Brad Meyer will end his tenure on Dec. 22
WORTHINGTON — Four months after Nobles County commissioners began eyeing a potential public health department merger — a move that would result in the elimination of the agency’s director — Brad Meyer has submitted his resignation.
Worthington native establishes minature farm in Minneapolis
MINNEAPOLIS — Three decades ago, Stefan Meyer was a young kid experiencing life on the family’s corn, soybean and turkey growing operation just outside of Worthington.
ADRIAN — Adrian girls’ basketball coach Randy Strand said Karli Meyer looked like a wounded “war veteran.” Senior guard Sam Lynn said Meyer resembled “a mummy.” Meyer said it looked like she was “wearing a turban.”
Agency director responds to claims public health needed more room
LUVERNE — When Nobles County Commissioners accepted the $153,426 low bid for the Nobles County Government Center third floor remodeling project a week ago, several commissioners said the project was necessary due to a lack of space in the Nobles-Rock Community Health Services offices.
WORTHINGTON — The scar on Jeff Meyer’s head stretches eight inches, from the top of his left temple and across his forehead to his right ear.
Meyer said the cancerous tumor removed from his brain May 21 was about the size of “a little smoky weenie” and that, after the five-hour surgery, he looked as if someone had placed “a huge nightcrawler” that stuck up “a quarter-inch” on top of his head.
Doctors used four titanium screws to reattach to his skull a bone that was removed from Meyer’s forehead to allow them access to the brain. He then suffered through 31 chemotherapy treatments, most of which lasted 25 minutes, while wearing a mask that was bolted to the table underneath him.
In many ways, the pain and suffering that Meyer, 48, endured over the past five months can be measured.
In many ways, his heart, strength, will and dedication cannot. But, in just over six miles and in less than an hour last Saturday, Meyer proved his resiliency, determination and success.
