MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — From terror suspects due in court to Minnesota Wild’s epic loss, here are the four stories to know for Thursday, April 23.
Terror Suspects Due In Court
The four men arrested in Minneapolis accused of trying to join ISIS are due in federal court Thursday morning.
The sister of suspect Guled Omar thinks her brother was set up because of recordings made by an FBI informant.
The informant’s recordings are the government’s strongest evidence against Omar and the others.
Omar was active on social media — talking about leaving for a vacation to California.
Two other Minnesotans were arrested in San Diego.
Many are calling it the worst post-season game ever. The St. Louis Blues killed the Minnesota Wild in Game 4.
Goalie Devan Dubnyk was benched and the Wild lost 6-1.
The Wild now pack up and head back to St. Louis for Game 5 Friday night.
Minnesota will be back at the Xcel Energy Center on Sunday for Game 6.
If needed, Game 7 will be played in St. Louis.
Basilica Block Party
Praise the “loud”! The line-up to this year’s Basilica Block Party will be announced Thursday afternoon at Cities 97’s studio C from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. tonight.
The outdoor concert will feature 19 bands performing July 10 and 11 on the grounds of the Basilica of St. Mary in downtown Minneapolis.
The event began in 1995 as a fundraiser to help pay for structural restoration of the Basilica.
First Lady Compliment
Even the First Lady likes a compliment.
This one came from a little girl at the Boys and Girls Club in D.C. Michelle Obama was asked how old she was — she answered: 51.
Since the first response wasn’t clear, Obama asked for Anaya Brodie to be given a microphone. Brodie said: you’re too young for a 51 year old.
That got her called up on stage and a hug from the first lady!
