Miller gets Republican endorsement; will challenge Falk in District 17A

Republican Tim Miller will get another chance to unseat incumbent Democratic-Farmer-Labor Rep. Andrew Falk in Minnesota House District 17A this fall.
Miller, a resident of Prinsburg, was endorsed by Republicans Saturday at their district convention in Benson. He won the endorsement over retired MACCRAY High School teacher and coach Gary Nelson receiving 66 percent of the vote on the first ballot.
District 17A is made up of Swift and Chippewa counties, most of Renville County, and the four southwestern Kandiyohi County townships of Edwards, Holland, Roseland and Lake Lillian.
Falk, of rural Murdock, won a third term in the Minnesota House defeating challenger Miller in the November 2012 race. It was the first election in the newly-drawn state House districts based on the 2010 Census. Falk won two elections in the old District 20A House district.

Highway 29 detour starts in July

Starting in July, the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) will be milling down 11 miles of Minnesota Highway 29 south from the Benson city limits to Minnesota Highway 40. It will also be replacing three bridges.
It is estimated the $6.5 million project will be completed in October. During the nearly four months that the work is underway, the highway will be closed.
That will mean traffic heading south from Benson will be detoured. The MnDot official detour out of Benson has drivers taking U.S. Highway 12 east to DeGraff where they will be detoured on Swift County 31 south. The highway becomes Chippewa County 4 7.7 miles south of DeGraff. It is then another 3 miles to Minnesota Highway 40. Drivers will take a right on Highway 40 and travel 6 miles west to where Highway 40 and Minnesota Highway 29 join.
