SCBH board votes to reinstate obstetric services

Babies will once again be delivered at the Swift County-Benson Hospital when all the necessary pieces fall into place to ensure a safe environment for obstetric services.
At their meeting Monday night, the SCBH governing board voted 8 to 1 to proceed with the steps necessary to allow for deliveries.
While the equipment purchases and facility renovations necessary for obstetric services can be in place in a relatively short time, it could take as long as eight to nine months to have the hospital staff trained to the level required.
SCBH Director of Nursing Mellissa McGinty Thompson told the board that the nursing staff at the hospital needs to be trained in the skills that will allow them to assist with deliveries, care for mothers and newborns.
Over the next several months, eight nurses at SCBH will do four-week rotations at Rice Memorial Hospital in Willmar working in OB services.

Fabric shelters need to be gone by May 1

Last October, the Benson City Council voted to give property owners in the city who have erected fabric shelters until May 1 to remove the shelters. That deadline is now less than a month away.
At its October meeting, the council voted to send the following letter to city residents with the fabric structures on their property:
“In an effort to improve the conditions of our city, the city council has decided to step up enforcement of its zoning ordinance.
“This letter is being sent to make sure you are aware of one of the provisions of the zoning ordinance, section 154.025 subdivision G(2), which states, “Accessory buildings constructed primarily of canvas, plastic fabric, or other similar non –permanent building materials shall be prohibited.”

BNSF challenges city right to issue tickets

As parents living south of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) tracks were getting ready to pick their children up at the Northside Elementary School, a slow moving train came to a full stop on the tracks.  
It is about 2:40 in the afternoon Thursday.  A heavy wet snow was falling, creating slushy conditions on roads and sidewalks.
The Northside students, children in pre-kindergarten through fourth grade, get out of school at 2:57 p.m. Students at the middle school and high school get out at 3:01 p.m.
As the students grabbed their backpacks and coats, heading for the doors and a ride home, the train still sat blocking the three downtown Benson crossings. The line of cars and trucks backed up on either side of the tracks were now a several blocks long. That line on the north side of the tracks grew longer as departing high school students added their vehicles to it.
