Jon Daniel, angry young man, and Jim Ardis, mayor of Peoria. (The mayor's photo is on the right, if you couldn't tell.)

It is truly disturbing that there is more than one judge in Peoria willing to sign their name to aRead More warrant that sweeps up every device with a built-in memory to address tweets that are open communication. Why didn't they just go ahead and freeze their bank accounts and impound their cars, too?

I see some of the Hitler youth ie Bod and his servant Flora. Ok Bob now I take offense at yourRead More comment and believe you should be punished but because of the internet I'm not quit sure if was actually you who made the whole post so I will send in some thugs round up every one near to you, take all the devices and put you all in little rooms and question you all for a few hours to get to the bottom of it. .. It's the damn internet to do what this moron mayor did is an offense to all Americans. The mayor the judges and the police chief do not have what it takes to be trusted agents of the state. End of story. go pound sand bob!

Bob and Flora apparently voted for Obama too. They have no regard for our rights and theRead More constitution of this country. Line up Bob and Flora, get your Kool Aid!

Interesting when in our own community the police look the other way and allow pot dealers fromRead More another country do their thing. Why not regulate it and get the tax money? It will guarantee that it is a good clean organic variety and we would benefit from the taxes on it. Colorado and Washington and California( medical Marijuana) will be watched closely on this issue.

Let's start with reforming drug sentencing around marijuana. It is a true minority of people thatRead More think our drug sentencing minimums are sane and are doing more societal good than societal harm. They are out of all proportion. And then when we fix drug sentencing minimums, we should retroactively revise sentences to all those in Minnesota prisons for drug violations. I'm not convinced "medical marijuana" should be the first hurdle to jump to changing the state's drug policy, we know everything medicinal in "medical marijuana" and regulated and is available over-the-counter by prescription already.

Leslie, You stopped me as i entered a DFL event and bad mouth Gov Dayton because he opposed this. ItRead More appears to me that Gov Dayton is taking a guarded, rational approach to this issue. I am happy he is wanting more research on the entire issue. I think he will change his mind on this after the facts are out. But your approach is too extreme. Take some demeanor from Scott Dibble. H

So the dome was good enough for the Vikings, but not so for the Twins. Build them a field you cried,Read More and you the tax payer did. The dome is good enough for the Vikings but not so for the Gophers. Build them a field you cried, and you the tax payer did. What is wrong with you folks from Minnesota, I mean what is your deal? Karl, you do know you bought the other 2 stadiums right? Is that it, your pissed because you already bought 2 stadiums for 2 crappy teams and you just cannot handle one more? I guess I could see your point then, but you have to come out and say that.

Why didn't the Pohlads and Wilfs go get a loan to build their projects just like everyone else hasRead More to? Because....they use their wealth to buy political favors and get free taxpayer money instead! Also, let's not forget which newspaper owns the majority of the land in this redevelopment and that has been very vocal supporters of the project. Hint: they have a very elderly multi-multi-multi millionaire who somehow thinks he is still relevant.

It wouldn't have happened on my watch. Leslie Davis ECHO PRESS Alexandria, Minnesota January 24,Read More 2014 Leslie Davis announces governor candidacy Leslie Davis of Minneapolis has announced his candidacy for Minnesota governor. Born in 1937, Davis is a U.S. Army veteran, father of four grown children and is founder/president of Earth Protector Companies. Now affiliated with the DFL, he will run in the DFL primary this August. “Right now, many Minnesotans are losing jobs, homes, farms, and retirement funds, and many middle class families are being thrown into poverty as fuel, food, housing, medical care and education costs soar,” Davis said.

The Capitol does not have enough Civil War art. And I would correct the author. It was really theRead More War against Northern Aggression, as Lincoln and the northerners started the war against the South, who were correct in standing up to the North for states' rights.

It has been fine for a hundred years. In fact very fine. Leave it that way.

By that logic, the state should not regulate youth and alcohol or prescription drugs. KnownRead More health risks associated with overuse - regulation makes sense for minors.

No the state, or government should not have to limit a person's right to do anything. Tanning is theRead More least of our worries. I hate to go on a rant, but look at everything else they can control. It's becoming a dictatorship rather than a democracy. Now, they are drug testing random public school students, demanding we pay outrageous prices for prescriptions, tanning isn't the issue here. Taking away our right to do what we can is wrong. Although, it is unhealthy and teens should know better by now, the most we can do is educate them not demand change.

Hey kids can get stoned legally in some States, why not take a tan too

No ~ I don't because too many things have gone wrong. HHS Secretary Sebelius had 4 years to getRead More this done and it still is not right it doesn't seem too hopeful to me. She also knew it was not ready to go when she said it was. SO, who knows if this is the truth or not.
