Taylor Library Solar Eclipse Party Draws Big Crowd The Taylor Library hosted a fun and educational solar eclipse party on Monday. By Joe Steck – Mankato Times NORTH MANKATO, MINN. — Close to 1,000 people gathered at Storybook Park in North Mankato in hopes of viewing the solar eclipse. The event was hosted by the North Mankato Taylor Library and there were numerous educational and fun activities for all. “We ordered 1,000 pairs of glasses over a year and a half ago,” said Michelle Zimmermann, Children’s Librarian at the Taylor Library “We have solar eclipse themed activities for the kids. They can decorate cookies, make solar eclipse artwork, go on a scavenger hunt and make their own viewing box.” Dakota Meadows 6th grader Maddy Chavez making sun flairs on her solar eclipse art project. The library gave out the special glasses to those who registered for the event and had a few pairs left over for those who did not register. While the weather did not fully cooperate, it did not prevent people from having fun. Maddy Chavez, a 6th grader at Dakota Meadows said she was excited to “experience the eclipse.” Bill Aukes took a photo of the eclipse reflected through his spotting scope. Although cloud cover prevented North Mankato viewers from seeing a complete eclipse, they were able to capture a brief glimpse of the early phase. Bill Aukes built a solar viewer with a spotting scope. “I wanted to view the eclipse but I couldn’t find glasses,” said Aukes “I looked at building a viewing box but then decided that using my spotting scope would work better.” All in all it was a great event, even though Mother Nature did not cooperate. People were outside, children learned about the eclipse and fun was had by all. Great job Taylor Library staff and volunteers! kids making solar cookies. .
|Make the Right Choice – Drive Sober or Get Pulled OverMankato Times / 8 h. 14 min. ago more|
Make the Right Choice – Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Extra DWI Patrols Aug. 18 – Sept. 3 Mankato Times ST PETER, Minn. – Whether it’s having fun on the boat or playing beach volleyball, it’s easy for a person to lose track of how much alcohol they’re drinking while out celebrating the final days of summer. It’s easy to forget that driving home with a buzz is drunk driving. As summer winds down, officers, deputies and troopers from more than 300 agencies statewide will be working overtime with funding provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The Minnesota Department of Public Safety Office of Traffic Safety (DPS-OTS) coordinates the extra enforcement and education effort, which runs Aug. 18–Sept. 3. As law enforcement kicks off the extra enforcement period, Mark Griffith, South Central EMS director, is speaking out as a reminder to make good choices when celebrating the upcoming Labor Day holiday. “Everyone plays a role in public safety, especially on our roads. When you get behind the wheel, make sure you are not putting yourself or anyone else at risk — and if you have been drinking, make sure you have a plan for a sober ride home,” said Griffith. “Don’t be afraid to speak up. Take the keys away from a friend or loved one, and find them a sober ride home. It could save a life, even yours.” According to Blue Earth County Commissioner Drew Campbell, “The focus of the local safe roads coalitions in Blue Earth, Nicollet and Le Sueur counties has been on getting impaired drivers off our roads.” The local coalition members have partnered with local bars and law enforcement to place thank you notes on vehicles left in the parking lots of these establishments. “These individuals made the right choice to call a cab, friend or family member, to pick them up,” said Campbell. Drivers Heeding the Warnings: Preliminary numbers show there were 73 drunk driving-related fatalities last year compared with 95 in 2015, a 22 percent decrease. “We have confidence that people will make the right choice during the upcoming Labor Day holiday and beyond by planning ahead for a sober ride,” said Cpt. Jeremy Geiger, Minnesota State Patrol. “But if you choose to drive impaired, Troopers will be out on the roads, focusing on getting drunk drivers off the road before they hurt or kill themselves or others that are sharing the road. To help make the summer travel season safe and enjoyable for everyone, motorists need to drive sober, pay attention, slow down and buckle up.” DWI Consequences: Loss of license for up to a year, thousands of dollars in costs and possible jail time. Repeat DWI offenders, as well as first-time offenders arrested at 0.16 and above alcohol-concentration level, must use ignition interlock in order to regain legal driving privileges or face at least one year without a driver’s license. Offenders with three or more offenses are required to use interlock for three to six years, or they will never regain driving privileges. Commit to a Sober Ride: Plan for a safe ride — designate a sober driver, use a cab/public transportation, or stay at the location of the celebration. Speak up – Offer to be a designated driver or be available to pick up a loved one anytime, anywhere. If you see an impaired person about to get behind the wheel, get them a safe ride home. Buckle up — the best defense against a drunk driver. Report drunk driving — call 911 when witnessing impaired driving behavior. Be prepared to provide location, license plate number and observed dangerous behavior. The enhanced DWI enforcement campaign is a component of the state’s Toward Zero Deaths (TZD) program. A primary vision of the TZD program is to create a safe driving culture in Minnesota in which motorists support a goal of zero road fatalities by practicing and promoting safe and smart driving behavior. TZD focuses on the application of four strategic areas to reduce crashes – education, enforcement, engineering, and emergency medical and trauma response.

|FOCUS ON AG: BENEFICIAL AUGUST RAINFALLMankato Times / 12 h. 24 min. ago more|
FOCUS ON AG: BENEFICIAL AUGUST RAINFALL By Kent Thiesse, Farm Management Analyst and Vice President, MinnStar Bank Mankato Times Many areas of the Upper Midwest were starting to get quite dry in early August; however, recent rainfalls have alleviated these concerns in many areas. Most of Minnesota, Northern Iowa, and the Eastern Dakota’s received some very beneficial rain during the first three weeks of August, with some locations receiving excessive amounts of rainfall as part of severe thunderstorms. Much of Central and Western North and South Dakota remain under a moderate to extreme drought, and portions of Western Iowa continue to be extremely dry. The University of Minnesota Southern Research Center at Waseca, received 1.21 inches of rainfall during the first half of August, but did receive some additional rainfall on August 16 and 17. This followed 6.56 inches of rainfall in July at Waseca, which was over two inches above normal. For the year, total 2017 precipitation at Waseca through mid-August is slightly above normal. The number of growing degree units (GDU’s) at Waseca was approximately 20 percent below normal during the first three weeks of August; however, the 2017 GDU accumulation since May 1st remains slightly above normal. The U of M Research Center at Lamberton, in Southwest Minnesota, received 1.39 inches of rainfall during the first two weeks of August, which followed 4.01 inches of rainfall during July. As of August 14, the Lamberton location received had received 14.08 inches of total precipitation since May 1, which was about 1.5 inches higher than normal. Some areas of Southwest and South Central Minnesota received rainfall amount of 3-9 inches on August 16 and 17, which resulted in considerable standing water in some locations. The GDU accumulation from May 1 through August 14 at the Lamberton location was about 4 percent below normal. Even though we are getting fairly late into the growing season, some crop challenges remain. The very cool, moist growing season in early August can be favorable for the development of corn and soybean diseases. Some of these diseases that occur before plants reach maturity can cause plants to die-down earlier than normal, which can ultimately reduce yields. Root-rot diseases also occur more frequently when crops are continually in saturated soil conditions. This can cause lead to more frequent lodging, as crops reach maturity. If the cool weather pattern continues, there could also be concern in some areas of corn and soybeans reaching maturity, prior to the first killing frost this Fall. Another issue in portions of Minnesota and surrounding States has been the numerous severe storms that have occurred in August with strong winds, hail, and very high rainfall amounts. These storms can lead to late season crop yield loss, in addition to yield losses from late planting and drown-out damage earlier in the growing season. The severe storms have also caused property damage to houses, buildings, and grain bins on farms and in rural communities at some locations. Based on the August 10 USDA Report, the 2017 U.S. corn yield is estimated at 169.5 bushels per acre, and the 2017 U.S. soybean yield is estimated at 49.5 bushels per acre. These estimates are higher than many private grain marketing analysts are estimating. Minnesota’s 2017 corn yield is estimated at 183 bushels per acre, trailing last year’s record State average yield of 193 bushels per acre. Minnesota’s soybean yield for this year is projected at 49 bushels per acre, again below the 2016 record average yield of 52.5 bushels per acre. Iowa is estimated to have a 2017 corn yield of 188 bushels per acre, and a State average soybean yield of 56 bushels per acre, which significantly trail the 2016 record yields of 203 bushels per acre for corn and 60.5 bushels per acre for soybeans. History has shown that the final U.S. corn and soybean yields can vary considerably from the mid-August USDA Report to the final yield results, which are usually released in January, following the completion of harvest. USDA uses plant population counts, crop conditions, crop maturity, ear counts, kernel rows, pod counts, etc., as of August 1 to make the U.S. crop yield estimates for the mid-August Crop Report. The final USDA yields are based on actual reported yields. Since 1990, the average variation in the U.S. corn yield from August USDA Report to the final yield the following January has been over 5.5 bushels per acre, with a variation of about 2 bushels per acre for soybeans. The final U.S. corn yield has increased slightly over half of the time from the August report until the final yield numbers in January, while final soybean yield numbers have decreased slightly more than half of the time. In 2016, the final U.S. corn yield dropped slightly from the August estimate, and final U.S. soybean yield increased slightly from the August estimate. It will be interesting how the final U.S. corn and soybean yield numbers end up for the 2017 crop year.

|Governor, lieutenant governor weigh in on Mayo changes in Albert LeaKTOE / 17 h. 12 min. ago more|
Minnesota’s governor and lieutenant governor have weighed in on coming changes to Mayo Clinic Health System’s hospital in Albert Lea. In a joint statement, Governor Mark Dayton and Lt. Governor Tina Smith said, “We have serious concerns about Mayo Clinic’s decision to reduce services at their Albert Lea hospital, and how this decision will impact the community.” Mayo Clinic is planning to move several inpatient services, including childbirth, intensive care unit stays and major surgeries involving hospitalization from its hospital in Albert Lea to one in Austin. “Mayo Clinic owes it to the Albert Lea community, and any community it serves, to engage the public in an open discussion about the impact of its business decisions on people,” the statement also read, “Minnesotans in Albert Lea rely on Mayo Clinic for essential care and services, and they deserve an open discussion, especially when a decision like this affects so many.” Mayo Clinic vice president Bobbie Gostout said at the time of the announcement that the changes were decided upon because, with rising costs and staffing shortages, it was no longer feasible to offer complex and expensive services in both communities, which are just 25 miles apart. Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson is meeting with stakeholders today (Mon) about the coming changes. Minnesota Department of Health commissioner Dr. Ed Ehlinger and Minnesota Human Services deputy commissioner Chuck Johnson will also attend.

|Mayo Clinic Health System Mankato Named 12th Best Hospital In MinnesotaMankato Times / 1 d. 10 h. 40 min. ago more|
Mayo Clinic Health System Mankato Named 12th Best Hospital In Minnesota Mankato Times MANKATO, Minn. — Mayo Clinic Health System in Mankato was named the 12th best hospital in Minnesota and recognized as among the best hospitals in southern Minnesota by U.S. News & World Report’s annual list of top hospitals published online today. Also announced in the rankings, Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, was named the best hospital in the country. “Mayo Clinic Health System in Mankato is proud to be recognized by U.S. News & World Report,” says James R. Hebl, M.D., regional vice president, Mayo Clinic Health System. “The combination of receiving the No. 12 hospital ranking in Minnesota, being recognized as a best hospital in southern Minnesota and receiving high-performing designations in three clinical areas underscores the tremendous dedication, effort and expert care provided by our staff. Mayo Clinic Health System in Mankato also benefits from being fully integrated with the No. 1 hospital in the nation. This means that our patients and physicians have seamless access to the nation’s best medical knowledge, technology and clinical expertise on a daily basis.” Mayo Clinic Health System in Mankato also was rated High Performing in the adult procedures of colon cancer surgery, hip replacement and knee replacement. “Throughout Mayo Clinic Health System, our ultimate goal is to provide high quality care in the communities we serve,” says Bobbie Gostout, M.D., vice president, Mayo Clinic. “Recognition like this is a reflection of the tireless efforts of physicians, providers and staff members to achieve that goal. We’re proud to be included on the Best Hospitals list.” For the first time, Mayo Clinic in Arizona was among the top 20 in the nation. In addition, Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, was named among the best hospitals in northwestern Wisconsin. “We want to extend our sincere thanks to every member of Mayo Clinic Health System,” adds Dr. Gostout. “Their dedication and commitment to our values are the reason we are ranked in the states of Minnesota and Wisconsin and the No. 1 hospital in the nation. This honor is also a testament to our unique system of care that enables us to collaborate across Mayo Clinic and focus on the individual needs of each patient.” Again, Mayo Clinic was named the top hospital. Mayo Clinic in Arizona was ranked No. 20 nationwide. Mayo Clinic took the No. 1 spot in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota. It also ranked No. 1 in the Phoenix and Jacksonville metro areas. Mayo Clinic is part of a select group on the U.S. News & World Report Honor Roll recognized for “breadth of excellence,” according to the magazine. The Honor Roll consists of the 20 hospitals with the highest combined overall scores in 16 medical and surgical specialties. Hospitals are measured for a variety of factors, including safety, survival, patient services and reputation with other specialists. Mayo Clinic has ranked at or near the top of Honor Roll hospitals through the history of U.S. News and World Report’s best hospital rankings. Mayo Clinic was first overall in the magazine’s annual honor roll ranking of its Best Hospitals list and was ranked No. 1 in six specialties, including diabetes and endocrinology; gastroenterology and GI surgery; geriatrics; gynecology; nephrology; and neurology and neurosurgery. Mayo Clinic has more No. 1 rankings than any other provider based on factors such as reputation, mortality index, patient safety, nurse staffing and Magnet status, patient services and technology. Mayo Clinic physicians, scientists, researchers, educators and allied health staff members work together to deliver the highest standards of care and transform scientific discoveries into critical advances for unmet patient needs. “Mayo Clinic is consistently top ranked nationwide more often than any other hospital because of the thousands of people here who share a vision,” says John Noseworthy, M.D., president and CEO of Mayo Clinic. “We owe this success to our physicians, scientists, researchers, educators and allied health staff who bring their expertise to focus on the individual needs of each patient.” More than 1.3 million patients seek Mayo Clinic’s expertise each year. Mayo Clinic’s physicians are salaried to eliminate any financial pressure from patient care decisions. Mayo Clinic’s commitment to quality dates back more than 150 years to when the Mayo brothers invented the team-based approach to medicine — an approach that is continually evolving and improving. Mayo Clinic’s experts work across specialties to provide comprehensive and coordinated care for patients with the most serious and complex conditions. “Our patients tell us that the Mayo Clinic experience is unparalleled, offering answers quickly and giving them confidence and hope,” Dr. Noseworthy says. “Our unwavering focus on the patient is the bedrock on which Mayo Clinic is built.” Many outside agencies rate quality in health care, and Mayo Clinic is the only health care organization that consistently ranks among the top providers nationwide regardless of the quality measure used. This is the 28th year that U.S. News & World Report conducted a rankings list, which encompasses 16 medical specialties. U.S. News & World Report analyzes data for 4,500 medical centers to determine the rankings, which were announced today on the U.S. News & World Report website. About Mayo Clinic Health System Mayo Clinic Health System consists of clinics, hospitals and other health care facilities that serve the health care needs of people in 60 communities in Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The community-based providers, paired with the resources and expertise of Mayo Clinic, enable patients in the region to receive the highest-quality health care close to home.
