Pillow facts Mark your calendar. Carlson Pillow Cleaning Service will be in Kimball at the Legion Club 7 a.m. to noon Friday, June 18. A good goose-feather pillow (considered the Cadillac of pil- lows) given proper care, should last anywhere between 60 and 100 years and still be in good usable condition. Here's why most of them don't: EVERY time a pillow is washed or steam-cleaned, those feathers have lost between 10 and 15 years of their usefulness. WHY? A feather depends on the oil in it for its life and soft- ness. Washing or steam-cleaning removes oil from them, shorten- ing their useable life. Now if you can get the pil- low cleaned and covered in a'new tick (material) reasonably priced, doing so without removing any oil from the feathers, it is possible to have a pillow that would last you many, many years. This is where Carlson Pillow Cleaning Service comes in. We have a machine that can do just that and do it very reasonably. The machine is mounted in a mobile unit and work is completed on-site while you wait, same day service. This machine system will clean, disinfect, and deodor- ize the feathers without remov- ing any of their oil. Your feathers arenot mixed with any other cus- tomer's feathers, you receive all of your own feathers back, no feath- ers lost. How the machine works: The feathers are emptied into the machine where they are tumbled and fluffed by rotating brushes. The tumbling action has two additional purposes: To remove the chaff and dust to a grate in the bottom of the drum and to sub- ject all feathers tthe germ-killing ozone-emitting, ultra-violet light produced by powerful germicidal bulbs set into the top of the drum. After a period of four minutes, the feathers are automatically vacuumed from the drum into a deodorizing chamber, processing Sgt. Kathy Pederson ......  Minnesota State Patrol ' Summer safely tips Dear Trooper Kathy: I realize summer is coming. Do yofl have any special tips I can give to my kids OR my parents when they come to visit this summer.

"We encourage drivers of any age or geographic region to take these practices to heart and help reduce their risk behind the wheel."
