He gave only love then he went away. Don't every forget the love he brought, his bright happy smile and the lessons he taught. It is hard losing someone who gives only love and goes back to heaven to the Father above. Remember him always; there's no other way. Then know in your heart you'll be with him one day. But for now, share the love and continue to say, "Thank you God for my angel who has gone away." 42-1 MN first in Co-op businesses in United states Secretary of State Mark Ritchie today recognized "Co-op Week" which is observed the week of October 16-22 by announcing that Minnesota is home to more coopera- tive businesses than any other state andseveral of the nation's largest co- MSI supper, auction this Fri. . , 1 vv WE RE READY.

Hunters can donate harvested deer to area food shelves Minnesota hunters can donate processed venison to food shelves at no or very little cost tlanks to a program coordinated by the Minnesota depart- ments of natural resources and agricul- ture. The state's venison donation pro- gram provides a prized food source to those in need while encouraging hunters to harvest additional animals. "We recognize that ethically, hunters will not take more deer than they know can be consumed," said Steve Merchant, wildlife populations and regulation programs manager for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). "Simply asking someone to take another deer to man- age populations provides only half of the picture. The venison donation pro- gram was developed to provide hunters an avenue to donate the extra deer they ing costs." More details on the venison dona- tion program, as well as a list of par- ticipating meat processors, are available online tion. Processors who accept deer are paid $70 to process each animal for food shelf distribution. "There are a few processors who are charging an additional fee to cover ex- penses, so hunters should check with the processor prior to donating a deer," Merchant said. Funding for the program comes from surcharges placed on antlerless permits and nonresident hunting li- censes. Individuals have an opportu- nity to donate to the program when they buy their deer license or by in- forming a DNR license agent they would like to donate to the program. ops are headquartered here. harvest without having to pay process- To donate a deer, hunters will need 'Minnesota ranks number one in sheer nnmbers of cooperatives and Poll suggests PAd our residents enjoy the tremendous benefit co-ops bring," Ritchie said. "Our state's co-ops generate more than $34 billion in revenue and pro- vide good jobs for 46,000 Minnesota residents." Owned and governed by their members, co-ops provide products and services as close as possible to actual cost, with profit margins plowed back into the business or returned to the members. Many indi- viduals are members of more than one co-op. Nearly 1,000 cooperative business- es serve approximately 3.4 million members in Minnesota. These co-ops provide goods and services ranging from farm supplies and farm credit, to electricity, petroleum products, grain marketing, dairy products and process!ng, housing, health care, telecommunications, ethanol and sugar production, credit unions, and food co-ops. "October is traditionally designat- ed as the month to honor co-ops and the contribution they make to stronger communities and it's fitting that the tradition began right here in Minnesota," said Cooperative Network President and CEO Bill Oemichen. "The tradition of celebrat- ing Co-op Month has deep roots in Minnesota. While the idea of cele- brating the special nature of coopera- tives first appeared in 1924 in Waukegan, Illinois, it was former Minnesota Governor Luther Youngdahl who signed the first offi- cial Minnesota October Co-op Month proclamation in 1948, at the request of the Minnesota Association of Cooperatives (now Cooperative Network)." NCB Financial Group, parent of the National Consumer Cooperative Bank, this week published its annual report detailing the top 100 co-ops in the nation and their contribution to the economy. Four Minnesota-based cooperatives were among the top two revenue producers by business sector in the NCB survey for 2010. to adhere to the following guidelines: Only whole carcasses with the hide on can be donated; processors will not accept cut and wrapped meat Or portions of carcasses. Information such as permit area of harvest and the DNR number will be collected for tracking purposes. Processors can only accept car- casses for donation that are free from signs of illness, free of visible decom- position or contamination, and prop- erly identified with a Minnesota DNR registration tag. Processors will reject deer for the donation program that appear to have been mishandled in any way. Hunters are strongly advised to con- tact the processor prior to donating the deer. The list of processors accepting deer will be regularlTpdated as more processors register. etermine air pollution standards in U.S. A new poll suggests Congress should butt out when it comes to air pollution standards in America. J. Drake Hamilton, science policy direc- tor with Fresh Energy, says the survey found that 75 percent of voters believe the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) should be in charge, as it has been for decades. "For 40 years in the U.S., we've been implementing better standards that keep lead out of our air and out of our kids, that stop acid rain - and pew, that are going to regulate the dirtiest of the coal-fired power plants, which is one of our top sources of pollution in Minnesota." She says public health protections are clarrently under attack by some in Ben Detwiler hoped to make the world a better place. That hope died when he was killed by a drunk driver. What should you do to stop a friend from driving drunk? Whatever you have to. Friends don't let friends drive drunk. Congress who want to delay require- ments that coal plants get updated pol- lution control equipment. The poll found that clean air is not a partisan issue. "Eighty-eight percent of Democrats, 85-percent of Independents and 58-per- cent of Republicans oppose Congress stopping the EPA from setting new lim- its to control air pollution from coal plants." Some of Minnesota's coal plants were built at least a half-century ago, and Drake Hamilton says they are sending mercury, carbon dioxide, ozone and particulate pollution into the air and water. That has health impacts in the state, where 240,000 suffer from asthma. One-fourth of them are chil- dren, she adds. "And the pollutants from these coal- fired power plants are triggering more asthma attacks, hospital visits, and then for people with respiratory disease, in some cases, premature death. We think this is unacceptable and it turns out that the voters overwhelmingly support stronger health-based rules." She notes the Clean Air Act was last updated 21 years ago. At that time, every member of Minnesota's Con- gressional Delegation supported the legislation.
