headphones were not fully plugged into the computer causing another patron to hear what was considered to be “offensive” music“That happens more often than you’d think” said Liz Lynch director of Lake Agassiz Regional Library which includes the Barnesville and Moorhead libraries along with more than a dozen others in northwestern MinnesotaLynch and The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead fielded complaints from the unidentified patron who didn’t want to hear the profane lyrics and didn’t think the teen should eitherBut it appears the library did nothing wrong in allowing the teen to access material that others might find highly objectionableIn fact the American Library Association says denying minors equal access to library resources available to others violates the Library Bill of Rights“Librarians in general are supportive of free access to information and not supportive of censorship” said Sandra Hannahs director of the West Fargo Public LibraryCori Maier of Fargo who visits the downtown Fargo library with 8-year-old daughter Zoe said content decisions should be hers to make“I think it’s up to the parents to monitor what their children are watching or getting” Maier said“Ultimately we can’t be the parent” said Tim Dirks director of the Fargo Public LibraryComputer protectionsThe primary computer protection used byFargo West Fargo and Lake Agassiz Regional Libraries is software that blocks viewing of pornography by patrons of any age“The filters hold out the worst of the worst” Dirks saidUnder the Children’s Internet Protection Act passed by Congress in 2000 if schools and libraries receive certain discounts for Internet access they must filter pictures that are obscene child pornography or harmful to minors (for computers used by minors)Occasionally adults will ask to have the filter turned off in order to find information on a sensitive subject“For instance if someone is doing research on breast cancer the filter may pick up something like that” Lynch said When it comes to computer privileges libraries require civil behavior by all young and oldUnder the Fargo library’s computer use policy enacted in 2008 any disruption including loud or boisterous behavior verbal or physical harassment drunkenness and congregating in large groups is prohibitedViolate the policy once and the patron loses access to library computers for six months Do it a second time and the patron can’t use them for a yearIt’s not a punishment they need to use often“I can’t think of even one this year” Dirks saidR-rated moviesDepending on the library they go to children can check out R-rated movies or will be turned down when trying to do soR-rated titles with heavy sexual content nudity drug use or profanity – including “Knocked Up” “Brokeback Mountain” and “Eyes Wide Shut” – are available for checkout at the Fargo Public LibraryIn Fargo people ages 16 and older can apply for an adult library cardYouths 15 and under need a parent or guardian to sign them up and that adult can say “No DVDs” on the registration formDirks said that option is not widely used by parentsIn effect R-rated fare is accessible to most Fargo Public Library patronsAt the Moorhead and other northwestern Minnesota libraries kids 13 and older can get a library card on their own while a parent must register those 12 and younger; and there’s no movie opt-out on the forms – again meaning access for mostIt’s a different story at the West Fargo Public Library where patrons must be 17 or older and have an adult library card to check out R-rated movies“Because of the norms of the community we’ve always blocked R-rated items” Hannahs saidAdult-themed booksWhile certain movies may be off-limits to the younger set at some libraries printed materials are available to all no matter the subjectFor example if a young teen really wanted to check out the best-selling erotic novel “Fifty Shades of Grey” no library employee would stop him or her said Jenna Kahly youth services coordinator at Lake Agassiz Regional LibraryBut Kahly said she might try to redirect them to a book they’d find more interesting“We want to help families make good decisions but have to uphold ALA (and its Bill of Rights) too” she saidAs for those who think kids have free rein at the library it may be a matter of a generational divide“They think children should be quiet and only be able to look at certain things” Lynch said“Libraries aren’t the quiet place they used to be” Lynch said “and a lot of people have a hard time with that”Nonfarm payrolls rose by 151000 jobs last month after an upwardly revised 275000 increase in July with hiring in manufacturing and construction sectors declining the Labor Department said on Friday The unemployment rate was unchanged at 49 percent as more people entered the labor market"This mixed jobs report puts the Fed in a tricky situation It’s not all around strong enough to assure a September interest rate hike But it’s solid enough to engender a heated policy discussion" said Mohamed el-Erian chief economic adviser at Allianz in Newport Beach CaliforniaEconomists polled by Reuters had forecast payrolls rising 180000 last month and the unemployment rate slipping one-tenth of a percentage point to 48 percentLast month’s jobs gains however could still be sufficient to push the Fed to raise interest rates in December The rise in payrolls reinforces views that the economy has regained speed after almost stalling in the first half of the yearThe report comes more than two weeks before the US central bank’s Sept 20-21 policy meeting Rate hike probabilities for both the September and December meetings rose after remarks last Friday by Fed Chair Janet Yellen that the case for raising rates had strengthened in recent monthsFollowing the report financial markets were pricing in a 27 percent chance of a rate hike this month and a 577 percent probability in December according to the CME Fedwatch toolThe Fed lifted its benchmark overnight interest rate at the end of last year for the first time in nearly a decade but has held it steady since amid concerns over low inflationThe dollar fell against a basket of currencies after the report while prices for US government bonds rose US stock futures rose"As far as the Fed is concerned I don’t think it’s a number that is a major setback for what they ultimately want to achieve which is a slow and gradual pace for a rate normalization" said Jason Celente senior fixed income portfolio manager at Insight Investment in New YorkSEASONAL QUIRKThe step-down in employment growth comes after the economy created a total of 546000 jobs in June and JulyWith the labor market near full employment and the economy’s recovery from the 2007-09 recession showing signs of aging a slowdown in job growth is normal Yellen has said the economy needs to create just under 100000 jobs a month to keep up with population growth The smaller-than-expected rise in payrolls also likely reflects difficulties adjusting the data for seasonal fluctuations related to school calendars Over the last several years the government’s August payrolls estimates have been weak only to be subsequently revised higherRepublican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign team said the numbers were a sign of a disappointing economic performance tied to what a senior campaign adviser called "Clinton globalist policies"The timing of the next rate hike could also be determined by wage growth Average hourly earnings increased three cents or 01 percent in August after a solid 03 percent rise in JulyThe moderation in gains which reflects a calendar quirk pulled down the year-on-year gain to 24 percent from 26 percent in JulyAmericans worked fewer hours last month with the average workweek dipping to 343 hours from 344 hours in July Other details of the report showed the labor force participation rate or the share of working-age Americans who are employed or at least looking for a job unchanged at 628 percent last monthThe participation rate remains near multi-decade lows in part reflecting demographic changes and economists say this partially explains why wage

their gender on their state ID if they don’t identify as either male or femaleWhile there was no formal announcement made by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety the option is available when completing the pre-application for a Minnesota license on its website The online pre-application was implemented Monday Oct 1With no official announcement of this availability there were some that didn’t know about the changeKatrina Koesterman a Moorhead resident and vice president of Tri State Transgender said she didn’t even know about this until Forum News Service spoke to her Wednesday morning Oct 3Nevertheless she believes this process is a progressive step to accepting those who don’t follow the male-female binary"We need more stuff like this to help normalize people that don’t follow the binary so that discrimination can become a thing of the past" Koesterman said"I think it will be talked about within the (LGBTQ+) community and hopefully that will help spread the word"According to a statement by Minnesota DPS Drivers and Services Division "Gender identification is a self-descriptor like eye color height and weight Licenses will have either an M F or X noted in the gender section This change was made during the planning for the new driver’s license system It was a business decision to offer a third option to better serve all Minnesotans In addition other states recognize this designation and the federal government allows it under REAL ID"State Sen Scott Newman R-Hutchinson said the change was made "unilaterally by Democrats" and mentioned he was "concerned that law enforcement may not have been consulted Will this change hamper law enforcement’s ability to properly identify suspects or hinder the investigative process in any way The public deserves answers to these questions or at least a dialogue about the potential repercussions"Kandace Creel Falcon director of Women’s and Gender Studies at Minnesota State University Moorhead also says she didn’t know about the change until contacted by a reporter"I think our news sources are an important part of getting this news out there Word of mouth will be vital in sharing this information with others and folks who are using these documents to change their gender identity are already relying on the community and will communicate" Falcon said "If all you have to do is simply inform a proper government authority that you don’t want to be male or female that process would alleviate a lot of stress from somebody that doesn’t identify with the binary When your ID doesn’t reflect who you are it can be a stressful situation When trying to go to the bar or going to the airport not knowing how people would respond can be worrisome"Falcon says there has been more interest in understanding different genders and this is one of the first steps toward more inclusiveness in Minnesota"In the recent decade there has been an increased interest in gender identities beyond the gender binary of male and female I’m really excited about the possibility of opening up understanding more inclusive ways of gender in Minnesota"Minnesota joins Maine Oregon California Washington and the District of Columbia in offering the new option
