Upate, Noon: I contacted Northfield City Hall and got a prompt reply from City Administrator Nick Haggenmiller who wrote:
“I’m told our CSO [Community Service Officer] responded to a complaint noting the bike had been located there all winter. About a week ago, he put a sign on requesting the bike to be moved within 48 hours. Today as you well documented the bike was removed and is being held at the police station if/when its owner steps forward to claim it.”
These women were blocking my view of downtown Northfield from my corner window office at Tandem Bagels last week. And one of them was a paparazzi and a few were just complaining about how kids were knocking down dekkreoler stands out on the street. Among them: Mary Wood, Linelle Olson, and Jane McWilliams.
LoGro has mostly been dormant since early 2013 as I’ve focused on other things, mainly my blogging at Mountain Bike Geezer and CROCT (Cannon River Offroad Cycling & Trails).
But it’s back, with a slightly different focus.
I’ll continue to feature my photography of people, scenes, and events around Northfield. I’ll probably add more videos.
But I won’t be featuring my Northfield-related opinions related to local government (City, School District, County) as my consulting work (here and here) makes that a conflict of interest. I probably will shine a neutral light on current issues as a moderator of live web conferences with community leaders. And I’m open to having opinionated guess bloggers.
So I’ll be experimenting. Contact me if you’ve got ideas, feedback, or an interest in contributing an issue-related guest blog post.
And about those Google AdSense ads on the sidebars of the individual blog posts, Categories, and Archives? I’m also experimenting. In the meantime, the measly revenue helps to support my local economic development activity at local pubs, coffeehouses, and bicycle shops.
