Historic April blizzard cripples Midwest

By Mimi Larsen
Staff Writer
For the second time in barely a month, the area has experienced what meteorologists called a “bomb cyclone,” a dramatic term for severe blizzard conditions. The northern edge of the system reached into central North Dakota, and covered six states, from the Rocky Mountains into Minnesota. The strongest wind gust of the system was reported in Pueblo, CO, at 107 mph -- the equivalent of sustained winds in a Category 2 hurricane..For more on this story please purchase a copy of this weeks Sisseton Courier on news stands now.

Family Life Assembly of God Church, 404 West Hickory Street, Sisseton, will be holding their Good Friday Service on Apr. 19 at 7:00 p.m. The service will include the “Passion of Christ” drama that will depict the final hours of Jesus’ life as he is tried by the courts and crucified on the cross.

Two Sisseton sites for Drug Take-Back Day on Apr. 27

National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is Saturday, Apr. 27, and two sites in Sisseton will be available to dispose of pills.
On Apr. 27, bring your pills for disposal to the Coteau des Prairies Clinic from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. or to Woodrow Wilson Keeble Memorial Health Care Center Pharmacy from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Sites cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Local data show that 45.9% of all reported suicide attempts in our area since 2011 have been related to a medicine overdose. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards. Take part in this initiative and save lives and the environment!
