After 38 years as public official, Nelson is now out
Syd Nelson has spent 38 of his 64 years as an elected public official. That nearly four-decade stint came to an end last week when the incumbent was unseated by challenger Roxann Dagget. For the first time since Dwight Eisenhower was president, Syd Nelson was out of public office. “Actually, I’m doing pretty good,” he said. “It’s kind of funny … my friends and relatives and kids probably feel worse about it than I do. I’m doing pretty good.”

Perham Barbershop now open for business
Wendell Beske has opened Perham Barbershop, in the Huebsch office building on the Highway 78 entrance to town. Beske has been barbering at the Air Force base in Grand Forks, N.D., for the past two years. The new barber realizes that it will take a while to build up the business in his new location, but he’s philosophical about it. “It’s kind of like going fishing,” he said. “You’ve got to find them first, and if you have good luck, then you’ll go back again.”
