At the end of the last MN Legislative session Governor Mark Dayton did something no governor has done before.  Many before him have vetoed bills, line-item vetoed elements of omnibus bills....but none have vetoed the budget of the Legislature in general.

Each Friday morning Marshall Helmberger tells us some of the stories his newspaper, the Timberjay, has been covering.  The lead story this week is about a man from Nett Lake who found his grandfather's manuscript and published it.  It's called "Savage Ancestors" and was probably written in the 1930s.  Marshall also tells us about the Governor Mark Dayton's trip to Ely to talk water quality.

In 2009, food writer Emma Christensen began brewing beer at home. She quickly grew to love each stage of the hours-long process, much of which is spent tending to a crock of boiling wort, or unfermented beer, and adding hops every few minutes. Over the course of making more than a hundred batches, she has become skilled at the art of turning barley, water, hops and yeast into beer.

Dylann Roof, on federal death row for gunning down nine people two years ago at a historically black church in Charleston, S.C., wants his legal team dismissed because of the lawyers' ethnicity as he seeks to have his conviction and death sentence overturned.

"My two currently appointed attorneys, Alexandra Yates and Sapna Mirchandani, are Jewish and Indian respectively," Roof wrote in a letter filed Monday with the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. "It is therefore quite literally impossible that they and I could have the same interests relating to my case."

It does not take a hurricane to put nursing home residents at risk when disaster strikes.

Around the country, facilities have been caught unprepared for far more mundane emergencies than the hurricanes that struck Florida and Houston, according to an examination of federal inspection records.
