Lyndon King, an itinerant Methodist minister of northern New York, who was named for Josiah Lyndon, colonial governor of Rhode Island in 1768-1769.
Lyndale neighborhood, located in south-central Minneapolis, is bound on the north by Lake Street, on the east by Interstate 35W and Stevens Avenue, on the south by 36 th Street and on the west by Lyndale Avenue South.

3453 Nicollet Ave. S.
Andrew C. Severson, 25, of Rosemount, was cited for trespassing after an incident in the Super America parking lot in which Severson, apparently inebriated, hurled racial insults at a cab driver and refused to pay the man. An officer witnessed Severson ransacking the taxicab, looking for a lost glove. Severson, according to police, told the driver to learn how to speak English and to go back to his own country. The cab driver told the officer he just wanted Severson out of his vehicle and no longer wanted to collect his fare. Severson told the officer that his uncle is a sergeant in the Bloomington Police Department and demanded a ride home from the officer. The officer declined, and Severson threatened to file a complaint and said he had good lawyers. The officer gave Severson his badge number. Severson went into the gas station and made telephone calls seeking a ride. Then, he began offering customers $100 for a ride home. He found a willing driver, but before he left Severson began looking into the officer’s car and causing a scene in the parking lot. That’s when Severson was asked to leave. He refused, and the officer cited Severson for trespassing. He’s not allowed at any Super Americas for a year. Severson told the officer he has “blue blood” in him and that the officer wasn’t living up to the code of conduct.
