Page 14 Cold Spring Record Tuesday, November 26, 2013 Rockville News continued from page 13 (malnutrition) from a lack of pro- tein which makes the liver un- able to get rid of fat. Those who have eaten almost nothing get the skeletal look of malnutrition, as the body consumes its own fat and muscle. Both conditions sig- nal a desperate need for protein and electrolytes. F-100 milk con- tains both so it's essential in famine zones. The body needs the sodium salt ions and their positive charge to regulate fluids and help nerves and muscles communi- cate. (Readily available). Potas- sium works with sodium to gen- erate the electrical current necessary for muscle function; helps regulate blood pressure and promote healthy growth (inex- pensive source from patash). Magnesium is important as pro- tein synthesis, muscle and nerve function and blood sugar mainte- nence, (inexpensive usually pro- duced from sea water). Calcium is important for teeth and bones, but even more so as a cell regula- tor, (also inexpensive, usually pulverized, purified limestone.) Iron is needed to bind with oxy- gen so it can get to every tissue in the body. In nutritional sup- plements like F-100, it has to be cheap (often comes as an inex- pensive by-product of steel manu- facturing). And finally the fat, for the calories needed. Milk fat for butter, cream and candy can be expensive, so manufacturers spike some skim dairy products with cheaper vegetable-based lipids, F-100 gets up to 60% of its calories from mostly vegetable fat. All this amounts to a tremen- dous nutritional supplement that saves thousands of lives in famine x\zones throughout the world.

The dinner served at 12:00 noon was especially appreciated. It was a Thanksgiving Day Feast with all the trimmings. A big thanks to Jean Walz and her troop for planning, cooking and clean-up. What a blessing she and her family are to our sen- iors. Winners of the games of 500 were Bernie Massmann, first place. Second place went to Irene Koltes and Arlene Faber took home the door prize. Next month's Over 60 is on December 16. Dinner will be held at noon with cards to follow. All over 60 and their significant oth- ers are welcome to this free social sponsored by the Rockville Parish and its Women's Group. Money: Surgery on your wal- let seems to be happening more and more. Patients are paying a larger share of the cost of medical procedures. The average patient contribution, including co-pay- ments and deductibles, rose to $2,042 at the end of 2012, up from $1,676 at the end of 2011. Over the same time consumer ac- cess to credit that could help pay for treatment remained flat. Individuals whose personal in- formation is compromised in data breach are more likely to be- come fraud victims, according to a news report. Typically the fraud involves using stolen infor- mation to create a new account in the victim's name or gain access to an existing account. Con- sumers who are notified of a breach should take precautions, including using any free identity protection services offered, moni- toring financial accounts through e-mail and text alerts and placing fraud alert on credit reports. Santa Day: Rockville Santa Day is set for Sunday, December 8, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the Rockville Fire Hall. All children are welcome. Bring a nonperish- able food item for the Cold Spring Food Shelf. There will be free pictures tak- en with Santa, tours of the fire hall and the shiny fire trucks. Games and prizes for all. This is sponsored by the Rockville Park and Rec Committee of the city. Family Faith Formation: Families of the cluster parishes of Rockville, Pearl Lake and Lux- emburg gathered in the Rockville Parish Center for the second presentation on Natural Law (a repeat of the lessons given to Luxemburg on the 13th). Laws are those that humans can see and know what is right and wrong without outside help. Because we are made in God's image, the natural moral law en- ables us to participate in God's wisdom and goodness. However, it is obvious from much of the evil in the world that not everyone perceives clearly and immediate- ly the positive dictates of natural. So God provides help, the bible, the 10 commandments, the Beat- itudes, Jesus' life and sacrifice, and the church he gave us. The precepts of the church direct us to participate in the sacramental life of the church, to nourish us in order to live a moral life. Partici- pating in Mass, receive Holy Communion, go to confession, study your faith, be faithful in marriage, support the church, do penance, and be missionaries. All together spread God's love! :: Some classes touched on the upcoming season of Advent, send- ing home calendars with sugges- tions for Advent practices to help families prepare spiritually for the coming of Christ at Christ- mas. As part of the preparation all are encouraged to go to confes- sion during the next class ses- sion, December 4. There will be extra priests available so all stu- dents will have time for the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Their study of the ten command- ments and the Beatitudes this week will enhance their examina- tion of conscience next month. Next Faith Formation is on December 4 for all grades at Rockville, with the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Recon- ciliation. Grades 1 and 2 will have regular class. Grade 2 will be making their first confessions on saturday, December 7th at 9:00 a.m. at Rockville. Roekville City Council: The Rockville City Council met on De- cember 20th at 6:00 p.m. Mayor Jeff Hagen led all in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag at 6:00 p.m. All members were present with the exception of Councilor Randy Volkmuth. The beginning open forum was used by Brian Smith from 80th Avenue. He and the people of the neighborhood are upset because the covenant of this development has been violated.

Richmond Gary Hart, CO www. richmondbodyshop.corn moved two homes on them with- out permits of any kind and in vi- olation of the covenant. City Ad- ministrator talked with the owner who says he didn't know about any covenant. It was deter- mined that the Neighborhood Group (Development) will have to follow through on this having the law remove the buildings. The council would get involved if and when the owner seeks a permit. The Police Report for the month of October showed 34 con- tact hours with seven citations, three for speeding, one for no valid driver's license, driving af- ter revocation, two no proof of in- surance, and driving after sus- pension. There were over 200 complaints, calls, stops, etc. dur- ing the month including two bur- glaries on Pleasant Lake Road, il- legal dumping, noise complaints, an alcohol compliance check and tobacco compliance check (both establishments passed) and many traffic stops. Councilman Don Simon asked about extra pa- trolling past the county park and particularly watching the inter- section of Glacier Road and Half- man Road where there are often skid marks. Vince Schaefer gave the Plan- ning Board report. A request to split the Verkinnis property in two creating two non-conforming lots, the site of the 400 Club and the site of the home. The city has to approve a variance because the lots would be non-conforming "in- dividually". The lot(s) are in the shoreland area within 1,000 feet of the lake so there has already been extensive storm water liti- gation, gutters/rain gardens, etc. The board recom- mended granti- ng the variance with the condi- tion that nothing be changed. The Council gave the variance. The Public Works Department head Kevin Brown requested payment for a water shut off problem in the core city. Council approved the bill of $1,476. Also the lift stations needed to be cleaned with a HydroVac. This was done at a cost of $1,750. Council approved this expendi- ture. He asked for approval to purchase a salt sander control module for $1,100 and the repair of the Tookat for $2,242. Both This week's History Mystery picture isn't quite so old, about 1954? Taken beside the old Post Office. That's grandma Dockendorf's house in the background. 2 of the gals in last week's picture were her daugh- ters. Can you name this daughter and dad and the year for the Chevy? Call me at 252-3017. Thanks for the calls on these pictures. Got a call from Michigan last week and from Richmond; and a few local ones as well. The three Rockville gals were married by the 1920's. They became Ruth Herzog-Hennen, Marion Anderson and Sue Hansen. So our best guess for a date is 1912. Call me if you have a better idea 252-3017. was discussed at length. Kevin explained that the city has a lot of wood to chip. There are lots of roads in Rockville and the brush and tree growth has to be kept out of the ditches. It is possible to rent out the machine after the city gets caught up and that will help pay for it. There is $2,728 budgeted for wood chipping in the budget and there is $6,272 in the equip- ment budget. Councilors were concerned about the priority list of equipment that needs to be fixed and/or replaced. The council agreed to the purchase asking that the staff check with St. Au- gusta or others to rent the wood chipper when it is not being used here. The Fire Department asked for approval of the annual main- tenance of the fire trucks which came to $3,974. The council ap- proved this bill. The department also has three new firefighters who have been interviewed, have been background checked and recommended by the department. They are: Jerimiah Gross, Krys- tal Linglefeld and Scott Perrault. The council approved all three. Mike Nistler requested a 3.2 malt liquor license for his place by Jacobs Prairie. He had one be- fore, but let it lapse. The council approved the 3.2 license. James Bartleme, Agate Beach Road, appeared with a petition signed by 64% of the land owners on AB Road saying they do NOT want it paved. He asked what the city policy requires. The City Ad- ministrator reported that it takes 35% of the landowners to petition to pave it. Gary Grams, who had asked for paving, has not submit- VOTES Rockville City Council Wednesday, November20,2013 Absent: Randy Volkmuth Approved Verkinnes Lot Split with conditions 4 0 Approved Water Shut off repair 4 0 Approved Hydro Vac of lift stations bill 4 0 Approved salt sander control module 4 0 Approved Toolkat repair 4 0 Approved purchase of tree chipper 4 0 Approved annual maintenance bill - fire trucks 3 0 DS Approved hiring of three new fire fighters 4 0 Approved Boomerville 3.2 malt liquor license 4 0 Approved placement on taxes - grinder station cost - Eric Gebault 4 0 Tabled Action on garbage hauling request 4 0 Approved Consent Agenda 4 0 Minutes of 10/16/13 Treasu rer's Report of 11/20/13 List of Bills and Additions of 11/20/13 Certify final copy unpaid bills to tax rolls St. Augusta Blizzard Busters - raffle at 400 Club 2/1/14 Appoint Kevin Brown as Wellhead Protection Manager & Asst.

Advanced and Republic are still involved as are West Central and Waste Management. The reasons for the original study were primarily to curb ex- cess wear of the roads and possi- bly lowering the cost of hauling. After much discussion the City Administrator noted that they could decide to license and limit haulers in the city possibly hav- ing two districts and two haulers. This will be studied again for de- cision next month. The Rocori Trail people report- ed being disappointed in their meeting with the Stearns County Commissioners this past week. The trail needs a unit as large as the county to be the fiscal agent, which they said they would con- sider again if and when the rail- road easements are approved. There were no promises of any fi- nancial support. The city has three applicants ready to be interviewed for the assistant maintenance job in the city. Sportsman's Club: The Rockville Area Sportsman's Club meets on Monday, December 2, 2013 at the Granite Edge Caf6 on Main Street at 7pm. All members urged to attend. Pope Francis: Our new Pope Francis has an especially heart warming personality allowing for free wheeling interviews and in- formal sermons. For commenta- tors (reporters etc.) accustomed to the precision of the theological treatise, interpreting the Pope's thought is a challenge. Many have chosen to construct their own Francis, complete with the cherry-picked quote that proves the Pope endorses the commenta- tors particular political theologi- cal program. If they'd paid closer attention they would see an im- age the Pope has given; that's | Established in 1989 Cold Spring I COMFORT THAT FITS YOUR LIFEI Trademark Frigidaire is a registered trademark used under license from Frigidaire intemational Company, U.S.A. 2010 NORDYNE. All Rights Reserved, quite clear and authentic! In his address to the interna- tional Federation of Catholic Medical Associations on Septem- ber 20, Pope Francis categorical- ly condemned abortion and eu- thanasia. But his speech did not emphasize the customary philo- sophical, scientific and legal ar- guments; rather, his critique ap- pealed directly to the face of Christ. The unborn, the elderly, the dying; each bares the face of Christ. Again on September 21, he returned to the theme of the "face of Christ" that leads to con- version, St. Matthew feels in his heart the gaze of the Lord who looked upon him. It changed his life and in the case of St. Peter, Christ's glance leads to remorse and repentance. And again in the September 30, he speaks of the "gaze of Christ!' that touched him and and he emphasizes that "Standing before the face of Christ is a call to repentance, to conversion of life to costly soli- darity with the innocents marked for death, just as it is a call to re- ceive God's fathomless mercy." Pope Francis has called the Church and each one of us to un- dergo reform by standing under the gaze of Christ. In the trans- forming light of that face, the rest will follow! Pro-Life: Locally we have three MCCL (Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life) Chapters and across the the state there are over 200 such groups. Each is a group of pro-life citizens from a single geographic area who are joined together to save lives and build a pro-life community. Chapters educate communities by setting up and staffing county fair booths, writing letters to the editor, alerting the media about pro-life news events and provid- ing expert speakers for local school, church and civic events. Chapters participate in pro-life action, by marching in parades, conducting fundraisers and mem- bership drives and these chap- ters of pro-lifers impact public policy by doing grassroots lobby- ing and encouraging elected offi- cials to support and enact pro-life legislation.

Helping across the state with all aspects of pro-life work and then going far beyond the state of Minnesota. Begin- ning in 2009, the Obama Admin- istration sent $50 million to the United Nations to promote abor- tion worldwide and funded a new "abortion ambassador" within the U.S. Department Pres. Obama discarded the pro-life Mexico City policy, thereby allowing federal funds to go to organizations working to legalize abortion in other countries. (In testimony be- fore the U.S. House Committee, Sec. of State Hillary Clinton told pro-life Congressman Chris Smith (R-N.J), that the Obama Admin. was going to aggressively promote her (pro-abortion) agen- da worldwide. As a result, MCCL staff mem- bers have had numerous contacts with pro-life leaders in develop- ing countries. All of them want the know how strategies and edu- cational materials to either pro- tect their existing national pro- life laws, or to directly help women who may be considering an abortion. Most of the contacts have come from Africa, South America and Europe. The pro- abortion propaganda was flowing strong. To counter this false rhet- oric, MCCL developed a GO re- port on maternal mortality, which was released at the world Health Assembly held in Geneva, Switzerland in 2009. Delegates expressed much gratitude for the factual report that reveals proven means of saving the lives of pregnant women and their ba- bies in the developing world. The GO (Global Outreach) pro- gram has been instrumental in getting educational/informative information to many countries. The MCCL GO (program re- ceived NGO status (non-govern- ment organization)) at the Unit- ed Nations in July, 2013. This accreditation gives MCCL the op- :portunity to submit written and oral testimony, on issues that come up. It also enables MCCL staff and reps to attend U.N. meetings and conferences and consult with delegates and am- bassadors about life issues.

Just weeks ago a court ruling opened the door to our state becoming the next Ore- gon or Washington with active, legal, assisted suicide! The pro-death group that has challenged our pro-life law against assisted suicide is known as Final Exit, and its members have assisted hundreds of vul- nerable people to commit suicide. Final Exit purposefully sent their leaders into Minnesota from out of state to assist a vulnerable woman to kill herself. They liter- ally flew into Minneapolis one morning, went to the woman's residence in Apple Valley and en- couraged and assisted her to in- hale a toxic level of helium- enough to kill herself. After she was dead, while her husband was at work with no knowledge of any of this, the two Final Exit leaders disposed of the evidence and flew home the same day. The woman's husband came home to his wife's cold, dead body in their bed. We cannot let this happen again. We cannot let pro-death groups like Final Exit be allowed to enter our state with the sole purpose to encourage and assist vulnerable adults to kill them- selves.
