Volleyball: Pioneers find a way to sideline Polars

If you were not a part of the jam-packed, wildly cheering crowd at Hill-Murray Field House Oct. 15, then you missed one of the very best volleyball matches between rivals that has been played since the inception of the sport over three decades ago.
The match went five games and provided everything that anyone could ever ask for from two well-matched adversaries.

Join in a new  Roseville holiday tradition  - the first annual Ovalumination lighting event - to mark the Guidant John Rose Oval’s 20th anniversary. Hundreds of trees will be illuminated around the OVAL from early November to Jan. 31, and will be free for all to view.
Individuals, community groups and local businesses are invited to chose  a 12-, 20- or 30- foot arborvitae or evergreen from over 300 surrounding the Oval and sponsor the LED lights that will illuminate it during the holidays.

Q & A with Mounds View School Board candidates

Voters will elect three residents to serve four-year terms on the Mounds View School Board, ISD 621 on Tuesday, Nov. 5.
In that race, incumbents Jon Tynjala, Marre Jo Sager, Greg Madsen and challenger John Hakes will be competing for the three open seats.
On Nov. 5, voters will also decide whether or not the district will continue to receive its $11.5 million annual property tax levy for another 10 years. If the levy is renewed it would begin in 2015 and continue through 2023. ISD 621 currently receives nearly 30 percent of its funding through property taxes.
