The beginning of Jack and Joe Gould's lives wasn't easy. When their mom, Sarah Gould, was 23 weeks pregnant, she was diagnosed with a rare disorder that affected the blood flow to each of her identical twins. The procedure that would save their lives also increased the odds that the boys would be born early. Jack and Joe spent three months in what is now Sanford Children's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, hooked up to various tubes and monitors.

ST. PAUL - Joan Peterson said Minnesota lawmakers must act to control gun violence like the shooting that killed her sister in the Twin Cities 13 years ago.

The big game season for walleye, northern pike and bass is close to closure. After Feb. 24, intentionally attempting to catch any of those species will be off limits.

Since walleyes are preparing for reproduction that will take place in about 75 days, give or take a week, they are currently feeding heavily, especially the large females, attempting to support their development of eggs.
