"I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy the rest of your life." — Rita Rudner "People say you can't live without love, but I think oxygen is more important." — Anonymous Ed and Helen Jane Morrison have always appreciated a good joke, which might explain, at least in part, why they retained my services as editor of The Morris Sun and Tribune for over five years.

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.
