The VA earlier this week reported that a laptop containing the names, Social Security numbers and dates of birth of as many as 26.5 million veterans and some spouses went missing. A VA worker brought the computer home and it was stolen when his place was burglarized. Granted, the VA did a poor job managing the situation, especially waiting 19 days before informing the public that the computer and its data were missing. VA Secretary R.

The kind of educational enthusiasm that drew U.S. Senator Mark Dayton to MAES recently was shown on the morning of Tuesday, May 23. It was very early in the morning indeed, as the 72 fifth graders of MAES assembled behind the school, accompanied by many interested parents and friends to watch the annual model rocketry spectacle called "Project Alpha." The early scheduling is to ensure that any wind would be a minimal problem.
