First, Dan Schoen did the right thing by resigning his post in the Minnesota Senate. Second, I was distraught by the news about the claims of sexual harassment as I have supported and defended Schoen for five years. Since my childhood, I have experienced harassment in many different places and venues as a disabled man and believe harassment to be wrong and disgusting.
I want to congratulate Heather Hirsch on her win for a two-year seat on the District 833 School Board. I want to thank all those who supported me in my campaign that came up just short. I hope that the new members of the school board will consider some of the issues that I raised in the campaign, most importantly, the need to take more seriously the growing problem of chronically disruptive behavior and the very troubling effects this is having in our classrooms.
Four juveniles were reported in a backyard in the 700 block of 21st Street Nov. 4. They fled down the street. It was unknown what they were doing. Assault A 43-year-old man was reportedly assaulted by three unknown males Nov. 1 in the 1800 block of 10th Avenue. The man was bleeding, but did not require medical help. The man later left with his sister. Property damage
A garage in the 1400 block of Ashland Avenue was tampered with Oct. 24, leaving a large dent. No items were missing, and there were no suspects. Theft An 11-year-old male reportedly took various items and $40 from a St. Paul Park resident Oct. 27.
I would love to inform people of St. Paul Park about my experience with BNSF. It doesn't seem to be the same impression Sandi Dingle, Patrick Downs or Andrew Cison had. I read the recent article in the Bulletin paper and wondered how much conversation they have had with BNSF about their plans.
Our public schools are the backbone of our communities. Caring, dedicated educators help students be their best selves and prepare tomorrow's workforce. Our communities thrive when we invest in our children's future. District 833 teachers and students need our support in the upcoming election. Please vote "yes" on all three ballot questions so small class sizes and excellent instructional programs continue. Show up and make your voice heard on Nov. 7 for our kids and our future.
A 22-year-old Tyler Wylie of Woodbury was arrested on suspicion of assault and disorderly conduct Oct. 15, after a fight outside Park Place Bar. Wylie reportedly made unwanted sexual advances toward a woman at the bar, leading to a fight between him and a 35-year-old Dickinson, N.D. man, according to the report. He alleged punched him in the face and was found shirtless outside the bar by officers around 1:30 a.m. The fight is still under investigation.
A 26-year-old Cottage Grove woman was cited for shoplifting Oct. 11 at Kohl's, 7990 Hardwood Ave.
A 51-year-old Cottage Grove man was arrested Aug. 26 on suspicion of domestic assault following an altercation with his 16-year-old son. Police said they were pushing and shoving each other when Vaidich allegedly put the juvenile in a headlock before the teen escaped and called police. The man was booked at the Washington County jail.
Recently, Congressman Jason Lewis responded to a small group of peaceful protesters who gathered outside his Woodbury residence by labelling them "dangerous." Lewis then defamed and threatened them on social media. For their part, the protesters wanted to ask Lewis to fight against cuts to Medicaid and health insurance, and to hold a public meeting for the people he represents. The real danger was not the protesters; it's Lewis. He is treating our precious democracy like it's his own private monarchy.
