WASHINGTON, D.C. — Jackson’s National Guard Armory will receive $170,000 from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to install backup heating units. The funding was announced Monday. St. Peter’s National Guard Armory was also funded in Rep. Tim Walz’s congressional district.

LUVERNE — “The economy is on a crisis not seen since the Great Depression. Credit is frozen, consumer purchasing power is in decline. In the last four months the country has lost 2 million jobs and we are expected to lose another 3 to 5 million in the next year.”
I note that on Jan. 2, the Daily Globe reprinted an editorial that originally ran Dec. 29 in the Fairmont Sentinel. Titled “A pay raise? Now??”, the piece suggested that in these hard economic times it would be appropriate for members of Congress to forgo their annual “cost-of-living” pay increases.

Two years ago, Tim Walz — a social studies teacher from Mankato seeking political office for the first time — unseated six-term incumbent Gil Gutknecht and earned a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Democrat runs as coalition builder Tim Walz started his congressional career at the top.
He became president of the U.S. House freshman caucus right after his election two years ago, and gained publicity far beyond the borders of his southern Minnesota 1st Congressional District.
Have you noticed the wind turbines springing up across the political ads this fall? As a small wind producer in southern Minnesota, I have noticed that this election season, the wind turbine quickly became the universal political symbol for renewable, clean energy.
As a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives, Republican Brian Davis couldn’t help but comment on the symbolism between inviting the Democratic incumbent and the Republican challenger to share the stage as the 2008 King Turkey Day speakers, while two turkeys — Worthington’s Paycheck and the Cuero, Texas, bird Ruby Begonia — prepared to face off in the first heat of the Great Gobbler Gallop.
Brian Davis stopped by the Daily Globe last week. He has been no stranger to Worthington, as well as numerous other communities in his district, while campaigning for U.S. Congress, and with Tuesday’s primary fast approaching, Davis was trying to make as many last-minute visits as he could.
