or submit your ad online at Tippy is a 16 month old puggle mix. She is currently about 16 pounds but is quite skinny from her previous case of neglect. She LOVES her food so she will be putting some weight on in no time! Tippy came from a hoarding case from out of state, she is slowly getting used to a life indoors, as part of the family. She is very shy and timid at this point, but her foster family is working with her and with some time and patience she will make a great companion. She likes to have her own space with a nice bed or blanket where she can cuddle up, especially when she is frightened. Tippy is currently using pads but will be learning to go outside as well. She is good ® with other dogs and has not been tested with cats. Because of her past, it would be best for Tippy if she did not go to a home with small children, they might make her nervous. Tippy is spayed, up to date with shots; heartworm and intestinal parasite free and microchipped. For more information on adopting Tippy or any other dog visit:

Staying with Gordy's Body Shop name a good move for Josh Welke

Gordy Quimby owned and operated Gordy's Body Shop for 40 years before he sold to Josh Welke of Rochester, fresh out of votech and 21 years old. Six years later, June 2012, Josh insists keeping the Gordy's Body Shop name was one of the best business decisions he and his family made. "Gordy had a good reputation and we did not want to change the name," said Josh. Today Josh still has many of Gordy's dedicated customers and feels that is because of the reputation he is building. For the first five years Josh worked long days, nights and weekends by himself with some part time help. He now has a full time employee and his mother

continues to do the bookkeeping. Josh said he is more of a hands on person and not much for doing bookwork. Gordy's does collision work, modification and painting. With an insurance claim a loaner car is available. As the motto on the web site states, "You break them...We fix them!" Josh has liked tinkering with cars since he was a young kid. Working on them sparked his interest in body shop work. After high school his mind was made up to enter that field of work. After vo-tech he worked in two other body shops before purchasing Gordy's. Becoming a business owner not long after attending to vo-tech, Josh says the education continued on the job. He admitted making mistakes and learned from them. It did not happen often, but if a customer had a problem he took care of them when they came back. "I was a green horn," grinned Josh. Today Josh Welke says he has increased his customer base from when he purchased Gordy's Body Shop owner Josh Welke works on the the business. "I like having back quarter panel of a pickup in the shop. Josh was 21 my own hours and dealing when he bought the business from Gordy Quimby and with the people," said Josh. insists he has learned a lot in six years of ownership.

Dodge County Independent, Kasson, MN

Three ways to conserve fuel As costly as gas has become, drivers can still mitigate those costs by employing a few strategies aimed at increasing their driving efficiency. 1. Maintain a consistent speed. If going on a long road trip or if your daily commute involves long stretches of highway driving, rely on your vehicle's cruise control function to make things easier on your engine and conserve fuel. 2. Obey the speed limit. The U.S. Department of Energy notes that drivers pay an additional $0.31 per gallon for every five miles they drive over 60 mph. Drivers would be wise to obey the speed limit and conserve their fuel as well as their money. 3. Don't make your vehicle into a traveling closet. Many drivers keep excess materials in their cars, whether it's a cooler for picnics, a set of golf clubs or an old baby stroller. Excess weight will rear its ugly head at the pump. An extra 100 pounds in a vehicle can reduce its miles per gallon by as much as two percent.
