He could play the consummate smiling, scary, borderline homicidal dude like nobody else. Check out his role as Melanie Griffith's extremely unhappy ex-boyfriend in "Something Wild." He puts a fright in lefty Jeff Daniels like nobody's business.

A St. Paul artist is making her mark and making history in Northfield. Artist Lori Greene created a mural for the Northfield City Council Chambers. The piece is called “The River Connects Us.” The mural shows different elements of Northfield, its river, trees, and people who aren’t always represented.

Minnesota could become a destination for abortion services for women from other states if the U.S. Supreme Court throws out the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, and the state's abortion providers said Tuesday that they're preparing for the anticipated surge. That's because abortion would remain legal, at least for now, under a 1995 Minnesota Supreme Court ruling known as Doe v. Gomez, which effectively established a right to abortion under the state constitution, said Laura Hermer, a professor at the Mitchell Hamline School of Law.
