(St. Paul, MN)  --  State Representative John Lesch (LESH) says he'll introduce a bill to protect domestic violence survivors in Minnesota next session.  His proposal comes after the state Court of Appeals ruled Minnesota's law prohibiting stalking-by-telephone is overly broad and unconstitutional.  The decision was in a Rice County case where a man left angry phone messages for government officials.  Representative Lesch says "I think there is a different level of free speech protections when you are speaking to a government official than if you're just speaking to another individual."  The St. Paul Democrat says there are the votes in the House to pass his bill.

Extreme weather conditions and moisture levels can reduce yields and induce plant stress, and they can also lead to future issues for the crop, including molds and mycotoxins. Increased moisture can allow Fusarium molds to flourish, producing a variety of mycotoxins that include deoxynivalenol (DON), fusaric acid, T-2, HT-2 and zearalenone (ZEN).
