    Jan 29, 2024

  • Bill would eliminate minimum parking requirements across Minnesota

    Jan 29, 2024

    Rules governing how much parking that cities require for businesses and multifamily dwellings such as apartment buildings are capricious and arbitrary, says Sen. Omar Fateh, DFL-Minneapolis. He point to rules in Carver, Minn., that require a minimum of two parking stalls for each lane in a bowling alley, while in Anoka the requirement is seven. "Are bowlers driving 3½ times as much in Anoka than in Carver?" Fateh asked rhetorically during a news conference last week to unveil the People...

  • Public defender pay raise shakes up staffing in Minnesota county attorney offices

    Jan 29, 2024

    For the first time in decades, Minnesota's public defenders are now being paid as much as prosecutors and it's resulting in droves of county attorneys pivoting to public defense. The Minnesota Legislature over the summer approved a dramatic pay increase for public defenders. Since then, two elected county attorneys have joined public defender offices and 21 assistant county attorneys followed suit, said Robert Small, director of the Minnesota County Attorneys Association. Recruitment and retention challenges because of pay and dwindling...

But recent intelligence has shown the extent to which Hamas has been able to build many of its rockets and...

  • Carroll promises to do 'something good' with a fortune won from Trump

    Jan 29, 2024

    NEW YORK — As soon as E. Jean Carroll heard the verdict Friday — $83.3 million in defamation damages against Donald Trump — a world of possibility opened before her: How to use the money? The amount vastly eclipsed the $5 million awarded to her by a jury last spring in a different trial against Trump. It could take years before she sees the money, as Trump has said he will appeal, but she is already considering how she might use the money once she obtains it. "I'm not going to waste a cent of this," she said. "We're going to do something...
