Still a chance for a special session?

In the wake of the shooting of police officers in Texas, a mass killing in France and the long-awaited start of the Republican National Convention, the thought of a special leglisative session in Minnesota has faded from our minds.
But apparently, there is a spark of hope that a bonding bill and a transportation bill may yet be passed this summer.

Government could learn from this girl

I saw something the other day that gave me renewed hope. It involved a young girl coming to my front door one afternoon.
Last week, my wife and I were watching TV when someone knocked at the door. My wife answered, and after a few moments asked me to talk to the person.
It turned out to be a young girl, perhaps 9 or 10 years old, with several young bike-riding companions. She was quite upset.

Information on Red Cross RapidPass program

To the Editor:
For those donors who like the convenience of the American Red Cross program, RapidPass is a way for blood donors to complete their pre-reading and donation questions online from the comfort and privacy of their own home or office. RapidPass is only used to complete the pre-reading and pre-donation questionnaire in advance of your appointment; it does not take the place of scheduling an appointment. American Red Cross expects to reduce the time donors with a RapidPass spend at blood drives by up to 15 minutes.

City can afford more hours at the elm site

To the Editor:
Last year, the elm site was open all summer for the convenience of convenience of the contractor rebuilding the Lincoln Park area. Did we have illegal dumping of trash? Yes! And he left his name and phone number with the trash. Was anything done about this illicit dumping? No! Seems the fellow has strong ties with upper city management.

Allen Robeck is honest, friendly, helpful

To the Editor:
Several years ago, I met Mr. Robeck at the city water department. He was honest, helpful and very friendly to me.
Viva La, Allen!
