A: The Trust Fund pro- vides money for a wide vari- ety of projects such as the Reinvest in Minnesota (R/M) program, which protects crit- ical fish and wildlife habitat and related recreational opportunities. Money allo- cated for RIM projects matches private funding raised by private citizens and groups to acquire land for wildlife management areas and aquatic management areas, and other units of the state's outdoor recreation system (e.g. state parks, state scientific and natural areas, state forests), to restore wet- lands and native prairies, and to preserve habitat for rare plant and animal species. Trust Fund dollars enable researchers to identify more effective natural resource protection and management strategies, and collect data that helps develop natural resource policy. Money from the fund is also used for pub- lic education, and to increase awareness and understanding of natural resources. Forty percent of the net proceeds from the Minnesota State Lottery are deposited into the Trust Fund. The money allo- cated from this account may only be used to fund projects of long-term benefit to Minnesota's environment and natural resources. It must supplement, not replace, tra- ditional sources of funding. Kim Hennings, DNR wildlife land acquisition coordinator Monday morning street supervisor, Tom Hansen, was running the city street sweeper at Walnut Grove. The city dump truck was following so the leaves could be hauled away. I With unemployment hov- ering at 9.7% across America, local food pantries are seeing increases in demand for donated food of from 30% to 150%. Florists across central United States intend to do something about it. After 13 years of Caring Rose Week, the program will likely sur- pass a total of three quarters of a million pounds of donat- ed food. During Caring Rose Week, November 14-19, 2011, par- ticipating flower shops deep- ly discount bouquets of one dozen long-stemmed roses, and accept canned goods and other non-perishable foods as partial payment. iltis not a money-maker for us,i said Marilee Toman, a co-owner of Dutch Mill Florists in Bismarck, ND. "We do it because itis the right thing to do." Ms. Toman calls it a win- win-win. "The person who donates the food feels good, and the person who gets the roses feels good, and we feel good, knowing weire helping just before the holidays." Across town at the Abused Adult Resource Center, a local recipient of the donated food, Diane Zainhofski agrees. "Demand [for donat- ed food] goes up in winter months, especially after the holidays. It certainly is a great amount of food. It makes a big difference in our funding." "People bring in more than the requested 2 cans of food. They bring in bags of it," said Ryan Visher of Hope & Faith Floral in Madelia, MN. "The need has never been greater. At each of our stores, it all goes to the local emergency food shelf." The florists in each com- munity choose a local food- distribution charity. Collected canned goods are distributed through the charity to feed those within the community who cannot otherwise meet their nutritional needs. Coming at the onset of sea- sonally cold weather, the pro- gram helps food-distribution programs when families begin to experience the great- est financial pressure. Begun in 1998, Caring Rose Week was created by Harry Whelden, General Manager of North American Wholesale Florists in Sioux Falls, SD. A former food- industry businessman, Whelden took an interest in iNational Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Weeki sponsored by the National Coalition for the Homeless and the National Student Campaign Against Hunger & Homelessness which takes place each year one week before Thanksgiving. "For us to hit 750,000 pounds of food this year, the thanks go out to over 350 flower shops across the Great Plains who take the time and energy to help meet this need," says Whelden. "Amid Christmas gifts like toys and jewelry, many across America are going hungry. Weire try- ing to do our part." "It comes at a time when our shelves are getting empty," said Cindy Sahli, who runs the Edmunds County Food Pantry in Ipswitch, SD. "September is a busy month, so we need the food before the holidays." "We took 37 boxes of food to our local pantry," said Lynn Gauer, owner of the Petal Pushers in Ipswich, who also uses the event to raise money for local non- profit groups. "First they wondered where they were going to put it all. Everything but the turkey. But other busi- ness in town catch the spirit, and donate the rest of the meal. It feels like the whole town catches on."
