$156 million in cocaine and weed seized at sea

The morning’s good narrative.

Air and Marine Operations (AMO) National Air Security Operations Center of the border patrol, P-3 Long Range Tracker and Airborne Early Warning crews partnered with Joint Interagency Task Force-South and federal authorities to stop transnational smuggling of almost six tons of narcotics between April 16 and April 24 in the Eastern Pacific Ocean, denying narcotics traffickers an estimated $156 million in illicit proceeds.

Over an eight-day period, AMO P-3 aircrews conducted detection and sustained tracking operations that led law enforcement partners to detain 15 individuals and seize a total of 7,805 pounds of cocaine and 3,588 pounds of marijuana in the Pacific Source and Transit Zone for illicit drugs.

National Air Security Operations Center P-3 capabilities continue to prove essential to United States Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) Counter Narcotics Operations, coordinated by Joint Interagency Task Force-South (JIATF-S), contributing to an increased law enforcement presence in narcotics transit zones. This partnership bolsters the effectiveness of U.S. and international law enforcement by sharing information and intelligence to increase interdictions. Key SOUTHCOM partners have been involved in over 60 percent of drug disruptions since April 2020.

AMO has two P-3 National Air Security Operations Centers located in Jacksonville, FL and Corpus Christi, TX. These P-3 aircraft operate throughout North, Central and South America in defense of the borders of the United States and to prevent attempts to smuggle persons or contraband.

Biden appoints Thomas Nides as ambassador to Israel

WASHINGTON – US President Joe Biden announced on Tuesday that he would appoint Thomas Nides as the next ambassador to Israel. Nides’ name emerged as a likely ambassador in April.

Nides is currently the Managing Director and Vice Chairman of Morgan Stanley, working with global clients as well as external and government affairs. He was previously Assistant Secretary of State for Management and Resources under Hillary Clinton from 2011 to 2013. In January 2013, he also received the US Secretary of State’s Distinguished Service Award.

“Thomas Nides is a distinguished civil servant and business leader,” read a White House statement. “Nides was Chief of Staff to US Trade Representative Micky Kantor, was Senior Advisor to House Speaker Thomas S. Foley, and previously House Majority Whip Tony Coelho,” the announcement said. “He currently serves on the boards of the Partnership for Public Service, the International Rescue Committee, the Atlantic Council and the Urban Alliance Foundation, and is currently the Managing Director and Vice Chairman of Morgan Stanley. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and a past chairman of the Woodrow Wilson Center, appointed by President Obama. Nides received his BA from the University of Minnesota. He has received the Secretary of State’s Distinguished Service Award. “

Nides was born into a Jewish family in Duluth, Minnesota. He began his career on Capitol Hill in a variety of positions including Assistant to the Majority Leader of the House of Representatives and Executive Assistant to the Speaker of the House of Representatives. He later served as chief of staff for several members of Congress for a decade before moving to banking in 1996.

According to his biography on the State Department’s website, prior to joining Morgan Stanley, Nides served as global President and CEO of Burson-Marsteller and CEO of Credit Suisse First Boston, the investment banking division of the Zurich-based Credit Suisse Group.

Biden announced eight more ambassadors on Tuesday, including Julianne Smith as ambassador to NATO and Ken Salazar as ambassador to Mexico.

St. Cloud State men's hockey coach Larson gets 7-year contract extension

Brett Larson guided the St. Cloud State men’s hockey team to its first NCAA Division I championship game appearance in April, and on Tuesday the third-year Huskies coach received a reward: a seven-year contract extension through the 2027-18 season.

“Since his arrival at St. Cloud State and very first meeting with the team, Coach Larson has demonstrated an impressive capacity for leadership and coaching,” athletic director Heather Weems said in a statement. “Brett’s commitment to a positive program culture marked by continuous development, selfless play, relentless work ethic, and overall excellence provides an atmosphere in which players thrive. … I couldn’t be more excited about the trajectory of our program and continued presence amongst the nation’s elite men’s hockey programs under Coach Larson’s leadership.”

Financial terms of the contract were not announced.

A Duluth native and former Minnesota Duluth assistant, Larson, 48, has guided the Huskies to a 63-32-9 overall record, including 20-11 in 2020-21, when they advanced to the second Frozen Four appearance in school history. St. Cloud State defeated Boston University and Boston College in the NCAA Northeast Regional before edging Minnesota State Mankato 5-4 in a thrilling national semifinal in Pittsburgh. The Huskies fell 5-0 to Massachusetts in the title game.

“I want to thank Heather Weems for in me and giving me this opportunity three years ago, as well as her passionate support of Husky Athletics,” Larson said in a statement. “I’ve been fortunate to be surrounded by great people here at SCSU. The administration, our players, our staff, our alumni and our fans make this such a special place. I’m proud to be a Husky and am looking forward to continuing our work to make our school, community, alumni and fans proud of Husky Hockey!”

Larson took over as Huskies coach following the 2017-18 season when Bob Motzko left the Granite City to coach Minnesota. Larson’s first Huskies squad posted a 30-6-3 record and won the NCHC regular-season title but fell to American International in the first round of the NCAA tournament. In 2019-20 after heavy personnel losses, St. Cloud State went 13-15-6 in a season shortened by the coronavirus pandemic.

The outlook for the 2021-22 Huskies is strong, with five seniors from this past season – forwards Easton Brodzinski and Kevin Fitzgerald, defensemen Seamus Donohue and Luke Jaycox, and goalie David Hrenak – returning for another year granted by the NCAA because of COVID-19.

St. Cloud State men's hockey coach Larson gets 7-year contract extension

Brett Larson guided the St. Cloud State men’s hockey team to its first NCAA Division I championship game appearance in April, and on Tuesday the third-year Huskies coach received a reward: a seven-year contract extension through the 2027-18 season.

“Since his arrival at St. Cloud State and very first meeting with the team, Coach Larson has demonstrated an impressive capacity for leadership and coaching,” athletic director Heather Weems said in a statement. “Brett’s commitment to a positive program culture marked by continuous development, selfless play, relentless work ethic, and overall excellence provides an atmosphere in which players thrive. … I couldn’t be more excited about the trajectory of our program and continued presence amongst the nation’s elite men’s hockey programs under Coach Larson’s leadership.”

Financial terms of the contract were not announced.

A Duluth native and former Minnesota Duluth assistant, Larson, 48, has guided the Huskies to a 63-32-9 overall record, including 20-11 in 2020-21, when they advanced to the second Frozen Four appearance in school history. St. Cloud State defeated Boston University and Boston College in the NCAA Northeast Regional before edging Minnesota State Mankato 5-4 in a thrilling national semifinal in Pittsburgh. The Huskies fell 5-0 to Massachusetts in the title game.

“I want to thank Heather Weems for in me and giving me this opportunity three years ago, as well as her passionate support of Husky Athletics,” Larson said in a statement. “I’ve been fortunate to be surrounded by great people here at SCSU. The administration, our players, our staff, our alumni and our fans make this such a special place. I’m proud to be a Husky and am looking forward to continuing our work to make our school, community, alumni and fans proud of Husky Hockey!”

Larson took over as Huskies coach following the 2017-18 season when Bob Motzko left the Granite City to coach Minnesota. Larson’s first Huskies squad posted a 30-6-3 record and won the NCHC regular-season title but fell to American International in the first round of the NCAA tournament. In 2019-20 after heavy personnel losses, St. Cloud State went 13-15-6 in a season shortened by the coronavirus pandemic.

The outlook for the 2021-22 Huskies is strong, with five seniors from this past season – forwards Easton Brodzinski and Kevin Fitzgerald, defensemen Seamus Donohue and Luke Jaycox, and goalie David Hrenak – returning for another year granted by the NCAA because of COVID-19.

Minnesota State Mankato’s students are among the more than 1,500 U.S. students from 467 colleges and universities who received scholarships to study or do an internship abroad in 96 countries through late 2022.

Among the three Minnesota State Mankato students who will study or do an internship abroad in the upcoming academic year Emmah Mardaus, Megan Schmidt and Morgan Rud. A fourth student in Minnesota State Mankato, Grace Gagnon, also received a Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship, but chose not to study or graduate abroad as part of that scholarship program.

Mardaus (Pictured right), a junior business student from Stillwater, Minnesota and a 2019 White Bear Lake High School – South Campus graduate, will be an exchange student at the University of Seoul for the 2021-22 academic year.

“I will be traveling to Seoul, South Korea for the 2021-2022 school year to build a stronger connection with my heritage while making my education a priority,” Mardaus wrote. “Receiving the Gilman Scholarship has eased many of my financial constraints so that I can fully enjoy studying abroad in Korea without any financial stress.”

Schmidt, a junior studying anthropology and Scandinavian studies, is from Brainerd, Minnesota, and graduated from Brainerd High School in 2011. Schmidt will spend the academic year 2021-22 as an exchange student at Umeå University in Umeå, Sweden.

“The Gilman Fellowship provides an incredible opportunity to experience a new culture and grow through the formation of the exchange program,” wrote Schmidt. “I chose Umeå University as my exchange program because it offers the perfect mix of training for my two majors, Anthropology and Scandinavian Studies. Studying in Sweden will give me the insight I need to specialize in Swedish culture, learn the language and become a more knowledgeable cultural anthropologist. “

Rud (Right picture), a Junior Pre-Dental Major, is from Mondovi, Wisconsin and is a 2019 graduate of Mondovi High School. Rud will be spending the spring semester of 2022 in Khon Kaen, Thailand through the University Studies Abroad Consortium (USAC) .

“The Gilman Scholarship means a lot to me not only financially, it also enables me to pursue many other opportunities abroad,” wrote Rud. “I decided to take part in the USAC program in Thailand because it corresponds to my location and study interests. I especially love Thai food, but also the people, the culture and the traditions. To top it off, the courses on offer seem so interesting to me and are counted towards my main subjects. “

The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program, according to its website, “enables students with limited financial resources to study or do an internship abroad and teach them skills that are critical to our national security and economic prosperity.”

The program is administered by the Institute of International Education (IIE). The full list of students selected for Gilman Scholarships, including the students’ home state, university, and host country, is available on the website.

Minnesota State Mankato has 15 Gilman Fellows as of 2013.

Additional information on educational opportunities abroad is available through the Minnesota State Mankato’s Center for Global Engagement, and those interested in additional information can email ipo@mnsu.edu or call 507-389-1341 Anna Ochs, Assistant Director.

Additional information on scholarship opportunities is available through the Minnesota State Mankato Office of University Fellowships. Those interested in more information can contact Kristen Cvancara, Director, by email at Fellowships@mnsu.edu or by phone at 507-389-5191.

Minnesota State Mankato, a comprehensive university with 14,604 students, is part of the Minnesota State System, which includes 30 colleges and seven universities.

Batterer intervention programs aim to curb further abuse

According to the University of Kentucky’s Center for Research on Violence against Women, which […]

Batterer intervention programs aim to curb further abuse

Last year, Northwest Montana began fighting domestic violence with a proposal to protect victims and enroll three victim attorneys in Flathead County.

But resources targeting domestic violence perpetrators are lagging behind, and relapses and limited effectiveness plague most perpetrator intervention programs.

According to the University of Kentucky’s Center for Research on Violence against Women, which estimates that “treatment prevents future violence only about 5% more than arrest alone.”

Lundy Bancroft, a pioneer in the field, writes in his book Why Does He Do That: “Even the very best counselors give the same report: It is more common for abusers to stay the same or get worse than they are, the kind of making changes that improve the quality of the lives of their partners and children. “

BATTERER INTERVENTION Programming for the region has stagnated since its inception in the 1980s.

Kalispell consultant John Buttram brought the first such course to Kalispell more than three decades ago. He received training in Duluth, Minnesota, which, along with Boston, was the incubator for the country’s first thug intervention programs.

Similar to Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, thug intervention programs across the country have become the de rigueur for treating domestic violence perpetrators. Programs typically include small groups of offenders – mostly men – who attend weekly group sessions led by a specialist facilitator. Sessions often focus specifically on violent and controlling behavior that may not be addressed in therapy settings where domestic violence is not a focus – in situations such as anger management, couples therapy, or addiction counseling.

In Montana, those convicted of assaulting partners or family members (PFMA) are required to spend 40 hours of counseling. But Montana law does not currently require perpetrators to participate in a designated thug attack program if such an option is not available locally.

In 2018, the Montana Board of Crime Control set out to standardize the state’s response to domestic violence with a list of statewide standards for racket intervention programs.

“I thought it was great,” said Buttram, who was asked to review the standards after the State Board created them. Two years later, however, these standards have not gone very far beyond the confines of the papers in which they are anchored, and according to Buttram, he has not heard a word about them since.

IT SEEMS Having little oversight over the implementation of the standards, leaving a patchwork of responses to domestic violence in Montana’s communities.

Government-funded programs that would fall under the guidelines of the Montana Board of Crime Control are generally underserved or non-existent in some counties.

Flathead County comes closest to board guidelines of most Northwest Montana counties. In Kalispell there are two different intervention programs, each with its own mandate.

One is run by Buttram, mostly for people convicted of PFMA attacks. He teaches two courses on a rolling basis with approximately 12 men in each class.

A PFMA crime may be convicted under Montana law for “causing bodily harm to a partner or family member” willfully, knowingly, or negligently. Convicted attackers – and occasional volunteers – go through what Buttram describes as the “slow process of trying to encourage accountability”.

Even after decades of refinement, programs like Buttram’s don’t see overwhelmingly positive results.

“It’s so hard to change even if someone wants to, and most don’t,” said Buttram.

TIME IS another major obstacle to the success of these programs.

PFMA fees require 40 hours of counseling, which typically include one-hour courses weekly for about a year. Less than outstanding participants take longer to complete their 40 hours, but the maximum penalty for a PFMA offense is one year, so many offenders suspend their sentence before finishing their course.

Nor is there any guarantee that those who complete the required 40 hours will be better off than their classmates. Many domestic violence advocates believe that it takes well over a year to make significant progress on abusive behavior; Bancroft advises for around two years.

That schedule is still tight, however, as even longtime experts like Buttram say there is no effective way to predict whether an abuser will reoffend after treatment.

“There is no single assessment that can predict whether someone will become violent,” he said. “No pen-and-paper test will say. It’s not something you can see. “

The best he can do, Buttram said, is give them 40 [hours] and hope for the best. And when they get arrested again, you know they need more. “

THE OTHER An option in Kalispell is Turning Point, a Faith Covenant Presbyterian Church action program.

Christian ministry takes a biblical approach to the traditional model of abuse treatment.

It is part of a multi-pronged effort by Faith Covenant to address domestic violence in the community; The church also offers The Refuge, a support group for women, and Refuge Kids for children with domestic violence.

Turning Point was launched in 2013. Since then, more than 100 men have participated in the group, but fewer have seen them through to completion.

Unlike Buttram’s courses, Turning Point is not required by law, and the program does not receive government certification or funding. In this way, Turning Point serves a slightly different population than the typical customers in Buttram’s court-ordered classes.

“Everyone is welcome to come,” remarked Rev. Lloyd Pierson of Faith Covenant, but the religious element is central to the turning point approach.

At Turning Point, most of the participants were not arrested. Turning Point serves as a kind of net to trap domestic abusers who, in the eyes of the Montana judicial system, have not yet crossed or never will cross the line of illegal abuse.

“The problem with abuse is that so much is taking place below the legal limit,” said Pierson. “It’s still abuse.”

Another benefit of Turning Point is that the program is free, while offenders in court-ordered classes are hired by the state to pay the cost of participation.

Even so, Pierson and his team still face many of the same limitations that hinder secular programs.

“Nobody has great results,” emphasized Pierson. “That can be very daunting.”

At Turning Point there is a particular risk of dropping out, as there is no legal obligation for participants to keep them in the program. Pierson estimates that about 20% of men who start the program make it through 40 weeks.

And that’s basically why Pierson keeps the program alive, as there is hardly anyone else in the area who does specific work for thugs interventions.

PRACTICES WORK on the rehabilitation of domestic violence perpetrators say Northwest Montana does not meet state standards for the treatment of domestic violence abusers. According to the provider, one way to fix the problem would be through better training.

Buttram and Pierson particularly stressed the need for more training specifically related to domestic violence, although Buttram said he did not know where to lead anyone who might be interested in following in his footsteps.

Pierson said most church leaders are trained in other forms of therapy, such as family counseling. In his view, this misguided approach to domestic violence “actually makes it worse”. To address this training deficit, Refuge Ministries plans to offer public training this fall.

Aside from formal changes, providers indicated that community efforts could have a huge impact on their work. As their advocates readily admitted, even the best funded and highest quality intervention programs have serious limitations. Instead, a better intervention could be prevention through increased community awareness of domestic violence.

Pierson said there is still a lot of work to be done to realize that domestic abuse can occur in any household.

“It’s found in every class of society … Abuse knows no borders,” said Pierson.

Buttram agreed. “People think of a picture” of a domestic violence perpetrator, he said, but his clients go way beyond any particular stereotype. “Most of these guys are just 10 or 12 men who happened to be dragged off the street.”

Spectators could also play a bigger role in interventions, stressed Buttram.

“It’s an old thing, we don’t want to get involved in anyone’s marriage or relationship,” he said.

The victim of domestic violence is rarely the one who manages to find a partner for a program like Buttram’s. He said a large number of his clients have been convicted because a friend, family member or neighbor reported their behavior to law enforcement.

“It’s good where we can help,” he says.

Get help: If you have been exposed to domestic violence or know someone who is exposed to domestic abuse, call the Abbie Shelter 24-hour hotline at 406-752-7273 or the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE.

Honkers' Bullpen fights St. Cloud again

He tapped a single just behind the outstretched glove of Mankato MoonDog’s second baseman, Evan Berkey, a former honker, to put Rochester on. Cruz’s timely strike was one of two punctual blows to the Honkers’ redesigned line-up, who did just enough to help Rochester snap up a two-game skid and beat Mankato 4-3 at Mayo Field on Monday.

JJ Cruz

“We’re not going to drive it too high or too low,” said Rochester manager Paul Weidner. “We played flawless baseball tonight, our pitchers filled it up and our hitters started to get around.”

For the first game of his team after a four-day break, Weidner made his debut with a new stroke order. Eight of the Honkers’ nine starters – Mike Bolton Jr. was the only returnee – saw their first game action this summer after arriving over the weekend replacing departing regulars like Cam Thompson and Marco Castillo.

As expected, much of the night was an up and down for this group as they began to get used to their new home. Rochester (5-6) stranded 10 runners on the base and only managed two runs through six innings. But one of the newcomers made a name for himself early on.

With a runner in the first inning and an out in the fourth inning, catcher Hank Bard shot a two-run shot from the scoreboard in right midfield. A solo homer from MoonDogs right fielder Adam Fogel followed in the upper half of the frame, giving the Honkers a 2-1 lead.

“I saw that (Mankato right-handed Jonathan Clark) once got up on the fastball, he was trying to get you forward with something soft,” said Bard. “I hit the pitch and it was there.”

That fourth inning was the last for Clark, who also made his Northwoods League season debut. He only allowed two runs and four hits, while cutting six and walking four.

Clark was surpassed by Rochester’s Brendan Knoll, who made his second solid appearance. The right-handed Kasson Mantorville graduate allowed only three hits and one run in 5 hit innings, while he struck five and walked two.

But with the rowdy pitching team from the Honkers putting together their second quality game in a row, the offensive was calm for much of the evening. And in the seventh, the MoonDogs pounced.

Dustin Demeter hit a double in a deep right field and a slight bobble from Jack Colette got Berkey scoring from the start to tie the game 2-2. Demeter then scored on a wild pitch from Patrick Williams and sent Mankato (9-6) back into the lead.

But it wasn’t long before Rochester’s newcomers replied again.

A one-out single and a double earned Jason Swan two points, who struck a victim fly in the right field to tie the competition 3-3. And Cruz’s single got the Honkers rolling for good.

“I knew he was having a hard time finding the hit zone so I just tried to wait in a good place,” said Cruz.

Rochester then used some fine handwork to seal his victory. The MoonDogs got runner-up in eighth place with two infield singles, and Jack Costello’s Line Drive seemed destined to bring in at least one.

Miguel Santos

But Honker’s shortstop Miguel Santos jumped and grabbed the screamers, doubling up a runner to quell the threat.

And the strong defense against the newcomers continued in ninth place. Santos grabbed another liner. Swan went back and picked up a pop-up. And Colette caught one last fly on the wall to secure victory for the redesigned Rochester.

“When the games are so clean and we can keep up with them, you build such a successful season,” said Weidner.

The Honkers will host Mankato (9-6) on Tuesday at 6:35 p.m. at Mayo Field.
