  • Sen. Lyle Koenen joined Montevideo veterans, government employees, council members, county commissioners, and numerous community members in a packed American Legion Post 59 to talk about ways to help push forward a veterans home project for Montevideo.  Marv Garbe (left) helped keep the meeting organized. Sen. Koenen told the crowd about the value of calling and writing representatives, committee member and state officials. The group also discussed the possibility of working with Bemidji, another city in the running for such a home, on a joint proposal. Montevideo is the only city with a fully-prepared plan, but Bemidji may have a stronger political position. (Staff photo by Jeremy Jones)
