Same old story: more need than money

The good news is that state and federal officials, coming out of a recessive economy, are starting to focus on the ever-growing needs of aging and insufficient infrastructure across our nation.
The bad news is that the state and federal officials still don’t know where they are going to scrape up the money to fix all our needs.

Thanks for appreciating military veterans

To the Editor:
As a vet, I want to thank America for becoming more aware and appreciative of the service its veterans have given to it.
This has not always been the case, as many of the older vets can tell you. Finally, we can be openly proud of serving our country, and it is a good feeling.
Thank you for allowing us to openly show our pride and not be criticized for doing so. Thank you for your recognition.

Senators hear pitches on Morningside, Hwy. 212

The Minnesota Senate Capital Investment Committee heard pitches for both the completion of Morningside in Glencoe and improvements to Highway 212 at a bonding tour stop in Hutchinson Thursday.
Chairman of the committee, Sen. LeRoy Stumpf, said there is a new focus on the importance of infrastructure in the state.
Unfortunately, Stumpf said, there isn’t enough money to fund all the requests coming to the committee. There has been $3.5 billion in requests so far, three times as much as the money that has been budgeted for bonding.
