We had the privilege of Barry being the first responder when we discovered my father-in-law BillRead More Hart had died in his home August 2004. It was especially meaningful to see Barry, as he was Bill's cousin. I'll never forget the huge hug he gave me to comfort and just being there for us. Judy and Wayne, you raised a wonderful guy with a huge compassionate heart. I'll be thankful everyday that is was Barry who was there first that day!

I'm in shock. Barry was a great man, and so full of life. My heart goes out to his partner, Scott,Read More and his whole family. I hope you find peace and comfort in each other and all who knew and loved Barry.

I am a Ron Paul supporter. I do not believe the US Government was involved in 911, unless youRead More consider Blow back from occupying Saudi Arabia, interfering in Iran's politics for 60 years, or arming the Taliban in Afghanistan to fight against Russia, or supplying poison gas and weapons to Saddam Hussein to fight against Iran as involvement. There are some pretty outstanding questions about 911, such as how did an entire building collapse when it was not damaged or hit by a plane. Why was it the all the documents concerning Enron were destroyed in building 7 and the Pentagon. All Ron Paul has ever said was there are unanswered questions, and he does not believe the Government was behind it. I am going to tell you why you do not like Ron Paul and his supporters. It is because we question things that do not make sense and a lot of times it is the actions of the Government that we question. That is our right. You are so comfortable in your bubble of what you think is safety and reality that people like me threaten to burst your bubble. Fox News, Limbaugh, Hannity, Drudge Report all lie to you. There is no investigating or reporting they all serve as entertainment. purposes only, they are companies that are there to make a profit. I support Israel I have relatives there and land in my family. I can also question their actions. You have been lied to. so your homework! Get more sources other than entertainment sources. Research requires multiple creditable sources!

Doesn't make any sense to call Ron Paul the underdog when he's already won more delegates thanRead More Romney in 10 states including Romney's home state! It's Romney who's the underdog at the conventions - it's only the media and the GOP establishment who keep saying Romney's the winner!

well just because THEY didn't see it or hear about it means They must have never been informed.

Provide documentation from a public forum like a newspaper that shows people were informed of theRead More poor water back in the 80's or the superfund sites please.

A past victim of the MDH, MPCA and deep pocket industry: Revised spelling This type of thing isRead More common for the MDH & MPCA. As soon as people start to stand up for there lives, the MDH & MPCA cover there butts, and the butts of there deep pocket friends. I‘ve seen it over and over again in the past 20 years, soon the harassment will set in. The first thing the people of Minnesota need to do is get rid of John Stine the new Commissioner of the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, and Several people at the Environmental Surveillance and Assessment Section within the Minnesota Department of Health Division of Environmental. Next we need to get new State Epidemiologist’s and new Department of Health Commissioners. There are several people in these two departments/agencies that have not done there job for years, but they continue to go up in rank. We need to replace these people with people who care about the health risks associated with pollution in our water, air, and land. If cigarettes are causing all the illnesses in this country, then why are cigarettes not illegal, but for using cigarettes to cover up all the illnesses. Besides, the same chemicals in cigarettes are in industry waste if they can prove cigarettes cause these illnesses then they can prove contaminated water, air and land can cause these same illnesses.

I agree with Greg. Target Arena, Xcel Center,Target Stadium and TCF Bank...everyone came togetherRead More to get these venues built. Why does it have to be so painful to get it done for the Vikings?!
Rebecca Grant April 28, 2012 at 02:07 pm
Yes, Jeremy...you can purchase a $75 ticket....in fact the average ticket price for a Cowboys ticketRead More is $160. I live in Dallas-Ft. Worth, so....this has been a source of controversy since the stadium opened. Fact is, at that price, and that is probably for a preseason game, you will be watching the action in the rafters on a huge jumbo-tron screen which hangs over nearly the whole field. If you really want to watch the game like most people who pay to see live action, you will have to pay dearly for those tickets. There is also an outdoor esplanade with a jumbo-tron, and you can pay to watch it there, too, if you can't afford to purchase an inside ticket. Average cost for that ticket is $150 and it includes some hot dogs or nachos and a drink. Honestly, if you are going to have to watch a game on a TV screen, why not just stay home! These days, you could purchase a nice big wide screen TV for the cost of a family of 4 to go to one game.

Don't get me wrong...I believe The Vikings should get their stadium, and I think Minnesota shouldRead More pony up and help them pay for it. To lose the Vikings would be heartbreaking for the fans. I lived in Cleveland when the Browns up and moved due to a similar "build us a new stadium" issue. It was horrible to witness. There were those who didn't think Art Modell would ever do such a thing. But he did because...it's business for these owners, not personal. The city fought the NFL to retain the rights to the Brown's name and the colors. But the stats stayed with the team, The Baltimore Ravens! It took years for Cleveland to get another team, and the city still had to build a new stadium.
