3 charged, 1 more arrested in killing of Minnetonka High School student

The three men who surrounded a car Sunday morning where a teenage girl was gunned down weren't strangers to the law: One was out of prison in August on intensive supervised release until 2018, another was released from jail earlier this year pending trial in a prostitution case and the third has a warrant out for his arrest for allegedly violating an order for protection. Despite conditions placed on them and threats that any wrongdoing could send them back behind bars, two of them allegedly shot at 16-year-old Samantha Burnette in a St. Paul...

A New School Choice Option for Native Americans

If you want an example of the federal government’s myriad failures, the Navajo Nation is a good place to start. Despite billions of dollars of Washington spending, and clumsy micromanagement by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Bureau of Indian Education, and the HHS, more than 40 percent of the region’s residents live below the poverty line and the median household income is just $20,005. The sprawling, semi-autonomous community covers 27,000 square miles of Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah, but is shared by only 170,000 people. Not only...

Unhappy Target customers send strong message on pill bottles

Longtime customers of Target's pharmacies are finding a change in pill bottle design hard to swallow. After CVS began operating Target's drugstores earlier this year, distraught customers have been asking — in some cases begging — the drugstore chain to bring back the retailer's red prescription bottles, which came with color-coded rings, labeling on the top and prescription information that was easier to read. Some customers also took more drastic steps. http://www.startribune.com/unhappy-target-customers-send-strong-me...

Fleeting mentions of education in first debate

EDUCATION ISSUES AN AFTERTHOUGHT IN DEBATE: The first showdown between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump featured only fleeting references to education policy. — Clinton talked most about education, bringing up the issue on several occasions, though only briefly.

And she also pledged to help “people refinance their debt from college at a lower rate.” — Clinton suggested that Trump...

As Clinton cheers, Donald Trump digs in after debate

RALEIGH, N.C. — A defensive Donald Trump gave Hillary Clinton plenty of fresh material for the next phase of her presidential campaign on Tuesday, choosing to publicly reopen and relitigate some her most damaging attacks. The day after his first general election debate, Trump blamed the moderator and a bad microphone and said he was holding back to avoid embarrassing Clinton. Next time, he threatened, he might get more personal and make a bigger political issue of former President Bill Clinton's marital infidelities. Things are already...

WASHINGTON – In a rare rebuke, Democratic Sens.
