Towing the car

We had car issues last weekend. Namely one of the kid?Äôs cars wouldn?Äôt start. This obviously became a problem for my husband and me ?Äì mostly my husband, but I attempt to support him in these family matters.

Since the car has been sitting unused for some time, we thought (hoped) maybe the problem stemmed from a dead battery requiring a simple jump-start. My husband hooked up the red and black cables and I stood nearby, supervising.

The car clicked, but didn?Äôt start.

Letter from Marcia Mahlum

Dear Kimball community,

I moved to Kimball to provide a small-town experience for my children, similar to what I had growing up in southwest Minnesota. 

What has impressed me most about Kimball is the commitment to remain a small and connected community where people know and support one another. 

Nov. 3, we will be called to once again support our community with the upcoming vote on the school levy and bond. Items up for vote will allow us to maximize state aid for operating costs; bring back programs that were once cut; and upgrade our science, technology and trades for our students. Additional items up for vote will provide facilities to gather our community and nurture lifelong habits of wellness.
