Neighborhood News

This month we take a look at LNA’s Crime and Safety Committee, formerly known as Crime & Drug Committee

Focus:  Working on public safety issues in the Lyndale neighborhood.

What they do:  LNA’s Crime and Safety committee works to improve public safety in the neighborhood. 

Some of their current projects include:

El domingo, 14 de septiembre los vecindarios de Lyndale y Kingfield darán la bienvenida a miles de personas a nuestra comunidad como parte del evento de Calles Abiertas de Nicollet. Esta es una oportunidad emocionante de presentar la Avenida Nicollet y otras cosas buenas que pasan en nuestros vecindarios.

Betchya didn’t know the Market on Grand is on the official Party Bus line. At least it was a few weeks ago, when a busload-o-half-in-the-bag design firm employees stopped in to scoop up an armload of totally unhealthy snacks. Oh, and to give their former coworker buddy (accounting-guy-turned-entrepreneur) a big ole Terr-bear hug. (Line out the door for that!)

While pretty much raiding the entire store, the downtown Minneapolis-based FAME team loaded up on, well, a lot of things. Store security cameras show them (from a not-very-flattering angle) chowing on Magnum Bars, popsicles, pork rinds, salt water taffy, Bugles, candy necklaces, beef jerky and an obscenely large pickle in a bag. (Yes, they know better. Please do not report this incident to their parents.)

El martes 5 de agosto, otra vez, Minneapolis impuso el record con el número más grande de fiestas para la Noche Nacional del Convivir Afuera en todo el país. En Lyndale, los miembros comunitarios celebraron en todo el vecindario.

En las tres torres, alrededor de 500 personas pasaron por la fiesta para comer hamburguesas y saltar en el castillo de juego. La fiesta atrajo a vecinos de cuadras alrededor. En casi todas la cuadras que se podrían cerrar en Lyndale (no la Nicollet, la Blaisdell o la 1a Avenida), los vecinos cerraron su calle para compartir una comida y una buena conversación. Los vecinos se juntaron para celebrar en sus patios cuando no pudieron cerrar la calle.

As the Program Assistant for the Women’s Leadership Program, Teresa Saucedo works with the program facilitator to help explain information for the sessions to participants, assists in program activities, helps to shape the agendas, and is working up to facilitating more sessions.  During a recent program session, Teresa led the discussion and shared her story, talking about an Aunt that inspired her to become more involved in civic life.  Her Aunt’s engagement in politics and civic life provided a strong foundation for Teresa to become involved in the community. 

Durante este último mes, Lyndale empezó a trabajar en la campaña de la Votación de Nicollet. La meta de este proyecto es aumentar a la cantidad de personas que votan en esta elección no presidencial de 57% al 65% en los vecindarios de Lyndale, Kingfield, Stevens Square y Whittier y además tener más de mil conversaciones con miembros comunitarios sobre que les importa en su vecindario. El proyecto se va a hacer con presencia en eventos comunitarios, registro de votantes, llamadas y treinta y dos tocados de puertas en los vecindarios.  

Business Notes are short updates about what’s happening with Lyndale area businesses.

It is time to repot houseplants, increased light during spring and summer may have caused some of your plants to put on enough new growth that they require larger containers. The rule of thumb is to choose pots only one size bigger than the one they are in. Too large a pot increases the soil amount and it will stay wet longer and may make the roots suffer.

Pick a pot with a drain hole and cover the hole with a small rock or piece of broken pottery, this helps keep the soil in and allows excess water to drain out.  Add fresh potting soil, transfer the plant-roots, soil and all into the pot-then gently firm more potting soil between the root ball and the sides of the container.  If the soil is not pressed in, the water will run out and not soak the entire soil mass.

LNA has an incredible opportunity to be awarded support for a new community garden and Lyndale’s Food Share program through the Wedge’s WedgeShare program.  Founded in 1997, the Wedge Board of Directors created the charitable giving program based on Cooperative principle #7, Concern for Community.  Presently the Wedge makes WedgeShare grants in amounts up to but not exceeding $10,000 to select organizations that are working to create a sustainable future.

Talking to Charles Haire at the neighborhood Dunn Brothers about adults with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) it was clear that he is a force to be reckoned with.  His nonstop positive energy and outlook is fueled by his refusal to be a victim of this disorder.  After many years of searching in frustration for the source of his problems of behavior and health, and being told “No – we cannot find any source for Fetal Alcohol Syndrome”, he was recently diagnosed with it.
