For Bob Baker and Dave Malburg, the mattress business has been booming. With backgrounds in sales and the furniture business, the duo has opened a new kind of wholesale/retail mattress company called simply enough, The Mattress Guys. "We are not a traditional retail operation," explained Baker. With a few displays on hand, The Mattress Guys mainly do their business by appointment only, added Malburg.

My little town on the Mesabi Iron Range only had about 400 people living in it when I was growing up, but we had three taverns that served up 3.2 percent beer by the bottle or on tap. One didn't have to drive too far around "the lake" to find three more three-two beer joints.

Jeers to Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway for jeopardizing the inexpensive flow of electricity to this area. Business has been booming for Burlington Northern, and the company has found itself unable to keep up with demand by power plants for coal from the Powder River Basin. Some of that power flows to the Detroit Lakes area via Missouri River Energy Services, part of a consortium of consumer-owned utilities that is having trouble keeping coal stockpiled at a level needed for smooth operations. When coal is not available, power must be generated using much more expensive natural gas
Without giving it a lot of thought, I always assumed I had lived a sheltered life. Not privileged by any means, but sheltered: you know, a mom, a dad, two brothers and a sister, three meals a day, a warm bed and a small school where everybody knew your name. However, in recent years, when I consider what we never experienced when I was growing up, I realize we were all deprived. For example, we never had closure. Everybody gets closure these days.

Beginning Monday, the Minnesota Department of Transportation will be conducting aerial mapping of Highway 32 from Highway 10 to just north of the Clay County line, and along Highway 10 from Highway 32 to Hawley.

These targets are a large white "X'' painted on paved surfaces, or a plastic or fabric "X" if placed on unpaved surfaces.
