SENTINEL TRIBUNE ON RF00CO00 Wednesday, June 29, 2011 Page 2 By Digger Phelps The summer continues to be quite short on sunshine and warm weather, and the amount of play at the course is definitely falling behind most years. We did have a decent day for the Heritage Health Care Scramble held in conjunction with Fun Days last Friday, though. The twenty-four teams enjoyed a fun aftemoon, and the volun- teers did an excellent job of organizing the event. Congratulations to the team of Jared Lindaman, Bret Lindaman, and Dana Madson, who won the event. This has proven to be a tremendous fund raiser for our local med- ical facility. Both men's and ladies, days have been rather hit- and-miss, and the league standings are rather confus- ing due to the number of incomplete matches. Men's league will be wrapping up the first half of play already next week, so make an effort to get your matches played and in the books by then. Our next big event open to the public is the "glow-ball" tournament to be held on Friday evening, July 15. This has proven to be a popular event and a unique experi- ence to fred your way around the course in the dark. Sign up by calling the clubhouse or simply put your team name in the book at the clubhouse. This is a four-person scram- ble. As usual, the weekend did yield a little more moisture, but we're hoping that the fau- cet will go off for a few days now. Dwayne has been hos- pitalized, and the outside work has been done by Dana, Marv, and Derek. We wish Dwayne a speedy recovery, and hope he's back with us soon. Quote of the week: Remember "you have to be comfortable. Golf is not a life or death situation. It's just a game and should be treated as such. Stay loose." Chi Chi Rodriguez Keep your head down, and we'll see you on the course!! DNR QUESTION OF THE WEEK Q: It's that time of year when turtles are trying to cross the road. Why? Is there anything we can do to help them cross safely? A: The turtles we see crossing roads are typical- ly painted and snapping turtles. Both species spend most of their time in lakes, ponds and wetlands, but lay their eggs in nests dug in dry, sandy and warm soils. Since many roads are built skirting water bodies, our roads often separate a turtle's home from its nesting area. If the turtle can find the right type of soil near their home water body, they'll use it. However, they may often travel great distanc- es to find a suitable nest- ing spot. And so, a turtle may have to cross the road to get to the other side to lay its eggs. If you see a turtle crossing the road, you can help it cross safe- ly. Watch for traffic. Pick up the turtle by the back of its shell - never pick up a turtle by its tail - and move the turtle in the direction it is heading. The painted and snapping tur- tles laid their clutch of eggs in June. Should the eggs survive predation, they are expect- ed to hatch in late August, which means there'll be even more turtles - quar- ter-sized hatchlings - crossing the road again, trying to get home. - Richard Baker, DNR zoologist 91/70 Mix of sun and clouds.

I thought I read once where you said it was summer- time, but many of them thought it was winter. Please settle the bet. Trooper Kathy says: You win this argument. There are more FATAL crashes, Personal injury, and property crashes in the summer months in Minnesota, although this past winter showed a big increase in property damage crashes, we still tend to have more crash- es on the dry pavement. You have asked just in time for us to roll out our summer driv- ing program. MAJOR DWI ENFORCEMENT ON THE ROADS THIS WEEKEND Effort Kicks Off Heightened Summer-Long Patrols .... o Significant weekend DWI enforcement will hit roads with the highest combined total of alcohol-related deaths and serious injuries. Added DWI enforcement efforts will roll summer-long to combat alcohol-related crashes, which typically spike in warm-weather months, according to the Minnesota State Patrol. In Minnesota during 2008-2010, there were 435 alcohol-related traffic deaths and 142 (33 percent) occurred during June-August. During this same period, there were 98,740 DWI arrests, of which 25,519 (26 percent) occurred during summer. "Impaired driving is a threat on our roads all year, but especially in the sum- CLASS.LFIED ADS (,,;ALL 274-6136 OR 1 -800-410- 1859 mer," says Lt. John Ehner of the Minnesota State Patrol, "Motorists can avoid harsh DWI consequences by taking easy steps to plan for a safe and sober ride home." We are in the summer driv- ing season whenwe typically see a spike in alcohol-related deaths. The biggest DWI offend- ere are males 21-34. MN State Patrol encour- ages Minnesotans to: *Plan for a safe ride -- designate a sober driver, use a cab/public transportation, or stay at the location of the celebration. Families should let each other know that they will be available to offer a safe ride home. *Buckle up and wear pro- tective motorcycle gear -- the best defenses against an impaired driver. *Report impaired driving m call 911 when witnessing impaired driving behavior. Witnesses must be prepared to! provide location, license plate and observed danger- ous behavior. The State Patrol, and coun- ty and city law enforcement agencies will conduct extra patrols In the last five years, Minnesota averaged 171 alcohol-related deaths and 373 serious injuries annually. More than 30,000 motorists are arrested for DWI each year. A DWI offense can result in loss of license for up to a year, thousands in costs and possible jail time. The Toward Zero Deaths (TZD) is a program to create a safe driving culture in Minnesota in which motor- ists support a goal of zero road fatalities by practicing and promoting safe and smart " i CLASSIFIED ADS WORK FOR You Notice to Walnut Grove & area sub., cribc00rs & readers A drop box for various news items is located at the... s Mercantile 507-859-2600 next to the Walnut Grove Post Office.
