SENTINEL TRIBUNE Inside Wednesday, April 10, 2013 Page 3 Council Frompagel Minnesota Academy of Ophthalmology People not taking care of their animal's waste was dis- cussed. If you have animals outdoors, their waste must be disposed of at least once a week. Also persons who walk their dogs within the city must pick up their animals waste and dispose of it properly. Discussion was held on abandoned or damaged residences. Mayor Digger Phelps thought it would be a good idea to des- ignate a person or persons to be building inspectors for the city. Perhaps that would put a little more teeth into actions on that type of properties in the city. The city approved correcting a pay equity issue involving the pool manager Lairdie Kells. As manger her salary had to be increased by 66 cents per hour to comply with pay equity rules. The city received notification from Cottonwood County they would no longer be using the city building for a recycling shed. The County is going to build a 12 by 16 shed to be placed on the county property on Davis Avenue. The council declined to approve their building permit until they come to the council to present their plans. One issue was where they planned to locate the shed, it would require the hauler to go on 5th street which is a 5 ton street, and would most likely cause damage to the street. The city was also a bit miffed over the fact they were not contacted before making the decision to discontinue using the city building for recycling. Changes to four ordinances presented at the last meeting were approved by the council. The council received a letter tom the service provider for the new narrow band radios. The matter was discussed by the council and it was felt the cost of the contract was to high, and voted not to go with the service contract at this time. A golf cart permit was issued to Lawrence Carlson. Building permits were issued to the following persons. Elizabeth Steen to put an addition on her home on Sixth Street. Travis Nelson to move in a trailer to open a business on First Avenue and Third Street. Jim Fowler to build a garage and a driveway at his prop- erty on Fourth Street. The Local Board of Appeal and Equalization will be May 6 at 5:30 before the May Council meeting. March Police Report: One domestic investigation.

"Athletes need to use protective eyewear because eye injuries can be devastat- ing," said Edwin H. Ryan, M.D., and MAO president. "Eye injuries are one of the leading causes of visual impairment in children. The injuries range from abra- sions of the cornea and bruises of the lids to inter- nal eye injuries, such as retinal detachments and internal bleeding. Unfortunately, some of these young athletes end up with permanent vision loss and blindness." Many sports create risk for eye injuries, however, protection is available for many activities, including basketball, baseball, hock- ey, football, lacrosse, fenc- ing, paintball and water polo, as well as racquetball, soccer and downhill skiing. From major league base- ball stadiums to small-town softball fields, athletes are competing against each other, building physical fit- ness, entertaining millions and teaching the value of hard work and teamwork. But for more than 40,000 athletes each year, the game can be ruined by an errant finger or a misjudged catch. That's the number of sports- related eye injuries that occur annually in the United States. Approximately one- third of eye-injury victims are children. April is Sports Eye Safety Month, and through American Academy of Ophthalmology's EyeSmarff M campaign, the Minnesota Academy of Ophthalmology (MAO) reminds the public that the only way to prevent a sports-related eye injury is for athletes to wear appro- priate, sport-specific pro- tective eyewear properly fitted by an eye care profes- sional. Lenses made from ADS CLASSIFIED CALL 274-6136 OR 1 -800-410-1859 "The solution is simple: wear eye protection any- time you are playing sports," especially those that involve small balls at high veloci- ty," said Dr. Ryan. "Most sporting leagues don't require children to wear eye protection, so parents must insist that their children wear eye protection when they play. Parents also can set a good example by wearing eye protection when playing sports." Even a seemingly light blow can cause a serious eye injury. If a black eye, pain or visual problem occurs after a blow, contact your Eye M.D. or seek emergency medical help immediately. For more information, visit www.get- eyesmart.org.
