    The Twin Ports Interchange reconstruction project through Lincoln Park soared $100 million over budget this month, forcing planners to defer indefinitely portions of the work scheduled for 2020-23. The $343 million project is scheduled to begin in May. Minnesota Department of Transportation figures released Monday at a regular public meeting about the project showed a $443 million price tag. "This is what happens with every big project," Duane Hill, district engineer based in Duluth, said Monday. "You have to manage it as you go along. We thought we did a good job initially coming up with a budget for this...

    The city of Gautier, Mississippi wants to be removed from from New York City's homeless relocation list. Three days after our story revealed the big apple was shipping homeless people to live in places like Gautier and Gulfport. Gautier city leaders voted Tuesday night to send a letter to the special one-time assistance program. The program uses New York taxpayer money to give the homeless a year's worth of rent to get out of town, leaving small towns stuck to deal with the growing homeless population. Gautier's mayor told us he didn't even know this was happening in his own...

    Unemployment is down, wages are up and to many Americans, the financial crisis may feel like a memory. But for those in rural America and regions tied to industries on the decline, joblessness remains a huge problem. Hillary Clinton says there is one possible solution to joblessness ó but it's a tough pill to swallow. In "What Happened," Clinton writes that the possible solution is one few people want to discuss. "As hard as it is," she writes, "people may have to leave their hometowns and look for work elsewhere in America." While she advocates for local governments, employers and...

    Mr. MAGA comes around to the Williamson Plan. And lo, there was a light in the darkness. President Trump has embraced the Williamson Doctrine, the Gospel of U-Haul, the Grand Unified Theory of Getting Off Your Ass and Going Where the Jobs Are. MAGA, kids. MAGA. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Trump boasted about the new American factories that he expects to be built under his watch ó electronics manufacturer Foxconn is planning (probably) a new Wisconsin facility ó and then suggested that the people in communities that were not positioned to benefit from these investments might...

    Tyler DurdenDecember 21, 2016 One week ago, New Yorkers were captivated, and unnerved, by a 40-minute long military exercise in which one USAF C-130 and several HH-60 Pave Hawk helicopters could be seen circling at very low altitudes above Manhattan. While the US military kept silent about the overflight, U.S. Air Force Col. Nicholas Broccoli, the vice commander of the Air National Guardís 106th Rescue Wing, said the aircraft were conducting "standard military training." However, one look at the flight pattern of the plane shows there was seemingly little that was "standard" about a C-130(snip)Today we learn that the overflights...

    The left has concocted a lucrative category of politically correct victims: "climate refugees." It's the new Green racket. U.S. taxpayers will now be forking over untold billions to ease the pain allegedly inflicted on "carbon's casualties" by industrial activity. By contrast, those who have suffered as a direct result of government incompetence by federal environmental bureaucrats continue to get the shaft. Consider the plight of two tribes: the Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw in Louisiana and the Navajo Nation in New Mexico. The New York Times splashed a viral story on its pages this week spotlighting the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's...

    (Reuters) - Americans moving out of state in 2014 were most likely to head to places that were warmer and more affordable, such as the South and Southwest, according to studies by two major moving companies. The 47th annual report by Allied Van Lines showed that Illinois topped the list of states people are moving away from with 1,372 net moves, followed by Pennsylvania, New York, Michigan and New Jersey. The states have remained in the top five since 2010, the company said.

    Hundreds of Muslims trapped in ghetto-like conditions in western Myanmar after their homes were torched by Buddhist mobs last year were moved Saturday to a camp for internally displaced people, officials said. Government spokesman Win Myaing said the relocation from Aung Mingalar quarter in Sittwe township was voluntary. But one well-known activist said many of the families were worried their conditions would go from bad to worse once they left. Myanmar, a predominantly Buddhist country of 60 million, has been gripped by religious violence since military rulers handed over power to a nominally civilian government. Ö

    New legislation is forcing gun manufacturing company Beretta to uproot and take their business elsewhere. Established in 1526, Beretta holds the distinction of being the oldest active firearms manufacturer in the world. The U.S. factory is located in Accokeek, Maryland, and has been a staple of the local economy for years. Beretta warned that stricter gun control laws would push the company outside of state lines, but that didnít stop Maryland legislators. Jeffrey Reh, a spokesman for Beretta who also serves as the President of Stoeger Industries under Beretta, announced that the company would begrudgingly uproot and take its business...

    Lone Star State Governor Rick Perry seriously amped up his West Coast recruiting efforts this month in response to Californiaís passage of Proposition 30, a statewide vote that dramatically increased the stateís personal income tax rate. Taxpayers there will be paying up to 3% more on earned income, and that increase is retroactive to January 1, 2012. More than a thousand miles away from Sacramento, a far more positive outlook counters the frustration felt by many California employees and business owners. Just last week Governor Perry met with 200 Golden State business owners, and two weeks ago he purchased $24,000...
