After going 1-3 in the first UMAC softball crossover at Martin Luther College, the UMM women nearly did a complete turnaround against the same four teams in the second crossover played at Northland College. The complete turnaround would have been 3-1, but those numbers stayed just a bit elusive as the Cougars succumbed to a late rally against Northland College at the end. But the Cougars could feel encouraged making strides over their previous crossover showing. The second crossover was played on April 28-29. UMM went 2-0 in day 1. On day 2, Saturday, St.
Southpaw Craig Knochenmus had great stuff, mixing fastballs and curves to strike out nine batters in six innings, but it wasn't enough for the MAHS baseball cause in the Tuesday game at Chizek Field. This was a night game played amidst rainy and breezy conditions. The breeze was 15-20 MPH, coming in from left-center. A rain delay of 27 minutes was necessitated. The game was a matchup of WCC-South rivals: the Tigers and the Lac qui Parle Eagles. The Tigers were dealt yet another hard-luck loss, 4-2, at the hands of the Eagles.
By Peter Hart and Steve Rendall Weeks after the invasion of Iraq began, Fox News Channel host Brit Hume delivered a scathing speech critiquing the media's supposedly pessimistic assessment of the Iraq War: "The majority of the American media who were in a position to comment upon the progress of the war in the early going, and even after that, got it wrong," Hume complained in an April 2003 speech.

By Ted Kooser A worm in an apple, a maggot in a bone, a person in the world. What might seem an odd assortment of creatures is beautifully interrelated by the Massachusetts poet Pat Schneider. Her poem suggests that each living thing is richly awake to its own particular, limited world. There Is Another Way There is another way to enter an apple: a worm's way. The small, round door closes behind her. The world and all its necessities ripen around her like a room.
Search committee thanks community A big thank-you is due the community for its strong interest and assistance in the process of selecting Jacqueline Johnson as the University of Minnesota, Morris' next chancellor. Each candidate's reception at our beautiful museum was well attended; many people took the time to meet the candidates, ask questions, and give the committee their evaluations. Special thanks are due to Director Randee Hokanson and the staff and volunteers for so graciously making this remarkable facility available.
By Brian Williams Sun Tribune The people of West Central Minnesota are often told that its tough maintaining political clout out here, what with a relatively sparse population. The prairie residents can take heart in how Cal Van Horn of the Morris American Legion Post got elected state commander. He got the nod last July in Moorhead, and on Friday evening he was honored in a testimonial event at the Morris post.
Should permitting and construction proceed according to schedule, by next spring the University of Minnesota, Morris campus will be getting much of its heat -- and, hopefully soon after, its air conditioning -- via a biomass burner. The research project has been planned for several years, but funding from the Minnesota Legislature in 2005 smoothed the way for construction of the plant, estimated to cost between $4.8 million and $5 million. We want to push the envelope on whats possible, said Lowell Rasmussen, UMMs Associate Vice Chancellor for Plant Services and Master Planning.

The University of Minnesota, Morris will hold its commencement ceremony on Saturday and for the first time since I graduated, I'm jealous of the students. How cool is it to graduate from college on Mother's Day weekend? What better gift for Mom than to have her child be at the threshold of achievement with a degree from UMM? Congratulations, by the way, to all 350 students who will receive bachelor's degrees this year.
