Relay for Life
On June 1, the Emmet County Relay for Life Committee hosted a mini-relay for pre-kindergarten through third graders at the Estherville Lincoln Central High School Track. This was the first year for the mini-relay and 29 kids participated. They were educated on the four topics about cancer awareness-nutrition, tobacco-free, sun safety and physical exercise.
Concerning nutrition, information was shared on fruits and vegetables and healthy eating. They were served a snack mix of Cheerios, Crispix, raisins, M&Ms and pretzels with a glass of water.
In the tobacco-free session they learned how harmful tar is to health.
Sun safety was to lather up (sunscreen), cover up (keep skin covered) wrap around (sunglasses) and wear a hat. The four steps are to keep yourself from developing skin cancer. The physical exercise included games of running and playing to let kids know that it is part of keeping healthy.
Editor’s note: This is the second year for the Relay for Life Fun/Run. It starts at 9:30 a.m. Saturday morning at the corner of Sixth Street and First Avenue North.

To the EDN:
We had a little girl’s three wheeled scooter stollen from our yard at 109 N 12th Street, Estherville on the night of 5/31/09. The scooter is pink and white and meant a lot to our five year old daughter as it was a Christmas gift. I did contact the police but I don’t know if that will help any. I would just like for the person whom took it to have a heart and please return it to our little girl. Why are some people just so inconsiderate?
