Today in the ArtZany! Radio studio Paula Granquist welcomes theater director Rachel Haider and artists Todd Carlson and Nancy Purbeck from the premiere production of Tippecanoe and Tyler Too. This play is a new historical musical comedy about the events of the 1840 presidential campaign.

Tippecanoe and Tyler Too: a new historical musical comedy
Premiere Production Performed in Northfield and Lakeville
written and composed by W. Watts Biggers, music arranged by Jon Ripley O’Brien
Political races are full of intriguing characters who envelope our world through advertising. Political ads seem to be never-ending. But when did this all begin and who was involved?

The new family-friendly, high-energy musical comedy, Tippecanoe and Tyler Too, answers that question in an intriguing and entertaining way. The story revolves around important historical characters like Daniel Webster, John Tyler, William Henry Harrison, Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren and Henry Clay. The play takes a fictional look at the very real incidents surrounding the 1840 presidential campaign and the seating of our 9th and 10th US Presidents. This presidential campaign was the first time that presidential candidates were treated as products.

Tippecanoe and Tyler Too will play
one weekend in Northfield and one weekend in Lakeville.

Today’s news update – Man with pot pursued by police now facing felony; HRA outlines their 2015 preliminary budget; Madigan rides into the sunset… ; DJJD horseshoe found

Thu, 08/28/2014 - 12:02pm

Man with pot pursued by police now facing felony

Another high speed chase in Faribault leads to multiple charges for a Lonsdale man.  On Tuesday 22 year old Joseph Eric Corradini was clocked at 82 mph on Lyndale Avenue which is posted at 45.  Faribault patrol activated their lights and took chase.  According to the criminal complaint Corradini went through a red light at 30th street, the officer was traveling at 105 mph to keep up.  He followed Corradini for over 3.5 miles until he pulled over after turning onto Bagley Avenue and turning off his headlights.  The officer told Corradini to show his hands and get out of the vehicle.  He yelled that he was trying to get his pregnant girlfriend to the hospital, repeating the story several times.  The girlfriend admitted that wasn’t true.  Corradini later told police that he knew he was being pursued and that he should’ve pulled over but he had marijuana in the vehicle.  He’s charged with fleeing a peace officer which is a felony with up to 3 years in prison.  All the other charges are misdemeanors or less.  Reckless driving could get Corradini up to 90 days in jail, the other charges for pot possession and paraphernalia are only fines.  Bottom line – don’t run.

HRA outlines their 2015 preliminary budget

Community Development Coordinator Michele Merxbauer gave a report on the HRA budget to Council this week.  She explained that between the $218,000 they’ll receive from taxes, investments and rental property income the HRA’s 2015 revenue is estimated at $271,479.  The HRA isn’t asking for an increase but because property values are going up, they will be getting more dollars on the same rate they have levied for the past 5 years.  HRA Chair Dayna Norvold went through the programs that the HRA has been involved in.  She told council that “it’s important to know that 30% of Northfield residents earn less than $35,000.  She said while we have great non-profits in town and a good relationship with Three Rivers, the City would still not be able to provide programs like street assessment help, neighborhood revitalization and low income housing without the HRA.  They are also working with the EDA on ways to create workforce housing.  Another initiative is financial literacy.  They don’t want to provide “a handout but rather equip people to move themselves forward”.  The HRA will hold a workforce summit in November with appropriate entities.  Council will be voting on the City tax levy next Tuesday.

Madigan rides into the sunset…

It was a packed open house at City Hall as dozens came to say goodbye and good luck to retiring City Administrator Tim Madigan yesterday.  He said he’s really appreciated his time in Northfield.  It’s been an exciting challenge.  “The most rewarding city he’s worked with” in terms of the people, the projects and issues.  Madigan says it’s not the last we’ve seen of him.  He’ll be at the coffee shop downtown (drinking tea) and riding his bicycle.  He added that Northfield’s “a great community” and he wants to stay connected.  He’s also in the Northfield Rotary.  As far as retirement goes, he has a couple of trips planned to the  Boundary Waters and out East.

DJJD horseshoe found

The DJJD horseshoe was found this morning around 10 o’clock.  Karen Roback registered her button and will now receive the entire $900 prize.  She and her daughter Sophie were the ones who found it behind the old Safety Center but Roback says the entire family was involved.  They enjoyed the hunt and now they’ll enjoy that prize!

EDA met this morning – the meeting is archived online

2014 Horseshoe Has Been Found!

Thu, 08/28/2014 - 10:54am

Karen Roback and her daughter found the horseshoe at 10:15am this morning (Thursday) behind the “THE OLD SAFETY CENTER” in the area directly behind the current fire station (City property on 5th and Hwy 3). This area will be host to the firemen’s party/event next week during DJJD as they do every year.

Karen and her family deciphered the sidewalk poems throughout downtown Northfield this week gathering letters and unscrambling them to assist in leading them to this spot.

On Friday (tomorrow) hunters would have received the 3 more letters and Saturday they would receive the “wheel of fortune” like letter/word layout (giving the number of words and total letters in each word) along with the word THE. THE XXX XXXXXX XXXXXX.

Karen has registered her button and will receive the full $900 purse.

DJJD Horse Shoe Hunt 2014 – Clue Four

Thu, 08/28/2014 - 6:55am

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 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

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

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.

Today’s news update – Nfld man “just snapped” – races through Faribault; Committees formed to iron out ARD details; Nfld Council talks budget tonight

Tue, 08/26/2014 - 12:02pm

Nfld man “just snapped” – races through Faribault

A 44 year old Northfield man is in jail after fleeing a police officer. According to the criminal complaint Kevin Scott Davidson was spotted by a Faribault police officer driving through downtown Faribault at a high rate of speed ignoring stop signs, ignoring the officers flashing lights and finally hit another vehicle in the intersection at 13th street west and 2nd avenue.  As the officer arrested him, he yelled to the occupants of the other vehicle that he was sorry.  They were transported to District One with non life-threatening injuries, Davidson was not hurt.  There was a strong odor of alcohol on his breath.  He told officers that he started drinking at 9:30 Saturday morning and had consumed beer, vodka and smoked marijuana.  Davidson was pulled over just before noon.  He told police that he was just driving to drive away the pain.  He deliberately ignored the stop signs because “it didn’t really matter to him”.   He “just snapped”.  He denied knowing that the officer was behind him.  He suffers from emphysema and was having a crisis.  He cried off and on through the booking process and apologized to officers.  Davidson is facing a felony charge for fleeing as well as criminal vehicular operation of a vehicle while under the influence, reckless driving and dui.  He’s facing up to 3 years in jail if convicted of the most serious charge.  Davidson has several other convictions including theft, burglary, domestic assault, open bottle, speeding and driving after revocation. His next court appearance is September 8th.

Committees formed to iron out ARD details

As Bridgewater and Dundas continue to disagree about their Annexation agreement they formed committees to deal with the most “thorny” issues.  City Administrator John McCarthy says one of those committees will meet tonight(Tuesday)to discuss 115th street.  A small portion is in Dundas but in the ARD it runs from Falk Avenue to CR 20.  The portion that’s in Dundas is very steep.  It serves Bridgewater and they want to make sure it’s maintained.  Another question is the increased traffic on Decker street which is gravel.  It’s concerning to the township and Dundas as a potential safety problem.   Whether to pave Decker is a future question.  Decker becomes Depot when it enters Dundas which was just recently paved.  They also added curb and gutter.

The Public Works/Public safety building for Dundas is coming along.  The building is up, the siding’s not quite done but the windows are being installed and the roof is complete.  Interior framing and insulation is being done.  They hope to have the Police in by mid-October and Public works shortly thereafter.
