  • U.S. Supreme Court hears Minneapolis woman's fight for proceeds from the sale of her condo after it was seized for back taxes

    Apr 27, 2023

    The nation's highest court Wednesday grappled with the case of an elderly Minneapolis woman whose condo was seized and sold by Hennepin County for unpaid taxes - and whether she's entitled to any money from that sale. Minnesota is among a minority of states that allow the government to sell a property forfeited because of unpaid taxes and keep all the proceeds, even if they exceed what was owed. That's what happened to Geraldine Tyler in 2015 when she owed $15,000 in taxes, interest and fees on...

  • Minnesota farmer needs a truck with a cooler; Congress' farm bill could help

    Apr 27, 2023

    OGILVIE, MINN. - A daughter of a Kenyan farmer surveys her small field, still wet from late April rains. Jane Windsperger has yet to plant her vegetables for the season on her 3.8-acre farm, set among pines in rural Kanabec County, halfway between Duluth and Minneapolis. She starts ticking off her needs. A truck with a cooler. A hoop house. Maybe a fence to keep away the nibbling deer and woodchucks.

  • Flooded St. Croix River forces marinas to delay start of boating season

    Apr 27, 2023

    The high waters of the St. Croix River mean the spring boating season will likely be delayed, perhaps by up to a month, as marinas have been forced to hold off on launching the vessels in their care. Some marinas in Stillwater, Afton and Hudson, Wis., have had to build temporary berms to protect their offices, while others have had no choice but to let the river run through their property. It's not fun, marina managers said, but it's not unexpected at any of the longtime businesses that the...

  • House Republicans pass US debt bill, push Biden on spending

    Apr 27, 2023

    WASHINGTON - House Republicans narrowly passed sweeping legislation Wednesday that would raise the government's legal debt ceiling by $1.5 trillion in exchange for steep spending restrictions, a tactical victory for Speaker Kevin McCarthy as he challenges President Joe Biden to negotiate and prevent a catastrophic federal default this summer. Biden has threatened to veto the Republican package, which has almost no chance of passing the Democratic Senate anyway, and the president has so far...

The Vatican on...

  • Writer tells jury in lawsuit trial: 'Donald Trump raped me'

    Apr 27, 2023

    NEW YORK - At first, she thought helping Donald Trump shop for a women's lingerie gift at a luxury department store would simply be ''a funny New York thing.'' Even when, according to E. Jean Carroll, the then-businessman motioned her to a dressing room as they dared each other to try on a see-through bodysuit, she imagined something like a ''Saturday Night Live'' sketch she'd written. But soon, ''my whole reason for being alive in that moment was to get out of that room,'' Carroll testified...

    Apr 27, 2023

  • North Dakota Passes State ICWA Bill

    Apr 27, 2023

    As Indian Country waits for the U.S. Supreme Court to pass down a historic ruling on the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), North Dakota has passed its own ICWA protections. North Dakota House Bill 1536 passed the state legislature yesterday, April 25. The bill codifies ICWA into state law, meaning if the Supreme Court were to make changes to the federal law, it would not apply to North Dakota law unless the North Dakota Legislature chose to amend the law adopted in HB 1536 in a future legislative session. Congress passed ICWA in 1978 after a...
