Elections on Aug. 5 will give voters a chance to name their candidate by party for the Nov. 4 national elections. My request is to take a hard look at Republican Jim Abeler, Anoka, a 16-year member of Minnesota House of Representatives. Jim earned a host of awards and accolades for his legislative work, done because he is an individual who knows how to pull opposing members together for meaningful and fair legislation. In this time of contention by both parties, Jim is one who will be a factor as U.S. senator just as he has done at the state level.

I am writing to get the word out that the City Council of Oak Grove is going to have a final vote on June 30th, 2014 for a “ conditional use permit.” The permit is for an insurance auto auction business to operate out of the former lumber facility located at County Highway 22 (Viking Boulevard) and Tamarack Street Northwest. The permit will allow them to have approximately 3,000 damaged insurance vehicles at the facility to auction.
