DJJD Horse Shoe Hunt 2014 – Clue Four

KYMN Radio - 3 hours 12 min ago

The letters that make up the name of the hiding spot have been scrambled and you will be given 3 letters of the puzzle through a clue each day. The clues will lead you to locations downtown where you must walk to the cipher near the particular location and gather a particular letter as instructed in each clue.

The Purse is $900 this year thanks to cash donations by E&J Photography, US Federal Credit Union, Professional Pride Realty and Bursch Travel.

CLUE FOUR

Location 1. We’re moving right along! I hope you’re having fun exploring our city and sidewalk poems! When I hid away the shoe, I sat down for some Joe. Then I got up with swagger and left down the road. Find the letter located on line 3, word 5 and letter 3.

Location 2. When you arrive at the hiding spot, you can park in the back. Just look for the Gras near a 136 year Landmark that suffered from cracks. Find the letter located on line 4, word 2 and letter 2.

Location 3. And finally this building, you know the one. Just yell to the hunters, go get your guns. Find the letter located on the bottom line, word 6 and letter 2.

CLUE THREE

Location 1. This building recently had something removed from it. This large structure was used extensively when it was a restaurant in the 90’s. Find the letter located on line 1, word 3 and letter 2

Location 2. This spot in the middle of town has always been a popular talker. Grab a snack and take a break. Seating provided by Schjeldahl. Find the letter located on line 1, word 2 and letter 1

Location 3. Bring a net for this one. Built in 1893, this structure replaced that Dampier House which is where Henry Wheeler was positioned during the 1876 raid. Find the letter located on line 4, word 2 and letter 6

CLUE TWO

Location 1. This cipher lays close to the original 1885 YMCA in Northfield but you’ll need to look High, not at the horseshoe up there, but near the prominent half circles to the south. Find the letter located on line 4 of 7, word 2 and letter 1

Location 2. What was your favorite item at the Ideal Cafe? Work as a pair and you’ll find these two circles. Find the letter located on line 1 of 3, word 2 and letter 2

Location 3. Ryan would be lying if he said this would be a piece of cake. Find the letter located on line 2 of 4, word 3 and letter 1

CLUE ONE

Location 1. This building was built the same year “Jesse James Day” began and was the first Medical Arts building in Rice County. Look on the “mural” side and pass each other on the ground. Find the letter located on line 2 of 5, word 1 and letter 3

Location 2. This public building was constructed by money donated by Andrew Carnegiein the winter of 1908. Look at the bottom on Division. Find the letter located on line 1 of 4, word 2 and letter 5

Location 3. Opened in 1877 this Stuart from Dallas was the second of its kind in Northfield. Find the hot letter located on line 1 of 7, word 4 and letter 1

Today’s news update -City suggests 3.5% levy; EDA and HRA levies discussed; Dundas considers 2%

KYMN Radio - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 12:02pm

City suggests 3.5% levy

Right from the start the tax levy was an issue for the Northfield City Council.  Due to the bump in LGA last year, council approved a 0% levy.  This year Finance Director Melanie Schlomann suggested a 3.5% levy.  Along with the levy discussion was the fund balance, which is around  7.75 million and a healthy balance.  Mayor Graham commented that there are many things factored into the formula the City uses to calculate the levy including fund balances from individual areas such as the Park Board.  They were held steady during the recession and some councilors thought they should be given some dollars.  Especially with the new Meadows Park project on their plate.  Ludescher said the City’s rate of inflation is going up faster than the peoples ability to pay.  He says they’re taking discretionary dollars out of the pockets of citizens.  The other problem he said is that too much money in the fund balance works mischief.  “If we don’t have the money we can’t spend it”, he would rather have too little fund balance and bond for what is needed.  He made a reference to the Tiger Trail which Councilor Zweifel took issue with.  City Administrator Haggenmiller will come back September 2nd with 3 options a 0%, 2.8% and 3.5%.  The Council must approve a levy at that time.  It can be lowered from that point but not raised.

EDA and HRA levies discussed

The EDA and HRA gave presentations to the Council as their levies, which are separate from the City’s,  must be approved.  Their maximum is 5.2%.   While Mayor Graham supports the work that both organizations do he was skeptic of their need for more dollars.  They have a fund balance of $1.3 million.  If kept at 0% it would only be $11,000 less than their proposed increase.  Graham wants to keep it at 0%.  He says, if they need more down the road, they can give it to them.  Bottom line “do we hit up taxpayers or do we keep it level?”.  The EDA and HRA levies come from the citizens.  The government may give them a share but it ultimately comes from us.  The Mayor’s interview is posted as is the meeting in several videos on kymnradio.net.

Dundas considers 2%

Dundas is also in the completion stages of the preliminary budget.  They’ll hold one more budget work session that the public is invited to.  Administrator McCarthy says right now, the council is looking at 2%.  McCarthy says that won’t raise taxes if their property values stay the same.  Of course if you’re property value goes up, so will your taxes.  They’ll vote September 9th.

Next Week: Bike Tour Chalk Talk

Last Week:

Prairie’s Edge Humane Society’s ultimate goal is to close shop. Kathy Jasnoch, now in her third year as executive director, says she wishes there would not be a need for a humane society. But for now, there are far too many abandoned pets, and there is work to be done.

The organization recently moved from Faribault, its home of almost 30 years, to Professional Drive in Northfield. It is also shifting its program emphasis from that of a foster care-based, rescue group to one that focuses on animal care and public education. Kathy says they are still housing cats and “small furries,” but dogs are now bypassing the shelter for placement in foster care. It’s less stressful and better for their health, she said.

Prairie’s Edge aims to adopt out healthy, well-behaved animals. They now have a formalized protocol in place for accepting abandoned pets. It is now done by appointment. Owners must bring the animal’s medical records. Each animal receives a health and behavior assessment. Once accepted, the animals are vaccinated, given a computer chip and then offered up for adoption.

Prairie’s Edge is in the middle of a fundraising campaign. Supporters have raised $15,000 toward a goal of $25,000. The organization is funded by modest fees for service, a modest Rice County contribution, grants and fundraisers.

Kathy said individuals or organizations can help Prairie Edge by spreading the word, volunteering, becoming a foster family or contributing money. For more information, go to: http://www.prairiesedgehs.org/.
