What's Next for Veteran's Memorial Park

Preparations continue on the construction of the North St. Paul Veteran's Memorial Park project. In May, Governor Mark Dayton signed the state bonding bill, which included $100,000 in state money for the project. Those funds, plus a $9,900 State Legacy grant, will be added to the more than $97,000 raised by the Veteran's Committee through the sales of paver blocks - bringing the total, combined project funding to date to more than $205,000. Through June 30, the Committee had sold nearly 430 individual pavers and more than 30 corporate sponsor pavers.
The law authorizing the bond funding requires a local match, which may include both cash as well as in-kind services. The City must also enter into a formal funding agreement with the Department of Administration; the agency overseeing the funding. City staff is working alongside members of the Veteran's Committee to satisfy all match and bidding requirements and documentation needs of the State to keep the project moving forward. At a minimum, the committee is looking to purchase and engrave the pavers, granite wall panels and entrance statue yet this year and begin construction next spring. On the possible construction delay, Committee member Tom Trost recently told the City Council the current effort, triggered by the state funding, would enable the Committee and City to showcase a completed project rather than building it in phases - even if it meant starting construction in the spring.
The Veterans Committee is a joint effort of the American Legion Post 39, VFW Post 1350, North High Air Force JROTC and the City of North St. Paul. More information contact go to

The Veterans Park Committee is finalizing the artwork and information needed on the Memorial Wall portion of the monument. A list is being compiled of the North Saint Paul Area Veterans (postal zip code 55109) who were listed by the Department of Defense as being Killed in Action, Missing In Action and/or Prisoners of War from all conflicts and time periods. We are asking the public to provide those Veterans' names that they believe to be included on the Memorial Wall. Please contact Joe Zakrzewski, Committee Secretary, at 651-773-8526 or with your information.

Educational & Interactive Information about Emerald Ash Borer

During the car show on July 25, there will be a presentation created in collaboration with University of Minnesota course OLPD 5204: Designing the Adult Education Program, the city of North St. Paul, and the Resilient Communities Project (RCP).

Through participating in the presentation, North St. Paul residents will be able to identify ash trees, similar tree species, EAB larvae and adult beetles, signs of emerald ash borer, and will also learn the various management steps they may take to treat or remove ash trees on their private property.

This relaxed presentation incorporates an informal presentation, followed by an interactive time with participants during which they may handle samples of EAB adults and larvae, ash trees, and similar tree species. A trivia game is also available if participants want to test their knowledge. After the presentation, there will be plenty of time for questions and participants will be given a checklist of steps to follow to assess their own trees at home.

For more information on this contact Carolina or Julia at 507-261-4284.

Tip of the Month:

Following the old adage that "if it sounds too good to be true it probably is" comes the news that regular, proper care and maintenance are what really keep vehicles going into the high six-figure mileage ranges. Miracle cures, magic fairy dust, mystery polymers and the like are all fine and good for infomercials, but most likely won't do much good for your vehicle.
We all know somebody "wink, wink" with an older, high-mileage vehicle that just keeps on running year after year---The secret is that there is no real secret to getting a vehicle to last a long time. The difference is maintenance. Regular fluid checks and an almost pious dedication to scheduled lubrication will keep the powertrain going strong. What kind of oil, brake fluid, and grease used is just as important as when it is changed. The best oil in the world will do your engine no good if you never change it. Cleaning and protecting the finishes of the vehicle inside and out will keep things looking good. Paint, plastic, leather, and fabric need help to survive the constant assault of sun and elements. Utilize both of these plans together and you, like your Crazy Uncle Fred, will enjoy happy motoring for a good, long time.
