Buckham, Windom, MN Forty-s{.00,ventt - Veterans / From page 1 The local Veterans of Foreign Wars is yet another story. They have remained active within the community for the benefit of many local community projects and as an advocate for veterans, in general. Each year, the local VFW generates more than $5000.00 to the local com- munity, much of which is designated toward schools, children, and the common welfare. In addition, the VFW maintains an "honor guard" for the performance of military honors at funerals for veterans in the area, regardless of service club affiliation. They also perform service projects with the Sioux Falls Veterans' Hospital, and the Luverne Veterans' Home. Generally, the most active members are those who are either retired and/or semi-retired, hence the need for more younger, active members. Currently, the membership of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Post 5098, sits at nearly 140 members. This number remains quite constant, although many members are not local, and consequently not available for projects on a daily basis. Our own local post has per- formed some twenty-one military funeral honors within just the past two years, so it is quite easy to see that it is difficult to maintain an active membership. Several larger cities, including Windom and Worthington, have recently had Legion and VFW Posts and or Clubrooms close. It is the hope of our local Legion and VFW leaders that we can continue to serve our schools, communities and veterans through the various activities which we provide. If you are a veteran, and if you are eligible, take the time to explore membership in either of your two local organizations. If you are not a veteran remember to take the time to thank those who are instrumental in continuing to provide our community and the general area with some very valuable funding and services.

The horn was loud, high-pitched, obnoxious and went on forever as he passed. Is this type of horn legal? Our vehicle's horn must not be unreasonably loud or harsh, nor can it be a whistle. I have heard some of these horns--thankfully, infrequently. They can be very startling and, therefore, dangerous and distracting. As motorists, we are all required to have horns in our vehicles. Each horn must be audible, under normal circumstances, from a dis- tance of no less than 200 feet. We are to use our horn Notice to Walnut Grove & area subscibers & readers A drop box for various news items is located at the... as a warning to insure safe operation and if a warning is not necessary, they should remain silent. Vehicles can- not be equipped with a siren, whistle, or bell unless autho- rized by statute-this primar- ily would refer to emergency vehicles. I recommend calling your local law enforcement agen- cy to look into the situation if this is local and/or frequent in your community or neigh- borhood. Many times, such enthusiasts are not aware of the problems or the law. If you have traffic safety questions contact Sgt. Sticha at: jacalyn.sticha@state.
