Sacrifice. It can be a word hard for somebody to wrap their minds around when the word truly becomes reality. Before that word hits home, it is just a word...
It sounds like good news for farmers and school districts – the Minnesota Legislature passed the Agriculture School Building Bond Credit Sunday night, giving farmers a big break in taxes associated with school bond referendums. The credit will reduce those taxes by 40 percent on ag land – not homestead property, but just agriculture land that is taxed for school building bonds.
Memorial day may be all about barbecues and an extra day off from work for some, but there are always those who make sure the holiday is celebrated with true meaning - those who will always go the extra mile to honor our fallen military members. The Ogema VFW post 9880 is a group of veterans of war who are dedicated to doing just that.
