To the Editor,
My concern for canine officers and their handlers began when canine officer Lazer was shot and killed, along with two police officers, while apprehending a drug dealer in St. Paul. My concern resurfaced recently while watching police officer Andy Stender, formerly of Preston, and his canine officer Sam, on KSTP-TV out of the Cities. Sam had his throat cut by a criminal and nearly died. Now his heart is too weak to return to the rigorous duties of a canine officer. Sam will receive the highest honor the police academy presents: the Medal of Honor. We are very privileged to have police officer Chad Edwards and his canine officer, Rex, here to protect us. Rex is Fillmore County’s only canine officer. Only 20 out of 100 dogs pass the rigorous training to become a canine officer. Rex would risk his life for yours. Please help us protect him with a donation towards a bullet proof vest. Look in your area for donation drop spots. This fundraiser is sponsored by Konas Kompanions Animal Rescue.

To the Editor,
Recently, we have all been witness to the force as well as the vulnerability of our natural resources. Many of us were affected by the storms and the flooding whether it was a wet basement, soil erosion, flooded fields or even in our jobs as with the staff here at the soil and water conservation district. As a natural resource professional, who is committed to promoting natural resource stewardship, I want to take this opportunity to emphasize the importance of protecting our resources. As is often the case in our society, we wait to address an issue only after there is a crisis. Conservation should not be something we only use to deal with a crisis, as we must do now, but it should be something that is practiced over a long period of time, an ethic. After these recent storms, we have seen the benefits of leaving crop residue on fields, to having properly maintianed grassed waterways and to farming on the contour. The benefits of stewardship may not always be visible but it will ensure that your soils will remain productive and that our water quality will remain high. Clean water and productive soils are basic to our quality of life now and in the future. If you need any assistance relating to natural resource conservation please call us at 507-765-3878.
