WSP officials celebrate with 101-year-old resident


West St. Paul resident Frances Nelson celebrated her 101th year with West St. Paul Council Member Ed Iago, Police Chief Bud Shaver, Mayor John Zanmiller, Fire Chief Mike Potts and resident Jim McKie. (Heather Edwards/Review)

If you make it to 100 years old, you’ve probably earned a day for yourself.
In West St. Paul, residents who reach their 100th birthday are honored during city council meetings, during which Mayor John Zanmiller offers a proclamation naming a day after the resident.
Can’t make the meeting? No needed to panic: as resident Frances Nelson learned recently, there are some benefits that come with age.

A Mendota Heights resident will be pounding the pavement this fall to help the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.
Justin Joyce, 31, will be participating in the 32nd annual Medtronic Twin Cities marathon Oct. 6 to raise funds for the victims of the April 15 attack. The fact many victims were waiting for their loved ones at the marathon’s finish line struck a chord with Justin, who ran his first marathon last year in the Twin Cities.
