Postal inspectors continue to investigate this case and are offer- ing a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for mailing the bomb that resulted in the death of Mr. Holen. If you have any information about this incident, please contact Postal Inspector K. Nichols at (651) 293-3220, or Postal Inspector V.M. Lailey at (651) 293-3237. As reported May 20, 1976, authorities knew the bomb had been mailed, intending to kill someone, but they hadn't yet deter- mined who. It was thought at that time it may have been meant for someone living on Route 1. $3,000 was the initial reward. Holen had been in the post office early that Thursday morning, sorting mail as usual. At 6:42 a.m. a bomb exploded inside the post office, blowing out windows, and mortally injuring Holen. He died in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. Holen was 60 at the time of the bombing. He left a widow (Irene), four children with his late wife (Per- fine) and four step-children, and 15 grandchildren. His first wife, and son Michael, preceded him in death. Holen's funeral was at St. John's Lutheran Church in Kimball, and he was buried in Sunset Memorial Park Cemetery in Minneapolis. His widow Irene died in 2005.

Partially funded under contract with the Central Minnesota Coun- cil of Aging as part of the Older Americans Act and administered Honoring lifesaving efforts of and police The Stearns County Emergency Medical Services Task Force is pre- paring for a weeklong recognition of those who deliver lifesaving care. National Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week is scheduled for May 15-21. During this week, the Stearns County EMS Task Force of the Stearns County Human Services Advisory Committee would like to thank all the EMS providers in our area. These 'Extraordinary' people are there, 24/7, when their com- munity needs them. Please join Stearns County and say 'thank you' to your local EMS providers. EMS is a vital public service, a system of care for victims of sud- den illness Or injury. This sys- tem depends on the availabil- ity and coordination of many dif- ferent elements, ranging from an informed public capable of recog- nizing medical emergencies to a network of trauma centers capa- ble of providing highly specialized care to the most seriously injured. The 9-1-1 emergency number, pre- hospital and emergency depart- ment personnel are some of the critical elements necessary for the EMS system to work. This year's EMS Week theme is "Everyday Heroes." Emergency Medical Services Week brings together local communities and medical personnel to publicize safety and honor the dedication of those who provide the day-to-day lifesaving services of the medical "front line." Stearns County has 53 EMS agencies, which consist of fire departments, first responder units, ambulance services, and police departments. - Serving Ceral Minnesota area farmers , Specializing in animal health and nutrition ,, Full line of Purina and Big Gain feeds: dairy, cattle and hog Forage testing and ration balancing Rolling, grinding and mixing Grain bank Bag andlor bulk delive W Liquid protein, anirrml fat and commodities - Buying corn: On-the-farm pickup Buying soybeans for Mankato or Dawson de- livery: On-farm pickup .50 years in iness ' Farm consultants with morn than 50 years ex[xrience combined Call toll-free: (877)619-0581 .... :::: ......... r :: ............... : I r: .......... ] i r Central MN Housing Partnerships, Inc. is holding open houses for all properties located in Steams County Sat., May 21, 10 am - 2 pm Sun., May 22, Noon - 4 First Month's Rent w/12 month lease* *Income limits apply eeeeeoeeeoeeeeeeeeee Ridgeview Court Townhomes 322-326 Spruce St ........... 320-243-2010 ......
