Maryland “Lucky” Rosenbloom moved to South St. Paul this summer looking for a quiet community with a touch of the urban feel he grew up with.

A lot of people are willing to pay $8 a month to stream movies from the Internet into their homes, but would they put the same amount toward a new baseball field just outside?
That’s the question that will be put to South St. Paul voters next February after the council approved a parks and recreations referendum in its Aug. 20 meeting that would pay for an array of new and improved amenities at Kaposia Landing, McMorrow Field and Wakota Arena.
