Re: 2017-18 MN Legislative Session & Budget - Battle for the Senate Majority?

How does one become the President of the Senate? Can the MN Senate select a different person to fill that position before Tina Smith vacates the Lt. Governorship? Chosen by the body. However, a special session would need to be called before the official appointment of Tina to the seat (Jan. 3rd acc...

Re: Samatar Crossing (former 5th Street exit from 94 / bridge over 35W)

Thanks for that info! From the photo I couldn't see any fencing or barricades so I thought maybe it was already being used by bicyclers and pedestrians "unofficially"

Re: Samatar Crossing (former 5th Street exit / bridge over I-94)

Also, for titling purposes, isn't it a bridge over 35W, not 94?

It looks like in this photo that it is already possible for pedestrians to cross over the old 5th St. exit. Is that correct? I haven't been over there to check it out myself. Just curious if it is accessible at the moment or not.

And a mini-fridge. It's a coffee bar (or so says the caption). I can't think of any more high-end way to get my coffee than to microwave it in my bathroom.
ha! Oh, I must have missed the caption.

Thanks for sharing! You made it sound interesting. I've never spent anytime in Milwaukee, even though I've grown up in Minnesota and been to Chicago many times. Also, with Madison a closer drive, Milwaukee always seems to miss my travel time. I suspect I'm not the only one. But, I should try to get ...

Anybody know what's going on in the long empty lots across from Fremont on Lake? Some dumpsters, cars/trucks in those lots yesterday and today. You can also see on the Fremont cam:

Re: Hi-Lake and Minnehaha Mall Area (Target, Cub, etc.)

I can't speak for whether or not it had an effect on their bottom-line, but everytime me and my friends wanted to go have a beer there (especially on the weekend) there was always a cover for a band we weren't interested in seeing and paying $5 or $10 for the privilege. Not sure if that kept other p...
