Letter: Support for Mark Traynor

I spent my entire teaching career of 35 years in the Roseville Area Schools and am very proud to say it! I have always considered our community (I am also a resident) very fortunate to have high quality people on our school board who have vision, fiscal responsibility, the best interests of students at heart and have not pushed personal agendas. This is why I am supporting Mark Traynor for School Board.

Thanks to a sizeable grant received by Washington County, two new signalized intersections will be coming to the Village area in downtown Lake Elmo.
The county was awarded a $462,000 grant from the Metro Municipal Agreement Program to “aid in the cost of safety improvements” along Trunk Highway 5. The funds will be used to install signals on Highway 5 at both spots where Lake Elmo Avenue (County Road 17) intersects the highway. Dedicated right-turn lanes will also be constructed as part of the project, which is slated to begin in September 2014.

St. Anthony volleyball wins playoff opener

The St. Anthony Village High School volleyball team finished the regular season with a losing record (11-13) but that was good enough to get the Huskies a home match in the first round of the playoffs. They made the most of the opportunity and now have a new opportunity.
St. Anthony, seeded fourth in the South sub-section of Section 5AA, beat fifth-seeded Mound Westonka in four games (25-16, 25-14, 12-25, 25-12). The White Hawks won just three matches in the regular season but was still seeded ahead of three other teams in the sub-section.
