Full story:
Forget about cutting black walnut trees in Minnesota's state parks. But as for wild-rice habitat, no problem easing water-quality standards for now. Full Story

"The Senate bill would force the DNR to get rid of the Baudora and General C.C. Andrews state nurseries and then sell the land"

I don't get why the republicans are anti environment. I understand the need to create jobs and fix the budget but the state is projected to grow by 1,000,000 people in the next 25 years. We have to ask ourselves what we want to look like and value as a state. We've already filled in most of our wetlands for farming and cut our pines for lumber. I guess we can just pull it all up and look like Illinois?

State Forest Nurseries produce native trees and shrubs grown from local seed sources for conservation purposes. We've been doing it since 1933. Our mission is to produce Minnesota hardy, bareroot seedlings of high quality, reasonably priced for you the woodland steward. We are dedicated to helping to protect the sustainability of Minnesota's diverse forest resources, and the continuance of our state's proud tree planting heritage.

Just collateral damage within the Big Pharma Cartel's iron-fisted takeover of our cities and towns.

Nobody has pain meds in Japan right now, but America's roads are lousy with pill-poppers driving to work and to the coffee shop. LMFA right OFF.

By the way, let's see how long it takes - if ever - for drugged-driving legislation to even be written, much less passed. With Big Pharma paying-off each and every one of our so-called elected leaders, the drug dealers in the long white coats (your family doctor, for you slow people) will continue to deal the narcotics right out of their drug-houses (clinics), with only one thing to worry about: If and when they get their free Hawaii trip as Top Dealer.

Strib headline says "Republican bill will close State Parks". This shows the bias west of the river. The DNR lackies threaten to close parks when their budget is cut. Why? Because they can depend on the Strib and others to pile on the untruth. A HS senior with a calculator and a 3 didget IQ could make cuts at the DNR without having to close a park. The DNR and their co-conspiraters should be ashamed of themselves. Any body buying this garbage needs to rethink what they are reading and who they are supporting.
