By Deane Morrison University of Minnesota The young moon that heralds the arrival of March waxes to a mature full moon on the 14th. That evening, the moon will rise swathed in Earth's penumbra, or light outer shadow. The moon undergoes an eclipse, and is unusual in that the whole moon passes through the penumbra without any part of it touching the umbra, or dark inner shadow. The height of the eclipse occurs at 6:47 p.m. When it does rise, the moon will be subtly shaded, with only its bottom region noticeably darkened.

As the chairman of the Detroit Lakes Public Schools Board of Education, I am writing in response to the Ted Fiskevold column in your March 1 edition. As the board chair, I have informed the other board members that I am writing this letter, but I am speaking for myself. I normally wouldn't respond to such a column, because it is poorly written and shows a lack of effort on the columnist's part to get at the facts.
U.S. Senator Mark Dayton (D-Minn.) applauded passage of the Combat Meth Act March 3. Dayton introduced it with U.S. Sens. James Talent (R-Mo.) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), to restrict the sale of a key ingredient found in methamphetamine. The legislation, which was included in the Patriot Act renewal, passed the Senate by a vote of 89 to 10. The bill requires that Sudafed and other cold medicines containing the chemical pseudoephedrine, which is often used to make meth, be moved from grocery shelves to behind the pharmacy counter.
