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.

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.
