State high court says Virginia Tech not negligent in 2007 massacre
Yahoo News - over 3 years
(Reuters) - Virginia's Supreme Court on Thursday overturned a jury decision that found Virginia Tech University negligent in the 2007 massacre at the school in which 32 people were killed. A Montgomery County Circuit Court jury found last year that the state university had been slow to issue a campus warning as the shooting spree unfolded. The trial judge had instructed the jury that there was "special relationship" between the school and slain students Julia Pryde and Erin Peterson, since the women were "business invitees" of the university. In rejecting the decision, the Supreme Court said that "even if there was a special relationship between the Commonwealth and students of Virginia Tech ... there was no duty for the Commonwealth to warn students about the potential for criminal acts by third parties." The jury had ruled that the families of Pryde and Peterson should be awarded $4 million each.

Eric Peterson: What Detroit Should Learn From NYC's Near-Bankruptcy
Huffington Post - over 3 years
A few years ago Patti Smith, the scion of New York City's downtown arts scene, had a message for today's young artists: New York is dead to you. The chaotic and troubled city that drew her generation to its tough streets seems to now only spread out its welcome mat to bankers or tech impresarios or tech blog editors. Her suggestion? Move to Detroit. She hardly had to shout: Recent years had already seen an influx of bright young things to the Motor City, allured by cheap rents and empty factories in which to realize their artisanal pickle lines. Last week, when Detroit filed for Chapter 9, it cemented a more pressing similarity with the 1970s New York City that drew Patti Smith's cohort. Detroit's bankruptcy, as it has been oft-remarked, is the largest municipal one of its kind. What has been more overlooked, however, is that this is only true because in 1975, New York City very nearly went down the same path, only before it did not. Is Detroit in 2013 the New York City of ...

Area soldiers begin to come home
Hometown Source - almost 5 years
The weather was chilly and windy, but the reception several area soldiers received was bright and warm, Wednesday. Over the next three weeks, soldiers returning home from deployment will be dropped off in areas close to home in what Lt. Blake St. Sauver called a “decentralized process.” This, he said, allows soldiers to be dropped off closer to home instead of several hours from home, making it easier on the soldier and on their families. Pictured above at left is Diane Petersen, left, of Elmdale as she welcomed her son, Sgt. Eric Petersen, who left for his second deployment in June 2011, with the I94CAV C-Troop out of Duluth. Petersen was also deployed in the first brigade deployment from 2005 – 2007, 22 months. Polly Nolan, left, Petersen’s girlfriend, greeted him as well. in a more subdued fashion, Sgt. Christopher Pink of Little Falls, left, also with the I94CAV C-Troop, was greeted after his third deployment by his cousin, Sgt. Denny Pink. Christopher and Denny were t ...
