Joy Lutheran breaks ground on remodeling project CONTRIBUTED JOY LUTHERAN CHURCH

Joy Lutheran Church, at 1155 Joy Circle in the Goldenwood area of Cambridge, celebrated a groundbreaking ceremony on Sunday, June 24, 2018. After 45 years the church is remodeling and adding onto the building. The addition to the upper level will include a larger entrance area, an additional restroom and reorganized office spaces. The lower level remodeling will result in a larger kitchen area with new appliances and a larger countertop. The unique roof is also being reshaped. Several volunteers from the Laborers

for Christ group are assisting with the project. This volunteer group includes 10 people from around the country who have experience working with several other church building projects. They live in RVs in the church parking lot and also join in the Joy Church services and activities, as well as enjoying many community attractions. During the construction the church continues to host services in the sanctuary as much as possible, but may be creative by holding some Sunday services outside if necessary. The members of Joy hope to celebrate the completed building project by early fall.

I hope you catch the ugly guy who has been impersonating me Last month, I made a joke about perfecting cloning so that I could be in two places at the same time. Well, either I was unknowingly predicting the future and there is a clone of me who has been created and gone rogue, or I have just had one of my credit card numbers stolen. Early this morning, I got a text message asking about a large purchase on one of my cards. That was followed by a pair of phone calls regarding this same suspicious purchase. While it’s frustrating to have to now jump through a bunch of hoops because of this fraudulent activity, it’s also good to know that a credit company’s security department is in fact looking over their customers’ accounts. Luckily, while this card is the one I use for a majority of my in-person purchases, I only had two accounts with automatic payments attached to it, so it was very quick and easy to switch out those two so Worth a I don’t get hit with any “payment deThousand nied.” And because of this relatively little hassle, I choose to use this as a learning Words experience. If you should find yourself in a similar Bill situation, there are a few things that you Stickels III should do. The first one is, as they say in the opening of “The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy,” DON’T PANIC! Unfortunately, this sort of thing is very commonplace and something everybody will probably go through at least once in their life. Second, DO take it seriously. While there are certainly scams out there that impersonate credit card companies in order to steal your identity, people should follow through on these calls or texts. However, they should do as I did and follow a more circular path. I was wary of the text, which came at 3:30 a.m., and the phone number was an 800 number that didn’t identify its origins. So, rather than responding directly, I checked the credit card company’s website, got their customer service phone number, and called that one. If it is a legitimate security inquiry, the company has no problem with confirming this and then transferring you to their fraud department. It might mean you sit on hold for twice as long, but it’s worth the peace of mind. Third is to be proactive with keeping an eye on your accounts. Don’t just pay your bill without taking a glance at your purchase history. In my case, whoever the person is did a test purchase first, making an inconspicuous $42 purchase at some movie theatre in Illinois (hope they enjoyed the show). But their next purchase was for over $2,000 (ironically, for some home security equipment). And that was the purchase that set off all the alarms (pun intended). If they had continued on making a bunch of small, unassuming purchases, they could have financially ruined me, or at the very least created a nightmarish web for me and everyone else involved to untangle. The bottom line is that stuff like this is what they define as a “modern world problem.” It’s just something that we have to deal with in exchange for having the conveniences we now have. The only way to completely avoid things like this is if we went back to only exchanging paper money or maybe even gold coins. But then we would have to worry more about being mugged, held up by gunpoint, or maybe even being attacked by pirates. Bill Stickels III is editor of the Isanti-Chisago County Star.

Kennedy seeks District 8 Congressional seat CONTRIBUTED KIRSTEN KENNEDY CAMPAIGN

Two-term mayor of North Branch Kirsten Kennedy has filed her intent to seek the office currently held by Rick Nolan in the House of Representatives. Kennedy is seeking the DFL nomination in the primary which is taking place on Aug. 14. Early voting is underway at the time of this publication. In addition to serving two terms as mayor, Kennedy has been active in politics for many years. She backs Kirsten Kennedy up her activism with a B.S. in psychology and a masters in Political Advocacy and Leadership from the University of Minnesota-Duluth. In her tenure as mayor, Kennedy has focused on increasing jobs, affordable housing opportunities for residents, promoting accountability, and investing in local business – including the largest solar project in the Midwest. Kirsten is a single mother of five children and employed as a community health professional with SHIP – Statewide Health Improvement Partnership – in Chisago County. Kirsten is running for Congress so that she can put a stop to “politics as usual” and put people in Minnesota’s

8th District first. “The political system is rigged to benefit the rich, and it’s time to put a stop to it,” says Kirsten. She wants to pass a Medicare for All plan. “Every American should have a right to medical care that they need, and it shouldn’t bankrupt them.” “Education is the great equalizer! A strong economy and a robust democracy depend on well-educated and socially engaged citizens. We must fully fund preK-12 public education and all of its mandates, as well as provide our students with up-to-date technology and vocational training so that they are well-prepared for a successful future.” Kirsten knows that we must fix our economy so that it works for everyone. Five of the 10 poorest counties in Minnesota are located in our 8th District. She will address these economic concerns and help to create jobs that pay a living wage if elected to Congress, just as she has done in North Branch as mayor.

Isanti another step closer to environmental efficiency BY JENNIFER KOTILA NEWS@COUNTYSTAR.COM

Isanti mayor George Wimmer presented the GreenStep Four award to Director of Community Development Ryan Kernosky at the July 3 Isanti City Council meeting. The statewide program works under the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency to challenge, assist and recognize cities to put more thought into best practices to benefit the city economically and environmentally. The fourth step is the second-highest step in the program, and only five other communities in the state have attained that level. “By far, we are the smallest community to have done that,” Wimmer said, noting the city has spent this last year accumulating information on everything the city’s been doing with its buildings, vehicles and other activities to try to make the city more efficient. RUM RIVER MALLARDS JUNIOR HOCKEY TEAM TO PLAY IN ISANTI A new junior league hockey team will be coming to Isanti this hockey season – the Rum River Mallards. The season will be seven months long, with the first home game taking place Friday, Sept. 21.

CONTRIBUTED GIRL SCOUT TROOP 53234

From July 19-22, people attending the Chisago County Fair will have the opportunity to learn more about anxiety awareness in children and teens through a Girl Scout Gold Award Project led by North Branch senior Kaitlyn Isaacson. Through undertaking this project, Kaitlyn hopes to earn the Girl Scout Gold Award, the most prestigious and difficult award that a Girl Scout can earn. Not only must the project make the world a better place by solving a community problem in the shortterm, it also must be sustainable for the future. Upon completion, Kaitlyn will join an elite group of Girls Scouts that have undertaken projects to improve their communities and the world since 1916. When determining what community issue to address for her Girl Scout Gold Award Project, Kaitlyn chose to focus on adolescents who have anxiety and are feeling alone. Her goal is to bring anxiety awareness out into the open for children and teens who are suffering, for people to know that help is available and that it’s okay to talk to others about your anxiety. To bring this goal to life, Kaitlyn will work with community groups throughout the sum-

Phoenix Academy of Art and Science, a tuition-free public charter school in North Branch, announces a change of location and a new principal for the 2018-2019 school year. PRINCIPAL JOINS STAFF Dr. Jacqueline Krohn will serve as principal of the charter school starting fall 2018. Dr. Krohn has o over 30 years of exp perience in public s school settings in W Wisconsin, Illinois a Minnesota. and Krohn is a r recipient of the M Minnesota Techn nology Information a Educational and Dr Krohn Dr. Services Award (TIES), “Who’s Who Among American Teachers” Award, and the Golden Apple Achievers Award, sponsored by Ashland Oil. Krohn is also a published author of “Sweet and Sour Bits As I Traveled Through Life,” a compi-

lation of her father’s World War II remembrances of his service in the U.S. Air Force. She is also a collaborative author of “Research-Based Strategies to Grow Student Learning.” Her writing focuses on maintaining a balance of beneficial educational testing with classroom curriculum, as well as grading procedures of both process and product. “Being an educator is not simply a career, it is a calling,” states Dr. Krohn. “It is part of everything I believe, think and do. I am excited to be a part of Phoenix Academy and the community of North Branch.” SCHOOL MOVES FROM ACCESS CHURCH The Phoenix Academy has signed a lease with Trinity Lutheran Church, 38460 Lincoln Trail in North Branch, to use the school building located on the south end of the property. The Trinity school building was originally built for and used by the North Branch School District and later a parochial school. The Phoenix Academy Board had originally planned to use the Access Church building on High-

mer and fall to provide resources, teach coping skills and launch programming to raise awareness and spread the message, “You’re Not Alone.” Children are invited to stop by the “You’re Not Alone” coloring wall while visiting the Chisago County Fair and have the opportunity to win prizes. Isaacson will also have displays at Stacy Daze on Aug. 4 and at the North Branch Fall Harveset Festival on Sept. 29. She is also looking forward to working with the local schools to implement programming for children and teens during the school year.

way 95; however, limitations on growth and the ability to build out when more space is needed became unlikely due to restrictions by the Department of Transportation. The Trinity school building has large classrooms and sinks in every class. “The sinks are so important to us because of the art-integration focus of the school,” said Principal Krohn. “Students will use visual art, such as painting, clay or ceramics and other art materials, to personalize the process of learning academic standards. Having every classroom equipped with sinks will allow teachers to use this important teaching method frequently.” Founder Carlo Galeazzi added, “The Phoenix Academy Board would like to thank Access Pastor Kevin Haseltine for all of the support and efforts made to accommodate the new school.” Phoenix is an accredited charter school and is now accepting K-5 enrollments for the coming school year.

ALZHEIMER’S: wrong dementia diagnosis leads family to think death was near many people just do not understand, and I was also so embarrassed showing up to work after these long nights with my puffy eyes and lack of energy. No one knew what was happening behind closed doors and what I was shielding behind my face. This is why I urge people to learn. After we left the hospital, I will never forget the guilty feeling of asking my dad to pick up a lock for my door as if to keep this “demented” person away from me. The truth was that my anxiety was just so crippling I couldn’t sleep because I never knew if she would wander in thinking it was her room. I remember the drive home still. Five minutes in, my grandma forgot everything that happened.

clearly upset her even more. My mom tried to devise a plan to bring up the memory “issues” (we avoided the use of “Alzheimer’s” at every cost). While at a routine appointment, my mom had discussed prior to the appointment about quietly bringing up the issue. To her understanding, the nurse was going to do a “routine” type of questioning/looking for memory loss. Instead, while my grandma was sitting there already worried and nervous, the nurse blurted, “I UNDERSTAND THERE’S SOME MEMORY LOSS.” My mom was utterly shocked, and my grandma burst into tears. She looked at my mom with absolute betrayal. My mom continued to become the enemy even more. After my grandma became upset, the nurse and doctor said no more. I would say that was when the height of the fights began. Once it was out in the open that my mom and I had discussed her memory issues, grandma never looked at us the same. My mom and I are incredibly close, and I wonder if that bothered her a bit. It’s an odd dynamic, I know. I never did have the relationship with my grandma that I could have, but nonetheless I care infinitely. So, of course, I was going to help my mom, especially since I lived at home through it all. TEARS AND DEPRESSION To be honest, we gave up for awhile. We fell into a really dark, deep, depressing hole. My mom and I would sit and cry. I spent many a night sobbing on the bathroom, hallway or bedroom floor. I spent my nights listening through the vents to listen to my grandma because I could always tell when she was about to ignite a fight. I was up at all hours. I sat at the top of the stairs listening at 2, 3 or 4:00 in the morning, so I could remember what it was this time or fearing my grandma might actually get physical. She is one strong woman, that’s for sure. I listened to my mom cry between the thin walls. I watched us fall apart one by one, identity by identity. I have blocked out some of the really bad moments, but you don’t forget the thoughts racing in your head while lying on your floor staring at your popcorn ceiling,

hearing the devastating cries of your mom and your grandma fading before you. We felt insane, actual insanity. When you talk to someone with Alzheimer’s the conversation is bizarre, to say the least. No one wants to talk about it. FIRST HALLUCINATIONS At one point we had to rush my grandma to the hospital during a night where she suddenly thought she was working again. In a complete panic, she would not calm down. She saw “things.” Hallucinations, delusions. She tried to get into her laptop to get into her “work” computer. She tried to charge her computer with her cellphone charger. She kept telling us about THE filing cabinet. When I told her it was 2017 and she retired in 2010 she said I was lying. I actually kind of think she might not have even known what “dates” or “years” meant during that time. She made attempts to lunge at my mom. All three of us – my mom, dad and I – stood there and knew she was gone. And she was. Since this was a first hallucination-type episode, we rushed to the ER because we literally could not get her out of this state, and it had gone on at home until about 5 a.m. and somewhere between 7-8 a.m. at the hospital. To keep anonymity, I won’t name the hospital, nurse or doctor (it is tempting). What my mom was met with was something I think about almost every single day. Once my grandma was seen

She has also been a community activist in many ways, including volunteer tutoring at North Branch Elementary School, leading PTA, and serving three terms on the school board. She also was the Post Review newspaper editor. In 1997 on a Minnesota/ China educational exchange program, she taught English at Hangzhou Foreign Language School. In 1999, when Senator Janet Johnson, of District 18, lost her battle with brain cancer, Twyla was elected to fill that post in a special election in November and reelected in 2000.

by the doctor, he immediately snapped at my mom as if to say, “YOU did this to her!” Well, that’s how it seemed in my mind. He practically began to accuse her of not getting help for my grandma. At this point, we did not have a diagnosis. To this day I do not and cannot understand the utter lack of consideration and respect. What he did not know is that my mom DID try to get help. She brought my grandma to the doctor. She brought her in several more times expecting help and nothing. Nothing would ever happen. We never got help until that point. He finally was a bit nicer once he learned the truth and said she should see a neurologist. NOT MUCH CAN BE DONE My mom and I both see the same neurologist, so while at her appointment she asked. He had been listed as an Alzheimer’s specialist, but was shocked to learn he was still listed. That’s when our neurologist said he would gladly see her, but “The dirty little secret is none of them like to deal with it because the truth is that there simply is nothing that they can do,” he said. He was the only one who would tell us the truth. And we were able to find out why we were consistently treated the same way over and over. Neither my dad nor I made it into work that day because of the toll on our bodies. I always had a painfully guilty feeling that everyone at work thought I was lying or being “dramatic.” So

A SAD MISDIAGNOSIS We had the realization that my mom and I were in this together and found a practitioner in North Branch who helped with the small things such as diagnosing anxiety and depression to help her find medications to calm her down a little. After getting in touch with our neurologist, we started the MRI process, and got a call saying my grandma had frontotemporal dementia with absolutely no indication or results to be telling us this information. The doctor who performed the MRI (not the practitioner from North Branch or our neurologist) was absolutely incorrect and basically said, “Well, she’s going to die soon, so…” Frontotemporal dementia is vastly different from classic Alzheimer’s. So with incorrect information, we thought we were about to lose her within a year. Through many cognitive tests and behavioral issues throughout the years, it became clear my grandma had Alzheimer’s. This long, winding road feels like it never ends, and to some degree it doesn’t. But what I do know is that you will never feel more alone in life than when you are trying to get someone help and it’s like talking to a blank wall. I have one thing to ask those medical personnel: What if this was your family member? Thanks for letting me write for you and for your touching emails.

Cambridge man robbed at gunpoint in own home BY BILL STICKELS III EDITOR@COUNTYSTAR.COM

A Cambridge man escaped with only minor injuries after walking in on a burglary at his residence Friday, July 6. According to the Isanti County Sheriff’s Office, dispatch received a 911 call at about 6:35 p.m. from a homeowner of a residence on the 32300 block of Goldenrod Street NW stating he was met by two masked males inside

his house. According to a press release by the Sheriff’s Office, one of the males produced a handgun and ordered the homeowner to the ground, where he proceeded to be bound and assaulted by the two males. After the two males left, the homeowner was able to free himself and call 911. The homeowner was treated for his injuries at Cambridge Medical Center. The two burglars reportedly

made off with a large sum of cash and coins and several guns during the robbery. Although the suspects are still at large and the case is under investigation, the Sheriff’s Office believes the victim was targeted by the suspects and that this was an isolated incident. If anyone has any information regarding this case, they are encouraged to contact the Isanti County Sheriff’s Office Tip Line at 763-691-2426.

Outdoor Kitchens and BBQ Grills. The backyard barbecue is an integral part of the American experience. A standalone charcoal grill is a great option for minimal entertaining, but a built-in gas grill complete with burners and surrounding countertop makes for a more functional outdoor space. Bars. Entertaining areas often include bars, so it makes sense that homeowners want to include a place to prepare and serve beverages to their guests even when outside. If you have room in your budget, you may want to install a wet bar where they can rinse mixers, glasses and other items needed to prepare drinks for their guests. Warming features. Propane fire pits offer homeowners the ultimate in convenience. They allow for a beautiful, quality flame without needing a refilling gel or wood. Most propane fire pits are large in size and become the focal point of the patio. They are also often impressively designed with faux wood, rock pebbles or glass. Yard space. Homeowners with ample front yards rather than backyards may want to expand their driveway space to create more room for front yard gatherings. Porch swings and rocking chairs provide a great place to relax, and porch spaces are covered, meaning homeowners can continue to enjoy time outside even when it begins to rain. Pools. Beating the heat in a pool is one of the most popular warm-weather activities. Swimming attracts people of all ages because of its various benefits. In addition to being an enjoyable recreational activity, swimming also is a low-impact way to exercise. Having a backyard pool makes swimming and outdoor fun that much easier.

Jackets, Vikings hire new head football coaches BY BILL STICKELS III EDITOR@COUNTYSTAR.COM

The summer of 2018 has proven to be a transition year for both the Cambridge-Isanti and North Branch football programs. Both schools were tasked with replacing their head football coaches after current coaches Mike Hennen and Sam Ferraro took new jobs – ironically both at Forest Lake High School. Ferraro left North Branch back in April to take on the head coaching duties for the Rangers, his high school alma mater. Two months later, Hennen, who was a college teammate of Ferraro’s, became Ferraro’s new boss after accepting the Rangers’ activities director position. The two schools are coming off nearly polar opposite seasons under their former coaches. The Jackets finished with a 3-6 record, their fourth-straight sub-.500 season as the team continues to struggle to gain momentum while going up against larger-sized schools such as Rogers, Andover and Elk River. Meanwhile, the Vikings enjoyed arguably the best season in school history, going 7-3 and earning their second-ever section runner-up trophy after losing to Cloquet in the finals. The hirings that the two schools made are also nearly polar opposite. While the Vikings chose to hire from within in the form of Justin Voss, who last season was North Branch’s defensive coordinator, the Jackets opted to hire from outside the school, naming Dave Frisell to the position. NEW SCHOOL, SAME NAME Dave Frisell won’t have to

w worry about accidenttally referring to his n new team by his old tteam’s nickname. M Most recently, Frisell, w who has a total of 24 y years head coaching e experience, was head Frisell c coach for the Hibbing Bluejackets. Besides name familiarity, Frisell is also familiar with coaching against some of the area schools, including the team he will now lead. Frisell’s longest tenure came as head coach at St. Francis High School from 1994-2003. During that time, Frisell said he faced all three of C-I’s coaches during that time, including the man who hired him – current activities director Mark Solberg and Bluejacket Hall of Fame coach George Larson, as well as Todd Larkin. Frisell’s biggest challenge will be to become familiar with the current C-I players in a relatively short period of time. The first day of practice for fall sports is just one month away, with the first game coming on Aug. 31, just 17 days after practice begins. “I will be relying very heavily on the returning coaches,” Frisell said. “They are a great group of guys who know the players very well, so I will look to them a great deal.” Frisell admitted that the short time frame won’t allow him to fully implement his own style of football this season. “I like to spread out the field and utilize multiple receivers with a balanced run/pass offense,” Frisell said. “But I understand completely that it would be impossible to make that big of changes this season. So we will stick with

SAME SCHOOL, NEW POSITION Getting familiar with the Vikings players won’t be the biggest challenge for their new coach, w who also was just officially hired a couple w weeks ago. Justin V Voss has spent the p past three years on tthe Viking sidelines, m most recently as last sseason’s defensive Voss coordinator. Instead, Voss’s biggest challenge will come in this being his first year as a head coach for a varsity team. But that doesn’t mean he enters with no credentials at all. Before joining the Vikings staff, Voss spent one year on the coaching staff at Macalester College, along with being on the coaching staff at Two Harbors High School. Voss will have to contend with the graduation of a number of key players from last year’s successful team, but he feels the returning players will fill in the holes nicely. “We are trying to continue to redefine North Branch football, and last year’s team took a big step (in that direction),” Voss said. “We will need to continue that.” Voss will also have the honor of leading the Vikings out onto their new home this fall on their still-under-construction artificial turf field, which is slated to be ready by their first home game on Aug. 31. “This season will be unique with the new field and the greater expectations,” Voss said.

On Monday, July 2, Cambridge resident Dean Wilson hit a hole-in-one on hole #9 at Grandy Nine Golf Course during Monday League play. Wilson used a 6 iron on the par 3, 130-yard hole and shared the experience with golfing partner Loren Christenson. Wilson, who golfs a few times a week, grew up in Stanchfield, graduated from Braham High School, and taught and coached in the Cambridge-Isanti school district. He will turn 81 in August.

what the Bluejackets have done in the past. But I will add a tweak or two throughout the season as the players and I get more familiar with each other.”

New head coaches named for teams BY BILL STICKELS III EDITOR@COUNTYSTAR.COM

There will be several “new” faces on the benches of Bluejacket varsity sports teams for the 20182019 season as five teams find themselves under new leadership. Of those new coaches, three hirings were made to current C-I assistant coaches, while two were offered to applicants from outside the district. Besides the football coaching position (see story this page) Cambridge-Isanti will have new people at the helm of both boys and girls hockey, boys golf and robotics. Cambridge alum and former Bluejacket hockey standout Jarad Ziebarth will be taking over the boys hockey team this winter. Ziebarth has been associated with Bluejacket hockey ever since his playing days in the Cambridge-Isanti Hockey Association. Ziebarth has also been a longtime teacher at CIHS. Ziebarth will be looking to rebuild a young team that amassed only four wins last season. For the girls team, Shannon Skelton will be taking over the reigns from Corey Bustrom. Skelton was previously an assistant coach for the team last season. Skelton will be looking to build upon a decent 2017-2018 season for CIMPC, which saw the Jackets go 18-8. When Mike Hennen took the position as new Forest Lake Activities Director, he not only vacated his head football coaching position, but also his varsity boys golf position. That vacancy was filled by longtime assistant coach Joel Lund. Lund will be tasked with guiding the team through a bit of a

rebuilding period that was started last season. The final vacancy, which was head coach of the Bluejacket Robotics team, was filled by Bob Miller. Miller comes to C-I as an industrial technology teacher. He takes over a team that has qualified for worlds in two out of its four years in existence. NEW VIKINGS COACHES North Branch will also have a few new faces at the start of the school year in the form of new football, girls soccer and gymnastics coaches. Josh Kopp will be taking over a strong Viking girls soccer team that has won the section championship two years in a row and who came in fourth in the 2017 Class A state tournament. The Vikings will be hoping for their thirdstraight section title while playing on their new, artificial turf home field, slated to be ready for them in early September. The head coaching position for the Viking gymnastics team has yet to be filled. Whoever is hired will be taking over a program that has been building to become a strong contender in Section 7A, but will also be looking at somewhat of a rebuilding season thanks to the graduation of All-State gymnast Keeley Ertl. However, the team will still have a solid foundation with three or four strong gymnasts remaining from last year’s squad. The final head coaching position, for the football team, was filled by Justin Voss. See the article on this page for more information on Voss’s hiring.

Puddle jumpin’: Play Inc recreates Gene Kelly classic CONTRIBUTED PLAY INC ARTS

This summer, Play Inc’s Junior High Theater Troupe is performing “Singin’ In The Rain” the weekend of July 20-22 with performers in grades 5-8. The musical is based on the classic Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. The story takes place during the transition from silent films to “talkies.” Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are big names in the film industry. Don’s experience in vaudeville with Cosmo Brown has him well-prepared for the transition to talking films, but helping Lina transition is much more difficult. Don meets Kathy Selden and the two fall in love as she begins doing work on Lina’s voice-overs. Relationships are formed and tested as everyone works to get the new Lockwood-Lamont film ready to open. Students from all over East Central Minnesota have been working hard on this show for the past two months. They’ve created costumes, practiced songs and learned choreography. Performances will be held at 7 p.m. on Friday, July 20, and Saturday, July 21, at the Hardy Performing Arts Center, Cambridge, and at a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday, July 22. Doors open half an hour before the show. Tickets are available online at www.playinconline.org as well as at the door.

Ask A Trooper: where does speed limit start? Question: When the speed limit is changing on a road, does the new speed limit start at the sign, or does it start when you can see the sign? Answer: The speed limit zone area becomes effective at the point you reach the sign. So if the speed limit sign/ zone changes to a slower speed, slow down before the sign and not after. If the speed limit changes to a higher speed, Ask a wait until you get to the increased Trooper speed limit sign Sgt. Neil before increasing your speed. Dickenson Each year, illegal or unsafe speed is a leading contributing

factor in Minnesota fatal crashes. To continue educating the public on the dangers of speed, law enforcement across Minnesota will conduct extra speed patrols July 6-22. On average, speed contributes to: · 82 deaths and 2,249 serious injuries each year (2012-2016). · 21 percent of all fatal crashes. · Speed-related crashes contributed to 106 deaths in the last five years (2013-2017) during Minnesota’s 100 deadliest days on the road (Memorial Day weekend-Labor Day). Speeding can lead to: · Greater potential for loss of vehicle control. · Increased stopping distance. · Decreased response time for crash avoidance. The most common speed limits are: 10 mph in alleys; 30 mph on

Scout & Morgan Books will welcome Ashley Shelby to the bookstore on Saturday, July 21, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. She will share from her debut novel “South Pole Station.” “Do you have digestion problems due to stress? Do you have problems with authority? Would you rather be a florist or a truck driver?” These are some of the questions that determine if you have what it takes to survive at the South Pole Station over the winter – a place that averages -54 degrees Fahrenheit and no sunlight for six months. “South Pole Station” reads like

a nonfiction journal of life at the bottom of the earth. Readers will be gripped by the characters, the climate and the writing of this award-winning young writer. Shelby’s novel has received The New York Post’s “Best Book of the Summer,” “Best Book of 2017” by Shelf Awareness, and The New York Times “Editor’s Pick” as a hardcover. Now it is being released in July as a paperback. Shelby’s fiction, essays and reviews have appeared in Slate, The New York Times Book Review, LitHub, the Los Angeles Review and more. She lives in the Twin Cities with her family. For more information on the event contact Judith Kissner at 763-689-2474.
