Art Installation and Community Dinner Event on Jan 7

Seeking dinner guests for a unique art installation/community dinner experience, At the Table, on Sat, Jan. 7 at 6pm at the Art Colony.  

"At the Table" is a full dining installation and performance piece by bowl turner Jim Sannerud that comes to life through a shared dinner experience. Inspired by Scandinavian design from his ancestral farm in Norway, Jim hand-crafted three large backdrop panels, a large table, chairs, and serving vessels with the intention to create dialogue about place, memory and traditions. The installation is on display and open to the public Dec 29-January 7 from 9am-4pm.

The exhibit will culminate with a shared dinner "At the Table" of eight randomly selected community members. Participants will be asked to bring a dish to share that is accompanied by a story. The food will act as a conversation piece for each individual and open a dialogue about place, memory, and how traditions are translated.  

There is no cost for this event (other than your shared dish). Space is limited. Please contact the Art Colony if you are interested in participating by December 15.

Truth in Taxation meeting draws large crowd to county courthouse

Fri, 12/02/2016 - 11:06am

It was a packed house at the Cook County Courthouse Thursday night Dec. 1, as more than 20 people addressed the Board of Commissioners to share a mix emotions and thoughts on property tax increases and the 2017 county budget.

The commissioners’ room was full before the 6 p.m. start time on Thursday, and became a standing room only as the Truth in Taxation meeting began.

Many of the sentiments addressed to the commissioners and several members of county staff from the public focused on the fact high property taxes were problematic for local residents. 

Cook County residents began receiving their proposed 2017 tax statements toward the end of November. The proposed increase for Cook County is currently at 19.88%. A final levy and budget must be adopted on or before December 28.

There were moments of strong emotion during Thursday’s Truth in Taxation meeting, including boos from the crowd, raucous applause, stories of families struggling to make ends meet and those simply stating they might have to move away from Cook County due to the high cost of living. On the other side of the equation, there were those who reasoned both during the meeting and in statements sent to WTIP that the assessed value of local properties was a key source of the cause of the increase in property taxes, and that citing percentage increases rather than actual dollar amounts were a means of sensationalizing the actual amount of property tax increases in Cook County.

The next meeting of the Cook County Commissioners is Tuesday, Dec. 13. 


HELP FIND CHOPPER! 25 pound black dog missing

A coworker's dog went missing last night! His name is Chopper.  He is black with tan markings, and weighs about 25 pounds (he is a Jack Russell/Pug/Dachshund mix - very distinctive looking!)  He broke off his leash and was heading east of town in the dark. If you see him, call Carolyn at 218-370-1611, or 387-2396.  You may also contact the sheriff's office. Also, he loves to go for rides, and you may get him into your vehicle with "Choppy, wanna go for a ride?"
