    ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — There’s something you should know if you’re getting, or already have, a real live Christmas tree this year. Firefighters say safety is especially key this year. The local drought, combined with people buying their trees early this year, could be cause for concern. READ MORE: St. Paul Schools To Extend Winter Break Due To Ongoing COVID StrainAt Happy Land Tree Lot in St. Paul, there’s much to smile about. Tony Bacon is a longtime employee. “It’s just been constant. People are eager to get trees,” Bacon said. But those trees were harder to come by for the growers. Happy Land, which cuts fresh from their Sandstone farm, used extreme irrigation methods this summer to make sure the drought didn’t dry out their trees. “Lots of fertilizer, and then extra irrigation,” Bacon said. “Our trees, you know, are a lot heavier than they used to be, it’s because all of that moisture.” He says one way to gauge the moisture and health of a tree in a lot is to run your hand down and...
    A WEALTHY pensioner ‘killed’ a protected tree which blocked sunlight from bathing his luxury home after the council refused to let him cut it down. Robert Page, 68, arranged to have the 65ft pine tree in the front garden of his £900k property in Poole Harbour, Dorset, poisoned with a deadly herbicide, a court heard. 3Robert Page is accused of poisioning a protected tree which blocked his sunlightCredit: BNPS 3A tree expert claims that the pine was being killed off by herbicideCredit: BNPS The 'huge and historic' specimen was protected by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) and had stood in the posh neighbourhood since the early 1950s. Salisbury Crown Court heard that Mr Page had applied for consent to have the mature pine tree removed from 2015. But he became frustrated after the application was refused in 2018, and the evergreen began to wither and die despite having decades of natural life ahead of it, a jury heard. A landscape gardener employed by Mr Page emailed the town hall informing them he would be removing the tree which was “dying...
    “Fire Nagy!” chants broke out yet again Monday night during the Bulls game at the United Center as Chicago sports fans continue to express their displeasure with Bears coach Matt Nagy at games — regardless of the sport and venue. Bears fans unleashed the chant during the Week 11 loss to the Baltimore Ravens — the Bears’ fifth straight before a Thanksgiving win against the Detroit Lions. Over the last week, it has echoed at Bulls and Blackhawks games and on Monday night included a taunting variation of “Hire Nagy!” directed from Illinois basketball fans to Notre Dame fans after Irish football coach Brian Kelly was reported to be leaving for LSU. It’s likely to continue Sunday at Soldier Field if the Bears can’t keep up with the 9-2 Arizona Cardinals. But at least one Bears player hopes it won’t. “We hate it, honestly,” Bears safety Eddie Jackson said Monday after practice at Halas Hall. “The fans have got to understand that doesn’t help anything. Y’all want us to play better, do better, that’s not helping when...

    Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, harshly criticized President Biden's nearly $2-trillion spending bill, which Democrats want to pass before Christmas. On "Fox & Friends," Jordan warned that the Build Back Better plan will only exacerbate the ongoing inflation crisis and called on moderate Democratic Sens. Kyrsten Sinema, Ariz., and Joe Manchin, W. Va., to "hold firm" to block the bill from passing. CHAD PERGRAM: BIDEN'S SPENDING BILL IS A DRAMA IN 4 ACTS REP. JIM JORDAN: I don't think there'll be any Republican in the Senate or the House [who will] vote for this crazy piece of legislation. And frankly, let's hope Senator Sinema and Senator Manchin hold firm, and they don't allow this thing to pass because we know it's going to exacerbate the inflation problem we talked about. It's part of the Democrats' crazy, crazy economic plan. Their economic plan has basically been ‘lock down the economy, spend like crazy, pay people not to work.’ And now for everyone who has been working, oh, they're getting ready to raise your taxes. Such a deal.  CLICK HERE TO GET THE...
    Tom Brady will be enjoying the ultimate cheat day this Thanksgiving.    The quarterback ordinarily adheres to a very restrictive diet, but plans on completely breaking it for the upcoming feast.    'Just like everyone else,' Tom, 44, said during an interview with Oprah Winfrey on his SiriusXM show, Let's Go! 'That's the one meal where I'm just like "Screw it, let's go for it."

    TURKEY, stuffing, pigs in blankets, roast potatoes and a whole heap of vegetables. That's the traditional Christmas dinner - but many children aren't a fan of the posh roast. 2Some parents have decided not to force a traditional Christmas dinner on their kids, giving them pizza insteadCredit: Getty And instead of trying to force their kids to scarf down the turkey dinner, some parents have decided to let them have free rein on Christmas day - and choose exactly what they want to eat. "I tell my children (boys 10 & 5) they can eat whatever they want on Xmas day," mum of two Becki Dunwell wrote on the Family Lowdown Tips and Ideas group on Facebook. "Chocolate for breakfast? Sure.

    Oscar winning director Peter Jackson has just finished what he calls his dream job, as the famous fan of The Beatles edited almost 60 hours of footage of the band shot half a century ago during the recording of "Let It Be."The result is "Get Back," a miniseries for Disney+ that premieres on Thanksgiving Day.It is a revelation, and that's not an exaggeration -- especially if you came of age listening to the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr.Even if you know a lot about them, the miniseries still redefines them.Watching their journey back to where they once belonged will leave fans forever changed and demonstrate to all who were born after their break up why these guys were so special."It's very entertaining, because they're trying to achieve something that's very ambitious, and a lot of things go wrong for various reasons," Jackson said.

    Rittenhouse was acquitted of multiple counts, including felony murder, last week after a jury agreed that he had in fact acted in self-defense when he fatally shot two men and wounded a third during the Black Lives Matter Riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin last summer. What else? In a tweet posted Monday morning, the DuPage Democratic Party condemned Lemanski's tweets as "incredibly insensitive." We are deeply saddened by the tragedy in Waukesha.We are aware of statements made by a former member of our organization and find them to be incredibly insensitive and not in alignment of who we are as an organization. Our organization does not support hate in any form — DuPage Democrats (@DuPage Democrats) 1637593764 Lemanski, too, shared a statement she made on the DuPage Democrats page on her own Twitter account, in which she mustered up some form of an apology.

    The trial of the three men accused of slaying Ahmaud Arbery has Black Americans walking on pins and needles once again. Whatever the jury decides, I’m afraid, will fail to address a damming question that the tragic incident symbolizes: How can Black people ever be secure in America? Executed by three strangers while jogging in a white neighborhood, Arbery’s killing reflects the mindset of domination in the culture of white supremacy: the belief that any random white person has the right to accost and detain a Black person with impunity. Authorities are ready to accept their claims of righteous endangerment–even when they are the instigators of the danger. Yet, the Arbery encounter is just the latest in a series of violent racial incidents that linger in memory: George Floyd, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Breonna Taylor, Eric Garner, and so many others. The fatal consequences are recounted on television and social media and trigger episodes of post-traumatic stress in the Black psyche. Add to these graphic executions the racism inherent in the criminal justice system, and the increasingly unstable antics of...
    A WOMAN revealed she got payback on her mother’s friend years after the friend snubbed her as a child.  The mother argued that her daughter should have handled the situation differently because the drama happened so long ago.  3A bride is feeling uncertain about how she handled her guest list for her weddingCredit: Getty 3The bride said she previously got into a disagreement with her mom over situationCredit: Getty The woman explained that when she was a teenager, her mother’s friend got married at her house. She therefore had to relocate for the night because the friend didn’t want any children present at her nuptials.  The woman said wasn’t even allowed to quietly stay in her room for the event. “About 17 years later, it was time for me to get married, and my mother wanted to invite this friend,” the woman explained. “Well, I said absolutely the hell not. I wasn't allowed to be in my own bedroom when she got married at my parents' apartment, so why should I allow her to be at my wedding?” She said...
    (CNN)It is human nature to gossip, to peer behind the gossamer curtain of secrecy separating the rich and famous from the common and curious. In the early 2000s, that age-old impulse reached a toxic nadir. There, in the corners of an internet that still felt novel and lawless, a new breed of bloggers redefined celebrity gossip and set in motion a ruthless media machine that chewed up and spat out any fresh-faced, high-heeled celebrity in its path. Now, scrolling back through popular dirt sites like Perez Hilton, Lainey Gossip and TMZ feels very much like looking back on the cringiest years of a digital adolescence. But when they reigned, no young starlet was safe from the constant churn of upskirts, invasive paparazzi shots and humiliating headlines. The coverage was caustic and scalding, and thirsty devotees sipped it all down as loyally as a mid-morning latte. Much has changed since the early aughts, or at least it's nice to think so. The rise of social media and a socially conscious public have cooled the frenzied paparazzi surge and curbed the worst...
    White House press secretary Jen Psaki suggested Friday that President Joe Biden is unfazed by the 'Let's Go Brandon' chants, signs and merchandise that are supposed to be a stand-in for 'f**k Joe Biden.'    'I don't think he spends much time focused on it or thinking about it,' she said at the briefing, after a number of prominent Republicans, including former President Donald Trump, have embraced the phrase. Psaki added, 'Well, it takes two to move toward a more civil engagement and discourse in this country.'  'And the president's going to continue to operate, as you said, from the promise he made early on, which is that he wants to govern for all Americans,' Psaki stated.  During the 2020 campaign, Biden called for an end of the 'uncivil war' between Republicans and Democrats.

    TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami) – Gov. Ron DeSantis is defending his embrace of the phrase “Let’s Go Brandon.” It’s used by Trump supporters as a euphemism for an obscenity followed by Joe Biden.

    Noordwaard, Netherlands (CNN)In the spitting rain that is endemic to the Netherlands, Anneke van Lelieveld bundles up in her bright orange cardigan at her home on the New Merwede River, and turns to look out over the wetlands behind her garden.She loves the vista. She loves docking a boat just strides from her vegetable plot. She loves spotting eagles and beavers. But there is a reticence to her joy.Anneke van Lelieveld used to look out over her neighbor's farmland. Now his fields are gone, and in their place is wetland. To fight the climate crisis, she says, change like that is "necessary even when it breaks your heart.""The mixed feeling is that it was my neighbor's land," van Lelieveld says. "I'm sad because I know how sad my neighbor is. Because he was giving up his land."What used to be her neighbor's farm, walled off from the nearby river that posed a constant threat, is now pockmarked with water. It is flooded, purposefully, to soak up water when the river swells. It's not suitable for farming, but Van Lelieveld is...

    Former Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter on Wednesday warned fellow Democrats that the GOP cannot become 'the party of the parents' after Republican Glenn Youngkin's win over Democratic challenger and incumbent Terry McAuliffe in the Virginia gubernatorial race earlier in the day.  Youngkin's victory, which was a catastrophic defeat for Democrats, led Cutter to one conclusion: 'We cannot let it go.'  'The one thing that we need to make sure of is that Republicans in 2022 don’t become is the party of parent, because we need to be the party of the parents,' Cutter told MSNBC on Wednesday in a video tweeted out later in the day. 'And we are. We're the ones that care about school funding. We're the ones that care about making sure parents can send their kids to school because they have jobs to go to. All of this. We need to own that agenda. We cannot let it go.' A handful of political analysts cited a united parental front in Virginia as a reason behind Younkin's unlikely win against McAuliffe, who had previously served as the state's...

    You may be seeing the phrase “Let’s go Brandon” all over social media, but who is Brandon, and why are they cheering him on? The phrase isn’t a cheer for someone named Brandon… the truth is it’s actually a vulgar term essentially telling Biden to fuck himself. It’s popular among conservatives and members of the GOP who think they are being slick and in unison by using it. But how exactly did it start and why Brandon? As do many other stupid and horrible things, the phrase began at a NASCAR race at the Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama. After a 28-year-old driver, Brandon Brown won his first Xfinity Series on Oct. 2, crowds chanted what reporters thought was “Let’s go Brandon.”  “As you can hear the chants from the crowd — ‘Let’s go, Brandon,'” an NBC News reporter mistakenly commented. But in reality, the crowds were chanting “Fuck Joe Biden.” And that my friends is how the phrase came to be— no one cared about the reporter's mistake instead they took to using the phrase for their own agenda. Within days, “Let’s...
    A SOUTHWEST pilot's "Let's Go Brandon" sign-off message on a flight from Houston to Albuquerque on Friday has been slammed by the airline.

According to several passengers on the flight where the reported incident took place, the pilot speaking over his plane’s public address system reportedly told passengers, “Let’s go, Brandon” — an anti-Biden inside joke, the NY Post reports. In a TikTok, the pilot can be heard saying the following: "We’re heading east at about 107 or 108 mph. Clear visibility, mostly clear skies, about 77 degrees.

     A MUM showcasing her gentle parenting style has been slammed by commenters who say that she’s giving her kids too much control and they’ll become "monsters".  Mum Emily filmed herself talking to her toddler during a tantrum, and while she thought it was an example of how to let children regulate themselves, many disagreed with the approach. 2Mum Emily showed her daughter's tantrum on her Tiktok pageCredit: TikTok/@emilyjeanne333 2The mum says she's setting up her daughter for 'big things' through gentle parentingCredit: TikTok/@emilyjeanne333 Emily and her young daughter were sitting the car and the child began to deliberately squirt her carton of juice. While many parents would shout or throw the juice away, Emily decided to encourage her daughter to use breathing techniques. She gave her daughter the juice carton twice, and both times the girl either deliberately squirted the juice or kicked the carton, despite Emily’s encouragement of deep breathing.

    Braves fans at Game 3 of the World Series took their opportunity to jeer Astros second baseman Jose Altuve with a “cheater” chant.

    MATT CROOKS dreams of becoming the second epileptic to play in the Premier League. Not that epilepsy has ever, or will ever, define the Middlesbrough star. 1Matt Crooks is aiming to be the Premier League's second-ever epileptic player everCredit: Getty Crooks, 27, was diagnosed with the condition after his first seizure aged 18 following a night out with his Huddersfield academy team-mates. In Scotland, at Rangers in 2017, he arrived at training after another night on the town but had run out of medication and missed his last two tablets. The next thing he remembered was Gers striker Kenny Miller’s face lighting up in front of him two hours later. That was Crooks’ last seizure — and the midfielder is now flying on the pitch after his summer move from Rotherham. Three wins have put Boro back in the promotion mix. And asked if the ambition is to become only the second epileptic, after Jay Bothroyd, to play in the top flight, Crooks said: “That would be good but I haven’t and absolutely won’t let it define me. “It’s something...

    Katie Couric called on CNN to publicly recognize that they shouldn’t have let Chris Cuomo hold gag interviews with his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, just because it made for “good TV.” Couric spoke to Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night to promote her new memoir, Going There, and she was once again questioned over her decision to omit Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s criticism for national anthem-kneelers. Addressing her editorial decision-making at the time, Couric said the late Justice’s comments “bothered me” enough that she included it in the book because she felt the interview could’ve been handled better in retrospect. “What I regret is that i didn’t ask a follow-up question and, ultimately, that I didn’t include it even after [Ginsburg’s aides] said she misspoke, she doesn’t really understand the intent of this action,” Couric said. “I think what I was trying to say is we all make judgment calls.

What could or should happen the next time there is civil unrest following a police-involved death? Minneapolis voters could have had the answers to these critically important questions before the Nov. 2 city elections. They do not, however, because they still do not have a comprehensive, independent after-action report. This is the story of how the after-action report on my and the city’s response to the 2015 occupation of the Fourth Police Precinct grounds after the death of Jamar Clark at the hands of Officers Dustin Schwarze and Mark Ringgenberg came to be. This is also me asking the questions: Why didn’t Mayor Jacob Frey insist on an after-action report of his own as soon as possible after the death of George Floyd, and why is it that Minneapolis voters still don’t have it before the election next week so they can be fully informed when they vote for...

    NEW YORK -- With computer-generated imagery, it seems the sky's the limit in the magic Hollywood can produce: elaborate dystopian universes. Trips to outer space, for those neither astronauts nor billionaires. Immersive journeys to the future, or back to bygone eras.But as a shocked and saddened industry was reminded this week, many productions still use guns - real guns - when filming. And despite rules and regulations, people can get killed, as happened last week when Alec Baldwin fatally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins after he was handed a weapon and told it was safe.The tragedy has led some in Hollywood, along with incredulous observers, to ask: Why are real guns ever used on set, when computers can create gunshots in post-production? Isn't even the smallest risk unacceptable?For Alexi Hawley, it is. "Any risk is too much risk," the executive producer of ABC's police drama "The Rookie" announced in a staff memo Friday, saying the events in New Mexico had "shaken us all."There "will be no more 'live' weapons on the show," he wrote in a note, first reported by The...

    GETTING Brits into jobs must be at the heart of Wednesday’s Budget. Rishi Sunak’s £3billion investment in skills and training is a good place to start. 3Boris Johnson must focus on joined-up thinking across GovernmentCredit: AP The cash is earmarked to spread more opportunity for over-16s and ultimately help plug the staffing crisis and boost our Covid-ravaged economy. It is vital that the Chancellor funnels whatever cash he can into filling Britain’s 1.1 million vacancies. But it is also crucial to ensure striving Brits are not discouraged by the crazy structure of our welfare system. We have highlighted the case of a single mum from Sunderland who falls into the benefits trap if she takes a better- paid job or works more hours. Because she is on Universal Credit, as soon as she earns more than £293 a month from her employers the Government takes 63 pence of every pound she gets from benefits. What kind of employment incentive is that? The system badly needs reforming so that the two million who claim this benefit are rewarded for working, not...
    A WOMAN who suffers from a low sex drive has revealed that she lets her husband, John, 40, have sex with other women – while she refuses to sleep with any men outside her marriage. Swedish model Monica Huldt, 37, believes the unusual set-up not only makes the couple's relationship stronger but says it's also a turn-on and improves their own sex life. 5Monica Huldt revealed she lets her husband have sex with other womenCredit: Jam Press 5Her husband has sex with other women for his OnlyFans pageCredit: Jam Press “I always knew my husband was interested in having a threesome but we’d never really sat down and spoken about doing it seriously,” Monica, who recently hit the headlines for saying she believes more women should adopt a domestic "traditional wife" role at home, told Jam Press. “In Sweden, people don’t really do stuff like that or even talk about it. “On top of that I was raised a Catholic so sex was super taboo at home, I wasn't even allowed to date boys growing up. “I trust my husband 100 percent...
    Leslie Bricusse’s sole showbusiness connection was that his grandmother had scrubbed the steps of the Apollo Theatre, opposite Victoria Station. Incredibly, by the time he died yesterday, aged 90, Bricusse was the composer and lyricist for more than 40 blockbuster musicals on stage and screen. He was nominated for ten Oscars, winning two. On the mantelpiece were nine Grammys and four Tonys. The man was an institution, a phenomenon. Like everyone else, I’ve spent my life immersed in his soundtracks: Doctor Dolittle (Talk To The Animals), Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory (Oompa-Loompa), the wonderfully brassy songs for Goldfinger and You Only Live Twice.  Sir Harry Secombe as Pickwick opening his larynx and belting out, ‘If I ruled the world!’ – Bricusse came up with that one, too. Bricusse, with his long-term collaborator, Anthony Newley, was responsible for classic Sixties shows such as Stop The World – I Want To Get Off and The Roar Of The Greasepaint – The Smell Of The Crowd.  Their songs were splashy, raunchy hits – and continue to be. Feeling Good, from the latter...
