Perennial boys hockey power Hill-Murray High School began the 2013-2014 season with one major goal in mind. Well, maybe there is more than one thing on the team’s mind.
If I were a mind reader, I would say the Pioneers want to make their 27th bid to the state boys hockey tournament. And once there, I would say the one goal they may have in mind would be to win one more game than they have won the last two years they were in the tournament.
Japanese Dance with Taiko Drum was one of the many cultures highlighted at the annual Taste of Weaver held Nov. 21. Eleven ethnic performances took center stage. A potluck followed. Louai Abualreesh, second from left and now in middle school, came back with his friends for a Palestinian folk dance, a line dance for weddings and joyous celebrations. Louai performed in second grade with his older sister and has performed at the Taste of Weaver since. Alijah Ellingson, Mubaraq Adedayo, and Creshawn Prior made their moves in a hip-hop dance.
Each week the staff at the Roseville Library answers more than 2,500 questions on every subject under the sun. Here are some of the most interesting ones they’ve gotten lately. Q. How can I get a list of the e-books I’ve read on OverDrive?
Much has been written and discussed in the media about frivolous lawsuits. Everyone seems to think of the hot McDonald’s coffee lawsuit as being “frivolous,” when, in fact, the injured customer sustained serious burns to her body as a result.

The Minnesota Rules of Court were recently amended to include the following requirement as to “proportionality:”
Thanksgiving is a time for family, friends, giving thanks and helping those in need. With Thanksgiving here, families across the nation will be celebrating their own traditions in their own way. Between the food and the festivities, no one family does it quite the same, but I encourage everyone to add one thing to their day – take time to say thanks.
The Hill-Murray boys basketball team is approaching the upcoming season with many question marks.
Pioneers head coach Dick Ghizoni said, “We lost five starters to graduation. We are returning many players with little varsity experience.”
Ghizoni continued, “We have some good inside and good outside shooters. We will have a good mix of senior class and junior class players.”
Achiever Academy, a small school in Vadnais Heights devoted to hockey, made a trip to Polar Arena Nov. 14, and the Aces gave a skating lesson to the North High Polars.
Except for North goalie Marit Larson, who was just short of perfect, in goal, the Polars found getting into the Aces’ zone a difficult chore.
Larson turned aside 42 of the 44 missiles ticketed for the 24 square feet behind her. She held the opposition scoreless until the third period. Through the first 34 minutes of action, Larson had stopped 27 shots on goal.
When you attend a Tartan High School boys hockey game this season, make sure you pick up a roster as you enter the arena.
The old saying, “You can’t tell the players without a program” may well hold true. Last season the Titans had no less than 14 seniors. Those players have since graduated and moved on to other pursuits, and their co-head coach Jim McElmury has retired.
When talking about his expectations for the 2013-2014 hockey season, Tartan co-head coach Steve Romanchuk succinctly stated, “We lack experience.”
Behind the three-goal hat trick of junior center Ellie Tabaka, the Tartan High School girls posted their third straight hockey win Thursday, Nov. 21.
Also with a pair of goals was senior forward Hannah Croonquist.
