Local park crew assigned to Casey Jones Trail maintenance, oversight | Pipestone County Star 

Last year during the annual meeting for the Friends of the Casey Jones Trail, Phil Nasby, area supervisor with the State Parks and Trails Division of the Department of Natural Resources surprised the group toward the end of the meeting with news that long-awaited funding had been found to pave five miles of shovel-ready Casey Jones trail in Pipestone County from County Road 16 east to Woodstock. That $600,000 came from the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources , a 17-member body that makes funding recommendations to the legislature for special environment and natural resource projects, primarily from the Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund .
