  • Surfside ParkFlooding, lake sewage releases: What we've learned
    There's an ick factor to the storms that swept across Minnesota this weekend. Torrential rain dropped as much as five-and-a-half inches in parts of the state by Monday morning. That caused sewer overflows into Lake Minnetonka that have already closed beaches. But experts say that's supposed to happen.7:20 a.m.
  • VapingAs e-cigarette use jumps, doctors divided on advice to patients
    The use of e-cigarettes is moving ahead of definitive scientific proof of benefits or harm, observers say. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has just started the process to decide how to regulate the e-cigarette industry.7:25 a.m.
  • A scrim is used to soften the light during filmingSmall films flock to Minnesota lured by location -- and rebates
    Aiming to lure more filmmakers to Minnesota, state lawmakers last year resurrected the "snowbate" program which provides rebates to film companies for 20 percent of what they spend in the state -- and 25 percent if they shoot outside of the Twin Cities metro area. Most of the film crews coming to the state are heading to northeast Minnesota.8:25 a.m.
  • Bob Mould releases an 'emotional rollercoaster' of an album
    Today's music is from the song "I Don't Know You Anymore" from Bob Mould's new album "Beauty and Ruin" which is being released today. Much of the album by the co-founder of Husker Du deals with the loss of Mould's father who died in 2012. In her review, The Current's Mary Lucia says "'Beauty and Ruin' may very well be the most epic emotional rollercoaster ever pressed into 36 minutes - and for Bob Mould, that says a lot." Mould will be part of the "Minnesota Music on a Stick" lineup at the State Fair this year.8:49 a.m.
