R Hendricksons' home destroyed by accidental fire By lean Doran Matua, Editor The Martin and Nora Hendricb son family of Kingston lost their home and everything in it in a fire early Saturday afternoon, ]an. 9. The Hendricksons built the home in 1987 on a small hill with a lovely view of nearby fields and woods. The house is now gutted after a fire that fikely started in the basement destroyed everything in its path. All that was spared was the attached garage and its contents. Fortunately, no one was hurt. Nora was home with four of her eight children and three friends. It was Nora who called 9-11 after getting everyone out of the house safely. Meeker County Sheriff's Department responded, and the Dassel and Litchfield Fire Depart- ments worked to put out the fire. Authorities believe the fire was started by accident in the base- ment, and they are not investigat- ing it further. Martin and Nora and their chil- dren - 18-year-old Sara, Karl 15, The Martin and Nora Hendrickson home at 70189 CSAH 27 was de- stroyed in a fire Saturday afternoon, Jan. 9. No one was hurt in the fire that has been determined to be accidental. Staff photo by Jean Doran Matua. Dean 13, Brad 12, Heidi 10, Joel 8, Annalisa 6, and Randy 4 - were able to rent a fully furnished home nearby. They hope to rebuilt their home in the Spring. Martin owns and operates Kingston Auto in Dassel, and the Hendrickson children attend school in Litchfield. Fish house burglaries on Lake Ripley Jan. 7, the Meeker County Sheriff's Office took five sepa- rate reports of fish house burglar- ies on Lake Ripley near Memo- rial Park. Items that were taken consist of fishing tackle, rods and reels, 12-volt car radio, Vexlar bat- tery, two 12-volt car batteries, blue rhino liquid propane tank, and two fish cameras. Entry to the fish houses was made by either break- ing the locks on the doors, pull- ing the doors open, or by break- ing the window and crawling through the window. The break- ins were believed to have hap- pened between 10 p.m. Jan. 6, and 8 a.m. Jan. 7. The Sheriff's Office is seeking information in regard to the fish house burglaries. If you have any information about the burglar- ies or have had your fish house broken into, please contact the Meeker County Sheriff's Office at (320) 693-5400. Suspidous man calls on RockviUe home Tuesday, ]an. 12, the Stearns County Sheriff's Office received information of a suspicious incident/ person that occurred Monday, ]an. 11, about 3 p.m. A Rockville resident living in a more rural area reported that a man came to her home at that time, and said he was conduct- ing a survey for the city of Rockville. The man asked the woman resident if her husband was home and she answered that he was. The man then left and said he would be back later to complete the survey. He is described as a white male, around five feet, six inches tall, with a medium build. He appeared to be about 40-45 years of age with blondish/reddish hair. He also had a full beard and mustache which Homeowners beware of deed scam Stearns County Recorder, Diane Grundhoefer, again alerts prop- erty owners not to be swindled by solicitation companies offering to provide them with a copy of their property deed. National Deed Service, Inc., a private solicitation company, sends direct-mail solicitations to homeowners seeking advance payment in the form of cash, check or credit card for the service of pro- viding a certified copy of the hom- eowners' property deed. The com- pany has been periodically target- ing Stearns County and surround- ing area homeowners. "If you receive this type of solic- itation mailing, PLEASE regard it as junk mail", said Grundhoefer. "What happens is, these solicita- tion companies collect an outra- geously exaggerated fee from pri- vate citizens, then turn around and order a certified copy from the Recorders office for $10 which is the certified copy fee set by Min- nesota Statute." "While the service this type of company provides is not techni- cally illegal, the letters are cer- tainly misleading and a scheme to use public records for profit," said Grundhoefer. An internet search reveals links to numerous complaints filed against the company and other affiliated companies. The Better Business Bureau Web site shows a rating of F on a scale from A+ to F given to National Deed Service, Inc. "Homeowners need to know that evidence of their real estate ownership is secured by an archived record in the County Recorders' office of the deed, or other type of document by which they acquired title to real estate property - it is not based on whether or not a property owner has a certified copy in their pos- was well groomed. He was driving an older green Chevrolet pickup. The city administrator for Rockville advises that the city is not conducting any surveys at this time. Anyone with informa- tion about this incident or the per- son, is asked to contact the Stearns County Sheriff's Office at (320) 251-4240. session as the solicitation letters imply", said Grundhoefer. Certified copies of recorded real estate documents are rarely requested for purposes other than court proceedings, so in most cases, it is unnecessary for a hom- eowner to have possession of or pay 10 for a certified copy. The fee for a homeowner to obtain a plain photocopy of their property deed directly from the County Record- er's office is 25 cents per page. "Most property owners already have either the original or a pho- tocopy of the deed provided when they purchased their home. If not, there is absolutely no need for them to worry. To obtain a copy, they can visit or simply call the Recorder's Office", said Grund- hoefer. Grundhoefer also wants citi- zens to be aware of the #1 tip on the Minnesota Attorney Generals Web site list of Top 10 Tips to Avoid Con- sumer Scams: Never disclose your credit card number, check rout- ing information, or other banking information to telemarketers or other solicitors. Anyone with questions or con- cerns can call the Stearns County Recorder's Office at (320) 656- 3855.
