JACKSON — Recently re-elected to his third term in the U.S. Congress, Rep. Tim Walz visited the high school agriculture classroom at Jackson County Central Friday morning to share his thoughts on agriculture, education and energy.
ST. PAUL (AP) — Gov. Tim Pawlenty capped a personally momentous week with a politically enterprising trip to Washington on Friday, squeezing in at least three speeches and a couple of interviews about his future plans.

This would ease the pain the long-term care providers would feel, they argue, as well as any other number of those receiving state funds.
