Most drivers on the road have seen a law enforcement officer performing a traffic stop. Some of you may have even experienced the traffic stop first-hand! Whichever the case, a number of drivers are still not aware of a Minnesota Law requiring drivers to move over one lane when passing a stopped emergency vehicle(s) or road repair equipment. This law is known as the “Ted Foss Law.” On August 31, law enforcement all across Minnesota will be working to educate drivers of this law.
The family of the late Jim Campbell wish to express their appreciation to all those who offered kindness, generosity, support and comfort in our bereavement. Our special thanks to Father John Meyer for his meaningful funeral service; Krista Tarbox and Sarah Goelz for the beautiful music and voices; the Maple Lake VFW Post 7664 Members and American Legion Post 131 Members for the Honorable 21 Gun Salute; and the delicious food from B & P Catering.
Your many acts of sympathy continue to be a great comfort
Vanna and I spotted three turkeys along the north side of Ney Park last week. The were on the edge of the road and retreated quickly into the standing corn. The same day I was driving by Punchochar’s pheasant farm on Spruce Ave. when a mink ran across the road near Frank Hogan’s home. Another day a young pheasant flew out of Potter’s bean field across from Ney Park. Neither I nor my coffee drinking buddies have noticed any Possums this year which is a good sign as they rob eggs from pheasant nests, but I did see a road-kill young pheasant on County Road 8 near Silver Creek. . . the pheasant roosters are quiet time this time of the year and seldom are heard unless they are startled. . .
