Letter: Garbage hauling choices

After reading the previous letter from a new Roseville resident who attempts to speak for all of us and to make sure our City Council doesn’t think so too, I want to make two comments.  I have lived here for 49 years and found it to be a wonderful town with many excellent attributes and services and place to raise children.

Another thanksgiving day

Everyday is a day when we give thanks for the blessings that we receive. The story of the early pilgrims gets special attention in the fall season. The birth of our Lord is remembered during December. We have just finished another Good Friday and Easter weekend time of giving special thanks. At meal time we sit down, bow our heads and give thanks for our food.

Is it illegal to be annoying?

I recently read an article about ordinances in some states that make annoying conduct illegal. Such ordinances have frequently been found unconstitutionally vague and, therefore, unenforceable. A least one Minnesota city had its “no loud music” ordinance found unenforceable because of vagueness. Why should it be illegal and chargeable for teens to play loud rock music while driving through downtown at midnight, but probably not illegal or chargeable for a senior citizen to play WCCO news at high volume when driving downtown at midday?

Senior battery leading the way for Beacons fastpitch

After making a nice run in the section playoffs last year, the Concordia Academy fastpitch softball team faced a number of questions as this season approached. The Beacons graduated a bunch of seniors off last year’s squad so there were some holes.
As head coach, Gina Tupper began to assemble a roster, two positions seemed pretty well locked up and they are two of the more important spots on the field--pitcher and catcher. Seniors Courtney Larsen and Claire Heilman wasted little time showing the new players the way.

Roseville fastpitch team hitting its stride

During the past three seasons, when some asked Roseville Area High School fastpitch softball coach Julie Standering how her team was doing, she would say “They’re getting there.” Now in her fourth season at the helm, Standering has changed her answer.
