C UP ANOTHER PRO-LIFE SIGN. Members of the Knights of Columbus, Eugene Rausch Council Re/Big Stone City, are shown recently putting up a new pro-lifesign on their billboard e City. The sign can be seen on both sides of the billboard.

Ortonville was among more than a dozen schools statewide who were caught in a fiscal bind by a 1997 law requiring contrac- tors on school construction jobs to pay their employees a "prevailing wage." The "prevailing wage" law states that contractors on public projects must pay their employees the average or typical wage paid to workers on pri- vate projects in the same geographical area. "In the t997 special session, we tried to pass special legislation to 'grandfather' Ortonville and the other affected districts," Paterson said. "But House Republicans made a political football out of the issue, insisting that the entire prevailing wage law be repealed, and blocked action. That's why I sought and won the special grant for Ortonville in this year's ses- sion. So although construction costs are still higher than anticipated, the state is picking up more of the dis- trict's cost in the technology area. It's not the solution we originally wanted, but it will help protect the taxpayers of Ortonville. And I will continue to fight for additional funding for the Ortonville district."
