In addition to improving the lives of those in Park River, grant money also is being offered to Dahlen, Fordville, Lankin, Hoople, Crystal Edinburg, Adams, Edmore, and Fairdale. "Each get $5,000 to promote wellness," Jelinek said adding that it could go toward fitness equipl ent, classes, etc. in any effort to provide a sustainable way of improving the health of the area. Each community has to have their plan decided upon by the end of March, and spent within the next year. Edmore already had a fitness center in place at the school, so they used the money to purchase a keyless entry system that would allow people to come in and out as their schedule fit and would track who was in at any given time. Fairdale bought a treadmill, an elliptical, and a recumbent bike and put it in their church community room, as did Dahlen. Edinburg has begun offering fitness classes in their community center. Hoople is working on a fitness center. And others still are working out the details down to the deadline. In addition to fitness, FCHC is offering heath screenings, Bone Builders classes, Crisis Prevention and Intervention classes, a stress management class and a Dining with Diabetes class. The March Park River meeting was to look for ideas of what other wellness needs still were out there. Kim Blake was one community member in attendance. She offered suggestions for low impact aerobics, which she said Patty Corder was going to be offering in Grafton, including Zumba for older and youth age groups. Another item she brought up was the fact that although classes currently being offered are great for women, there isn't much offered for men who would rather have barbells and weight benches to access at any time. Todd Kjelland said there are a number of ideas that the Park River Park Board is working on bringing to the area. including gymnastics. disc golf. tennis, soccer, wellness classes, and park playground improvements. Jelinek said that she hopes one day some of the ideas spurred by the wellness grant can be carried on through the park board and offer the Park River community a sustainable wellness outlet. Look for wellness to be the theme of a number of events and projects within the next year. Above: Infant cap knitted and crocheted by a group of women from Our Saviour's Lutheran Church in Park River were sent to the Save the Children organization. Every year, 4 million babies in developing countries die during their first month of life, often due to preventable and treatable causes. Making a cap to keep a new baby warm is one of the simple solutions that can help newborns survive.The women from Our Saviour's continue to knit and cro- chet for a variety of charities.

Although it isn't quite done yet, McCollum said they hope to be finished soon. The finishing touches the 4,000 bushel an hour dryer, some of the electrical, rail loading control room, and the elevator's main office building and scale. Gustafson, one of three new employees at the elevator who was hired on after the expansion, worked at a shuttle loader in Arvilla for the past 14 years and in Crystal for seven years before that. "It's an elevator man's dream," Gustafson said. "It's a Cadillac." The old elevator, which still will be used for overflow, was currently being used for its scale until the new office is in operation, but McCollum said they hope to be completely moved over by the beginning of April. According to McCollum, the facility has attracted some new customers, many of them being local. Both McCollum and Gustafson said that the speed with which they can unload these trucks has been a big draw. Speed seems to be the goal of every section of the operation. "We think the bottleneck will be at the scale." McCollum said adding that they have discussed adding another scale in the future. The real test will be when all of the pieces come together. McCollum, who is also the mayor of Crystal, said this project "is a real blessing." Beyond being good for Simplot and Columbia Grain. he added that it is "good for the community and good for the area." / We the family of Larry Simmons would like to express our sincere and heartfelt thank you to our family, friends, church and community for the many acts of kindness and sympath shown to us during this difficult time.
