A courtroom clash over a Ramsey Hill garage that's drawn opposition from next-door neighbor Garrison Keillor was put off Tuesday in hopes a mediator could help resolve the St. Paul neighborhood dispute.

Ramsey County District Judge Edward Cleary announced the mediation at a hearing where Keillor was going to seek a temporary restraining order barring construction of the three-stall garage and studio behind the home of neighbor Lori Anderson.

The two sides were given until Jan. 23 to try to settle differences over the project, which earlier had been approved by the city's Heritage Preservation Commission.

On Monday, Keillor and his wife, Jenny Lind Nilsson, filed suit to block the two-story addition in the 400 block of Portland Avenue. On Tuesday, the "Prairie Home Companion" host showed up in court, along with legal representatives. Anderson and her fiancé, Paul Olson, attended without a lawyer.

Olson said afterward that the judge's proposal seemed a fair way to resolve the conflict, and the couple looked forward to mediation.

Get Mayor Coleman involved in this, he would make a good mediator.
It will generate more taxes dollars on the property.

St.Paul's style would be more; to let them build it then decide it doesn't meet specifications and order it to be removed and become the person property of Magner for the taking!

Hey Bob, weren't you deleting comments that had nothing to do with the story a while back? Yes.
What they above two posts have to do with the story is anyone's guess.
