Page 6 August 4th, 2011 Valley Nmvs &amp; Views Just For the Birds and Birders This picture came to me via my Uncle Bill Jorde, down dere in Texas. He didn't take the picture but came about it somehow on line. One of dem "oh-h-h-h ain't dat cute," shots. Ole and the Nun Ole suffered a serious heart attack while on vacation in Minneapolis and shopping at a store in the Mall of America. The clerks called 911 when they saw him collapse to the floor. The paramedics rushed him to the nearest hospital where he had emergency open heart bypass surgery. He awakened from the surgery to find himself in the care of nuns at the Catholic Hospital he was taken to. A nun was seated next to his bed holding a clip board loaded with several forms and a pen. She asked him how he was going to pay for his treatment. "Do you have health insurance?" she asked. "No health insurance," Ole replied in a raspy voice. The nun asked, "Do you have money in the bank?" Ole replied, "No money in da bank." "Do you have a relative who could help you with the payments, she asked, sounding a little irritated. "I only have a spinster sister. She turned Catholic long ago and became a nun." The nun became agitated and announced loudly, "Nuns are not spinsters! Nuns are married to God." "Veil," Ole replied, "dat's perfect den. You can yust go ahead and send da bill to my brother-in-law.."

While the fine details of the contract dispute are way over my head, I gathered from local interviews that area union workers were more concerned with the large size and the "legalese" wording of the contract, than they were with the money issues. They noted they were uncomfortable with the language of the contract and expressed fear that it threatened job security, as well as substantially increased their costs for health care and short term disability. As a result of the dispute, the workers, who are now legally bound to remain outside the factory grounds are looking forward to an extended period of time without a paycheck. The community has been very supportive of the crews, as well as other unions such as the Teamsters. The Teamsters are about deliveries. As a result of their involvement, deliveries to and from the factories have been affected. UPS will not deliver inside the factory and BSF raft will not enter the factory grounds with their train cars. A large number of extra 1 security guards have been hired by the company. 2 Contract labor provided by Strom Engineering, a 4 firm that specializes in 2 providing contract labor 5 during disputes such at 43 g this, began working here on Monday.

With pre-pile probably delayed until September, due to this summer's unfavorable growing conditions, it could be a fairly long while before the situation is resolved. Until then our local folks, many who have been with the company literally for decades, remain in limbo, without paychecks, while preparations for the harvest, both inside and outside the factory, you would at least think have to be hampered somewhat due to a lack of experienced workers. Obviously, I'm not much of an analyst, but inputs from any and all those involved are welcomed in the days ahead. Just keep it factual and informative, bearing in mind that a large number of us are relatively cheless as to the goings on here and basically need to be spoon fed.

Post Office Closures Village Post Offices would be operated by local businesses, such as pharmacies, grocery stores and other appropriate retailers, and would offer popular postal products and services such as stamps and fiat-rate packaging. "Byworking with third-party retailers, we're creating easier, more convenient access to our products and services when and where our customers want them," Donahoe said. "The Village Post Office will offer another way for us to meet our customers' needs." With 32,000 postal retail offices and more than 70,000 third-party retailers --Approved Postal Providers Continued From Page l -- selling postage stamps and providing expanded access to other postal products and services, customers today have about 100,000 locations across the nation where they can do business with th Postal Service. "The Postal Service of the future will be smaller, leaner and more competitive and it will continue to drive commerce, serve contmities and deliver value," Donahoe added. The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses, and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
