For Red Lake priest who helped turn around school, parish is 'a family'

The priest who runs the smallest and poorest Catholic parish and school in Minnesota got his wallet and Sunday collection swiped from his office last week.

She had read or been told about a Facebook post about the incident. "I heard your wallet was stolen," she said. She reached out and handed Rogers a fist...

These toxins often include dioxin, a long-lasting carcinogen that can enter fish, wildlife, farm animals and ultimately humans as it works its way up the food chain. ht...

Tiny Nebraska town says no to 1,100 jobs, citing way of life

NICKERSON, Neb. — Half-ton pickup trucks crowd the curb outside the One Horse Saloon, a neon Coors Light sign in the window and rib-eye steaks on the menu, but otherwise Nickerson, Nebraska, is nearly silent on a spring evening, with only rumbling freight trains interrupting bird songs. Regional economic development officials thought it was the perfect spot for a chicken processing plant that would liven up the 400-person town with 1,100 jobs, more than it had ever seen. When plans leaked out, though, there was no celebration, only furious...

Lawmakers debate Red Lake reservation spending

ST. PAUL -- Minnesota lawmakers do not agree on how much to spend on public works projects, but also do not agree on what projects should be funded. An example Monday was whether the state should fund a new social services building and school on the Red Lake American Indian Reservation. "What I see happening now is not only are we going to ask our taxpayers to build a school ... now we are going to be paying to put up a social services building on private land," Sen. Scott Newman, R-Hutchinson, said Monday when Senate Democrats released their...

Minnesota Senate bonding wish list: $1.5 billion; Bemidji-area projects included in funding

ST. PAUL -- House and Senate leaders are far apart about how much to spend on public works projects. Nearly $1 billion apart.

Senators back 'granny pods' for sick family

Senators pass body cam regulation with no future

Lack of REAL ID Won't Keep Us Grounded; Feds' No Fly Threat is Empty

ST. PAUL, Minn.—Proponents of REAL ID, a national federal identification card that patient advocates say could turn into a National Patient ID, are using threats of being grounded from flying to force the REAL ID concept on Americans.

Senate DFLers propose borrowing $1.5 billion for capital improvement projects

Senate Democrats on Monday proposed borrowing nearly $1.5 billion to pay for capital improvement projects across the state, setting up a clash with House Republicans who have yet to unveil their much smaller, $600- million bonding plan.

If approved, it would create an estimated 40,000 jobs, Senate DFLers said....

Clinton's 'off the reservation' remark angers Native Americans, forces Twitter response

Trump Offends People While Criticizing Clinton For Offensive Comment

On Monday morning, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump criticized Hillary Clinton for “demeaning” Native Americans with a comment she recently made about men who “get off the reservation.” Trump’s choice to highlight Clinton’s remark is notable, however, given incendiary language he’s used during his fraught dealings with Native tribes over the years. Clinton made the remark in question during a sit-down with CNN that ran last Friday. Asked about the personal attacks Trump has started deploying against her, she...
