St. Paul-based Bremer Bank has been rebranded with a new logo and website. Gone is the trademark eagle that has been associated with the financial services company's logo since its was founded more than 75 years ago. Instead, Bremer's logo has been simplified and modernized along with its website to emphasize the bank's emphasis on the future and its customers. "We are super excited to share our new logo with the world and it reflects that Bremer is moving forward in this fast changing environment," Jeanne Crain, president of Bremer Bank, said in an interview. "We have a sharp new look and we think that it signals a change."

St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter skydived into Harriet Island Regional Park last month to announce the return of Red Bull Flugtag after a nine-year hiatus. What wasn’t announced at the time was the public price tag for the “human-powered gliding” competition and how the Sept. 7 event will be paid for. Red Bull Crashed Ice wasn’t free to bring to St. Paul, and Red Bull Flugtag won’t be, either. The energy drink’s extreme-sporting events come at a cost of roughly $225,000 in public sponsorship, money that the city and its tourism bureau have searched for “under every seat cushion,” according to Visit St. Paul Chief Executive Terry Mattson. “We’ve looked under every seat cushion and came back with $85,000 for the city,” Mattson said Monday. “We haven’t signed a contract or anything like that, but that’s what we deemed was available.

Shortly before being sworn into office, the newest member of the St. Paul City Council received an unhappy social media message from “Mike from Facebook.” The topic: trash. What could be done, said Mike, about the refuse accumulating at Minnehaha Avenue and Duluth Street? Kassim Busuri and his legislative aide, Scott Renstrom, immediately contacted a store owner at the corner to discuss the situation, and then Metro Transit to determine who owns a bench at the location. By the end of the day, the likelihood of getting a trash receptacle installed seemed high. “We’re going to make sure it’s going to be fixed,” said Busuri on Wednesday, minutes after being seated at his first council meeting. His first project as council member may not be one for the record books, but Busuri’s arrival at City Hall holds special meaning for the city’s growing Somali-American population. Busuri, who came to the U.S. from a refugee camp in Kenya 20 years ago, … [Read more...] about Refugee, teacher, turnaround agent, he’s the first Somali-American on St. Paul’s city council
