  • At Farmfest, Minnesota congressional candidates pledge support for rural economies

    Aug 3, 2022

    DFL U.S. Rep. Angie Craig and Republican challenger Tyler Kistner sat at the center of a long table of congressional candidates at Farmfest on Tuesday - and the prominent staging didn't disappoint.

The two-term Second District congresswoman and the former Marine pushed their competing agricultural priorities during a roughly hourlong panel at the annual industry gathering in southwestern Minnesota's Redwood County. Craig highlighted her bill to...

  • Becker schools propose policy banning 'divisive' concepts

    Aug 3, 2022

    BECKER - A vote on a proposed policy that would ban so-called "divisive" concepts from the Becker school district was delayed Monday after the district received threats of legal action concerning the policy.

But the policy goes on to dictate that, if...

  • Trump faces questions about his net worth in interview he tried to avoid

    Aug 3, 2022

    For decades, Donald Trump has boasted with impunity about a subject close to his heart and ego: his net worth. "I look better if I'm worth $10 billion than if I'm worth $4 billion," he once said when disputing his ranking on the Forbes billionaires list. In a court case, he acknowledged that when it came to describing the value of his brand, "I'm as accurate as I think I can be." And when he described his self-aggrandizing style in his book, "The Art of the Deal," he chose a phrase that has foll...

  • At least 2,500 fish killed in southeastern Minnesota's Rush Creek

    Aug 3, 2022

    John Weaver walked down the shore of Rush Creek to one of his more reliable southeastern Minnesota fishing holes, hoping to land some brown trout. Instead he saw a white belly of a dead fish floating on the water. Then another, and another. "I fish 100 days a year and I have almost never seen a dead trout on the water," Weaver said. "It happens very, very rarely. I have never seen two floating in the same pool." It was the evening of July 25. He walked up and down the shoreline and saw that...

    Aug 3, 2022

Pete Stavros, co-head of Americas Private...

  • UN says Yemen's warring sides agree to renew existing truce

    Aug 3, 2022

    SANAA, Yemen - The United Nations said Yemen's warring parties agreed Tuesday to renew an existing truce for two more months after concerted international efforts. The already 4-month-old cease-fire has been the longest nationwide ease in fighting since the war began in the Arab world's poorest country nearly eight years ago.

Russia said it was responding to comments by Vadym Skibitsky, Ukraine's deputy head of military intelligence, about the way Kyiv had used U.S.-made and supplied High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) launchers based on what he called excellent satellite imagery and...

  • The Power of Moccasins on the Road to Healing & Reconciliation

    Aug 3, 2022

    In the 1990s, the National Museum of the American Indian in New York City had an exhibition called All Roads Are Good that included more than 100 pairs of moccasins placed in a circle with the drum in the center. Instead of simply placing the moccasins on the floor, they were strategically arranged with the heels elevated and the toes on the floor to allow the imagination to think of dancing. Some of the moccasins were beautifully beaded with images that tied them to their unique region or...
