JIMMY JABBER Flood proved worth of electronic media
Duluth was treated to Mother Natures softer side during Grandmas Marathon weekend so much so that the News Tribune pointed it out in the headline of a follow-up story Monday.

OH LOOK, A SHINY THING! Plagiarism in North Dakota, Minnesota
One of the biggest stories of the day is this sad tale of a 28-year journalism veteran who allegedly plagiarized most of the columns he wrote in North Dakota and Minnesota.

I used to think all those things said about menopause were sort of exaggerated. And then slowly, insidiously everything started to change. My body and brain conspired to turn on me. It was as if my womb were preparing for a giant going-out-of-business sale.
It’s understandable if UND wants to get beyond volleyball coach Ashley Hardee’s resignation and move on. But that mustn’t happen — at least not before an investigation has been completed, the university has reconsidered key policies, and the findings and any policy changes have been announced.
Grand Forks welcomed in the Yule season 50 years ago by lighting the official community tree at the Park E-Z. That was at Third Street and First Avenue North. There was group singing and plans to pipe music of the season into the business area during days of shopping.

As a child, my dream was to someday own a black horse. I read “Black Beauty” and the “Black Stallion” series and watched “Fury” on TV on Saturday mornings, imagining myself on the back of the horse heroes, hanging on to a fistful of mane as they galloped furiously down the road, ears flat back and tail flying like a flag.
Over the next three years, we are going to do a lot of talking about problems on Indian reservations. As a member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., has introduced legislation to create an 11-member, three-year Commission on Native Children.

I was bullied when I was in grade school and middle school. I was tall and skinny, and I wore glasses. For these and other reasons, I was frequently harassed and intimidated. While my methods of dealing with those issues were different than what we recommend these days, I do understand what it is like to be bullied, and I am committed to eliminating bullying to whatever extent possible.
In 2007, the Minnesota Legislature passed a law prohibiting intimidation and bullying in schools. It provides for no accountability and no effective date by which schools must start to comply. No wonder Minnesota’s law is rated dead last — 49th in the nation — in effectiveness.
Here’s hoping today’s columnist Roger Chamberlain reads what today’s other columnist, John Johnson, has to say. Because by pointing to North Dakota’s anti-bullying law, Johnson may have shown Minnesota’s Republicans and Democrats alike the way forward.
If the Iran nuclear program, now several decades old, had really been “halted” shortly after U.S. forces invaded neighboring Iraq, we would not be desperately pursuing agreements to stop it now, as about 10,000 centrifuges spin to enrich uranium.
