Regarding the Detroit Lakes School District's educational services contract with LNP Consulting: The next time the school board or school administration reminds us, "the public," that it's for the kids, remember $45,000 would have really helped the kids. -- John S. Watland, Detroit Lakes
All this talk about big blizzards reminds me of the worst one I ever saw: The most severe blizzard in modern history struck in North Dakota and Minnesota on March 15, 1941. The blizzard hit on a Saturday while many were traveling, and thus claimed 71 lives. Winds gusted to 75 mph at Duluth, and reached 85 mph at Grand Forks, N.D. Snowdrifts 12 feet high were reported in north central Minnesota. A cold front traveling 30 mph crossed Minnesota in just seven hours. It here happened at 11 p.m.
