Today’s news update – HRA has plans to cross Hwy 3 for revitalization; School officials hold meetings on facilities; 219 Water to be demolished soon

9 hours 16 min ago

HRA has plans to cross Hwy 3 for revitalization

Community Development Coordinator Michele Merxbauer presented to Council last week regarding the HRA’s work plan and levy.  They’ll see an increase of $10,000 due to property values having increased not because they raised the levy.  She said one area of focus includes the neighborhood revitalization program which will be in it’s 3rd year.  They have submitted to the State for grant funding and it looks like they’ll get their full request which is the first time.  They should know by the end of October or early November.  In 2015 they plan on crossing Hwy 3 and focusing on the Cherry Park area around St. Olaf Hill.  It would include from “Spring and Linden to Manitou and  Forest and 3rd up to Greenvale”.  Their goal is to revitalize 5 neighborhoods by 2017.  Another goal is to look into the addition of senior housing.

School officials hold meetings on facilities

The Northfield School Board listened to more on the Facilities Master Plan.  They’ve moved through several stages and now are talking with staff and to the community about what they see are important needs.    Superintendent Chris Richardson and HR and Technology Director Matt Hillman are in the process of wrapping up 18 listening sessions with staff in each of the buildings.  Now they’re starting meetings with the parents.  There are 3 key questions they’re asking, what’s going right with the buildings and what’s not going so well with the building.  There are continued concerns over security, parking and congestion at drop off and pickup times.  Space for storage and room for small group meetings.  Some buildings need more natural light as well.  The 3rd category they call their “magic wand” category.  “If you could have anything you wanted for the building, what would it be?”  Richardson said all of the older buildings have more issues but they’re in good shape.  He added that he’s excited to meet with high school students coming up too.  Senator Dahle is working on legislation for 2015 to find funding for School Facilities.

219 Water to be demolished soon

Crews removed Asbestos from the now City-owned property at 219 Water Street, the former Fink barbershop.  After the waste removal and air quality report American Excavating will start demolition of the building which should be down by mid-November.  Staff is preparing some options for council consideration on what to do with the space.  Previous discussions included working something out with the Pitsavas family for outdoor dining.

15 with the Author | ‘Glimpsing Heaven’ by Judy Bachrach 10/20/14

10 hours 13 min ago

What happens when we die?  On today’s 15 with the Author, Teri Knight talks with Judy Bachrach author of “Glimpsing Heaven – the stories and science of Life after Death”.  Over six years, Bachrach conducted numerous interviews in the United States, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands with cardiologists, emergency room physicians, brain surgeons, psychiatrists, neuropsychiatrists, hospital nurses and neurologists, all of whom came to the same conclusion: For many, death does not signal the end of thought or the end of experience. We know this because of the miracle of CPR: These days, people are coming back to life in record numbers. But what many of us do not know, or believe, is that the returning dead are coming back with memories after death. These memories are, in many instances, verifiable and chillingly accurate.  A fascinating book and interview!  Judy encourages anyone who’s experienced life after death to email her at judy@judybachrach.com

Community News: Northfield Hospital takes precautionary measures

Fri, 10/17/2014 - 1:23pm

Oct. 16, 2014
To: All Media
From: Scott Richardson, Director of Community Relations, Northfield Hospital & Clinics

Regarding: Ebola precautions

Hospital takes precautionary measures

The safety of patients and staff is Northfield Hospital & Clinics’ first priority as it joins hospitals across the
country in taking precautionary measures in the event an Ebola case is identified in the community.
While public health officials work to better understand the Ebola virus and to refine the most effective
prevention and care protocols, Northfield Hospital is adapting its protocols to be ready should a patient
present with Ebola-like symptoms.

As a precautionary measure, those who have certain symptoms and have traveled internationally in the
last 30 days are advised to bypass their physician’s clinic and go directly to the hospital Emergency
Department. The symptoms are: fever, muscle pain, stomach pain, headache, vomiting or diarrhea. Local
health officials stress that it is difficult to contract Ebola unless you have direct contact with someone
who is sick with the virus. The Ebola virus is spread through direct contact with a victim’s body fluids, i.e.
blood, vomit, waste or saliva. There is currently no immunization for the Ebola disease.

“Unless you have traveled to the West African countries in the last 30 days, it is highly unlikely you would
contract the disease,” said Jeff Meland, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Northfield Hospital & Clinics. “And
yet we live in an interconnected world. We need to be vigilant and prepared should a case present
itself.”

Should a patient present with Ebola-like symptoms and meets the travel condition, they would be
transferred for more specialized care to a facility with a larger laboratory for specific tests and with
access to an intensive care unit, said Andy Yurek, Safety Officer at Northfield Hospital & Clinics.

Today’s news update – The ACC wants cash and clout; Matajcek won’t make it; Signs of times old and new; Police Open House

Fri, 10/17/2014 - 12:02pm

The ACC wants cash and clout

The Arts and Culture Commission gave a presentation to Northfield Council this week.  Chair Philip Spensley gave a comprehensive report of their activities and goals for 2015.  Among the popular Sidewalk Poetry and Poetry in a Pocket programs, the ACC wants to create a Northfield Poet Laureate.  Spensley said they’re also exploring a Poet Lariat – Cowboy poetry during DJJD.  They’ve been asked to partner with the Cannon River Watershed Partnership to create sculptures of some of the garbage items pulled from the Cannon River.  Spensley added that they want Council to place a priority on public art.  They want to be consulted early in City projects and have representation in the planning process of those projects.  Mayor Graham added that they have asked for $5,000 yearly for a fund for public art and $20,000 into a grant matching fund.  Generally non-statutory boards are not funded that way.  Councilor Zweifel added that she’d like a broader conversation on funding because a small amount, even $5,000, gives them leverage when securing grants.  She reiterated the conversation would include all the boards and commissions.  Administrator Haggenmiller said, because they are advisory boards, they aren’t typically funded that way but they can look at it. The ACC has applied for 5 grants this year, one they did not get and the other 4 are still in play.

Matajcek won’t make it

The race just got even easier for District 20B Representative David Bly.  GOP endorsed Dan Matjcek will not run.  Rice County Republicans representative Bron Scherer said he can’t officially withdraw as the deadline was June 5th.  His name will be on the ballot but he’s not campaigning.  Technically people can vote for him but it would be a long shot for him to win.  The GOP endorsed Matejcek in May.  Scherer said he has been dealing with personal issues and they wanted to give him some leeway over the summer to sort through it but, in the end, he’s chosen not to campaign.  As for a write-in candidate Scherer says they don’t have anyone and will concentrate their efforts on the other races.

Signs of times old and new

Dundas council authorized the purchase of new signs for the Mill Towns Trail kiosk.  The signs are substantially different than they started out as but City Administrator John McCarthy is pleased with how they’ve turned out, filled with historical information well researched by a number of local folks.  The cost is about $3,000 for this sign panel and frame.  Overall it will cost about $10,000 for all the signage.

Police open their doors to the Public

Northfield Police Chief Monte Nelson is inviting the public to their Open House!  The new police facility on Riverview Drive has been a long time coming but is now ready to show off to the community next Thursday afternoon, October 23rd from 4:30 to 6:30.  Nelson said at 4:30 the American Legion will host a flag raising and dedication ceremony.  They’ll hoist a flag that flew over a post in Afghanistan.  After that the building will be open to tour.  Staff and officers will be on hand to talk with the public about the building and answer questions.  They’ll have some light refreshments available and KYMN will be broadcasting live from the new station.

Today’s news update – Another death being investigated for possible drug overdose; Designs are wonderful – the building not so much; Melchert-Dinkel gets 6 months in County jail; Where’s my NTV?; Beaumaster/Fossum will face off tonight

Thu, 10/16/2014 - 12:02pm

Another death being investigated for possible drug overdose

The Northfield Police Department is investigating the death of a local male as possibly related to accidental drug overdose.  Yesterday evening at about 6:15,  Northfield Officers responded to the 1600 block of Pheasantwood Trail for a report of an unresponsive male. Officers and paramedics determined the male was deceased. Early information from the scene and witnesses indicates this death is possibly related to an accidental drug overdose. An autopsy will be performed by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office.  The victim’s been identified as 23 year old Tyler Jeffrey Jeno. According to Police Chief Monte Nelson  Family was on scene and assisted police.  Nelson is asking media and the public to be respectful of the family’s grieving and wishes for privacy.  The investigation continues. Inquiries may be directed to Chief of Police Monte Nelson at 507-663-9301.  If Jeno’s death is determined a drug overdose, it will be the 4th overdose death in Northfield since May.

Designs are wonderful – the building not so much

The designs are wonderful, the building – not so much.  Director of Library/IT, Teresa Jensen asked the Northfield Council for more money on the Library project which Council has committed $1 million. The drawings the architects brought forward make vast improvements including a new sidewalk.  But along with that they discovered that the  building isn’t up to code.  To get the building up to code will take about $262,000.  The question then becomes should the City pay for the upgrades or should the Library reduce the scope of the project.  Mayor Graham said the total cost of the project is now near $2.1 million.  Jensen is not only asking the City pick up the tab on the building code improvements but also front them another $250,000.  They will do more fundraising and then pay back into the General Fund over a multi-year period.  If Council approves it the City’s General Fund balance would still be at 44% of their operating budget.  The State guidelines encourage between 35 and 50%.  This will come back to council next week where City Building inspector Jim Kessler will be on hand to explain the issues.   Administrator Haggenmiller added that there’s a built-in contingency fund for the project at just under 10%.  They had $300,000 from the Bunday fund and have raised another $150,000.

Melchert-Dinkel gets 6 months in County jail

The Faribault Nurse convicted of assisting suicide was sentenced yesterday. This is the 2nd time William Melchert-Dinkel has been sentenced after appeals and appeals to those appeals.  Rice County attorney Paul Beaumaster said that Melchert-Dinkel and the severity of his crime was at the beginning of sentence guidelines.  That gave him a 36 month sentence which would be stayed if he follows conditions of probation.  On count 2, attempted suicide assistance, Judge Neuville gave him 21 months.  Melchert-Dinkel will serve 180 days in County jail beginning in 2 weeks, he’ll then be released on probation.  He’s not allowed to use internet devices except for work purposes. Beaumaster added that this brings an end for the families.  Melchert-Dinkel could file another appeal.  He’s been denied twice so far.

Where’s my NTV? 

Charter Communications has caused some communication problems for those trying to access Northfield’s Public Access.  NTV’s Paul Hager explains that since Charter’s move to digital, NTV which used to be on Channels 12 and 16 is now on 180 and 187.  Hager’s been taking calls as folks try navigating the digital dilemma and figure out whether they need a digital box or not.  Well, if you had snow, then you need the box.  Northfield’s served by only one Cable company, Charter.  The City has had an agreement with Charter for years to provide the public access channel, Charter charges Northfield residents 75 cents a month to air it.

Beaumaster/Fossum will face off tonight

Tonight, NTV will video the debate between Rice County Attorney Paul Beaumaster and challenger, John Fossum.  It’s the first time Beaumaster’s been challenged since being appointed in 1999.  The forum will be held at the Contented Cow from 7:30 to 9 and will be aired on NTV at 7 Sunday evening and several other times. Hager says they’ve got a great line-up and the public has given them good feedback.  Check out ntv.org for more information and programming.

Today’s news update – Moreland to withdraw guilty plea; Northfield SWAT assist drug bust in Faribault; NHS details activity to Council

Wed, 10/15/2014 - 12:02pm

Moreland to withdraw guilty plea

Michael Wayne Moreland will make a motion in front of Rice County Judge Neuville to withdraw his guilty plea and impose sanctions on the State when he appears for sentencing on October 22nd.  In July of 2012, Moreland was driving the van that killed 48 year old Kimberly Motzko and one of her dogs while walking along a rural road in Webster township.  The case has gone back and forth through the courts with accusations leveled on both sides.  While facing the possibility of criminal vehicular homicide, in September, during pretrial discussion, Moreland chose to plead guilty to Careless Driving – a misdemeanor.  Attorney David Hvistendahl says the judge could deny his motion and continue sentencing however “prior to sentencing, the rule only requires that there be a just and fair reason. And we think that the withholding of exculpatory evidence, that is evidence that would tend to make a jury find him not guilty is certainly a reason to reconsider”.  Evidence that there was an ipod on the scene as well as headphones.  There’s also a new witness to testify that she herself had to swerve around Motzko on the same road that morning.  Hvistendahl continued, “and then we’re asking as a sanction that the court just, against the county attorney, that the sanction be that the felony charge be just flat out dismissed”.  Under the plea agreement prosecution on the felony would’ve been stayed and eventually dismissed.  In the court papers sent to KYMN, attorney Jacqueline Dorsey signed an affidavit saying (the witness) is a client of hers and, while meeting on another matter, told her in passing that Motzko was walking with her back to traffic with headphones on and didn’t notice her coming up from behind.  It will be up to the court to decide if there are any sanctions against Beaumaster.  He commented that he’ll address the motion at sentencing or prepare for trial depending on Judge Neuville’s decision.

Northfield SWAT assist drug bust in Faribault

Northfield officers assist in a large drug bust in Faribault.  Yesterday afternoon various agents from the Cannon River Drug and Violent Offender Task Force (CRDVOTF), along with investigators from Rice County, Faribault and Northfield, as well as uniformed officers and MN State Patrol assisted with multiple residential search warrants throughout Faribault.  Chief Monte Nelson said whenever there are multiple search warrants they send as many officers as they can.  Northfield sent 2 SWAT, 2 investigators and a Sergeant.  According to the press release 3 homes were searched netting 3 arrests.  26 year old Amy Stransky was arrested for suspected 2nd degree possession of a controlled substance.  44 year old Daniel Delgado was taken into custody for suspected 5th degree possession. And 37 year old Luis Medrano was taken in for suspected 5th degree possession and possible federal firearms charges.  Charges at the 3rd residence are being reviewed. Commander Dave Dillon commented “The investigation resulted in the seizure of suspected cocaine and the search warrants were safely executed with coordinated efforts by many agencies.”

NHS details activity to Council

Northfield City Council received a very detailed report from Northfield Historical Society Executive Director Hayes Scriven on what they’ve done with the $19,656 they received from the City and his plans to utilize the same funding for the next 3 years.  Scriven was at the work session to plead his case before decision time for Council next Tuesday.  There was some discussion about work with the Heritage Preservation Commission and Ludescher brought up the possibility of creating a levy.  Mayor Graham’s interview this morning is posted online.
