Early in the morning on June 21, 2007, my son Cullen encountered a rowing scull, crewed by five young women in the Saint Paul Harbor and pinned by a heavy current of the Mississippi River. This crew team had misjudged the current and was trapped against the Padelford wharf barge.
Quotes from Saint Paulites

—Louie Anderson, Saint Paul native and comedian
“I'm not indecisive. Am I indecisive?”
—Jim Scheibel, Saint Paul mayor
“Recreation and play means growth, progress, and development, all of which tend toward bettering social conditions.”
