The contest was part of Saturday's "Norsefest Evening of Entertainment" at the Prairie Arts Center. Osteraas battled four others for the title, including Duane Schuette of Plato, the defending champion; Les Holtan of North St. Paul, a member of the United States Olympic Lutefisk Eating Team; James Johnson of Sacred Heart and Charles Hettling of Minneota. Richard Simonson of Madison was the lone contestant in the walleye division, with three competing in the guppie division, including Kathy Lindberg, Dan Larson and Rick .Cil. Lindberg won this division. In the "whale" division, all five contestants ate three pounds, with Johnson opting to drop out.

APPLETON-CCA/Prairie Correctional Facility in Appleton was recently recommended for accreditation by American Corrections Association (ADA) during a recent audit of the facility. After reviewing CCA's Prairie Correctional Facility, ACA auditors found the facility to be 100 percent in compliance with all mandatory standards and 99.3 percent in compliance with all non-mandatory standards. The ACA sets standards of excellence for correctional institutions, including their management and personnel procedures, physical layout, training programs and delivery of services. Prairie Correction's Warden Hoyt Brill attributes the audit success to the teamwork of the facility staff. "The facility's superior scores are indicative of the staff's professionalism and commitment to excellence. We are very proud of bur team,". Warden Brill said.

New immunization requirements New legislation will affect stu- dents .entering seventh and 12th grades this fall. Parents should take note of a change in Minnesota's school immunization law made by the Legislature in April. The new law requires that students in grades seven through 12 receive one shot for tetanus and diphtheria (known as a Td booster) after they are 11 years of age; however, this require- ment will be phased-in over the next few years. During the 1998-99 school year, only seventh and 12th grade stu- dents must show that they have received a Td booster. This means they must bring a shot record to school at the start of the school year (no later than Jan. 1, 1999). This new requirement is, in part, a result of concerns about the diphtheria epidemic in the former Soviet Union. Nearly 100,000 cases if diphtheria.
