Rural Perham murder: Pipe wrench reportedly used in brutal killing of mother, son

LETTER TO EDITOR: Clarification on Karvonen donation

To the editor:

I would like to point out the error in the article in The Focus that said: "There has also been a handful of large contributors such as Harley Karvonen who has 'pledged' $10,000." I want to correct this to say Harley Karvonen paid that amount with check no. 5184 on February 28, 2009.

In the 21 years I spent in southern Texas, I saw three cities build skateboard parks. One of them gave me their plans, which I gave to Boedigheimer, who never seemed interested in a park. I also obtained a VCR tape of a park and also pictures of what goes on the concrete slab. This was passed around to the park board, and which must be somewhere around the community even now.
