Charley Walters: Vikings’ future is as muddled as ever
The NBA offseason has not even officially begun yet but with the Los Angeles Lakers getting bounced in the first round there has been plenty of offseason coverage. Every offseason we see crazy trade scenarios that don’t make much practical sense get born. Damian Lillard has become the NBA’s latest disgruntled superstar and has thus birthed the crazy Lakers trade scenarios that won’t happen. The speculation surrounding Russell Westbrook and the Los Angeles Lakers is not as crazy as it seems.
All three people who were on the plane died, authorities said. The city of Hermantown identified them as Alyssa Schmidt, 32, of St. Paul, her brother, Matthew Schmidt, 31, of Burnsville, as well as the pilot, Tyler Fretland, 32, also of Burnsville.
The crash left a hole in the home’s roof and brought down a section of its second floor, images from CNN affiliate KBJR showed.
It’s unclear why the plane went down. The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating, the city said.
CNN has reached out to both agencies for comment.
Hermantown is a suburb west of Duluth, on the western tip of Lake Superior.

Two dozen children were among the 36 people shot and slashed to death in an attack that shattered the serenity of the rural township of Uthai Sawan, robbing the small farming community of much of its youngest generation in the blink of an eye.
