Sheriff honors deputies for ‘meritorious acts’

Pictured from left to right, deputies Mike Casey and Brian Hughes, Sgt. Tim Schwab and Maplewood Officer Brian Tauzell, were all recognized at the ceremony, where Serier applauded them, and deputy Marilyn Hedstrom who couldn’t make it to the event, for their determination to help the man, rather than turning to lethal force, despite endangering their lives. submitted photo

As Roseville home comes down, it lifts up others


Nick Swaggert from Better Futures Minnesota points out elements of a home on South McCarrons Boulevard in Roseville that will be salvaged for resale. The organization, a nonprofit that employs and supports men who have been in the prison system, was hired to deconstruct the home, which was purchased by Roseville last year. Once the home comes all the way down, another nonprofit will build a new home on the site that will house an at-risk family or military veteran. Mike Munzenrider photo

As workers left for lunch on a Tuesday earlier this month, the small home at 196 South McCarrons Blvd. in Roseville was stripped and looked set to be remodeled, except it wasn’t being renovated.
