Baker calls for more businesses to be allowed to reopen

Baker

(Willmar MN-) As bars and restaurants opened for outside dining across Minnesota this week, Representative Dave Baker of Willmar says he's hearing some complaints from those in the hospitality business. Baker, of Willmar, held a conference call this week...

...Baker also says it's time for Governor Walz to reopen other businesses currently closed by executive order...

...In the meantime, Lance Evans, owner of the Sunray Coffee Pot Cafe north of Willmar, says they opened Tuesday for the first time since March 23rd with 10 tables that he built outside the restaurant...

...Evans says it's been tough, but 20 years in the military taught him to roll with the punches. He also owns the gas station and convenience store, where he's been selling the same food that he sells at the restaurant so they don't have to learn how to cook all over again. Evans says he plans to leave the tables outside even after the governor finally lifts the Stay Safe executive order.
