State Senator blasts fellow DFLers for role in Community Action scandal 25.9.2014 MinnPost
A DFL Senator is calling out Rep. Keith Ellison and other party associates for their involvement — or lack thereof — in the Community Action mess. Says Aaron Rupar at City Pages , “Sen. Barb Goodwin (DFL-Columbia Heights), a member of the Senate Finance Committee and vice chair of the Judiciary Committee, says she first raised questions about Community Action's budget back in 1997. In the wake of the recent state audit becoming news, she's calling for the organization's chief executive, Bill Davis, to be criminally prosecuted. … Members of Community Action's board during the time in which funds were allegedly misappropriated included a number of prominent DFLers, including Keith Ellison, state Sen. Jeff Hayden, and Minneapolis City Council President Barb Johnson.” Yeah, a two-page handout should take care of it. The Star Tribune's Libor Jany has a piece on Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau's press conference Wednesday. “Harteau spoke amid lingering criticism for not meeting with concerned residents ...

Firefighters get control of gas line explosion near Warren 28.5.2014 MinnPost
“I’d never heard nothin’ like it in my life. It was just hell on earth, I tell ya, when you see those flames.” Fred Nicholls, 73, lives about one mile away from where an underground gas line ruptured near Warren in northwest Minnesota, creating a fireball and sending flames 100 feet into the air. The Grand Forks Herald had the story covered: The explosion was reported at 6:25 a.m. Monday and involved a gas line about three miles northwest of Warren that is owned by Viking Gas Transmission, based in Eagan. The line runs from Emerson, Manitoba, to Marshfield, Wisconsin. No cause has yet been found. No more than 700 customers are affected. Environmental stewardship does work, at least for the lake sturgeon, once almost extinct in Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River. Brad Dokken of the Duluth News Tribune chatted last week with Tom Heinrich, large-lake specialist for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in Baudette. He and Dennis Topp, the DNR’s assistant area fisheries supervisor in Baudette, ...

Bemidji homeless number greater than expected 7.5.2014 MinnPost
CC/Flickr/Craig Myran Photography There were 666 people identified as homeless in Bemidji in 2012. A new report finds the number of homeless people in the Bemidji area to be greater than expected, reports Crystal Dey of the Bemidji Pioneer . The Nameless Coalition for the Homeless hired Duluth-based Center City Housing to conduct a needs assessment. "What we've learned is your needs are huge," said Rick Klun, CCH executive director. A statewide survey shows that in the 12-county northwest region of the state, which includes Beltrami County, homelessness grew 170 percent from 2009 to 2012. There were 666 people identified as homeless in 2012, according to the study. The survey didn’t include results from the state’s reservations, said Patty Beech, CCH Planning Consultant and primary author of the study. Despite a week of regular rain, the U.S. Drought Monitor rates southwestern Minnesota as experiencing moderate drought conditions. It’s an assessment area farmers concur with, reports Anna Haecherl-Smith ...

Saying knife at school was 'honest mistake,' Wells family argues expulsion is too severe 23.4.2014 MinnPost
Last week, Alyssa Drescher was planning to do a little tanning in preparation for prom. The 17-year-old United South Central student from Wells had some perfume and lotion in her purse, which likely was what caused the drug dog to target her purse during a schoolwide lock down and drug search last Tuesday. Unfortunately, Drescher also had a knife in her purse – a gift from her father that she had used the previous weekend to help cut hay bales at her boyfriend’s family’s farm. Now, Drescher faces expulsion, according to a story by Sarah Stultz in the Austin Daily Herald . Wells police Chief Jim Ratelle indicated the search was routine and said no drugs were found. Her father, Rick Drescher, said the school could have given her a three- to five-day suspension, but now she faces a 12-month expulsion. “She has never had detention. She’s never been scolded. She’s as perfect of a student as you can get,” he said. Alyssa is on the honor roll, is on the school’s varsity volleyball team and has also played ...
