Talks over help for Mille Lacs sputter

Elsewhere on this page, state Sen. Scott Newman, R-Hutchinson, gives constituents an update on various issues that have popped up over the summer.
One of those issues is a proposal by Gov. Mark Dayton to provide up to $20 million in aid to Mille Lacs businesses that are struggling because of a premature end to the walleye season on Lake Mille Lacs.

Update on summer legislative issues

By state Sen. Scott Newman
The following are some issues that have come up over the summer. I thought I would briefly bring you up to date regarding their current status as I understand them to be at this time:
• MSOP: The Minnesota Sex Offender Program (MSOP) has been ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge in a class action suit brought by a number of civilly committed sex offenders. They are claiming they have been civilly (not criminally) incarcerated and held without any chance of ever being released.

Cemetery holding pond will be a real eyesore

To the Editor:
Will someone please tell me why we need to put a holding pond in the middle of our beautiful city cemetery? Also why didn’t anyone seem to know about it until after it has been staked?

Why the big sinkhole in the city cemetery?

To the Editor:
I was at a get-together with friends last week and one of them asked me what I thought of the big hole they were going to dig in the north-central part of the city cemetery, with one end very close to the Lutheran section. He then said it’s all staked out, so go take a look.

A Gold Star for Glencoe mother — 45 years later

A mother’s love never fades or falters. Evelyn Schrupp is proof of that notion. In a ceremony for which she had waited 45 years, Schrupp finally received her mother’s Gold Star — a pin honoring the death of her son in the Vietnam War in 1970 and recognizing her sacrifice.
As Lt. Col. Patrick Cornwell of the National Guard pinned the Gold Star on Schrupp’s VFW Auxiliary vest on Aug. 28, all she said was: “I’ve waited so long for this.”

County Board hears request for barking, loose dog ordinance

The McLeod County Board expressed reluctance Tuesday morning when it was asked to consider an ordinance to regulate barking and loose dogs.
Dale Nowak of rural Silver Lake had sent a letter to commissioners about a possible ordinance, and appeared at Tuesday’s meeting to discuss it.
Nowak said he had a neighbor whose dog had chased people walking on his road. The dog has been contained, but now barks persistently, Nowak said, sometimes up to five hours.
