Here's a WJON FlashBriefing for April 5, 2017.



METH CHARGES -- Felony drug charges for 36-year-old Donald Schlichting of St.
Cloud. Police found two pounds of methamphetamine in his car during a February
traffic stop. A month later, more charges were added after a car from Arizona with
more meth was delivered to him and another man.


TRAIN FATAL -- A fatal train accident overnight. Police say a northbound freight train
hit and killed 35-year-old Kyle Schiltz around 3:15 this morning, just south of
Motley. Police are still investigating, but say Schiltz wasn't in a vehicle at the time.


TEACHER SHORTAGE -- St. Cloud State is trying to help turn-around Minnesota's
teacher shortage. They're trying to get more young people interested in getting their
teaching degrees...using workshops and outreach programs to encourage college-
bound students to consider teaching, especially in Special Education and in
Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.


FOLEY CHICKENS -- If you live in Foley city limits, you still can't keep chickens on
your property. The city council last night rejected a proposed chicken ordinance --
and its $15 annual permit.
