"While my devotion to music is deep and intense, my favorite thing is, and has always been, food." -Edward Kelsey Moore, professional cellist and author
With a career as both a cellist and an author, Edward Kelsey Moore is often asked which is his first love, music or writing? The answer lies elsewhere. 'My favorite thing is, and has always been, food,' Moore writes in this humorous (and appetite-whetting) essay.

After tying for first place last year, Minneapolis narrowly beat out St. Paul for the title of America's best park system, according to The Trust for Public Land.

The conservation group released its 2016 ParkScore Index Thursday, which analyzes parks in the 100 largest cities in the United States. Minneapolis scored 86.5 points while St. Paul had 82.5.
The two cities tied last year for the top spot. Rounding out the top five are Washington, D.C.; Arlington, Va.; and San Francisco

Currently the DNR has plans for 128 deer permit areas across the state. Since 2012 it's been working with local advisory teams to re-establish population goals for those areas. But the state has no "overarching" deer management strategy, acknowledged DNR wildlife section chief Paul Telander.
An Office of the Legislative Auditor report commends aspects of Minnesota's deer management, but calls on the DNR to establish a statewide plan and improve how it sets goals.

Minneapolis and St. Paul officials are keeping a close watch on the national debate over lead and preparing for possible new federal drinking water rules that could come within the year.
The city's ambitious plan to get rid of thousands of lead service lines isn't a perfect solution to removing lead from drinking water, but it's progress.

Christensen got his lights from Once, a Plymouth, Minn., firm that makes bulbs that generate light that seems natural to chickens, turkeys, pigs and other livestock. And that light, the company says, means happier, healthier, and bigger animals.
What kind of light bulbs do you prefer? Something warmer or cooler? Light matters to a lot of people. Animals, too, as it turns out.

A memo provided by the county says officials have since spent $200,000 to add more than 100 security cameras and instituted GPS monitoring for all boys at Totem Town. The memo, from county corrections director John Klavins, also says there are:

• Supervisory changes and better staff training
• Redesigned mental health services
• Enhanced cognitive-behavioral programming
• A new oversight committee structure

Judges have also asked for regular updates on clients at the facility, reports on how Totem Town is operating and quarterly updates to judges on programming and services.
The move comes two months after judges said they were concerned about security and programming there. But a Ramsey County memo says officials have since added security cameras and instituted GPS monitoring for the boys.

In 1971, Congress declared Memorial Day a national holiday, designating the last Monday of May as a day to honor the country's fallen service members.

The roots of the day, however, stretch back a century before to the first years after the Civil War. Beginning in 1868, communities around the country celebrated Decoration Day on May 30 by placing flowers on the graves of fallen soldiers.

Explore the history of the day through archive photos on MPR News!
St. Paul held its first parade for Memorial Day, then called Decoration Day, in 1870.

Need inspiration from a living Veteran? Meet Joseph Buhain, who tells his own story: http://ow.ly/6KxL300DoSP
What is my story? Many people ask about who I am and what I have done in my life. Well, to begin, I was born in the Philippines and a immigrant of the United States. I applied and received my citizenship when I was younger and my parents took the path of educational freedom and success to help us better our lives in this country. I traveled the world and lives in areas such as Orlando, Florida and Brooklyn, New York. My parents are Filipinos and ...

"It could be something as minor as hiding a recent purchase or something more significant, like hiding a bank account. There are sometimes pleasant surprises, such as money set aside for a gift or trip, but those who study the matter say it's typically more devious. And experts warn that financial deception, no matter the scale, can cause damage — or even end — a relationship."

Do you hide or withhold money information from your partner?
A new study finds that two in five Americans who have combined finances admit to lying to their partner or hiding information about money matters -- and it's on the rise.

The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service says Minnesota is one of the top five states in the nation for participation in the conservation easement program.

In the most recent signup this year, NRCS approved $2 million in projects for Minnesota, but that covered only one-fourth of the offers from landowners who wanted to participate in the program.
On Tuesday, state and federal officials marked the 1,000th easement in Minnesota at a ceremony near Moorhead, Minn.
