A season that began with so much promise ended in disappointment for Morris Legion baseball team. Morris, which began the season 6-1, lost twice to Wheaton on Sunday and were eliminated from the District 7 playoffs in Wheaton. Morris ended the season 8-7 overall. Morris defeated Wheaton 5-0 on pitcher Chase Rambow's three-hitter on Saturday, but Wheaton rebounded to win 9-5 and 10-0 on Sunday to take the best-of-three series. Morris' skid began two weeks ago when it lost two regular-season games to Wheaton, then dropped a doubleheader in Fargo. The Legion recovered with a 12-2 win over Br

by Dennis Prager I believe the Left has been wrong on virtually every great moral issue in the last 30 years. During that period, it was wrong on the Cold War -- it devoted far more energy to fighting anti-communism than to fighting communism. It was wrong for attacking Israel for its destruction of Saddam Hussein's nuclear reactor. It was wrong on welfare. It was wrong in its demanding less morally and intellectually from black Americans than from all other Americans. It was wrong in advocating bilingual education for children of immigrants. It was wrong in generally holding American s
By Kathy Ozer A New York dairy farmer had 16 inches of water flowing through his barn, even as a Wisconsin dairy farmer chalked up another day without a drop of rain since May, all while more than seven inches fell in a 24-hour period on our nation's capitol in June. Was this downpour enough to make our politicians feel some slight empathy for what our farmers are facing after a series of natural disasters? We'll see when the Agriculture appropriations bill comes to the Senate floor in late July.
By Donald Kaul I see by the paper that things aren't going too well in Iraq. They keep blowing each other up over there. Last week, over a three-day period, more than 100 Iraqis were killed and many hundreds more injured. If this is what they call democracy, maybe they should try something else. The upshot of it all is that if we want to settle down that country, we're probably going to have to send over more troops; even General Casey, the American commander in Iraq, says so. Meanwhile, in North Korea they set off rocket tests---seven of them---despite the fact we warned them not to.
Liberals want Bush to look bad There seems to be endless harping by liberals that our troops should get out of Iraq, and "arm chair generals" keep insisting our troops must leave. They claim to support our troops but they certainly are not doing so by wanting us to cut and run. If people would only listen to the troops who come back from Iraq, they would know that even the troops want us to stay the course and finish the job, which I have also heard parents of troops killed in Iraq say.
The House Agriculture Committee held a hearing in Marshall, Minn. this past weekend. Fifteen U. S. Representatives attended, including Collin Peterson and Gil Gutknecht of Minnesota, along with folks from South Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Louisiana and Washington. The hearing was designed for the committee to hear what folks think should be included in the 2007 Farm Bill. This was the tenth field hearing the committee has held. I attended this hearing, mostly out of curiousity. I've seen these kinds of proceedings on CSPAN and wondered what it was like in person.
The Design Morris! Commercial Corridors Landscaping Project grant has been approved by the Minnesota Department of Transportation. The project will beautify area highway entrances and corridors by allowing the planting of extra-hardy trees and shrubs chosen for low maintenance, spring flowers, fall leaf color, and winter interest.
