Closed out today’s show with a very fun–and insightful–conversation with (and sweet acoustic performance by) legendary music-makers Dave Rave and Craig Teiken. Dave’s back in Minnesota (from NYC, by way of Hamilton, Ontario) to celebrate the release of his latest (and also fantastic) album with his top-notch bandmates, The Governors (recorded at Sparta Sound in beautiful Sparta, MN, and featuring Teiken, Rich Mattson, Chad Mittag, David K. Loy, Germaine Gemberling, Keely Lane, Edie Rae, and Tom Cook). The new album, “Sweet American Music,” was just released today and it’s such a treat to have these guys swing by, debut a couple of new tracks, and perform some classic faves (along with a song just written last week!). Catch them tomorrow night at HiFi Hair & Records in Minneapolis–and back in Minnesota in the spring. My assessment? Sheer pop delight!

Today’s news update – Kids have it down, teachers level varies; Mayor says City “optimistic” about MOM Brands; Armory will go up for sale; Bridgewater and Dundas agree; “Glen Campbell – I’ll Be Me”

KYMN Radio - Wed, 01/28/2015 - 12:02pm

Kids have it down, teachers level varies

Northfield Schools are 18 months into Technology Transformation.  Director of Technology Services Kim Briske talked with the School Board this week about the trends and where Northfield is in the process.  The kids are more sophisticated in their use of iPads while the teachers are at varying levels of expertise.  Superintendent Chris Richardson said the teachers are cautiously optimistic but not totally at ease with the new technology.  This means they’ll be thinking about professional development for the educators.  Other challenges are that not every kid has access to wi-fi outside of the school buildings.

Mayor says City “optimistic” about MOM Brands

Mayor Graham was in studio this morning and commented on the sale of MOM Brands.  He said it was quite a surprise but they’ve been in constant contact with corporate.  He says the City wants to be “at the table” for any discussions and be available to assist in any way necessary.  He added that they’re “optimistic” about the future and it doesn’t have to be “doom and gloom”.  Post Holdings has purchased MOM Brands for $1.15 billion, the sale is expected to close in the 3rd quarter of this year.

Armory will go up for sale

Graham also revealed that the Armory on Division street will be going up for sale.  He got a phone call from Senator Dahle as a heads up that a government contact would be calling to inform the City of their desire to sell the Armory and to give the City the first opportunity to buy it.  Many armories around the state have been upgraded, however, the government has decided NOT to put the funds into our Armory.  Graham added that “when a window closes, a door opens” and it’s a “great opportunity” for development.  It’s very early in the process.  Graham said the “Beyond the Yellow Ribbon” kick off event is still on for March 2nd at the Armory.  His interview is posted online at kymnradio.net.  We’ll have more on the actual meeting in a later newscast.   Graham has also posted a new “Minute with the Mayor” video on the City’s website.

Bridgewater and Dundas agree

The Dundas City Council has been meeting with Bridgewater Township on a more regular basis as they work to iron out issues.  City Administrator John McCarthy said their most recent meeting was about the Railroad spur and the cost of operating the Planning Commission when it acts for the Annexation District.  McCarthy said that Bridgewater has agreed to share costs when it’s not paid for by the developer.  That would include any litigation costs should they occur.  The City has already agreed to absorb the day to day costs.

“Glen Campbell – I’ll Be Me” airs tomorrow

The documentary “Glen Campbell – I’ll Be Me” will air tomorrow evening at 7 o’clock at the Northfield Middle School.  It’s free, however you’re asked to get a ticket through the Northfield Retirement Community or Three Links.  A panel discussion on Alzheimers with experts and family will follow the movie.

Lynn Schoen, Wabasha City Council and frac sand activist who has devoted years to this, tells the House Mining Committee exactly what’s what.

This committee is so skewed, and as Lynn Schoen notes, they are there to represent us. That’s not happening, and it’s the mining industry being given the committee time.

Here’s the whole hearing: Watch live streaming video from uptakemnhouse at livestream.com

Video is acting a little funky, ??

Here’s the Committee emmails to let them know what you think about regulation of silica sand mining and their industry-based focus. They need to hear from a broader spectrum, oh yes, that means YOU:

Rotary Cogwheel | 01.29.2015

Northfield Rotary Club - Wed, 01/28/2015 - 10:53am

Today: Lydia shares her youth exchange experience.

 Birthdays: Rotarians around the globe

Next Week: Tanner Schieck, Schieck Orthodontics (Taylor)

Last Week:

The Northfield Women’s Center is a pregnancy resource clinic located in the Medical Arts Building in downtown Northfield. The non-profit offers pregnancy testing, birth education, life coaching and support to primarily young women and their partners who find themselves with an unplanned pregnancy.

Liz Blanchard, RN, the executive director, said the center’s mission is to help young women make fully informed decisions. Their clients usually fall between the ages of 15 and 24. The center’s services are free.

When confronted with an unplanned pregnancy, Liz said, a teen is often overwhelmed by fear. This can spiral into a despair that does not lend itself to sorting through difficult choices. The women’s center walks with the young women through the decision-making process. Staff does not attempt to make decisions for their clients, Liz emphasized; their aim is to empower them so they can arrive at a solution consonant with their values.

The center offers support groups for young mothers, “earn while you learn” classes, and a Stepping Stone mentoring program. They also network with local social service agencies to better serve their clients. Dads are invited to take advantage of these programs, too.

The center is funded by private donations. Liz extended an invitation for us to visit the center and see what it is all about.


Mini-Classification:

Nancy Amerman said when her first husband died, she understood how important networks of support are for young people. Her children would not benefit as she had from a father’s presence and support.

That’s why Nancy has a passion for the Northfield Women’s Center. It is a place where she can offer hope, support and encouragement to young people who don’t have a strong support network to fall back on.


State of the Club:

Six months into our program year, President Rich declared the state of the club is strong. We have 119 club members, four inbound exchange students, 15 outbound students this year and another 18 next year. Our fundraisers have exceeded expectations. We have elected to donate funds to Save the Depot ($5,000), the Outdoor Musical Playground at Way Park ($15,000) and the Skateboard Coalition ($15,000). We have also committed money to an internationa project in Togo and are considering other projects in Nepal and Ethiopia.

 Going forward, President Rich said we are actively working find more efficient methods of operation and to be more assertive on the public relations front. We also need to identify the next round of service projects to support. If you have ideas, please share them with him or other board members.


Presentation:

Rotary formally presented our $5,000 donation to the Save the Depot Committee. Rob Martin, a club member and a member of Save the Depot Committee, accepted a check on behalf of the committee. He said the depot will be moved sometime this summer.


Guests: Jeanette Frahm (Martin) and Riana Dilley (Lee Dilley)

Scholarship Enhancement: Kurt Larson

Announcements:

— Former Rotarian Gerhard Nygaard passed away at the age of 90 this past Friday. Gerhard served as our club’s secretary for several years and president in 1988-89. His funeral was earlier today at the Northfield Retirement Community.

— Chris Richardson was recently named the 2015 recipient of the Minnesota Association of School Administrators Polaris Leadership Award. The award recognizes Chris for his 38 years of work in educational administration. In 2012, he was named the Minnesota Superintendent of the Year. Congratulations Chris.

— Vicki Dilley is looking for help with the New Generation Exchange Program. We will be hosting two young adult men, both engineers of sorts, who are coming to Northfield for six-week exchange experience. She is looking for people to host them during their visit and for learning opportunities for them while they are here.

— Jean Wakely would like all who do not yet one of our signature yellow Rotary service T-shirts to see her. We would like members to wear these at our fundraiser and service events to promote the club and its mission.

— Betsy Spethmann noted that the Northfield Area United Way was recognized by Rep. John Kline with a North Star Award for the 100 Percent Local music festival it has organized the last two years.

Past Northfield Rotary Club meeting videos on Youtube: NorthfieldRotaryClubVideos

Coming Up:

Feb. 12 — Mary Jo Christofaro and Erica Zweifel, Northfield Solar Project (Zweifel)

Feb. 19 — Denny Hanson, President and CEO of Community Resource Bank, Classification (Weber)

Feb. 26 — Philipy inbound exchange student (Quinnell)
