canadian smoke

A haze is once again expected to descend upon Todd county and most of northern Minnesota this upcoming weekend. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency on Thursday afternoon issued an air quality alert due to wildfire smoke through noon Sunday, Aug. 19 Daniel Dix, air quality meteorologist with the MPCA, said the wildfire smoke is entering the state from the northwest and is expected to reach the Brainerd lakes area Friday. A large area of Canadian wildfire smoke will move south and east covering much of the northern half of the state by early Friday morning. Air pollution monitors show a rapid rise in fine particles with values exceeding an Air Quality Index (AQI) value of 100 along with weather observations showing visibility dropping to 2-5 miles in this plume of smoke and expected to continue over northern Minnesota. The smoke plume is from fires in British Columbia and Alberta and from wildfires north of Kenora in western Ontario. Periods of smoke are expected to remain in this area through Sunday morning. During this time, fine particle pollution is expected to remain at or above a level that is considered unhealthy for sensitive groups. By Saturday afternoon winds will begin to decrease the transport of smoke into the affected region. The southern half of Minnesota will be monitored for an air quality alert Friday night into Saturday.

SAUK CENTRE — A nursing assistant took $980 belonging to a resident at Getty Street Assisted Living in Sauk Centre according to an investigation by the Minnesota Department of Health and a Stearns County Statement of Probable Cause. 31 year old Amelia Story has been charged with one felony count on suspicion of fraudulent transactions with a debit card.Story is not named in the April Department of Health report, but the details of the incident are the same in court documents and Department of Health documents.Both describe a Getty Street Assisted Living staff person who used a client's debit card twice in October 2017. According to the Department of Health, the staffer also borrowed $20 from another client. "Based on a preponderance of evidence, financial exploitation occurred," according to the public Office of Health Facility Complaints Investigative Report. The first client reported a missing debit card to the assisted living Administrator Mary Jo Marthaler in November 2017. Marthaler canceled the card, asked for a financial statement and called police about the matter, according to the state report.Story was fired after police found footage of the Sauk Centre woman at the ATM at times that aligned with the client's bank statement. In April, Story pleaded not guilty to the charge in Stearns County court, according to the court record. She has a settlement conference scheduled for the end of the month.
