  • Mail, garbage delays in store as omicron wave builds across Minnesota

    Jan 11, 2022

    As a crushing wave of omicron infections surges across Minnesota, mail carriers and garbage haulers say they're struggling to keep things going. Some mail won't go out on time, a union official said, and a handful of garbage routes will see delays, according to a private hauler. The delays are brought on by a record-setting surge of COVID-19 cases connected with the highly contagious omicron variant. "The letter carriers in the city are working so short-handed right now, it's nothing like...

  • 'We're not satisfied': Wilfs make sweeping changes to Vikings leadership

    Jan 11, 2022

    Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman had been with the team since 2006 and hired Mike Zimmer as coach in 2014. Both men had been in their positions longer than most of their NFL counterparts. But the Vikings have missed the playoffs in three of their past four seasons after finishing the 2021 season with an 8-9 record Sunday. Owners Zygi and Mark Wilf decided they'd seen enough. They fired Zimmer and Spielman on Monday morning, perhaps the most significant set of changes since the...

  • Vikings fire Mike Zimmer, Rick Spielman; search for replacements to start immediately

    Jan 11, 2022

    In a sweeping set of moves unlike any they've made since they bought the team in 2005, Vikings owners Mark and Zygi Wilf fired coach Mike Zimmer and General Manager Rick Spielman on Monday, a day after the conclusion of consecutive losing seasons that had exhausted the Wilfs' patience with both men. Spielman, who had been with the team since 2006, hired Zimmer to replace Leslie Frazier in 2014. Both had two years remaining on the contract extensions they signed in 2020, but after the team finished 8-9 and missed the playoffs for the second...

  • Twin Cities mayors, police chiefs, prosecutors join forces on rising crime

    Jan 11, 2022

    Mayors, police chiefs and prosecutors across the Twin Cities are vowing to band together to slow a surge in violent crime that is roiling the region, but exactly how to do that remains unclear. The group convened Monday to zero in on a recent rise in vehicle thefts and violent carjackings dozens of officials said requires better collaboration between cities and suburbs, as well as police and prosecutors. "We can't incarcerate our way out of this problem," said Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman, who proposed reconstituting an 1990s-era...

  • Minnesota hospitals brace for omicron wave even as COVID-19 declines in ICUs

    Jan 11, 2022

    COVID-19 hospitalizations requiring intensive care declined from 374 on Dec. 16 to 255 on Friday in Minnesota, easing pressure on hospitals as they respond to the omicron wave of the pandemic.

    Jan 11, 2022

  • Campaign helps town turn the tide against COVID

    Jan 11, 2022

    GUADALUPE – A mix of stigma, misinformation and bad accounting let COVID-19 run rampant through this small town in 2020. But the community stepped back from that brink by building partnerships and fostering trust to track cases and increase vaccinations. In spring 2020, every town in the country was trying to figure out how to best deal with the rise of what would become an indefinite global pandemic. By early summer, Guadalupe had become a hotspot – with an infection rate 4.6 times higher than that of surrounding Maricopa County, or 1,659 vs....

  • Omicron threatens to upend classrooms

    Jan 11, 2022

    The omicron variant is posing the biggest challenge for schools to date, threatening in-person learning and upending a year where classrooms have mostly remained open. Some major school districts shifted to remote learning just ahead of the winter holidays with plans to continue through the first few weeks of January, while others made last-minute decisions driven by surging COVID-19 infections and staff shortages. There is immense public pressure to keep schools open, a sentiment shared by politicians on both sides of the aisle from President...

Schools are desperate for nurses. Bus drivers are so hard to find that the Departments of Transportation and Education announced this week that states can waive a part of...
