SISSETON, SD-Charges against five adults and one juvenile are expected to be filed sometime soon by Roberts County State's Attorney Kerry Cameron. State Game, Fish and Parks Department officials say the men could face up to nine counts of failure to tag a big game animal, nine counts of possession of illegally taken/illegally tagged big game animals, five counts of taking/possessing a deer without a proper license, and four counts of using the deer license/tag of another hunter. The charges stem from a Nov. 21 incident in which wildlife conservation offices seized 10 deer from a Roberts County farm. Some of the deer had been processed and others were hanging in a barn.

The State Demographic Office announced that Minnesota's per-capi- ta income grew by 4.1 percent in 1997, while nationally income grew by 4.7 percent, a 13 percent faster rate than Minnesota's. In August, the Mid-American Business Coalition revealed that Minnesota's economic growth was the slowest in the nine-state Midwest region. "Minnemta desperately needs a dramatic and permanent tax cut to stimulate economic growth. What these studies shows is that Minnesota's big-government and high-tax Ixdicies have hurt businesses and their employees in Minneata. Tax cuL, are desperately needed to get the economy moving again," said Darrell McKigney. "Minnesotans are working harder than ever today, but our income growth trails the nation. A large tax cut would insure that the citizens of Minnesota would enjoy the rewards of their work rather than seeing their hard-earned dollars sucked into another state surplus. "The Legislature should not only insure that 100 percent of any future surplus should be returned to the tax- payers, but also cut taxes i ing by at least 10 percent," added. The Taxpayers Minnesota is the partisan and non-profit advocacy organization.

Uno Lakes Minneapolis APlfe To better serve a growing population and its increased reliance on modems, cellular phones, fax machines, and pagers, the telephone companies of Minnesota have split the 612 area code into two area codes: 612 and the new 651. This kind of change is not just occurring in Minnesota, but throughout the country. And because the new codes differ in format from previous codes that contained either a t' or a 0' in the second digit, you should check all PBXs and Central Office-based systems for compatibility. Some of these systems may require reprogramming or upgrading. Cellular phones may need to be reprogrammed by your cellular service provider. To test your equipment, call the new Minnesota State area code test line ar no charge: 1-800-441-5516. If you have any difficulty dialing the new area code, please call your operator to assist you in placing your call.
