    I read an article and I quote Cole saying:

    Cole noted that these issues are day-to-day incidents in the northern suburbs of the Twin Cities.

    “I think that as we move forward, the demographic of this county is definitely on the change,” Cole said. “It was just a matter of time until it got here. This is … what we have to prepare for now. It’s a change for our deputies because they’re not used to this level of activity. So we’ll deal with it as it comes.”

    Will someone PLEASE tell this man this is Pine County not the “burbs” of the cities? If he wants to work in the cities, have at it.

    Also, these incidents seem to be occuring in a specific location- Hinckley. I can think of many reasons why -

    Places like Rock Creek and Pine City, where there there are a lot of cummuters to the Twin Cities, have a lot of characteristics of suburbia/exurbia. Sherrif Cole has it right, as far as its traits, and we’re as close to the burbs as can be. But, PineCountyRes, you are correct as well: The Census defines us as a rural county. The Minneapolis-St. Paul-Bloomington Metropolitan Statistical Area begins at the southern Rock Creek city limits, the Pine County/Chisago County line.

    Individuals also refer to your area(s) as ‘outstate MN’ which you are not – so at least the Pine County Sheriff is acknowledging you are being within the STATE of Minnesota. Plus, be advised, the closer link you have to the greater Twin Cities area, the better chances you have of being included in being noticed (including any funding or resource opportunities to better life in the community). One would think there are enough other critical items to discuss and deal with – like drug activity (resources needed? funding needed to fight this?) – crime and housing needs? I applaud these officers for keeping the area in the news and available to reach out to others who want to further their cause :-) I usually find those who complain are those who are less likely to help – or less open to become part of the solution. Get involved – be part of the solution! PS: I am currently working from Mpls to help your area. I just don’t toot my horn.
