Are You Happy to See the Vikings Get a New Stadium?

With by a 36-30 vote, a new Minnesota Vikings stadium is on the way. The only remaining stage now is a signature from Gov. Mark Dayton (a stadium supporter), so we wanted to know how Patch readers were feeling about the decision. According to our unscientific poll, as of 12 a.m. Friday, 298 people have voted with 57 percent happy about the passing of the bill. 

Stefanie 'Oberts' Heine – “YES!!!"

Bobby – "I'm surprised to see this didn't end up happening in Arden Hills. What happened to that plan? Was clean up too expensive?"

Melissa Dahl – "Yeah soooooo happy it passed!! After all they are and will always be the MN Vikings!!!! Skol!"

Penna1965 – "Not happy, that money could be better spent for other things."

Julia A. Sherrard – "Awesome news. The Vikings are so much more than just football to this state. The new stadium does come with a Super Bowl, right? ;)"

Minnetonka Student Clears Hurdles of Life Through Laughter

This week's shone on Minnetonka High School student Rashad Cohen, who plans to continue his track career at St. Cloud State. A self-described “biggest momma’s boy ever,” Cohen plans to pamper his mom this Mother’s Day.

Why is he drawn to track? “It is a sport where you can’t blame anyone but yourself on your performance,” Cohen said. “It’s just you against the other runners, one on one.”

Carol Samuelson – "Great story! Rock on Rashad!"

Nicole Snedden – "Rashad, You are going to make a wonderful teacher :) The students ask about you all the time and they are always excited to hear how you did at your track meets. Hard work and success go hand in hand. Keep up the good work."

chyla harrington – "I love you Rashad I am so proud of you I am in tears, congrats love!"

Janie Warner – "Rashad, You are a winner and role model for so many. All of the Warners are very proud of you!"
