wei lin Spring truck weight restrictiofls on state highways began March 14 for Minnesota's South, Southeast and Metro frost zones, according to the Minnesota Department of Transporta- tion. Winter load increases and over- weight permits remain in place for the state's Central, North-Central and North frost zones. MnDOT limits truck weights to pre- vent damage to roads weakened during the spring thaw. Ending dates for spring load restrictions will be estab- lished by monitoring roadway strength as weather conditions change. The South Zone extends south from the southern limit of the Central Zone (US 12 - Hennepin county line) to the Iowa state line and east to the Metro Zone and then a line following and in- cluding Interstate 35. This zone in- cludes Highway 19 along the southern border of Scott County. The Southeast Zone extends south from the southern limit of the Metro ons Zone along, but not including, 1-35 to the Iowa state line and east to the Wis- consin state line. This zone includes Highway 19 along the southern border of Dakota County. The Metro Zone (Minneapolis - St. Paul metro area) includes Anoka, Carver, Chisago, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott and Washington coun- ties. This zone does not include High- way 19 along the southern borders of Scott and Dakota counties. Road restriction maps showing the locations of weight-restricted routes and state highways open to maximum 10-ton axle weights are listed at Click on "Seasonal Load Limits," and then "Spring Load Restrictions" for the most up-to-date information. The information is also available by calling MnDOT's 24-hour automated message center at 1-800-723-6543 in the United States and, Canada or by calling 651-366-5400. PERFORMING THEIR BUCKET DRUMS is the Ortonville fifth graders as they prepared for their concert held last'Friday, March 14. Junior High Vocal Instructor Jennifer Neu wrote a grant through a company called Donors Choose. It is a non-profit organization to support teachers all around the USA. Teachers of all subjects can write a grant.for anything that they may need or wish for in their classroom. A teacher writes a grant about their project, names it, submits it and then if it is funded they_ receive the items. Jennifer wrote this grant back in September for $500 worth of garbage cans and drum sticks. It was called Bucket Drumming 101. The grant was funded by one anonymous donor. Once the grant is funded, the organization only requires that you send thank you notes and a picture of the group using their items. The students gave a great performance on the bucket drums to the song "Just Give Me A Beat". EastHwy12.
