Dayton announces new funding for small businesses Building on the momentum from 1st week's statewide jobs summit, Governor Mark Dayton has announced that he will take immedi- ate action to provide Minnesota job creators with access to funding by doubling the state's investment in small businesses through a Small Business/Banking Partnership. "This funding doubles Minnesota's investment in our small businesses. These funds will help break down one of the largest barri- ers to job growth in our state. After spending the past nine months talk- ing to Minnesotans about how we get our state working again, entrepre- neurs need to know that we are going to work aggressively to give them the tools they need to create jobs. Today, I am taking action to spur investment in the small businesses that fuel Minnesota's economy," Governor Dayton said. The Minnesota Small Business/Banking Partnership will be established by doubling in size a current program to make funds avail- able to qualifying Minnesota banks for direct lending to job creators. Administered through the Minnesota State Board of Investment, approxi- mately $100 million to $200 million will be deposited in Minnesota's community banks for lending to their customers - principally small busi- nesses4hroughout the state. To qualify for the program, banks must have a rating of at least "satis- factory" from the Minnesota Department of Commerce and must be well capitalized. Deposits will be fully insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). The expansion of the Small Business/Banking Partnership will provide financial institutions through- out Minnesota with up to $200 mil- lion to lend to small businesses, help- ing to grow revenues, add jobs, and increase Minnesota's tax base. The partnership comes at the rec- ommendation of the Governor's Small Business Capital Access Task Force. The task force was established to address the concerns raised repeated- ly by small businesses - that invest- ment capital and credit are more diffi- cult to obtain and their unavailability is a significant constraint to business expansion and job growth. To address these issues, the task force was charged with making prac- tical, prudent recommendations to the Governor to improve the flow of investment capital and credit to small businesses and to recommend other financial strategies for facilitating job retention in Minnesota. Medicare open enrollment period is early this year By Michele Kimball, Director, AARP Minnesota Medicare Open Enrollment season has begun. If that seems a bit early to you-you're right. This year the Open Enrollment period begins and ends early (Oct. 15-Dec. 7). In previous years the enrollment period began closer to November and extended until the end of December. In order to avoid confusion and ensure that no senior misses their opportunity to review changes, it is more important than ever to spread the word on this critically important time of the year. AARP recommends that everyone enrolled in Medicare take the opportu- nity to review their plan each year and make sure it is still the right choice for them. Circumstances change each year. Premiums can increase, benefits could increase or decrease and an individuals' health status could change as well. Any or all of these factors could lead seniors to need a new plan. It is also just a good practice to review the competition to ensure you aren't spending too much money. Plans that were more expensive years ago may be cheaper now. Too many seniors put off the Open Enrollment season because they feel it is too complicated or complex. But it is important to understand that there are resources out there to help you take advantage of this opportunity to save money and improve your cover- age. The best resource for Minnesota seniors without a doubt is the Senior LinkAge Line. The LinkAge Line is a partnership between the state Administration on Aging and the federal Area Agencies on Aging. It is the one stop shop that has it al I - and the volunteers and staff at the LinkAge Line specialize in Medicare plans. The LinkAge Line can be reached toil-free at 1-800-333-2433. In addi- tion to answering questions about Medicare, they can also assist with long term care needs, referrals and applications for heating and nutrition assistance. Before choosing a new plan it is important to consider things like: how much will it cost for premiums, pre- scriptions and copayments, are your current doctors covered in the new plan, do you need referrals to see a specialist, are your medications cov- ered and is your local pharmacy included in the plan's network. If you are on Medicare or have a loved one on Medicare these are very important decisions. It is so critical to have the most affordable plan that meets your needs.

Randall was a long-time member of Grace Lutheran Church where he was a voter and also served as trustee. He also was a member of the Appleton Jaycees. His greatest love was spending time with the family, especially his granddaughters, who dearly loved their "PaPa", and his beloved dog, Dakota.

He grew up on the family farm and graduated from Graceville High School i.n 1979. During high school, Gary learned how to drive and became licensed to drive semi-trucks. Immediately following graduation he opened Bauer Trucking, a business he continued to operate his entire adulthood. During his career he drove through every continental state in the US! Gary also sold semi trailers and, from 1998- 2006, owned and operated Stub's Pub in Graceville. Gary thoroughly enjoyed driving and also found pleasure in hunting and fishing. Each year he joined his Odessa hunting buddies for an expedition. He also organized the "Annual Smoked Meat Cook-off" in the jail lot, which he owned. Even though it was a contest, a winner was never declared! Gary's true passion was his family -he treasured his relationships with Becky, her children and grandchildren, his mother and siblings, and his nieces and nephews. He was fun-loving and quick witted. "That was GOOD humor!" was a favorite quote of his. He will be deeply missed. Gary passed away on Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2011 at his boyhood farmstead, having reached the age of 51 years.
