WORTHINGTON -- It didn't take very long for Neil Kruse's life to change. As of last Tuesday, Kruse was working as an assistant meat manager for Fareway Food Stores in Shenandoah, Iowa, where he had been employed for five years.

Lee has come a long way in his journey from the Chinese metropolis of Guangzhou to the southwest Minnesota prairie. "Guangzhou is in the south part of China. It's close to Hong Kong, about 100 miles," Lee said Monday afternoon.
