I n area From the files ot the Ortonvi|ie Independent THIS OLD TIME PHOTO was recently reprinted in the St. Paul Pioneer Press under the heading "The lit-' fie treasures." The cutline below photo read as follows..."Writes Grampa Vince of Moonlight Bay: This photo was taken on Ortonville's main street. The truck is a 1,931 Model B Ford pickup, driven by my dad, who at the time was owner of the Pioni~er Meat Market. Perhaps it was the Cornfest celebration. Look closely. Everybody in the crowd is laughing. They see what we can't see: One of the boys on the truck lifts up a small dog and places it in a replica of a sausage machine. When the dog disappears, the other boy cranks a han- dle - and out spews a string of wieners! They move down the street and repeat the performance. Can you imagine a mother trying to persuade her kid to eat a hot dog after seeing that spectacle?" The clipping was submitted by Wayne Benshoof. See Jim's Odds & Ends column for more info.

Kathy Pederson of the Minnesota State Patrol Dear Trooper Kathy: I got stopped last week for only going five miles per hour over tile speed limit. Don't you guys have something better to do? They drive a lot faster than that in the metro area! Trooper Kathy Says: I know you are going to hate my answer, however. here it is. The speed limit is the posted limit. You do not "get 5" or "10" miles an hour leeway. People who speed in Metro area also get speeding tickets! Speeding is the NUMBER ONE cause of traffic deaths in Minnesota. Law Enforcement agencies have started another special federally funded project called HEAT. "'H EAT" is a Speed and aggressive driving enforcement project Throughout 2010. around 50 Minnesota law enforcement agencies will accelerate speed patrols to stop speeding and aggressive drivers. This effort will also target aggresszve drivers tailgating, running lights. changing lanes abruptly, etc. It's those motorists who need to understand that the road does not belong to them only. Illegal or unsafe speed is a leading contributing factor in fatal crashes. In the last three-year period In Minnesota, speed contributed to 325 fatalities illegal or unsafe gpeed was cited in 54 percent of all alcohol-related fatal crashes. 67 percent of the speed-related fatal crashes occurred in rural areas 54 percent of rural fatal crashes occurred on state trunk and county state aid highways. When the temperatures increase, so do motorists' speeds warm-weather months are the deadliest time on Minnesota roads and speeding is a major factor for this. I have a few catchy phrases you may think about: Minnesota law enforcement agencies will increase speed patrols to put the brakes on speeding drivers.. The only place speeding will get you faster is to the shoulder of the road. If you have a lead foot. be ready for a heavy fine. Costs of speeding violations vary by county, but typically cost more than$120 for traveling 10 mph over the limit. Motorists stopped at 20 mph over t les Item ;3OO "lhx l), Guaranteed the speed limit face doable the fine Those ticketed traveling more than 100 mph can lose their license for six months. No matter how many motorists are speeding, it doesn't make it legal or safe. Remember. obey the sign or pay the fine. Motorists need to understand that speeding is not an innocent activity. When you speed, you have greater potential to lose control of your vehicle: it takes longer to stop. Speeding and aggressive driving often stems from the motorist's mindset that the road belongs to them only, and evervone else is in their way. Drivers need to realistically anticipate travel times and allow the time necessary to arrive to your destination safely and on time. If you have any questions regarding traffic safety and/or traffic laws. please email her at kathy.pederson @ Sgt. Pederson will not offer advice on specific situations or real events, which involve law enforcement. fledd on the Gait ! 1st Love, Cod,/, Levi, Aved, Moll[ and Your Family : iiii!iil iiii~ ::.:::::::.:. .... :::::.::::: ======================================== :MONTHLY SERVICE S,:,AND; :::: ::.::::::.:+:,.., ,..:,:. + :::.:.::.:/4::- Peter Reynen, MD Nanci Van Peursem, MD Crispin Webb, MD Kanya Vanadurongvan, MD Vichit Vanadurongva& MD Terry Seeman, MD Brenda Holscher, PA-C Patrick Dreis, PA-C Peggy Schuelke, CNP Susan Leddy, CNP Milbank Area Avere Waubay Clinic Avera Big Stone City Clinic Revillo Clinic Avera Avera Wilmot Clinic Hospital Avera At Avera Milbank Medical Center and Milbank Area Hospital Avera, we're making a.positive impact on the lives and health of our community.
