Wednesday, October 16, 2013 Tyler Tribute - Page 5 Submitted photo Eleanor Niemann, formerly of Lake Benton, celebrated her lOOth birthday at the Sunrise Manor Nursing Home in Tyler on Saturday. Congratulations, Eleanor! nco unger The Lincoln Lyon Coun- ty CROP Hunger Walk was held on Oct. 13. Walkers registered St. Stephen Lu- theran Church at 1 p.m. and the event kicked offat 1:30 p.m. Walkers completed a lk, 5k or 10k route. Each walker gained pledges to help support hunger relief and development efforts at home and abroad. Looking to make a dif- ference in these trying times, the Lincoln-Lyon CROP Hunger Walk had set a goal of 150 walkers and hoped to raise $10,000 to help stop hunger and pov- erty here in our commu- nity and around the world, through self-help initia- tives. Twenty-five percent of the funds raised here in Sunday's CROP Walk will go to the Marshall Area Food Shelf and the Tyler Area Food Shelf. Last year walkers from Lyon and Lincoln Coun- ties walked around Ivan- hoe and raised more than $4,000 in their locally- organized CROP Hunger Walk. The previous year we walked in Minneota and raised over $3,000. This year folks from our two counties and some 2,000 cities and towns nationwide are joining to- gether in interfaith com- munity CROP Hunger Walks around the theme "Ending hunger one step at a time." Many of the CROP walkers will be wearing T-shirts proclaiming their solidarity with the millions of neighbors around the world who have to walk to live-- as well as with the millions served by local food pantries, food banks and meal sites here in the U.S. These local ministries share in the funds raised by CROP Hunger Walks. Haiti is one part of the world where CROP Hunger Walks are making a big dif- ference. In the aftermath of the killer earthquake, Church World Service was there with much-needed emergency assistance. With the recovery effort in full swing, CWS is help- ing families and communi- ties to rebuild homes, food supplies and livelihoods. CROP Hunger Walks also play a role in the U.S., help- ing communities ravaged by floods and tornadoes to recover. lemann Eleanor Niemann cel- ebrated her 100th birth- day at the Sunrise Manor Nursing Home in Tyler on Saturday. One hundred red roses were presented to her by her sons Ron and Mary Niemann of Cottage Grove, Richard and Sherri Niemann of Wesley Cha- pel, Fla. and her daughter Jan and Darrell Thomsen of Tyler. Also helping her celebrate were her grand- children and great-grand- children Rich and Faith Ni- emann of Zephryhills, Fla.; Jennifer and Mike Ditlev- son, Dylan and Bennett of Cottage Grove; ]odi and Mark Donahue, Parker and Regan o f Maplewood; ]ason and Christy Niemann and Ethan of Eagan; Kim and Rich Scholtens, lens and Willow of Mankato; and Mike and Lindsay Thom- sen of Lake Benton. There were three grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren and five great-great-grand- children who were unable to attend. Darrell and ]an hosted an evening meal for every- one at their home. Every- one had a great time remi- niscing. On Sunday, birthday cake and ice cream were served for afternoon cof- fee to all the residents. From the desk of continued from page 4 the return of the much- maligned quarterback Christian Ponder, who was sidelined because of an in- jury a few weeks ago. "Beat the traffic" was chanted at the fans who decided they couldn't take much more. I stayed to the bitter end, by the way. By the middle of the third quarter there was a steady stream of fans don- ning purple and gold leav- ing the stadium, I saw an altercation be- tween a fan and security during the second half. I'm still not sure exactly what happened, but it took at- tention away from the field for a little bit. One thing you'll note about what I have written so far, I haven't written much about what hap- pened on the field. I'm glad I made it to the game Sunday; I just wish the Minnesota Vikings also would have made the trip. With a record of 1-4, this is obviously a rough year for the Vikings. While I'm probably going to get tack for saying this, I still believe there is a chance to turn things around. While I don't think a playoff run is likely for the Vikings this season, I think a number of good wins are possible. In addition to seeing Car- olina this past weekend, I also have tickets to see the Vikings take on divisional rivals the Chicago Bears. It will be a tough game, but I still think there is a chance the Vikings could pull out that win. This coming Monday the Vikings will travel to New York to play the Giants, a team that is having a much, much worse season. I believe the Vikings are going to win this Monday. After all, I'm going to stay at my seat until the game is over. I have talked with a few people this past Mon- day following the game and, for the most part, I've heard comments like, "you're crazy if you think they're going to win again this year." I know I'm crazy, but I'm a Vikings fan and there will always be next week. commun The United Way of Southwest Minnesota Board of Directors re- cently approved four Spe- cial Community Projects Grants in the first round total i ng $ 9,735. For 2013 - 2014, $15,000 was made available to fund these special projects. Round two will have a deadline of ]an. 30, 2014 and the remaining $5,265 will be available. All grant ap- plicants were reviewed and interviewed by com- munity volunteers who then made their recom- mendations to the Board for final approval, similar to the process used in the spring for Commu- nity Impact Grant appli- cants, only on a smaller scale.
