U.S. education secretary promises hope and help in visit with Twin Cities youths

General Mills widens flour recall into 2016 production at Kansas City plant

General Mills is expanding its national flour recall for the second time after more people were sickened due to E. coli in its products. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says 46 people have become ill from E. coli contamination of its flour, with one person in Indiana having developed a type of kidney failure. The number of cases in Minnesota has risen from three to five — the most of any of the 21 states with cases. General Mills in May recalled batches of its Gold Medal, Wondra and Signature Kitchens flour made during three...

Clinton looks to move Democrats away from 'Education Wars'

In an event that could be called a love fest, Democratic presumptive presidential nominee Hillary Clinton laid out her education priorities in a rollicking speech at the annual assembly of the National Education Association (NEA), the nation's largest teachers union. Clinton profusely thanked teachers for doing the difficult job of educating the nation's children, and the 7,500 educators in attendance responded with cascading chants of "Hillary, Hillary." There was, however, one moment of discord. "When schools get it right, whether they are...

Kaine, as governor, left a mark on higher education in Virginia

Timothy M. Kaine backed a major construction initiative for public colleges during his four years as Virginia governor and oversaw increases for higher education funding until economic recession squeezed state spending midway through his term. The Democrat, governor from 2006 to 2010, was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2012. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton announced Friday that Kaine is her choice for vice-presidential running mate, bringing fresh scrutiny to his lengthy record in public office. https://www....

After turmoil, Sanders, Mrs. Obama, Warren thrill convention

PHILADELPHIA — Seeking to bridge deep Democratic divides, Bernie Sanders robustly embraced his former rival Hillary Clinton Monday night as a champion for the same economic causes that enlivened his supporters, signaling it was time for them, too, to rally behind her in the campaign against Republican Donald Trump. "Any objective observer will conclude that — based on her ideas and her leadership — Hillary Clinton must become the next president of the United States," he declared in a headlining address on the opening night of the...

Franken takes on Trump at DNC

PHILADELPHIA -- U.S. Sen. Al Franken leaned on his comedy roots in a short speech to the Democratic National Convention on Monday night made up largely of ridicule for Republican candidate Donald Trump. “I’m Al Franken – Minnesotan, senator and world renowned expert on right-wing megalomaniacs,” Franken said in a prime time speech from the stage of the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. “Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly and now Donald Trump.” Franken, of course, was a “Saturday Night Live” writer and performer for years before...

Tribal leaders call on next president to include Native voices in policy

PHILADELPHIA – Edward Manuel ticks off the issues – water shortages, federal approval of mining projects, allocation of scarce resources – all decisions made with what he thinks is insufficient input from the nation’s tribes. That’s why Manuel, the chairman of the Tohono O’odham Nation, joined scores of tribal leaders who called on the next president to have a strong Native American presence in political discussions, something they said has been happening under the Obama administration. “Our voice, tribal voice,” was the...

Trump, GOP Platform Bad News for Tribal Nations

It was a long, bitter week at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland―an event that was supposed to be the coronation of Donald J. Trump as the party’s nominee and a celebration of unity after a year-long, contentious primary season in which 17 candidates had winnowed to one. Instead, the atmosphere inside Quicken Loans Arena was marked by open, internecine warfare within the party, charges of plagiarism, disorganization and nonsensical programming headlined by a colorful array of nightly speakers plucked from reality shows and...

 The Supreme Court Is the Most Important Issue in the 2016 Election

 Healthcare, gay marriage, voting rights, affirmative action, reproductive rights, labor rights, immigration, climate change. These are some of the crucial issues that have come before the Supreme Court in recent years or will be heard this year. A cliché we hear every presidential cycle is that the Court should be one of the most important issues in the election, but this year, following the death of Antonin Scalia, it’s never been truer. The next president will almost certainly appoint one or more justices, especially if Republicans...

As convention begins, Democrats try to clean up a mess

Before it was even gaveled in on Monday, the Democratic National Convention started on the wrong note, with a damaging leak of e-mails that cast the party in the worst possible light and threw further doubts on the veracity of the nominee it is supposed to showcase this week. Democrats were right to remove Debbie Wasserman Schultz from her role in the convention, and her resignation as DNC chairwoman is a needed first step. But that can’t be the only repair work. The DNC’s mishandling of the primary has been flawed from the beginning,...
