Facebook Twitter

01/18/2017 - 12:30 PM

On Tuesday Jan. 17, the Central Minnesota Violent Offender Task Force carried out a search warrant in the south side neighborhood after receiving tips that controlled substances were being sold from a home at 1202 6th Ave. S. in St Cloud.

Task Force Commander Steve Soyka says they located methamphetamine, heroin and over 1,000 pills that are suspected to contain ecstasy. The pills have an estimated street value of $25,000. Officers located two stolen motor scooters along with a stolen motorcycle. 

Dylan Michael Kelley, 25, of St. Cloud, is a suspect in custody. He is facing charges of 2nd degree possession, 2nd degree possession with intent to distribute, and 3 counts of possession of stolen property. The charges also have a chance to be intensified because Kelley's home is close to the Boys and Girls Club. 

The Central Minnesota Violent Offenders Task Force received help from the St. Cloud Police Department Community Outpost. The task force is made up of officers from St. Cloud, Little Falls and Sauk Rapids, and deputies from Stearns, Benton, Sherburne, Morrison and Todd County Sheriff Offices.

Facebook Twitter

01/17/2017 - 2:30 AM

An air quality advisory has been issued by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. The advisory is taking place until midnight Tuesday for 7 counties in the Twin Cities area. 

Meteorology Prof. Bob Weisman, of St. Cloud State University, says the increase of dirt particles in the air has caused the air quality index, AQI, to rise into the upper moderate range. This increase is unhealthy for people with sensitive breathing, the elderly, and children. 

With the return of commute- people driving back and forth to work- after the long weekend and low clouds, levels of pollution will continue to increase the AQI to over 100. This could increase health risks to those mentioned.

01/17/2017 - 2:00 AM

Minn. Gov. Mark Dayton is pushing republicans to pass immediate health care insurance relief that would cut health care premiums up to 25 percent for nearly 125,000 people.

Dayton's Office says if the proposal passes, the relief could come as soon as this month. Without this proposal, some Minnesotans would be without proper health care until January of 2018.

The plan Dayton is proposing would create zero additional spending.

If it does not pass, the governor adds the republican's plan will cost taxpayers an additional $20 million, and will leave many without health insurance until 2018.

St. Cloud School District Gets Funding For High-Speed Internet

Facebook Twitter

01/12/2017 - 1:30 AM

The St. Cloud School District will get more than $40,000 for better access to high-speed internet.

The governor’s office says 12 school districts across Minnesota received grant money to make sure students have better internet connections on the bus and at home. Grants were announced by Lt. Gov. Tina Smith and the Department of Education.

Money can be used to equip buses with wireless hotspots so students can do homework on their way to and from school. Schools may also purchase hotspots, data cards and other mobile broadband devices for students to check out and use at home.

Thirty-three districts applied for this grant, but only twelve were awarded due to limited funding. The legislation capped grant money at $50,000 per district. St. Cloud received $40,546.

Since districts still need funding, the ongoing need for investment in rural high-speed internet remains.
