On All Things Considered this evening, Art Hughes takes a look at the pending sale of Camp Coldwater Spring, an obscure historic tract near Fort Snelling. The National Park Service is taking public comment today and tomorrow on possible uses for the land.
The race for Ramsey County sheriff has been a heated one between incumbent Bob Fletcher and challenger Bill Finney, the former St. Paul police chief. Marisa Helms takes a look at the campaign on the eve of a debate between the candidates.
