“Dean Hove 2” Recall Petitions

Carol Overland - Legalectric - Sun, 07/18/2021 - 4:10pm

Seems some folks don’t like that the Recall City Hall petitions are being posted. FYI, READ THE PETITION (on the front page, under “Signer’s Oath”):

Per Gregory Joseph (his domain is parked, no website to link to!):

I also understand that the names and addresses of the signers of the petition have been posted on an internet site for everybody to see, for what legitimate purpose I have no idea…

Really! His statement is here, starting at 2:23:14:

No idea? It’s called transparency, and objections to posting the petitions demonstrates that people have not read the petition, the front page with the statement that it’s public information, not to mention the back with the “250 word statement” of justification for recall.

Here are the Hove 2 Petitions, the Petitions and then those with irregularities:

Here are the Petitions, from above files, with irregularities, such as someone not registered to vote but signing, or one person filling in form for someone else, etc., with irregularities identified on the yellow post-it. You can see that many of them were filled in with one person filling in more than their own, or someone else filling in for another, and many of those slid through and not eliminated:

Beautiful Black-Eyed Susans

The beauty of Black-Eyed Susans (Rudbeckia) is hard to overstate. Reliable and quick to establish, these beautiful perennials attract birds, butterflies, and bees. The bright golden yellow flowers have black or brown centers and make a bold color statement in the garden from midsummer to fall.

Black-Eyed Susans are versatile when it comes to placement because they are just as useful in pollinator gardens and wildflower plantings as they are in formal landscapes. They tolerate some shade too, so they’re great for transitions between sunny and shady plantings. What’s more, Rudbeckia makes an excellent cut flower.

Black-Eyed Susans We Love

American Gold Rush is an improvement on classic Rudbeckia. The foliage boasts improved disease resistance and narrower leaves that stay clean throughout the season. The pale green leaves are slightly fuzzy and make a lovely backdrop for the riotous flower show from midsummer to fall. Their bright yellow flowers look stunning with purples, reds, oranges, and whites. 

Little Goldstar is a more compact variety of the classic Black-Eyed Susan. A blanket of cheerful yellow flowers tops dark green foliage from midsummer to fall. The smaller size makes it great for tighter spaces that need a pop of yellow. Try Little Goldstar with Liatris, Echinacea, and Asters for a beautiful show.

Prairie Glow features bright red-orange flowers with yellow margins above a basal rosette of three lobed foliage. The small flowers dot the landscape with cheery color and they look great with grasses, purple coneflowers, sneezeweed, and other prairie plants. Prairie Glow is easy to grow and great for naturalizing!

NDDC's Downtown Northfield - Thu, 07/15/2021 - 1:56pm

The Northfield Downtown Development Corporation (NDDC) is excited to announce the launch of the 2021 Taste Tour Passports!

Most summers, the NDDC hosts the Downtown Northfield Taste Tour, an event that brings the community into downtown for an evening of fun and food touring around our local eateries and drinkeries. Given the uncertainty of event planning due to Covid-19 and the goal to keep our community healthy and safe, the NDDC Board of Directors decided to evolve the typical Taste Tour event into an extended opportunity for deals and discounts at downtown businesses with the “Taste Tour Passport,” valid through December 31, 2021.

Each Taste Tour Passport has over $50-worth of single-use coupons good at 17 downtown businesses (check out the full list of deals in the comments below).  The NDDC is selling Passports for just $20 each. 100% of the proceeds of every book sold will go toward implementing downtown design projects, providing downtown community programming and assisting downtown businesses—all in support of the NDDC’s commitment to creating and sustaining a vibrant and vital downtown, one that embodies our community’s unique combination of heritage, culture, and social diversity.

Taste Tour Passports will be available for purchase at the Bridge Square Block Parties from 5:00–7:00 PM on July 15, August 19 and September 16, directly from NDDC Board members, or by contacting info@nddc.org for online sales.
