America’s New Class - The Expendables

By Reed Anfinson

Swift County Monitor-News

While giving a speech Sept. 9, 2016, Democratic candidate for president Hillary Clinton had one of the more memorable moments of her campaign. It wasn’t a good one.

In speaking about then Republican candidate Donald Trump’s followers, she described them as a “basket of deplorables.” She saw them as “racist, sexist, homophobic, and xenophobic.” Acknowledging the storm of criticism for those remarks, she amended her comment to say only “half” of his followers were in this deplorable camp. It was a comment that further entrenched her unfavorable ratings.

Now we are seeing our president and some of his followers creating a new class of people in America – The Expendables. They are people 65 and older, as well as those with underlying conditions making them more vulnerable to the ravages of the coronavirus – diabetes, lung disease, asthma, or a compromised immune system.

COVID-19 creates challenges for county sheriff’s office

By Reed Anfinson

Swift County Monitor-News

When the coronavirus started spreading around the country, Swift County’s community fire departments asked Sheriff John Holtz to issue a burning ban.

“Basically, that was to limit any unnecessary calls for the departments to have to respond to,” he told the Swift County Board of Commissioners at their May 4 meeting. “That would limit cross contamination from too many people in a truck.”  That ban has now been lifted, he said.

While the ban has been lifted, fire departments in the Benson area have been called to three fires in the past two weeks. There were two grass fires this past Friday, one south of Swift Falls, and the other just west of Lake John north of Benson. There was a pine woods fire in Langhei Township north of Benson April 27...

During a controlled burn on Conservation Reserve Program land near his home south of Swift Falls Friday morning, landowner Steve Svor was severely burned. He was airlifted from Swift County-Benson Health Services to the Hennepin County Burn Center where he is reported to be in serious condition.

According to a report by the family, Svor had already burned two fields without problems. During the burn of the third field he was riding on the tailgate of a pickup torching the grass. The bumpiness of the field caused him to lose his balance and fall out of the pickup into the flames.

Though he tried to get up off the ground and away from the flames, he couldn’t, the family’s report said...

With elective surgeries and most outpatient services shut down for more than two months, Swift County-Benson Health Services saw 80 percent of its sources of revenue go away. Those revenues were earned through elective surgeries and outpatient services.

As it saw a dramatic reduction in its income, SCBHS was doing its best to retain staff rather than laying them off . SCBHS employs 120 people with a 2019 payroll of $5.7 million.

Now financial help has arrived for the local hospital and clinic in the form of federal program financing...

Graduation plans must change again

By Reed Anfinson

Swift County Monitor-News

After making plans to conduct Benson High School’s graduation ceremony at the football field administrators are having to look for a new venue for the Class of 2020.

Minnesota essentially banned large-scale high school and college graduation ceremonies for the class of 2020 last Friday due out of concern that they would lead to gatherings where the deadly coronavirus could spread.

The Minnesota Department of Education and the Office of Higher Education issued guidance saying indoor graduations and ceremonies held outside in stadiums and on football fields are not permitted. The agencies are encouraging schools to hold online events instead.
Gov. Tim Walz, a former high school teacher, called it a painful decision but said he must rely on what the health experts are telling him.
