Do people appreciate Northfield.org? I get a steady stream of thanks (sometimes several times a week) from people I happen to see or meet face-to-face. We get an occasional email thanks via our Contact Us form. But I think this might be the first handwritten thank-you note we've gotten... from Jessica Paxton who was one of the people in charge of the Northfield Historical Society's "Club Ed" auction.

Demolition of the Legacy Motel started yesterday... and by 3 pm this afternoon, it was gone. It was the last structure on the site left standing. Construction of Northfield Crossing, a mixed-used development, should begin soon. (A tip of the blogger hat to Kurt Larson, Larson's Printing, for the alert.)

I took the photo of the wind-whipped, partially-collapsed tent this morning at about 7:30. I assume there were people inside, otherwise the tent would have blown away. But I didn't want to find out as they likely didn't get much sleep, given the nasty weather.

Hwy 3 fully reopened yesterday. The trees in front of the Quarterback were removed earlier this week (see April blog post). And the old Community National Bank drive-up has been torn down... soon to be replaced by a Mendota Homes model condo for Northfield Crossing, the mixed-used development that's now ready to begin construction across the street. (Last Monday, the Northfield City Council endorsed the development and provided $3.6 million in TIF.)

Full disclosure: this photo is a year old. I changed the date on the sign to make it appear current. The hours, however, are still the same.

I snapped these photos (click to enlarge) at about 5:15 on Tuesday afternoon on the St. Olaf arb-like area just west of the Tostrud Center. Does the prairie area have a name? Does the evidently-new pond have a name? Attach a comment or contact me.
