DWI law tightened; Sunday sales loosened

It seems ironic that the same state Legislature that tightened up driving while intoxicated laws also has made it easier to obtain liquor.
Legislators voted to change the legal blood-level limit for gross misdemeanor driving while intoxicated to .16 percent, down from .20. According to a Star Tribune analysis, that could result in 3,000 more gross misdemeanor arrests each year, a 71 percent increase.
According to David Bernstein, chair of the Minnesota DWI Task Force, the change will mostly affect repeat offenders, who have an average .165 blood alcohol content.

My wife and I were walking along 14th Street the other day when we both stopped to watch a “moving rope” cross the street heading north near Ives Avenue. It looked like a rope because the line was ramrod straight … and it was moving!
At its lead was a mother duck and 13 ducklings, marching quickly in unison.

City needs to tend to gravel roads

To the Editor:
When we moved into Brownton 37 years ago, I knew we moved on a gravel road. But the city would take care of it.
About three to four years, gravel would be put on and a road grader brought in to take care of the road. Then they put in road and gutter, saying the road would be blacktopped when the equipment was in town.
Well, houses were built on the south end and north end, whch was blacktopped. I know they were new houses, which get top priority.
