Honor Guard Funding Discussed

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) A key legislative committee considers a budget request for the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs this week that includes a provision for funding honor guards at military funerals. Gov. Mark Dayton's has proposed $400,000 to help pay for the honor guards, as funding from veteran service

organizations and the federal government dwindles.

The families of about 4,800 Minnesota veterans are expected to request the honor guards at their funerals this year, up by more than 400 from last year.

The Army National Guard has 17 members in teams in Moorhead, St. Cloud, Cottage Grove and Duluth. Each team performs as many as four funerals a day. The funeral honor guard includes a detail of at least two uniformed members who fold and present a U.S. flag and play taps.

No Feed Geese

Written by

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) A proposed ordinance would ban people from feeding geese and other wildlife on public land in Cedar Rapids. The ordinance is aimed at keeping so many geese from staying too long in popular parks and fouling them with excrement.

The city has posted signs against feeding, but those have been largely ignored over the years. The proposed ordinance would put teeth into the punishment for violations: a $75 fine for a first offense, $150 for a second offense and $300 for a third.

The city also will continue its annual roundup of geese, which are then taken to rural areas in other counties.
It's unclear when the City Council will vote on the proposal.
