AP-Out of the Florida hunt, Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum plans two Midwestern stops Monday, including one in Minnesota. The former Pennsylvania senator is due to hold an afternoon appearance at St. Charles Community College in Cottleville, Mo., followed by an evening event in southwestern Minnesota. His event at a Pizza Ranch in Luverne, Minn., would make him the first 2012 presidential candidate to campaign in the state this year. Minnesota holds its precinct caucuses next week, but the results of a preference poll are nonbinding. Texas Rep. Ron Paul is airing TV ads in the state. Santorum and Paul have all but conceded Florida, where Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich are competing hard for a win Tuesday. Santorum has been off the campaign trail tending to family matters.
Representative Steve Doyle will be hosting a community meeting at the Holmen High School Commons tonight from6 – 7:30 pm on the proposed CapX2020 electric transmission project. The public is invited to learn more about the project and to ask questions.

The Blair Taylor School District is looking at going to a 4-day school week....and they have the approval from the Department of Public Instruction. But before kids start thinking it's a 3-day weekend coming...Superintendent, Dennis Pervetski says think again.
He says students would likely have either Monday or Friday off and classes
would start at about 8 a.m. and end no later than 4 p.m. A firm structure will
come after public meetings are held. If it's approved, they would become the
first district in the state to have 4 day school weeks.
