A health plan that covers preventive care A great way to keep the cost of health care down is to prevent the costs from happening in the first place. Catching a problem early can stop it from becoming a bigger problem later. Many plans from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota offer first-dollar coverage for preventive care right away without having to pay a deductible. And with all the options available, you can easily find a plan that's right for your budget, Give me a call. I can give you all the details and answer your questions.

You've heard that but when it comes to the possiblity of losing social security income, more taxes and higher costs of living, fear can influence our vote.

Jehovah's Witnesses attend conference The local congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses were among the nearly 1,200 in attendance on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 16 and 17, at the Swiftel Center in Brookings, SD for their annual Circuit Assembly. Attendees from eastern South Dakota and parts of North Dakota and Minnesota were on hand for this spe- cial event. The theme for program was "You Are No Part of the World", taken from John 15:19. Richard Colvin, District Overseer of US District #16 for Jehovah's Witnesses and a representative of the World Headquarters of the Christian Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses in Brooklyn, NY, was the featured speaker for the program, and deliv- ered the public address entitled "Christ's Kingdom is "No Part of the World' and the concluding discourse, "Take Courage! You Can Conquer the World". Jehovah's Witnesses attend such large gatherings three times a year, including a larger convention held during the summer months. PRINTING At Its Finest and At Lowest Prices NO JOB TOO BIG OR TOO SMALL[ The Ortonville Independent Ortonville, MN 320-839-6163 Tile drained fields-peak flows reduced (Edi. note: This is the third of several articles provided by the Upper Minnesota River Watershed District regarding agricultural drainage and tiling. The article is written by Heather Fraser and Ron Flem- ing, P. Eng., Ridgetown Col- lege-University of Guelph. Citation: Fraser, H., Fleming, R. 2001. Environmental Bene- fits of Tile Drainage Literature Review. From: http:/gis.lrs.uogueiph. ca/AgriEnvArchives/bioen- ergy/download/drainage.pdf. Date accessed: April 21, 2010.) Good subsurface drainage signifi- cantly reduces peak flow volumes. Peak flow refers to the greatest amount of flow resulting from the total of sur- face runoff and subsurface drainage. Because increased storage capacity al- lows more water to infiltrate, the soil acts as a buffer for rainfall and spreads the runoff over a longer period of time (Mason and Rost, 1951; Larson et al. 1980). Skaggs and Broadhead (1982) found that conditions prior to precipi- tation affected how well tile drained soil buffered peak flows. By monitor- ing five different storm events, they found that good subsurface drainage significantly reduced peak flows. Sub- surface drainage increases storage ca- pacity in the soil by continually removing water from the soil profile. If the soil was very wet prior to precipi- tation, peak flow was reduced by 20 percent, but when prior conditions were dry, a reduction of up to 87 per- cent was observed. It was also empha- sized that there is an interaction between subsurface and surface drainage. When subsurface drainage was good, improvements to the surface drainage system made little difference to peak flow rates. However, when subsurface drainage was poor, improv- ing the surface drainage increased the peak flows. Natho-Jina et al. (1986) found that peak flows were significantly influ- enced by the soil moisture condition. When soil was dry before a rain event, there was a relatively small amount of tile flow. The water table had been low- ered by the subsurface drainage sys- tem, so there was more space in the soil profile available for storage. They also found that the subsurface flow hydro- graph was flatter and longer compared to the surface runoff hydrograph. How- ever, most of the water removed from the field was from the tile drainage. The Quebec study was completed on a silt-loam soil having a slope of two percent. Larson et al. (1980) also found that soil moisture conditions affected peak flow. When soil moisture levels were low, subsurface drainage produced only small increases (if any) in storm runoff volumes, compared to a surface inlet. However, when soil moisture conditions were high, significant in- creases in storm runoff volume oc- curred from subsurface drainage but the discharges were maintained over a longer period of time. The researchers found that the presence of subsurface drainage produced a significant in- crease in the annual total flow volume (total of surface runoff and subsurface flow), compared to surface drainage only. Konyha et al. (1992) also found that total outflow from the field increased, by 40 mm (10 percent) when compared to surface drainage only. However, the peak runoffrate was reduced from 101 to 28 mrn/day. The volume of surface runoff from the field decreased by 192 mm (66 percent). This modeling study was conducted on well- to poorly- drained Wadasa muck soil in North Carolina. When McLean and Schwab (1982) modeled total run off at a wa- tershed scale, peak flow runoff rate re- ductions of up to 18 percent during the growing season and 11 percent in the non-growing season were seen. The study gathered long term data from 0.2 hectare plots under four different drainage regimes. On average, peak flow rates from the field were reduced by an average of 32 percent, ranging from seven to 77 percent, compared to undrained plots. For storms that pro- duced high rates of surface runoff, peak flow rates were reduced by 50 percent with tile drainage. Istok and K!ing (1983) observed that when tile drainage was installed in a silt loam watershed with slopes rang- ing from 0-15 percent, watershed runoff was reduced by 65 percent and sediment yield was reduced by 55 per- cent. The hydrology of this western Oregon watershed also changed so that the lag time increased - drainage water moved through the watershed more gradually, which is generally desirable. Many of the studies mentioned in this review have been conducted on relatively flat surfaces. Parkinson and Reid (1986) determined that slope plays a large role in the efficiency of tile drainage. The site was a heavy clay soil with slopes ranging from 3.6 to five percent. Drainage efficiency, peak drain discharge and flood lag time all decreased as slope increased - i.e. as more surface runoff occurred.
