Here's a WJON FlashBriefing for May 8, 2017.



NORTHSIDE STABBING -- Police are asking anyone who witnessed a fight
Sunday afternoon in North St. Cloud to contact them. Police believe it was a
pre-arranged meeting where four men and three women fought with clubs,
sticks and other weapons in the 21-hundred block of 8th Street North. Police
arrested 25-year-old Shyla Rae Storkamp for allegedly stabbing another woman
during that fight. NON life-threatening injuries for the woman stabbed. And now
police want witnesses to help piece it all together.


CLEARWATER BRIDGE -- If you drive the Highway 24 bridge between
Clearwater and Clear Lake, be prepared for some slow-downs. Crews are
building temporary lanes as part of the new bridge building project.


SPAS MERGE -- Two area spas and salons are becoming one. Daylily Spa has
bought Michelle Kenric Hair and Spa of Sartell. Combined, they'll have 50
employees at the two locations.


GANDER MOUNTAIN CLOSING -- Gander Mountain stores are going out of
business, including the Waite Park store. But that doesn't mean that store will
close for good. Camping World has bought the Gander Mountain name and
plans to re-open at least 70 Gander stores with new merchandise. Will Waite
Park be one of them? Stay tuned...


CULTURAL CELEBRATION -- The Paramount Theatre's hosting a celebration of
the St. Cloud area's cultural heritage -- American, Somali, Scandinavian,
German and Mexican cultures. The event Tuesday from 4 to 7 will feature
traditional clothing, art, music and food from the different cultures.


GOLD STAR CANOEIST -- Canoeist Jim Grigler rowed his way into St. Cloud
over the weekend. The 67-year-old Winona man is rowing from Lake Itasca to
the Gulf of Mexico, raising money and awareness for Gold Star Families --
families who've lost loved ones to military conflict.
