The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is closing a 1970s-era fish hatchery because of failing infrastructure and excessive energy consumption. The French River Hatchery, located on Lake Superior north of Duluth, needs $8 million in capital investment to address failing equipment. It also consumes 10 percent of the energy used by the entire agency statewide. Fisheries Chief Don Pereira said energy inefficiency and costly repairs make it necessary to close the hatchery, but the remaining fish production will continue elsewhere.

Mike Goggin and Barb Haley have entered the rapid ramp-up to Jan. 3, when they join the Minnesota Legislature. While they have been preparing for this day since announcing their candidacies — Goggin for state Senate last summer and Haley for House in February — they switched from would-be lawmakers to senator-elect and representative-elect with Tuesday's election results. The grueling campaign has ended, so the genuine work begins.
I am, admittedly, and old white guy. I am not angry at anyone. I believe immigrants are, and always have been, our country's greatest strength. They should be welcomed and nourished, not feared. I think women should be respected as equal partners, not objectified. They should not have old white guys like me making their decisions for them. You and I should be able to practice our religions, or lack thereof, as we choose but not dictate to each other what to believe. Diversity is to be celebrated. We all prosper the most when more of us, including worldwide, prosper.
