Minnesotans who might have forgotten about windchill are about to get a refresher.
Ending a five-week stretch temperatures well above normal, a low-pressure system from Saskatchewan surged Into northwestern Minnesota an Thursday, dragging temperatures below zero and windchills toward 40 below zero.
Bemidji reported 4 below at 8:30 p.m., with strong winds. Mid-evening readings ranged from 5 above in Marshall to 6 below in Roseau. The Twin Cities should get off easy by comparison, though residents might still want to search for extra layers and face coverings. Temperatures were expected to fall overnght from Thursday's high of 37, and a predicted high in the teens today will feel closer to zero. Tonight's predicted low of 1 above would be the lowest temperature since a low of I below on Dec. 7.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Re "Cold comfort on the street," Jan. 7
Thanks for the ongoing ankles on downtown L.A.'s mosaic of peopk who compose the homeless population. Although we may often paint the homeless with a broad brush dipped in prejudice, these articles allow us to see why people end up losing their houses and how the majority of the homeless end up in downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood or Santa Monica, where the majority of homeless services are located. It might be interesting to point out the myriad laws that allow such cities as Beverly Hills, Rancho Palos Verdes and San Marino to cast out the homeless from their boundaries.

Plot summary for Runaway Bride
Ike Graham, New York columnist, always writes his text at the last minute. This time, a drunken man in his favorite bar tells Ike about Maggie Carpenter, a woman who always flees from her grooms in the last possible moment. Ike, who does not have the best opinion about females anyway, writes an offensive column without researching the subject thoroughly. The next day, Ike gets fired by his publisher (and former wife), because he went too far and faked the facts, which real journalists don't do. Ike's only way back into the business now is to do a fact-based report on Maggie and her upcoming fourth wedding attempt, which Ike predicts to fail again. So, as Ike circles Maggie, his prey-to-be, like a vulture, her opinion of him sinks to below zero. Not only is Ike waiting for her to fail again but the whole town is poking fun at Maggie about her mistakes. But that is a point which Ike doesn't like.
REVIEW FOR RUNAWAY BRIDE
RUNAWAY BRIDE begins with an interesting enough concept and that's where it stays. It's pretty obvious to the audience, and would be to any women with a brain, why "the bride" keeps leaving men standing like idiots at the altar. It's not hard to figure out. She's going to keep running until she finally discovers who SHE really is and stops trying to be what the men she chooses want her to be. If I figured this out in the first 5 minutes, why do I have to watch the rest of the film? Why exactly? This film never even tries to scratch the surface of these characters, replying on the premise that a bride running from the church, using various modes of transportation, will be engaging and funny enough to keep the audience interested. It's not. There was no suspense about whether or not she would actually go through with the ceremonies because it was obvious she wouldn't until she found herself, even after she found the man for her

Writing a 'thank you' note after an employment interview, can be the key to getting a job offer. In these days of electronic communication, is it appropriate to send thank you letters by email? In most cases, yes. You can get your thank you letter out immediately, rather than have to wait for the postal service to deliver it. If the employer is making a quick hiring decious, time is of the essence. If there is no sense of urgency, you may still want to send a quick thank you email, along with a triaditional letter or note. You'll be reiterating your interest in the position sooner rather than later
