Governor Tim Walz says he’s “feeling great” after minor surgery on his left knee last week, and adds a similar procedure might not be needed on his right knee to repair a medial meniscus tear:

“This one I don’t know yet, but it feels like it might be down, so what they’re gonna have me do is, as I’m on the bike yesterday (Mon), I’ll be on the treadmill walking… and then hopefully next week start running again. They said there’s a potential that maybe… I might not have to do it.”

And Walz remembered a fellow runner last night (Tues), presenting a proclamation at a park in northeast Minneapolis declaring Tuesday “Gabe Day” in Minnesota.   It’s in honor of U-of-M All-American Gabe Grunewald from Perham, who died at age 33 earlier this month following a ten-year battle with cancer.

The parents of a 5-year-old Minnesota boy who was thrown from a third-floor balcony at the Mall of America say their son remains in intensive care due to severe complications from the April attack.

In an update on their GoFundMe page Tuesday, the parents of the victim, identified only as Landen, say he has had more than 15 medical procedures, including surgeries for two broken arms and a broken leg, facial and skull fractures and removal of his spleen. The parents say it has been a challenging road to recovery and they are not sure when Landen will be able to come home,

He was thrown nearly 40 feet to the ground by Emmanuel Aranda, who was sentenced to 19 years in prison earlier this month for attempted first-degree murder.

The farm economy of the last few years has been difficult for farm families. The downturn doesn’t just affect the financial and emotional well-being of farm and ranch owners; it affects all family members – including kids.

In response, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) is offering a free, three-hour workshop that provides an overview of the stressors unique to growing up on a farm. Supporting Farm Youth through Understanding and Intervention will be offered July 22 in Willmar and again on July 25 in Detroit Lakes. Both sessions run from 9 a.m. until noon.

After four years without an arrest, a now 18-year-old suspect has been charged in the brutal murder of a north Minneapolis activist Susan Spiller.

The break in the case came when fingerprints from the murder scene were found to match the suspect’s. That’s after the suspect’s fingerprints were taken in an unrelated case.

The suspect is charged with 2nd degree murder in the July 2016 death.

A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by nine former University of Minnesota football players who claimed their rights were violated after a woman alleged she was the victim of a gang rape in 2016. U.S. District Judge Donovan Frank found no merit to claims that the men were subjected to “extreme gender bias.” No criminal charges were filed, but the university found 10 football players were responsible for sexual misconduct. After appeals, five students were expelled or suspended.

Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar is among ten Democratic hopefuls squaring off tonight (8-10pm CT) in Miami for the first presidential debate, with ten more contenders on stage tomorrow night (Thurs). Hamline University political analyst David Schultz says Klobuchar — who’s at one- to two-percent in national polls — “has to hit the proverbial home run and have a breakout moment” tonight:

“What happens after Wednesday night — Thursday night for lots of candidates — those who don’t do well, the ability to raise money starts to go down dramatically.”

Schultz notes Klobuchar will be fighting for face time with nine other candidates tonight — plus she won’t have a chance to spar with Democratic frontrunners Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, who are up against eight other Democrats tomorrow night.
