  • Early tensions emerge as Minnesota lawmakers convene 2024 legislative session

    Feb 13, 2024

    Minnesota lawmakers embraced after months apart, posed for selfies on the first day of session and promised a quieter year than 2023, when Democrats in control passed sweeping policy changes and the largest two-year budget in state history. But ceremony quickly turned into debate over policy issues, a preview of partisan conflicts ahead in a short, election-year legislative session. "Summer vacation is over, we're back to work," DFL Speaker Melissa Hortman said on the House floor, moments after...

  • Minneapolis business owner tries to ban Frey over mayor's Israel-Hamas veto

    Feb 13, 2024

    A prominent Minneapolis business owner has told Mayor Jacob Frey he's banned from his premises because Frey vetoed a contentious City Council resolution over the Israel-Hamas war - but Frey says the gesture is an example of a new wave of antisemitism. Basim Sabri, a prominent - and controversial - local real estate magnate, emailed Frey days after the mayor vetoed the resolution, which called for a cease-fire and an end to U.S. military aid to Israel. The letter informs Frey he's no longer...

  • Feds investigating Edina Public Schools for discrimination

    Feb 13, 2024

    The U.S. Department of Education is investigating Edina Public Schools over alleged discrimination, months after two Muslim students were suspended for using a pro-Palestinian slogan while protesting the Israeli war in Gaza. The two students - Somali American girls who participated in a student walkout in support of Palestinians in October - each received a three-day suspension for chanting, "From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free." Attorney Bruce Nestor announced Nov. 27 that he had...

  • Two suburban women involved in 2017 murder released early under revised Minnesota law

    Feb 13, 2024

    Two women who were convicted in the 2017 killing of a 19-year-old man during a botched robbery were released from prison last week - the first people to be resentenced under a new law that differentiates criminal sentences for major participants and those who played a lesser role in a murder. In April 2018, a Hennepin County judge sentenced Briana Martinson of Prior Lake and Megan Cater of Lakeville each to 13½ years in prison for their part in the robbery-turned-murder of Corey Elder....

  • Legionnaires outbreak traced to Minnesota city's water supply

    Feb 13, 2024

    A cluster of 14 cases of Legionnaires' disease in Grand Rapids, Minn., has been traced to the municipal water supply, a state health investigation has found. City authorities said Monday that they plan to flush and disinfect the water system to reduce risks of the disease, which is caused by inhalation of water droplets containing the Legionella bacteria. The disease is fatal in as many as 1 in 10 cases. While no one has died in this outbreak, 11 people were hospitalized. Individuals were infected in multiple homes and buildings in a small...

  • Plea deal rejected for Minneapolis man who sent heavy items off downtown balcony onto cars

    Feb 13, 2024

    A judge Monday rejected a plea agreement struck by the Hennepin County Attorney's Office calling for probation and no prison time for a man who dropped dumbbells, furniture and other items from his ninth-floor balcony onto vehicles passing by his downtown Minneapolis apartment building, causing thousands of dollars in damage. Michael B. Judy, 30, had agreed in December to plead guilty in District Court to felony first-degree property damage for aiming an array of heavy objects at vehicles...

  • To house Nenookaasi residents, Minneapolis awards $1 million contract to for-profit group

    Feb 13, 2024

    Faced with the challenge of providing housing and services to the residents of south Minneapolis' large Camp Nenookaasi homeless encampment, the city of Minneapolis tried a new strategy: bypassing its traditional partnership with Hennepin County and instead awarding a nearly $1 million contract to a relatively unknown, for-profit group called Helix Health and Housing Services. There was no competitive bidding process for the contract. Rather, the city based its decision on its experience working...

  • Israeli forces rescue 2 hostages in dramatic Gaza raid that killed at least 67 Palestinians

    Feb 13, 2024

    AFAH, Gaza Strip — Israeli forces rescued two hostages early Monday, storming a heavily guarded apartment in a densely packed town in the Gaza Strip as airstrikes carried out to cover the raid killed more than 60 Palestinians, including women and children. The rescue in Rafah briefly lifted the spirits of Israelis shaken by the plight of the dozens of hostages held by Hamas. The nation is still reeling from the militant group's cross-border raid last year that started the war. The overnight bombardment brought devastation in Rafah, which is...

  • How Trump urging Russia to invade 'delinquent' NATO members distorts how the alliance works

    Feb 13, 2024

    WARSAW, Poland — Donald Trump, the front-runner for the Republican Party's nomination this year, says he once warned that he would allow Russia to do whatever it wants to NATO member nations that are ''delinquent'' in devoting 2% of their gross domestic product to defense. Trump's comment on Saturday represented the latest instance in which the former president seemed to side with an authoritarian state over America's democratic allies. It also adds to evidence that the 77-year-old either does not understand how NATO works or is distorting...

  • Speaker Johnson rejects Israel, Ukraine aid package ahead of Senate vote

    Feb 13, 2024

    House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) preemptively rejected the Senate's $95 billion national security package to aid Israel, Ukraine and other U.S. allies, saying in a statement that the package's failure to address U.S. border security makes it a nonstarter in the House. "In the absence of having received any single border policy change from the Senate, the House will have to continue to work its own will on these important matters," Johnson said in a statement. "America deserves better than the...

  • Biden and Jordanian king warn about planned Israeli invasion of Rafah

    Feb 13, 2024

    President Biden and Jordan's King Abdullah II, speaking jointly at the White House on Monday, warned against an indiscriminate Israeli invasion of Rafah in southern Gaza, resulting in an event that had not occurred since the Israel-Hamas war began - the president standing alongside an Arab leader to voice reservations about the Israeli onslaught in the Palestinian enclave. "The major military operation in Rafah should not proceed without a credible plan to ensure the safety and support of more...

  • RFK Jr. Super Bowl ad highlights the paradox that is his campaign

    Feb 13, 2024

    Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s third-party presidential campaign has polled historically well as an abstraction. And a super PAC supporting him spent millions of dollars Sunday on a Super Bowl ad seeking to capitalize on that abstraction. The ad from the super PAC may have been many Americans' introduction to Kennedy's 2024 campaign. And to the extent the ad actually featured content, it was: Did you know he's a Kennedy? The ad borrowed heavily from John F. Kennedy's 1960 campaign advertising,...
