Arne H. Carlson today announced, as of June 8, the state of Minnesota has rebated nearly $300 million to taxpayers who participated in the 1997 property tax rebate pro- gram. "The state's 20 percent rebate for 1997 property taxes equal nearly $245 per person in rebate dollars which can be used for investments, school expenses, vacations, or to spend sim- ply as a person chooses," said Carlson. Carlson proposed a tax rebate in 1997 when the state's budget surplus reached $2.3 billion. He noted, "Our surpluses are no accident. They are the result of a strong economy, com- bined with solid fiscal management, including 179 vetoes, during my administration to stop more than $1.5 billion in spending." Minnesotans claimed their proper- ty tax rebate when they filed their income tax returns. As of June 8, the Minnesota Department of Revenue has processed 1.7 million 1997 income tax returns with .2 million people claiming the property tax rebate. This means, nearly 70 percent of Minnesotans who did their 1997 income taxes are claiming the rebate so far. Another 20 percent property tax rebate will be available to Minnesotans for their 1998 property taxes. "This double reward comes after years of fiscal restraint, said Carlson. "Minnesota capitalized on the country's robust economy and prudent state governing to create this victory for taxpayers." E.

People are invited to create your own cast iron relief sculpture or check out the activities. Sand blocks will make a sculpture approximately 11 inches x 11 inches x 2 inches. The Clinton-Graceville CAPP Committee is planning to make this an annual activity with the comple- tion of a community sculpture next year. This project is made possible from donations from the following corn- munity groups and businesses: Clinton Community Service Club, Ortonville JC's, Clinton Women's Civic Club, Big Stone County Co- op, Minnwest Bank, Tri-County Co- op Oil of Chokio, Barry Farmers Co- op, Clinton State Bank, Big Stone County Fair Board and C-G CAPP. Flag Burning Ceremony at Co. Fair The Campbell-Williams American Legion Post No. 297 will sponsor a flag burning ceremony on Saturday, July 25 at 5 p.m. at the Big Stone County Fair. The ceremony will afford area resi- dents the opportunity to properly dis- pose of old, tattered or faded American flags in an appropriate way. A" part of the ceremony reads: "A Flag may be a flimsy bit of printed gauze, or a beautiful banner of finest silk. Its intrinsic value may be trifling or great; but its real value is beyond price, for it is a precious symbol of all that we and our comrades have worked for and lived for, and died for - a free nation of free men, mae to the faith of the past, devoted to the ideals and practice of Justice, Freedom and Democracy." Anyone with an old flag may bring it to the fair any day they attend, and either leave it at the gate with the ticket seller, or bring it into the Fair Board office. If you are not going to be at the fair, or wish to drop it off earlier, leave it at The Northern Star office in Clinton.
