Office Outpost is open for business

Wed, 07/20/2016 - 11:01am

An interesting new facility has opened in the Grand Marais Municipal building on Broadway Avenue. The space that once housed the Grand Marais Tourist Information Center, but was vacant for about a year, has been repurposed to a stylish and welcoming workspace. It is now the Office Outpost, a telework space in the heart of Grand Marais. On Tuesday, July 12, a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house was held to introduce the coworking concept to the public.

After the ribbon cutting, the doors were opened for tours. Visitors were surprised at the transformation from a noisy, poster-bedecked information center to a quiet and clean space with 11 workstations. Bob Pranis of the Cook County Broadband Commission was pleased to explain that the Office Outpost is the perfect place for someone on vacation who wants to do a little bit of work on his or her laptop or a local entrepreneur who needs to get out of a noisy house to work for a few hours a week in a spot with high-speed Internet, access to a professional printer/scanner/copier and a Keurig coffee station.

Small Business Development Center Representative Pat Campanaro added that others might want to take advantage of the sunny conference room that will hold eight people or the private room with video conferencing capabilities.

One of the best things, explained Pranis, is that the facility with its amenities is open 24/7. Individuals wanting to use the space can visit the Office Outpost website on their smart phones for information. After paying the fee and downloading a free Kisi app, they are able to unlock and enter to get to work whenever they want.

Use of the facility is fee-based, with use plans running the gambit—$5 for just an hour; $25 for a day; $75 per week or $150 for a month.

The response so far has been positive. A meeting held this spring brought about 25 people out to learn more. Several have already signed up to use the space, said Pranis.

Primary ballots can confuse mail recipients

Wed, 07/20/2016 - 4:48am

A general look of confusion crossed the faces of many Cook County postal patrons when they found a Primary Ballot in their mail boxes recently. The State Legislature changed Minnesota’s caucus system back to a primary system, but that won’t happen until the next partisan election.

When the ballot is opened there are just three names, all for Associate Justice to the Minnesota Supreme Court. Typically justices are not household words, but in this case at least two of the names may sound vaguely familiar if you follow the news.

The incumbent is Natalie Hudson. She is one of three women on the court and the only black justice. She was appointed by Gov. Mark Dayton in October of 2015. Prior to that she served on the Court of Appeals, appointed by then Gov. Jesse Ventura and subsequently elected twice.

Michelle MacDonald is a private practice attorney and until recently served as a Conciliation Court judge in Hennepin County. In 2014 she was a Supreme Court Candidate endorsed by the Republican Party. She was in the news in June 2014 when it was discovered she had been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and resisting arrest in 2013. The revelation came less than two weeks after party delegates in Rochester endorsed MacDonald to run against Justice David Lillehaug.

The third candidate is Craig Foss, about which little is known publicly. The Secretary of State’s office lists his residence in St. Paul, he has no website. There is a Craig Foss listed in private practice in St. Paul, a Craig Foss who is a corporate council in Minneapolis and a third practicing in Alexandria.

According to Cook County Auditor-Treasurer Braidy Powers, who oversees elections here, the primary will cost the county in the neighborhood of $15,000. A minimum of three election judges will be at each of two polling places – the courthouse and the community center. A full complement of election judges – 22 minimum – will work the mail ballots on primary night, August 9.
Powers said at the very least the primary will serve as a dry run for the November 8 General Election.
