As Rep. Bill Hilty (DFL-Finlayson) strode to the table Feb. 12 to advocate funding for land acquisition near Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College, he received some friendly advice from Rep. Tom Rukavina (DFL-Virginia).

Rukavina, chairman of the House Higher Education and Work Force Development Policy and Finance Division, noted that Hilty has a newly replaced hip, but was quickly corrected by Hilty that it is actually two new hips.

“If I’m not mistaken, they’re made out of titanium aren’t they?” Rukavina asked.

“I believe they’re ceramic,” Hilty answered, laughing.

“Don’t fall down, buddy,” Rukavina responded.
