Two protesters were handed citations at the time for harvesting wild rice without a permit, and two others for setting gillnets. Late last month Crow Wing County Attorney Donald Ryan decided to officially charge all four protesters....

  • Feds give states years to meet new ID standards

    Jan 11, 2016

    ST. PAUL -- Americans may board commercial airlines for at least two more years with state identification cards that do not meet new federal guidelines, but it was not clear after Friday's announcement if a rush to change Minnesota law will continue. The federal Department of Homeland Security announced it will not require Real ID-compliant cards until Jan. 22, 2018.

    Jan 11, 2016

    With chronic pain in his neck and back and a brain injury from his days in the service, it wasn’t a surprise that Air Force veteran Ben Kraus had a huge file at the Minneapolis Veterans Affairs offices: more than a thousand pages of confidential and sensitive information dealing with medical issues, vocational rehab and disability compensation. What was a surprise is what happened when Kraus requested copies of his file last year. The VA sent them to someone else. The VA had used an outdated address. Kraus never found out who received his f...

  • Panama Canal expansion could widen markets for Minnesota farmers

    Jan 11, 2016

    Minnesota soybean farmer Joel Schreurs was in Panama last month, taking separate tours of the past and the future. The past is the Panama Canal, vintage 1914, which has routed Minnesota-grown soybeans, corn and other products to China and other Asian markets for decades. The future is the Panama Canal expansion, now nearing completion, which will allow larger, longer and deeper oceangoing vessels to transit beginning in May. “It’s an amazing feat what they’re building,” said Schreurs. The new locks are so massive, he said, that the oversiz...
