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 ...

The top Minnesota lawsuits of 2013 2.1.2014 MinnPost
The tale of the tape: 3M and Covington & Burling In this corner: Covington & Burling, the 53rd-largest law firm in the nation and one of the silkiest of silk-stocking law firms in the country. (Eric Holder left the firm in 2009 to become attorney general in the Obama administration.) In the opposite corner: 3M, the pride of Minnesota and progenitor of such archetypal American products as Scotch Brand tape, Post-it Notes, and Scotchgard Fabric Protector. Who would guess these two Brooks Brothers-suited Wall Street darlings would stoop to rabbit-punching each other, rumbling though the courthouse like the Crusher and a former Minnesota governor in the wrestling ring? It wasn’t always that way. From 1992 through 2010, 3M and Covington were a tag team, taking on nasty environmental accusations against 3M by the government, among other cases. High on the list of those allegations were some involving PVC-related contamination. Covington worked with 3M on the dangers of PFC (a kind of ...

More evidence suggests Minnesota manufacturing is on the mend 12.12.2013 MinnPost
AGCO created a video touting its new tractor assembly operation in Jackson, Minn. Upbeat reports from the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) continue to show manufacturing is starting to recover in Minnesota while our state unemployment rate continues to fall . Lee Egerstrom As city officials in Jackson, Minn., will tell you, this holds promise for Minnesota’s economy going forward. “Out here, our employment problem is where to find workers,” said Jennifer Bromeland, Jackson’s city administrator. There are pockets of improvement like Jackson stretching to the Canadian border and along the I-90 corridor to Winona, but there isn't a universal statewide manufacturing comeback, yet. DEED announced in November that 31 businesses statewide revealed third-quarter plans to expand new or existing plants in Minnesota, creating 1,500 new jobs. Of these expansions, 13 are for businesses that federal statisticians call “manufacturing” but don’t include ...

Mankato home sales are strong, but inventory is lacking 4.12.2013 MinnPost
While both sales and sale prices are up in the Mankato area, and mortgage rates remain steady, the only problem remains a lack of inventory Home sales are bucking national trends in the Mankato area, reports Tim Krohn of the Mankato Free Press . While both sales and sale prices are up and mortgage rates remain steady, the only problem remains a lack of inventory, says Jeff Kaul of Century 21 Atwood Realty. “In all of Blue Earth, Nicollet and part of Le Sueur counties there are just 452 active properties for sale,” Krohn wrote. In the first nine months of the year, sales were good and prices increased over 2012. Blue Earth County saw an increase of 34 percent over the first nine months of last year. The average sale price was up 12 percent. In Nicollet County sales through September rose 41 percent and the average sale price increased 2 percent over last year. Krohn listed nine-month sales stats from some other counties: Brown, up 19 percent; Faribault , up 18 percent; Le Sueur , up 18 ...

Which Minnesota cities will receive largest LGA payouts? 14.8.2013 MinnPost
As part of the new budget proposed by Gov. Mark Dayton and passed by the Minnesota Legislature this year, cities were slated to receive an $80 million boost in Local Government Aid (LGA) for the 2014–15 budget year. Last week, the Minnesota Department of Revenue notified city halls across the state about how much LGA they would be receiving. The map below visualizes the amount of 2014 LGA going to cities in Minnesota per capita (population based on the 2010 census): The larger the circle, the more aid the city is set to receive per resident. The cities are divided into three categories by color: red for small cities with populations less than 2,500, blue for medium cities between 2,500 and 10,000 residents, and green for large cities with more than 10,000 residents. ...
