WILLMAR -- About 20 area residents met Tuesday to learn how they could try to defeat the proposed amendment to the state Constitution that would define marriage as between one man and one woman. Those who gathered at Doug Wilkowske's home north of Willmar discussed why they oppose the amendment, which will be on the ballot in November's election, and how to talk to people about the issue.

LAKE LILLIAN -- As supper time approached Tuesday, so did 27 bicyclists ready to join area residents for a meal, some conversation and a chance to rest. The cyclists had pedaled 89 miles from Minneapolis, but that was a just a little more riding than a typical day for the group of mostly college students. They have been riding their bikes most days since they left Baltimore in late May with a goal of covering the more than 4,000 miles to Seattle in 70 days. Lake Lillian's visitors are one of three teams riding in the 11th annual 4K for Cancer, a program created to involve young adults in un
