Between April 2 and May 11, 2013, 17 occupied residential and apartment burglaries occurred in the Fifth Precinct. 13 of them fit a trend.
An occupied burglary is when the suspect enters the home and a resident is present. Note that this is different than home invasions, which are when a suspect enters the home with the intention of robbing or harming the person inside. In these occupied burglaries, the majority of the residents were asleep and the suspects often did not go anywhere near them. In instances where the resident and suspect saw each other, the suspect fled.
Thanks to everyone who attended our Día del Niño event on Saturday, April 27th at Painter Park. By a stroke of luck that we don't always see organizing events, we finally had a beautiful day! The wonderful sunshine helped make sure we had a great celebration, and I feel good saying the event was a success. More than 200 community members came together to celebrate the neighborhood’s children.
In addition to the nice weather, there were a lot of other things that made this event so special. The music of Carlos Lumbi started the program, which was followed by a variety of delicious food not far behind.
I was having an interesting conversation at Dia del Nino about why people do or don’t get involved in the neighborhood. It was similar to many conversations I’ve had over the years with people about the how and why they got involved in the neighborhood.
Over the years I’ve heard a lot of different answers about how people started getting involved, for some people it was a public safety issue, for others it was a big project like the street lighting proposal, and for some it was because they wanted to get to know their neighbors better.
I’ve also had similar conversations with people I meet from Lyndale who don’t come to a lot of events or volunteer with LNA. As you can imagine these conversations are a bit different, but they might not be as different as you think.
When talking to Jon and Lisa Lewis, there are three themes that emerge and are present in just about every facet of their lives: music, art, and travel, with a special affinity for Paris. Art adorns the walls of their Lyndale home alongside photo albums and objects collected from their travels. All together the couple have been to over 20 countries and to every continent except Australia and Antarctica.
There is still time to nominate Lyndale community members for the Community Service Award! This annual award honors people who selflessly serve Lyndale in an effort to make it a better place. Anyone who has worked towards a safer, more vibrant, and sustainable community in the past 10 years is eligible, they do not need to be a current volunteer. And although we do really have the best Board in the City, Board Members and staff are ineligible for the award. LNA takes pride in the outstanding people in the community and looks forward to recognizing these special individuals at the Annual Meeting. Nominations are due by June 6th.
In theory, floral arrangements inspired by works of art sounds really interesting; in reality it’s not just interesting, it’s magnificent! Every Spring the Minneapolis Institute of Arts hosts its Art in Bloom event in which the museum drips with luscious flowers for four glorious days. Suits of armor made from leaves and “bleeding hearts”, ikebana arrangements mimicking the stance of a crane, a cardinal’s robe constructed of rose petals, and a tornado of flowers all were on view to delight.
