In today's business culture safety has become just as important as production. Corporate headquarters are giving notice to their plants that, while healthy production and sales translate into a successful company, lost time means lost money. "We're trying to develop a safety culture," said Dave Turner, plant manager at ADM Co. in Red Wing.

ST. PAUL -- Some Minnesota Senate Democrats launched a precision strike against President Bush Monday, while leaving unscathed their support for American troops in Iraq. "It is possible to stand behind the men and women who are overseas, but not stand behind the president," an emotional Sen. Linda Scheid, DFL-Brooklyn Park, said. She urged removal of a reference to supporting the president from a resolution backing troops. "I'm stunned," responded Sen. Pat Pariseau, R-Farmington. Removing references to the president "is a travesty," Pariseau said.

ELLSWORTH -- The world felt a bit smaller for two Ellsworth High School students recently when they discovered each other's involvement with the program "Whatever" on Twin Cities' KARE TV, Channel 11. This is the third year senior Rose Carr has been on the show and freshman Sophia Grimm's first encounter after winning a talent contest. One to four times per month Carr can be seen interviewing different performers and groups on the program. "It's not as time consuming as people think," explained Carr.
MINNEAPOLIS -- The best way to summarize Zumbrota-Mazeppa's season was to watch Coach Tim McAthie being interviewed after his team's win in the Class AA state third-place game Saturday. He beamed with pride but also shed tears as the season came to an end. Zumbrota-Mazeppa easily defeated Esko 60-45 to finish with a 28-4 record. And while everyone was thrilled with the victory and ending the season on a high note, sadness, too, set in with the realization of the season coming to a close. "I just can't describe the run we've been on," McAthie said.
