One-car crash KCP Sixth Annual Dinner Theater Feb. 20 Friday, Feb. 20, Daniel Sylves- ter Hilsgen, 41, of Watkins, was in a car crash at County Road 45 and 35th Ave. in Fairhaven Township. Emergency responders found that Daniel had been traveling east- bound on County Road 45 in a 1994 Geo Tracker, when the car went off the right side of the roadway and into a grove of trees, striking one tree head-on and then turning onto the driver's side. Responders freed Hilsgen from the car and transported him to the St. Cloud Hospital to be treated for his injuries. Hilsgen was not wearing a seatbelt, and was driv- ing with a revoked driver's license. Alcohol use is believed to be a con- tribffting factor in the crash. Dep- uties will investigate this further. Sheriff's deputies from the Stearns county offices were assisted at the scene by South Haven Rescue and Gold Cross Ambulance Service. 'Real Recovery' program on Mondays A Christ-centered "Real Recov- ery" 12-step program will be ongoing from 6:30-8 p.m., Mon- days, beginning March 2. This will be held at the Kimball Church of Christ, 241 Hwy 55 W., Kimball. For more information, please call Tony at (320) 250-7687. Ag'I practices in shoreland areas The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) invites cit- izen comments at a public informa- tion meeting on agricultural prac- tices in shoreland areas from noon to 5 p.m., Wednesday, March 11, in the Frazee Event Center in Frazee. Aimed at soliciting input from farmers and producers as well as agency officials and local govern- ment staff, the forum is part of the DNR's effort to update shoreland management standards for the state's lakes and rivers. The forum ll provide an over- view of current provisions for agri- cultural practices in shoreland areas and a discussion of how to improve the rules. Participants include the DNR, representatives from the Min- nesota Pollution Control Agency, the Minnesota Department of Agri- culture, soil and water conservation districts, and local government. The 2007 Minnesota Legislature directed the DNR to undertake a new rule-making process to update the state's shoreland rules, which were last updated in 1989.

March 7 Et 8 Kimball Community Play- house is proud to present their Sixth Annual Dinner Theater and Silent Auction Saturday, March 7, and Dessert Matinee Sunday, March 8. (see add on page 9 for times). The event will be featuring Agatha Christie's classic murder mystery "And Then There Were None," directed by Jody Markgraf. Prior to the show, entertainment will be provided by Cherie Ploof and various members of the Kim- ball Speech Team and high school band musicians. As the play opens, ten strang- ers arrive on Soldier Island for a pleasant weekend getaway. As they meet for dinner, a mysteri- ous voice charges each one of the guests with murder. "Prisoners at the bar," the voice inquires, "do you have anything to say in your defense?" Shortly afterward, one of the ten mysteriously chokes to death. When the doctor, one of the guests, determines that the young woman has been poisoned, the remaining nine look at one another in horror. Could the mur- derer be one of them? A great cast of actors make up this ensemble play. KCP wel- comes newcomers Mark Dock- ery arid Kelly Traurig to the stage, along with Kendra Vigoren, Camen Miles, Shirley Gilpatrick, Nessa Gillman, and Patrick Dahle, who have all been in past produc- tions. Veteran Dave Milz returns to tread the boards (sadly not hop- ping this time) along with Jeff Babbitt, whose last performance, other than as KCP President and offical Master of Ceremonies, was as Injun Joe in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Lybbi LaBeau joins us from Annandale High School; she was an extra in Grease. And last but not least, finally stepping on stage after several productions at the light and sound board, is Kimball Area High School senior Burke Tagney. The Silent Auction fundraiser will benefit future KCP produc- tions, and a portion of the pro- ceeds will go to Dollars for Schol- ars, an organization that pro- vides college money for gradu- ating seniors from Kimball Area High School. Tickets for the dinner theater are still available; contact Robin Dockery at (320) 398-7800 to reserve seating as these tickets are not available at the door. You're invited to a Mammo Party! Getting a mammogram has never been so relaxing and so much fun. If you have never had a mammogram, it's been more than a year since your last one, or if you don't have health insurance, this is the party for you. Buffalo Hospi- tal Foundation is throwing a party from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 21, to help detect breast cancer early, at Buffalo Hospital. "The American Cancer Society recommends women age 40 and older get a mammogram every year, but lots of women avoid them," says Rose Voigt, Buffalo Hospital Imag- ing manager. "Since a mammo- gram is so important for detecting breast cancer early, Buffalo Hospi- tal Foundation decided to create a warm, relaxing and fun atmosphere to encourage women to get a mam- mogram." Buffalo Hospital and Buffalo Clinic are offering stress-free mam- mograms and much more, includ- ing seated massages, facial skin analysis and care, computer-gen- erated hair styles, heart-healthy appetizers, gift bags with a screen- ing and other pampering activities, as well as local vendors, including Lillian's will be on hand. Allina Med- ical Clinic and Buffalo Clinic doc- tors and staff will also offer short discussions about menopause and your health-care needs as you age, mini-workshops on nutrition, exer- cise and building a great wardrobe on a budget. Call (763) 684-6800 today to reserve your spot, as space is lim- ited. Sign up with a friend, mom or sister, or just bring them along with you to enjoy all the fun and relax- ing activities we have planned for you. If you don't have insurance, no problem. Buffalo Hospital Foun- dation is teaming up with Sage to cover the costs. The Mammo Party is possible thanks to funds raised at Tough Enough to Wear Pink.
