Shepherd boy learned how to be admirably purposeful, determined, and unwavering

By LEON OMAN and http://www.exploreminnesota.com/events/35332/a-crack-in-the-sky

Ahmed Yusuf, a Phillips resident, is Co-Author of “A Crack in the Sky” performed at the History Theatre until March 4, 2018. It is a World Premiere Drama by Harrison David Rivers and Ahmed Ismail Yusuf .

Directed by Faye Price it portrays the journey from Somalia to the U.S.A. in 1984. A young shepherd boy stands in front of his mother to tell her of the decision he has made in the night. He has had enough of the nomadic life, of herding goats and sheep, and is leaving to seek out a better life. With that, he sets off on an adventure that takes him on the road less traveled from Somalia to Minnesota. It’s the epic tale of Ahmed Ismail Yusuf who, inspired by Maya Angelou, discovers the power of the written word. http://www.historytheatre.com/2017-2018/crack-in-the-sky

Abbott Northwestern adds $29.2 M unit in 2019 and Panera Bread March 2018

By HARVEY WINJE

McDonalds restaurant, formerly within Abbott Northwestern (A/N) Hospital at 27th and Chicago Av, closed in May 2016 ending 28 years serving high sugar and fat content fast food in a hospital that often treated some of the results of regularly consuming such foods. Their exodus was a part of A/N’s parent non-profit conglomerate, Allina Health’s (at nearby Midtown Exchange), push to promote healthier food choices for employees and visitors. Panera Bread Bakery/Cafe, based in St. Louis Park, opened Feb. 28th in the same 6,000 square foot space McDonalds occupied and will offer reduced portions and do not sell highly sugared beverages and fried foods. The A/N Community Advisory Committee raised these exact contradictions when McDonalds first opened and advised they not be located there. That advice wasn’t heeded. A/N CAC also requested that there be no exterior McDonald’s signage. This was honored by A/N and McDonald’s in an attempt to subdue street traffic to the location.

Get in the Swim! Because… Phillips Community has been admirably purposeful, determined, and unwavering

Harvey WINJE /ALLEYNEWS | New, enlarged Entrance with canopy to the Phillips Community Center main entrance to enlarged, remodeled, Phillips Aquatic Center, Gymnasiums, and rented offices at 2323 11th Avenue.

The Phillips Aquatics Center opens in early spring.

By JULIE CONAGLIA

The Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board (MPRB) is on track to open its first year-round, indoor aquatics center in the heart of the Phillips Community.

Construction is wrapping up and facility preparations are underway inside the Phillips Community Center, where the Phillips Aquatics Center will have its own check-in desk. A grand-opening date will be announced soon for early spring – likely just about a year following the 2017 groundbreaking.

The project includes renovation of a six-lane competition pool and spectator area, originally part of Phillips Junior High School, demolished in the 1980s. It also adds a new four-lane teaching pool, locker rooms and community room.
