Minnesota had the highest voter turnout in the nation in 2000, 2002, and 2004. Consequently, the state's election judges had to work hard to help everyone who turned out to vote. Election judges are the 30,000 people who work in polling places statewide during every state election.
The Detroit Lakes Izzo's VFW baseball team hit a snag in the schedule recently, losing its last five of six games to drop to 2-7 overall. The Izzo's squad picked up its lone win June 10, in DL's home opener against East Grand Forks. Jon Tolbert pitched the complete-game win, allowing just one earned run on three hits and two walks for the 9-3 triumph. Tolbert helped himself at the plate, too, adding two hits and a pair of RBI, which included a sacrifice bunt that led to a four-run fourth frame, to crack the game open. Reed Oistad contributed two hits and three steals.
A question concerning a proper turning method comes up on a regular basis and will be difficult to answer without the use of a diagram, but I will try to explain it the best I can. Situation: We have a two-lane road (north-south) intersecting with a four-lane road (east-west). A car (call it C) northbound on the two-lane (after stopping) crosses the eastbound lanes of the four-lane and then enters the median crossover section of the road. This car wants to go westbound but has to yield to westbound traffic already in the lanes.

Nearly 1.4 million Americans are expected to be diagnosed with cancer in 2006, with more than 23,520 from Minnesota. Many of these patients will spend weeks or months away from home undergoing treatment at cancer centers around the country. The thought of dealing with long-term housing issues or daily travel in addition to the side effects of therapy can be overwhelming. To reduce the financial and emotional burden facing cancer patients and their caregivers, an American Cancer Society Hope Lodge is available near many cancer centers across the country.
Rome wasn't built in a day, as the Detroit Lakes boys' golf team is discovering. The Lakers are progressively building for a potential Section 8-2A title for the future, with the 2006 season just another stepping stone towards that direction. After claiming third in the section meet the last two years, the Lakers finished second to eventual state champions Alexandria. DL did it with a team full of sophomores and only one senior -- that being Mox Gunderson. "Taking second in the section was big," said DL head coach Bob Gorden.
