A fun event’s on tap this week at Silverwood Park


Last year’s event was a brow-furrowing, roll-up-your sleeves workshop. This year, organizers have added fun as an ingredient and re-designed the event as a kid-friendly festival. (submitted phtoto)

The effort is co-sponsored by Falcon Heights and Lauderdale as well as St. Anthony and is subtitled “Action for Sustainable Cities.”It’s part of a movement that is growing not only locally, but also nationally, even internationally, that’s known as sustainability.

On some nights, all of Jerrold Avenue in Arden Hills is lit up thanks to Marty Gerr’s handiwork.
Marty recalls his daughter driving him home from one of his many hospital stays during the past year, and seeing every one of the solar light holders he’d carved for each of his neighbors shining brightly in the night.
Marty, an avid wood carver, has carved many clever little contraptions in his basement woodshed over the years. In addition to the 65 solar light holders he passed out to neighbors, friends and family members, he’s built broomholders, toys for neighborhood kids, whistles and most recently, a Little Free Library for his neighborhood.

19 men arrested during prostitution sting in Mounds View

A total of 19 men were arrested over a two-day period for responding to online advertisements to engage in prostitution at a Mounds View motel.
To catch the perpetrators, police placed phony ads on Backpage.com advertising sex at a motel in Mounds View. The men who responded were arrested after they gave money to an undercover female officer posing as a prostitute.
"We are happy with the results of this investigation," said Mounds View Police Chief Tom Kinney. "I would like to acknowledge the St. Paul Police Department for their expertise in this."

Ramsey County’s bid to buy Vadnais Sports Center not enough

Vadnais Heights Sports Center’s bondholders notified Ramsey County Commissioners Oct. 24 that they were passing on the county’s $10.5 million bid to purchase the 200,000-square-foot sports facility.
The facility houses two regulation hockey rinks with seating for 1,300 spectators, a 100,000-square-foot dome with 1.5 full soccer fields, three batting cages, a 100-meter track, two volleyball courts, concessions, a conference room, offices and an attached sports bar. It was built in 2010 through bonds issued by the Vadnais Heights Economic Development Authority for $26.5 million. After three years of the center underperforming financially, Community Facilities Partners -- the nonprofit that owns the complex -- put the sports center on the market in July for half of its original cost.
