Sherburne County Veterans Service Office staff saw growth this summer in the numbers of men and women who served the United States from World War II through current conflicts, and who are now turning to the county office for guidance on obtaining any benefits — medical or financial — that may be rightfully theirs.   The staff welcomed 195 veterans for first-time visits to the Sherburne County Government Center office in Elk River from June through August this year, which was up nearly 55 percent from the 126 veterans who made first visits to the office during those months in 2011. You may remember a post I wrote earlier about Elk River being a Beyond the Yellow Ribbon community.  That is important to the vets and the community.  And, it is a badge of honor for Elk River! The regular off...

My broker is Don Sabinske, a member here on the Rain for FOREVER!                                                                            He blogs frequently about local events, issues and programs in his area around Elk River and Zimmerman, sometimes Anoka and Ramsey, in Minnesota.    He is hanging out today and tomorrow celebrating.  And, I would love it if you could go his latest post and wish him a BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY!   His birthday is August 3rd…so between today and tomorrow would be perfect.   You guys are so great, and most of you know him anyway through my posts.    When I left one big box, I went to another, but this time instead of being used, I wanted to find the most successful person and see if they would mentor me.    He did.  He has given me so much guidance and counse...

Wild West Days Are Coming to Zimmerman Minnesota This Weekend! This is just a teaser…..Wild West Days are roaring into Zimmerman next week from Thursday, May 24 through Monday, May 28, 2012. In the Fall of 1970, a small group of Zimmerman residents decided to create a fund-raising community group with the expressed purpose of providing community aid, ranging from projects from helping the local Volunteer Fire Department to providing help for families in need. Their ultimate goal was to purchase a piece of land and erect a community building on it. This group became known as the Zimmerman Civic Club (ZCC). Within three months, the ZCC had announced its first large scale fundraising event -- Wild West Days (WWD). By the time the celebration was held, membership in the ZCC was listed at 77...

The conclusions reached by the courts and announced on Tuesday will put some politicians in a bind while others don't seem to mind the changes to their districts.  This is the rundown right now..

Dave Brown, R-Becker, who currently serves in Senate District 16 — falls in Senate District 15. Sens. Michelle Benson, R-Ham Lake, and Michael Jungbauer, R-East Bethel, fall in Senate District 31.

Former Zimmerman BMX biker, James Rienstra, will begin his long haul from Zimmerman, Minnesota  to Anchorage, Alaska a 3,300-mile bicycle trek on Friday, May 20. He is doing this for charity and the money raised will go to the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund because of Shaver's cancer struggles and because Rienstra wants the money to stay in Minnesota.  He is honoring his father who died of pancreatic cancer five years ago.   He hopes to raise at least $10,000 and much, much more.    Monies are already coming in via his personal blog at http://minnesota2alaska.blogspot.com/ James says he will not see any of the money that is raised through his blog, which utilizes the Razoo application. He will also be documenting the trip on Facebook.com-Minnesota2Alaska. Clicking on th...

It was just a week ago that Zimmerman High School held its Prom.  You remember Prom, right.  Good or bad, it was exciting.   The students had a nasty night to be dressed in their finest, and I am sure that a few hairdos were not what the girls had planned, but there was an array of finery as the students each got a turn to show off at the Grand March on a real red carpet.  And there were even a few top hats. The gymasium was decorated as Casiono Royale.  Imagine working so hard to get the sports facility transformed into an elegant space as a luxe hotel lobby.  Eighteen people spent 18 hours transforming the gym.  After the Grand March,  students made their way to Northern Lights Ballroom and Banquet Center in Pease for fine dining and to dance the night away. This year's prom queen was...

Take your horse camping - Sand Dunes Horse Camp on Lake Ann in Sand Dunes State Forest Sand Dunes State Forest is located in Sherburne County Orrock Township Minnesota nestled into the east side of the Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge. The land here was originally virgin prairie and when the pioneers settled the area they began to farm the land. The crops that were farmed were oats, rye, wheat, barley, potatoes and hay. The effects of the dust bowl drought during 1933 and 1934 brought an end to most of the farming in the Sand Dunes area. During 1941 concerned citizens began experimental tree planting at Sand Dunes to control the drifting sands. Hardwoods and conifers were planted along with several other species during this time. The conifers growth and survival surpassed the hardwood...

Here are some quick states on what is happening on homes listed in Zimmerman, MN.Currently there are 182 active listings. Of those listings there are 80 listings that are under $200,000.  The scary news for sellers of a higher priced home is that right now there are 19 sales pending and 18 of those are on houses that are under $200,000.  That means anything over $200K is not moving in Zimmerman.  There was 17 closed sales in the last 30 days.  Of those sales 13 were under $200,000.  Look at it the other way though if you are a buyer its a great time to try to get a steal on a home over $200,000 in Zimmerman.  There are some nice homes available and many of those homes are on acreage.  Its a great time to buy! -30- Chuck Carstensen is a Realtor with The Discovery Team at RE/MAX; helping ...

The second annual energy expo in Elk River will be taking place on April 19th, 2008 at the City Hall from 10:15-1:00pm. This is a great place to learn what's going on in Elk River to go "green" and to help with conservation and recycling. There will be activities for the kiddos and tours for families to the Elk River Library (which was built from recycled materials) and also to two other off campus locations. I invite you all to come and check it out! What a great learning experience for the whole family! Lindsey HasfordColdwell Banker Vision231 Main Street - Elk River - MN 55330763-241-5488 (office)  763-218-1347 (cell)lindseyhasford@coldwellbankervision.comhttp://www.hasfordhomes.com/  Subscribe to Lindsey's Blog by Email
