NoMi Calendar Photo Shoot At North United Methodist...

Photos By John Hoff

A few days ago, about three dozen North Minneapolis citizens showed up at North United Methodist for a photo shoot. The images are intended for a NoMi calendar which will promote our rapidly changing and revitalizing neighborhood...

Pictured above, from top to bottom, Officer Mark Klukow, who has been very willing to lend his smoldering good looks to NoMi promotion efforts. Second photo, Realtor Connie Nompelis (No-buhl-iss, it's Greek) shares some "GET TO NOMI" M & M's with "Tre," who is the son of Nicole and Cliff Doran.

In the next photo, to the right, Connie Beckers the "Goddess of Glass." The woman to her left is Connie's friend and personal tattoo artist. The last photo shows the church marquee, which gives notice that North United Methodist is a "hate free zone."

On less than a shoe string budget, with only informal ad hoc organization behind it, the NoMi branding effort moves forward with great energy.

Attention Readers:

Johnny has Moore Myers/JACC stories to blog about, but he is holding out.

I say we boycott the blog until he gives us what we want..

Finish the story, Johnny!

Officer Klukow is about to win the One Man Minneapolis contest and win some donations for the PEACE Foundation - but only if we go vote each day!

Go to and vote for the mean cop face.

And remember to return each day and vote again!

I hate to agree with the above comment, but: please finish the New JACC Trial story. If you're going to "serial"-ize a story at least be consistant with the chapters! Keep up the awesome work here too. (You should publish a book about "Romancing the Struggle"!)

Those of us watching from afar would appreciate an update on the JACC lawsuit.....

The outcome of this "event" has far greater consequences on the Northside (as a whole) than most people are aware.
