    Is there some reason that 95% of the entries in the Calendar are Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park and Osseo? Are Crystal, Golden Valley, New Hope, and Robbinsdale dead zones as far as events of interest to the community? No city council meetings or school board meetings outside of Brooklyn Center and Brooklyn Park? I’ve been noticing this for months now.
