Demonstrating Against Drag Queen Story Hour at Rice Street Library October 1, 10:15 am

Rice Street Library is a welcome resource for families with children as they have a homework help center. 1011 Rice Street Saint Paul.


President John Adams once talked about our Country’s founding documents were from a moral people who were guided by their Christian Values they learned from Christian teachings. They created documents that governed our country and kept finite duties to the Federal Government and the people were to be governed by laws and their hearts. Our government is wholly inadequate for anything but a moral and religious people.

With that in mind how can a Library system allow groomers into a sensitive storybook hour?

It’s a society that has turned it’s back on Judeo-Christian Values and have allowed just about any desire in the dark heart of person who doesn’t know God.

Adams said about a country that isn’t a moral and religious people:

” this Country will be the most miserable Habitation in the World. Because we have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion.”

Would the St Paul Library System allow Christians to have a Christian Story Hour at the Library probably not in their misguided idea about the so called Separation of Church and State.

The principle of allowing anyone into the library is not in question but rather what immorality is allowed into it to influence or as they say “groom” children for sexual exploitation and gender confusion.  Here is what the Drag Story Hour is about from their own website.


At Saint Paul Public Library, we imagine a Saint Paul where all people feel seen, safe, and welcome.

Join us for Drag Story Hour, an event that blends traditional library storytime with drag performance. Drag Story Hour is an interactive, joyful program for children and their caring adults that celebrates expansive gender expression with stories, music, dance, laughter, and art.

In addition to storytime, there will be an opportunity for families to take photos with performers and do hands-on arts and crafts.

Drag Story Hour performances are created with empowering themes of resilience, kindness, and self-love.

Face masks are welcome but not required in library buildings.

Drag Story Hour is supported by grants and individual donations.


Demonstration Across the Street

Mikki Murray for Senate District 66 sent out a reminder the other day about having a demonstration across the street from Rice Street Library, (1011 Rice St).  This is mainly to not violate the Library Policies on disruptive behavior on the property or parking lot.

She suggests to get together around 10:15 am, roughly 15 minutes after the library opens but 15 minutes prior to this event.

As reported last week there was another event of this kind at the Arlington Community Center on Maryland & Payne Avenues.  There were many demonstrators there and many counter-demonstrators.

Be advised to be civil and to keep yourself safe. Also stay together.

 

Pothole Reporting in St Paul & Minneapolis Metro Area and on MN Highways

Potholes are a nuisance in the Twin Cities Metro Area

Potholes are everywhere in Minnesota where there is an asphalt surface.  They can form at any time of the year, but usually after Winter in the Springtime when a general thaw is in process.

We citizens complain about them, but if you don’t notify the proper city, county or state officials about a pothole you’re just as much the problem as the pothole is.  We admit from the numerous potholes out there the Public Works crews in St Paul and other parts of the state can’t know where all the potholes are at all times.  That is why your help is so vitally needed.

While we would love concrete roadways on priority streets everywhere in the State of Minnesota, concrete roads have issues too, just not always in the area of a pothole. They have cases where a slab of concrete will buckle upwards and ruin someone’s day.

Usually the pothole crews can fill in the potholes within a week after reporting them.  Remember to fill out the proper form at the links provided, however if you are reporting St Paul potholes you need to say the closest address the depth of the pothole and photos help when you send an email to the address provided below.

Here are some resources below to do that in Hennepin and Ramsey Counties, Saint Paul, Minneapolis, and along MN State Highways and Interstate freeways.


Potholes Reporting

Make a note of where exactly the pothole is (street address, highway & nearest mile marker), what the shape of it is, how deep it is.  If you can you can send a photo of it (if the web form allows you to send a photo).

How Does a Pothole Form?


Pothole reporting is something you can do when you go on walks around your neighborhood, or after you just hit a memorable pothole. If you do report it after you just drove over one, please pull to the side of the road then fill out the form, please do not drive and text.
