Luke Doubler -- From page1 Luke said arena ball is played mostly in converted hockey arenas. The field is much smaller and has padded side boards. The end- zones have nets to deflect kickoffs which players can play the ball from. With a much smaller field only eight men play on a team. 'qnae game is really loose'" said Doubler. "On offense you can have three men in motion, the four line- men pretty much stay in place on most plays." Blocking is pretty much straight forward. Most plays are either straight run or pass plays. "Nothing fancy although you might see something different near the goal line. On defense you can only blitz one person other than the rushing dowfi linemen. Defensive backs can chuck the receivers against the boards, all the way down the field. Receivers can touch the boards while going down field but they are considered out of bounds when a defen- sive player contacts the receiver or runner against the boards. There is no punts, but they do kick field goals although the uprights are much narrower than the standard ones.

Some peo- ple actually have fun creat- ing new words that tickle the funny bone. Thanks to Chuck Hunt, editor of The Tyler Journal for the follow- ing article. The Washington Post's Style Invitational once agaln asked readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtract- hag, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition. Here are some .of the 2003 winners. Intaxication: Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realize it was Buy, Sell, or Rent in the Classified ads Sentinel Tribune Ph. 274-6136 1-800-410-1859 State Legislators welcome input from constituents By Carolyn Van Loh Sentinel Tribune Everyone complains about new laws and state budget numbers, but how many of those complainers go to the lawmakers and the budget planners? Legislators and congress- men need and welcome input from the people who elected them into office. The state legislature is currently in its third week, but it isn't too soon to make our thoughts known to our elected official s. Wednesday, February 11, a number of chartered buses from southwestern and south central Minnesota took farmers and other interested rural residents to St. Paul. This particular trip, sponsored by the Minnesota Farm Bureau(MFBF), provided an opportunity for legislators to meet with a group of people with similar concerns. Rural Minnesota con- tinues to lose representation in the state legislature. The MFBF has established the Adopt-A-Legislator program to help educate metropolitan legislators on rural issues and concerns. County Farm Bureaus who partici- pate in the program are assigned a non-rural legisla- tor. It is that county's responsibility to get acquainted with their adopt- ed legislator and educate him on rural issues. Senator Charles Wiger, metropolitan state senator, looks to District 22 Senator Jim Vickerman for infor- mation on rural issues in the state Senate. District 22 Senator Jim Vickerman and North St. Paul Senator Charles Wiger have adjoining offices. Senator Wiger is Nobles County's adopted legislator, but he also depends on Senator Vickerman to explain legislation on rural issues. Wiger listened to most of the discussion in Vickerman's office between Vickerman and his rural vis- itors. District 22 representa- tives Elaine Harder and Doug Magnus held a com- bined meeting to discuss concerns. One issue near the top of the list for rural people is the Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP). Even Governor Pawlenty's office was surprised to learn that the CREP issue has united most farm organizations in opposition to one provision of the program. The Governor supports permanent ease- ments, but rural organiza- tions are opposed to them. Nearly every day there is at least one delegation or special interest group mak- ing their concerns known to legislators. Some groups are small, some are large, but all of them have an impact on proposed legislation. It's all part of the political process. It's a way to make our voice heard as a responsible citi- zen. District 22 state representatives Doug Magnus and Elaine Harder were happy to have a number of farmers from their district meet with them on February 11. your money to start with.
