Beginning today, families of hospital patients, news organizations and even clergy members will be feeling the effects of a federal ban on information under the new Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Patients, who will be required to sign papers acknowledging that they were notified of the act, won't notice much of a difference. Yet health-care providers, who are now required to comply with the act, commonly referred to as HIPAA, know all too well the effects.

The Red Wing boys golf team plays in one of the most competitive sections in the state. Although it was quite an accomplishment to have two individuals advance to the state meet last year, the Wingers weren't satisfied. This season, the Wingers are shooting for a state meet appearance as a team.
To The Editor: Planned Parenthood supports common-sense health care that prevents unintended pregnancies and abortion. But one bill, the Taxpayer Protection Act, not only defies common sense, it will increase abortions. The act is being promoted as a way to end taxpayer funding for abortion. Unfortunately the bill's proponents haven't done their homework. Minnesota law already forbids state family planning funding from supporting abortion. It's time for the truth about the insidious goal behind this bill.

ELLSWORTH -- The Pierce County Board is expected to vote to transfer more than $363,000 from the general fund to cover 2002 deficits in law enforcement. Of that amount, $306,000 will pay for an overrun for boarding prisoners in out-of-county jails. The item will be on the agenda when the board meets at 9 a.m. Tuesday. "We asked for more, but they cut it back," said Sheriff Everett Muhlhausen of the 2002 budget. He asked for $320,000 to board prisoners, got $174,000 and spent $408,000.
