Carlton County Transportation Issues A Warning

This is SO SAD!!!  Our Adopt-A-Highway volunteers take the time to walk the ditches and clean up after people that are careless and throw or leave their litter with reckless abandon.  Usually, the biggest safety concern is being hit by a passing vehicle, or being cut or poked by a piece of glass or metal.  But, the Carlton County Transportation Department warns of a new concern, one that could leave you disfigured.

With Top NFL Officials Arriving, Vikings Stadium Bill Inches Forward But Still Has Long Way To Go

Roger Goddell is now in Minneapolis, showing just how serious this matter is to the state of Minnesota and the NFL.  I respect Mr. Goddell a lot and I think he will be shocked at the lack of understanding some of the politicians have in Minneapolis.  Rep. Ann Lenczewski, DFL-Bloomington who opposes the bill wants to know if Governor Mark Dayton called Roger Goddell or if he came on his own.  Ann, WHO CARES?!  This is a major issue that needs your complete understanding and you're tied up in who called who?  This isn't high school student council, where I'm sure you completely rocked.  This just illustrates how out of focus some of the politicians are on not just this, but a myriad of issues.

NFL Turns Up Heat: ‘There Are Plenty Of Willing Buyers’ For Vikings

What a year of embarrassment for the state of Minnesota.  It wasn't long ago we made headlines with the shutdown.  Now our "leaders" are being  scrutinized across the country once again.  Regardless of your stance on the stadium issue, everyone should be concerned with the inability to communicate and work together amongst leadership.  They play games and pout.  As I mentioned yesterday, the chances the Vikings will leave Minnesota are now stronger than the chances they will stay.   The lions share of the blame can be placed on elected officials who dragged their feet for 6 years.  I don't know if  it was arrogance or ignorance, or a healthy dose of both on their part.

I mentioned on my show today that former Best Buy CEO Brian Dunn resigned under suspicious circumstances.  There was talk that Dunn, who is married, was having a relationship with a 29-year-old woman who worked for the company.  However, as this article points out, there has to be more to this story because of the legal experts the company has hired to investigate his behavior.

Minnesota Twins Rally From 6-Run Deficit To Win First Series Of The Year

Now this is more like it!  Gardy has said the Twins just need to start swinging the bats.  The Minnesota Twins trailed 6-0 before their bats woke to rally past the Angels 10-9.  The Twins pounded out 20 hits, including home runs from Joe Mauer, Justin Morneau and Josh Willingham to overcome a shaky start from Francisco Liriano.  Matt Capps made it interesting by giving up 2 runs in the top of the 9th but got the final out with the tying run stranded at second base.  The Twins have improved to 2-4 with the powerful Texas Rangers coming to Target Field this weekend for a 3 game series.

Meet A Few New Faces Of The Minnesota Twins

Well, the twins have won a game, thanks to Jamey Carroll and Josh Willingham.  Wait a minute?  Willingwho?  Jamey what?

I guess I really wasn't paying attention to spring training all that much, because to me spring training doesn't really mean a lot.  You don't really know who you are getting until the opening day roster is set.  So who are these new faces of the Twins?  I've done a little fact finding for you.

Burnsville Weighs Shorter School Weeks To Save $5 million, Should Northland Schools Consider Similar Plan?

When I was a student I'd be all for this!  As a working parent, it sounds like a nightmare to make sure the kids would have programs and supervision on the off days.  One of their proposed plans is giving the kids every other Monday off, which I think is too confusing to schedule around.  If you must do this to save money, I'd say end the school year earlier.  I'm fine with extending the school days by 36 minutes so kids would still get the same amount of total class time.

If Burnsville does this and it works, I bet other communities would consider it.  Should Duluth or any Northland school districts look into the following plan?

Minnesota Twins Are Last Winless Team In Majors, Hopefully Posting This Will Make Them Win

The Minnesota Twins have stumbled out to an 0-4 record and are now the only team in the majors without a win.  The good new is....okay there is no good news, especially since it was just announced that starting pitcher Scott Baker will miss the season after elbow surgery.  I know that the baseball season is 162 games long and we're only four games into it, but they haven't even been close to winning a game yet.  We've been spoiled with competitive Twins teams up until last year and a great new ballpark to boot.
