Memorials are preferred to the Vernon Mork Scholarship Fund at St Cloud State University or First United to review Duluth libel ruling objected to the use of the word "paved," when technically city crews put new asphalt shavings on the road. He also objected to an editorial that said he showed "wanton disregard of the public trust." The newspaper argued that the articles were substantially correct, that the editorials are protected opinion under the First Amendment, and that LeDoux was a public figure by virtue of his supervisory position with the city. As a public figure, LeDoux would have to prove that any inaccuracies were pub-jished with "actual malice," a higher standard of proof. Attorneys for the newspaper also argued that the word "paved" was insignificant. The jury disagreed, finding state milk house and corncrib remain on about seven acres. Hedges said the City Council views buying the Holz farm as a chance to preserve some of the city history. "Eagan is all so new, we don't have any historic preservation to speak of in our community," Hedges said. "These farms were such an important part of our heritage."
