The state shuts down, but for some, business is up

Not everyone was shut out with the shutdown. Some outlets stand to benefit from the government standstill, and many are across the state border.

Just another example of how Dayton is sending more MN people away. Think of all the revenue lost due to his inability to do his job. It is sad to see that he isn't keep the profitable portions of the state open while he plays games with this. It is hard to fault MN residents who want to enjoy this holiday week end. WI is not complaining one bit about the boost they are getting from this.

Things weren't "suddenly" shut down- this has been in the news for two weeks. Love sensation journalism....it's all in the details.

Just how much does each MN Republican Legislator receive from the WI Republicans in 'finders-fees' for this bone-headed Party Of NO action?

I find the fact that the Anoka County rec dept has TWO directors to be quite alarming. Jennifer Fink and John VonDeLinde? The first director, unless fired, was making six figures. And, this dept has like 10 administrative people and then 50+ maintenance people (as it should be as maintenance is 99.99% of importance and not bleeping marketing garbage). But two directors? I remember an article where AC asked its own employees what could be done to save costs and one of the biggest things was to eliminate supervisors of two to three people. That is what a second director at rec would be! Gonna have to check the committee minutes and what Jim Kordiak allowed. Something smells stfinky here...
