It's not often you hear about a community project that really benefits people - but isn't scraping for cash.

A recent influx of state and local funding, plus monies from organizations like Hunger Solutions MN really put some gas in the tank of Community Action Duluth's efforts to get their Mobile Market up and running.

Now folks who don't live close to a grocery store or for whom home delivery is problematic can do their shopping at a "grocery store on wheels."

When the bodies of 215 children - some as young as three - were discovered in an unmarked, mass grave at the former Kamloops Indian Residential School it brought to light a part of history that many white people are unfamiliar with.

In the US as well as Canada, residential boarding schools for Native kids were instituted as a way to "kill the Indian and save the child" by preparing them to assimilate into white culture.  In reality, they were a thinly veiled effort to wipe out Native language, culture, family bonds, and "get the Indians out of the way."

Marigold

Hello potential loving home! My name is Marigold and I am a 11 pound, grey and white calico, Domestic Shorthair who is about 4 years old. I found myself at Animal Allies after my previous home could no longer care for me and I'm now looking for a new, loving home to call my own! I am a very sweet and loving girl who loves attention. I really enjoy playing with toys and being a social butterfly. I did great with the dogs that I used to live with!

Journalist Georgia Fort was maced and shot with a rubber bullet last week.

And she counts herself lucky she escaped with only a bruise.

Minnesota car dealerships are stuck right in the middle.

On the one hand, they're in favor of the new emissions standards being proposed by the MPCA's Clean Cars Minnesota rule.

Hundreds of LGBTQIA2S+ youth took issue with the Minnesota State Legislature last week, flooding their email inboxes with demands for accountability regarding House File 1657.

It's the first legislation in the nation to threaten criminal consequences for transgender students using bathrooms or taking part in school activities.
