There's new graffiti on the side of the building that houses Jerry's Hair Shop and Old Stuff Antiques on the West Side of downtown, along the River Walk access path.
4/23 update: I've removed the larger photo on the advice of Police Chief Gary Smith.

How about parking? Outside dining? River access?

MNDOT has a Hwy 3 Project web page posted but it's outdated. Director of Public Works/City Engineer Heidi Hamilton has the latest: "Construction of the retaining wall on Water Street north of St. Olaf Ave is scheduled to start April 25. The rest of construction won't begin until road restrictions are lifted in mid-May. The first activity will be construction of the temporary parking lot at 2nd and TH3 (for use while the city Water Street lot is begin reconstructed). This will be followed by implementing the detours for southbound TH3 and Hwy 19."

This guy was juggling while unicycling on the sidewalk in front of the Archer House on Division St. in downtown Northfield on Friday afternoon. I took this photo when he stopped to engage a group of pedestrians in an impromptu demonstration. They appeared to be impressed and delighted.
The city has an ordinance that forbids bicycling, skateboarding and in-line skating on the sidewalks in the downtown district. Maybe unicycling, too? Does it matter if some judged this to be more entertainment than transportation? Do these kinds of activities add to the vitality of downtown Northfield? Or do they pose more of a risk to pedestrians?

Warren Ringlien seems to have found some bliss in this rocking chair at last week's Home and Garden show. And he's probably still smiling after Monday's City Council meeting when the Council decided to halt routine brush burning at the city's compost site.
It was Warren who initiated discussion of the problem with this posting to Northfield.org's ISSUES discussion list on May 26, 2004.
We hosted a special ten-day web forum on the issue in August, and Warren got appointed to the EQC earlier this year. (Click photos for larger view.)
