HARTINGTON — The new municipal code book for the city of Hartington is in the final stages of preparation and is expected to be adopted at the Aug. 13 City Council meeting.

Some of the laws that will be taken off of the books are quite interesting, even comical.

Distressing as the thought may be, Mayor Bill Yates will no longer be able to call a posse together when the Hartington City Council adopts the new municipal code book.

At the present time the mayor has the authority to call on every male inhabitant of the city who is over 18 years of age and under the age of 50 years to aid in enforcing the law.

HARTINGTON — The 2007 Cedar County Fair was tagged a success.

“Overall we had a super fair,” said Fair Board co-President Larry Dybdal. “Three out of the four nights we had record crowds. The Sawyer Brown concert, the races and the rodeo were all huge draws to the fair. Fair Board member Allen Heine said he has never seen the grandstand as full as it was on Saturday evening during the performance of Sawyer Brown.

“Sawyer Brown was tops,” said Heine. “Phil Vaught was good — he played both before and after Sawyer Brown. Everyone enjoyed all of the music. It was a good selection.”
