2022 Saint Paul Booya Schedule

Booya is a hearty stew cooked up in large cauldrons for fundraisers

Excerpts of  Jess Fleming’s article was Published on September 6, 2022


After the MN State Fair ends two seasons start, “Back to School,” and Booya.  The latter starts the weekend after Labor Day and usually runs to just before the General Election in November.

Booya might mean something to another part of the country but in the Upper Midwest it means a thick stew that is mixed and cooked up in a giant vat, or 55 gallon drum and served at non-profits and churches by the bowl until it’s gone.


If your organization is holding a Booya, please send your information to eat@pioneerpress.com, and Jess Fleming will add it to their list.

While Booyas are not political in nature, we’ll add an extra notation of what Minnesota House District in Saint Paul or a nearby suburb each Booya is located in case your House District group wants to meet there.

2022 Safe Summer Nights Flyer Schedule


Tom Campion started St Paul Summer Nights as he saw that it was important to have citizens who have a good relationship to the First Responders (Police & Fire Departments) in their city.

At a Safe Summer Night expect:

The SPPD and other First Responders have kid activities (climbing wall, bounce house, face painting) demonstrations by the Mounted Patrol, and sometimes the K-9 Unit, and what to do if there is a kitchen fire.  They will bring out the Bearcat “SWAT” vehicle.

There are free burgers, hot dogs, chips, healthy snacks, and beverages.

 


For more information please go to the St Paul Police Department’s Community Engagement Division website.

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.
