Town Hall with Rep. Tom Emmer Draws Large Crowd

SARTELL, Minn. (AP) - Sixth District Congressman's Tom Emmer's town hall went on as planned after the congressman said he would shut down the event if protests or unruly attendees disrupted the conversation.

Attendees Wednesday night pressed Emmer about a number of issues stemming from President Donald Trump's first month in office. The Minnesota residents' questions were centered around health care, immigration and education. The event filled up minutes after police opened the doors at Sartell's City Hall. The crowd was mostly subdued compared to those at other town halls across the nation, though Emmer and the group visibly sparred at times.

Emmer drew vocal criticism when speaking about reforming the Affordable Care Act and Trump's immigration order. Multiple attendees say they were frustrated when they felt that Emmer was dodging audience members' questions.

On Monday, legislation was passed by the Minnesota House for sales of liquor, beer and wine on Sundays.

Deputy Director of Public Affairs Andrew Wagner says the bipartisan vote came down to an 85 to 45 vote. It’s now moving to the state senate for consideration.

Representative Jenifer Loon has pushed the bill for many years. This year, she is the chief author of the bill.

Wagner reports in 2013 the House voted "yes" only 21 times, with every year passing gaining more support of the Sunday sales.

House Speaker Kurt Daudt added “This historic vote brings us one step closer to giving Minnesotans the freedom to buy their favorite beer or wine on any day of the week…”

A St. Cloud man was arrested Sunday morning after running from a car accident near Lake George.

St. Cloud Assistant Police Chief Jeff Oxton says officers responded to an accident just after 7:30 a.m. in the 1100 block of 7th Street South. A small sedan lost control and hit a tree and telephone pole.

The passenger, Paris Samuel Morman, was hurt in the crash and taken to the St. Cloud Hospital.

A witness told officers the driver fled the scene and was running toward Lake George. Officers found the driver and took him to Stearns County Jail. He is identified as 23-year-old Jacob Nhial Elijah.

Elijah refused to give a blood sample to determine his level of intoxication, so officers got a search warrant. Results of the blood draw haven’t been released.

Investigators believe Elijah took the car from people he was visiting without them knowing.

He is facing charges of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, criminal vehicular operation due to the injured passenger, leaving the scene of an accident, and driving after revocation.
