Steve and Linda Roggenbuck Street • Ortonville, Minnesota 56278 839-2255 Toll Free 888-819-2255 New look coming for Sodak plates South Dakota state's vehicle license plates are taking on a slightly differ.ent look. Instead of having raised numbers and letters, the plates being produced now are fiat and the lettering is slightly larger. The change is the result of new technology and equipment. Deb Hillmer, director of the state Division of Motor Vehicles said the old license plate manufacturing machine at the state prison was outdated and difficult to maintain. The state will spend about $1.3 million over a five-year period to pay for the new equipment. The new machine began producing some of the state's specialized plates last year and now is being used for the more common plates. They began showing up in the past month on newly purchased vehicles. Hillmer said she believes most states will move toward a fiat plate as their platemaking machines age. She said more than a half-dozen states use the technology now. The color scheme and design of the plate remain the same. The state plans to issue a new design in 2006. Post prom meet set for Oct. 1st There will be a post prom meeting for all OHS Junior and Senior parents on Oct. 1st in the High School commons area. Committees will be formed and decisions about entertainment will be made so please try to attend. Prom 2004 will be held April 24th. If anyone has any questions please give Mona Strege a call at 839-2019. Mn/DOT asks farmers to leave standing cornstalks for winter As hot summer temperatures linger and forecasts of little or no rain per- sist, Minnesotans may find it difficult to think of winter, let alone prepare for it. The Minnesota Department of Transportation, however, encourages farmers to leave standing cornstalks in their fields this fall to minimize the amount of blowing snow across rural highways this winter. Mn/DOT will pay $1.50 more than the current bushel price. This price averages to be approximately $3.50 per bushel, but could vary depending upon the market in a specific area. Mn/DOT uses these cornstalks as snow fences to reduce snowdrifts on areas known for having consistent blowing and drifting problems. Each year there is an average of eight fatal- tries and 284 injury crashes due to drifting snow on highways. "One snow fence is capable of cap- turing 11,880 tons of snow, which increases safety by improving driver visibility and minimizing the chance of ice tbrming on the pavement," said Dan Gullickson, Mn/DOT's living snow fence coordinator. "It also decreases labor, equipment and mate- rial costs normally spent removing wind-blown snow off highways." Last year there were 46 living snow fence sites in the state covering 69 acres of farmland and 20,8 miles of roadway. "As a representative of the farm community and as the transportation commissioner, I see this is a wonder- ful opportunity for Mn/DOT and the farmers of Minnesota to partner in this effort to keep our roads safe," said Lt. Governor/Commissioner Carol Molnau. An effective living snow fence is one-quarter-mile long, 40-feet wide and sits 120 to 240 feet from the high- way. Anyone interested in the living snow fence program in the Detroit Lakes area should contact Dennis Redig at 218-847-1575. In the Morris area please call Dean Olson at 320- 589-7303. Robert (Bob) Rothi to celebrate 80th An open house celebration for the 80th birthday of Bob Rothi will be held Sunday, Sept. 28th at First English Lutheran Church from 1:30-4 p.m. Come, have a cup of coffee with Bob! No gifts please. Pain, stiffness and limited range of motion are often associated with neck (cervical spine) problems. Other common symptoms related to this area are headaches, dizziness, arm pain and numbness. The neck has seven vertebrae with nerves that pass between them. Strain from overuse, stress, poor pos- ture or trauma can cause malalignment which reduces movement of the vertebrae and results in inflammation. A thorough examination can detect the site of trouble and lead to corrective treatment. It is important to note that studies on treatment of neck problems find spinal manipulation to be i , f safe when compared to other common treatments.
