Communities unite against sexual violence

One in six women and one in 33 men are victims of sexual assault, and only a fraction of sexual assault cases are ever reported, according to John Choi Ramsey County Attorney.

“Just in Ramsey County alone, two-thirds of all the cases that are investigated by police agencies never even come to the county judge’s office or prosecution to deal with,” Choi said.

North St. Paul says goodbye to a local icon


In 1995 Ellsworth Erickson revisited photographs taken in Europe during World War II. While serving his country, Erickson developed film to be viewed in 3D. This early version of 3D required photos to be taken from slightly different vantage points. Once developed, the photos were viewed through plastic glasses. (file photo)
Ellsworth Erickson, 92, was World War II vet, popular teacher, civic leader 

North St. Paul lost one of its few remaining World War II veterans on March 3, 2016, when Ellsworth Erickson succumbed to pancreatic cancer.

He will be remembered by the public as a family man, a veteran, a teacher, an artist and a friend. His family members said they will remember him for his loyalty, honesty and optimism that permeated all aspects of his life.

“It was hard because even though he was 92, he acted young; he thought young,” said his daughter Sheryl Erickson in an interview last week.

North St. Paul now marketing ‘new’ single-family home near Webster School 

The transformation of a duplex into a single-family home located across the street from Webster Elementary School in North, St. Paul, is nothing short of amazing, and it is even more amazing that all the renovation work was done by high school students.
