DEAR ABBY: My brother and his girlfriend, "Serena," moved in with my parents three years ago. They have since had a child who is almost 2. My brother did some things he shouldn't have, and now he's in prison. (He has eight months left to serve.) Serena doesn't work and barely takes care of their son. My parents seem to always have the little boy. Last night, I dropped by the house unexpectedly. Mom was in bed, but I found my dad and Serena making out on the couch. I was furious. I could have killed her right there for doing that to my mom and my brother.
When a resident dies in the Emmanuel Community in Detroit Lakes, a chime rings three times and a memorial announcement is made over the speaker system. Marking the death is neither the beginning nor the end of the "Circle of Care: May I Walk You Home" program that has earned an Excellence in Practice Award from Minnesota Health and Housing Alliance (MHHA). The award was presented at the MHHA Institute for Older Adult Services in Minneapolis Feb. 3. MHHA is a statewide association of senior housing and nursing home providers.

World sugar futures are at their highest levels in 25 years, but that's not doing Red River Valley sugar beet growers much good. The area's two sugar beet cooperatives -- Moorhead-based American Crystal Sugar and Wahpeton, N.D.-based Minn-Dak Farmers -- sold most of their 2005 crop last summer before prices jumped. "That's when our buyers wanted it," said James Horvath, president of American Crystal Sugar, which has about 2,900 farmer-shareholders. Minn-Dak, with about 500 farmer-shareholders, also sold most of its 2005 beets before sugar prices jumped, said Dave Roche, its president.
