The Trooper told him he needed a pilot car. Is this true? Answer: Farm equipment may be driven or towed to the left of the center of a road- way only if it is escorted by a vehicle displaying hazard warning lights that are vis- ible in normal sunlight. The escort vehicle must be locat- ed in front of the farm equip- ment and the equipment must not extend into the left half of the roadway more than is necessary. If the farm equipment does not have an escort, they are required to remove the header and tow it on the highway. During 2013-15, 422 traf- fic crashes involving at least one farm vehicle took place on Minnesota roads, resulting in 12 fatalities and 204 inju- ties. Of the 12 fatalities, eight were farm vehicle riders; of the 204 injuries, 57 were farm vehicle riders. The biggest factors contributing to farm equipment/vehicle crashes are inattention, unsafe pass- ing and speed. Motorists should always slow down and use caution when approach- ing farm equipment.

It was necessary for the roof of the community hall to be repaired and a suggestion was made that a new kitchen be constructed at the same time so it could be used for special events.
