The Enbridge Line 3 Replacement Project is necessary and beneficial to Minnesota and in the national interest. It will ensure the continued safe, reliable and economic delivery of energy needed by people in the region and other parts of the country. This was confirmed by the recent recommendation of Administrative Law Judge Ann O'Reilly, who recognizes the need to replace this critical piece of infrastructure and the economic importance a modernized Line 3 will have across the state. The ALJ said replacement of Line 3 is "reasonable and prudent."
Congratulations to the Class of 2018 on your graduation from high school. It is an accomplishment. You should be very proud of yourselves, and please know that your community and loved ones are proud of you, too. As you go off to jobs, college, the military, trade school, gallivanting or however you choose to begin adulthood, we'd like to offer some words of advice.

The question has to be asked: Why has our school got to the point it will take millions and millions to fix it? Who was in charge? Ask. If you don't want the status quo, call the school board and support those who voted "no," as they need the community support. If you're fine with the way it is, do nothing. One thing is certain: If we don't fix our school, we will lose it. Can we do it?
I am quite the cutie pie with my gorgeous orange tabby markings and extra toes on my front left foot. I arrived to Friends of Animals as a stray and I am a little over a year old.
