WJON Radio News: FlashBriefing for September 12, 2017

WJON FlashBriefing - 630x420


Here’s a WJON FlashBriefing for September 12, 2017.



ZIMMERMAN BUILDING CRASH — Police have arrested 63-year-old Robert Johnson of Zimmerman on criminal vehicular operation after he crashed his pickup into the Reliant Systems building in Zimmerman, hurting five people. Police believe alcohol was involved.



PANHANDLING — St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis says the city is looking for ways to deal with panhandling. But he says it’s tough since city ordinances against asking for money on a street corner were ruled unconstitutional. A new law might help — it’s now illegal to impersonate a veteran. So if a panhandler is holding a sign saying they’re a veteran — and they’re not — that’s a misdemeanor.



CSB, SJU ENROLLMENT — More students are attending the College of St. Benedict and St. John’s University this fall. A 2-percent increase this fall from last year. St. Ben’s enrollment stands at 1,915. St. John’s — 1,706.



SARTELL LIFESAVERS — The city of Sartell, honoring six people for their life-saving efforts. Two teenage girls, two Sartell firefighters and a Sartell police officer who saved a 16-year-old boy who was electrocuted. And another officer who saved a man overdosing on heroin.



ST. CLOUD PRIDE — St. Cloud’s 8th annual Pride Festival is this weekend, celebrating progress for the LGBTQ community and promoting equality. Entertainment at Lake George Saturday with “Pride in the Park.”



SALSA FEST — Long Prairie is the place to be Saturday to get your salsa on. Salsa Fest will celebrate the vegetable and pepper sauce at the Todd County Fairgrounds with live music, food vendors, salsa ice cream, local artisan shopping — and of course, a salsa contest.
