Blue Earth County: Missing elderly man believed drowned

(Mankato, MN) – The case of a missing elderly man whose car was found unoccupied […]

(Mankato, MN) – The case of a missing elderly man whose car was found unoccupied near a drainage ditch  has been classified as a probable drowning by Blue Earth County officials.

In a press release, Captain Paul Barta said 92-year-old Marvin Borkenhagen of rural Amboy was reported missing at 6:36 p.m. yesterday by a witness who saw his vehicle parked by a drainage ditch at County Road 32 and County Road 144 in Pleasant Mound Township.

People familiar to Borkenhagen told police the missing man will occasionally free ice and debris from a field culvert that feeds into the drainage ditch.  A tool he commonly used was found in the water near the opening of the culvert and his car parked in close proximity, according to the release.

A ground search with assistance from the Minnesota State Patrol’s helicopter was done, but search operations were suspended overnight and resumed early this morning.  Police say Borkenhagen was still missing as of 5 p.m. Friday.

The drainage ditch – approximately 10 years wide –  eventually joins with Willow Creek.  Water was estimated to be roughly 8 feet deep.  Barta described the water flow during search efforts as a “steady rate.”

The search is ongoing.  Assisting the Blue Earth County Sheriff’s office was the Lewisville Fire Department, Minnesota State Patrol, and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

New Highway 14/15 Gateway detour possible by mid-April

(Mankato, MN) – The Minnesota Department of Transporation says the schedule of the Highway 14/15 […]

(Mankato, MN) – The Minnesota Department of Transporation says the schedule of the Highway 14/15 Gateway project has been impacted by weather, but completion is still scheduled for fall and a new detour could be in place by mid-April.

MnDOT said in a press release that construction crews of been adapting plans so the fall completion date can be met.

Although the wicked winter weather hindered work on the Minnesota River Bridge, two piers on the west end were completed, and progress was made on two others, according to the release.

Construction on the Highway 14/15 interchange is actually ahead of schedule, says MNDOT, and crews will focus on intersecting roadways as soon as a detour can be implemented.  The new detour will consist of Fort Road (County Road 5) and Nicollet County Road 12 and 21, as County Road 12 is experiencing flooding north of Highway 14.

“At this point, all plans are weather dependent,” said Todd Kjolstad, construction supervisor.  “We are closely watching flooding on Highway 14 near the new interchange, as well as potential flooding on the detour routes.”

The Gateway project addresses intersection safety, aging bridges, poor pavement conditions, and occasional road flooding around New Ulm.  Construction began in 2017, but a majority of the work and detours were first implemented in 2018.

State board takes disciplinary action against Mankato, Waseca vet clinic owner

(Mankato, MN) – The Minnesota Board of Veterinary Medicine has issued a long list of […]

(Mankato, MN) – The Minnesota Board of Veterinary Medicine has issued a long list of findings and disciplinary actions against a veterinarian who practices in both Waseca and Mankato.

Dr. James D. Rundquist, owner of Premier Veterinary Center, met with the board’s Complaint Review Committee on June 4, 2018 to discuss the multiple allegations made against his practice.

According to the findings:

  • In December 2017, Rundquist performed an ovariohysterectomy on three cats.  He neglected to provide discharge instructions for postoperative care.  One of the cat’s abdominal incision separated the evening following surgery.  An emergency appointment at another vet office was required to repair the incision.  The other two cats development infected at the surgical sites.
  • In January 2018, Rundquist performed a castration on a 1 1/2-year-old dog.  The surgical incision failed after the dog was discharged, and Rundquist didn’t recommend restitching the incision.
  • In April 2018, Rundquist performed an ovariohysterectomy on a cat which became infected and required an additional surgical procedure at another clinic.
  • Rundquist’s patient medical records were incomplete and lacked a complete history, all examination findings, medications dispensed, treatment and anesthesia reports.

In February 2018, Premiere Veterinary Center was inspected by a board member and an investigator with the Office of the Attorney General.  The inspection unearthed “multiple deficiencies,” according to the report, which included expired medications, insufficient controlled-substance logs, outdated fluids, catheters, and syringes, a torn protective radiation apron, and dirty kennels in disrepair.

Jim Rundquist

Rudquist did not respond to a March 2018 letter from the board which required him to immediately remediate the issues and respond within 30 days.

In April 2018, Premiere Veterinary Center was re-inspected.  The investigation concluded that Rundquist had “failed to remedy the majority of the deficiencies identified during the prior inspection.”

During the meeting, Rundquist admitted to several discrepancies, including reuse of surgical instruments on subsequent same-day surgeries, and failure to use sterile attire for major surgeries.

The board ordered Rundquist’s license suspension stayed, but he is required to meet a number of conditions.  Rundquist must submit documentation of his veterinary continuing education.  He is required to hire a clinic sanitation expert to perform an inspection of the Mankato clinic and must complete continuing education on medical records, surgical techniques, and pain management.  He’s also ordered to observe two hours of surgeries.

If Rundquist fails to comply with the order, the board can take further action, including suspending his license.

Two Pemberton men arrested on felony drug sale charges

(Mankato, MN) – Two Pemberton men face felony drug charges after a traffic stop on Highway 83.

Thirty-four-year-old Billy Joe Walters and Justin Blane Mortensen, 25 were each charged in Blue Earth County Court with felony 1st and 2nd-degree drug sales.

According to the criminal complaint, police conducted a traffic stop on March 17 on a vehicle driven by Walters.  Mortensen was the passenger.  Walters told police he didn’t know who the owner of the vehicle was, and could not provide officers with proof of insurance.  Police noticed the stereo in the vehicle was missing and wires were hanging out. Walters said a man in jail asked him to store the vehicle, but law enforcement couldn’t confirm his claim and had the vehicle towed, according to the complaint.

During a search of the vehicle, police found: five baggies containing 37.2 grams of meth, two baggies of 19.1 grams of a brown substance believed to be a “speedball,” two baggies containing marijuana, a bag of eight Provigil pills, two glass pipes, a scale, and a large amount of brand new micro baggies, according to the complaint.

A speedball, according to the police report, is a mixture of drugs, commonly made up of methamphetamine, heroin pills, and fentanyl.

Walters and Mortensen were arrested and booked in the Blue Earth County Jail.

Walters has a previous controlled substance conviction.

Mortensen was charged in January with drug sale and assault charges after he allegedly forced a teen girl to ingest coke by jabbing her repeatedly in the leg with a knife.

Garden City flooding: “You just roll with it and do what you gotta do.” (Pics)

(Mankato, MN) – Jeanne Williams stands outside her house still shaking her head as she surveys the damage caused Tuesday night by the flooding Watonwan River.

“It just came on…just quick,” she says.  “We’ve had water on our yard before, but everything happened so quick.”

Willams’ property on Washington Street runs up to the Watonwan River, which was plugged by a massive ice dam that rerouted the rushing river waters into the north side of the city.  Several residents had to be rescued by airboats.

Garden City Flooding – March 19, 2019 – Watonwan River“When the jam got stuck here, it just came around and ended up coming down our street,” Williams said, pointing to Mill Street, which is where the family of three accesses their driveway.  “The river had waves up to here,” she said, gesturing waist-high with her hand.

Garden City Flooding – Mill Street – March 19, 2019

The ebbs and flows of the Watonwan waters came close to the Williams home at certain times, Jeanne said.  “I’d say up to about maybe 15-20 feet away, depending upon when the ice jam hit, and how far it would flood back until it would let go again, and then it would jam up again.”

Willams says she’s busy and it’s a stressful time, but, she says, you just deal with it.   “You just roll with it and do what you gotta do…and deal with it as it comes.”

Luckily for the Willams family and a majority of their neighbors, they’re covered by flood insurance.  She worried about one neighbor, who had purchased insurance but was two weeks shy of fulfilling the required waiting period.

Garden City Flooding from the Watonwan River – March 19, 2019

Garden City isn’t the only southern Minnesota community dealing with flooding concerns.  Brown County earlier this week announced they would hand out free flood cleanup kits and sandbags to residents as New Ulm keeps a wary eye on the swelling Minnesota River.  The Cottonwood River has already flooded, and ice dams doubled the depth of the river practically overnight.  The Cottonwood is also a flood threat at Springfield, where city officials announced yesterday that they’d closed access to Riverside Park.  And in St. Peter, MnDOT closed the Highway 99 bridge at the Minnesota River.

Despite the damage to her property and the months of cleanup ahead, Williams is “dealing with it” with some cheerful humor.  “I’ve got a little courage right here,” she laughed holding up a box of wine.
