WILLMAR -- At least three or four times a week Maury Ferden uses his personal vehicle to drive Kandiyohi County residents to medical appointments.

Those trips may be to Willmar, St. Cloud, the Twin Cities or Rochester and involve hundreds of miles and hours of time transporting people who have no other way to the doctor.

Some weeks Ferden makes five or six trips, and during one stretch, he provided rides 14 days in a row.
