There were flashing lights that looked like markers on the side but we had no idea how deep it was. We continued across it, but was that right? What are we supposed to do if we get caught in high water? Trooper Kathy Says: Now is the prime flood season. You need to start planning now. The Minnesota State Patrol advises motorists in southwest- ern Minnesota to plan for the pos- sibility of road closures during the spring melt. Mn/DOT has been planning and coordinating with local jurisdic- dons on routes and resources for several weeks now. Flooding is difficult to pre- dict and roads may be dosed or restricted without warning. Motor- ists are advised to check road con- ditions at, in advance of travel. Every flood is dangerous to motorists. If you must travel in southwestern Minnesota, follow these safe driving practices recom- mended by the Federal Emergency Management Agency: Expect the unexpected, flash floods can occur anytime; any- where. Flooding can knock out bridges, undercut highways and clog roads with mudslides and debris. Mn/DOT will identify which roads are dosed and warn motor- Drivers are warned not to drive around barricades and to check the state's traveler information website,, or call 5-1-1 for road conditions, closures and alter- Date routes. Do not drive into flooded areas. If floodwaters rise around your car, abandon the car and move to higher ground if you can do so safely. SEx inches of water will reach the bottom of most passenger cars, causing loss of control and possible stalling. A foot of water will float many vehicles. Two feet of rushing water can carry away most vehicles including sport utility vehicles and pick-ups. When a road is closed it is ille- gal to travel in that area. Motorists can be fined up to $1,000 and/or 90 days in jail. In addition, if travelers need to be rescued from a closed road, other expenses and penalties will apply. For updated information, call 511 or click on, when traveling in any area of the state where potential flooding conditions exist. For weather and flood warn- ings, go to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration website, or listen to NOAA weather radio or local radio stations. If you have any questions regarding traffic safety and/or traf- fic laws, please e-mail her at kathy. Sgt.

Homeowners: do your open- burning now The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) encour- ages homeowners to complete necessary open-burning activities now, since annual restrictions on open burning will take effect soon. Homeowners who choose to burn yard waste should try to accomplish that while snow is still on the ground. Three inches or more of continuous snow cover drastically reduces the chance a fire will escape and burn unin- tended areas. A DNR burning per- mit is not required under snow- covered conditions, but local city and municipalities may regulate debris burning. The DNR reminds homeowners to keep safety first when disposing of yard waste. Spring fire restrictions that will soon take effect will drastically limit open burning until summer green-up occurs. Traditionally, the highest number of wildfires occurs during the months of April and May. More than 95 percent of these fires are caused by human error. Because of the high fire inci- dence during this time period, the DNR initiates burning restrictions to coincide with this annual "fire season." The restrictions are weather dependent, but normally last from four to six weeks until sufficient green vegetative growth occurs. Past experience with spring fire restrictions has shown a dramatic decrease in both the numbers and sizes of accidental fires, the DNR said. By completing burning now, homeowners can reduce the potential for an escaped fire. Compiled by the Kimball Area Historical Society Soo Line Railroad From Tri-County Messenger dated Oct. 1, 1936, V.H. Mason, editor Soo Line was built through the village 50 years ago (as of 1936 date). Arrangements are complete and ideal weather is all that is nec- essary for Kimball to bring the cel- ebration of their Golden Jubilee to a successful conclusion on Mon- day and Tuesday. Advance reports from people far and near assure the greatest crowd in the history of the village. The committee in charge of arrangements are cer- tain that the best possible enter- tainment has been provided and everyone should come to the Jubi- lee expecting to enjoy themselves to the limit. The committee asks that all "Old Timers" entering the grounds, register with their name and address at the place provided. It is possible, in case of threat- ening weather, that the balloon ascension may take place in the forenoon, otherwise all entertain- ment will take place in the after- noons and evenings. The program will commence about 1:30 p.m. and there will be something going on every minute throughout the afternoon. An hour's intermission will be followed by an evening filled with entertainment. There will be a complete change of pro- gram on the second day, although it will follow about the same hours. All grade-school children will be admitted to the grounds free, both days, others will be charged an admiSsion fee of 25. The admission ticket will entitle peo- ple to all of the outside enter- tainment on the grounds and the dance. Those purchasing advance tickets will also have a chance on the free prize of an all-expense tour to Callander, Ontario, Can- ada, the home of the Dionne Quin- tuplets; or the winner may select a $50 cash prize. Upon coming to town, don't fail to see the exhibition of old time relics that are on display in the various store windows. Hundreds of items are being inCluded in the display. Mr. Silverthorne has secured gold leaf emblems which will be sold by the high school band dur- ing the Jubilee and it is hoped that all those wishing to assist the band will purchase these emblems to wear during the Jubilee. A caravan of some 50 peo- ple accompanied by the high school band made trips the last week, advertising the Jubilee to Fair Haven, South Haven, Annan- dale, Maple Lake, Howard Lake, Cokato, Dassel, Kingston, Wat- kiDs, Eden Valley and Paynesville. A fine reception was given the group in each of the towns visited and many people signified their intention of attending. As we enter the 125th year since Kimball was established, in 1886, because of the excitement of the Soo Line Railroad men- tioned here, celebration events by the Kimball Area Historical Soci- ety begin. Visit our booth at the Kimball Expo Saturday, March 26, and get a taste of Kimball area his- tory like most of us don't remem- ber personally. Our historians look forward to greeting you at Kimball Area High School (use the south doors). And watch for more events throughout the year that will often feature the railroad. Area resi- dents today still hear those train whistles frequently. While our overall theme for 2011 will be "History in Motion," there will be others like "Sweet- ness from Mother Nature," our April 26th event held at Kimball's historic City Hall at 7 p.m. More details in future columns here in the Tri- County News.
