Minnesota Milk Producers Assn. convention and trade show The Minnesota Dairy Industry cre- ates more than fifty thousand jobs and contributes three billion dollars to Minnesota's economy by turning corn, soybeans, and alfalfa into milk, cheese and other nutritional dairy products. But in 2001, Minnesota's milk supply declined by over 7% and Wisconsin's milk supply dwindled by almost 5%. Over this same period, California's milk supply grew by approximately 3c and Idaho's milk industry grew by over 7%. What can be done to keep a healthy and prof- itable dairy industu,' in the Upper Midwest7 Minnesota Milk will address this challenge March 21 and 22.

Jim Peters, attorney for the plain- tiff, said that this ruling should help promote enforcement of the clear standard that counties and the Mitmesola Pollution Control Agency should follow when deciding whether or not to require EAWs.

Lac qut Parle County, like many rural counties, has authority to regulate feedlots through a delegation agreement with the MPCA.

Letters to the editor Letter to the Editor This is Joe Berning, Big Stone County Sheriff with the Big Stone County Sheriff Department. Sometimes my officers and myself are called to the scene of fatal traffic accidents. It is our responsibility to tell the families that one of their members has been killed. It is one of the hardest jobs in law enforcement and it is especially hard if the victim is a young person. The looks and the shock on their faces are something that we will never forget. Most of my officers are parents themselves and we can put ourselves in the parent's position very easily. It could have been our child as well as theirs. The situation is even worse if there has been alc<hfl or peed involved. If one of those factors had been left out of the accident it may have been a different outcmne Each year in Minnesota thousands of young people arc injured or lose their lives in accidents where alcohol has been inwlved. In 2(g)0, 10, of the drivers killed who had been drinking were IIII II under the age of 21. Records also indicate that young drivers who have been drinking fail to wear their seatbelt, thus increasing the odds of death or injury. Young people are the future of our country. ]'hey must be guided and watched along the way and that is where the parents come in the picture. If parents could see some of the accidents and the reactions of family members when we deliver these messages they would understand the consequences of letting their children drink, speed, and not buckle up. I am asking parents who arc reading this message to do one thing for my officers and myself. Sit duwn with your children and tell them about drinking and driving, speeding and not wearing seat belts. Just let them know you care about them and their safety. If they listen even a little bit they will live longer, I promise. Joseph J.
