Give this holiday season Red Cross urges blood donation

A news release sent out on Dec. 5, 2016 from the American Red Cross states – It can’t be wrapped or placed under a tree, but the perfect gift can help save patient lives this holiday season. The American Red Cross urges eligible donors to give the lifesaving gift of a blood donation in December, a time when donations decline but the needs of patients remain steady.
Barbara Coger will never forget the donors that gave the blood that her husband received during the holidays.
“I have been donating blood for some time, but really started encouraging others to do so after my husband received a donation on Christmas Eve,” she said. “He had not been doing well and would not survive much longer, but with that extra boost, he was able to share a big smile with me on Christmas morning, something I will always cherish.”

They try to confuse the person at the counter and get more money back than what they were given. It has been known they stopped in Sauk Centre first and have since left town but wanted all local businesses to be aware of this type of scam and to please contact the Melrose PD if you have any suspicious activity at 256-7211.

Signs on trail for Jacob

Submitted by Cliff Borgerding
Lake Wobegon has come to represent small town America and the values and personalities that help make America great. Garrison Keillor’s News from Lake Wobegon stories reminded us every week for over 40 years what life in America is about. Here’s a great real life example of those values and the people that go with that experience.
In late September I received a call from Lisa Klaphake asking if it would be possible to put up signs along the Lake Wobegon Trail to commemorate the memory of Jacob Wetterling. Lisa and her husband Dewey Klaphake live in the countryside near Avon, one of the small towns on the Lake Wobegon Trail. They just wanted to do something to help people remember Jacob and the #11forJacob movement encouraging people to practice the traits Jacob valued. They were willing to take on the project including funding it and putting up the signs themselves.
