Tired of your kids playing video games? A Winona native is building a game that they can use while running around some Minnesota parks, according to the Winona Daily News.
In the game, by JackGames.com CEO Jordan Bieber, players can go on virtual quests through the parks while a GPS tracks the player's movement, according to the story. Bieber told the newspaper he plans to release the game as a free iPhone app sometime in March.
The health commissioner extended the hours for his upcoming public forum on adding intractable pain to the list of conditions allowed into the state's medical marijuana program. The public can also submit written comments.
The final decision will be up to Health Commissioner Ed Ehlinger, but if the program expands, the Intractable Pain Advisory Committee hopes there will be additional strictures and precautions for pain patients.
