GOP’s Zellers Won’t Run For Re-Election To House

Republican Kurt Zellers, a former House speaker now running for governor, will not run for another term in the House. Zellers announced his decision Monday.

Body shops are a busy place to be after that first major snow and ice combination of the year. They’re busy now, and it will likely stay that way until spring. Bob and Carl’s Auto Body and Glass in Osseo looks like a car infirmary, with broken headlights, missing taillights and everything in between. Tony Smith, co-owner at Bob & Carl’s, says the work is piling up. “Still spinning out and we’re still getting work,” Smith said. “Cars are being towed in.”
