The teams area back in action this week, hosting a meet this afternoon, Tuesday April 23, beginning at 4:30 p.m. Representatives by a vote of 229-198. "The historic tax relief we passed last year, strengthened families by eliminating the marriage tax penalty and doubling the per child tax credit," said Congressman Kennedy. "Today's Action makes that relief permanent." The bill repeals Title IX of H.R. 1836, the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001, which "sunsets" tax relief provisions after 20 t 0. "Today's vote prevents a tax increase on all taxpayers by making last year's tax relief law permanent by striking the Senate's December 31, 2010 sunset," said Congressman Kennedy. "Millions of American families will now be able to keep their hard-earned money and plan for the future." AHPC project at power plant on schedule Last year the United States Department of Energy granted 49 percent funding for Big Stone Plant's $13.4 million Advanced Hybrid Particulate Collector. The AHPC, which will be installed in September, will make Big Stone Plant a world leader in particulate emission controls. Nearly all of the contract rep,,aratmn work is complete etween Big Stone and the DOE. "Fabrication of some of the longer- lead items will ,begin shortly in Welser, Austria,' says Big Stone Plant Manager Jeff Endrizzi. The Advanced Hybrid Particulate Collector's cutting-edge technology will enable the new emission system to remove 99.99 percent or more of fine particulates from the flue gas stream at Big Stone Plant. "This will help boost the image of Big Stone and other coal-burning plants," says Endrizzi. "A year and a half of testing with a pilot unit shows that the new system is highly effective." The AHPC was invented at the University of North Dakota's Energy and Environmental Research Center. It combines characteristics of a conventional precipitator with specially designed fabric filter bags for a more effective and lower-cost option for fine-particulate control. Baby shower set for Madison Rae An open house baby shower for Madison Rae, infant daughter of Liane Hamann and Steve Lafove, will be held May 4 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the home of Ray and Irene Hamann, two miles north of Ortonville on Hwy. 75. Happenings By Bob Dybvig I have started my thirteenth year at the golf course. The park department has been reorganized and is now under the street department. Most plantings at the golf course have come through the winter in good shape with the exception of deer damage to some of the young trees. Three of the five 'Discovery' Elms that were planted two years ago were partially debarked. Hopefully they will survive. The deer are also consuming some of the tulips as they come up. We will be planting five 'Cathedral' Elms at the golf course this spring. This is a cross of Japanese and Siberian Elm. It is very resistant to the Dutch Elm disease. Tulips and daffodils should be fertilized as they come up or while the tops are still green. Cut the spent flowers as this will allow them to store energy for the next years bloom. This is also advisable for lilies, daylilies, and peonies. Peonies become very unsightly if the seedheads are left on. Spring is a good time to seed a lawn. It should be done from the middle of April to the middle of May. Keep the seed moist until it germinates and continue to water as needed, A starter fertilizer is also recommended. As I have stated in the past...for the established lawn...if the weather is hot and dry, raise the cutting height to 2 1/2 to three ...... inches. Several of the vegetables can be Dybvig planted as early as the soil can be worked. Peas, carrots, onions, and of course potatoes can all be planted early. For a good crop of large onions the plants work out best. Wait until the soil temperatures warm to plant beans, sweet corn, tomatoes, peppers, squash, and melons. The demonstration rose garden came through the winter in good shape. It will need some pruning of broken branches and also pruning to shape, some of the bushes, Normally they get fertilized and they will need the equivalent (f )ne inch of rain a week during the growing season. Have a great spring. True Minnesota. Some things are distinctly Minnesotan -- like Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, recognized for delivering quality health care plans for nearly 70 years. That's why more MinnesOtans choose Blue Cross than any other plan.
