Presbyterian Church, its Women's group, Presbytery Coordinating Team, Lowell Owen Danielson Interested participants are reminded that harvest of snow geese, including blue-phased snow geese and the smaller Ross' geese, will be allowed from Tuesday, March 1, to Sunday, April 30. The harvest will occur under a fed- eral conservation order that permits 24 states, including Minnesota, to allow harvest of light geese after the close of hunting seasons. A spring light goose permit is re- quired and may be obtained through any DNR license agent, online and by telephone at 888-665-4236. Customers using the telephone will receive a tem- porary authorization number in lieu of the permit until it can be mailed to the applicant.

WORKING FOR THE PEOPLE OF 20A On Tuesday, Feb. 15, Governor Dayton presented his budget with his proposal to close the state's $6.2 billion deficit. I deeply appreciate the fact that he honored his campaign promises to support local government aid-thereby protecting property tax payers across our district-funding education and promoting tax fairness. While Governor Dayton's budget does contain painful cuts, including a six percent cut to the state workforce, a six percent cut to higher education, and a two percent cut to nursing homes; it's a far cry from what any Republican all-cuts budget proposal would include. Their budget - when they offer it - will no doubt contain millions in cuts to health and human services throwing tens of thousands of vulnerable Minnesotans off public health insurance programs, significantly deeper cuts to higher education, driving up tuition right when students and families can least afford it, decimate our E-12 education system, all while raising property taxes by hundreds of millions of dollars so they can offer the wealthiest Minnesotans and corporations a tax cut. We need to have an honest discussion about what direction we want to take as Minnesotans. We need to talk about what we value as Minnesotans, what services we believe government should provide, and then how we should pay for them. I look forward to a complete budget proposal from the Republican leadership and a vibrant discussion about the future of our state. This week also saw the introduction of a bill by Rep.
