Child’s wheelchair found in Sauk Centre

A missing wheelchair valued at $12,000, for 6-year-old Tyce Sauter of Becker, was found Sunday in Sauk Centre.
The blue and black Zippie custom made pediatric wheelchair was reported missing on Jan. 15 by the boy’s father, Thomas Bartkowicz, who lives north of Sauk Centre.
According to Bartkowicz, he thought the chair had been lost or stolen from the back of his pickup somewhere between Sauk Centre and Albany.
Al Gettel of Precision Ag Parts and Equipment on the north end of Sauk Centre hadn’t heard anything about the missing wheelchair when he noticed it in the ditch on his property over a week ago.
“It was just laying in the road ditch,” said Gettel. “I thought maybe someone threw it away – it looked beat up. The vinyl was all banged up.”
Gettel brought it into his garage for about a week, but then thought maybe someone would come looking for it.
“I thought someone might drive by and see it,” he said.

MnDOT asks motorists’ help for safer driving around snowplows

MnDOT asks motorists’ help for safer driving around snowplows

ST. PAUL – There have been more than 30 crashes this season involving vehicles and snowplows, and the Minnesota Department of Transportation is urging motorists to use extra caution during plowing and snowing operations.

“Crashes typically happen because of inattentive drivers, motorists driving too close to the plow or motorists driving too fast for conditions,” said Steve Lund, state maintenance engineer. “Our snowplow drivers are well trained to drive their plows, but motorists should be patient and stay back from the plow. Snowplows travel much slower than the posted speeds because it is most effective for clearing roads.”

Lund said that operators’ ability to see behind them is restricted behind the truck so they must rely on mirrors to see to the rear and side of the truck.

Give this holiday season Red Cross urges blood donation

A news release sent out on Dec. 5, 2016 from the American Red Cross states – It can’t be wrapped or placed under a tree, but the perfect gift can help save patient lives this holiday season. The American Red Cross urges eligible donors to give the lifesaving gift of a blood donation in December, a time when donations decline but the needs of patients remain steady.
Barbara Coger will never forget the donors that gave the blood that her husband received during the holidays.
“I have been donating blood for some time, but really started encouraging others to do so after my husband received a donation on Christmas Eve,” she said. “He had not been doing well and would not survive much longer, but with that extra boost, he was able to share a big smile with me on Christmas morning, something I will always cherish.”
