Ask Us: Hanging stuff, political or not, prohibited on utility poles | Local News

Q: Is it legal for property owners to use public utility poles next to their property to display political flags? If it’s illegal, how far from the lane / property line would a mast need to be placed on your property? Is there any way I can report this issue?

A: “Most of the wooden utility poles along the streets and alleys in Mankato are owned by utility companies in the area – Xcel and BENCO,” said Michael McCarty, Mankato’s assistant city engineer. ?A small number can belong to a communications company. I would refer to their exact rules, but in general it would not be recommended to add anything to them. “

If a pole is made of metal, it probably belongs to the city – think street lights and traffic lights – and it’s definitely illegal to put a political flag or anything on it, McCarty said.

“By regulation nothing may be attached to these poles.”

If someone wanted to erect their own flagpole, they would have the right under the First Amendment to get a wide range of political messages across. But the pole has to be outside the public path.

In most residential streets, that means the bar should be more than 15 feet behind the curb, McCarty said. If the street has a sidewalk, the public right of way usually ends 1 m behind the sidewalk.

For reporting an alleged violation, McCarty recommends contacting a customer service representative through the city’s website or by telephone (dial 311 or 387-8600) if ?a resident sees something they have concerns about?.

As for the utility masts ….

“While we understand that sometimes people want to hang things on our rails, safety is our top priority,” said Matt Lidstrom, Xcel Energy media representative. ?We have a longstanding policy of not allowing any materials – advertising, decorations, flags or works of art – on our power and street lamp posts. It’s just a safety and liability issue for our employees and the public. “

So inform Xcel if this policy is violated.

“If we notice something on our poles, we carefully remove what is there and, if possible, give it back to the owner directly,” said Lidstrom.

Q: Was I ever happy to see the Ask Us Guy article about the rattling of Jake’s brakes! Lookout Drive drives us crazy in the early hours of the morning.

It starts around 3am and yes, there is a sign saying ?Vehicle noise laws enforced?. Yes exactly!

Why is it not enforced? It happens every morning. It echoes through the valley and shakes our homes. Mankato is such an awfully noisy city. PS Stop the train whistling too! PSS We have to sleep – have to work all day.

A: The previous question was about Jake brake noise on Highway 169 in Mankato, who lacks the procedures to enforce state law against the sometimes noisy semi-trailer brake systems.

(To be enforceable, a city must pay the Minnesota Department of Transportation the cost of putting up signs saying “Vehicle Noise Law Enforced” and agreeing that local law enforcement officers will actually enforce the law.)

North Mankato, on the other hand, is set up for enforcement, and North Mankato officials are trying to do so when they catch a trucker breaking the law, Police Chief Ross Gullickson said.

“I know that the Jake Braking problem has been reported to us in the past by some residents who were concerned about the noise,” said Gullickson. “The officers speak to you on a case-by-case basis as they are nearby and actually see / hear the violation.”

The officers, of course, have no inkling that a truck was the source of the noise if they were not in close proximity when the brakes were applied.

?The trick is to be in the right place at the right time, like any violation we encounter like speeding and others. You have to be there to see it, ?said Gullickson. “It can be difficult at times when they can handle the other calls and duties.”

As for the reader’s note on loud trains, the original question was asked by a reader who suggested that Jake brakes were the real noise problem in the Minnesota River Valley, not train whistles. And that was in response to a Free Press story that reported that Mankato is considering a multi-million dollar project to upgrade railroad crossings to the point where the city can become a whistle-free corridor that train engineers can’t have to blow more horns before each crossing.

These efforts are continuing and a series of meetings have been scheduled for the last three weeks of June in the Mankato districts most affected by train noise. You can find details in the May version of the Mankato City Newsletter www.mankatomn.gov/about-mankato/news/city-school-newsletter.

Couple transforms kitchen and living room despite having three kids and working full-time - irish mirror online

A couple completely remodeled their living room and kitchen all by themselves – while balancing busy full-time jobs and looking after their three children during the lockdown.

Brady and Kassie Berkhof, both 35, from Duluth, Minnesota, worked hard on their DIY project but only had evenings and weekends, which meant it took longer than they would have liked.

The couple, who are parents of Madeline, 10, Hudson, 7, and Ayla, 5, made almost the whole world themselves, saving them thousands of pounds.

But the DIY project comes at a price, as the family was forced to eat microwave meals on the floor for months while remodeling the rooms.

The couple bought their two-level home for $ 215,000 in 2011 and, after the lockdown, decided to change the look of their living room and kitchen, believing the rooms were boring and dated.

Kassie did the design while her partner Brady, who works as a journeyman plumber, completed the installation and construction.

Was the kitchen room out of date?

The kitchen is now bright and modern

They started the project in November 2020 and removed the floating wall separating the two rooms, as well as the kitchen floor and peninsula to create an open living space.

Brady and Kassie installed new white kitchen cabinets and quartz countertops from Home Depot and new taps from Delta.

They also installed new lights and a Ferguson chandelier, a new back wall, and a brand new sink.

The family also added a fireplace and renewed the ceiling.

The family of five lived at home during the renovation and lived on microwave meals for weeks – even sitting on the floor while doing the dishes in the laundry room and eating.

“We had to set up a temporary kitchen that was made up of a microwave, air fryer, Instapot, toaster and cook out of it,” Kassie told Jam Press.

?We also had to wash dishes in the laundry room.

“We lived at home during the renovation and had no furniture upstairs for several months, which meant picnics were on the floor for most of the days.

“Brady and I both have full-time jobs, so we had to work on the renovations in the evenings and on weekends, so it took us longer.”

Brady and Kassie also bought new equipment and redecorated the space, bringing the total cost to $ 40,000 (£ 28,300).

The entire renovation took six months to complete.

?We love the result,? added Kassie, a hospital business analyst.

?We tend to go for minimalist, functional designs that aren’t too trendy, and I think we did just that.

?The best part of the renovation was working together to bring our vision to life.

?We trust each other and have similar tastes when developing design ideas, so working together is fun.

?We really enjoy the entire process, from the early stages of design to installation and finishing touches.

“It is very rewarding to see the end result of all the hard work.

In a few pieces of advice to others looking to renovate their home, Kassie added, ?Always allow a small margin in your budget for unexpected expenses.

?At the beginning of the design, try to visualize the flow of the room, where you will keep things and what makes the most sense, where devices should be placed, how cabinet doors will open, etc.

?Measure and measure again. This is very important when designing and ordering materials.

?Shop around, check out multiple places for prices and products.

?Bring samples of material into your home, different lighting can really change the colors and look.

?Invest your money in materials that are more durable, like cabinets.

“Fittings and lights can always be changed later if your budget is tight now.”

Authorities believe that alcohol contributed to the crash.

ST PAUL, Minnesota – The office of Governor Tim Walz announced that the governor will sign an executive order extending his emergency powers by 30 days as efforts to tame COVID-19 continue across Minnesota.

The executive move – albeit more limited than in previous iterations – aims to maintain Minnesota state vaccination centers and the moratorium on evictions while maintaining the state’s hunger relief programs.

The governor announced that starting June 14, he will convene a special session of the Minnesota Legislature to deal with the Minnesota biennial budget.

The governor urges lawmakers to seek common ground that will enable the state to boost economic growth, cope with police accountability for high profile police murders, and establish a “departure” for the state moratorium on pandemic-era evictions , that “ensures stability on the housing market and supports tenants and landlords at the same time.”

“Minnesota is in a good place in our efforts to end this pandemic,” said Governor Walz. ?That’s why we’ve started reducing our nationwide response. We look forward to working with the legislature to ensure we continue to ensure the safety and health of Minnesota and to pass a budget that supports Minnesota’s recovery. “

The governor says his peacetime expansion of emergency powers is in line with his administration’s attempt to slowly reduce Minnesota’s response to COVID-19.

To date, approximately 65% ??of eligible Minnesotans have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and daily case numbers in Minnesota have consistently remained below 200 for the past five days.

A press release released by the governor’s office said the government repealed nine executive orders in May and another 13 will be repealed by the end of June.

The state says the remaining executive powers allow the government to provide a range of pandemic relief services such as vaccine distribution and expanding aid through the state’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

The office warns that ending the state’s emergency powers now would jeopardize nearly $ 90 million in SNAP benefits by September 30, 2021.

Saxon Harbor Marina & Campground comes full circle after deadly 2016 storm

Koski observed a minute’s silence at the ceremony. A plaque was also erected near the port to honor his memory.

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers was one of many leaders who made the trip. He spoke of the importance of investing in an infrastructure that can withstand storms in the years to come.

?The Northern Wisconsin and Lake Superior region has been hit by three 1-in-1,000 rainfall events since 2012, causing over $ 100 million in damage. So I hope we have proposed some major infrastructure investments to reduce and prevent flooding. “Said Evers.

Congressman Tom Tiffany and US Senator Tammy Baldwin also attended the event to demonstrate their support for the project.

“We needed to build better, stronger, and more resilient with those resources, and that’s exactly what we’ve done here,” said Baldwin.

Several improvements have been made to make the port more flood-resistant. Jesse Fink, landscape architect and project manager for the Smith Group, said the bridge over Oronto Creek has been built higher and the campground has moved further from the lake, to name a few.

?We looked at a diversion of the bridge, among other things, so now you will see that the bridge is instead sloping across the creek so that it cannot be blocked by these strong currents, and then we were able to restore all the banks of the marina and put the briefs back on, and then we finally finished rebuilding the campsite last fall, ?said Fink.

The entire project cost $ 14.6 million. Eric Peterson, Iron County Forestry and Parks supervisor, said half of that money will come from FEMA. He hopes the investment will pay off for years to come.

?Iron County has the only county-operated marina on one of the Great Lakes in Wisconsin. It’s not uncommon on a busy weekend to have 1,000 people come here – whether they’re using the marina, camping, or just enjoying the lake, and of course all of these people bring tourism money into the economy, “said Petersonson.

Another benefit of all of the work that has been put into the Saxon Harbor Marina and Campground is that it is now certified as a ?Wisconsin Clean Marina? – which means it will help prevent pollution and the wildlife and the public Protect health.

St. Cloud celebrates June 15 and teaches about former black leaders

ST. CLOUD – People of all backgrounds celebrated the jubilant June celebration on Lake George on Saturday, the first festival in the park this summer and the 24th year of the event in St. Cloud.

Juniteenth marks the time when the last remaining slaves in Texas were told they were free after the Emancimation Proclamation in the 1860s. The celebration of June 19 as a public holiday began in Texas and has spread across the country.

The St. Cloud-based African American Male Forum was founded in 1994 and organized both Juneteenth and Kwanzaa meetings for St. Cloud, said founder Robert Johnson of the Lake George stage.

People visit a number of stalls during the 25th annual Juneteenth Celebration event on Saturday, June 12, 2021, on Lake George in St. Cloud.

“We went to Riverside Park for many years for Juneteenth, east of St. Cloud,” Johnson said. “We would have 50 to 60 people, then 100 people, then a few 100 people … now we have represented many, many organizations today.”

This year’s event was organized by the African American Male Forum and supported by the Higher Works Collaborative, St. Cloud NAACP, St. Cloud State University, and the City of St. Cloud.

The celebration took place on Saturday from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. Dozens of colorful tents and three bouncy castles surrounded the field south of the stage, each with a local organization offering resources, information or activities.

Each organization’s booth also had a question about an African-American contribution to their industry. At the end of the evening, visitors who had filled out a card with answers to each question entered a prize draw.

Contest entries will be on display at one of the booths during the 25th annual Juneteenth Celebration event on Saturday, June 12, 2021 on Lake George, St. Cloud.

“The event itself is really focused on education and learning,” said Buddy King, Higher Works’ collaborative operations manager who helped organize the celebration.

In the past, the event has focused on food, games and a talent show, King said. This year, “we’re making sure people … understand the contributions African Americans are making to our community, especially here at St. Cloud.”

Last year’s meeting in June in St. Cloud was canceled in the first few months of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It was a huge loss for us,” said Robert Johnson, founder of the African American Men’s Forum, from the stage on Lake George. “We have lost the sense of community, the opportunity to support one another, the opportunity to celebrate an important event in the history of our country.”

In 2020:A “grim” juneteenth: St. Cloud residents celebrate juneteenth amid COVID-19

As part of this year’s education focus, the event honored five of St. Cloud’s deceased African American leaders: former St. Cloud NAACP Presidents LeRoy Hill and Clarence White, St. Cloud State University’s longtime career mentor Lula Mische, Multi – talented artists Fred Yiran and Dexter Stanton, after whom the Dexter R. Stanton Essay and Visual Art Contest is named.

“The pioneers we honor today are people who made a difference,” said Johnson.

Pictures and information about those honored during the ceremony can be seen at the Juneteenth Celebration event on Saturday, June 12, 2021 on Lake George, St. Cloud.

“Can you imagine being African American in St. Cloud 40, 50, 60 years ago … tackling the same problems we face today and not having that kind of support,” he said. “The fact that we’re here today celebrating June 15th with so many people from so many backgrounds means that their work has been meaningful and successful and will continue.”

To continue their work, Pastor James Alberts of the Higher Ground Church of God in Christ invited everyone at the celebration to spend a year talking to other people.

People make their way to stalls and activities during the 25th annual Juneteenth Celebration event on Saturday, June 12, 2021 on Lake George in St. Cloud.

“If we do that, we’ll make Juneteenth exactly what it is supposed to be,” said Alberts. “We do it through unity.”

“Put yourself in this position so that you can lift up those who come after you,” he said. “We can do it, St. Cloud, because we’re big enough to make a difference and we’re small enough to make it happen.”

Duluth plans scavenger hunt for National Get Outdoors Day on Saturday

That’s on Saturday’s program with a scavenger hunt organized by Duluth’s Parks and Recreation Department and Leadership Duluth.
Now the challenge is, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, participants have four hours to visit four parks across Duluth and pick up their scavenger hunt passes.

The sooner you have visited all of the parks, the more likely it is to win a prize, but the city’s staff encourage everyone to enjoy the great outdoors.

“National Get Outdoors Day coincides very well with the weather change and the end of the school year, so we’re really happy to bring people to our parks and experience them in a different way,” said Duluth Recreation Specialist Megan Deckel.

The four parks for tomorrow’s scavenger hunt include: Kingsbury Creek Park, Quarry Park, Chester Bowl, and the Hartley Nature Center.

Duluth plans scavenger hunt for National Get Outdoors Day on Saturday

That’s on Saturday’s program with a scavenger hunt organized by Duluth’s Parks and Recreation Department and Leadership Duluth.
Now the challenge is, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, participants have four hours to visit four parks across Duluth and pick up their scavenger hunt passes.

The sooner you have visited all of the parks, the more likely it is to win a prize, but the city’s staff encourage everyone to enjoy the great outdoors.

“National Get Outdoors Day coincides very well with the weather change and the end of the school year, so we’re really happy to bring people to our parks and experience them in a different way,” said Duluth Recreation Specialist Megan Deckel.

The four parks for tomorrow’s scavenger hunt include: Kingsbury Creek Park, Quarry Park, Chester Bowl, and the Hartley Nature Center.

One dead, multiple suspects in custody after violence erupts outside funeral in north Minneapolis

Bishop Richard Howell previously confirmed for KARE 11 that the shooting took place at Shiloh Temple, where a funeral for Christopher Jones Jr.

MINNEAPOLIS – Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder says one man is dead and another injured after being shot during a funeral near Shiloh Temple International Ministries in northern Minneapolis.

Police said they arrived at the scene around 1 p.m. Friday and learned that a suspicious vehicle had escaped from the scene.

Shortly thereafter, the vehicle description was sent to officers who were able to stop the vehicle in the Cretin Avenue area of ??St. Paul.

The police said that several people had been arrested after the incident, but that they could not provide any information about their identity.

Elder says a man believed to be in his twenties was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, where he later died around 2:30 p.m.

Another person arrived at the North Memorial Medical Center in a private vehicle with non-life threatening gunshot wounds after the shooting.

“The fact that we have shootings during the day … speaks to the audacity of these crimes, the lack of care for what puts people at risk,” said police spokesman John Elder in an evening press conference. “It’s amazing that we could have fired ten, fifteen shots … Bullets don’t just hit the target and fall, they keep going and if they miss they can go a long way.”

Bishop Richard Howell previously confirmed for KARE 11 that the shooting took place near Shiloh Temple, where a funeral for Christopher Jones Jr.

Jones was the man who was fatally shot and killed outside a nightclub in downtown Minneapolis on May 22, during an incident that also claimed the life of pending University of St. Thomas graduate Charlie Johnson.

“We need help from everyone,” Howell said. “This is our community. And if we don’t do anything, who will?”

Howell said there appears to be a dispute inside Shiloh Temple where shots were fired outside. The bishop said the violence could be related to a “rivalry” between some of the funeral attendees.

“These were two friends who happened to know each other and decided to draw their guns and shoot each other,” Howell said.

A criminal complaint against Jawan Contrail Carroll, the man charged with the death of Jones Jr., details how investigators say Carroll is known to them as someone connected to the Tre Tre’s, a violent street gang in northern Minneapolis stands. Prosecutors say Carroll and Jones Jr. had a verbal exchange outside the Monarch nightclub, Jones was beaten and then Carroll drew a gun and opened fire, killing Jones.

It is currently unclear whether the shooting on Friday had anything to do with the fatal incident in late May.

Police are asking anyone with information about the Friday shooting to submit anonymous reports to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
