I strongly encourage you to vote for Jerry Koch for mayor of Coon Rapids. I have known Jerry Koch for the last 18 years and officed with him for six or seven of those years, as well as serving overlapping terms on the Epiphany Parish Council with him.

When I saw on the Minnesota Ornithological Union’s website that there was a Rufous Hummingbird spotted down near Le Sueur, Minnesota I was immediately intrigued. The only hummingbird that I had ever seen in Minnesota was the Ruby Throated. I had noticed on the Ornithological Union’s checklist (under accidental species) five other species of hummingbirds which included the Rufous. Those only rarely passed through our state.

As we begin cleaning up our yards and flower beds, it seems like fall would be a good time to prune the trees, shrubs and plants before they go into winter dormancy, and we would be wrong.

Knowing whether you are in a bull (up) market or bear (down) market solves half the problem in selecting stocks because the general market influences most stocks. If the Dow Jones Industrial Average goes into a major downtrend, you can expect three out of four stocks to follow.

Inscribed on the wall behind the receptionist’s desk at city hall are the words, “Anoka City Hall: A Gift to the City of Anoka from the Federal Cartridge Corporation. 1955.” On the landing of the stairwell as you walk from the first floor to the second is a bigger-than-life portrait of a handsome and distinguished looking man. Wearing a gray suit with vest, red tie, and matching carnation in his lapel, the commanding presence of this slightly balding man is accentuated by his waxed mustache.

It may be nothing or it may point to a very important difference between the DFL and GOP parties. At the Minnesota State Fair their respective booths were very different. One must enter the GOP booth. At the GOP booth a person very likely would be challenged especially if you wore or carried anything that may look liberal. It turned out they even refused entry to one of their own endorsed candidates.
