Posted on 07/18/14 at 08:06 am in response to National GOP promising 'significant' spending in Minnesota

A friend who grew up in Craig, Co, pointed out something about the area--it's near to Dinosaur National Monument, so the setting for Frey's presentation was near perfect.

I'm glad MinnPost is finally picking up this race. Readers can get an idea of campaign literature Frey has distributed here:

The county with the highest concentration of foreign-born residents is Nobles County, down in Southwestern Minnesota. Hennepin and Ramsey Counties follow, but then Watonwan County (South Central Minnesota) and Olmsted (not an "exurbia" of anything, but home to Minnesota's third largest city) in Southeast Minnesota.

What's up with that?

The McFeely post incorrectly states that Eric Harpel is the ex-chair of the McLeod County Republican Party. He remains chair, according to CD7 Republican party documents and other sources.

In the copy (second time MPR has recently misreported on law): "... Minnesota has new laws that prohibit silica sand mining within a mile of a trout stream in parts of the state."

This is simply factually incorrect: the mining operator needs to secure a permit from the DNR. There's no ban in place. The unwillingness of the Minnesotalegislature to ban mining by trout streams was widely reported last spring.

What's up with MPR being committed to reporting incorrect information...

Signage in the Upper Minnesota River Valley marking significant incidents in the 1862 United State-Dakota War already carries a WalMart logo tucked in a corner so rebranding trail is the next likely step....oy.

Hagedorn said it himself when he came in 4th in a four-person field seeking the GOP endorsement in 2010.

The bloom isn't as bright on Van Binsbergen as the NRCC might want us to believe. In addition to the 2006 run against Lyle Koenen, the Montvideo real estate and insurance agent unsuccessfully challenged former Minnesota representative Doug Peterson (now president of the Minnesota Farmers Union) in 1994.

Indeed, it seems like Van Binsbergen is something of a political cicada, emerging from the banks of the Minnesota River every ten years or so to run for office.

Posted on 07/19/13 at 06:28 pm in response to Will Dayton weigh in on swelling teacher-training controversy?

Where the author sees idealistic "service," some of us see ego-tourism in short stints in classrooms, as well as the patronizing notion that--merely by being the graduate of an elite university and gracing a room with his or her presence--the temporary visitor can so improve the lives of the lesser classes.

Heaven forbid that the millions wealth American have invested in this sort of claptrap could ever be put in the hands of neighborhood-based education groups for real, long-term...

Posted on 07/01/13 at 03:18 pm in response to Brodkorb tape recordings could add pressure for settlement

The headline seems designed to cement low information twitter notion that Brodkorb's got something to bargain with. Body of article suggests otherwise. Fascinating.
