Ambulance Puts the Wraps on Gifts

    The first of four gift wrapping sessions was held on Sunday. Danbury Ambulance members spent the day wrapping gifts for others who don't have the time or desire to wrap gifts.
    "A number of us EMTs really enjoy wrapping gifts, so we thought this would be a good way to make a little money for the ambulance while doing something we enjoy," commented Danbury Ambulance Service Director Molly Petersen. "Personally, I think about how someone will be so excited to receive the gift and I do my best to make it look good. Plus, it's always nice to hear from people how we have reduced their stress load by wrapping their gifts for them."
    Danbury Ambulance Service personnel will again be offering gift wrapping for a small fee (the fancier the gift wrapped, the more the cost) on December 13th (10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.), 16th (noon - 6:00 p.m.), and 17th (8:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.). This year Joe Heidenreich has graciously given them the use of his office for the wrapping sessions.
    "I love the Christmas season and wrapping presents," exclaimed EMT Megan Doty. "Just think, no need to buy wrapping paper or wonder if you still have labels or forget to buy tape! We have it all covered!"
    Service members will also pick up and drop off gifts from residents living in city limits. To arrange a pick up time or arrange a time outside of wrapping hours to drop off gifts, please contact Molly Petersen at 712-420-0954, Kalli Weber at 712-880-2864, Megan Doty at 712-840-0228, or Lynn Buth at 712-893-2160 or email

Burglary Spree Hits Majority of Iowa

Suspect Possibly Now in Woodbury and Monona Counties

    A burglary spree has hit majority of Iowa now, but we are one of the few counties in Iowa that have not been hit by it. He has been north, east, and south of us to this date. It is primarily businesses he focuses on and the burglar is taking mostly cash.
    A black SUV and a blue Chevy pickup have been seen in areas of the burglaries. Please keep an eye out. There are a couple of suspects, but no one has been identified for sure as the responsible party for these.
    Suspect throws a rock through the window to check for alarms, and then will use a pry bar to gain access to the business. There have been over 20 burglaries and no one has caught him. He has hit all other areas but has yet to hit our county. He sticks to the small towns and stays away from the larger cities. He has stolen into the thousands of dollars.
    The suspect is a white male, goatee, glasses and wears a hoodie. He is now here in Woodbury and Monona County! He does not park at the business but walks from a distance and has been increasingly taking his time in the business. He does not hit the same place twice so please watch the other towns - specifically with bars. He takes cash and is good at getting into the machines.

DC Students Add Christmas Charm to Valley Bank Tree

    Tuesday, December 4th was a pretty nice day for a walk. Which was a good thing, as the student body at Danbury Catholic along with staff members took a walk to Valley Bank & Trust in downtown Danbury. The group filled the lobby, and grade by grade they decorated the bare tree with decorations prepared in their classrooms. The children filled with tree with many crafts including snowmen, snowflakes, and stained glass windows.
    To the left, students from Mrs. Friedrichsen's third/fourth grade class hang their snowmen created out of toilet paper rolls.

    This year crafters will be making a Christmas tree shadow box. Displays are available to view at Colbert's Market, Janet's Beauty Shop, First State Bank, and Valley Bank & Trust all in Danbury. The cost to create your own shadow box is just $25 for a small box and $35 for a large box. They will also make a shadow box for you for $35 for the small and $45 for the large.
    If you can't make the craft night but are interested in making a shadow box, the supplies will be available this Thursday between 10:00 and 2:30 at the station. An EMT will be wrapping gifts during that time (for those who have gifts to wrap, bring them to the station) and will be happy to make sure you're on track with this craft while she wraps away.
