Next for Veteran's Memorial Park
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 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 www.northstpaul.net.
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 email@example.com

of the Month:
you put the car away, make sure you spend time cleaning out the storage area.
In the case of a garage, sweep the floor, to make sure you get rid of any traces
of dust, dirt and animals, insects or rodents, as the latter often like to make
classic cars their home during winter. It's also preferable to store the car in
a place where it will remain relatively undisturbed during the winter months-someplace
where the door isn't being constantly opened and closed and daily driven cars
aren't regularly being parked in the same location. The latter is particularly
bad, because if said vehicles are used in the snow and slush, parking them in
the garage overnight, leaves excessive amounts of salt and moisture behind, which
provide the ideal environment for things to start rusting.
Even if the car
is parked in garage with a concrete or laminated floor, a good idea is to place
plastic sheeting, or at the very least, old carpet on the floor, over the area
where your classic will be stored. This will reduce the risk of moisture rising
from the floor, which can cause rusting on the car's underbelly, exhaust, suspension,
brake and driveline components. If you can afford it, a drive-on car cocoon that
completely encases the car and zips up like a tent is a very good idea, as it
makes for a dry, virtually moisture free sealed chamber while the car is in storage.
To prevent further moisture and critters from making in-roads, make sure you fill
the ends of the tailpipes with oily rags, or preferably, steel wool.
