The 13 alcohol- related crashes cost the Ortonville area $1,152,300. The enforcement campaign also poses a threat to chronic drunk drivers with multiple DWI's. In August, Minnesota began enforcing a DWI felony law, which penalizes those with four or more DWI's in a 10-year span. Chronic drunk drivers can face up to a $10,000 fine, seven years in jail, and five years on supervised parole. At the present time in the Ortonville area, there is currently no one arrested nor pending cases related to this new law. It's truly sad that some people in the Ononville area haven't figured out another way to get home other that getting behind the wheel. We can't wait to meet them and get them off of the road. The Ortonville Police Department is urging everyone to use alternative transportation to avoid driving drunk. Officers recommend designating a sober drive or staying the night at the location of the celebration. The Sate & Sober campaign is funded by the National Highway traf- fic Safety Administration and admin- istered by OTS. The program is designed to reduce traffic fatalities and serious injuries. q CUSTOM BUTCHERING DAYS- MON. & WED. t,ERGENCY CALL DALE 605-938-4389 OR LEON 320-325-5230 Christmas Tea The North Stars 4-H Club invites you to our Christmas Tea to be held on Saturday, Dec. 14 from 2:00 3:20 p.r,i backmom ff Our Place Card.  .......
