Millions of Americans are dealing with mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, bipolar disorder and other illnesses.
It’s difficult enough to cope with those problems, seek treatment and try to get on the road to recovery, but other factors make it even harder.
Can something be exhausting and exhilarating at the same time? Frustrating yet fulfilling? Puff you up with pride while deflating you with defeat?
Yes. At least that’s what I found out while competing in the Rock ‘n Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon on December 2.
Have you received a call lately from someone asking you about Medicare, Social Security or supplemental insurance?
Beware. It could be a scam. The caller may be trying to trick you into disclosing private financial information.
If you’re not buckling up each and every time you get inside a vehicle, consider this:
Eight of Minnesota’s first 10 motorists who died in motor vehicle crashes in 2012 were not wearing a seat belt, according to preliminary reports from the Minnesota Department of Public Safety (DPS) Office of Traffic Safety.
Why should I subscribe to the newspaper when I can go to its website and get the news?
That’s a question we hear time and time again and while we appreciate the visits to our website, there are still plenty of reasons to get the printed version of the paper.
Recent glitches at stoplights in Alexandria, such as the one at County Roads 82 and 22, have tested drivers’ knowledge of what to do when approaching a malfunctioning light that’s blinking red. Too many have flunked the test by sailing right through the intersection without stopping.
In an effort to cut costs, some school boards, county boards and city councils in Minnesota are pressuring legislators to allow them to put public notices on their own websites instead of paying to print them in a newspaper.
This would be a huge disservice to the public.
Are you paying your fair share of taxes?
If you’re in the middle and lower income bracket, the answer is yes.
If you’re making more money than most people in Minnesota – a household income of more than $130,000 – the answer is no.
At least that’s what can be gleaned from the Minnesota Department of Revenue’s 2011 Minnesota Tax Incidence Study that was released Wednesday, based on tax year 2008 data and the November 2010 forecast.
Imagine feeding not just your family but 144 hungry people every day.
American farmers don’t have to imagine it. They’re doing it. And this week is their turn to take a much-deserved spotlight.
Governor Mark Dayton has proclaimed March 13-19 as Minnesota Agriculture Week.
