If you are reading this, you probably live in a small town or rural area of the Tenth Judicial District, i.e., the counties of Anoka, Chisago, Isanti, Kanabec, Pine, Sherburne, Washington, and Wright. In Minnesota each year nearly 30,000 (yes, that is thirty thousand) drivers are arrested for drunk driving, many on rural roads. One could reasonably conclude that drunk driving is vastly more prevalent in highly-populated urban areas, but statistics do not bear that out, at least on a national basis.
The Belwin prairie bison release will take place Saturday, June 11, at noon. The public can watch from a parking lot and viewing platform along Division Street in northern Afton. The day begins with family-friendly activities at 11 am. at Lucy Winton Bell Athletic Fields, 15601 Hudson Road., West Lakeland, just south of Interstate 94.
