Monday's five most fascinating stories printed on wood pulp:
One 91-year-old grandma is pushing legislation in the Minnesota Senate that would allow her and all the other really old people (90 and up) fish for free in the state. The bill would cost about $16,000 a year. Adult fishing licenses only cost $17 a year. What else should we let our 90+ population do for free?
The 19-year-old who is accused of sexually and psychologically abused nursing home residents will make an appearance today in court. She is one of two young women facing charges in the case that involves incidents from 2008.
They might live just a half block from the Red River, which is known to flood every year to some degree, but most homeowners in the Fargo/Moorhead area would rather not pay for flood insurance. Fewer than 800 have insurance for flood damage, which costs $800 a year. The states have been warning them since 1997 to purchase a policy, but no one is listening. Will they be this stubborn again? Probably.
Delta Air Lines is slowly taking over the Northwest parts of Lindbergh terminal as the two airlines merge.
