Thursday, Ma00c. 00011 Co ity Tri-Coun News, Kimball, MN  Feed the Need Food Drive 2011 KES Student Government would like to thank all of the stu- dents, staff and families of Kim- ball elementary for donating food to the Feed the Need Food Drive held in February. Thank you to all staff members for assisting stu- dent government with the collec- tion, and for also providing boxes for us to store the donations. We also would like to give a big thank you to Jennifer Schief- elbein for helping us organize the food, and for helping us with the delivery of items to the Kim- ball Area Food Shelf. Many items were donated such as toothpaste and toothbrushes, to soups, Cake mixes and more. Our grand total of items was 876, weighing in at 816 lbs. Wow! A big thank you also is extended to Mary Mathias for giving us the ideas" for the items needed in the Kimball area. Many people truly benefit from all of the generous donations, and Mary Mathias puts a lot of time to help out those in need. Gohmann's Foods was also kind enough to let us borrow a grocery cart during our two-week food drive. It was fun to push the cart from room to room to collect the many donations. It was quite a shopping spree. It is through the kindness and support from donors like you that our Kimball Area Food Shelf is able to provide such great services. Thank you all for making our 2011 KES Food Drive a true success! Written byMaicy Vossen and Jordan Dockery KES Student Government Local author defies death, time after time Indeed, his deep and unfading faith is a strong theme throughout his life and this book. If you're a believer in a power greater than us, this book will affirm your belief in a loving and caring God, in guardian angels, and in the power of prayer. If you're a thrill-seeker, like Gottschalk, you'll appreciate the wild and crazy adventures he takes you on in each chapter. If you are nostalgic about the good old days back on the farm, you'll love his tales of farm life. If you're a fan of great story-tell- ing, this is one book you'll have a hard time putting down. Nine Lives to Eternity is written in 28 chapters, each one a fast read and an adventure of its own. As it turns out, writing a book was Gottschalk's dream since he was in high school. His first book, published nearly 30 years ago, is The Folk and Their Fauna, a delightful story about peo- ple and their animals. Along with the recent release of Nine Lives, his publisher has re-pub- lished The Folk and Their Fauna. Both are available online at www. and at the Tri-County News office on Main Street in Kimball. Gottschalk will be available for book sales and signings at the Tri- Couniy News booth in the Kim- ball Area Business and Commu- nity Expo from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Sat- urday, March 26, at the Kimball high school, and from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at Triple R Grill & Bar on Hwy. 15 in Kimball. By ]ean Doran Matua, Editor Some of us have had near-death experiences: accidents and mis- haps where we might not have sur- vive& A few of us might have had more than one. None of us would hope to have the legendary nine lives of a cat. But here, among us, is a man who has hadthree times those nine lives: He :fias experienced' 27'iffe- threatening, deadly enC0iJfitbrs during his brief 55 years on Earth, and lived to tell the tale. After his most recent brush with death, a motorcycle/deer col- lision last year, his sons convinced him to write a book about it. Some months later, Nine Lives to Eternity was in print. From infancy forward, Scott Gott- schalk has documented his many potentially life4hreatening accidents and mishaps in great detail. Poison- ing, farm accidents, motorcycle and auto accidents, dangerous interac- tions with large wild animals, over- seas war and riots, and more. Twenty- six broken bones. And harried par- ents, wife, and sons. And yet, he goes on. Boldly and seemingly unstoppable. Gottschalk grew up on a farm near Byron, Minn. He and his wife Astrid (Sammeli) live near Kingston, just south of Kimball. Their aduk sons Trevor and Travis attended Kimball schools and now are both married. He is a consultant and educator with Land O'Lakes International Division. He has been at the fore- front of developing and teaching dairy farming practices for emerg- ing countries such as Poland and Estonia in the former Soviet bloc, Afghanistan, and Uganda. Gottschalk writes with such detail that you feel you are there, as a witness to his adventures; you want to pull him out of harms way. And yet each chapter, each story of survival, reads quickly and makes you hungry for more. Just as you finish one, and you're thinking "what else could happen to this guy?" along comes yet another tale of miraculous survival. It could be sheer luck, if you choose to believe that. But Gott- schalk credits God's divine inter- vention and a small army of guard- ian angels for his return from the veil, time after time.
