Heisler Auto Inc. is challenging
MLS-Mohall K-6 students to collect
pop tabs for Ronald McDonald House

All MLS-Mohall students in grades kindergarten through 6th grade are being challenged by Heisler Auto Inc. of Mohall to participate in a pop tab collecting challenge and help Pull for the Ronald McDonald House!

Heisler Auto Inc. will award a pizza party for the winning class. Each class will collect their pop tabs from now until Wednesday, November 26th and the class with the highest WEIGHT in pop tabs will be the winner. The winner will be announced at the Mohall Business Social after the Parade of Lights on Friday, November 28th.

Pop tabs will be collected each month and then weighed by the Heisler Auto Inc. staff and a report will be given to the teachers so the students can see where their class is at in the standings. It takes approximately 1,000 tabs to equal one pound!

Many families travel far from home and spend several weeks or months to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children – a long time to be away or to divide a family. And, for children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having mom and dad close by for love and support. A Ronald McDonald House is that “home-away-from-home” for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost.

The Ronald McDonald Houses are built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal, or where they will lay their head at night to rest. At the Ronald McDonald House they believe that when a child is hospitalized the love and support of family is as powerful as the strongest medicine prescribed.

The Ronald McDonald House recycles the pull tabs off of any aluminum can to help pay for its day to day operating expenses. They receive over $2,000 per year in pull tab revenue. The Ronald McDonald House requests a $10 donation for those staying at the home, but NO ONE is ever turned away for inabilities to pay!

So let’s all do our part as a community and school and help provide an affordable place for sick children and their families to stay while receiving medical treatment. If you wish to donate, please drop off your tabs at Heisler Auto Inc. in Mohall.

All tabs collected will be donated to the Bismarck location of the Ronald McDonald House.

9-1-1 fee increase will appear as
Measure 1 on General Election ballot

The North Dakota General Election will be held on Tuesday, November 4th, 2014. The Renville County Commissioners have placed County Measure Number 1 on the ballot in regards to a 9-1-1 fee increase.

The 9-1-1 fee is assessed on communication lines within Renville County, more commonly referred to as “Phone Lines.” This may include but is not limited to cellular devices, land-line telephones, and voice-over internet protocol systems. Basically, any communication system that can be used to dial 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency. This fee is designed to be the primary funding source for 9-1-1 operations. These operations include 9-1-1 staff and a portion of dispatch salaries, training, outreach, and equipment. The reason for placing this measure on the ballot is the cost of operations and equipment for the 9-1-1 Public Safety Answering Point continues to rise, however, the funding is not growing to match this cost increase.

There has not been an increase in the 9-1-1 fee since 1992, when the 9-1-1 system began. The fee will increase your monthly bill by 50¢ per line, which equates to $6.00 annually.

The ballot verbiage is as follows... “Should the current emergency services communication (9-1-1) fee not to exceed $1.00 per month per “communication connection” (telephone access line, wireless access line, unique voice over internet protocol service connection, or functional equivalent uniquely identifiable by a number, internet address, or other designation) for the operation and maintenance of the 9-1-1 emergency services communications system be increased to a maximum (not to exceed) $1.50 per month?”

Voter approval would allow a fee, not to exceed $1.50 per month per “communication connection” to become effective February 1, 2015, with the revenue dedicated to maintaining and operating the emergency services communication (9-1-1) system as required by State Law.

YES - Means you approve the proposed increase of the fee to $1.50 per month.
NO - Means you do not approve the fee increase and it would remain at $1.00 per month.
