Two months ago, staff and students at the Two Harbors High School got together with community members to begin planning for this year's Rock Solid Robotics season. The team, which competed in the world competition in St. Louis and placed third at the state level last year, has nearly doubled in size. The team has begun to build a the foundation for a new departmentalized structural system, and will be headed to Itasca Community College on Dec. 7 for a pre-season training workshop. As part of the new team structure, six departments will be open for student participation.
This past weekend I drove 1,000 miles round trip from Chicago to Two Harbors to attend a benefit fund raiser for my brother Matt who was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. Matt owns The Pub and the benefit was held at the American Legion. I've always known my brother was a great guy, but the incredible turnout surprised me nevertheless. Your friendship and support for my brother during this very challenging time was inspiring and heartwarming. The donations from local businesses and individuals were also so very generous. What a wonderful community. God bless you.

For over 130 years, mining has been a part of our work, wealth, and cultural history in Minnesota. Like farming, mining has driven the Minnesota economy from our earliest times and continues to be the backbone of our state. I'm proud to represent our mining region. But I was disappointed in my friends at the Lake County DFL for criticizing our Congressman, Rick Nolan, for supporting the National Strategic and Critical Minerals Production Act, HR 761.

It's no accident that holidays featuring lights are celebrated in December. This month Venus and Jupiter--and possibly one comet--crank up the wattage for us. In early December, Venus shines as bright as it ever gets. Hanging like a lantern over the sunset horizon, our brilliant sister planet begins the month as a thick crescent, its face about 30 percent lit. By the end of the month, the crescent has lengthened considerably and thinned to a mere 5 percent of the planet's disk.
