Christmas crafter: Waubun native spends his days at The Cottages in Detroit Lakes making holiday decorations
From Army serviceman to over-the-road trucker to bulk oil dealer to rural mail carrier, Waubun native Herb Ahles has had a variety of careers.
"I've had a pretty busy life," he says. "I've been a part-time policeman, part-time deputy sheriff, part-time farmer... I drove school buses, and I was a (volunteer) fireman for 24½ years."
At the age of 19, Herb enlisted in the U.S. Army, where he spent the next two years on active duty.
