District 622 looks to double per-pupil spending

Levy increase would bring district in line with metro average
District 622 leaders are looking to double per-pupil spending in the district at the start of the 2016-2017 school year. Voters will likely see two questions on the ballot in November, asking for approval of an operating levy increase of $900 per pupil, and a $3 million capital projects levy. The capital projects levy would be used to fund the purchase, installation, and maintenance of software and technology for classroom instruction. Both levy proposals are for a period of 10 years.

Ride to start and end at Neumann’s
From his post at Neumann’s, longtime bartender Frank Kohler has forged camaraderie with a number of locals and city employees -- including the late North St. Paul Police Officer Richard Crittenden.
Kohler says Crittenden was very strict, but also knew how to joke around and have fun.
“I used to have spiky hair,” Kohler says, setting up a story about the time Crittenden ran up to him, asking if he was scared.
“He had a laugh like a tickled bear -- this belly laugh,” Kohler recalls.
