MOORHEAD — U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and Rep. Collin Peterson met with American Crystal Sugar CEO Tom Astrup on Sunday, Oct. 21, to get an update on the beet harvest and emphasize the farm bill they are working to pass. "We've been trying to push this thing," Peterson said, adding they hope to be ready to pass it shortly after the general election towards the end of the year. The proposed bill would protect existing sugar programs, create an animal disease program and vaccine bank, identify gaps in high-speed internet as well as support beginning farmers.
FARGO — Every day, Mark Uselman records the precipitation that lands in his backyard. The north Fargo resident has made observing the weather part of his daily routine for over five years now. He wakes up at 6:30 a.m., does the crossword, has coffee with his wife then goes outside to check the rain or snow gauge, and she goes to teach elementary school. "I measure the precipitation, snowfall, and the cumulative snowfall that's left on the ground as it sets," Uselman said. "I catch the snow, bring it inside to melt, then measure the liquid form."
