A: Not usually. Once geese have successfully raised an entire brood, their reproduc- tive system shuts down. If however the goose's first clutch of eggs is unsuccessful or destroyed early during the incubation or nesting period, the birds may nest a second time. -Lori Naumann, DNR non- game wildlife program infor- mation officer July 6, 1949 to I November 5, 2001 I Loved and Remembered Cards of thanks in the Sentinel Tribune will be in box ads.

News & Ad deadline Friday 9:00 a.m. (e-mail news must be submitted before noon on Monday) Pause... and Consider By Pastor Rob Adams God Bless America Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, and the people that He has chosen for His own inheritance (Psalm 33:12). Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people (Proverbs 14:34). The first verse noted above was written specifically for Israel. It cannot be applied by any other nation, for only Israel has been chosen as God's inheritance. Sometimes Americans like to think that we are chosen by God, but we are not, in this biblical sense. Yet I think it can be shown that America is a special nation above all the nations of the earth. Its claim to such is that it was founded on principles. Most nations were founded on race, religion, or geography. But the USA was founded on the principles embodied in the Declaration of Independence. These principles are gleaned from Scripture. They were intended to be a final arbiter and guide. First, 'all men are created equal.' What does this mean? When man looks above, he sees that he is not equal with God. When he looks below, he can see that many things are not equal to man. Two men may look different, but if you put a pig between them, all of a sudden the men look much more alike. Equality means that no man should be governed without his consent. Second, all men have God-given rights--life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Within the idea of happiness is the concept of property--men should be able to own property. This idea of all men having the same rights was surely challenged during the Civil War. Third, there is a God. He is referred to four times in the Declaration of Independence: Nature's God, Creator, Judge, and Providence. Our founders knew that there is a Power that rules in the affairs of men. Sadly, they did not go so far as to identify Him as the Lord Jesus Christ, but at least they were cognizant of the existence, power and authority of God. Fourth, man is depraved. This can be gleaned from our US Constitution. The founders knew that man could not be trusted to fully have power over others. Thus they devised the ideas of the separation of bowers, representative government, and limited government. These have served us well for many years. What about our second text above? Has America been exalted? Without doubt, the United States of America has achieved the rank of the most powerful nation on earth. This is reflected not only in her wealth and military might, but also in her freedoms, and in her benevolence to other nations. Her Bill of Rights stands as a beacon of freedom to the rest of the world. She has welcomed the 'huddled masses' to our shores, and has helped to restore nations that she has defeated in battle. Righteousness has exalted our nation. America has been great because she has been good. But one wonders about the future. Is America still that 'shin- ing city on a hill?' Does she continue to practice righteousness, or is her moral fabric at a breaking point? Many signs point to the latter. As we pause on the 237th anniversary of the signingf the Declaration of Independence, we would do well to reflect on the state of our nation. We need to do what we can to see that the principles of our constitutional republic are restored and maintained. We need to turn our hearts toward the Lord Jesus Christ, so that America can continue to be a nation that God will bless, Can children (infants) ride in the front seat of vehicles? We live in Minnesota six months and Texas six months. In Texas, chil- dren (infants) are not allowed to ride in the front seat of a car or truck. I've noticed, in Minnesota chil- dren in the front seat is common. What is correct in Minnesota? Minnesota does not have a law prohibiting this spe- cifically for all children but the law does provide that restraints are to be used according to manufacturer's instructions. For example, manufacturer's instructions prohibit rear facing seats in front seats, thus, it would be a violation. Best prac- tice is what is to be done for maximum safety; laws do not maintain the current safety standards, it would not be possible to keep up or define. It is best practice to keep children in the back seat when under 14 years old, this is determined by pedia- tricians. Waiting this long does have to do with size and firing in to the adult belts properly but not entire- ly; ligament strength and bone density are considered as well, they have not yet matured and are still more vulnerable than adults. A great point to make is that all of us are safer riding in the back seat, so it fol- lows that we would put our most precious cargo there, I say until they go off to col- lege! Minnesota statute requires children to use a federally approved car seat or booster unless the child has met one of the two mile ASK A TROOPER BY JACALYN STICHA markers; 4 feet 9 inches or taller or 8 years of age. ALERT: many children are not ready to be out of a booster using this criteria. Best practice for graduating into the vehicle's seatbelt system is below. Best prac- tices are the same nation- wide. Here are the restraint steps a child should prog- ress through as they age and grow: *Rear-facing infant seats -- For newborns to at least 1 year and 20 pounds, rec- ommended up to age 2. It is safest to keep a child rear- facing as long as possible. *Forward-facing toddler seats -- For age 2 until around age 4. It's preferable to keep children in a 5 point harness as long as possible. *Booster seats -- For use once a child has out- grown a forward-facing har- ness restraint; it's safest to remain in a booster until 4 feet 9 inches tall, or at least age 8. *Best Practice for gradu- ating a child to seat belt use only -- A child is ready for an adult seat belt when they can sit with their rump pushed back into the bite of the seat - back straight and knees bent comfortably and completely over the vehicle seat edge without slouching and feet touching the floor. The child's fit can change in different vehicles. Boys will likely stay in a booster longer, often until they are 10 years old, give or take, using this best practice.
