Should county have uniform mining rules?

At last Wednesday’s meeting of the McLeod County Planning Advisory Commission, the question was raised as to why some conditions — such as hours of operation and reclamation timeframes — can vary on gravel mining pits in the same area.

Figures regarding trail maintenance disputed

To the Editor:
As an avid bicyclist, local elected official, member of the county trail committee, and county taxpayer, I am in tune to the discussions that have taken place regarding development of the Dakota Rail Trail in McLeod County.

By U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar
Grilling hot dogs and corn on the cob, marching in parades, staying up late to watch fireworks light up the night sky — the Fourth of July always reminds us how united we are. We are united in independence. We are united in freedom. We are united in patriotism, our unwavering love of this nation and the people in it.
That’s something to celebrate, even if sometimes it’s easy to forget – with all the partisanship and division we see in this nation we love.
