Great Support for Cuyuna in Senate Hearing
St. Paul, MN – The Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Crew was well represented at the final hearing of the legislative session to fund the expansion of the mountain bike system in the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area (CCSRA) on the evening of Tuesday, April 14. The Senate Subcommittee on Legacy heard testimony on SF 701, authored by Senator Carrie Ruud (R-Breezy Point). The bill would utilize Legacy dollars from the Park and Trail Fund for the first phase of the Master Vision for the system.
“We appreciate all the opportunities the legislature has provided to come and share the great work that is happening in Cuyuna, and the great ideas that are coming forth from our region,” said Aaron Hautala, president of the Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Crew. “We are excited and enthusiastic about the future of Cuyuna and it is important to show our desire to leave a strong legacy.” The next step is for the Legislature to act on the request, which is expected sometime next week.

New Signs installed for Outing Volunteer Library
Thanks to a generous discount from DJ Hall Signs, a generous donation from the Lakers Lions, the Outing Area Chamber of Commerce, and several large individual donations, the Outing Volunteer Library was able to commission two signs for the local library.
One of the signs can be seen from Woods Bay Drive and the other from Highway 6. Many people have said they didn’t know there was a library in Outing, so with the assistance of these beautiful signs people will be directed to the library’s location.
The Outing Volunteer library has a collection of 15,600 items to check out from baby board books to movies both in VHS and DVD formats, Large Print books, music CD’s, and fiction and non-fiction books for ages 5-6 all the way through adults.
