County warns it won’t tolerate dumping
Illegal dumping at the University of Minnesota Rosemount Research Center will not be tolerated, says a letter addressed to U of M President Kenneth H. Keller and approved by Dakota County commissioners on Tuesday, Jan. 5.
The letter was prompted by the disclosure last week that the research center had allowed the city of Minneapolis to dump soil containing old landfill debris at a site leased by the Minneapolis Police Bomb Squad. The bomb squad was constructing an earthen berm to muffle the sound of detonations at the site.
Dumping of the debris-laden material violated the county’s solid waste ordinance, said Donna Anderson, public health director.
Fay Thompson, assistant director of environmental health and safety at the university, said the berm was “intended to be an improvement to the land.” She expressed apologies to the county and to the city of Rosemount, adding that the dumping incident should not have occurred.
She said the university has asked the Minneapolis Police Department to remove all trash material from research center land. The material, hauled from a Minneapolis Park Board excavation project, apparently came from a demolition debris landfill that was more than 50 years old.

Charles P. Doyle of Rosemount, who sought an airplane of $10,000 from the government, lost in a decision Wednesday set by Federal Judge Gunnar H. Nordbye....
The action in the case was brought by Doyle, a Northwest airlines pilot and aviation enthusiast, who claimed he was promised a C45 transport plane in exchange for his P40 fighter plane of World War II vintage.
Doyle charged if he could not get the plane he wanted, he should receive $5,000, plus another $5,000 for loss of the use of the C45.
It was contended by Doyle, he had entered into a contract with the air force for exchange of the two planes at the Wright-Patterson air force base museum near Dayton, Ohio. The government maintained there never was such a contract.
