A00nza news digest GARY, SD-Larry Hinder of Gary, SD was tending his beef cattle in his pasture the morning of April 25. He went to "do something" with them, but he doesn't remember what. He came to consciousness on the ground, made his way home and laid down. (Determined to be about 9 a.m.) His wife came home at 6 p.m. to find Larry with injuries to his head and face and bruises on his back. After a trip to the clinic where his injuries were treated, the couple returned home the same day. Hinder surmises that he likely planned to give an appetite builder pill to one of the young calves and, coming between the mother cow and her calf, may have caused the cow to attack him. MADISON-On April 28, 2003, the Madison City Council agreed to settle the special assessment appeal, Haverberg etal. vs City of Madison, Court File No. 37-C4-00-207. although the Minnesota Court of Appeals reversed the district court's decision and affirmed the city's assessment policy, the council decided to settle the matter with the 12 remaining plaintiffs in light of the anticipated costs and expenses in continuing to respond to the appeal. The council agreed to reimburse the plaintiffs for certain costs and expenses in appealing the assessment in exchange for a dismissal of the appeal. The plaintiffs will, however, be responsible for their full assessments. It appears that all 12 plaintiffs have elected to accept the settlement proposal.
