U.S. Congressman John Kline paid a visit to Inver Hills Community College on May 30 for a conversation with college leadership on the financial aid system, college readiness and cybersecurity.
The visit comes on the heels of the U.S. House passing Kline’s Smarter Solutions for Students Act (H.R. 1911), which promises to prevent subsidized Stafford loans from doubling on July 1 and offer a long-term, market-based solution to the student loan issue. Kline is chairman of the Education and the Workforce Committee.
The South St. Paul Public Library has 12 illustrated panels that have long circled the library’s fireplace room. In recent years the panels have become faded and almost illegible. Local artists of all ages now have an opportunity to help update the art by painting their interpretation of a story, folktale or book from any culture. Artists of all ages are invited to submit their panel designs on 23 x 30 templates (true-size templates available at the library).
Dakota County is making it easier to recycle more by expanding the list of items accepted at The Recycling Zone, located at 3365 Dodd Road in Eagan. Residents can now bring small household electrical items like toasters, vacuums and coffee makers to The Recycling Zone for free year-round.
