Roundup

See the Declaration of Indepence in Saint Paul. An original printing will be on display for public viewing at Saint Paul City Hall/Ramsey County Courthouse, September 2-4. (via Saint Paul-itics)

MPR: Ramsey County creates gas siphoning report line. To which I say, “Isn’t that what the non-emergency police line is for?” Enh, just program it into your phone, I guess. That phone number is not actually included in the MPR story and I could not find it on Ramsey County’s website, so I’m assuming it’s not actually set up yet and suggest you just call the county in the mean time (651-266-8500). There is, however a nice Gather video demonstration of gas siphoning.

Twin Cities Streets for People has the scoop on the Streetcar Feasibility Study that was presented to Minneapolis City Council in January. In case you need it laid out for you in plain English, or in case you missed it the first time around (or both). I’m sloooowly coming around to the idea that, much as I like shiny trains and still firmly believe that the metro needs a comprehensive LRT system, there is a lot of opportunity in adequately funding and fleshing out our bus system and bringing back streetcars.

TC Biz Journal: I still can’t wrap my brain around this Denny Hecker/electric car thing. Just like my brain shorts when I see a bus drive by with Denny Hecker’s mug on it. (Y’all know I’ve been scarred by Denny.)

Northstar News and Updates: “Northstar Commuter Rail achieved another milestone recently when the first locomotive rolled off the production line.”

MPLS Mirror goes to the Lake Street Festival and Art Car Parade. Photos and video!

Lake Street Exhibit Now on Display at Midtown Global Market

It seems the “Right on Lake Street” exhibit created by Macalester students in conjunction with the Minnesota Historical Society has moved from the Minnesota History Center and is now at the Midtown Global Market!

I wish I had known. I wouldn’t have spent the $10 to see it at the History Center. It was cramped together in a room that was kind of hard to find.

The exhibit itself is pretty cool. Lots of paper-mache and cardboard and paint and stuff. It’s a history/art project. I bet it views a helluva lot better at the MGM. And, you know, you’re actually right there on Lake Street. There’s an interactive exhibit online as well, but the real thing is much cooler.

So pop over to the MGM to see it. And to eat.
