Rain causes work setback on Hwy 6/7th Street project in Atlantic


June 16th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

The recent, heavy rainfall here in Atlantic has affected many projects, not the least of which is the Highway 6/7th Street reconstruction project. Iowa Dept. of Transportation District 4 Planning Director Scott Suhr said today (Tuesday), the rain has set back progress by about four or five days. Once the weather cooperates, crews will resume hauling dirt. On the bright side, Suhr says the Spruce and Pine street sanitary sewer portion of the project have been completed.

Hamburger Pie (6-16-2015)

Mom's Tips

June 16th, 2015 by Jim Field

  • 2 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • several dashes black pepper
  • 5 cups frozen cut green beans, thawed
  • 2 (10.75 oz.) cans condensed tomato soup
  • 2 (24 oz.) packages refrigerated mashed potatoes
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) shredded processed American cheese

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease two 2-quart rectangular baking dishes; set aside.  In an extra-large skillet, cook meat and onion until meat is brown and onion is tender, stirring to break up meat.  Drain off fat.  Add the salt and pepper.  Stir in beans and soup.  Divide mixture between prepared baking dishes.

2.  Spoon potatoes in mounds on top of bean mixture (or, if desired, pipe potatoes using a pastry bag and a large star tip).  Sprinkle cheese over the potatoes.

3.  Bake, uncovered, for 30 to 35 minutes or until mixture is bubbly and cheese begins to brown.

Makes 12 servings.
