Fun Days on page 3 BB IB IB Tom Merchant Sentinel Tribune WESTBOOK -- Last week Kate Jorgenson, 11 year old daughter of Jim and Nikki Jorgenson, was out rock picking with her family. After rock picking she was driving a side by side four wheeler back to their farm when reportedly it tipped over in the ditch and severely damaged her left arm above the elbow. Her brother Jack was following her in another four wheeler. When they got to the house she was taken to Sanford Westbrook Medical Center where she was treated and pre- pared for a helicopter ride to North Memorial Hospital Trauma Center. Upon her arrival she was taken into surgery for several hours to reattach a large part of her arm. By early Tuesday morning her vitals were very good she had blood flowing to and from her hand. By 10:30 that morning her ann body tem- perature was normal and she was experiencing a tingling feeling. By 3:30 in the afternoon Kate was sleeping peacefully. That evening Kate's plastic surgeon reported to the family "things couldn't have gone better." The biggest thing now is infection. She will have her wounds cleaned every other day for a while. Accident On page 2 By Paula McGarvey The Walnut Grove City Council met in a special session on the 6th day of June, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. in the Council Room. Greg Hansen, Leonard McLaughlin, Todd Harrington Lisa Zmeskal (Hoffman & Brobst), Tom Hansen, Mike Zeug and Kerwin Armitage were present. Xiong Yang and Jeff Harnack were absent. Mayor Hansen presided at the meeting Lisa Zmeskal from Hoffman & Brobst reviewed the 2012 audit report with the council. Key financial highlights include the following: *The assets of the city exceeded its liabilities' at the close of the most recent year. *The Senior Housing Fund remains self- sustaining. *The General Fund Balance increased $117,543 to $641,233. This amounts to 116.6% of next year's budgeted expenditures which exceeds the fund balance goal of a minimum of 40% of next year's expenditures. *The city cashed in $500,000 in CD's to pay down the GO Utility Bonds of 2005. *The City issued $1,855,000 of G.O. Sewer & Water Revenue Refunding Bonds to refi- nance the G.O. Utility Bonds of 2005. By pay- ing the $500,000 and refinancing these bonds will now be paid off in 2030 instead of 2045. The overall audit report was very good. A copy of the report is available at the city office for review.
