ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) For the first time in two months, Minnesota officials will appraise the state job picture.
The Department of Employment and Economic Development was releasing two months of unemployment data Thursday. The report also will detail job gains or losses for September and October.
Figures are typically released on a monthly basis, but the data collection and analysis were disrupted by the federal government's 16-day shutdown in October.
At last check, Minnesota had a seasonally adjusted unemployment rate of 5.1 percent, which was substantially better than the nation as a whole. Minnesota had also regained all of the jobs shed during the last recession. But more than 150,000 people seeking jobs in the state still lacked them as of August.
Governor Scott Walker and Department of Natural Resources Secretary Cathy Stepp have posted a new video about how excited they are for next week's gun deer season.
Unfinished business brings a Vernon County man back to a La Crosse County courtroom for sentencing on Thursday...
Michael Eales of La Farge will be sentenced for a car theft charge from 2009 that had been dropped as part of a diversion deal. The punishment for this charge may be short, compared to the 30-year prison term Eales recently received for making child pornography. The 23-year-old Eales was sentenced last month in federal court for having sexual contact with a one-year-old boy while producing child porn. Vernon County also is waiting to prosecute Eales on sexual assault charges, apparently connected to the pornography case.
