12/9/13 Update: The problems appear to now be fully resolved. Thank you for your patience.
Our hosting provider, Dreamhost, performed emergency maintenance several days ago on our web server. This maintenance involved migration to a new server. Since that time, various things have not been working properly, most notably:
- E-mails from the site do not work (user registration / contact us form).
- Images uploaded with stories are not displaying.
We would like to get these problems fixed as soon as possible, but that depends on Dreamhost responding to our ticket requests in an adequate manner. Keep your fingers crossed.

The reason of that research is to lift up your scrutiny and understanding level.

The information you gaher must be real and based on the genuine data. This will assure thereliability of your work.

Goods for Good, Northfield’s annual city-wide garage sale event for charity, has begun! The event runs now through Saturday, May 16. The organizers of each site have selected a charity or cause that will benefit from their sale, and they agree to give at least 50 percent of the money raised to that charity. Shop the sales and know that your purchases will support lots of great causes.
There are 22 sale sites this year and most are indoors, so this is a rain or shine event. Sale hours vary by site, so download the site map, which includes hours and descriptions for each site, or pick one up from a specially marked news box in front of the Northfield News office at 115 5th St. W. in Northfield, or at any of the sale sites. Look for the Goods for Good signs.

When Debbie Tungland recommends you shop the Great Northfield, Minn. Book Fair, it’s like Warren Buffet offering you a “hot” stock tip. She has that kind of track record. Debbie is the woman from Kenyon, Minn, who last year at the Northfield Hospital Auxiliary Book Fair invested one dollar for a copy of “Profiles in Courage” by John F. Kennedy and sold it for $3,000. That’s a nice return.

Jenny Hartley reminds readers that Northfielders for Justice in Palestine/Israel is accepting applications from area residents for its 2015 Ruth Hansen Palestine Travel Scholarship. Applications are being accepted through Feb. 1, 2015.
In the belief that the best way to understand the realities of the conflict in Palestine/Israel is to visit the place itself, NJP established the Ruth Hansen Palestine Travel Scholarship in 2012. It did so in honor of one of its founding and most committed members, long-time Northfield resident Ruth Hansen, in recognition of her decades of advocacy for peace and justice in the Middle East.
This is the second time NJP will award the scholarship. The first recipients, in 2013, were Soraya Dangor and Graison Chapman.
