Then and now

New gas pumps at Biegler’s Timber Lake Service provided an opportunity for these “then and now” photos. AT LEFT is Dr. F.M. McClellan proudly showing off his prize catch in front of what was then the Timber Lake Standard Station. McClellan came to Isabel in 1916 and to Timber Lake in 1918 and set up his dental practice there. He was instrumental is establishing the Little Moreau Park and served on the city council. His descendants, Dr. Herb McClellan Sr., Dr. Herb McClellan Jr., and Dr. Marc McClellan, continued the dental practice at Mobridge. The other photo is David Biegler in the same location — about 75 years later — showing off his shiny new gas pumps. Dave didn’t catch the fish (It’s borrowed from the Mettlers) and he doesn’t smoke cigarettes (But he does sell them).

Father, son meet for first time

By Kathy Nelson

Zane Arpan of Eagle Butte never knew he had a Vietnamese son, but My Tran, who lives in Oklahoma City with his wife and two children, always knew he had an American father. The two met last week, just a few days before Father’s Day, thanks to the wonders of DNA. On the evening of August 29, 2017, Cheryl Maxwell Randall, a second cousin of Zane’s, got a

“hit” on her AncestryDNA account. My Tran, someone she had never heard of, was a close match for her on the Claymore branch of her family tree. My Tran told Cheryl he was born in Vietnam in 1968, had been living in Oklahoma City for more than 20 years, and had recently sent his saliva sample to AncestryDNA in hopes that he could find his American soldier father.

Council would like to change form of city government

By Kathy Nelson

 

The Timber Lake City Council appointed Tim Gunderson as mayor Monday night, acting on the advice of their attorney, Eric Bogue, to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Clyde Pfeifle last month. Council chairman Mike LaCompte had temporarily taken on some mayoral duties but declined when a motion was made to appoint him as mayor. Council members Tom Hermes and Josh Lemburg also declined. Lemburg said he was not willing to give up his vote. (The mayor votes only in the case of a tie.) Gunderson joined the council in January filling a Ward I vacancy. Jess Schlosser had previously resigned his Ward I post so Gunderson’s appointment as mayor leaves two vacancies in Ward I (east of Main Street).
