Stop MPCA from enforcing archaic law on waste disposal

Using reasoning that defies logic, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) seems hell-bent on resurrecting a decades-old, and long-dormant, state statute on solid waste disposal that now makes little or no sense — unless you are a politician.
The state Legislature needs to repeal this archaic statute soon before the MPCA does any more harm. But it seems that blatant politics is getting in the way of today’s reality.

There's a bigger problem than Obamacare!

There are many things a county, city or state can do for itself. And there are things which need the federal government to handle. Most of us fight to limit what the federal government does, but we also are willing to close ranks and offer a united front when the federal government fails to take its turn at the plate and do what needs to be done.
A case in point: Storage of radioactive waste from nuclear plants. The issue came up: Where would the spent rods be stored?

Chapter appreciates attendance at Glencoe Fly-In in August

To the Editor:
Our chapter wishes to convey a great appreciation to all of those people who chose to honor us with their attendance at our 2012 Fly-In that was held on Saturday, Aug. 25. The weather was far from perfect, but many, many people chose to come out and attend our annual event.
Fortunately, the World War II War Bird aircraft (T6 Texan) was able to come early, before the showers. They provided a thrill with their formation flying as well as their formation take off and departure.
