Discard your unwanted drugs safely year-round at Essentia Health pharmacies
Essentia Health wants to keep unused or expired drugs out of the wrong hands, out of the landfill, and out of our rivers and streams. Anyone can safely and anonymously drop off prescription and over-the-counter medications at any Essentia Health retail pharmacy in the big, bright blue drop-off boxes.
“A big concern of ours now is drugs getting into the wrong hands,” says Tim Cernohous, an Essentia Health pharmacist. “Medications in grandma’s medicine cabinet go missing, and show up inside the walls of a high school.”
It’s not just the crime of stealing and selling drugs that concerns Cernohous and his team, medication mistakes can often occur when there are multiple pill boxes in a medicine cabinet.
Crow Wing County Gets the Green Light to Purchase the Historic Pequot Lakes Fire Tower and Adjoining 40 Acres
October 30, 2018 - Crow Wing County’s purchase of the Historic Pequot Lakes fire tower and surrounding 41.4 acres from the Minnesota DNR has been finalized.
“Yesterday’s reception of the documents that transfers title of the fire tower to the county is a huge step forward,” County Board Chairman Paul Thiede, Pequot Lakes, states. “We can now begin to move toward a process which will eventually see it open to the public.”
Crow Wing County purchased the land and fire tower for one dollar with the intent to renovate and reopen the tower and surrounding site. Improvements will be made with the support of local community organizations, donations and county park dollars. The Pequot Lakes Historical Society, the Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway Association and several local units of government have shown support for the tower since its future came into question. Crow Wing County carries liability insurance and the tower site will fall under its umbrella of coverage.
