To the Editor,
On behalf of the University of Minnesota Board of Regents, I wish to thank you for your wonderful hospitality in helping us launch the University of Minnesota sesquicentennial in Lanesboro. The outpouring of support for the ice cream social in beautiful Sylvan Park and for the opera on the Bakke farm was heartwarming. We extend our thanks to everyone in your community and the surrounding area who participated and helped make the weekend a great success. The members of the Board of Regents had a wonderful time in your charming community.

To the Editor,
I would like to publicly thank Senator Kenric Scheevel (Dist. 3I) for working to put unicameral on the ballot and giving the people the right to choose the structure of their government. He supported "letting the people decide" in the face of broad opposition, from almost every interest group lobbying at the Capitol. It takes courage to stand up inside a system and say that it can be better. I commend Senator Scheevel for taking a leadership role and doing the right thing. The unicameral bill passed out of several committees in both the House and the Senate - which is unprecedented - but failed on procedural motions on the House and Senate floors. Despite our best efforts and the fact the 80% of the citizens wanted to vote on the issue, a unicameral amendment will not be on the ballot in November. I still believe that this debate would re-engage citizens and help to restore their confidence in government and elected officials. I regret that we will not have the opportunity to educate people on the bicameral and unicameral systems and to begin a dialogue to decide which system would better serve Minnesota citizens.
