For the first time in an awfully long time, Minnesota’s Management and Budget Office is projecting a state budget surplus. Already there are proposals emerging about what to do with it: tax cuts, placing it in a reserve account, and/or spending it on things like roads and bridges, just to name a few. I would appreciate South-West Review readers’ input on these ideas.
We have the high honor in Inver Grove Heights of hosting Minnesota’s official Veterans Day Program again this year. It’s has been a great privilege for our community to host the official program more often than any other city in the state.
While we’re honoring veterans across Minnesota, we’re certainly not forgetting our local vets — both active and retired, young and old, those still with us, and those who have passed away.
