Maplewood resident Sandy Dicke joined Nextdoor, an online neighborhood platform, just a few weeks ago and she doesn't quite know what to make of the barrage of information she's receiving from other users in the Gladstone neighborhood.

Spectators gather at memorial to pay tribute
By 11 a.m., a large crowd gathered at the North St. Paul Veterans Park is fixated on a plane flying over the North High soccer field. Out jump two veteran Navy SEALS parachutists, holding an outstretched American flag.
It doesn’t take long for them to land safely on the ground. But the display leaves a lasting impression on many of those who showed up to pay their respects to veterans — including students from Christ Lutheran.
Community building, operating efficiency drive discussion
Roughly four months into the new Maplewood Community Center-YMCA partnership, city staff are pleased to report it's helping keep both children and the community center afloat.
At the Oct. 26 City Council workshop, parks and recreation director DuWayne Konewko said swim lesson enrollment numbers have already started to increase, additional operational changes at the Maplewood Community Center are in the works, and the two entities are collaborating on ways to better engage diverse youth in wellness activities.
