'Ruth' will live on in legend

People still ask, 'Who is Ruth?'
For quite a while, I have ended my columns with "Hey Ruth, you hang in there!"
I don't intend to stop, but now an explanation is once again in order.
The "Ruth" in question was Ruth Goethel. She was the wife of Arno Goethel, the former executive sports editor of the St. Paul Dispatch and Pioneer Press.

Frank Rog Amphitheatre, located in Central Park in Roseville, was the first city facility to be named after a living person. The amphitheatre hosts dozens of performances each year in the park Rog called the "crown jewel of the park system."

If you or your children or friends have walked or played in any of Roseville’s 30 parks, you can give credit to Frank Rog, who was parks and recreation director from 1960 to 1987.
