As the heating season kicks in, the Minnesota Department of Commerce and the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (PUC) encourages Minnesotans to contact their utilities now to learn more about the Cold Weather Rule that protects residential utility customers from having their heat shut off during the winter months. The rule takes effect on Oct. 15 and continues through April 15, 2017.

Why did you enter law enforcement, and what has kept you in the field? First and foremost I love this profession. There's an expression that law enforcement is, "A front row seat to the greatest show on earth." We are called into the best of times and deepest troubles people face. The daily challenges are important, necessary, rewarding, and, truthfully, even fun, after all these years. From the time I was drawn to police service in high school to today, the monumental changes in society are reflected in public safety challenges and crime trends.
Why did you enter law enforcement, and what has kept you in the field? I have always been interested in law enforcement, even at a young age. I entered law enforcement because I care. I feel that an officer is in a position to help people and if they can change one person's life it is well worth the sacrifice they have given towards the profession. The thing that keeps driving me is the ability to make a difference. When you respond to a call for help, an accident, or a medical and you see the faces of the people you are helping, you want to do more. That is the driving force.
The Judicial system is facing increasing cost pressures. Other than increased funding, what steps can be taken to increase efficiency in the courts and still afford individuals due process under the law? We mustn't confuse the desire for efficiency with our constitutional mandate to provide effective justice.
The judicialsystem is facing increasing cost pressures. Other than increased funding, what steps can be taken to increase efficiency in the courts and still afford individuals due process under the law? The judiciary is suffering budget constraints, just like everyone else, and we must continue to search for ways to live within those constraints. One way is to reduce unnecessary court hearings. This can be accomplished by increased use of mediation, mandatory settlement conferences and strictly enforcing the rules of civil and criminal procedure.
