Fall Harvest Farm Safety

Fall Harvest Farm Safety
By: Brenda Miller, University of Minnesota Extension-Todd County
Now that harvest season is upon us, it is important to remind ourselves to be safe when operating equipment. Accidents can happen in less than a blink of an eye and can have devastating outcomes. Here are 10 things to keep in mind as you go through this harvest season.
1. Do not expose children to hazards. Teach them farm safety at a young age. Children watch everything you do. If you put yourself in a potentially hazardous situation then they will think it is ok, mimic you and bad things will happen. Explain to a child the importance of WHY and HOW they should or should not act around machinery or other farm hazards. If you teach them right when they’re young, it will stick with them for the rest of their lives.

Day of service

On Saturday morning, Sept. 10, about 150 volunteers came together at the Eagle’s Healing Nest In Sauk Centre.
“This day has been in the planning for months, maybe even years,” said Randal Baker, President of the St. Cloud Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in his welcoming address.
The volunteers were tearfully reminded by Cheri Moore, the event coordinator, that a day before Sept. 11, they were here serving those who went, fought, served and some who died because of their love for their country. The volunteers were there to help those suffering from the affects of war.
Workers were divided up and went to scrape, paint and clean several buildings on the property. The focus was on three buildings, to get them ready to paint.

New Munich man dies on Lake Sylvia

By Diane Leukam
The Stearns County Sheriff’s Office has released the name of a man that died in a boating accident on Lake Sylvia in Melrose Township on Sunday. Dale Urban Steinemann, 47 of New Munich, passed away after the boat he was operating flipped onto its side.
At 2:15 p.m. Sunday, a woman reported she and other witnesses heard the sound of a boat clearing the water. According to the Stearns County Sheriff’s report, “when they looked out onto the lake they saw a speed boat on its side and watched as an occupant was thrown from the boat.”
The witnesses responded to the scene and pulled two juveniles, a 10-year-old male and a 7-year-old male, from the water. The boys were not injured and were later transferred to CentraCare-Melrose for observation. The boys were the sons of Steinemann’s girlfriend.
