Bassett's own goal in stoppage time lifts Japan to 2-1 win over England in World Cup semifinal

EDMONTON, Alberta — England defender Laura Bassett was inconsolable as she lay face down on the field, sobbing. Japanese players gathered at the other end of the field in celebration — and relief — in realizing how close they came to squandering a chance to defend their Women's World Cup title. After Japan was outplayed for much of the second half, a turn of Bassett's foot followed by a fortunate bounce off the crossbar led to an own goal...

SPEAKER DAUDT: GOV. DAYTON'S PAY RAISES OUT OF TOUCH

ST. PAUL, MN—Governor Dayton took action Wednesday to increase the pay of political appointees, raising the pay of 31 agency heads between $1,989 and $42,500 each.

Gov. Mark Dayton grants big raises to his commissioners; Republicans cry foul

Gov. Mark Dayton gave big raises to his cabinet Wednesday, prompting a swift attack from Republicans as he boosted the salaries of some agency commissioners overnight by 30 percent or more.

Recent contract agreements with the state’s two largest public employee unions resulted in 2.5 percent increases this year and...
