Abe Lincoln’s roots are in rural Kentucky

Area cities regulate e-cigarette sales

More and more cities in Ramsey County are updating municipal tobacco ordinances to regulate the sale of electronic devices that deliver nicotine such as e-cigarettes. Products like e-cigarettes do not contain tobacco, but contain the same -- some times higher-- amount of nicotine found in regular cigarettes. People who use e-cigarettes often refer to it as “vaping,’ since the heated nicotine produces a vapor instead of smoke.

Archdiocese discloses sexual abuse claims against nine more priests

On Monday, Feb. 17, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis released a list of nine more priests thought to have been credibly accused of sexual misconduct.
The archdiocese released the names following a comprehensive file review by Kinsale Management Consulting, an outside firm based in Los Angeles, Calif. The review began in December 2013, when a Ramsey County judge ordered the archdiocese to release the list of priests who had been credibly accused of sexual abuse. At that time, the archdiocese disclosed claims against 33 priests.
