News

The Vikings took a shot at their division rivals by signing Packers' defensive end Aaron Kampman to a one-year offer sheet, according to an ESPN website report. Kampman is a restricted free agent, so the Packers have seven days to match the offer. If the Packers decline, they would receive a fifth-round pick as compensation. Kampman logged 67 tackles and 4.5 sacks for the Packers last season.

The Vikings took the same approach with Bears' kicker Paul Edinger a few years ago. Although the Bears elected to match the offer, the Vikings forced their division rivals to dish out more money than they would have to retain their kicker. In this case, the Vikings will either obtain Kampman or force the Packers to pay more than they wanted to for the fourth-year defensive end.

Agreed...we may not get him but worst case is it makes our arch rival, salary cap stretched team shell out a few $$ more than they would have liked. A small victory either way but a no lose situation. I thought Kampman looked halfway decent in the few games I saw him play.

"Aaron Kampman won't be crossing the border anytime soon.

The Green Bay Packers are expected to match the one-year, $1.2 million offer sheet Kampman signed with the Vikings last week, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported Wednesday."

So much for that!

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.
