Vince Peterson’s Christmas display auction on Sunday, Nov. 22 was labeled a success.

“It went real good,” said Peterson. “We had a big crowd. It was real nice. It’s just about all gone.”

Peterson didn’t know an exact total, but figured around $6,000 was raised, half donated to Trinity Lutheran Church and half to the New Richland Area Fund. Auctioneer Tracy Holland donated his services, assisted by Tom Peterson.

A total of 55 bidders were registered for the auction and upwards of 100 attended. At least one area television station was there.

Peterson said many of the items will remain in the area.

“They did a real good job,” said Peterson. “I’d just like to say thank you on behalf of our family.”

Bohlen finally achieves perfection on the bowling lanes


FAMILY AFFAIR — Bowling has definitely been a family activity for Rick Bohlen of rural New Richland, who rolled his first 300 game Nov. 16 at Trapper’s Lanes. (Star Eagle photo by Jim Lutgens)



Nobody’s perfect, of course, but on one night, for one shining moment, Rick Bohlen of rural New Richland was exactly that.

Bohlen, 55, finally bowled an elusive 300 game, hitting 12 consecutive strikes Monday, Nov. 16 during league competition at Trapper’s Lanes in New Richland.

It was the first of a three-game 710 series for Bohlen, who followed the perfecto with games of 217 and 193, and it was a long time coming for someone who started bowling more than 50 years ago when his father, Merlin, owned the bowling alley then known as Bohlen’s Lanes.

“I think it was kind of neat it was done here,” said Bohlen, who bowled for many years in Albert Lea before returning to town with his brother, James, to take over their father’s heating and air conditioning business in 2006. “To come back here to do it where we actually grew up and learned how to bowl, it was special.”
