  • Kids Count highlights highs and lows: Poverty rates down, but so are grad rates, for Beltrami County in annual report

    Nov 12, 2015

    BEMIDJI -- For Beltrami County children, poverty rates are down, but so are graduation rates. The annual Kids Count study conducted by Children’s Defense Fund-Minnesota was released this week and shows a county improving in some key areas related to child care and declining in others -- lagging behind state averages nearly across the board. Beltrami County’s child poverty rate dropped from 28 percent in last year’s study to 27.3 percent, with fewer children receiving SNAP (food stamps) and free- or reduced-price lunch at school....

  • Legislative secrecy attributes to D- grade for Minnesota in integrity study

    Nov 12, 2015

    ST. PAUL--On a grueling final day of the legislative session last May, Minnesota House Speaker Kurt Daudt breezed through the final language of a major budget bill, passing motions at the pace of an auctioneer as his colleagues cried in vain for a copy of the legislation. "Mr. Speaker, it's 93 pages long and nobody in this body has gotten a copy of it," said Democratic Rep. Melissa Hortman. "We have no idea what's in this bill." Seated under a gold-leafed statue depicting "Lady Minnesota" alongside pioneers and American Indian leaders, the...

  • Lawmakers say state not putting child safety first in abuse cases

    Nov 12, 2015

    ST. PAUL -- Minnesota legislators who crafted legislation earlier this year to make sure a child's safety is first priority in abuse cases say the state is not following through with that requirement. Rep. Ron Kresha, R-Little Falls, opened a Tuesday meeting of a legislative child abuse task force meeting chastising state and county officials working on the issue for not putting safety first. "When you walk in, that child has to be safe." "People seem to have forgotten safety," Sen. Kathy Sheran, D-Mankato, said. http://www....

  • Beloved hunting dog impaled on steel fence post is on the mend

    Nov 12, 2015

    BLAINE, Minn. – A 3-year-old German wirehaired pointer is recovering at BluePearl Veterinary Partners hospital after a steel fence post pierced his chest while he was retrieving a pheasant. The accident occurred during a hunting trip near Miller, S.D., after Tim Ramler shot a pheasant with his 12-gauge shotgun. Blitz, his hunting dog, went bolting toward the bird. But just 20 yards into his full-out sprint, the 60-pound dog spun around and fell in the grass. Blood covered his belly. Ramler didn’t know it at the time, but a steel fence post...

    Nov 12, 2015

    WASHINGTON -- Hundreds of visitors stood in still silence at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery on a cool, overcast day as three Chickasaw veterans stepped out to lay a wreath at the tomb.

  • Storm system brings winds, reports of tornadoes in Midwest after dumping snow on Rockies

    Nov 12, 2015

    DES MOINES, Iowa — A fast-moving storm system dropped both snow and rain over portions of the Midwest on Wednesday, packing strong winds that flipped semitrailers, damaged industrial park buildings and downed power lines in parts of Iowa and Nebraska. National Weather Service officials said the system, which began Tuesday around Utah and moved eastward into the country's midsection, dumped more than a foot of snow on the Rockies before creating conditions ripe for tornadoes. But they said the weather wasn't quite as warm as it could have...

  • Intimacy denied

    Nov 12, 2015

    Near sunset, Rachel Larson grabbed Nicholas Hamilton by the hand and pulled him down a steep embankment below a graffiti-covered bridge. With late-summer mosquitoes buzzing around them, the two giggled and caressed each other, their voices muffled by the rush of a nearby stream and the traffic above. “It’s our secret hideaway,” said Rachel, 21, who has Down syndrome, as she snuggled with Nicholas, 24, who has a developmental disability. “Here, no one can see us and we are free to do whatever we want.” http://www.st...

  • Mighty muskie of Lake Mille Lacs a world-class haul for angler Robert Hawkins

    Nov 12, 2015

    The first day Robert Hawkins fished on Lake Mille Lacs, the only fish he caught was a 57-inch muskie, landed on a fly rod — a possible world record. Hawkins, a Minnesota transplant who came from Montana, set out on Mille Lacs on Monday at daybreak, accompanied by two pals. About 10:30 that morning, after casting a custom-made foot-long fly into about 10 feet of water, he hooked his muskie, a monster estimated to weigh more than 50 pounds. http://www.startribune.com/possible-world-record-muskie-caught-on-mille-lacs/34623111...

  • Habitat for Humanity dramatically improves families' lives, study finds

    Nov 12, 2015

    The before-and-after picture is dramatic for people who move into a Habitat for Humanity home in Minnesota. Once they move into their new homes, Habitat families make more money and use fewer government social programs. Their kids do better in school. Families feel safer and spend more time together. All in all, 92 percent of Habitat homeowners say their lives are better since they moved into their homes. “We’re able to completely change a family’s life,” said Kristin Skaar, a spokeswoman for Habitat for Humanity of Minnesota....

  • Counterpoint: Why racism and 'whiteness' matter

    Nov 12, 2015

    The commentary “Racism in schools is overstated” (Nov. 8) reflects one decidedly dominant way of thinking in society. I’ve not been in the world of education nearly as long as Mitch Pearlstein, and I certainly express the vigor that many in my generation have. Therefore, with respect, I want to share the different viewpoint of a young, enthusiastic teacher who is embracing the journey of understanding my “whiteness.” I applaud Pearlstein for recognizing that he cannot dismiss the experience people of color have about racism or unfair...
