To The Editor: It was a little over a year ago on my way to work in the morning. As I was driving out of Red Wing right by the river bottoms, my car suddenly made a load crack and took off the road. No matter what I did, it wouldn't slow down and I hit a tree at 68 mph. The Fire Department responded, and then I was air lifted to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester. I lost the lower portion of my right leg, broke my back in two places and suffered spinal cord damage. I have since that time had several surgeries on my stomach due to the seat belt.

A syringe found Thursday at Colvill Park has triggered the need for public awareness. Derek Yarwood, a 10-year-old from Hager City, was participating in a fishing class at the park when he found a syringe on the shore. He picked it up, thinking it would be a good device to blow up worms, according to his father, Jason Yarwood. This resulted in the needle poking him once in a finger and once in his thumb. "He was scared, because his mother was worried. ... He didn't know why he should be scared," said Yarwood.
