He kept in touch with the farm by phone, his radio and trips around the farm in the car. When able he enjoyed coffee at the C-C Corner in Graceville with his friends. Ed was so proud of his Irish and German heritage. In earlier years he loved hunting with his brothers and friends, or just sitting and watching the wildlife.

Doug Peterson. But Peterson's effort to obtain funding for flood control in Dawson and for Madison's downtown renova- tion project were rebuffed on near- party-line votes before the bill passed. "This bill is a mixed bag for our area and" all of Rural Minnesota," Peterson, of rural Madison, said. "there are a number of projects in there for us, but there was a strong bias against helping smaller rural communities like Madison and Dawson. Suburban legislators don't seem to recognize the development needs of small communities. The Twin Cities is not the whole state - but that seems to be the attitude of the people who put this bill together." Projects funded in West-Central Minnesota are: * $21.8 million for Flood Hazard Mitigation Grants to Montevideo and 10 other communities, including Minneapolis, St. Paul and two sub- urbs. Montevideo is fourth in priority for funding and could also receive state aid to cover part of the kx:al share of project costs. The funding pays the state share for capital improvements to public facilities to prevent or alleviate flood damage. * $1.5 million for a grant to Area II Minnesota River Basin Projects, Inc. for construction of the LQP- 25ILazarus Creek floxtwater reten- tion project. The state would pay up to 75 percent of the projects cost, with the rest coming from the Area II group. If the full grant is not used. the money goes to the state Board of Water & Soil Resources for other cap- ital improvement projects in the area. * $9.07 million to the University of Minnesota-Morris for three projects $8 million to renovate the Social Science building and construct addi- tional faculty offices; $1 million to install fire protection systems in stu- dent housing; and $70,000 to build an "environmentally friendly" swine far- rowing demonstration facility * $9.2 million to Southwest State University to design, construct and equip a new campus library. The bill also provides an unspecified amount to cover damage from the foxl service building fire that was not covered by the school's insurance policy. Peterson attempted to insert fund- ing tot Dawson's proposed floexl con- trol project in the section financing the flood grants |or Montevideo and other communities. His amendment, adding $1.85 million to the pool and putting Dawson fifth on the priority list, was rejected as 68 Republican lawmakers wted against it. Peterson also proposed providing $1 million for infrastructure improve- ments connected to Madison's down- town rehabilitation project. He funded that by attempting to cut $1 million from a $4 million expansion of the state-run National Sports Center in suburban Blaine. But this proposal was also shot down with 66 Republican "no" votes. "We keep being told that projects have to have 'regional or statewide significance' to be included," Peterson said. "A glance at some of the projects in this bill contradicts that. It seems like the definition of 'statewide' is 'Twin Cities.' Once again the small communities are being ovcrhmked."
