Liberals have questionable special-interest groups, too

To the Editor:
Reading Jan Conner’s letter last week, I was surprised she neglected to include Alliance for a Better Minnesota in her list of groups with nice-sounding names that are allegedly promoting ulterior motives.

Engelmann Dairy named county farm family of the year

Roger and Peggy Engelmann and their 15 employees manage a 550-head dairy herd, run over 3,500 acres of cropland and help their sons with their 1,200 cows at another farm near Waverly, as well as a heifer facility east of Winsted.
But Roger Engelmann said he doesn’t feel like he works too hard.
“What’s that saying? If you love your job it isn’t work? Something like that,” said Roger Engelmann. “I really enjoy what I do.”

From wastewater to de-icer

You may have made a brine for your Thanksgiving turkey, but what about deicing your driveway?
The Glencoe City Council heard a proposal by Karen Cavett, of Short Elliot and Hendrickson (SEH), to turn the brine from the city’s wastewater into a solution to de-ice streets and help with dust control for gravel alleys.
The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) has set a standard for how much chloride can be in wastewater. Preliminary reports indicate that Glencoe’s rates of chloride in the wastewater exceed the 234 milligrams per liter standard.
