__Around the Area Winthrop News Wednesday, March14,2o12opage8 Z'] rea News With enough private money, Cologne will get fishing pier If enough privately raised money and labor is avail- able about $4,700 is needed for Cologne's Benton Lake will receive a new 58-foot fishing pier. Citizens in the Benton Lake Watershed Conservancy are promoting the proposed pier. Without volunteer help, the project will cost about $20,250 most of which covers the cost of creating parking space and clearing access to the pier. The Cologne City Council recently reviewed the proposed budget for the project. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will donate a $7,500 pier. To receive the pier, access to it must com- ply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Creating parking space and clearing away small trees covers much of the additional costs. Other existing funding includes a $5,000 active living grant, $2,500 from the city for community improvements and a $2,500 DNR grant. The council is hoping the conver- sancy and private groups will be able to generate enough donated money to make the project work finan- cially. -Belle Plaine Herald Car strikes a falling tree A car struck a falling tree along Faxon Road five miles west of Belle Plaine at 6:43 am on Wednesday, Feb. 29, according to the Sibley County Sheriff's Department.

Donnay, who volunteers at the school every day, received a $50 gift card from Cenex for fuel as part of its Tanks for Thanks program. The students presented thank you cards to Donnay at the conclusion of the spe- cial assembly. "She is so deserving for generously and selflessly giving of her time to our school everyday,: said GICS Co=Directors Terry Kroehler and Julie Grams. "She volunteers at our school for whatever we need. She is usually there every morning before the teachers arrive and sometimes stays after school to fin- ish up projects she is working on. She is truly amazing and our school would not be the same without her." -Arlington Enterprise Glencoe man seriously injured in accident Glencoe businessman Mark Jungclaus, 54, was seriously injured in a snowmobile accident on Gull Lake on March 4, when his snowmobile hit an ice heave.

Renville County Deputy Sheriff Doug Best received the award and was amongst other police officers, prosecutors and judges honored at MADD's awards ceremony, which was held at the Science Museum of Minnesota. The "MADD Hero" award is given to a law enforcement agency, group or individual who has made a significant contribution toward getting drugged drivers off our roadways. Driving under the influence no longer simply refers to driving drunk, and while the substances being used may be different, the cost of such actions remain the same needless deaths and injuries. Deputy Doug Best was nominated for the award by Renville County Sheriff Scott Hable. -Renville County Register Local makes a donation to the Gibbon Fire Department When Steve Herschman was selected to choose a civic organization to make a contribution of $2,500 through a program at Monsanto, Herschman knew right away where the money would go.
