Bob Hermannd693-6782 .,...> Dear Trooper Kathy: What is going on out there? Is there some- thing we can do? Trooper Kathy Says: This has been a horrendous spring on our Minnesota highways. People of Minnesota commonly think we have more "fatals" and serious per- sonal injury crashes in the winter but, the latest round of fatal crashes reminds us that dry pavement tends to bring out faster drivers and more risk taking behavior. Friday afternoon, April 23, four teenage girls (ages 16, 14, 13, 12) were involved in a single vehi- cle rollover near Altura, Minn. (D2100). The girls had just left their high school for the day when they crashed on County Road 27 in Winona County. All four girls were thrown from the pickup, three of them died at the scene, while the fourth gift was air lifted to the hos- pital. It is worthy of stopping for a moment to think about this fact: One high school has lost three stu- dents, three families have lost a daughter and sister, and one com- munity has three fewer citizens as a result of this crash. These same people are praying for the fourth victim to recover. Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, 13 more people were killed on Min- nesota highways. The most pre- dominant factor in all cases was NO SEATBELTS. Alcohol played a part in some of the fatalities hut not all. High speed or inattentive driv- ing was another major factor. Inat- tentive driving includes talking on a cell phone, talking to people in your vehicle, and just plain NOT PAYING ATTENTION TO YOUR DRIVING! This is not limited to just teenag- ers. Sgt. Kathy Pederson Minnesota State Patrol Highway deaths: Is there something we can do? We have all been exposed to tragedies at the hands of impaired drivers, reckless drivers, inattentive drivers, and those that choose not to wear a seat belt. While the inves- tigation and reconstruction into these crashes will continue, we are all aware of the factors that likely contributed to these tragedies. The importance of wearing seat belts has been emphasized by the State Patrol for many years. The passage of primary legislation, last summer has enabled us, through enforcement, to make great strides in educating the public about the importance of seat belt usage. These crashes serve as a tragic reminder that there is a name and a face attached to each number. Theft by check May 6, the Meeker County Sheriff's Office received a report of "Theft by check" from a business located in Watkins. Mies Outland reported that May 1, Cory Paul Moudry of Olivia, Minn., came to the business and purchased two used Polaris brand ATVs from them. The suspect paid for the ATVs with a personal check in the amnount of $8,500. Upon present- ing the check to the bank, it was returned "Account Closed." Monday, May 10, at 3:32 p.m. Meeker County Sheriff's Office issued a Probable Cause Pick Up and Hold for Cory Paul Moudry. Renville County was advised of the hold; and a short time later at about 5:37 p.m., the Sheriff's Office was advised that Moudry had been located and was currently in custody. Moudry was taken to the Meeker County Jail and is cur- rently being held pending for- mal charges through the Meeker County Attorney's Office. 'ObamaCare' and other health-care reform scams The recently passed health-care reform has older adults looking at how the newly passed legislation may affect their Medicare or other health-care coverage. However, it is also providing a perfect opportunity for new scams to appear telling Medi- care beneficiaries they have to make changes in their health-care policy. Scammers are calling older adults or even going door-to-door trying to sell "Obama Care" pplicies. "Obama Care" is a fictitious policy that scam- mers claim is required by health-care reform, even for those on Medicare. To encourage individuals to enroll into Obama Care or simi- lar universal-care policies, scam- mers may claim there is a lim- ited time to enroll and if one does not take advantage of this enroll- ment period, they will no longer have health-care coverage after a certain date. After collecting an older adult's personal information, including their Medicare number and bank account information, .the victim will soon find that while they did not lose their health-care cover- age, they lost much of what was in their bank account. To report a potential scam or if you have been the victim ofa scam, call the Senior LinkAge Line@. The Senior LinkAge Line is a free ser- vice of the Minnesota Board on Aging.
