'Boot or Salute'

AJ's fall display drew a "salute" from a local resident. (Contributed)

Fall display/old TV

Salute/Boot: An Osakis resident sends a "salute" to AJ's Restaurant for its nice fall display. The same resident also sent a "boot" to the person who left an old TV on the corner of Nokomis and First Avenue West. This goes to show that people do take notice of what looks good in the town and what does not.
