I thought the headphones we were given to hear the microphone equipped tour guide was an excellent idea. The plant itself was awe- inspiring. To see the prod- ucts made in front of our eyes was interesting. Digesting the information about the plant was mind- stimulating, and it was great to see a sector of the econo- my we usually don't have the opportunity to witness. I especially enjoyed the tour of the "War Room." because it was amusing to hear that the company calls it that. but also that the company and all the different plants are serious about communi- cating with each other. I found it very interesting that the goals/objectives of the AGCO corporation were tacked up on the wall in the War Room. I think that shows that the corporation is focused on more things than just pulling a massive profit each year. All in all, the field trip to the AGCO Plant in Jackson was great and a very educational experience about tech writing and how a manufacturing plant oper- ates. el e. news enrolled at Northwestern Walnut Grove is enrolled as a new fresh- College in Saint Paul.

Sexual assault programs seek a holistic approach to the issue of sexual violence By Shelly Hilton Executive Director Pew Horlzons Crlsls Center The Governor has high- lighted his efforts for com- bating sex offenders in the state of Minnesota. These measures include longer sen- tences, better monitoring, and increased civil commit- ments. Although we applaud the Governor in taking these first steps, we ask that the Governor and local legisla- tors partner with New Horizons Crisis Center in developing their policy ini- tiatives to ensure a compre- hensive approach in address- ing sexual violence- one that includes both the criminal justice system response as well as a community educa- tion approach. Recent budget cuts at the state level have made it very difficult for local sexual assault programs through- out the state, including New Horizons Crisis Center, to address community educa- tion as part of their compre- hensive approach. We ask that the Governor look at adding this important com- ponent to his legislative ini- tiatives. It is not only impor- tant to hold offenders accountable, but we must stop the violence before it starts. "We know that for every sex offender there are multiple victims," says Carla Ferrucci from the MN Coalition against Sexual Assault. "We need to spend time at the front end, by debunking natural myths about sexual violence and this can only be done with effective community educa- tion." The sexual assault program at New Horizons Crisis Center will receive a 28% cut in funding begin- ning July 1, 2004. A cut this large will definitely have an impact on the amount of time that can be spent in the schools and communities doing sexual violence pre- vention education. New Horizons Crisis Center looks forward to working with the Governor and our local legislators this session in ensuring that vic- tims of sexual violence get the justice they deserve.
