This spring the north half of the former John Mahle bar (east side of Main St.) was torn down. The south half of the building has been remodeled into a garage/shop for Mike Borgen to store motorcycles, snow blowers, other outdoor equipment and a shop. Mike purchased the building from Kevin Hornerman several years ago.
He also resided the front and south side of his house (formerly Schmaltz Beauty Shop) and added a large porch to his entrance in the alley.
The front of the shop will be resided to match his house and the inside sheet-rocked.
Mike still has about 50 pigeons and is looking for someone to race against them. Starting October he will need someone to work about 10 hours a week to care for the pidgeons, shoveling, and occassional grass cutting at $12 an hour. If interested call Mike Borgen at 701-465-3552.
