Letter: ‘Listens, will work hard’

I am writing to share my support for Mark Traynor for Roseville Area School Board.  
I have lived in the district for over twenty years and all three of my children have attended Roseville Area Schools.  I am very appreciative of the high-quality education they have received.

The Roseville Area Schools need Mark Traynor.
I’ve known Mark for more than 15 years.  I am constantly impressed with his sincere dedication to serve the community, and am excited to see him continue that service on the Roseville Area School Board.

Let’s get cooking! - photos


Patricia Ferrell and Diamond Johnson heat up chili made by Lynette Harris for the community garden harvest fest Oct. 12. All summer neighborhood kids have grown their own and healthy food in the garden, enjoyed a hot meal, and brought home a bag of groceries, donations from Kowalskis and Trader Joes.

Tomatoes, cabbage, peppers, and more were grown by neighborhood kids at the community garden, an empty plot of land donated by the city. (photos by Linda Baumeister/Review)

‘Nice costume — is your tail supposed to be burning?’

The same flame that makes the front porch jack-o-lantern glow eerily can set fire to a costume.

Urban farming, a growing trend, has people in some communities worked up

To address a controversy that seems to be growing in New Brighton, the city council recently established an urban farming task force, charged with making recommendations to the council on all things grown on a farm, from apples to zucchini, from pigs to butterflies.
But chickens seem to be at the core of the issue, and that will likely be the focus of the group.
