I am now a simple Grandpa who's life is made richer as each grandchild is born. My wife and I have raised five children and the 30 year love labor of raising them has begun to yield sweet fruit..... And then there are fruits of 30 years in ministry ... I am a satisfied old man full of the joy of the Lord.

Small Towns In Minnesota Begin Video Monitoring

Sanborn, Minnesota is the latest of a growing number of small towns in Minnesota that have invested in video surveillance equipment. Sanborn has a population of 418 yet it has nine cameras monitoring all four streets leading into town.

These video systems are being bought with federal Homeland Security funds. They are not meant to spy on residents but instead to watch for drug problems, anhydrous ammonia thefts and major crime. They retain copies of activity for up to two weeks.

Minneapolis now has 29 cameras downtown. But other towns, around the world, have many more. London, for example, has over 6000 in it's subways alone.
