    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Pat Kessler is known for his tough questions. He’s covered Minnesota politics for decades, but now he’s retiring. So, we wanted to do a Reality Check on his career with WCCO. Let’s see what you know about Pat Kessler. “I think Pat Kessler is one of the great journalists of our day,” said former Minnesota governor and Republican presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty. While Kessler has reported for years on the major political events of the day, that’s not the whole story. “I’ve covered everything from puppy births, to flower shows, to city council meetings, historic floods and tornadoes, and blizzards…especially blizzards,” he said. Upon being hired by WCCO-TV in 1984, Kessler covered general assignments, including Prince’s “Purple Rain” tour at the St. Paul Civic Center. Kessler’s fascination with politics began with the turbulence of the 1960s, with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the unfolding of the Civil Rights movement. According to Kessler, he’s only been working full-time at the Minnesota State Capitol since 1987. And that’s true. As the...
    LOGAN SQUARE — Neighborhood group Logan Square Preservation has hosted a September house and garden walk for nearly 40 years, giving neighbors a peek inside historical homes along and around Logan Boulevard. But this year, with the coronavirus pandemic, the organization canceled the walk and launched a self-guided history tour that allows residents to learn about neighborhood landmarks and historically significant homes safely and on their own time. The Pillars & Porticos tour, which doubles as a membership drive, launched online this weekend. It is only available to members of Logan Square Preservation. A membership costs $20 annually. Neighbors can pull up the map — on their phone or computer — and travel to any of the 22 curated sites they want to visit. At each site, there are accompanying “stories of those who have built, lived and worked in these places” over the years. Group member Shana Liberman, who helped organize the tour, stressed that while the house and garden walk served as inspiration, the self-guided tour has grown into “so much more.” A group of Logan Square Preservation volunteers spent...

Prove it with this quiz As Supernatural's Sam and Dean Winchester (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) have proven for the past 15 seasons, not everyone can be a hunter.

    Career transitions are equal parts scary and exhilarating. And if transformation is truly what you desire, then there are few reasons not to take a chance. Life is too short not to do what you love. How do I know? Well, I went through a significant career transition. After spending over a decade working for NASA as an electrical engineer, I received my real estate license. Making the radical move from rocket scientist to real estate professional wasn’t an easy transition. There’s no doubt that guiding astronauts on the International Space Station to repair their equipment in space is a far cry from guiding home buyers and sellers on their real estate journeys. What helped me the most was figuring out how to apply the lessons learned in my first career to my blooming real estate career.

    The new series "Fox Nation 101: The Constitution" explains the history and significance of one of America's founding documents: The Constitution. The U.S. Constitution is the world's longest surviving written charter of government, penned in 1787 and ratified in 1788. It was brought about by necessity. "As of the summer of 1787, when the Founders came together in Philadelphia, they understood that we wouldn't survive as a country," explained Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, in the Fox Nation show. LIMITED TIME OFFER, GET YOUR FIRST MONTH OF FOX NATION FOR $0.99 The United States declared independence on July 4, 1776, laying out the reasoning behind the war fought by the people of the original 13 colonies to free themselves from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Now, the new nation had to determine how to govern itself. "The biggest challenge for the Americans was that they no longer had a king. They no longer had a monarch," said Randy Barnett, director of the Georgetown Center for the Constitution. "They had what was known at the time and is still known as a republic, meaning it was a nation...
