North Hts. Lutheran joins global effort 

In American stores, girls and women may find an entire aisle of feminine hygiene products for managing their menstrual cycles so they can continue going to school, working or doing sports. They wouldn’t accept anything less.

But in remote areas of developing world, girls are often shunned, forced to miss school when they are menstruating. 

Sometimes they skip food and water, because they have to sit apart from others on cardboard or moss for a few days or they may use leaves, corn husks, mattress stuffing, newspapers or cow dung to manage their periods. They often get vaginal infections.

Rice Creek Commons’ development could assist in name change

Attempting to change the name of County Highway 10 is nothing new for the city of Mounds View. It’s been an ongoing topic since the early 2000s. 

At points, the undertaking has seen progress, solutions and agreements with other cities. However, an equal amount of setbacks and delays have been a part of the story as well. That’s why the busy thoroughfare is still called County Highway 10, according to Mounds View City Council member Gary Meehlhause.

Local 15-year death investigation rekindled by reconstruction of victim’s face

Police ask for help identifying woman 

A woman who was found dead in New Brighton 15 years ago has never been identified, but now the image of her face has reemerged through facial reconstruction technologies, and though it’s only a likeness, police are hoping it will lead to new information in the cold case. 

The investigation of the woman’s death began in the fall of 2000, when her body was found by two hikers just off a little-used path in Long Lake Regional Park. Police believe the corpse had been lying there for at least two months by the time it was found Sept. 15.

The New Brighton Department of Public Safety requested assistance from the FBI last year, specifically to have them reassemble characteristics of the woman’s face using facial reconstruction. The image was released to the public last week.
