Diocese of St. Cloud. Euchre anytime there are enough players By ]ean Doran Matua, Editor Last week, Jen Nelson and Bridgette Zoller became heroes to an elderly neighbor woman who lived alone. Zoller had noticed that she hadn't seen her neighbor, or her two dogs, in a few days. She asked Nelson about her. They tele- phoned her, knocked on her door, and rang the bell. There was no answer to any of their attempts. Both thought she must have left for awhile with friends or family. Later that evening, Nelson again called and tried the door. She requested that Kimball Police check on her welfare. When the officer arrived, he could see her through the window: the woman was lying on the kitchen floor. They called for Watkins Ambu- lance while the officer and Nelson entered the house, Nelson secur- ing the dogs who were quite hun- gry and thirsty. The woman had had a stroke three days earlier, and could not get up. She hadn't eaten or drunk anything in all that time. Nelson gave her sips of water until she could get to the hospital. Others had been calling the woman, including a son who lives an hour or so away. She could hear the phone messages with the time and date stamp, and that's how she knew how long she'd been down. Her prognosis is unclear at this time, but her two cats will need to be re-homed, at least temporarily. Her dogs may as well. If you can help foster her pets, please contact Jen Nelson at Diva's in Kimball. Supper in the Park Aug. 12 Kimball Days Event Are you wondering what that antique bowl of grandma's is worth?
