WJON Radio News: FlashBriefing for June 16, 2017
Here's a WJON FlashBriefing for June 16, 2017.
OFFICER ACQUITTED -- After deliberating five days, a jury's acquitted a police officer of the shooting death of black motorist Philando Castile. Even so, the city of St. Anthony says it will dismiss the officer.
SHOOTING ACQUITTAL -- Another jury -- this one in Stearns County -- has acquitted a St. Cloud on attempted murder and assault with dangerous weapon charges. 54-year-old Herbert Campbell was found NOT guilty in a shooting incident that injured another man in March.
MILLE LACS RESORT AID -- Tucked into an economic development law is a $150,000 grant for just one Lake Mille Lacs resort, impacted by the DNR's walleye restrictions. Only one, even though dozens of businesses are impacted. The DNR commissioner's concerned the grant will set a bad precedent for the state.
SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE -- Catholic Charities of St. Cloud won’t be holding a school supply drive or distribution program this year. They're taking time to refocus on food shelf and clothing programs this year. So the Salvation Army of St. Cloud is hoping to fill the void with their school supply drive.
FOLEY FUN DAYS -- The city of Foley's partying this weekend. Foley Fun Days is six days of family friendly fun. It all wraps up Wednesday with The Grande Parade and concert downtown.
