(LeMars) --  A voice comes across the scanner radio indicating there is an emergency at one of LeMars' major employer's facilities.  It talks about a possible ammonia leak. The next thing you hear is the roar of the sirens of fire trucks, ambulances, and law enforcement officials racing to the scene.  Your pulse quickens...your thoughts start to turn to what may have happened, and how bad is it?  That scenerio hopefully will never play itself out, but if it ever should happen, the LeMars Fire and Rescue Department want to be prepared. That's why this coming Wednesday evening the LeMars Fire Department will conduct a simulated training seminar with Dean Foods.  Fire Chief Dave Schipper says its important for everyone involved to be familiar with the facilities.

Schipper says Dean Foods contributed $10,000 to the LeMars Fire Department for the purchase and upgrade of Hazardous Materials equipment.  The exercise is meant to help the Fire and Rescue crews get accustomed to equipment that they don't use on an everyday basis.

Sioux City will be assisting in the training seminar with their Hazardous Materials truck and crew on hand for the exercises.  Schipper says he knows the public will be curious about the training session, especially when they see so many trucks surround the Dean Foods building, but he respectfully requests the public stand back and not interupt the training.

 

(Paullina) -- There is an adage that says rain makes grain.  With last evening's half inch of rain reported in LeMars, area corn growers will no doubt benefit.   Paullina farmer Bruce Rohwer says his corn is looking good, but a shower was needed.  He says although reproduction has already occured, a rain will still help fill the kernels on the ear.
