Northfield Mayor Mary Rossing presented at an NDDC forum this morning, discussing, as noted in Ross’ NDDC blog post, “the City of Northfield’s plans for financing the Capital Improvement Plan and [the] work to address the budget shortfall in the 2010 budget and a similar challenge for the 2011 budget.”
I’ve been a fan of ‘separated at birth’ since the days of Spy Magazine, so when I saw Northfield Mayor Mary Rossing in the HideAway Coffeehouse and Winebar last week with someone who looked somewhat like her, I paused. It turns out, her sister Jane Rossing (a regular visitor to LoGroNo, she contends) was paying a visit to Northfield. On the right: a current favorite ‘separated at birth.’
Let it not be said that shopping in downtown Northfield is strictly a highbrow experience. To wit, see this educational display at Present Perfect. That our mayor is the purveyor of this type of material is, IMHO, impressive. I plan to get my Xmas shopping done early this year.
