Minnesota State Poem

Written by

(AP) A poem that serves as a tribute to the state of Minnesota is in line for a tribute itself.

A bill that would designate Cordell Keith Haugen's ``Minnesota Blue'' as the official state poem surfaced Wednesday. It would add the poem to a pantheon of state symbols recognized in law. Hockey is the state sport, the loon is the state bird, the walleye is the state fish, blueberry is the official state muffin flavor. In all, Minnesota has a dozen official symbols.

The poem bill was introduced by Republican Sen. Bruce Anderson of Buffalo.

The 45-line poem starts and ends with a ``Minnesota, how I love you'' verse. Here's a link to the entire poem: http://bit.ly/YraXql

More On Proposed Iron Mine Bill

Written by

 

(AP) The state Senate's top Republican says he's against imposing a so-called tonnage tax on a company looking to open an iron mine in far northwestern Wisconsin.

Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said during an address at a Madison business convention Wednesday some Republican senators have been talking about including the tax in a massive bill that would overhaul Wisconsin's mining regulations. The tax would require iron mining companies to pay taxes according to how much iron they extract.

Fitzgerald says the tax would signal mining isn't welcome in Wisconsin and Gov. Scott Walker almost certainly would veto any bill that contains it.

The bill is designed to ease the regulatory path for Gogebic Taconite's plans for a massive iron mine just south of Lake Superior.

Written by

No prayer to open city council meetings in Onalaska...

The council has voted 4-2 against beginning its meetings with a moment of prayer.  The vote came after nearly an hour of comments on both sides from area residents.  Alderman Jack Pogreba, who suggested the prayer idea, says he'd like to put it to a referendum in a city-wide ballot.
