ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - A Minnesota woman says her military veteran husband was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder when he walked into the Mississippi River never to be seen alive again.

 
Witnesses told police that 49-year-old Shannon Shaw of Waite Park started to swim across the massive waterway at St. Cloud on Monday afternoon, near the railroad bridge area north of 5th Avenue. They lost sight of him when he was about halfway across.
 
Authorities found Shaw's body Tuesday night after using professional sonar technology.
 
The Star Tribune reports that Kristi Shaw said her husband hadn't been able to find help for the PTSD that he had struggled with since he served in the U.S. Army's military police in Germany in the 1990s.
 
Shaw had been discharged from the emergency room at St. Cloud Hospital just before he entered the river. The hospital hasn't disclosed what treatment he received.

Facebook Twitter

05/10/2018 - 10:33 AM

The Stearns County Veterans Protocol Team is expanding to recruit new mentors for other veterans.

Veterans Service Officer Cory Vaske says the program is looking for veterans to help those who may have been charged in court with a mental health or substance related offense. The program provides an alternative court process to veterans whose military experiences may have contributed to their legal problems.

The purpose for mentors is to give a positive social connection with fellow veterans and help make great changes. No legal experience is needed, just a drive to help a fellow veteran. Mentors are expected to make weekly contact with assigned veterans through a phone call or an in-person meeting. 

To become a mentor you can contact Cory Vaske at (320)-656-6176 or email at vetbenefits@co.stearns.mn.us . Initial mentor training is scheduled for Wednesday, May 16 through Independent Lifestyles in Sauk Rapids.

The Wait Is Over! Building 51 Has Been Renamed To Ruby Cora Webster Hall

Facebook Twitter

05/03/2018 - 10:20 AM

A building on St. Cloud State University's campus will get a new name after a months long, rigorous process.

University Communications spokeswoman Anna Kurth says the 51 Building will change to Ruby Cora Webster Hall, after the 1909 graduate from St. Cloud Normal School. Webster was a teacher and was a significant individual in the region's history.

The name change process started in 2017 when Ethnic Studies professor Christopher Lehman proposed the renaming. Lehman discussed with Untold Stories of Central Minnesota Producer Jeff Carmack the importance of Webster and what the change would mean. It then came up to the administration to develop a non-donor related naming policy for the campus.

Minnesota State Chancellor Devinder Malhotra approved the renaming, and it will be put in place for the school's sesquicentennial.

At one time in the school's recent history, Building 51 was known as the Business Building, before that program moved to Centennial Hall and became the Herberger School of Business.
