2017 Minnesota Traffic Death Toll Surpasses 100 

Since the beginning of the year 103 people have died on Minnesota roads. Donna Berger with the Office of Traffic Safety says, unfortunately, this year seems to be following right in line with long-standing trends. She says that frequently, people are surprised to learn that there are generally more fatalities and serious injury crashes in rural areas than on the more highly-congested metro area roadways. Berger says four main factors continue to contribute to the loss of life; alcohol, distracted driving, speed and un-belted motorists.

Drivers Happy With Stable Gas Prices 

As the summer travel season ramps up, gas prices remain stable across the state. Triple-A Minnesota's Gail Weinholzer says while OPEC did cut production, domestic production has ramped-up helping keep those prices at the pump stable. The average for a gallon of self-service unleaded in Wright County has been running around $2.26.

Wright-Hennepin Donates Tree Seedlings and Nightlights 

Wright-Hennepin Cooperative Electric Association recently donated some 35 hundred tree seedlings to third graders throughout the co-op's service area, as well as donating more than 33 hundred nightlights to youngsters in kindergarten. Wright-Hennepin has donated tree seedlings to local schools through the Plant-A-Tree program since 1997 in order to help replenish the wooded areas of Wright and Hennepin Counties. Company representatives and volunteers from local Boy Scout and Girl Scout groups also planted some 500 trees during the recent annual cleanup day at Lake Maria State Park. Now in the 20th year of spring donations, Wright-Hennepin also encouraged kindergarteners to "go green" by using the free LED nightlights to cut energy consumption.
