Reduced blood-pressure screenings questioned by Newton seniors
Audio player code: In this week’s conversation with Cathy Wurzer, University of Minnesota Climatologist Mark Seeley offered details of October’s weather.

Mean temperatures for the month ranged from plus or minus 1 degrees of normal among most observers. Extreme temperatures for the month ranged from 8 degrees F at Camp Norris in Lake of the Woods County (Oct 29) to 86 degrees F at Madison in Lac QuiParle County (Oct 1).” Seeley says he was surprised by a recommendation from the Mayo Clinic’s Dr. Sheldon Sheps.

The number of clinics was initially maintained, but the amount of time each was available was reduced. Despite the change, there still wasnt much of a demand, she said. “It was shockingly underutilized, although I do understand how it has felt like a huge loss to those who counted on it,” said Zaleznik. Clinics were once held for eight hours a week at the library, American Legion Post 440, City Hall and the Senior Center.
