IHarlan IA Ntws_Ad I Ffi. morn., Di.8,. t,. Editorial Notebook I Shop talk Perhaps our readers have noticed we&apos;ve had more news features since last summer when we increased our staff with the addition of Lynette l-lansen, assistant news editor. Lynette gradu- ated in May from Midland College of Fremont, NE. Her hometown is Ithaca, NE. LYNETTE HANSEN ON OUR STAFF now, we have six graduates from lowa State University, four from Univ. of lowa, two from Iowa Lakes Community College, and one each from Univ. of Nebraska-Omaha and Midland Lutheran College. Total staff now numbers 22 full-tlme and six part-time. A BIG DIFFERENCE in the Harlan Newspapers over other weekly newspapers is the publishing of obituaries. Many papers only publish those deaths within their county. We go far and wide with such life stories, run- ning many about persons who have left the county but are natives of Shelby county. We believe our readers like that feature. IN ADDITION to printing the two Harlan Newspapers and PennySaver, we are also printing the newspapers for towns: Adair, Anita, Elk Horn, Walnut, Avoca, Dunlap, Ida Grove, Manilla, and Manning. On Monday nights, we print the Rocket which is inserted into 15 publications that circulate in 26,000 homes in 18 counties. A sign of the times: Be careful to shoot your deer and not someone else's dear. Bravo, Governor Governor Branstad has told reporters he is against waiving the better limits in Iowa to accommodate the proposed 67 mil- lion casino and hotel in Council Bluffs. Branstad told reporters that Iowans don't want Las Vegas- style casino gambling and suggested that public opinion has begun to turn against gambling. "I believe that there is pretty broad-based support for certain types of gambling, and the Legislature has responded to that public interest and support for gambling," the governor said. "I, however, believe that public sentiment is starting to swing and people recognize that a lot of gambling has been legalized in recent years." After saying last week that he would not agree to high- stakes betting at the facility, the governor Monday said he also does not support the purchase of Iowa land by a tribe outside the state that wants to take advantage of Iowa's 1989 law legal- [zing floating casinos. Now, if the governor and the Iowa Legislature stick to there guns, we can avoid future Iowa problems. Enough is enough. Iowa surely has enough gambling. As usual, a rumor that is not true No one knows how rumors get started but they do, and most of them are not true. The latest untrue rumor Is that the Knight Bakery and the Coffee Shop are closing Jan. 1. Owners of those firms say that is not true - they are not closing! A destructive promotion How not to support your home town Is what hap- pened In Harlan the weekend of Dec. 3. Target store In the Bluffs Mall sent a bus to the Senior Citizen center In Harlan on a Sunday night. They took 34 seniors to the mall, opened the store after it had closed Its doors at 6 p.m. The shopping spree lasted,until 9 p.m., when the bus returned to Harlan. On the surface, this sounds like fun. But what can happen eventually, unless people stop and think, is that you will eventually lose your hometown stores, slowly and surely and Jobs are gone. You end up having no local stores to shop in... a dead town. Target and the Mall do nothing towards supporting the Senior Citizen Center here in Harlan. Why should we take part in such organized wholesale out-of-town shopping sprees? It Is self-destructive. Pet omens Omens - we all have our pet ones. Here are some maybe you do not have: Fuzzy caterpillars are omens of a perilous winter. Cattle backing up to fences foretell of dreadful snows. Don't tangle with westbound rain. Rains can deluge westbound lanes and never dampen the eastbound side. Red skies In the morning - sailors take warning. Red skies at night, sailors delight, good winds. If the crickets sing in the chimney, winter will be long and harsh.

Petersen, 33, Harlan, has been charged with a third count of indecent expo- sure, this one stemming from an alleged incident in December, 1987. A complaint issued by the Harlan Police Department claims that Petersen allegedly exposed himself to a 30-year- old Harlan female at the S&S Store in Harlan on or near Dec. 13, 1987.
