Jeb Bush Speaks at Local University and Encourages Students To Be Open to Opposing Opinions

 ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has told a crowd at Saint John's University that he feels he can still play a role in politics even though he doesn't plan to run for a major political office again.

Bush said he's not a fan of President Donald Trump, but that he continues to pray for all leaders.

Bush said he wants politicians to be willing to criticize fellow party members. He also encouraged people to read news and opinions they don't agree with fully.

Bush spoke at the school Thursday saying he has been rebuilding his life since dropping out of the 2016 presidential race. He has been mentoring politicians and launched an education reform foundation called Excel in Ed.

09/22/2017 - 3:30 AM

 ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - St. Cloud could be the next city to raise the minimum age to buy tobacco products to 21, a move the mayor doesn't support.

The City Council is expected to set a date for a public hearing on the matter at its meeting Monday.

State law prohibits the sale of tobacco and tobacco-related products to anyone under the age of 18. Last May Edina adopted an ordinance that raises the age to 21.

St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis says he doesn't support the measure for a variety of reasons.  Kleis says it would only prevent people ages 18 to 21 from buying tobacco not, using it.  He also thinks it's a state issue, not a local one.

Federal Judge Dismisses Lawsuit By St. Cloud Video Company That Doesn't Want To Work With Gay Couple

09/21/2017 - 9:00 AM

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A federal judge has dismissed a legal challenge by the owners of a Minnesota video company who want to shoot weddings for heterosexual couples only.

Carl and Angel Larsen own Telescope Media Group and filed a lawsuit in December against the state's human rights commissioner and attorney general contesting a Minnesota law that bans businesses from denying wedding services to same-sex couples.

The St. Cloud couple's lawsuit was a pre-emptive effort to avoid penalties for turning away same-sex customers. The Star Tribune reports Chief District Judge John Tunheim rejected the Larsens' argument that the law was an effort to "stamp out expression opposing same-sex marriage."

The Alliance Defending Freedom, which represents the Larsens, says the couple plans to file an appeal.

The leak was eventually stopped and River Street was closed for about 30 minutes. Gorka received a citation from the accident.

Home Remodeled On Grand Lake Must Be Torn Down

Facebook Twitter

09/20/2017 - 9:00 AM

ROCKVILLE, Minn. (AP) - A judge in central Minnesota says a new lake home must be torn down after a neighbor complained about the size of the building.

According to court documents, Kathleen and Matt Mimbach began the project on their property on Grand Lake in Rockville in November 2015. Building permits filed with the city called it "a remodel with a new addition."

But neighbors Thomas and Holly Ruether contend it actually was a teardown and the building of a new, larger home. The Ruethers' attorney says his clients' property has decreased in value, and that the new, two-story home encroaches on both side yards.

WJON-AM reports Stearns County Judge Vicki Landwehr ruled last week that the new home must be torn down. An attorney for the Mimbachs says they likely will appeal.
