The core of our King Park Little Kids Soccer Program is to have a cadre of “parent-coaches”, trained in the teaching games, available for leading on any of 8 to 10 Saturdays from mid-June to mid-August. You don’t have to be there all Saturdays, just the ones you are town. With approximately 15 parent-coaches total available, we have enough coaches available for any given session. Are you interested in supporting this program?
If so, Please send a note quickly to firstname.lastname@example.org with a “Yes for King Park Summer Soccer” in the memo line and KFNA will get you more information directly from the Volunteer Coordinator of this program. The program provides a training session (maybe two different option days this spring) in the games by Sheila McGill, the University of St. Thomas Women’s Soccer Coach, in late May or early June.
What is a Little Free Library? It’s a “take a book, return a book” gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories. In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share.
Are you a host home to a little free library? If so, we would love to hear from you! We are working to plan a fun event to showcase all of the wonderful libraries in the Kingfield Neighborhood, and would be thrilled to include yours! Send your contact information to Cheryl@Kingfield.org

Facts: On 04/11/2014, at approximately 10:07 am, an elderly female and her husband were walking eastbound on 36th Street from Garfield, when a lone male suspect ran up from behind the female, knocking her down to the ground without saying anything. He tried to grab her purse but was unsuccessful. The male then ran southbound in the alley, and was seen getting into a grey Hyundai. The vehicle has been located, and the case has been assigned to the MPD Robbery Unit. If you have any suspect information please contact Sgt. Wally Carlson at (612) 673-3856.

Some safety tips to keep in mind:
- When outdoors, stay alert to your surroundings. Be aware of who may be approaching you. If you use an IPod or other earphones, keep the sound at a minimum to help you hear people approaching.
- Trust your feelings and act on them. If you feel uncomfortable about a specific person or group of people approaching you keep your distance, and, if appropriate, leave the area.
- Be alert to individuals who approach you asking for the time, directions, a match, etc. This is a common ploy used by assailants to distract you as they get close enough to attack.
- Be alert to how close people get to you and keep your distance from potential attackers.
- Use strong body language by walking with confidence and purpose. Keep your head up and don’t look distracted. Attackers look for people who do not appear to be paying attention to their surroundings.
If you are out at night:
- Use the buddy system.
- Travel in well-used areas.
- Walk and jog in well-lit areas.
- If you think someone is following you, switch directions and walk to a lighted home, business, or where there are other people.
- Draw attention to yourself or a potential attacker by using loud verbal commands, a screech alarm, or both.
- Call 911 immediately to report any cries for help and suspicious activity.
