Save for a triumph of write-in candidates, the Mounds View city council is likely to remain unchanged following election day Nov. 4, as the mayor and two council members up for reelection are running unopposed to keep their seats.

The Allina Medical Transportation center in Mounds View is a state-of-the-art staging area for paramedics and the ambulances and high-tech equipment they field in to medical emergencies.
On Aug. 28, the center served another function: the site of reunion for twin girls and the paramedics who helped ensure their safe delivery one morning three years ago.
