    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – For the first time in more than five years, thousands of people in the metro area have a chance to apply for Section 8 housing. That means you only have to pay for 30 to 40 percent of your rent, and the federal government will pay your landlord the other 70 percent. Applicants can choose their rental as long as the landlord agrees. There are 2,000 slots open online through Friday for people in Anoka, Washington, Dakota, Scott and Carver counties and in rural Hennepin and Ramsey counties.
  • Slender Man stabbing prosecutors: keep case in adult court

    WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) — Prosecutors say the case should move forward in adult court against two Wisconsin girls accused of stabbing a classmate to please the horror character Slender Man. In filings late Tuesday, the Waukesha County District Attorney’s Office asked the court to find probable cause that both girls committed attempted first-degree homicide. Under Wisconsin law, that charge automatically puts the case in adult court. But defense attorneys want the case moved to juvenile court. They say the charge should be attempted second-degree homicide, which normally would be a juvenile charge.

    Madonna’s show-closing number at the 35th Annual BRIT Awards, held Wednesday at the O2 Arena in London, marked her first BRITS performance in 20 years. It should have been a triumph for the “Living for Love” diva, but a scary onstage wardrobe malfunction ruined the moment and nearly led to disaster. After a processional through the crowd with Madonna dressed in a full-body shroud, the singer’s devil-horned dancers attempted to remove her cape as she stood precariously at the edge of the stage’s upper platform. It appears, from almost instantly posted YouTube and Vine videos of the live broadcast, that...

    Governor Scott Walker was in Green Bay Tuesday, where he answered several questions about the Right to Work bill. He said he’s always supported Right to Work legislation and if it’s on his desk, he’ll sign it. Governor Walker said Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald began talking about the legislation in December and said it wasn’t on the governor’s agenda then in an effort to focus on the budget. “Our budget’s been presented, historically as it will this year, it takes several months for the Legislative Fiscal Bureau to go through it and Joint Finance Committee so if there ever...

    Word has been circling for some time that Disney is mulling a reboot of the Indiana Jones series and wants Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt to take the whip. Deadline is now reporting that Steven Spielberg himself is interested in stepping behind the camera should all the pieces fall into place. It's remarkably early for this kind of news — Jeff Sneider of The Wrap points out that there's no contractual obligation or even script at this point — but any kind of reboot would certainly gain immediate prestige coming from Spielberg. The filmmaker directed all four of...

    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – Illinois’ new Republican governor called Wednesday for deep spending cuts to Medicaid, pensions and other programs to fix the state’s budget mess without raising taxes — a pitch met with quick opposition from Democrats who control the Legislature. Delivering his first budget address since winning office last fall, Gov. Bruce Rauner said his plan would end “the irresponsible and reckless practices of the past.” He said lawmakers must be willing to make politically unpopular decisions to close a more than $6 billion budget hole next year. “This is our last, best chance to get our house...

Beauchamp is accused of uploading more than 7,000 images of child pornography to his cloud account. These images allegedly show victims estimated to be between three and 18 months old. A criminal complaint was also released Wednesday that detailed the extremely explicit images investigators say they found on his computer and other devices.

She had initially been charged with aggravated arson, but the charge was reduced. Lopez was sentenced to four years in prison and ordered to pay $1,000 in restitution, according to the statement.

    MONESSEN, Pa. (AP) - Parents in a Pennsylvania school district are turning 50 shades of red over word search puzzles given to middle school students based on an erotic novel and movie. The students in Monessen were given puzzles based on "Fifty Shades of Grey" that contained terms including "spanking," ''submissive," ''leather cuffs" and "bondage." Other words on the list were more explicit. Parent James Carter complained about it at Tuesday night's school board meeting, saying he tried to question the school's principal and dean of students, but they refused to talk when he insisted on recording their conversation.

Tom Bakk said.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama appealed Tuesday to skeptical members of the Congressional Black Caucus to give him “fast track” authority to negotiate trade deals. Members told him they want assurances that future trade agreements provide jobs for U.S. workers. The Democratic lawmakers who attended a 90-minute White House meeting Tuesday said Obama made a case for trade, singling out current negotiations with Asia and Pacific Rim countries. He stressed that without a deal with Asia, China could get an economic upper hand in the region, participants said.

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Wisconsin grocery shoppers may soon be able to sample mini-shots of hard liquor in an aisle near them. The Assembly’s government operations committee unanimously approved a bipartisan bill Tuesday that would allow retailers with liquor licenses to provide small shots of booze to their customers. The measure would allow shoppers to sample one half-ounce of hard alcohol, the equivalent of one-third a shot. Rep. Joel Kleefisch, R-Oconomowoc, says he sponsored the bill to level the playing field for distilleries and other liquor producers as they compete with breweries and wineries, which can offer samples.

    For decades, video game fans have been clamoring for some kind of big media translation of Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda. We’ve dreamt of movies, TV shows and everything in between. The closest we’ve come is a brief animated series from the late ’80s. Now, those dreams may be about to come true on a bigger scale. Netflix is reportedly out to writers for a live-action Legend of Zelda TV series. Nintendo is on board and working closely with Netflix but can ultimately scrap the idea if it doesn’t fit in with their vision of the series. Apparently, the streaming...

    It’s not very often that Hollywood unleashes two major theatrical bombs over the same weekend. But that’s what happened when “Jupiter Ascending” and “Seventh Son” both crashed and burned in U.S. theaters on Friday. Warner Bros.’ “Jupiter Ascending,” starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, is quickly dropping in estimates to a thin $18 million weekend at the box office. With a budget north of $175 million, the Wachowskis sci-fi fantasy tentpole could lose tens of millions barring a dramatic turnaround overseas.

    Former Florida Governor and likely 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush reportedly “never forgave” Mitt Romney for moving to the right on illegal immigration, which was perhaps one of the only issues where Romney was somewhat in line with conservatives. Romney announced on Friday that he would not make a third run for the White House, and NBC’s Chuck Todd said Romney was Jeb Bush’s preferred candidate in 2007 before Romney flipped on immigration. Todd added that “some of the interest in the race was personal” Jeb Bush “never forgave” Romney for using “immigration as a wedge issue against McCain.”

There are a few reasons for this, some of which came as a surprise to me, as outlined by my friend Stephen Green (a.k.a. Vodkapundit). One big factor which doesn’t seem to make a lot of news is that the primary component of burgers is beef, and the cost has been on the rise.

I think she’s following the Trump strategy at this point: There’s no downside to hinting you might run even when you know you aren’t running.

Four years later, the Republican returned as a compassionate voice for education reform and society’s have-nots. He won. It’s a lesson that still shapes Bush’s approach to politics and was evident this past week when he took the latest step toward the 2016 presidential race.

At a news conference, he slammed their $750 million transportation plan that doesn't call for any new taxes. "The panel of experts I convened said there's a $6 billion shortfall over the next 10 years and their response yesterday was $200 million from the general fund and $550 million from la-la land," Dayton told reporters at a news conference Friday morning. Dayton also accused Republicans of not even wanting to solve the problem.

Now, a recent Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board ruling has essentially given them the go-ahead.
