FILL THE BOOT -- Emmetsburg firemen Judd Duhn (left) and Mike Harris (right) were among the Emmetsburg Volunteer Firemen that collected funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association on Saturday morning. With boots in hand, firemen manned the intersection at Main and Broadway (Highway 4 and Highway 18) for three hours and visited with motorists. According to Emmetsburg Fire Chief Frank Kliegl, they raised an estimated $2,300. “It turned out really good,” said Kliegl. “This is probably the most money we have raised.” Funds raised through the 2015 Emmetsburg Fill the Boot event builds on decades of research, helping push science to its limits in the search for treatments and cures. --Jane Whitmore photo
