Ask a Trooper: Selling a vehicle without visible VIN
Q: I am looking to sell a 1955 Ford truck. I noticed the other day that the vehicle identification number plate is missing from the glovebox door (the rivet holes are still there). It must have been lost by the body shop that painted the truck about 15 years ago and is now out of...

An Iron Ranger's View: Creator’s methods of reproduction are evident ... but not the reasons
For nearly half a century, Shirley and I have lived in a secluded but not remote home that is surrounded by hundreds of 70-foot-high red pines. A red pine is also called a Norway pine, although it has nothing to do with Norway. In 1953, it became Minnesota’s state tree. Red pines...
