2. The Star Tribune published a story citing: 

"Thor Companies, the Minneapolis-based construction firm and the state’s largest minority-owned company, has run into financial trouble, only months after it celebrated its move into a new North Side headquarters partially funded by Hennepin County. Target Corp., which long has used Thor on store projects and holds a lease on Thor’s office space, has provided millions in assistance to pay subcontractors of Thor and forgiven nearly $300,000 in unpaid rent. On Tuesday, Hennepin County commissioners learned that liens had been placed on a building where Thor is set to transfer parking spaces to the county. Thor’s problems came to light in recent days after St. Paul-based Sunrise Bank, a Thor lender, moved to collect an overdue loan against the company in Ramsey County."

1/18/ 2019, the Star Tribune publish: "Thor Cos. sued by Sunrise Banks for $3 million; receiver sought," citing: "Thor does not have “sufficient liquidity to continue to operate,” and multiple creditors might attempt a “free-for-all” liquidation of the business." Why the lies?" Phone lines will be open at 9:30AM.
