Grants available for supportive housing services

Applications are being accepted for new grants to help people living with serious mental illnesses, and who are homeless or at risk for homelessness, find and keep permanent housing. The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) is especially interested in hearing from organizations who serve people of color and other underserved communities. People of color — particularly African Americans, American Indians, and Latinos — are disproportionately affected by homelessness. A 2015 study found that statewide, 39 percent of adults...

Chicago police to Trump: Tell us about your 'magic bullet' to stop crime

A week after Donald Trump said he believed police in Chicago could stop the increasing levels of violence in the city by being “much tougher” — and implied there was a way to accomplish this feat in a week — the city’s top cop responded by urging him to offer any “magic bullet” he may have. Trump has repeatedly invoked Chicago’s bloodshed on the campaign trail, part of an overall effort he has made to frame himself as the law-and-order candidate in his race against Hillary Clinton. During public appearances and on social...

Clinton aide Abedin dumps husband Weiner over new scandal

NEW YORK — Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin is done playing the good wife to Anthony Weiner, announcing Monday she is leaving the serially sexting ex-congressman after he was accused of sending raunchy photos and messages to yet another woman. Abedin, who as vice chair of Clinton's campaign is destined for big things if the Democrat is elected president, stayed with Weiner after a sexting scandal led him to resign from Congress in 2011 and after a new outbreak of online misbehavior wrecked his bid for New York mayor in 2013. She didn't...

Editorial counterpoint: What we lose if we lose the Clinton Foundation

Costa Kiggundu came to mind when I read the Star Tribune’s Aug. 28 editorial (“Shut down the Clinton Foundation”). She is a woman I interviewed in 2008 in a gritty slum of Kampala, Uganda. As I always do when people in other countries grant interviews, I began our meeting by saying: “I plan to ask you many questions, so it’s only fair for you to do the same. Is there anything you would like to ask me?” Over the years, no interviewee has turned down that offer. Do I have children? Do I like their country? What is my favorite food?...

What one man learned when his daughter was harassed on Hennepin Avenue

Earlier this summer, my daughter participated in her first professional dance intensive, a rigorous training program. It wasn’t in New York or San Francisco or anywhere fancy. It was in Minneapolis at the Cowles Center on Hennepin Avenue. She was selected as the lone high school participant, a source of pride for her. Her excitement gave her mother and me no small measure of joy, almost enough to erase the reminder that she is growing up and soon will make her way out into the world. We will see less of her. She will need less from us. Our...
