Bar and Restaurant in the city of St. ..... !:,i!~ Minnesota State Patrol " Augusta was burglarized. The sus- ~ ~ar~i,,a. pects made forced entry through a door at the rear of the building. While inside, they pried open sev- eral different machines to steal the money inside, including the pull- tab funds, a dart-board game, a toy box and a bar-top video game. Also taken during the burglary were numerous bills, most were one-dollar or five-dollar bills that were pinned to the ceiling of the bar. These bills have signatures and/or phrases written on them with a black marker. The Stearns County Sheriff's Office is asking if the public may have informa- tion on this burglary, and to call the Sheriff's Office at (320) 251- 4240 with any information. Spe- cifically, they should be watching for anyone passing bills that may have the black-marker writing sig- natures or phrases on them. 55+ Driver 2009 King Features Synd., Inc.

Ed., 500 Hwy 23 W - Room 114; Milaca. May 13 (4-Hr. Refresher Course), Dear Trooper Kathy: I am won- dering why people feel it is nec- essary to yell at others when they really don't know what is going on! Here's what happened. My sister broke her foot and was in a cast. I dropped her off at the front door of the store and then went and parked in the handicapped parking spot. I put the permit on the mirror. When I got out of my vehicle, a lady started yelling at me and telling me that I wasn't handicapped and I should leave that spot open for the old people. It didn't do any good for me to tell her that I had dropped off my sister because she wasn't in any mood to listen to me. Could you please tell people to STOP acting like the HANDICAPPED POLICE? They don't always know what a per- son's handicap is and I am NOT going to explain it to them. Trooper Kathy Says: OK, out there - STOP acting like the hand- icapped police! I think you made a great point and I don't really need to add to it. I will add a few comments though, about handicap parking certificates. 1. The disability-parking certifi- cate MUST be displayed on the rear view mirror. 2. If there is no mirror it must be placed on the dashboard. 3. The MN statute mandates the parking permit is to be displayed by the physically disabled person OR a person parking FOR the benefit of THAT disabled person. A few other rules you might want to know about. A person with a handicapped permit may park: 1. In a designated disability park- ing space 2. In a non-restricted metered parking space without obligation to pay the meter fee AND without regard to time limitation unless otherwise posted 3. In a non-metered time-lim- ited passenger-vehicle space unless otherwise posted. This handicapped permit does NOT allow you to park: 1. In designated no-parking spaces or 2. In parking spaces reserved for specified purposes or vehicles or 3. Where there is a local ordi- nance that prohibits parking on any street or highway for the pur- pose of creating a fire lane or 4. To provide for the accommo- dation of heavy traffic during rush hours Use of this certificate by anyone other than the disabled individual (or for the disabled individual) is a violation and could result in the revocation of the certificate, your parking privilege, and/or a fine of up to $500. The certificate must be surrendered upon the death of an applicant or when a certificate is altered or damaged. If you have any questions regard- ing traffic safety and/or traffic laws, please e-mall her at . Sgt.
