There is nothing more magical than bringing together scores of people for a 3-hour Rube Goldberg event. In 2013 the theme will be chemical causation. This means that we will be really happy if your portion of the causation machine contains a simple or elaborate chemical reaction as part of its mechanical operation.
We will provide a bunch of links with useful chemistry ideas in a few weeks. But, it is never to early to start thinking about contraptions.
Friday, January 4

Live in Kingfield and work from home? Need to stretch those legs on these long cold winter days? Come meet other neighbors who also work from their homes in our neighborhood!
KFNA and several home-based business owners have come together to host this event. Our intention is to gain a deeper understanding of the needs of home-based businesses and to generate ideas about how we can together strengthen our neighborhood, the local economy, and our Kingfield network of smaller, entrepreneurial businesses… as well as build relationships between neighbors! Come, share your ideas, and hear others during this important home-based business development launch. Whether you own your own business or work for someone else, if you’re working from your Kingfield home, we want you to join us!
Registration is limited. To learn more and register or contact email@example.com or 612.823.5980 or even better!, visit the Facebook Event and sign up there! We will post a pre-event survey in January to gather your initial information on needs and ideas for home based businesses via the Facebook page.

I was recently promoted to Assistant Chief of Police and will be leaving the 5th Precinct. Chief Harteau has set an ambitious and progressive agenda for the department, and I’m looking forward to being a part of her executive staff. It has been an honor working with you, and I feel we made real progress in connecting the 5th Precinct. and the southwest community. Reducing crime and promoting public safety are the principles behind our work at the Minneapolis Police Department. I’m happy to say that the 5th Precinct. had the city’s greatest reduction for violent crime in 2012 (a reduction of over 18%)! There will always be work to do as we strive for greater crime reductions. Thank you for your partnership and collaboration.
Inspector Tony Diaz will be taking my place at the 5th Precinct. He has been with the 5th Precinct. for three years and has a comprehensive background in law enforcement. I am very pleased and confident in Chief Harteau’s appointment of Inspector Diaz. He is the right person to continue the important community and police connections we rely upon at the 5th Precinct. Please join me in congratulating Inspector Diaz and supporting the MPD as we move the department forward.
Assistant Chief Matt Clark Minneapolis Police Department
