Steps For Hospice Sunday in Buffalo  

The Community Health Foundation of Wright County will host the second annual Steps For Hospice fundraising walk / run this coming Sunday in Buffalo. The event will be held at Sturges Park in Buffalo to raise funds for the construction of Wright County’s first ever hospice house, which will be built across from Sturges Park near Buffalo Lake. Teams and individuals have been busy in recent months raising pledges for participation in a 5k walk / run that will utilize Sturges Park as a starting and finishing location. The Community Health Foundation’s Laura Jones says the event will be held this Sunday with an early afternoon start time to encourage full participation for families and other volunteers. The foundation hopes funds raised will get them closer to a 1 million dollar goal to be able to get construction underway soon on the facility which will assist area families who are helping a loved one in their final stage of life. The public is welcome to come to the event in support of those walking and running, and to enjoy an afternoon of activities and friendship. Registration for the event will be at 12 noon, with a 1 PM start time for the walk. Same day registration is also available at $30 to walk on Sunday.

Bachmann Critical of Presidential Debt Reduction – Jobs Plan 

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann ripped President Obama’s debt reduction and jobs creation plan while visiting Iowa this week. The 6th District Congresswoman who is seeking the Republican nomination to run for president said Obama’s plan would ruin the U-S economy. Supporters of the Obama plan argue that the strategy Bachmann supports was tried under former President George W. Bush and not only failed to result in adding jobs, it also cut incoming revenue leading to a larger deficit. Bachmann says the president’s call to raise taxes on millionaires shows he does not understand how to turn the economy around.

Child Passenger Safety Week  

Law enforcement officials in Minnesota are using Child Passenger Safety Week to remind parents to properly restrain their kids inside a vehicle.

Statistics show that nearly half the children killed or injured in Minnesota car crashes between 2006 and 2010 were improperly restrained, and Darby says at least two children under the age of 5 have been killed in crashes this year. Darby says putting a child in the wrong restraint is the biggest mistake parents and caregivers make.
