Museum for the Fallen Breakfast Club, 9 a.m. Nov. 13 Laura Becker-Pallister's son Shawn joined the Marines and during his first deployment to Afghanistan she began to under- stand the full scope of being a military parent. After his deploy- ment, Shawn returned to his base in North Carolina, but 17 Marine families were not so lucky. When St. Cloud lost one son, a young man who had attended Shawn's high school, it was then that Lau- ra's idea began to take shape. A "Museum for the Fallen" is Laura's dream to honor those who died in service to our country and to ensure theywould never be forgot- ten. The museum would provide communities with a living history of heroes, and in addition to learn- ing the names of those who gave their lives; visitors would get to know them through visuals, sto- ries, and memorabilia. Cold water is a As Minnesotans enjoy their last bit of time on water before the ice, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is warn- ing boaterst paddlers and water- fowl hunters not to let their guard down. Right now, water tempera- tures on Lake Minnetonka and the St. Croix River are hovering around 40 degrees. "Forty degrees is cold," said Kara Owens, DNR boat and water safety specialist. "Cold water can prove dangerous, or even deadly, especially if people don't consider the consequences of falling into frigid water this time of year." So far this year, 12 people have died in boating accidents in Min- nesota, compared to 14 deaths this time last year. One person has died during the late boating season (October to November), compared to four deaths this time last year. "It's more important than eer that every boater wears a life jacket every time they step on a boat," said Owens. She added, a life jacket will not only keep you afloat, but always keep you warm if you fall into cold water. The DNR recommends these safety tips for late'season boaters: Wear a U.S. Coast Guard- approved life jacket; even good swimmers need to wear one. Don't go boating alone; boat- ing safety increases with numbers.
