He fractured his cheek bone around the eye socket, fractured one vertebrae in his back and fractured his pelvis. He has undergone surgery on his face and back. Though he didn't need surgery on his pelvis, which is expected to heal over time, he is suf- fering some nerve pain in the pelvic region, which he has been able to control through medication.

Darin will probably not be able to work at his winter job this year at Syngenta Seed in Danvers, where he Letters to the editor I would like to thank every one who came out and voted in the election. To Burr Letrud for an honorably run campaign and to you the voters, your support and words of encouragement have been awesome but at the same time extremely humbling, when I consider the challenges and tasks that face us in the future. I I am ready to go to work as your LqP County District 2 Commissioner. Prepared and paid for by the candidate on his own behalf. To the Editor: Ever notice the "unfairness" of the editorial advantages of owning a newspaper? Or that of the law enforcement-referencing the Odds and Ends in the Oct. 12 issue? Unfairness is going to be in place as long as individuals are that, individuals with differences of opinions and religions- if we all spoke the same language and had no prejudice perhaps fairness would be equal. It's interesting that I was raised in "rural" communities and now live in the "metro" for over 25 years and realize there ARE options to drive faster...however I have received two speeding tickets in the "rural" area- officers doing their job-AND one speeding ticket in the metro were the officer claimed to clock me yet the cars in the left lane-on Minnehaha blvd were passing me, why did I get stopped? I had a witness in the car however due to long waiting lines and my witnesses unable to secure the time off work to attend court with me, etc. I chose to pay the ticket-therefore admitting I was guilty (fairness?). In all three instances, the officers checked my license and not one of the officers informed me that my license plate was registered to that of a Jeep Cherokee-I drive a Chevy Impala- therefore noting that I was in their mind "driving a stolen vehicle!". Recently, in the metro, I was stopped on a Saturday night by an officer stating my drivers license light was burned out...he issued me a fix it ticket. One week later a metro area officer stopped me again-stating "stay in your car maam-I believe you are driving a stolen vehicle!". Treated like a criminal until proven innocent. Both of these incidents occurred between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m.; in that I work as a server for weddings and drive home late at night, going the speed limit, in Meetings ALANON MEETINGS every Tuesday, 6:30-7:30 p.m., Ortonville Senior Citizen Center (use side entrance).

The truth being they perhaps thought they were following a DUI incident, therefore reaching a higher quota. The fact that the dealership where I bought my car three years ago, had issued me the wrong plate on my vehicle and this had never been caught by any of the officers floored me! The dealership took responsibility and bought me a new license plate etc. Have I learned a lesson? Fairness in our system? PLEASE[ We all have a job to do and are trained to support that job, be it law enforcement,' football, baseball, bartender/server or newspaper editor but the opportunity to voice our opinion is often prompted by situations that in "our minds" are fair or unfair. Kathy Soboleski Excelsior Funds raised for Guatemala mission Nearly $1,000 was raised during a pork feed on Friday, Oct. 8 for the San Lucas Mission in Guatemala. Big Stone Therapies, Incl has provided outreach therapy services during mis- sion trips there twice a year for the past four years. The San Lucas Mission and sur- rounding area suffered serious dam- age during Tropical Storm Agatha last May. Massive mud slides, torrential rain damage, and flooding caused major destruction. Also devastated were the coffee bean crops. The mission relies on funds from cof- fee sales to operate. The eighth mission group returned from Guatemala recently. During the week-long mission trip, therapists provided rehabilitation services to more than 40 men, women, and chil- dren at the San Lucas Mission.

' LETTERS POLICY Letters to the editor discussing com- munity issues are encouraged. Letter writers should be aware that The Independent reserves the right to edit and/or condense letters for print. The paper also reserves the right not to pub- lish letters that are unsuitable or for which it might be held legally liable. Letters should contain the writer's printed or typed name, signature, address and telephone number. Addresses and telephone numbers will not be published. Letter writers are asked to limit them- selves to one letter per month. Please keep letter brief, perferably not over 350 words, and to the point. AD vs. NEWS The Ortonville Independent policy in determining what is advertising and what is news is based on one simple test: If an individual business or organi- zation charges for admission to an event, for an item or for a service, it will be con- sidered advertising. In other words, "If you charge, we charge." Advertising is the life-blood of a news- paper. Without it a newspaper would cease to exist. The money a paper receives for subscriptions and single paper sales is used to pay for the ink and paper used in producing the product. It no longer does so because of paper cost increases. It still covers the cost of ink and a small portion of the paper used. Advertising to' a newspaper is like crops and livestock to farmers; meat and products to the grocer; dresses and coats to the soft-line merchant; and plows and tractors to the implement dealer. Without any of those items, the particular busi- ness woldd not be in business. ADS: We reserve the right to refuse any advertising without obligation to justify our decision. POLICIES: News: Our goal is to report the news as fully and accurately as possible. The staff's opinions will appear only on the opinion page. A Editorials: Opinions published on this page, whether locally written or reprinted from other sources is intended to stimu- late thinking and discussion among our readers.
