RETOLD OLD NEWS

Mount Ayr Record-News
Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa
Thursday, November 17, 1966

by Chanse Hall, Mount Ayr Record-News

Mrs. Larry Kimble, Mount Ayr, was released from Ringgold county hospital for injuries she received Saturday when her car went out of control north of Grant City.

Bidding was brisk and bargains few at the Methodist God's portion sale held at the Mount Ayr Sale Barn Friday night. The grand total for the sale was $1,635.21.

Ordered to report for induction into the armed services by the Ringgold county local board of the selective service system are three registrants: Ronald E. Bolinger, Thomas C. Hersey and married registrant, Garry P. Wion.

Trapping fur bearing animals isn't what it was a generation and a half ago, according to Dean Jacobs, who started in business in 1921 in the same building he occupies today on the south side of the square in Mount Ayr. In those days when car heaters and closed cars were still far from being what they are today, trapping was widespread in this area. Wild mink, civet cat, skunk, muskrat and raccoon pelts were in demand and brought good prices.
