Muslim inmates sue Cass County Jail, claim they were fed pork

FARGO—Four Muslim inmates have sued the Cass County Jail and several of its jailers, claiming they secretly were fed pork, according to a complaint filed in federal court. Jail officials declared its meals were pork-free in November 2015, according to the complaint, but continued pork to serve inmates, including Muslims whose religion prohibits them from eating pork, the inmates allege in their hand-written lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Fargo. "We believe that having kitchen staff prepare separate meals for Muslim inmates was...

A New Richmond teenager rode her bicycle 11 miles to the home of her brother’s girlfriend, slipped inside, awakened the girl and went on an hours-long assault that included cutting the victim’s throat before leaving her for dead, according to charges filed Thursday in St. Croix County Circuit Court.

At Big Sandy Lake, Ojibwe recall horror of ancestors' death march

AITKIN COUNTY — Ojibwe stories passed down over generations say the west side of Big Sandy Lake appeared white from a distance in the summer of 1851, like it was covered in snow. But it wasn't snow. "It was as if the snow was still there because you had bodies wrapped in birch bark and the hill was still white," said Jim Zorn as he and others paddled Wednesday across the lake to a memorial site commemorating one of the darkest times in Ojibwe history. More than 400 Native Americans died in the winter of 1850 after the government failed to...

Playoff holes help narrow field at the Birchmont

BEMIDJI — Extra holes were needed in multiple matches to help whittle down the men’s championship field to eight contestants at the Birchmont Golf Tournament at the Bemidji Town and Country Club on Thursday. Back-to-back matches involving Bemidji golfers went to sudden death Thursday afternoon. Bemidji’s Toby Palmiscno prevailed in 19 holes over Grand Forks’ Adam Van Raden, who took down defending champion Nick Schaefer in the first round of match play on Wednesday. “It was back and forth the whole round. Adam played well and I...

Amazon starts alcohol deliveries to Prime Now customers in Twin Cities

Amazon.com Inc. started delivery of beer, wine and liquor in the Twin Cities Thursday in partnership with Surdyk’s Liquor & Cheese Shop, a fixture in northeast Minneapolis for eight decades. By noon, the flow of orders had topped expectations and Amazon asked Surdyk’s whether it could expand a limit Amazon had set of 40 per hour. “I said yes,” said Melissa Surdyk, a fourth-generation member of the founding family. “We have the people to help, and we’ve been able to pick [orders] quickly.” http://www.startribune...

Warm Springs Tribe Hopes Its Cannabis Company Brings Jobs, Not a Federal Crackdown

Devontre Thomas' marijuana-possession case includes a twist: The very tribe he is a member of is poised to become one of the first in the nation to successfully dive into the legal cannabis business. The Warm Springs tribe hopes to open a 36,000-square-foot cannabis cultivation, extraction and wholesaling facility on reservation land in the next year—a project approved by a majority vote of tribal members and coordinated with Gov. Kate Brown's office. The Warm Springs tribe believes getting into the pot business will bring jobs to an area...

Hillary Clinton promises steady hand in dangerous world

PHILADELPHIA — Promising Americans a steady hand, Hillary Clinton cast herself Thursday night as a unifier for divided times, an experienced leader steeled for a volatile world. She aggressively challenged Republican Donald Trump's ability to do the same. "Imagine him in the Oval Office facing a real crisis," Clinton said as she accepted the Democratic nomination for president. "A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons." Clinton took the stage to roaring applause from flag-waving delegates on the final...

Clinton: With no ceilings, 'the sky's the limit'

To thundering cheers of delegates at the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Clinton noted that she's made history by becoming the first woman of a major U.S. political party to be nominated for president, saying "the sky is the limit." http://video.startribune.com/clinton-with-no-ceilings-the-sky-s-...

Clinton to Trump: You don't represent the real America. I do

PHILADELPHIA — When Hillary Clinton stepped to the podium on the final night of the 2016 Democratic National Convention to accept her party’s nomination for president, she attempted to do something that Democrats have rarely, if ever, succeeding in doing. She tried to convince America that she was, as Sarah Palin would put it, the only real American in the race. “Here’s the sad truth: There is no other Donald Trump,” Clinton said. “This is it. And in the end, it comes down to what Donald Trump doesn’t get: that America is great...

Democrats Are Spotlighting A Big Education Problem Pushing Kids Out Of School

Democrats are giving unprecedented attention to a phenomenon that pushes kids out of school and into the criminal justice system. The Democratic Party platform calls for putting a stop to the school-to-prison pipeline, for the first time ever. The platform, finalized this month, reads: “We believe a good education is a basic right of all Americans, no matter what zip code they live in. We will end the school-to-prison pipeline and build a cradle-to-college pipeline instead, where every child can live up to his or her God-given potential.”...

Native Americans At DNC 2016: Delegates Say Hillary Clinton's Substance Must Match Diversity Seen In Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA -- Native American tribal leader Edward D. Manuel, 69, stood in the hallways of the Democratic National Convention this week and marveled at the diversity. In conventions past, the descendants of native people were scarcely seen. But this year, seeing a delegate wearing a purple and black patterned tribal dress shirt over an Oxford, as Manuel did Wednesday, was no surprise. “The last time I was in the DNC, in 2000, there were so few different people involved,” Manuel, chairman of the Tohono O’Odham tribe in southern Arizona...

Minneapolis city attorney says council should block $15 minimum wage vote

Workers’ groups hoping to make Minneapolis’ minimum wage one of the highest in the country hit a major obstacle Thursday as the city’s lawyer said the advocates’ ballot petition does not meet legal requirements. In a 16-page written opinion, City Attorney Susan Segal said the petition to let voters decide if the city should amend its charter to set a $15-an-hour minimum wage does not fit into the narrow window of city government issues that can be altered by a popular vote. Minneapolis’ charter does not allow for direct citizen...

Native Democrats make urgent case for Hillary Clinton as president

Native activists and Native Democrats mounted urgent defenses of Hillary Clinton on Wednesday, warning of disaster should Republican rival Donald Trump win the 2016 presidential election. Even passionate supporters of Bernie Sanders are vowing to help elect Clinton. While some remain upset that their candidate of choice did not secure the party's nomination, they said Indian Country must stand together to defeat a candidate who has a negative record when it comes to tribal matters, whether it's questioning the identity of indigenous peoples,...
