    LaDuke’s home near Ponsford was destroyed in a fire reported about 12:40 p.m. on Nov. 9, according to Roger Wilson, chief of the Carsonville Township Fire Department.

    White Earth's where she's from, eh? Guess I never read any of her political bio's.

    I understand that for around $20k (less than some new cars) a solar power system can make the average home completely energy-independent.
