This is written after the great editorial entitled “Remembering a dark day in December.” [Echo Press, January 6, 2012] It was expertly written. The mistreatment of Native Americans was an all-out effort to eradicate a race from the face of the earth because of ignorance, not knowing what to do with them, and not being able to control them. So why not rid yourself of the problem once and for all and re-write history books to say they did not exist?
What do you say to a caring community? Donors care what is happening to their friends and neighbors and want to help. The Douglas County Salvation Army Red Kettle bell ringers and the Salvation Army committee can say thank you.
Since the announcement of the KXL delay, TransCanada has agreed to take a look at a costly re-route of the pipeline – despite the State Department finding there is no reason to do so. But the routing really isn’t the problem – the disdain of certain groups for oil is.
Since the new homestead exclusion is calculated on the front end – when tax rates are set, there is no reimbursement to local governments.

In my experience, there are few better ways to spend a day than following a dog, shotgun resting on my shoulder, hunting up the wily ring-necked pheasant. I have hunted pheasants with several friends since our college days, and beginning this Saturday we’ll once again visit our old haunts with our scatterguns and favorite hunting dogs.
It has been a hard pill to swallow but Greater Minnesota cities have come to terms with the budgetary decision to cut over $600 million in property tax relief to cities and counties to balance the budget and end the state government shutdown.
