Tyler Tribute - Page 10 Ruthton News Wednesday, November 6, 2013 uffalo Ridge ..... News from the cities of Ruthton and Holland and from Pipestone County County Card Party enjoyed by many at Ihlen There was a nice crowd at the Eden-lhlen County Card Party Tuesday after- noon at the Ihlen Com- munity Center. Pinochle players filled nine tables. There was a table of Hand 'n Foot players and a table of Sequence play- ers. Marilyn Jasper had high score in Pinochle with a 6,980 and Bill Jo- hannsen was runner-up with a 6,690. Door prize went to Bertha Baker. Shirley Evans was the winner in Hand 'n Foot. The lunch was delicious and the fellowship great. In November the County Card Party will be held at the Edgerton Senior Cen- ter on Tuesday, Nov. 19 (one week early due to Thanksgiving Day in the usual fourth week). Thursday afternoon Perdita Douty, Glo- ria Shaffer and myself (Rosie) were guests of Helen Perkins at the Oktoberest open house hosted by the people at Ridge View Estates for the residents and the community. The food and decor was in Hallow- een and autumn colors, which added to the most welcome theme. Besides the fellowship there was piano music by Desmond Hicks. I enjoyed visiting with Lavanelle Aanen- son, Colleen Hoffelman, Clara Jones, Rita Paulsen, Thelma Westerbur, Louie and Alvina Brouwer, John Van ScharreI, Don Mof- fitt, Hazel Schroyer and Holland News By Rosie McGinty Delores Pedersen, to erton. Grandparents are name a few of the folks. I enjoyed the time spent at Ridge View. That evening I was a guest of Angie Dewitte to see the performance of the Hunt family from Virginia at the PPAC. The five brothers and twin sisters were so musically inclined and played the 25 instruments on stage. The music is created and composed by them. They have had performances in all of the states except for Alaska, Hawaii and Maine. The Hunts signed their first record label in July and will be taking their music back to an orphanage in Haiti for the second time for the benefit of the children there. The oldest are the sisters, who are 24, and the family has been per- forming worldwide for 10 years, so I'm amazed at how young some of them were when they began performing. The music was different than what I expected, but still enjoyable. The newest little mem- ber to join Marie Zein- stra's family is Paislyn Rae, who made her ap- pearance at Avera Medi- cal Center on Oct. 18. She weighed in at six lbs., 11 ozs., and was 20 inches long. Her very proud parents are Jordan Kooi and Jill Deutscher of Edg- Verlyn and Brenda Kooi of Edgerton. Marie is a great-grandmother. Family members and friends were in atten- dance at the birthday party for retired Pastor Dan Smith at Woebee's Saturday evening. Some of the folks enjoyed sing- ing karaoke. May you have many more great years, Dan. I accompanied Mary DeGroot to Luverne Sat- urday morning to the home of Bob Schmitz and Linda McGinty. From there we were guests of Linda at her decorated table at the 10th Annual Tour of Tables for the Luverne Hospice House. There were 23 elegantly decorated tables, all with a different theme. Linda's table was "Magnificent Autumn" in beautiful autumn colors and de- con Others at the table were Ann Pommer, Julie Lanoue and Abby of Dell Rapids and Bob Schmitz. I made a donation and was the lucky winner of a four-place setting with napkins and holders, placemats and a reindeer for a Christmas holiday dinner. It is very nice. Don't forget to set your docks back an hour be- fore retiring for the night on Saturday. For me--I wish they would leave the time alone. FSA Urges Producers to Vote in County Committee Elections The U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) County Executive Direc- tor Mark Zinnel reminds farmers and ranchers that the 2013 FSA County Com- mittee Elections began Monday, Nov. 4, with USDA mailing ballots to eligible voters. This year's Pip- estone County Committee Election is for producers and landowners in the Lo- cal Administrative Area (LAA) #2, which includes the townships of Altona, Grange, Gray and Troy. "Our county committee members play a vital role in the funding and opera- tion of our government,' said Zinnel. "New county committee members pro- vide input and make im- portant decisions on the local administration of disaster and conserva- tion programs. With bet- ter participation in recent years, we have also seen promising increases in the number of women and minority candidates, help- ing to better represent the richness of American agri- culture." County committee members provide a link between the agricultural community and USDA. Farmers and ranchers elected to county com- mittees help deliver FSA programs at the local level, applying their knowledge FSA continues on page 13 How many family members are typically online at your house and what are they doing?

Harvested deer can be donated to food shelves Deer donated to food shelves can be processed at no cost to hunters, thanks to a program coordinated by the Minnesota Depart- ments of Natural Resourc- es and Agriculture. Prior to 2007, hunters could do- nate deer to food shelves but had to pay processing Costs. "The venison donation program has multiple ben- efits," said Leslie Mclnenly, big game program leader for the Minnesota Depart- ment of Natural Resources (DNR). "In portions of the state, hunters are encour- aged to harvest multiple deer, the program pro- vides hunters an avenue to donate the extra deer they harvest without having to pay processing costs. De- mand for food assistance also has been increasing in recent years across Min- nesota, and this is a great opportunity to provide locally-sourced meat to families in need." More details on the veni- son donation program, as well as a list of participat- ing meat processors, are available online at www. donation. Processors who accept deer are paid $70 to process each animal for food shelf distribution. Funding for the program comes from surcharges placed on antlerless per- mits and non-resident hunting licenses. To donate a deer, hunt- ers will need to adhere to the following guidelines: Only whole carcasses with the hide on can be donated because proces- sors will not accept cut and wrapped meat or por- tions of carcasses. Information such as per- mit area of harvest and the DNR number will be collected for tracking pur- poses. Processors can only ac- cept carcasses for dona- tion that are free from signs of illness, free of vis- ible decomposition or con- tamination and properly identified with a Minneso- ta DNR registration tag. Processors will reject deer for the donation pro- gram that appear to have been mishandled in any way. Hunters are strongly advised to contact the pro- cessor prior to donating the deer. A list of proces- sors who accept deer for the program is available online at http://go.usa. gov/WDk3.
