Last year’s event was a brow-furrowing, roll-up-your sleeves workshop. This year, organizers have added fun as an ingredient and re-designed the event as a kid-friendly festival. (submitted phtoto)
An event homeowners, apartment renters - even kids - may want to check out is scheduled for the late afternoon and early evening of Thursday, Nov. 14 at Silverwood Park in St. Anthony.
The effort is co-sponsored by Falcon Heights and Lauderdale as well as St. Anthony and is subtitled “Action for Sustainable Cities.”It’s part of a movement that is growing not only locally, but also nationally, even internationally, that’s known as sustainability.

Some days its best to take a break from the perplexity of the unsolved tales of murdered or missing wives and girlfriends in our metro area and go try to solve a pretend one instead. So I invited my younger daughter for an evening out to crack a murder mystery at the Science Museum of Minnesota in downtown St. Paul.
Shoreview resident and nature photographer Jim Radford is exhibiting prints from his outdoor expeditions to American parks and other outdoor destinations. The exhibit is on display throughout the month of November at the Taste of Scandinavia in Shoreview, Highways 96 and 49.
The annual Fire Safety Poster Contest for fourth and fifth graders was completed during October. Students in those grades, Wilshire Park Elementary and St. Charles Borromeo, create an original poster that includes a Fire Safety or Fire Prevention message. Posters are collected and evaluated by the St. Anthony Fire Department. The theme this year was “Prevent Kitchen Fires” and around 250 posters were done.

On some nights, all of Jerrold Avenue in Arden Hills is lit up thanks to Marty Gerr’s handiwork.
Marty recalls his daughter driving him home from one of his many hospital stays during the past year, and seeing every one of the solar light holders he’d carved for each of his neighbors shining brightly in the night.
Marty, an avid wood carver, has carved many clever little contraptions in his basement woodshed over the years. In addition to the 65 solar light holders he passed out to neighbors, friends and family members, he’s built broomholders, toys for neighborhood kids, whistles and most recently, a Little Free Library for his neighborhood.

Three generations of women in New Brighton’s Moses family have collaborated to produce two recently published books.
Joan Quinn Moses released her first book “Roseville Girl” and her daughter Susanna Moses penned a children’s book titled “Monica’s Silent World,” named after and illustrated by her daughter Monica. Both books made their official debut following a book launch and signing event that took place in Maple Grove in October.
A total of 19 men were arrested over a two-day period for responding to online advertisements to engage in prostitution at a Mounds View motel.
To catch the perpetrators, police placed phony ads on Backpage.com advertising sex at a motel in Mounds View. The men who responded were arrested after they gave money to an undercover female officer posing as a prostitute.
"We are happy with the results of this investigation," said Mounds View Police Chief Tom Kinney. "I would like to acknowledge the St. Paul Police Department for their expertise in this."
