COLLEGEVILLE, Minn. — Family and friends are still searching for Josh Guimond, the St. John’s University student who was reported missing Nov. 10, 2002.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension released an age-enhanced photo of Guimond, who is from Maple Lake, Minn., to bring renewed awareness to his case as he’s been missing 11 years this month. Today, he would be  31 years old.

Guimond was last seen leaving a party at a friend’s apartment on the north end of campus over ten years ago — no one knows what happened on the walk  back to his on-campus apartment in the St. Maur House. According to family and  friends, it’s very unusual for him to not let anyone know of his whereabouts. His car was found on campus.

The BCA said Guimond stands 5’11”, 160 pounds with blonde hair and blue eyes. He has a 4-inch vertical scar on his shoulder and was last seen wearing blue jeans and a gray St. John’s sweatshirt.

Anyone with information regarding Guimond’s whereabouts is asked to call the Stearns County sheriff’s office at 320-251-4240 or the BCA Tip Line at  1-877-996-6222.

So Far This Year, ‘Nice’ Is Not-So-Good


Rand Paul

By Linton Weeks

Excerpt

… “We already know from history what happens when a people’s sense of national potency is shaken and they face economic hardship,” says Aubrey Immelman, a political psychologist and politician. “That’s what happened in Germany after its humiliating defeat in World War I and painful war reparations exacted by the victors, followed by the Great Depression.”

Immelman, an associate professor of psychology at St. John’s University and the College of St. Benedict in St. Cloud, Minn., ran unsuccessfully against Rep. Michele Bachmann in the Republican primary of 2008. He plans to run against her again this year as an independent.

Immelman continues his history lesson. “Fast forward to the United States in 2001 and the attacks of 9/11, which shook our sense of impregnability, and then getting bogged down for nearly a decade in two wars we can’t seem to win — in the classic sense of a quick and decisive victory. And on top of that, the biggest economic downturn since the Great Depression. In short, you have a recipe for lashing out in anger.” …

MN-06: Who is ‘The Third Man’?

One-year retrospective: One year ago today, I reported speculation that Tarryl Clark, assistant majority leader in the Minnesota state senate, would join the race for the Democratic endorsement to run against Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) in the 2010 general election for U.S. House of Representatives in Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District.
