Also mourning Larry’s loss is his longtime devoted and loving significant other, Vicki Schraber. Larry’s distinguished legal career spanned 50 years during which he was known for his legal talents, ethical standards, tenacity, and his compassion for others. He fought hard for his clients until recent months when he fought valiantly for his own life. He was one of the country’s experts on Indian treaty law which he used in support of the defendants of Wounded Knee, the restoration of tribal sovereignty for the Delaware Indians and the many other struggles of the American Indian Movement (AIM). Larry led a full life beyond his professional career. He was an avid reader and Vice Sheik of the local Laurel and Hardy Club. He was a collector of memorabilia and art relating to Laurel and Hardy, other noteworthy entertainers and to Walt Disney. Larry co-owned and ran a 100 acre campground where he spent summer weekends tending to his garden and hosting family and his many friends.

On Inauguration Day Friday, January 20th 2017 at 2:30pm CST. Will be meeting on the corner of Franklin Ave. And Chicago Ave. in South Minneapolis for the BLACK SNAKE RESISTANCE MARCH! This will give everyone a little time to get to our starting point before we march.
We want to express that this march is against not only the newly elected president Trump but also the system as whole that cradles and supports such racism and bigotry that has furthered the oppression of people through the school to prison pipeline and the oil pipelines, IT IS ALL CONNECTED, the system is one big cycle of oppression that keeps feeding us garbage. Trump is also a huge supporter in oil pipelines and in the recent past had investments into KXL and Dakota Access to name a couple. He has made many accusations that no one is willing to listen to and we all must resist Trump and the system that keeps supporting the destruction of people and environment.
Please join our fight in bringing in the new year with an awareness of constant resistance against those choose to align themselves with destroying the water, land, air, animals and people.

Anne Patricia Felix, 78, of Prior Lake, MN, formerly of Hibbing and Grand Rapids, passed away on Thursday, January 12, 2017 after gracefully but stubbornly battling bile duct cancer for three years. She died peacefully and with dignity at home with loving family members by her side, just as she had wished.
Anne was born November 1, 1938, to Clement and Florence Felix in Jordan, MN and grew up in Prior Lake, graduating from Prior Lake High School in 1957.
Anne was a charismatic and influential person to everyone she met. She had the biggest impact on her three children. Her story is one of resilience, strength, and persistence. She bravely chose the path of a single, working mother in order provide a better life for her family. She worked for many years at Hibbing Memorial Medical Center as a registered nurse after receiving her degree from Hibbing Community College. She later continued her education at the College of Saint Scholastica and worked as a nurse in Duluth and Grand Rapids. Anne loved to read, garden, line dance, perform in community theatre, and care for all kinds of animals, especially chickens. She also loved spending time with her coffee ladies who were there for her always, and especially at the end of her life. Anne was proud of her Dakota Sioux ancestry, participating in regional events commemorating the history of her people. She was active politically and, as a loyal DFL delegate, vocally and energetically stood up for her beliefs. She worked tirelessly to uphold women’s rights, civil rights, and the ideal that a strong country takes care of its most vulnerable people.
She is preceded in death by her parents and niece, Sheila Lynch. She is survived by children Danielle (Rick) Stanich of Hermantown, MN, David (Kathanne) Thompson of Duluth, Dana (Sean Sherman) Thompson of Minneapolis, grandchildren Kellen (Emily) Bolander, Kyle (Melissa) Bolander, Sam Thompson, Evie Odden, Jack Thompson, Cally Stanich, Mattie Thompson, and her siblings Mary, Clem, Fran, Jane Lynch, Florence Luzar, Dennis, Michael and Margaret Todd as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.
