Scarsella rebuffed by MN S.Ct.

Carol Overland - Legalectric - Wed, 07/31/2019 - 11:45am

The Minnesota Supreme Court has denied Scarsella’s petition to the Supreme Court. GOOD!

Click HERE for the Minnesota Court of Appeals argument.

MPR: Scarsella gets 15 years for shooting at Jamar Clark protest

I vividly remember seeing that video, it was out there prior to the shooting, and waiting for the 4th Precinct demonstration to explode at the hands of these yahoos. Yes, Scarsella got what he went there for, incited a “justification” for his opening fire. He said what he was going to do, and he did it. The only good news is that he got a 15 year sentence. His appeal, and trying to get to the MN Supreme Court shows his convictions.

Dodge Center Xmsn – Mission Accomplished!

Carol Overland - Legalectric - Tue, 07/30/2019 - 9:20am

The Minnesota Department of Commerce issued the Draft EIS for the Dodge County wind project, and about the “C” and “D” route proposals for a 345kV line through the heart of Dodge Center, they had this to say:

Here’s the full DEIS Narrative:

DEIS 20197-154728-02Download

This is an example of why it’s crucial to get involved early, that comments must be made at the outset before they have moved into evaluating a proposed route, so that they can consider the input of people on the ground in the initial evaluation. Here, at least 14 people weighed in on the impacts of the C and D routes on their homes and their lives, and that message was heard.

Now’s the time for the City of Dodge Center to acknowledge that it was Tom Applegate’s efforts, alerting the City of Dodge Center and the residents effected by this project’s Route C and D possibility, helping generate the many comments that were filed, that made Commerce’s rejection of these routes a reality.

And I sure hope Commissioner Tuma acknowledges what a bad idea routes C and D were and that next time he has a routing idea, that he commits to spend at least an hour on google earth along the route to know what he’s proposing. These two proposed routes were the worst I’ve seen for a 345kV line.
