Today’s news update – Lengthy Meadows Park discussion has no resolution; EMS training starts September 21st; FREE trees!

11 hours 28 min ago

Lengthy Meadows Park discussion has no resolution

With 2 Northfield councilors absent from the meeting, Council could not get a resolution passed on the Meadows Park master plan.  However they did talk about it for 2 hours.  Paul Miller of Paul Miller design presented his plan that could take the park from the bare necessities to a $3.6 million design.  The City needs to have some sort of plan in place by July of next year to keep the nearly 42 forfeited acres they bought for taxes from Rice County in 2013.  Some councilors want to turn back 4.6 acres to the County which could then be sold on the open market where it could be housing or not.  All of the neighbors want the entire acreage in parkland.  Connectivity for Abbey Road was one of the concerns of some council members early on.  Peterson White said it could be a wonderful park with or without the 4.6 acres but, as councilors, they’re accountable to the priorities of the Park Board, the EDA, the HRA and the tax payers.  Public Works Director Dave Bennett answering a question on stormwater issues said no matter what the development is, the stormwater facility would be sized to accommodate the land use.  Mayor Graham reiterated that they were only talking about Phase 1 of the plan which is very simple and includes community gardens and keeping the option open to turn back the smaller portion.  That would still have to come back to council AND the various boards and commissions to reconvey the 4.6 acres.  DeLong, the Ward councilor for that area, offered a resolution to keep all the land, that also failed without 4 yes votes.  We’ll have more on the levy votes tomorrow.  The Mayor’s recap of the meeting this morning is at kymnradio.net.

EMS training starts September 21st

This Fall Northfield Hospital and Clinics will hold their Emergency Medical Responder training.  EMS Director Brian Edwards it’s what he likes to call “a first aid class on steroids”.  It’s 64 hours that will teach you how to be the initial first responder to the scene of an accident or critical incident. You’ll learn how to take vital signs, do patient assessments, splint, apply oxygen, do CPR, use and how to use an AED. Stabilizing someone is the main point.  The second half of the training starts in February.  That’s the EMT completion class that is far more in depth and is 100 hours.  After taking both courses, you can take the national registry exam and become an EMT.  Edwards says the training is open to everyone.  Classes are Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6 to 10 and occasional Saturdays.  The fall class starts September 21st.  For more information go to northfieldhospital.org.  or call Edwards at 646-1444.

FREE trees!

The City of Northfield will be removing various trees at Wheeler Park at the corner of Jefferson Parkway and Prairie Street tomorrow at noon. There are approximately 20 trees that are 3-4 years old available free to the public.  It’s  first come/first served. If interested, you’ll need a vehicle able to transport. If you would like to look at the trees before tomorrow, they’re on the west end of Wheeler Park marked with a yellow ribbon are available to the public. For more information, contact Project Manager Jasper Kruggel at 507-645-3027 or jasper.kruggel@ci.northfield.mn.us

2015 Horseshoe Hunt Clue #3

16 hours 31 min ago

My Celebration Journal – Friday, September 11th
After the 7pm Raid Re-enactment Bill asked for more. He had a brochure and was crossing off events. We sat down for a burger to work on more places. It is all about location I stressed and added these to the list…

That kick-off event that honors the dead, you know not to go there.
And of course the event where the Raiders visit kids, all those places are off limits.
If you plan to watch 8th Street, the shoe won’t be there.
And if you’re into old baseball, you’re in the wrong places.

Today’s news update – Liquor at Castle Rock Store still in question; Nfld Council has a closed session and a full agenda; Rice Co. Commissioners okay grant dollars and wildlife mgmt areas; Nfld School Master Facilities plan mtg. tonight

Tue, 09/01/2015 - 12:02pm

Liquor at Castle Rock Store still in question

Castle Rock Store owner Monty Grinager is looking to add off-sale liquor.  He wants to specialize in local spirits, brews and wines.  While he has a lot of supporters including Dakota County, Grinager said they’ve checked the variances and he’s gone through a background check, Waterford Township has an issue.  The are is an Agricultural Preserve Zone.  The store, which sells gas and convenience items, has been in the same location since the ‘70’s.  During a public hearing last night, Grinager said that Township Supervisors are still holding on to the ordinance that this is called a change of business but will have their attorney look into it.  He added that Supervisor Liz Messner had done a lot of research into adding off-sale liquor and found MANY instances where this is happening.  Grinager said she changed her mind on it and seemed in favor.  The next step is approval from the attorney and then it’s on their September 14th agenda.  This allows time for Grinager to get before the Dakota County Board of Commissioners.  He’s excited and says he has lots of plans.  Messner confirmed they will vote on September 14th so that Grinager can be prepared for the final step in Dakota County.

Nfld Council has a closed session and a full agenda

Northfield City Council will meet in a closed session tonight at 5:30 for preliminary consideration of allegations against an employee.  That’s what the notice says, no one at City Hall is talking.  They will then meet at 7 for a regular meeting.  They’ll hear a presentation from NAFRS joint powers board members Glen Castore and Bron Scherer on their budget.  Council will be asked to accept the budget at a future meeting.  During the regular agenda they’re being asked to approve a Master Plan for Meadows Park, including turning back 4.6 acres of the 41 acres parcel to the State.  Council will also be voting to approve preliminary tax levies for the HRA, EDA and the Property tax.  The meetings are streamed live on the City’s website.  Mayor Graham will be in studio tomorrow morning at 7:20 with a recap.   On tonight’s Beyond the Open Mic, Victor and Don discuss the liquor store odyssey and the history of the rental code, which Don co-wrote.  That’s at 6 tonight.

Rice Co. Commissioners okay grant dollars and wildlife mgmt areas

Rice County Commissioners quickly approved accepting grant dollars from Homeland Security for $32,000 for emergency management operations including drills.  Rice County Sheriff Troy Dunn says the dollars pay for about half of the emergency managers pay.  Commissioners also approved 2 resolutions to purchase land for wildlife management areas which will be for hunting, trapping, bird watching, etc.  Jeanine Vorland of the DNR added that these areas are closed to motorized traffic.  One parcel is 166 acres in Erin Township along the west shore of Phelps Lake, the other is 165 acres at Prairie Creek in Wheeling Township near Nerstrand.  The state will pay the property owners the assessed tax value.

Nfld. Schools Master Facilities Plan mtg. tonight

The Northfield School District is holding another Master Facilities plan meeting tonight at 7 o’clock at Sibley Elementary media center.  They’re looking for public input to gauge community interest in the plans and cost.  There will be another this Thursday at Bridgewater Elementary.  Same time, same material.  Three more meetings are scheduled for September.  Superintendent Dr. Chris Richardson said the idea is to make sure as many community members as possible have an opportunity to voice their opinion.  Some of these plans could involve a bond referendum.

Today’s news update – Dundas man tries to blame kid; Castle Rock Store looking for support to sell local liquor; Horseshoe Hunt holds largest purse in history

Mon, 08/31/2015 - 12:02pm

Dundas man tries to blame kid

An 18 year old Dundas man tried to blame his 14 year old companion for blasting windows out of a car at Mill Park in Dundas and stealing contents.  Brandon Hatfield is charged with 1st degree Aiding and abetting damage to property, a felony, and receiving stolen property, a misdemeanor.  According to the criminal complaint, the pair were walking past Mill Park when they noticed a vehicle. Hatfield told police that the 14-year-old said “let’s [mess] it up,” and the boy shot out the windows with a pellet gun. Hatfield said he tried to get him to leave. He denied taking anything from the scene.  When officers talked with the 14-year-old, he told police that Hatfield found a bat at the ball field and “nailed” the front windshield and started to hit the window, before shooting the car with the pellet gun.  According to police, a number of text messages between the two showed Hatfield admitted to shooting and attempting to hide the bat.  Police earlier spotted the pair with various items on them believed to be used in the destruction and items from the vehicle.  The cost of repairs to the vehicle is estimated at more than $1,000 dollars.  Hatfield faces up to five years in prison if convicted of the most serious charge.

Castle Rock Store looking for support to sell local liquor

Castle Rock Store owner Monty Grinager is looking to add off-sale liquor.  He wants to specialize in local brews and wines.  He’s had a lot of support from the distillers, brewers, farmers, the community and even Dakota County, who checked the variances and did a background check.  Six months ago, Waterford Township had an issue with it.  They were “uncomfortable with it” because it’s in an agricultural preserve zone.  The store, which sells gas and convenience items, is right in town on 280th St W and has been there since the ‘70’s.  Grinager pays commercial preferred taxes.  Waterford told him that with enough support they would vote for it.  You can help Grinager by showing up at the meeting tonight at 7 o’clock at Waterford Township Hall at 3847 321st St W in Northfield.

Horseshoe Hunt holds largest purse in history

Today’s the day the Defeat of Jesse James Days Horseshoe Hunt begins!  Cluemaster Tim Freeland says it’s the biggest purse they’ve ever had at $1300.  That is if your button was registered before the actual hunt begins.  If not, then the purse is $300.  Clues will be read on KYMN at 7 each morning and will post to our website as well as djjd.org.   Freeland urges everyone to read the rules!  Keep off private property and check out the safety tips too.  He says there are some outside groups this year trying to get in on the action and win the big purse.  He has a tip for townies.  They’re all Northfield specific!  The Horseshoe Hunt was added 18 years ago for the locals  a week before DJJD for those “townies” who leave town to avoid the chaos.  The DJJD Committee donates $500 to the horseshoe hunt and, this year, four local businesses stepped in for another $800.  Professional Pride Realty, U.S. Federal Credit Union, Bursch Travel and Edina Realty.  If the shoe’s not found, the purse rolls into next year.

Today’s news update – Nfld. Council discusses levy at work session; School Board approves deferred maintenance plan and more public meetings set for Master Facilities Plan; Nfld Police get 2 PBT’s

Fri, 08/28/2015 - 12:02pm

Nfld. Council discusses levy at work session

The City’s preliminary tax levy must be set September 1st.  As always the levy can go DOWN from that point but not up.  Mayor Graham said they talked about a 1% or 3% levy.  Staff recommends 3%.  Citing $100,000 less LGA projected for next year, Councilor Pownell wanted to go higher.  Her concern with 3% is that “we are handstrapping ourselves unless we’re going to look for ways that we can cut and I don’t know those are”.  Over  the course of the next few months, they will go line by line through the departments with the final levy being set in December.  Graham would like to see it at 0%.  Next Tuesday they’ll set the preliminary levy along with the HRA and EDA levies.

School Board approves deferred maintenance plan and more public meetings set for Master Facilities Plan

The Northfield School Board approved the final 10 year deferred maintenance plan for the school facilities.  The plan is then sent to the State.  The money won’t be accessible until the 2016/17 school year.  Superintendent Dr. Chris Richardson said they’re expecting about 3 to 400,000 dollars but it will grow to $500,000.  That won’t happen until the 19/20 school year.  Deferred maintenance is strictly for repair work. The Capital projects levy is different in that it includes remodeling, upgrading, buying technical equipment and more.   Speaking of facilities, there are 4 more public meetings coming up in September on how the community wants to proceed with the Master Facilities Plan.  The district had meetings last year too but these are much more specific about what the options are, what those options are going to cost and what the impact is on tax payers.  Richardson said “when we get into some of these options, we’re looking at the potential of a bond referendum”.  They want feedback on the plans and if the community thinks they should pursue or not.  The meetings are listed on our website and also on the School website.  The same information will be at each meeting.   They all take place from 7pm to 8:30pm

 

  • September 1: Sibley Elementary • Media Center
  • September 3: Bridgewater Elementary • Media Center
  • September 15: Greenvale Park Elementary • Media Center
  • September 22: Northfield Middle School • Auditorium
  • September 29: Northfield High School • Auditorium

 

Nfld Police get 2 PBT’s

The Northfield Police department received quite a donation from “Minnesotans for Safe Driving”.  On Tuesday the Legislative Liaison and Past President for the Safe Driving group, Nancy Johnson, presented the department with 2 PBT’s, preliminary breath tests.  Police Chief Monte Nelson said Kathy Cooper of the Rice County Safe Roads was instrumental in arranging the donation.  He added that not all squad cars have them so officers have to transfer equipment all the time.  A lot of the current equipment is getting old and has needed repair.  Nelson said he’s “so happy” to get these two which brings them closer to their goal of one in every squad.  Nelson added that Cooper and Johnson have worked for years to help make Minnesota roads safer for everyone.  Enhanced dui enforcement is going on now thru Labor Day.
