from the Libri Foundation and $350 was from private donations.

Some of the new books are entitled, “Saving Animals from Hurricanes” Book on “Space”; “Storm Chasers; and Nightime Ninja. Stop in and browse through these books and check out some of the other new books. There are also several new adult books as well.

Break-ins at Mohall Library, White Drug, and Cenex in Mohall
The Renville County Sheriff’s Office has reported that three businesses were broken into during the weekend of June 28th.

Around 3:00 a.m. Monday morning, June 30th, Deputy David Blocker received a call in regards to the alarm being set off at Cenex in Mohall. By the time he arrived on the scene the intruder(s) had gotten into the building and had left the scene. They entered through the walk-in door on the east side of the building. According to the report, the only thing missing from the store was some cigarettes. Deputy Blocker did state this last week that there is a security camera in the building and around the grounds and that they are viewing that for the suspect(s).

Sheriff Barry Vannatta said the Sheriff’s Office also received a call on Monday morning, June 30th in regards to a break-in at the Mohall Public Library and Thrifty White Drug. According to Sheriff Vannatta, the individual(s) entered through the back door of the Mohall Public Library. They peeled off the strip from the door and then broke the dead bolt lock. From there they got through the gate between the Library and the hallway of the building owned by the City. The bottom of the glass door going into Thrifty White Drug was broken, allowing them to enter into that business. A cabinet was broken into at White Drug, but according to Sheriff Vannatta, they did not take anything from the cabinet, nor was there anything reported missing from the shelves. However, they did manage to get away with approximately $30.00 in cash from the Library.

The Sheriff’s Office is asking that if anyone knows anything in regards to the break-ins or saw anyone out and about during the early hours of that Monday morning, to please contact their office at 756-6386 so that the subject(s) may be prosecuted according to the law. Office hours at the Renville County Sheriff’s Office are 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
