  • Excise Tax: The Forgotten Obamacare Penalty

    Jul 3, 2015

    ST. PAUL, Minn.—After last week’s Supreme Court King v. Burwell ruling, many Obamacare supporters might think the fight has been won, while many opponents to the flawed government health care system may be downcast or looking for the next best strategy to win repeal. But Twila Brase, president and co-founder of Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF, www.cchfreedom.org), a Minnesota-based national organization dedicated to preserving patient-centered health care and protecting patient and privacy rights, says repeal is still possible,...

  • Full moon phase means the walleyes are biting at night

    Jul 3, 2015

    Bemidji is one of the premier fishing destinations for anglers from all over the country. The Fourth of July weekend may be the busiest weekend of the summer on the lakes, with anglers having to share the water with pleasure boaters of all kinds. The Fourth of July lands on a Saturday this year, so this entire week has been busy on the lakes, with many visitors combining a few days of vacation with the long weekend. With high temperatures pushing 80 degrees this week, surface water temperatures in most lakes are now in the low 70s, so summer...

  • Voucher program helps push foster youth to higher education goals

    Jul 3, 2015

    BEMIDJI -- When adolescents aged out of the Minnesota foster care system before 2003, higher education was seldom an option. The Minnesota Department of Human Services has since worked to grow post-secondary opportunities for former foster youth. Each year, the Education and Training Voucher program awards roughly 200 such students an average of $3,000 apiece -- money that can go toward nearly any expense associated with college life. “It’s our responsibility to provide these kids an avenue toward higher education,” said Jim Koppel, the...

    LA CROSSE, Wis. – Winding up two of the most momentous weeks of his presidency, which saw court victories on gay marriage and his health care law, a legislative win on a major trade pact and an emotional eulogy for the Rev.

  • A Minnesota invention, the pontoon boat is redefining modern boating

    Jul 3, 2015

    It’s hard to say when it happened, but happen it did. Pontoon boats became cool. Way cool. Once puttering platforms for the geriatric generation, today’s upscale boats can cost as much as a sports car and go nearly as fast. Three-tube aluminum boats, each mounted with a 300-horsepower outboard engine, have been clocked at more than 100 miles per hour. http://www.startribune.com/a-minnesota-invention-the-pontoon-boat-is-redefining-modern-boating/311478851/...

  • Road work won't be taking a holiday for July 4th weekend

    Jul 3, 2015

    There’s good news for travelers who plan on using Hwy. 10 through St. Cloud and Sauk Rapids over the Independence Day weekend as new permanent lanes on Hwys. 10 and 15 in the area will be open to motorists. That should help ease the congestion for legions of people heading northwest out of the Twin Cities and provide a decent alternate route for motorists looking to avoid the crush that develops on Interstate 94. Unfortunately, road construction projects in the metro area and other parts of the state won’t be on holiday, and they could...

  • US unemployment falls to 7-year low, but paychecks remain flat, and many job-seekers give up

    Jul 3, 2015

    WASHINGTON — U.S. unemployment fell to a seven-year low of 5.3 percent and employers hired at a solid pace in June, but other gauges of the job market drew a bleaker picture: A wave of people stopped looking for work, and paychecks failed to budge. The figures released Thursday capture the persistently uneven nature of the recovery from the Great Recession. The job market "remains consistent with a two-steps-forward, one-step-back expansion the U.S. economy finds itself in," said Scott Andersen, chief economist at Bank of the West....
