Lehmann reports good news for residents of Lac qui Parle County. She said the USDA announced that a ~ublic/private partnership applica- tion to the Recovery Act Broadband Infrastructure program has been approved for a collaborative effort to spread fiber optic Intemet service to all of Lac qui Parle County. This $9.6 Million loan/grant was approved to bring FTTP (Fiber-to-the- Premise) technology to residents and businesses in Lac qui Parle County. During Phase I of this project, the network will make Lac qui Parle one of the leading technology counties in the state. More than 3,700 people stand to benefit, as- do roughly 165 businesses and 12 community institu- tions. This project is a collaboration between Farmers Mutual Telephone and Lac qui Parle County and will directly support 110 jobs upfront and will also drive economic development and create jobs for decades to come ! This is Phase I of a Two Phase project to spread fiber optic service to everyone in this small rural county. Phase Two will be completed by Farmers Mutual Telephone after all of the grant/loan funds have been expended and will finish spreading fiber optic technology to the remain- ing residents and businesses in the county. The L.T.D. Motorcycle Memorial Tour was a huge success! THANK YOU! To al riders and supporters which resulted in over 550 bikes and over 840 riders. When we include all the helpers and people whom attended the live band in support of LTD the numbers were well over 1,000 people. The bikes were stretched out for 7 miles during this year's event, it was a sight to see. Many people throughout the day made many comments, but out of those comments here was the most important one that was said numerous times. "This was an awesome ride with so much support from all of the communities and the military." Many riders commented that they had wet eyes numerous times throughout the ride because of the undying support from everyone in West Central Minnesota. There was not one town traveled through that didn't have people outside watch- ing with flags and signs in hand. In Memory of SGT Jesse Lhotka, 1LT Jason Timmerman, SSG David Day, dders came from as far as Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota,. 10wa, Wisconsin. We the L.T.D Board members cannot thank the riders and communities enough for all they do every year to help us ensure the families of these three soldiers that we will never forget the sacrifice that their, sons have made for us. The sacrifice that they made is what everyone reflects on and remembers throughout the day and we the people and organizations need to always remember why we have this ride and what the meaning of this ride stands for. The L.T.D. Ride was created for that simple fact. Thanks to each and every one of you whom took part in this day and event. THANK YOU'S Board Members: Sco{-t Koenen, Bob Turner. Ann Hanson.
