MIRROR OF BYGONE DAYS FIFTEEN YEARS AGO December 2, 1998 Tuesday, November 24, Pastors Paul Carlson, Scott Nagel, and Michael Smith of the Walnut Grove Ministerial Association delivered the Tornado Relief check that had been collected from local residents and matched by AAL Lutheran to Pastor Tim Baglien of Faith/Salem Lutheran Church of Comfrey. The amount of the check was $6,140.96. The area Girl Scouts held a "Tree Lighting" program at the Community Center on Sunday, November 29. At 6:30 the troops and guests sang several Christmas songs. The singing was held in front of the Community Center and as it was dark, the singers held flashlights to read the music sheets. At 7 p.m. the tree lights on the evergreen to the north side of the front of the center were lit as the sing- ers sang "O Christmas Tree." THIRTY YEARS AGO December I, 1983 Snow that arrived Tuesday and Wednesday prior to Thanksgiving was just a small sample of what was to come by Sunday afternoon. Snow began late Sunday afternoon and continued into Monday with strong winds blowing at the same time. Tracy reported a total of 14 inches of new snow on the level. Walnut Grove High School Choir members made a grand sweep in placing for District Select Choir in auditions held Monday in Lamberton. All entrants in the auditions placed for the District 10 Select Choir, making it one hundred percent. The choir is under the direction of Mrs. Mary Morken. In addition to choir members, the High School Swing Choir was also selected for District 10 hon- ors. FORTY FIVE YEARS AGO December 5, 1968 Fields were drying up and farmers were starting to make some headway Saturday in the long-delayed soybean harvest -- but another wet snow fell Sunday to add still another delay to the harvest. Only a handful of farmers have completed their soybean combining and many fields have not been touched. No longer can the postal patron leave his Christmas cards unsealed and save a penny. This year, third class on unsealed mail will still cost six cents for the first ounce, the same as first class. The school library will be open to the public from 3-4:30 pm daily, Norman Voigt, Librarian, has announced. It is open during this time for students also, but especially in order for the public to make use of the facilities. Helping to hea therapist helps Ito heal the world Rehana Webster, therapist with Helping To Heal clinic of Tracy, recently returned from a sojourn to Manilla, the Philippines, where she dedicated four days in teach- ing professionals how to work with the people rav- aged by the recent monster typhoon Haiyan. Webster, who has been with HTH for four years, is a master in the therapies known as emotional freedom techniques (EFT) and neurolinguistic program- ming (NLP). She developed an extremely simple combi- nation of those two thera- pies called "Trauma Buster Technique", for assisting those affected by the trauma of war and natural disasters, and has published an ebook of the same name describ- ing its use. In 2012 and again in 2013, she flew to Pakistan to work with women and children victims of war and abuse to teach its use. In early November 2013, a nongovernmental organiza- tion engaged her to assist the people of the Philippines in recovering emotionally from the devastating monster typhoon. "EFT is sometimes referred to as Acupuncture without the needles", said Webster. "Gentle finger tapping replac- es the sharp needles of acu- puncture, and research shows it's just as effective, without the pain. EFT has been used for a wide range of emotion- al conditions, ranging from bed wetting to the post trau- matic stress disorder (PTSD) of combat and sexual abuse. The use of EFT for those with cancer and other serious physical conditions helps to rid them of the despair of such a frightening disease, and arm them with a "can do" attitude instead. NLP was developed from observing master thera- pists such as Virginia Satir and Milton Erickson, who were known for their speedy resolution of psychiatric and family issues. The new Trauma Buster Technique builds upon both, and is sim- plified for easy teaching and use by the patient." Born in Canada, Rehana has lived much of her adult life in New Zealand and Western Australia, and serves as the international outreach arm of the local clinic. When asked why she relocated to New Zealand from Canada, Webster once replied, "Canada was just too darned cold for me!" She's been in the southern climates for most of her professional life. Rehana consults regu- larly with colleagues at HTH and is available to work with patients in the Upper Midwest through phone, email and Skype. BBB Alert: Possible new twist in phishing scam A series of calls that mirror a previous scam may be attempting to lure seniors into giving away personal infor- mation. The BBB first reported on a Medical Alert phishing scam in May of 2013. Inthe scam, seniors received robo- calls from scammers posing as representatives of a medi- cal alert monitoring com- pany. They were informed a medical alert system had been purchased for them by an unknown party, and requested banking and other personal information to reg- ister. Now in a new twist, the calls are offering seniors $3,000 in "food savings cer- tificates" along with a free medical alert bracelet. The robo-call says the following message: "For those sixty years old or older. You now quali- fy under the new National Senior Assistance Program to receive three thousand dollars in free groceries sav- ings certificates. They can be used at over a hundred major grocery chains across the US. In addition to your three thousand dollars in savings certificate you'll receive a free emergency medical alert bracelet or necklace. This medical alert device is designed to save your life if you ever expe- rience a fall or any other emergencies." The recorded message then requests that the receiv- er press 1 or 5 to accept or deny the free offer, in the very same fashion as the original medical alert phish- ing scam. It is not apparent at this time what personal information this updated version requests, but as the National Senior Assistance Program does not appear to be a real organization, con- sumers are advised to hang up the phone. "The similarities to the original medical alert phish- ing scam are striking and demand caution," said Julie Wheeler, President and C.E.O. of BBB Serving Western VA. "Never, ever, give out your personal information over the phone to an unknown party. Just hang-up the phone." It is not clear at this time from where the calls are emanating, but consumers in several states have report- ed receiving the suspicious offers. BBB's in Minnesota, North Dakota, and Texas have all reported the calls in their respective service areas. On June 27, 2013, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli issued a consumer alert, warning citizens to be cautious of the original Medical Alert phishing scam along with the following tips: Automated record- ed calls from companies are illegal if you have not given a company written permission to call you-even if you have not signed up for the national Do Not Call Registry. To add your num- ber to the registry, you can call 888-382-1222 from the phone you wish to register or visit DoNotCall.gov. If you are on the National Do Not Call Registry and have no prior existing business relation- ship with the company, these telemarketing calls also violate the law. You can file complaints with the Federal Trade Commission at FTCComplaintAssistant. gov.

Spring turkey hunting applications Applications for the 2014 spring season will be accepted wherever hunt- ing and fishing licenses are sold and online at www. mndnr.gov/buyalicense from Wednesday, Nov. 27 through Friday, Jan. 10, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The 2014 spring hunt will consist of six five-day and two seven-day seasons. A regulation change in 2014 means hunters need to apply for only the first three time periods, seasons A through C. All licenses for the last five time periods, seasons D through H, are unlimited and available over-the-counter. A second regulation change closes the portion of Carlos Avery Wildlife Management Area (permit area 511) surrounding the wildlife office headquarters to hunting. The remainder of Carlos Avery will remain open to wild turkey hunting. Wild turkey hunters inter- ested in hunting this spring must apply at a DNR license agent, online at www.mndnr. gov/buyalicense or toll-free, 888-665-4236. A nonre- fundable $4 application fee must be paid at the time of application. There will be an additional fee for Internet or telephone transactions. Hunters who are success- ful in the drawing and choose not to buy a tag will lose the current year's preference point for future drawings but not accumulated prefer- ence points from past years. Hunters who are not success- ful in the drawing will be eli- gible to purchase surplus tur- key permits, which are sold on a first-come, first-served basis in mid-March. Archery spring turkey licenses are good for the last five time periods in their entirety. Hunters younger than 18 must purchase their licenses over-the-counter and need not apply for any season. All youth licenses are valid for all eight time periods of the spring hunt. Prospective hunters may obtain an application infor- mation sheet at DNR license agents or view online at www. mndnr, gov/huntirig/tUrk), beginning Wednesday/l. 27. Hunt information mate- rials include a map of wild turkey permit areas, permit quotas, dates and information on changes. For more information, contact the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157, toll- free, 888-646-6367 or into. dnr@state.mn.us.
