By Arden Tewksbury When dairy farmers opened their milk checks in late April, many were stunned to find out their advance check for the first 15 days of milk in April was worth only $1.11 per hundredweight (cwt), which is approximately 12 gallons of milk. Considering that the cost of production is between $13 per cwt and $17 per cwt, dairy farmers need a new pricing system. Warnings abounded that this price was coming, but it was hard for dairy farmers to accept the $11.11 as reality until they saw their checks. Unfortunately, some dairy farmers received only $10.68 per cwt.
By Earl Tilford War is nothing but a duel on a larger scale. Countless duels go to make up war, but a picture of it as a whole can be formed by imagining a pair of wrestlers. Each tries through physical force to compel the other to do his will; his immediate aim is to throw his opponent in order to make him incapable of further resistance. - Carl von Clausewitz, On War, page 1. World War IV, a duel between competing world views a total war for cultural, religious, political and economic hegemony has entered a new phase.
By Tammy Swift I saw my nephew graduate last week. It was the first graduation ceremony/party Id attended since my brothers high school commencement in 1992. Before that, I attended the 1986 college graduation of my sister. I still remember sitting in Row 63-ZZ of the arena, squinting to see Bertha amid all the ant-sized graduates scurrying below.
Ashby finds good District 11 choice Some things keep people away from public meetings, such as wind and rain, and an early 8 a.m. call. But not Ashby Republicans. Following a brief introduction, Douglas County Sheriff Bill Ingebrigtsen took the podium, addressing the crowd of supporters and well-wishers, who came to learn more about the opinions of the Republican candidate for the District 11 State Senate seat. The district includes Grant, Todd, Stevens and Douglas counties. Ingebrigtsen believes that government, at all levels, has gotten too big.

By Scott Wente Forum Communications ST. PAUL The Minnesota Legislature hadnt adjourned for the year when lawmakers began predicting how their work will affect the fall elections. Republicans and Democrats alike are calling the 2006 session a success, but ultimately voters will decide that when they go to the polls Nov. 7. Voters will answer another question: Who benefits most following retirement announcements from at least two dozen lawmakers? Seventeen representatives bid farewell to their fellow House members on the final day of the 2006 session.
By Brian Williams Sun Tribune The atmosphere of graduation is generally forward-looking, and there was plenty of that Friday at Morris Area High Schools big event. But the class that passed from the MAHS scene isnt hesitant to admit that remembering the past is important, too. Its right in the motto. Justin Rohloff, the senior class president, recited it as part of his formal remarks for the audience. Remember the rewards of today and promises of tomorrow, Rohloff said.
When Father Nathan Packard was killed in a plane crash in September 2004, Morris physician John Stock was at the scene as assistant Stevens County Coroner. The accident got Stock thinking about the state of law enforcement in the county. Law enforcement personnel were on the scene around the clock, securing and guarding the crash site until aviation investigators arrived. That accident taxed resources more than it should have, Stock said. What happens if we have a tornado in Donnelly or a big fire in Hancock.
