Hundreds of New Richmond High School students hit the streets on Friday, May 17, to take part in Service Learning Day. This marked the 10th year of the annual event, which is designed to get students out of the classroom and into the community where they can apply their learned skills to various community service projects. Friday wasn't the nicest day the students have seen for the event, but organizer and teacher Trish Moberg said she was happy there wasn't snow on the ground.

New Richmond is "barking" loud and clear for its planned local dog park. On May 1, PetSafe launched its third annual "Bark for Your Park" nationwide contest through which cities across the U.S. can win funding to build local dog parks. By the end of summer, five U.S. cities will share in $200,000 in funding for local off-leash dog parks. To be eligible to become a finalist, each city must provide documentation of land availability and civic leader support for the proposed dog park.
To the Editor: What can I say? Intentional or otherwise, the article written by Jeff Holmquist for the New Richmond News is such an example of journalistic deception for the voting public. See the "Nursing home finances turning around" article. Slow down and read that article carefully. Doesn't it give the reader the impression that the normal $1.5 million or more loss each year has been solved? Well, it's just not true. A number of deceptive lines lead the readers to come to a completely false conclusion.

MADISON -- About 63,000 Wisconsinites would have to get work or job training to keep their food stamp benefits under a state budget measure endorsed Tuesday. The Legislature's Joint Finance Committee voted 12-to-4, with all Democrats voting no, to make childless adults either work 20 hours a week or get job training, in order to keep their Food-Share assistance. Assembly Democrat Cory Mason of Racine called it a "mean-spirited" attack on the poor. The Legislative Fiscal Bureau estimates that about 31,000 recipients would drop out of the Food-Share program.
Credit Forum News Service Minnesota Franken challenges Energy Department on gas prices WASHINGTON -- U.S. Sen. Al Franken is blaming the recent spike in Minnesota gas prices in part on the Department of Energy's decision to stop publishing refinery maintenance reports two years ago. The reports, authorized under the 2007 Energy Independence and Security Act, were intended to help oil companies avoid shutting down multiple refineries in the same region of the country at the same time.
Several high-profile items in the proposed state budget will be up for committee endorsements Tuesday. The Joint Finance panel is expected to decide whether childless adults on food stamps should lose their benefits if they don't spend 20 hours a week searching and training for new jobs.
