ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - The company that bought the Verso Paper plant in Sartell after last year's explosion and fire is having one heck of a rummage sale.

Fork trucks, hydraulic shears, excavators - everything must go. Thousands of tools, machines, supplies, vehicles and equipment from the former plant will be sold by AIM Development at an upcoming auction. Jeff McGlin is in charge of the mill reclamation project for AIM. He expects everything in the plant will sell at some price and is anticipating 600 to 700 bidders for the mill's contents.

The St. Cloud Times says county documents show AIM paid about $12.5 million for the property, including nearly $10 million in personal property. On site and online bidding starts Tuesday and ends Wednesday.

Michele Bachmann Announces She Will Not Run For Another Term

05/29/2013 - 12:30 PM

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Republicans expect a long line of potential candidates from their party to replace Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann.

State Rep. Matt Dean, a former House majority leader, told The Associated Press that he's inclined to run and would announce his formal intentions soon. Bachmann announced Wednesday she would leave the seat after completing her fourth term, setting off a 2014 scramble. U.S. Rep. Michelle Bachmann's surprise announcement that she won't seek a fifth term has her opponent saying that she "read the tea leaves."

Jim Graves is the Democrat who nearly beat Bachmann in November. He says he thinks Bachmann heard a message in last fall's close race. Graves said in an interview on KARE-TV of Minneapolis on Wednesday that voters are looking for someone who has more of a business background and understands the economy.

Graves is a businessman who built his wealth in the hotel business. Graves was planning a second run against Bachmann. He says he has no idea who his new opponent will be.

Pulju Sentenced To Nearly 22 Years In Prison In Murder Of His Mother

Chad Matthew Pulju was sentenced to nearly 22 years in prison on Friday after pleading guilty to second degree murder in the stabbing death of his mother, Geraldine Delores Bennet.

St. Cloud Police were called to the 2700 block of Atwood Drive just after midnight on August 23, 2012 after reports of two people arguing. According to the report, when police arrived they found Bennet lying on the floor covered in blood with threatening injuries apparently from an edged weapon.

Bennet was transported to St. Cloud Hospital where she was pronounced dead around 2 a.m. According to an autopsy of Bennet, the 68-year-old had forty-seven stab wounds on her face, neck, and arm.

Pulju claims to have no recollection of the night’s event, due to being in an alcohol induced blackout.

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - An Army veteran from St. Cloud is on a mission to get more than 500 photographs of Minnesota service members killed in Vietnam.

Robert Ahles was drafted into the Vietnam War after college. He tells the St. Cloud Times that more than 1,000 Minnesotans died during that war, and about half of them don't have their pictures posted on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund website.

So, the 66-year-old is working his way through Minnesota's cities and towns to find relatives of the deceased. He started his volunteer effort in January, and has posted 43 photos to the website as of last week. An additional 25 pictures were posted by others.

Ahles says it's the least he can do for his fallen comrades, who should be recognized for their sacrifice.
