Extension educator leaves for another job

Laura Kieser, the public face of the University of Minnesota’s Extension Service in suburban farm country in Scott and Carver counties, is leaving for a job in private industry.

Her last day is Friday, after nine years on the job.

Kieser is taking a job with a firm called AgStar Financial Services, where she will assume the title of market intelligence specialist.

“I have valued the relationships I have made within the communities I have served as well as within extension,” she said in an e-mail to frequent contacts. “Agriculture remains strong in Carver and Scott counties. I wish you all the best.”

Yard waste drop-offs pushed back into June

The endless winter has caused a change in the timing for drop-offs of yard waste at the Shakopee tribe’s organic recycling facility.

The city of Shakopee reports that residents can take material there for free now through June 8, instead of the previous cutoff of late May.

Drop-offs are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays. The facility is at 1905 Canterbury Road. Enter off the east side of Canterbury Road/County Road 83.

Waste accepted includes leaves, grass clippings, sod, brush, branches and logs less than 10 feet in length.

Residents of Prior Lake and Savage may also partake. The process resumes in the fall.
