    Apr 2, 2018

    PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — President Donald Trump on Sunday declared “NO MORE” to a deal to help “Dreamer” immigrants and threatened to pull out of a free trade agreement with Mexico unless it does more to stop people from crossing into the U.S. He claimed they’re coming to take advantage of protections granted certain immigrants. “NO MORE DACA DEAL!” Trump tweeted one hour after he began the day by wishing his followers a “HAPPY EASTER!” https://www.twincities.com/2018/04/01/trump-ridiculous-laws-make-border-patrol-more-danger...

  • Apple and iPad are underdogs in a fight with Google for classroom dominance

    Apr 2, 2018

    Apple, maker of iPads and other shiny tech gadgets, last week chose an unusual venue for its latest press event — an inner-city Chicago magnet high school called Lane Tech College Prep.

  • New St. Paul mental health officers look at policing differently to potentially save lives

    Apr 2, 2018

    “There’s a man with a gun trying to hurt me!” a terrified St. Paul man told a 911 operator. Officers rushed to his residence, but they found no sign of a gunman.

  • Minnesota Legislature on break, but here's what's ahead

    Apr 2, 2018

    The Minnesota Legislature has left the building. Lawmakers started their traditional Easter-Passover break on Good Friday, set to return on April 9 with a lot left to do. Most of the record 8,207 bills they introduced last year and this year never will even see a committee hearing (last year’s bills remain available for action this year). But in the time left before the May 21 mandatory adjournment date, lawmakers will be busy. https://www.twincities.com/2018/03/31/mn-legislature-on-easter-passover-break-before-home-stretch/...

  • Trump's EPA expected to roll back auto gas mileage standards

    Apr 2, 2018

    DETROIT — The Trump administration is expected to announce that it will roll back automobile gas mileage and pollution standards that were a pillar in the Obama administration’s plans to combat climate change. It’s not clear whether the announcement will include a specific number, but current regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency require the fleet of new vehicles to get 36 miles per gallon in real-world driving by 2025. That’s about 10 mpg over the existing standard. https://www.twincities.com/2018/03/30/trump...

    Apr 2, 2018

    CLEARWATER COUNTY—Paul Stolen waded through deep snow down a steep valley toward LaSalle Creek, about four miles north of Lake Itasca, where the Mississippi River begins, and contemplated what would happen if an oil pipeline ruptured in this spot. "You're not going to be able to clean up the oil, if it reaches the bottom of the valley," the retired Minnesota Department of Natural Resources biologist said recently as he walked the tract. You're "simply not going to do that, because of the nature of the wetland soils and the uniqueness of this a...

  • April Weed of the Month: Why Scout for Herbicide Resistant Weeds?

    Shane Blair, Minnesota Department of Agriculture|Apr 2, 2018

    A growing problem that is costing farmers more money each year is herbicide resistant weeds. The primary driver for resistant weeds comes from the repeated use of the same herbicide with the same mode of action year after year. What can be done? Scouting for herbicide resistant weeds throughout the growing season and even when harvest time comes around can be very beneficial. The earlier the detection, the more time there is allotted to eliminate the plant or patch by mowing, hand removal,...
