U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann and her challenger, Jim Graves, tangled Tuesday on bridges, budgets and retiree programs in their first debate.
Graves, a DFLer and St. Cloud hotel executive, was on offense for much of the debate, which was staged at River’s Edge Convention Center and moderated by St. Cloud Area Chamber of Commerce President Teresa Bohnen.
It was the first of three debates before the Nov. 6 election pitting Graves against the third-term Bachmann, who’s less than a year removed from a run for the Republican presidential nomination. St Cloud Times

Time away from the spotlight can be a bad thing.
But for Chrisette Michele, it was a necessary thing. Without the break, there is a strong possibility she wouldn’t be sitting in her Williamsburg apartment on a crisp morning, excitedly talking about her brand new album, Better.
To say the album title is fitting would be an understatement. Chrisette is giddy and proud to share the name of her fourth album with anyone who asks if only because she is a living embodiment of the word. “I’ve sang a lot of broken-hearted love songs because I had a broken heart from love,” says Chrisette. “I began to write a little bit darker. And for me, dark just means a song that doesn’t have a happy ending.”
On Better, even when Chrisette is laying her heart out on a table, she sounds confident and composed. Whether it’s the emotional Prince-like balladry of “You Mean That Much To Me” or the stern warning of “Snow,” Chrisette sounds independent and resolute. Even on “Soopa” a song where she explains to her lover that she won’t always be the perfect woman, Chrisette isn’t apologizing for her flaws as much she’s telling him, take it or leave it, and if you leave it, that’s okay.
