We've all experienced it at least once in our lives: That sudden onset of queasiness that quickly escalates into a full-fledged gastro-intestinal apocalypse. Fortunately, for most, food poisoning runs its course in about 24 hours with no lasting effects.

2016 was a rough year for pedestrians. More pedestrians were killed than any other year in the past quarter-century, according to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.
It's one of the most dangerous times of year for Minnesota drivers. When temperatures plummet for days on end, the potential for black ice increases exponentially. This nearly invisible hazard contributes to deadly accidents every year. In fact, across the country, more than 100,000 people are injured each year due to winter weather conditions.
Drunk driving takes a toll that no amount of money can fix - especially in a case that left one child dead and another paralyzed.
You know how the old joke goes? Minnesota has two seasons: winter and road construction. While we tend to laugh at this joke, we quickly become serious when it comes time for us to sit in traffic, frustrated at the inconvenience. Most of the time, construction just presents an obstacle to our day. The orange cones have come to represent tardiness, stress, and complication. Usually we get over these disruptions when traffic thins out. However, when we aren't careful, road construction can present drivers and road workers with lasting problems.

A few years ago, our firm represented a family who lost their college age daughter while she was at school. She was a beautiful and intelligent young lady who went out with friends to celebrate her birthday. She was over served alcohol, and tragically died. She cannot be brought back, but there are a few lessons to be learned, and words to be passed on.
Last week, Target confirmed a security breach that took place between November 27th and December 15th. During this time, data was stolen from forty million shoppers who used debit cards and credit cards in their U.S. stores. Those who shopped online or in Canada were not affected. Cybercriminals focused on the point-of-sale systems used at Target's checkout lanes, which collect information from credit and debit cards. They were able to access customer names, credit and debit card numbers, and card expiration dates and CVVs. The Secret Service is now investigating what happened. It is important to be aware of the potential consequences so that proper action can be taken.
