St. Cloud Mayor Kleis apologizes for the city's past racial problems 21.1.2014 MinnPost
St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis apologized Monday for the city's history of racial intolerance. At a Martin Luther King Jr. Day event, Kleis said the city must take responsibility for racial discrimination in the past, even as it celebrates the accomplishments it has made, said the St. Cloud Times. Positive changes have occurred, other speakers noted, with three black men now holding top civic positions: St. Cloud Police Chief Blair Anderson, Metro Bus Executive Director Ryan Daniel and St. Cloud school district Superintendent Willie L. Jett II. Speakers at the event at St. Cloud State University said such improvements mean the city can no longer be dismissively called "White Cloud," the paper said. The Rev. James Alberts II of Higher Ground Church said he's seen "monumental change" over the years, but that the city now needs to focus on fair housing, education, jobs and transportation. “We are big enough to make a difference and small enough to make this work,” Alberts said. ...

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 ...

E-pulltab revenue hits (another) new low 14.8.2013 MinnPost
This story is becoming about as timeless as “Unrest Roils Middle East.” Tim Nelson of MPR reports: “Another month, another slide for electronic pulltabs. That billion dollar-plus vision the state had back in 2012 seems to be slipping away altogether this summer. The chart [included] shows one of the games’ critical financial markers, the daily ‘per device’ gross sales average, calculated from data provided by the Minnesota Gambling Control Board. That average was projected in 2012 to be $225 for about 15,400 devices across the state. An MPR News analysis of gambling control board data shows that average fell to $43.65 for July — less than 20 cents on the dollar of what was projected.” A few niggling details about money aside … the design for the Vikings' new nearly billion-dollar stadium is good to go . Richard Meryhew of the Strib says: “Development of the $975 million new home for the Minnesota Vikings moved ever so slightly closer to reality Monday when the Minneapolis Planning Commission ...

Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid celebrates 100 years of ensuring access to justice 12.7.2013 MinnPost
One hundred years ago, John Benson opened the doors of a Minneapolis law office meant to help the poor and underserved. Today, that one-lawyer office has morphed into Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid , an organization that has since offered legal help to hundreds of thousands of vulnerable Minnesotans. “That’s our bread and butter, helping one family at a time,” said Cathy Haukedahl, Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid’s executive director. “We truly have the ability to change lives.” Courtesy of Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid John Benson Back in 1913, Benson, an early attorney of the law firm that became Faegre & Benson and is now Faegre Baker Daniels , was the new Legal Aid Department’s sole attorney. After opening its doors on April 15, Legal Aid received contributions from local leaders including John Crosby, Cyrus Northrup, A.F. Pillsbury and Charles Pillsbury.

Kandiyohi County homeless to get help from new group 20.2.2013 MinnPost
Family Promise of Kandiyohi County, a new group modeled after the national program Family Promise, is organizing churches in Willmar and Kandiyohi County to help the homeless find temporary food and shelter, reports David Little of the West Central Tribune . So far, Calvary Lutheran Church, United Methodist Church and Vinje Lutheran Church in Willmar and Svea Lutheran Church in Svea have agreed to participate. Organizers say they need nine more churches to launch the project. The churches feed and house four or five homeless families for one week on a rotating basis so each congregation hosts four times per year. They also offer counseling to identify the underlying causes of homelessness, and national organizers say they have a 70 percent success rate at getting families into permanent housing at half the cost of a typical homeless shelter. Austin cigarette sellers are calling smokers’ bluff about negative reaction to an increased sales tax on cigarettes, according to the Austin Daily Herald . ...

Sales of million-dollar homes bounce back 22.1.2013 MinnPost
I was so worried about this particular market segment … . In the Strib, Jim Buchta writes: “When Ralph and Peggy Burnet put their sprawling Lake Minnetonka estate on the market during the depths of the housing downturn, they knew it could take several years to sell. But less than two years later, the Coldwell Banker Burnet chairman and his wife sold their contemporary manse to an heir of the Cargill fortune for $9.1 million, the most expensive housing transaction in the Twin Cities last year. The deal capped a pivotal year for the upper crust of local real estate, which saw sales of houses priced at $1 million or more jump nearly 20 percent. The gain outpaced the broader market, according to year-end data from the Minneapolis Area Association of Realtors, and it's a sign that the area's wealthiest buyers are gaining more confidence in the economy .” And I thought they had all moved to South Dakota … At the St. Cloud Times, Katie Petrie and Stephanie Dickrell file a story on Minnesota cities’ ...
