America, do you think you "stand a prayer" in your fight against terrorism while continuing your present course? The direction the US is taking can be compared to the person who was so fearful of dying that he committed suicide. Victor Kern Wadena, Minn.

"All of us came together on this project, Minnesota Moose Collaborative, to do what we know would work for one element to improve the moose's existence: improving habitat," President Mark Johnson of the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association said. The $3 million the organization has received is being used to clear areas of forest of brush, some of which was 20 feet tall, to make way for better grazing areas.
ST. PAUL -- The "legacy amendment" usually is blended with other money to fund nearly 10,000 projects around Minnesota. One of the most complex projects fell on the shoulders of Myron Jesme, Red Lake Watershed District director in northwestern Minnesota, to implement.

They cleared the land, grubbed stumps, and drained the swamps of Minnesota as diligently as did its native sons. According to records, some 58 percent of all the immigrants passing through Ellis Island in 1900 claimed to be heading to Minnesota. My father-in-law, Sigverd (Siggie) Pearson, was one of them. Crossing the North Atlantic in early May was never easy or safe.
