“Pea Soup and Tomatoes”


The title of “Pea Soup and Tomatoes” comes from the words of Scott’s parents. Before the storm, her mother said the sky looked like “pea soup,” while her father said it looked like a tornado was coming. The then two-year-old Scott misheard “tornado” as “tomato.” (submitted photos)

St. Anthony Village author Susan Scott’s first book, “Pea Soup and Tomatoes,” is an inspired-by-true-events children’s book about the May 6, 1965, tornado outbreak that swept the metro area, causing millions of dollars in damages.

St. Anthony author brings tornado history to life
On May 6, 1965, six of the most violent tornadoes in Minnesota history swept across the Twin Cities area. Throughout the course of “The Longest Night,” as the event came to be called, the tornado outbreak killed thirteen people, injured nearly 700 and caused millions of dollars in damages across the seven-county metro area.

Roseville considers former Perc site for park


The Mounds View Public School District owns a 3.32-acre parcel of land at 2959 Hamline Ave. in Roseville, the site of its former district service center. The district hopes to sell the property to the city of Roseville for use as a park. Over the past decade, ISD 621 has spent more than $760,000 in soil remediation and monitoring costs due to the discovery of Perc contamination on the property. (Johanna Holub/Review)

In 2010, the city of Roseville Parks and Recreation Department completed a parks system master plan, which includes acquiring the district’s parcel of land just south of Autumn Grove Park on Hamline Avenue. The space could be used for “court sports,” including baseball, volleyball, pickleball or soccer, according to Parks and Recreation Director Lonnie Brokke. (submitted graphics)
