40 years ago May 13, 1982 Jack Knar Named “Businessman of the Month” for May When a parent owns a business, sometimes their children take a special interest in it, learn the ropes, and eventually end up managing the business themselves. This is what happened in the case of Jack Knar, the Stanley Commercial Club’s “Businessman of the Month.

Jack is the owner of Knar Ford Sales, 240 South Broadway. He is a lifelong resident of Stanley, graduating with the Stanley High School Class of 1952. He attended North-West School in Minneapolis for two years and also studied a semester at the UW—Eau Claire.

Student Tells Of Life On ‘Dark Continent’ When he first came to Wis consin, Justin Kitonga expected to see cowboys, horses, and six shooters.

That was the impression of American the young African college student from Nairobi, Kenya, had gotten from books he read and the movies he had seen.

Kitonga, a student at Eau Claire State College, spoke before a group of about 150 at the father-son banquet held Saturday evening at Our Savior’s Lutheran church.

He related other impressions of America too,. But most of his talk was aimed at describing his native Africa for his American audience.

Kitonga, who has been in the U.S. 2 ½ years and is majoring in social science and economics at Eau Claire, is planning to work in the government service when Kenya receives its independence from Britain a few years hence. His admitted objective while here is to learn as many things as possible which may benefit his country, then return home and put his knowledge into practice.

The son of a native minister in the African Inland (Protestant interdenominational) church, Kitonga pointed out that church services are conducted in the various tribal languages, of which there are 70 in Kenya alone, rather than in English. English is spoken mostly by younger people, who start learning it while in second or third grade.

Church Addition to be dedicated Sunday Four events will mark the dedication Sunday of the newly enlarged and remodeled Epiphany Lutheran church on the city’s south side.

At three 0’clock Sunday afternoon, a special “dedication service of praise and thanksgiving” is scheduled, to be followed at 4:15 by an open house and a buuet lunch.

The Rev. F. G. Sprengler of Dorchester, a former pastor at Epiphany Lutheran will be the guest speaker at the 3:00 service.
