I was disappointed to see Governor Dayton once again submit to Senate Democrats by calling a meeting on the Southwest Light Rail project last week. The Southwest Light Rail project has previously failed to pass both the House and the Senate. Not only is the project vastly unpopular in the legislature and amongst the public, but Senator Bakk and Senate Democrats insistence on its passage can be blamed for the derailment of special session talks this year.
Jay McNamar recently stated he was in favor of bringing broadband internet to District12A. While I am certainly glad to hear that, the phrase "a day late and a dollar short" comes to mind. I say this because our elected representatives, Jeff Backer and Torrey Westrom, were not only in favor of bringing home broadband, they have already done it. Through their efforts, State and Federal funding has been allocated for rural broadband.

Stable flies develop as maggots in a wide array of decomposing organic matter, including soiled animal bedding and soiled feed debris that accumulates wherever cattle are confined. The horn fly and face fly develop in fresh cattle dung pats and nowhere else, so they are troublesome to organic herds when pastured.
