NFL: Vikings change tune, suspend Peterson

Weather Forecast

Land at the former Willmar Municipal Airport, now designated for the city's industrial park, could become more attractive to new and emerging high-tech businesses if the Kandiyohi County and City of Willmar Economic Development can put together a group of "angel" investors. Minnesota legislators last month passed a jobs bill that allows tax credits for these investors to help finance business start-ups in the technology sector. Tribune photo by Anne Polta
