Farewell to the oldest resident
In case you missed it, last week's Citizen reported that Minnesota's oldest resident, Lena Dick of Mt. Lake, recently passed away.
In her obituary, we learned that Lena became ill at the age of 1 and was not expected to live. Oh, but live she did - another 111 years!

Tragedy waiting to happen
Not long ago, I read a piece about a guy the St. Cloud Times called "the most prolific drunken driver in Minnesota history," Danny Lee Bettcher.
He was recently arrested for the 28th time after leaving a VFW hall in his hometown of New York Mills. According to the Times, Bettcher, 65, was sentenced to more than four years in prison after pleading guilty to felony drunken driving. He will serve nearly three years in prison and, the rest on supervised release.
Upon seeing this story, I'm sure most readers wonder the same thing: How does this happen?
