Mrs. Albert Johnsen, will leave Thursday for New York City to embark on "The Batory", for a four months visit in her native country, Denmark, which she has not seen in thirty-five years. Mrs. Johnsen plans to return home January 6th. Her daughter, Mrs. Joseph Powers, and Mr. Powers will accompany her to New York.
Pen Yan Courier, Thursday September 11th, 1947.
Mrs. Albert Johnsen Returns From Denmark. Two pounds of flour per person per month and one-half pound of coffee per person per month are two of the items of rationing which the residents of Denmark find the most difficult to bear according to Mrs. Albert Johnsen, who returned December 7th from a three months' trip to the place of her birth, Fredenkshavn, Denmark.
Rationing stamps must be used by restaurant patrons desiring bread, and children under six years of age are the only ones permitted stamps for cocoa. Coal is very scarce, and the Danish people now are burning peat which is plentiful this year because of the excessively dry season. Many peat bogs exist in Denmark and this type of fuel helps to relieve the shortage of coal. Plenty of other shortages exist in Denmark, according to Mrs. Johnsen, but the flour, coffee and coal situations are most burdensome.
Intending to remain in Denmark for several more weeks, Mrs. Johnsen became a bit homesick and returned sooner than planned. Returning after a 33-year absence, she visited brothers and sisters. In spite of all the discomforts and disadvantages occasioned by the post-war situation, the Danish people are happy and optimistic, she says.

Dødsfald: Farmer Carl Albert Johansen, Penn Yan, New York, døde den 22. juli 1969 efter nogen tids sygdom, næsten 85 år gammel.
Carl Albert Johansen stammede fra Tolne og udvandrede som 22-årig i 1908 til USA. Han giftede sig med en frederikshavnerpige Karen (Mathilde!) Blokhus, og det unge par arbejdede sig dygtigt frem i Amerika, hvor de begyndte med en lille farm. I de senere år drev Johansen så stor en farm, at han til maskinhjælp alene havde otte traktorer. Johansen var i 1913 på besøg i Frederikshavn, og han glemte i det hele taget aldrig sit gamle land eller sin familie, som han trofast stod i forbindelse med. I sit sidste brev hjem til familien udtrykte han ønske om, at han kunne blive så rask, at han kunne rejse til Danmark en tur. For en halv snes år siden mistede han sin hustru, og han efterlader sig tre døtre. I de sidste år, da han var ramt af sygdom, boede han hos den yngste datter, der er sygeplejerske.

Geneva Daily Times, Wednesday, March 7th, 1951
Joe Power Closes business after 25 Years. "Mom can I go downtown to Joe Power's store," will no longer be the question that kids will ask their parents in Penn Yan because after 25 years the man who operated the candy, tobacco, magazines and newspaper store will no longer be there behind the counter to greet them.
Joseph Powers, a native of Penn Yan, has operated his store on the Four Corners in Penn Yan and has seen kids grow up to graduate from high school and enter the Armed Services to fight a war. He opened for business in a store adjacent to the Knapp Hotel at the intersection of Main and Water Streets. The next year, 1947, Powers had the chance to purchase the former Smoke Shop.
The Smoke Shop had a long history of serving the public and had been owned and operated by the late Percy Griffiths before Calarco purchased it from the Griffiths estate.
Powers said, "It has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my business career to have served the public over these 25 years and feel you are going to be missed." He went on to tell of an incident that had occurred several Sundays ago involving two young girls between the ages of five and six. "They had come in to buy some candy and as I put it into a paper bag one of the girls handed me a bouquet of violets. One just cannot help but become emotional over such a kind gesture."
He explained how he remodeled the store soon after purchasing it and putting in a display of Rustcraft and Ambassador greeting cards. 'The only display in the store was two homemade ones. After remodeling we had a display that took up the entire south side of the store and one that I considered to be the finest in the village. It contained 1,200 different types of greeting cards."
Powers said in the 25 years he had been in business he had come to know the people who reside along Keuka Lake during the summer months. "You look for these people to come back every year and when they don't you wonder what may have happened." He continued, "Through all these years I found it to be a pleasure to serve the public, an experience one does not forget. And all this time, I found the people friendly and gracious for anything I could do for the Tourists would stop in to buy a newspaper and ask how to get to a certain place. All these things make a person humble and grateful for the support of the public."
Powers sold his business to Roland C. Smith of Penn Yan known throughout the area as Smitty. He has moved the merchandise just one store below the former location in order to make way for the expansion of Pinckney's Hardware located at the intersection of Main and Elm Streets. "I hope the people will continue their patronage even though I will not be there as I am sure Smitty will give the public the same kind of service as I have over the past quarter of a century," Powers added.
Powers said he did not intend to go into full retirement but will occupy himself as an employee during the summer months at the Keuka Lake State Park at Branchport. "I will enjoy being out in the open air something I have missed in the past 25 years."
Powers lives at 119 Burns Terrace in Penn Yan and is married to the former Ann Johnson. They are the parents of three daughters and a son.

Linda Borglum From Yates At 4-H Congress
Among the 32 nominees to represent their counties to National 4-H Club Congress in Chicago, will be Linda Borglum from Yates County who is the New York State 4-H representative to the National Citizenship Program. She is a member and junior leader of the Benton Merry Makers 4-H Club.
This program recognizes 4-H Club members who participate in community and civic affairs and good citizenship work and thereby increases the interest, understanding and knowledge of the responsibilities of a citizen.
To quote Linda, "4-H teaches many lessons. My church claims a lot of time; I try to serve willingly. I am the church organist, an officer in my youth group; in school I try to obtain the best marks I can without eliminating all my activities. The more involved I become in 4-H, church and school, the more I learn. In any organization, you have to give before you can expect to receive any results. This is especially true for 4-H work and that's why it is so valuable."
Linda Borglum will attend the National 4-H Club Congress from November 28 to December 2 in Chicago with all expenses paid.

The "good old days"
Do you remember when slender bottles of milk froze on the back doorstop so that the cream popped from the top of the bottle like rounded Ice "creamsicles"?
Do you recall when farmland was worked with teams of horses instead of 100 horse-powered tractors?
One almost cannot talk of the present or think of the future without recalling times past.
Greger Borglum of Perm Yan knows what farming was like in the "good old days."
Back in the 1930s Greger Borglum worked for a dollar a day and furnished his own board.
"Things have certainly changed since I was a boy working on a farm," the 57-year-old Yates County farmer recalls. "Those were hard times."
But good times outweigh the bad in the years since 1941 when Borglum came into farming with his father-in-law. Greger and his wife, Elsie, agree unequivocally, that the farm life has been a good one and the farm, "the best place" to raise their six children.
Borglum came to Yates County as a young boy, with his family, just before the Depression years.
The second of seven children, he remembers the Depression clearly. The children, he said, were quite aware of the hardship and all worked together to keep the farm going.
"Farmers have always been considered thrifty and conserving. In those days people did without much more than what people would think of doing without today," Borglum noted.'
Electricity came to his father's farm in 1937. "For quite a while the only thing we had electrical was lights, then a radio," he said. "That's when we got acquainted with 'Amos and Andy.'"
In the latter part of the 1930s tractor sales began making headway, according to Borglum, and in 1937 the Borglum farm had its first tractor.
"I guess those are the times referred to when we speak of the good old days. Everybody talks about them, but nobody wants to go back." he said.
The Yates County farmer says that following World War II it required much more capital to get started in farming. Also at that time the farming picture began changing considerably; automation began taking over and the farm was able to handle more.
Farming, once a way of life for the family and a means for providing for the family's needs, Borglum pointed out, has become much like any other business. The modem farmer is a specialist and a manager, and some do not even have a vegetable garden.
