Search Warrants Executed At Risky Business

Brainerd Police Chief, Cork McQuiston reminds us that the sale of synthetic drugs is illegal in Minnesota.  New legislation effective on July 1 of this year, made the possession and sale of these drugs illegal. 

A recent raid at Risky Business, located at 326 Washington Street in Brainerd uncovered over 12-thousand dollars worth of the substances and the matter has been turned over to the Crow Wing County Attorney for review. 

At the same time this warrant was being executed the business was also being investigated for non-payment of state sales taxes. That investigation was conducted by agents of the Department of Revenue. 

The Brainerd Police Department asks anyone with information concerning the sale or possession of these synthetic drugs, to
contact them at 829-2805.

Bemidji Nurses Have A Deal

Bemidji nurses have formally approved a contract offer from Sanford Bemidji Hospital, ending nearly six months of contract negotiations that included informational picketing and a strike vote.

The current contract between the hospital and 230 nurses represented by The Minnesota Nurses Association expired on February 28, 2011, and negotiations have been ongoing since early April. Nurses voted overwhelmingly on July 28 to reject Sanford’s “final” contract offer, instead authorizing bargaining team leaders to call for a strike. The ratification vote means a strike will be averted

MPCA Seeks Comment on Little Rock Lake

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is seeking comments on a revised water quality improvement report for Little Rock Lake, just southeast of Rice, in western Benton County.

The report, known as a Total Maximum Daily Load, or T-M-D-L, focuses on pollution caused by excess nutrients, particularly phosphorus. Little Rock Lake was placed on Minnesota’s list of impaired waters in 2008.

The report was recently revised to include load allocations for municipal stormwater runoff in the area, prompting this second public comment period, which begins September 12 and continues through October 12. For more information, go to the M-P-C-A website at
