Everyone knows trains make noise as they rumble through cities, blowing their horns at crossings.
But residents in Shoreview and Little Canada say train racket has amplified considerably in recent months.

A part in that world

Some actors just can’t catch a break. They work in theater for years, dealing with rejection and struggling to make their “big break.”
Wes Mouri just can’t catch a break, but not in the same way: he’s worked nearly nonstop since he graduated from college two years ago.

Kirsta Graf is well known among her peers and the faculty at Mounds View High School (MVHS) for her exuberance, positive attitude and her unwavering commitment to her school. She is a Mustang mentor, a front desk greeter, a Young Life member and the girl’s basketball team manager.
Kirsta has Down syndrome, but she has never let that keep her from her passion for performing and inspiring others.  The 18-year-old senior has had a love for the stage since she was a little girl.  Her mother, Alicia Graf, says it all started in a first grade drama class when her daughter played a roll in the class’s performance of the Lion King.

Arden Hills City Council says no to Xcel franchise fees

Following a second public hearing on utility franchise fees on Monday, Feb. 24, the Arden Hills City Council made a unanimous decision to halt any further discussion of enacting the fees.  Had it been implemented, the franchise fee agreement with Xcel Energy would have added $4.75 per month to city residents’ gas and electric bills -- a $3 flat rate for electricity and $1.75 for natural gas.
“I think we have heard loud and clear from the residents and we have had some good speakers for [franchise fees], but the vast majority have been against. The community does not want franchise fees,” council member Fran Holmes said.
