The Minnesota Department of Health released the information last week after the charges were substantiated. This is a long process no doubt made longer by the month-long shut- down of the state government. The Department of Health report concluded that Heritage House, an assisted living residen- tial facility, was adequately staffed at the time, and not at fault for the incident; only the employee her- self was found to be responsible for the abuse. Thursday, November 10, 2011 Tri- Co ug_eews' ,- W.7-.-,, i The original complaint was filed by Kimball Police after a call from Heritage House about the employee. The employee was put on immediate suspension with- out pay, and was fired three days later. Other than being booked and released Sept. 19, the former employee remains free pending court proceedings. The 77-year-old Heritage House resident who allegedly was mis- treated by the former employee had Parkinson's disease. He died May 19.

One day, you'd see tank tops and shorts, the next, light jackets were needed. I felt sorry for the lady out in front of DIVA'S several days. She sure wasn't dressed for the weather! Poor thing• Last week, I noticed that she was tied to the light pole. October is the month for Okto- berfest. It was celebrated at the dining site on the 18th. The menu was pork roast with raisin gravy (no raisins were spotted in gravy here), parslied potatoes, sweet and sour red cabbage, marbled rye bread, and sliced apples with car- amel sauce. Some diners enjoyed little sausages and crackers before the meal. The Kimball Kruisers 4-H Club made beautiful "edelweiss hats" for each diner. Thankfully they provided the following explana- tion about the hats: "If you attend an Oktoberfest celebration, you will see these hats everywhere. These traditional hats are still worn in Bavaria• They are often made from newspaper and are adorned with flowers, feathers and emblems." The ones made for here were made out of construc- tion paper. Bingo was played after the dishes were washed. Of course, you can't have Octo- ber without some sort of Hallow- een fun. Halloween word search sheets were available and Anita H., Ann Hamilton, and Bey won door prizes provided by Triple R. Eleven diners stayed to play Bingo as that seems to be a favorite• It is time to call 398-2211, exten- sion 13 to make your reservation for the senior's Thanksgiving din- ner. It will be served on Thursday, Oct. 17 at 11:45• "But I thought I didn't have to call the day before anymore." You're right, EXCEPT for the holiday meals• Because of the fact that more seniors want to attend the holiday meals, the cook needs the count in time for her order deadline• Each senior dining site is required by the Council on Aging to have a site council• They would like to have community members participate. Consider this your invitation to volunteer for that. We only meet twice a year. A gift-giving reminder: The seniors love to receive senior din- ing meal tickets as gifts• If you look around your loved ones' homes you should understand why they don't want more dust collectors or wall hangings (hint-hint). Senior din- ing offers gift booklets of 10 tick- ets for $35, but you may purchase any number of tickets you would like to give. They are available at the kitchen in St. Anne's Church, and at the State Bank of Kimball• If your favorite senior doesn't live here, check with me, as the tick- ets purchased here are good in a number of other towns• I buy them here for my morn who lives more than 100 miles from Kimball• She is pretty much house-bound, but enjoys getting Meals on Wheels• Watch the Tri-County News for the menu and information of the various activities available• It will have a deadline date for the Christmas Dinner. Coming up on Monday, Dec. 5, is "500" for fun. 'Til next time, Rosalea Hoeft, Satellite Site Coordinator
