Third Annual Saving Hearts Run is Oct. 29
This Saturday, Oct. 29, will be the third year for the Saving Hearts Run/Walk, a 5k run/walk that raises money for suicide prevention. Ann Raph, of Emily, was one of the people who got the event started after her nephew, Shane Heyn, took his own life.
“We were sitting in my living room, my two grown children and myself,” Raph said, “and my daughter said ‘I just really feel compelled that we should do something to honor Shane.’”
The discussion led to the idea to hold a walk for suicide prevention, and in 2014 the first event drew just under 100 people. The second year, the event doubled its number of participants with just less than 200. Raph said the event has been moved from the Hallett Center to Cuyuna Range Elementary School in Crosby in order to have room for all the participants. New to the event this year is a silent auction.
Fire at Manhattan Beach Villas
A fire was reported at the Manhattan Beach Villas Sunday morning, Oct. 16, at about 5:30 a.m., Crosslake Police Chief Chip Lohmiller said. Battling the fire took around 100 firefighters and nine fire departments, Lohmiller said.
No one was hurt in the fire. Of the 17 units at the Villas, Lohmiller said 10 units are heavily fire damaged, four have water damage, and the attic area burned throughout all the units.
Marlene Yurek has lived in the Manhattan Beach Villas for nearly 30 years, having purchased one in 1986. She said that two of the units were occupied at the time of the fire, but all the occupants got out safely.
