A Woodbury man, who was exploring a tunnel with a friend along the Mississippi River in St. Paul Sunday morning, died when the tunnel filled with water and swept him into the river, according to St. Paul Fire Department officials.
Hudson High School class of 1962 graduate and businessman Wendell A. Petersen has committed $14,000 to a matching funds campaign to complete the fund-raising for the Gateway, the tunnel under County F that connects the campus of River Crest Elementary with Camp St. Croix.
The Hudson Board of Education gave its final approval to an agreement between the Hudson School District and the YMCA to share the maintenance, upkeep and any related expenses of the so-called “Gateway” that will go under County F and link Camp St. Croix and the campus of River Crest Elementary.
The recent decision by the Hudson School Board to allocate $125,000 for their half of the tunnel project to YMCA Camp St. Croix from the new River Crest Elementary School prompted me to do a little math. The results should give you pause. At least I hope so. If not, we are in real trouble.
As we all know by now, the taxpayers will be funding the tunnel from River Crest Elementary to Camp St. Croix, after the board promised to use private money for construction. If a business did this it would be considered a “bait and switch” sales practice and they would be held liable for such unscrupulous behavior.
During the Board of Education’s February meeting, board members voted to support the temporary allocation of fund balance dollars to contribute to the construction of a County F walking underpass between River Crest Elementary and YMCA Camp St. Croix.

Two weeks ago the Hudson School Board made a decision to use taxpayer money to build a tunnel from River Crest Elementary to Camp St. Croix. The arrogance and smugness of School Board incumbents Dan Tjornehoj, Erika Cherrier and their fellow board members’ decisions to once again rape the taxpaying public are outright obscene.
Why are general funds being used for a tunnel to the YMCA Camp St. Croix from the new elementary school?
