CenterStage MN Concert to feature The Honeydogs

The Reif Center is the place to be on the third Thursday of the month as the CenterStage MN music series continues to fill the house of the Ives Studio theater. January’s feature is The Honeydogs playing Thursday, January 19th, at 7:30pm. The CenterStage MN series, presented in partnership with KAXE Northern Community Radio, is about bringing Minnesota-based bands – particularly from the metro area – to greater Minnesota. Not only is it good exposure for the bands, but for Reif and KAXE patrons, it’s an opportunity to hear fresh, original music coming out of our own great state.

Kari Hedlund, Music Director for KAXE, who curated the series, said the following about The Honeydogs, “They’re probably one of the most underrated bands in the Twin Cities. The group has been around for a long time, since the beginning of the indie rock craze in the 90s.”

The Honeydogs have been making music together for 20 years. They came out with their 11th studio release in April of 2016. This release, called “Love & Cannibalism” explores varied musical styles including psychedelia, experimental, and jazz, while staying true to the bands roots in American music.

Crosslake Council debates city engineer appointment

In its first meeting of the new year, the Crosslake City Council met Jan. 9 and tabled appointment of the city engineer, opting to request bids from several engineering firms.

Widseth Smith Nolting (WSN) has been Crosslake’s city engineer for 20 years. Some council members said that rather than accepting WSN’s bid, which was the only one it had received, the council should look at bids from several engineering firms before making a decision.

City attorney Brad Person suggested appointing a city engineer for routine items and questions, so that staff has a contact in the event they need one. For larger projects, though, he said the council could take bids for services from several firms and then make a decision. Mayor Patty Norgaard said she felt the city engineer is the glue that holds the city’s small projects together.

6th Annual Uppgaard WMA Christmas Bird Count

The 6th Annual Uppgaard WMA Christmas Bird Count was held on December 31, 2016. The count circle has a 15 mile radius centered at Ideal Corners and covers much of the Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway. Other areas included are Breezy Point, Crosslake and Pequot Lakes. The Uppgaard Wildlife Management Area (WMA) which the count is named after has always been an area of interest but due to recent logging it wasn’t surveyed.

This was the 117th Christmas Bird Count season making it the longest running citizen science projects in the country. Audubon is the major supporter where all the data is collected and analyzed to help protect birds and their habitat. A new technology tool was available this year an app called “count circle” which told you where you were in the circle. A great tool to have when approaching the edge of the count circle and to let you know if that bird you have been searching for all day is “in” or “out”.
