Wright - Cromwell News

The summer seems to be going by pretty fast now. It seems that when there’s only a few weeks until school starts, it goes by even faster. So, with that in mind, if anyone knows of someone who has recently moved into the community with school-aged children, please contact the school to get their children registered for the fall. Call 218-644-3716 ext. 1000, 1001 or 1002. School begins Tuesday, Sept. 4, that’s in only three weeks!
Lake Country Power will host three member appreciation days in picnic style from noon to 2:30 p.m. on Aug. 21 at the Remer Outpost, Aug. 22, at the Cook Outpost and Aug. 23 at the McGregor Outpost. The McGregor outpost is located next to Floe International on Highway 65.
Don’t forget to put the Cromwell Community Harvest Fest on your calendar of events.

The TRIAD group met Aug. 1 in Moose Lake. The sole purpose of TRIAD is to promote senior safety and to reduce the fear of crime that seniors often experience. There were several safety measures discussed, especially flood cleanup and updates. Also the following warning was shared: A 26-year old man decided to have a cup of coffee. He took a cup of water and put it in the microwave to heat it up (something that he had done numerous times before). I am not sure how long he set the timer for, but he wanted to bring the water to a boil. When the timer shut the oven off, he removed the cup from the oven. As he looked into the cup, he noted that the water was not boiling, but suddenly the water in the cup “blew up” into his face. The cup remained intact until he threw it out of his hand, but all the water had flown out into his face due to the buildup of energy. His whole face is blistered and he has first- and second-degree burns to his face, which may leave scarring. He also may have lost partial sight in his left eye. While at the hospital, the doctor who was attending to him stated that this is a fairly common occurrence and water (alone) should never be heated in a microwave oven. If water is heated in this manner, something should be placed in the cup to diffuse the energy such as a wooden stir stick, tea bag, etc., (nothing metal). It is however a much safer choice to boil the water in a tea kettle.
That’s all the news from Lake Remembertovote on Aug.14 and have a great week.
