Honor Guard Funding Discussed

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) A key legislative committee considers a budget request for the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs this week that includes a provision for funding honor guards at military funerals. Gov. Mark Dayton's has proposed $400,000 to help pay for the honor guards, as funding from veteran service

organizations and the federal government dwindles.

The families of about 4,800 Minnesota veterans are expected to request the honor guards at their funerals this year, up by more than 400 from last year.

The Army National Guard has 17 members in teams in Moorhead, St. Cloud, Cottage Grove and Duluth. Each team performs as many as four funerals a day. The funeral honor guard includes a detail of at least two uniformed members who fold and present a U.S. flag and play taps.

No Feed Geese

Written by

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) A proposed ordinance would ban people from feeding geese and other wildlife on public land in Cedar Rapids. The ordinance is aimed at keeping so many geese from staying too long in popular parks and fouling them with excrement.

The city has posted signs against feeding, but those have been largely ignored over the years. The proposed ordinance would put teeth into the punishment for violations: a $75 fine for a first offense, $150 for a second offense and $300 for a third.

The city also will continue its annual roundup of geese, which are then taken to rural areas in other counties.
It's unclear when the City Council will vote on the proposal.

Turkey Hunt Coming

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Wisconsin's youth turkey hunt is just a few days away. The two-day hunt gets under way Saturday. The hunt allows mentors to take children as young as 10 out hunting even if they haven't completed hunter education Mentors must stay within an arm's reach, however.

Children between the ages of 12 and 15 who have completed hunter education may hunt during the youth hunt as long as they're with an adult.

Each child must have a valid spring turkey harvest permit, license and stamp.

Lepsch Murder Trial Put Off Until Late Summer

Written by

The trial in the May's Photo murders won't happen next month as planned.  Jeffrey Lepsch's trial is being postponed until late July, as attorneys will have more time to deal with evidence from the crime scene.  Prosecutors say Lepsch killed Paul Petras and his son A-J at the family store on a Saturday afternoon last fall.  Lepsch's defense attorneys plan to challenge fingerprint evidence taken from the scene.
