Donating blood is a noble way to celebrate the hard work Americans have done to strengthen our coun- try. As families celebrate the holiday and enjoy the last long weekend before the school year is fully under- way, the Red Cross encour- ages eligible donors to sched- ule an appointment to donate blood. All blood types are needed, especially O negative, B neg- ative, and A negative. Type O negative, the universal blood type, can potentially be transfused to patients with any blood type. To show appreciation for those who help save lives near the Labor Day holiday (August 29 fi September 7), all presenting donors at Red Cross blood drives and blood donation centers in the North Central region will automati- cally be entered for a chance to win a $500 gas card. This is a pan of the Red Crossi summer-long Good to Give. Good to Go. promotion that also offers a chance for one lucky donor (21 and older) in the Mid-America Blood Services Division to win a trip for four (4) to Orlando, Florida. "During the holiday week- end, we typically see a dip in blood donations, but the need is constant. Donating blood is an easy way to help others and only takes about an hour of your time," said Geoff Kaufmarm, CEO of the North Central Red Cross Blood Services region. "The Red Cross encourages donors to give blood each time they are eligible; every 56 days for whole blood donations and 112 days for double red cell donations." How to Donate Blood Simply call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit to make an appointment or for more information. A blood donor card or driver's license, or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental per- mission in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are generally in good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.

ECFE Circus night... Last week the ECFE early childhood group met in the Westbrook City Park. ECFE teacher Kristi Schaff worked with kids and parents in the "An evening at.the circus." Submitted photo DNR asks bear hunters not to shoot radio.collared bears Hunters participating in Minnesota's bear season, which opens Sept. 1, are asked to avoid shooting radio-collared research bears. The bears are marked with large colorful ear tags or colorful streamers. Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) researchers are monitoring about 35 radio- collared black bears, most of them in northwestern Minnesota, especially near Thief Lake Wildlife Management Area and the Agassiz National Wildlife Refuge. Additional radio- collared bears reside in and around the Chippewa National Forest, Camp Ripley, Cloquet Forestry Station and Voyageurs National Park. Bear research also is being conducted between Ely and Tower near the Eagles Nest chain of lakes in northern St. Louis County. "Hunters near these areas should be especially vigilant for these valuable research bears," said Dave Garshelis, DNR bear research biologist. "These animals provide long-term data on reproduction and habitat use that is invalu- able for bear management across the state." Photos of some collared research bears are available on the DNR website at http:// "We're asking that if hunters see ear tags or a collar on a bear, they refrain from shooting it," Garshelis said. "Researchers have invest- ed an enormous amount of time and expense in these individuals." Many of the collars have global positioning units that collect and store data, which is downloaded by DNR researchers when they visit the bears in their dens. Long-term records of individual bears have been the cornerstone of informa- tion that helps the DNR monitor and manage the bear population, Garshelis said. DNR officials recognize that a hunter may not be able to see a radio collar or ear tags in some situations. For this reason, taking a bear with a radio collar is legal unless the bear is accompanied by a research- er who has identified the bear to the hunter as a research animal. Any hunters who do shoot collared bears should call the DNR Wildlife Research office in Grand Rapids at 218-327-4146 or 218-327-4133. Invited 1"o Open House Weing ...... reception honoring .......
