  • Leading Minnesota Democrats skip campaigning against policing question

    Nov 1, 2021

    WASHINGTON – Three of Minnesota's leading Democrats oppose the Minneapolis ballot question that could replace the city's Police Department with a new public safety agency, but they aren't campaigning against it.

Despite some gains, a stubborn achievement gap persists between white students and students of color. The issue factored into the board's 5-4 decision...

  • Oneida cyclists blaze their own trail

    Nov 1, 2021

    The two fastest Native cyclists are Oneida, and brother and sister. Shayna and Neilson Powless have been excelling as elite professional cyclists for more than a few years and continue to climb to their own pinnacles. Their multi-athletic journeys took them to being high level performers on the roads and trails. And perhaps, the best is yet to come. A third Oneida cyclist, Cole House, made similar noise starting nearly two decades ago. https://indiancountrytoday.com/news/oneida-cyclists-blaze-their-own-trail...
