The Minnesota State Patrol is under some scrutiny after a chase ended with a vehicle crashing into a playground and seriously injuring three siblings.
The pursuit apparently started on Interstate 94 in the metro area, and tragically ended when the driver of the pursued SUV exited the freeway, entered a neighborhood and ran through some tennis courts and a swing set outside Jenny Lind Elementary School.

SNAP’s work requirements explained

By Collin Peterson
U.S. Congressman
D-Minnesota
Work requirements have been part of SNAP, formerly known as food stamps, since 1996. People between 16 and 59 have to work. The problem is that the requirements we have for able-bodied adults don’t work the way they should.
They don’t work because they’re too rigid and don’t offer the states any flexibility, so states ask instead to waive the requirements altogether, which sabotages the original intent of reform. For 2018, 36 states requested and received waivers that exempt folks from work requirements.

Class was in session for a packed house at Monday’s city of Glencoe Personnel and Legislative Committee meeting. Pam Whitmore, a representative from the League of Minnesota Cities, presented advice in effective communication as a result of, at the risk of sounding repetitive, dysfunctional City Council meetings.
