We're taking our Locally Grown radio show/podcast to the streets this summer. This week, we're recording 2:30 PM Friday in back room at the newly opened James Gang Hideaway, 421 Division St. Our guest: Mill Towns Trail board member Peggy Prowe. Attend the recording session to help provide ambient background noise and maybe even participate.

The legislature just allocated $1 million dollars for the trail. I snapped the photo (above right) today after Northfield Rotary's lunch at the Northfield Golf Club. L to R: Rice County Commissioner Jessica Peterson, Faribault Councillor Carol King, Representative Patti Fritz, Peggy Prowe, Jim Schlicting, Representative Ray Cox, Mill Towns Trail Friends Chair Meg Otten, Senator Tom Neuville, Peter Stolley, Laurie Williams, Neil Lutsky.

FYI: The DNR has a 99-page PDF on its site called the Mill Towns State Trail DRAFT Master Plan. And if you want a Mill Towns Trail t-shirt that reads, "Linking the river communities of Cannon Falls, Randolph, Waterford, Northfield, Dundas and Faribault" and that has an Archibald Mill sketch on it by Dundas Mayor / Switzers Nursery and Landscape owner Glenn Switzer, they're available at:
