In May, Marcy Dowse stepped in as the interim director of the Humane Society of Goodhue County. The Humane Society had experienced several leadership changes and needed stability for the organization. Dowse, a retired community volunteer, stepped in to take the leadership role. For the last six months she has led the organization including the successful Gala Dinner in October and a more stable financial situation. She has agreed to stay for an additional six months.
I would like to suggest that very serious consideration be given in regards support to the Cannon Valley Trail. Safety and maintenance equipment is very important to the men and women that tend to the trail. An update in facilities at the Welch Trailhead would be most welcome. I am a regular rider on the Cannon Valley Trail. During 2006-2016 inclusively, by my logs, I have ridden on this trail approximately 251 times. The Twin Cities Bicycle Club, of which I am a member, has a regularly scheduled ride every Thursday May through September.
Many thanks to the Red Wing Fire Department, Pierce County Sheriff's Department and my many concerned neighbors and fellow travelers on Wisconsin Highway 35 on Halloween who stopped to render aid after a nearly very serious accident. I was only shaken up and the occupants of the other car suffered a broken rib. I'm not sure about their car, but my pickup is likely totaled.

Are you concerned that health care services are being taken away from you in areas where you live? This seems to be a serious problem throughout our region. This is not the fault of doctors, nurses and all the excellent caregivers. You look no further than to Dr John Noseworthy, Dr. Jeffrey Bolton and anyone else in Mayo Health system's leadership, who has control of the pocketbook, to see where the problem exists. It is profits over patients!
