Report a problem to the City of Saint Paul

Report a problem, ie. Graffiti, pothole, street lights, traffic signals, down trees to the city of Saint Paul by using this link: http://www.stpaul.gov/contact.html

I have tried calling but have found submitting issues on line to be VERY effective and fast! i.e. I submitted the issue of 2 potholes on Galtier and within 24 or 48 hours they were filled. I also reported weeds on the sidewalks on the horseshoe park and they were pulled/removed.

Here is the link to submit: http://www.stpaul.gov/contact.html

National Night Out

NATIONAL NIGHT OUT

On the first Tuesday of every August, National Night Out is celebrated nationwide. The
Saint Paul Police Department encourages you and your neighbors to get together on this
date each year to take a stand against crime and drugs in your neighborhood. We feel
that by getting to know your neighbors you are able to help build a stronger community,
help reduce crime, and build a relationship with neighbors that will nurture willingness to
report suspicious activity in our city.

The 22nd annual National Night Out (2005) was the biggest year yet for the city of Saint
Paul. The National Association of Town Watch (NATW) awarded us with the top award
in the nation for a city with the population 100,000 – 299,999 for participation, unique
events, and overall community involvement. It is the first time that Saint Paul ranked #1
and we plan to continue this high rating for years to come with the help of residents who
plan events citywide.

Either plan to have a neighborhood event in the daytime, evening or whenever it fits with
your neighbors! This can include hosting things like sharing a potluck dinner together,
planning games and activities, or as simple as having root beer floats or lemonade
together. Another way to promote safety and crime prevention is to turn your outside
lights on from dusk to dawn on the evening of National Night Out to show your support.

For more information on National Night Out nationwide, visit the web site of the
National Association of Town Watch www.natw.org . To find out more or to plan an
event in your neighborhood, call or email Pam McCreary at 651-266-5625 or
pam.mccreary@ci.stpaul.mn.us

What do gardens commit to when they participate in the Parade?

Commit by June 9, submit a description of your garden (a mere 100 words)
To have a good-looking and inviting garden on August 19th

Anyone ever use the mechanic shop across the street on Como? I need to take my car somewhere close as it kills whenever it idles.

Head count of FFL Blog users

While I think this is an awsome idea, I think we need to assume not everyone will be using/reading this blog. As a result, I think it is important to take a head count of the people who have visited.

Please just post, and maybe mention how you would like to use the blog:

As for myself, I will post things around town that I am involved in or are of particular interest for the community.

Cheers,

General Community Announcements

Loft 102 wishes to make two announcements

1) On Saturday March 25 we will be holding our 13th Cows Come Home Party (a private Party). IF we get to loud please let us know and we will tell our herd to lower the Mooosing.

2) On Sunday 26 we will be holding a public gathering in behalf of two of our friends outside of the co-op George and Anne Wilner. These two friends are Watkin's distributors and are inviting you all to attend a tasting party to promote the Watkins line of extracts and cooking resources. This has the theme of: A Taste of Pizza. Pizzas of the following varieties will be presented: Breakfast Pizza, vegetarian Pizza, Traditional Pizza, and Dessert Pizza.

The event will run from 2 until 4 pm and our front door will simply be open for you to wander in to join us.
