Small-town neighborhood
Division Street, Northfield, Minn. Historic downtown is so "full of energy and charm" that one could "spend an entire day checking it out"

William Paget, the man who was killed in an unfortunate train accident in Northfield on Saturday, is memorialized in this kind article...

Paget joined the Minneapolis Fire Department soon after moving here from the East Coast and also served with the Bloomington volunteer fire department, Lins said. He retired from Minneapolis in 2000. His career included arriving with the first engine at the 1982 Thanksgiving Day fire that destroyed the Northwestern National Bank Building, Lins said.

"He could absolutely be counted on to help," he said.

And YouTube brings us a video of a Northfield couple appearing on TV Judge "Judge Judy" in a dog-causes-bike-crash case...
